Very clean & loved the pool
Spent four nights here with my husband and two kids (13 and 10). Very happy with our stay. Easy check in and out. Property was extremely clean and well-stocked. Owner is quite nice and was quick to respond the couple times a question arose. Great to have a separate room for the kids with each kid getting their own bed. We went to both Disneyland and Universal while there, and the drive was totally fine (30 minutes without traffic). Biggest PROS were general cleanliness, the bedrooms set up, very comfortable king mattress in the master bedroom (and I say that as someone who is obsessed with having a good mattress), spacious shower with good water flow, nice general vibe and decorations, and a wonderful and very clean pool where my kids literally spent seven hours one day. Can't say enough good things about the pool. The neighborhood seemed like a safe, mostly middle-class type neighborhood. There's a large Ralph's grocery store about five minutes' drive away, and we got good takeaway food nearby twice. In terms of things to be aware of, there is no laundry onsite (there is a coin-op laundromat about a mile away), and there is no dishwasher. There is also very little common space inside--the apartment is basically a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bathroom--so hanging out was done either in the bedrooms or outside by the pool. The owner might consider swapping out the lounge chair in the kitchen area for a dining table, as I think that would be more functional. And it would be fantastic if the owner installed shelving in the bathroom and put up a few towel hooks, as the bathroom isn't really set up to accommodate four people's stuff--it's manageable, but that would help a lot. In sum, we loved our stay, we would definitely stay again, and we thought the place and the owner were great!!!
