What Past Guests Are Saying
Good for a weekend
The house is very spacious but most of the rooms need renovations. Kitchen is well equipped (again, older appliances).
The pool/garden area is lovely though!
For a weekend trip it's a good choice.
Beautiful pool and yard make up for missteps indoors
La Casa Contenta held up to its beautiful photos outdoors, with a nicely landscaped backyard, clean and comfortable pool area, and nice front yard with a view of the mountains. The gate, and parking were easy and convenient - with enough room for 4 cars. Although slightly outside of the movie colony area, it is very close to an albertsons, Starbucks and small shopping center (5 mins drive).
The interior was clean, although not well cared for. Two of the four beds had metal frames sticking 6" out past the box springs, making for a danger zone near the beds and several of the bedroom areas (private bathrooms, closets, furniture) had certainly seen better days. The kitchen was also clean and fairly easy to use but was missing some of the basics (like a pitcher, coffee filters, sharp knives, etc.). The best areas were the common areas, which is where our group of 8 spent most of the time. And, the way I had read the layout, I expected the 5 rooms to be separated. 2 of the 5 rooms are attached to other rooms - 1 is the living room of the casita and the other is a tiny room off of the master bedroom.
The biggest disappointment came from the rental company, McLean, which sent us mixed messages about the check-out time and was much less responsive to my questions and concerns once they had my money. When I picked up the keys and house directions at their office I asked for instructions on using the hot tub, gate, fireplace, etc.- which I was told was included in the plastic bag they gave me full of brochures. It was not. They also have a strict check-out policy for a 10 am departure, which my agent told me in advance would be moved to noon, free of charge, if no one was checking the next day(usually the case). So, when I called McLean on Saturday to bump the check-out time I ended up having to battle on the phone with a receptionist for 5 minutes who said checkouts past 10 am always cost $300! Ugh!
Overall, it did the job for our bachelorette weekend.
