Near - as in one block away from El Paseo for great dining and shopping options. We loved our stay in Julie’s wonderfully updated unit. Awesome kitchen stocked with all the necessary cooking and eating utensils. Cozy back yard space..spent many mornings on the patio watching the sunrise with my coffee! The neighbors were one of the best amenities - friendly, nice, yet respectful of our privacy. We would definitely stay again. Julie was always accessible.!
