5/5 Excellent

We really enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable. Its an older building but updated, so it was very charming. The host was very nice and he helped immediately with a door lock issue. The area was very nice. WE would definitely stay here again if we get the chance

5/5 Excellent

Delightful apartment in lovely neighborhood
Very comfortable apartment in a lovely neighborhood of older homes. Perfect location: a quiet residential street with access to miles of parks just down the way, a local coffee shop is a couple of blocks over, with easy on/off I-95 to discover the area. Inside space is limited so the furniture is minimal but quite comfortable. The kitchen is also small and without many amenities but completely functional, with a full-size refrigerator. Nice windows with lovely views through the trees and great a/c in the living and bedrooms, which I really appreciated on a couple of hot, steamy days. The owner took great pains to make sure I was comfortable, and I highly recommend both him and the apartment.
