Great location to Shand's Hospital

"The condo was plenty big for 2 people. The overall condo needs some TLC. Bathroom vanity top cracked, the furniture has stains. You can hear noise from neighbors. The owner answered or got right back to me. I would probably stay there again because it was so close to where I had to be."…"
