About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3 max)

Quiet Garden Apartment one block from public transportation and walking distance to many restaurants, groceries, general shopping, and sights.

Relax in the comfort of a cozy, comfy apartment with wireless and cable or sit outside and enjoy the sun and garden while being five (ok, fifteen) minutes from some of the best dining in the world

Small bedroom with a standard double bed and connecting full bath. Bedroom contains a closet with sliding glass doors and storage chest. In the separate living area: writing desk, single/twin bed, comfortable couch and club chair. Flat screen TV and new eat-in kitchen.

We're extremely close to public transportation (99 on transportation score and 98 on walking score), but sadly, street parking is tedious. Numerous parking restrictions are enforced on a weekday basis in the neighborhood. I advise you to leave the car at home or use the city muni, or any of the convenient car services; FlyWheel, City Share, Zip Car, UBER or Lyft.

Keywords: Sweet and sophisticated garden apartment, close to public transportation, shopping and great dining options
