why is it wrong to use есть in this sentence? ''у меня есть большая и удобная ванна''

This is correct, just report when you see any imperfection.

yes I report many such imperfections, but I wasn't sure because sometimes you can't use есть in a sentence.

I think it's only when you're talking about parts of the body that everyone (or almost everyone) has - the normal and expected. Obviously, it cannot be assumed that everyone has a large and comfortable bath, so it's OK here. If it's any consolation, I also used есть and got it wrong. Will report it as an error.
