Thank you for your feedback. A stove/cooktop is not advertised on the listing, therefore the listing is accurately described in the listing. By the way, as you could see the unit is under going some remodeling to provide for laundry facilities and a stove top, which will be available in the near future. Please keep in mind, my guest host his not a hotel and is not yet set up for long term stays. Salt and pepper, sharp knives, scissors, salad tongs, and dish soap is not a requirement but an extra accommodation. I believe the accommodations at your disposal (guest suite, pool, jacuzzi, deck area, umbrellas, etc.) far exceed the price you paid for the accommodations. I also provided complimentary coffee, fruits, and snack, which I feel to over an beyond, but I provide to enhance my guest's stay and hospitality. In fact, I provided you with unflavored coffee that was more you your liking. I apology for any disappoint you may have had regarding your accommodations or your stay. Maybe you should try an area hotel during your next trip to LA. You may pay little more and but it may meet your standards.
