Pros: Very comfortable beds, cheap, room for 3 without surcharge, no cleaning fee, clean at first glance, nice location and view from upper unit, very close to ocean, sweet landlord, upon close inspection I found no dangerous looking spiders, bedbugs, or ants indoors, beautiful fruit plants everywhere.
Cons: Wasp nest at entrance, 50 year old stove actually shorted and burned a welding hole in the pan with 3 foot sparks, screens all have wide gaps around edges and some holes letting in many mosquitos, filthy (like 2 years of dust) and cobwebs in the corners and over the doors. Termites and little mosquito looking nats came in thru the gaps in the windows. I actually had to go around cleaning them just to feel comfortable (that said; it was well swept and clean in the main areas), tub had about 100 tiny dead nats on it, mildew in every cabinet, dishes needed to be re-washed.
It would have been a good sleep if we weren't for the apprehensions all night about a big spider or other bug invading. Apparently; it was just barking Gekko's doing their job keeping them at bay. It would have been more comforting if not for the 1/2 inch wide gaps along one edge of just about every screen (the termites had eaten the wood).
When the stove shorted, the 220 fuse didn't blow. Wow, my wife was stiring with a metal fork and would have probably been killed if timing were different. The place probably would have burned had we been cooking greasy foods.
This place works for someone willing to suffer a few mosquito bites and walk under the wasps; and just looking to simi-camp for the night.
Mrs. Nakamora REALLY needs to put a little effort into fixing / thoroughly cleaning the place. She's in over her head.
