A group of my friends and I stayed at Christina's property for Coachella Weekend 1. We want to thank Christina for making the house available to us for an early check in at 1pm.
Things that could have been better:
Upon checking in, we noticed the rooms were not as described. In the original ad, it states two rooms each had two twin beds in there but when we looked one of the room was missing a twin bed. One of our friends had slept on the floor the whole weekend :( when each of us did pay $400 to secure the home. I did reach out to Christina and she said she was just made aware from the cleaners an accident had happened so they had to take the mattress out - but when we looked again there was no sign of another bed frame in there that could have supported another twin bed?
The ice machine in the fridge did not work sadly, so our friends had to stop out at the store to buy bags of ice each day to help make our drinks stay cold - luckily we brought a cooler. The fridge also had opened food left from previous renters? We found eaten food and egg shells in the egg carton) so it was not as clean as we had hoped. We also found underwear and a pair of leggings under the main master/queen bedroom that did not belong to us.
Overall we're not a very high maintenance bunch but I think due to Coachella weekend price surge on these rentals we hoped for a nice clean house and it made us a bit upset when the house had dirty underwear, pants, egg shells/left over food, and missing twin bed.
TIPS FOR RENTERS:
-Coachella goers, although the house is 2 miles away, the traffic set up is designed where no cars/pedestrians are allowed on certain roads/paths. It's not walkable, it took us over 2 hours to walk home the first night. So please use taxi/uber service if you plan to rent this home for Coachella - that's what we did for the remainder of the 2 days. - This is no fault of the owners.
-Bring extra toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies (we've stayed a homes for large groups and the toilet paper and other needs are usually fully stocked for a group of 10 but we had to go out to buy a lot of basic items for the weekend)
-Bring your own lounge chairs for the pool, they only provide two lounge chairs
Aside from the above items, the home overall is good and Christina has been responsive to all of our questions. We did lose the house key the last morning of our stay while we were cleaning out the house and was charged $100 from the damage deposit
