One bedroom had broken blinds and one bathroom had leaky shower. Tv had not many channels but lots of Chinese ones! Told landlord he offered to send someone round to mend the shower but told him not to bother as we didn't want to stay in for a maintenance man. he dropped off iron and ironing board plus another fan for third bedroom which was needed as such hot weather. He refunded us cleaning money and 200$ for other faults. The position of apartment is great such a shame that we had to put up with all these faults. Kitchen didn't have enough equipment he brought a toaster round for us too. We came out to go for a big family wedding and must admit we were all upset by these seemingly endless problems. This condo could be so lovely can't believe these problems were not looked at before we came. Our money was paid in January!!

We were 4 adults and the cottage worked great for us, being close to Hollywood and universal, also Santa Monica beach which is 10 minutes or so away. Many shops and restaurants are also near by as is a couple of supermarkets. Many thanks Evelyn. The Saunders family from London.
