Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. Walking distance to anything you wanted to do in the entire city. Very easy to work with the owners as well. Very happy with our experience.

Our stay

  • 2 of 5

Carpet in bedroom appeared not to have been vacuumed before our stay as it was dirty; not a stich of food in kitchen (e.g. salt and pepper, sugar, nothing); no knife in the kitchen to cut anything; soap dispenser in bathroom didn't work, used a bar; the apartment was very cold when we arrived at 4:30 pm and after some head scratching and my first call to Fallon, I determined thermostat wasn't working because it needed a new battery (at closer look the screen was flashing "Low Batt"). I phoned Fallon and she asked me to figure out what size battery it needed. I couldn't readily see where the battery was, so she asked me to take a photo of the actual thermostat and send to her. You'd have thought someone would have done a walk-through before our arrival to check on it's status, or at least I'd assume that. At this point, we left and went to my daughter's apartment... because at least it had heat.

Owner's Response: Hi Muriel, Thank you for your feedback. We did replace the thermostat during your stay and the heat then was working in normal condition. The downstairs can be a bit drafty which is why we provide a space heater for the downstairs. Some guests use it; some do not, it really just depends on the guests preference. The reason we asked for a picture was because neither of the property managers were downtown at that time and one of us was able to come back after hours and replace the battery. I do apologize that this put a damper on your experience. Again, thank you for your feedback.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I loved this property. It is an excellent location. The condo is spacious enough and very clean. The parking was a little tight for a minivan but I made it work. If you plan on cooking in the kitchen you will need to grab cooking oil, salt, and pepper, but that would be the only negative I can think of. We definitely plan to stay there again

Great location, nice place

  • 4 of 5

This rental is not perfect, but the excellent location, parking space, comfortable bed, and responsive property manager all make it worth the price and stay. It is much better suited for 2 people, given that the pull out couch is not comfortable and the couch itself is not the cleanest. Overall cleanliness was pretty good, but a tad dirty in places. The kitchen is stocked just enough, and really for 2 people, not 4. Was missing a few things, like sponges to wash dishes by hand, but overall was stocked well enough. The place has nice character, especially the high ceilings, nice hardwood floors and wooden beam ceilings, but the living room ceiling has a bit of water damage. Overall would definitely stay here again, but hopefully they invest in a new couch soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Jonathan, thank you for your review. We typically do not keep sponges in our rentals since they don't seem to stay very clean and need replaced frequently. We will take this into consideration. We do provide paper towels and dishcloths. Thank you for your feedback on the sofa. This is the first complaint we have received and will definitely start looking for a replacement sofa. The water mark on the ceiling appeared recently after Hurricane Matthew. Luckily, it is not an active leak. Our maintenance man will be repairing that small area of the ceiling. Again, thank you for your review. We hope to have you back in the future!
