House rulesINFORMATION DURING YOUR STAY
An Information Booklet has also been placed in each rental for guests to review upon check-in. Your host has personally decorated each unit in a unique theme furnished with one of a kind collectible items and turned her estate into a tropical paradise graciously shared with guests from all around the world. In turn, we ask that you respect your host and the property and abide by the rules set forth in this informational booklet. Violations of rules will be charged against your security deposit with amount of fines determined by owner.
AMENITIES: All common area amenities are for guests use. Since our guests come from all time zones, we allow 24/7 use as long as other occupants are not disturbed.
BBQ: Supplies are kept inside BBQ drawers. Never bring unit dishes, glasses, etc. outdoors which can be broken or lost. Buy paper cups, plates, etc. for outdoor eating and drinking. Clean BBQ immediately after use in respect for the next guest. Throw trash in appropriate cans in trash area.
CANDLES: Only flameless candles allowed
CHECK-IN: 3:00 PM
CHECK-OUT : 11:00 AM.
CHILDREN: Never leave small children unattended outdoors.
COUPONS: We offer our guests discount coupons for dining, entertainment, attractions, car rental and more (as per availability.) Come to our office during business hours for coupons.
COFFEEMAKERS: We have placed permanent reusable filters inside the filter holder, so guests do not need to buy disposable coffee filters. Just remove permanent filter from filter holder, dump coffee grounds in trash can, and rinse out. Never throw permanent filter out!
DISCOUNTS: No discounts are offered for any reason (weekly, monthly, senior citizen, frequent guest, etc.) as we have priced our rentals so low we stay booked solid. There are ways, however, to save money on your booking: book directly with us rather than a 3rd party agency, pay cash rather than Paypal or credit card, and participate in our referral program (see “Referral program.”)
DISHES: All dishes, pots, pans, silverware, etc. must be washed, dried, and put away in their original location in the cupboard prior to your departure as it is not included in housekeeping duties.
ELECTRONICS: Additional multiple outlets have been installed so never unplug our electrical items. Re-setting clocks and plugging electrical items back into the walls is not included in housekeeping duties.
EMERGENCY CALLS: We attempt to provide all guest information in a clear, concise, and thorough manner on our website, in our Check-in instructions, and in our Information Booklet. Our office is open during normal daytime office hours to accept walk-ins, emails, phone calls and respond to guest’s needs. All of our rentals are self check-in. Guests are emailed their check-in instructions a few days prior to their arrival. Guests are asked to review and print them out. Any questions/concerns should be addressed upon receipt of email. Our guests arrive at all times day and night, as they come from all parts of the world. On occasion, due to guest’s failure to read or print out their check-in instructions we receive “midnight phone calls.” We are not a hotel/motel employing personnel for round the clock 8 hr. shifts and it would be unreasonable to expect your host to be on call 24/7 so phone calls/emails outside of our regular business hours will NOT be responded to!
EXTENDING YOUR STAY: If you’d like to extend your stay, just ask! We will check availability for you. But do not wait until you are ready to check out. Plan ahead!
FIRE PIT: Skewers are inside fire pit and wood found in a container next to it. Never bring unit dishes, glasses, etc. outdoors which can be broken or lost. Buy paper cups, plates, etc. for outdoor eating/drinking. Clean fire pit immediately after use in respect for the next guest. Throw trash in appropriate cans in trash area.

HAIR COLORING: Cosmetology services using dyes or chemicals that will stain our sink, shower, towels, etc. are not allowed. If you already have a temporary or semi-permanent color in your hair, please bring your own hair towel.
HOUSEKEEPING: We do not provide maid service or replenish housekeeping items during your stay. This is how we keep our rates low for you and also respect your privacy.
Cleaning supplies are provided for your use during your stay under bathroom sinks and/or lower kitchen cupboards.
INFORMATION BOOKET: Each unit is provided with an Information Booklet which provides detailed information for our guests. Never deface, remove pages or the booklet from unit.

If full payment is not immediately provided, legal action will be taken.

The washer and dryer take 8 quarters each.The office can provide you with quarters for U.S. dollars, and sell you laundry detergent pods for 50 cents each and fabric softener sheets for 10 cents each. Never wash host provided “DRY CLEAN ONLY” items (blankets, comforters, duvets, pillows, etc.) Always clean up behind yourself in respect for the next guest.
LEGAL DISCLOSURE: Guests are “lodgers” not “tenants” and agree to abide by all terms/rules set forth. Owner/management reserves the right to refuse or terminate lodging with no advance notice and no refund in the event guest(s) become nit-picking, disruptive, unruly, problematic, demanding, violent or threatening to host or others.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Très mal accueilli.
La propreté laisse a désirer nous avons retrouver des cheveux sur le taie d'oreiller dès notre arrivé.
Araignée au plafond, le carrelage est dégueulasse.
Le lit que nous occupions dans l'hacienda espagnole est sur roulette et un tapis de mousse est mis sur le matelas, on a très mal dormi, on a pas osé l'enlevé pour ne pas perdre 25 dollars sur la caution...
La piscine est froide et petite par rapport aux photos et la profondeur est de 1 mètre c'est plus une mare aux canards, l'eau du jacuzzi est bonne mais trouble.
Le barbecue est sale personne ne s'en sert
Beaucoup de règle a l'intérieur de la maison sur le savoir vivre mais quand on est pas très accueillante et que le logement laisse à désirer c'est un comble.
La caution de 100 dollars vous ait rendu en parti ( 95 dollars )
Je vous conseille plutôt un hôtel et mieux situé que woodland hills, à cause des bouchons nous avons perdu du temps ds la voiture.
Voila n'hésitez pas à lire les autres commentaires qui vont dans mon analyse, personnellement je ne l'ai pas fait et je regrette un peu.
J'ajoute que si vous avez un problème ou une question, Cheri vous répondra par mail, pourtant elle habite dans la maison en face situé à 20 mètres entouré de caméra vous aurez la sensation d'être épié.
The cleanliness left to be desired we find hair on the pillow when we arrived.
Spider on the ceiling, tile is disgusting.
The bed we occupied in the Spanish hacienda is on wheels and a foam pad is placed on the mattress, we slept very badly, was not removed dared not lose 25 dollars on deposit ...
The pool is cold and small compared to the photos and the depth is 1 meter it is a duck pond, water jacuzzi is good but trouble.
The barbecue is dirty nobody uses
Many rule inside the house on the etiquette but when you are not very welcoming and the accommodation is lacking is the limit.
The deposit of $ 100 you have visited party (95 dollars)
I recomend a hotel and more convenient than woodland hills, because of the caps we lost time in the car.
That does not look at the other comments that are in my analysis, I personally did not and I regret a little.
I would add that if you have a problem or question, Cheri will reply by email, yet she lives in the house in front 20 meters surrounded by camera you will have the feeling of being watched.
We had a very pleasant stay in Los Angeles. One regret is not being able to visit all because of the vastness of the city. I promise we'll be back in LA
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable à Los Angeles.
Un seul regret est de ne pas avoir pu tout visiter à cause de l'immensité de la ville.
C'est promis nous reviendrons à L.A.
We like it !
Thank you Cheri !
