This listing is a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom apartment on the 3rd floor. The apartment is drenched in sunlight, quiet, large (1,640 square feet, about 160 square meters) and includes two “suites” – each with a queen bed and its own private bathroom, perfect for families or two couples. You can also rent just one of the two suites (for half the price of the full apartment). Outside of the two suites is a large living room, a large eat-in-kitchen, a small office, and a pantry. We live downstairs with two kids and are always around if you need anything. We can lend your kids our toys, books, etc. We provide hotel quality amenities: towels, shampoo and conditioner, soap, hair dryer, umbrellas, guide books, maps, etc. Weekly professional cleaning service is provided at no charge.
