Guestbook comments from the owner

We had wedding to attend in downtown L.A. last December. Sheida's beautiful house is so perfect for us and anybody who needs a comfortable home in a quiet area but still very close to shopping area, diners, markets and public transportation. The house is so warm , spacious and neat. I stayed there twice and Sheida always make sure that the house is ready for us to enjoy and relax.

The location is best, we can practically walk to supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, car rental and public transportation. It also only blocks away from the freeway entrances, which make us so easy and fast to go to any further destinations.

Thank you Sheida for providing us with such a beautiful, clean and spacious home for our holiday. Definitely will come again.

I had the pleasure to stay at Shedia in February. Her house is beautiful and huge. Plus it has a basketball hoop. Great location!!! Shedia was super responsive and helpful. she was just a phone call or text message away. I definitely recommended this house.

Lovely home, but dirty and shabby.

  • 2 of 5

Don't get me wrong, Sheida is a fine hostess, and is very approachable and attempted to correct the issues, but having stayed in numerous homes around the country, this one was a disappointment. We paid a premium nightly price plus an extra 1/3 to have a few extra guests sleeping on couches (as we both had agreed to in advance). I won't list all the issues, but we arrived to a dirty, uncleaned home. Check in was 12:00. After calling her at 3:00, she came over to clean, stating her housekeeper was very ill. Why didn't we get a call earlier letting us know? That would have been all we needed. The house needed a thorough cleaning, not just vacuuming. So many things were not as expected from the website: spa heating was erratic, steam shower broken, cable tv had basically no channels, dvd player did not work, numerous light fixtures non functioning, no laundry or dishwashing soap, not even a salt shaker. For the price we paid, it was a disappointment. Sheida did provide us with minimal compensation for missing half a day while cleaning was done (first by us, then by her). She has a great heart, but needs to update her photos and repair things in the home.
