The apartment looks just as it does in the pictures, the cutest and most comfortable stay we could hope for. It is smack dab in the heart of things, so you can go to the bar literally downstairs and walk home, as well as walk to the farmers market every morning and a pleathora of restaurants! They were very thorough with the details and check in process and were so accommodating! I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Lovely and clean and well maintained. Couldn't ask for a better location and brilliant customer service from the owners. Would definitely recommend and cant wait to come back.
