Beautiful apartment, great location
Review Submitted: 03 May 2013
Date of Stay: April 2013
My husband and I stayed here for a month, with our two grown children joining us for part of the stay. We couldn't have been happier with the facilities, the location, or the hosts. The apartment is charming, clean and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen, reliable internet service, and all the amenities you'll need. The location can't be beat. There is frequent, direct bus service to the tourist areas very close to the apartment. (Before arriving, this was one of my concerns, since you can't always gauge distances or ease of travel from a map.) And right in the neighborhood itself there are cafes, restaurants, green grocers, butchers, etc. A convenience store is literally right across the street. The neighborhood has great character. It's a mix of rehab'ed buildings, such as this apartment, more lived-in buildings, and some that are uninhabitable. But it feels perfectly safe; the kids play in the streets, folks sit out on their stoops in the afternoons and evenings; it's always lively and friendly. Finally, the owner is a delightful person, so easy to work with, and always available for suggestions, advice, etc. We couldn't have been happier with our stay here and would not hesitate to return or to recommend the property to our friends and family.
