You get what you pay for, I guess. The do an OK manicure/pedicure, though they are inconsistent (some operators are better/worse than others). The interior used to be nice, but the chairs are all held together with duct tape and look dirty now. Worstis the waxing service. I let the waxing lady talk me into having my arms done a few weeks ago, and I came out with multiple bruises (and have not had that happen elsewhere). Cheap, and cheap results.
I took my dogs here b/c of the favorable review that I read on insiderpages. I am glad that I did. The facility is pristine, the staff is friendly and very competent, and the owner is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced trainer. They have an in-house training "boot camp," which we opted to do when our dogs were boarded for 2 weeks over the holidays. It is not cheap, but it was well worth it, and our marginally behaved dogs came home infinitely more obedient. I HATE kennels, but this is a different place altogether.
We were very pleased with the service they offered. They are super careful with your home (they actually do put on booties in the house and use tarps) and did our repair quickly and efficiently. Best of all, though, they actually show up--we were one of the last calls for the day and our designated repair person was running late. When the company called to tell me that, I thought "great, they'll want to reschedule." Nope--they dispatched another repair person who arrived promptly.
I have worked out with Katelyn weekly for 3 years. While I have also tried a number of excellent Pilates instructors, Katelyn is my favorite. She is warm, thoughtful, and professional, and she breaks complicated body moves down in a way that makes them easy to approach. Truly world class.
It's not a pretty store, but Norm's is a surprise. From replacement foam for a dog bed to gorgeous custom patio cushions using the latest outdoor fabric, they do everything foam related, and they do it extremely well. They did a simply gorgeous job on cushions for a patio set--top quality.
Excellent place to take pilates--exceptionally well-trained instructors, pleasant facility, well maintained equipment. They have also opened a studio adjacent that offers group mat pilates and yoga
Excellent pet walkers/sitters. Years of experience, wonderful with pets, reliable, extremely trustworthy. South bay only.
Fantastic rug cleaning; they have done several of our oriental carpets, and they come back perfect and extremely clean. Timely service, reasonable prices.
Fantastic professional organizing services for the home or office. She and her team are efficient and effective, but also very understanding and kindly to clients who are struggling with clutter. Also work with ADD and ADHD.
Dr. Chris Hutson, the vet, is probably the best diagnostician I have ever seen. My dogs have had some very serious problems, and she has been fantastic. Highly recommended.
