Especially the outdoor space-it is perfect. I am definitely coming back when the weather is better to see how cute it is with flowering plants. The Grey Dog is 2 doors down and is open from morning to late night with great food and drink with a vegetarian flare. Taxi cabs easily available by walking out the door. Only complaint was no microwave. I would definitely recommend the owner put a small microwave in 2nd kitchen on mini-fridge. It was great to have 2 bathrooms. I would also change the instructions for the lockbox. The whole box pulls down when you press down. We struggled with those directions thinking the key would pop out, It needs a little TLC but was super clean and comfortable, The neighborhood is awesome with a really great market/grocery store on the corner. I will be back!!!Thank you Maggie for checking in on us when we struggled with the key!
