We were very much looking forward to staying at this place. The pictures looked great and we thought that the place is well worth for it's high price. The location is amazing, literally less than 5 min to Venice beach. 15 min walk to Abbot Kinney, so pretty cool.
BUT: the place absolutely overpriced! We paid more than 3000$ for a week and expected the apartment to be at least clean! Unfortunately, it was not clean at all and it was absolutely not well maintained! First of all the bathroom: the toilet seat was loose and there was pi from somebody else all over the toilet, the bathtub was rusty and dirty, the glasses in the kitchen had old lipstick on 'em - I mean, there is a dishwasher, I bought pads for it and used it, but apparently, nobody else has done it before. There were old chips in the microwave, we had to clean the freezer ourselves, there were spiders and spider webs as well as ants in the apartment. Furthermore, the outdoor space does not look like shown on the pics at all. The caped is gross, the BBQ grill is so dirty that we were reluctant to use it. Also, the door to the outdoor space could not be locked so it was open whenever we left the apartment. Therefore, we had to take all of our valuables with us.. I mean, I don't get me wrong, I don't expect Airbnb apartments to be perfect, but if you pay so much money, I expect the place to be at least clean and maintained to a certain extend!
I wish I could write a more positive review, but I was really disappointed. Also, because I contacted the hosts immediately to point out all these issues, However, I got a response 1 day before we were about to leave. They offered to clean the apartment again and apologized for the dirt, but seriously, they made us wait for 1 week and offered us to clean it one day before our departure? Seriously? I would have appreciated this offer a couple of days earlier. Anyway. If this places is going to be cheaper in the future and you don't care much about cleanliness, feel free to book it. But if you are looking for a nice place to stay, you should search for something better maintained and cleaner.
