About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Hummingbird Cottage is a stylishly furnished modern cabin in a quiet, north side neighborhood. The Hummingbird is a 475 square foot studio apartment with all modern conveniences, including free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and a washer and dryer.

The sleeping area has a pillow top, queen sized bed and a nightstand with drawer and a iPod/iPhone dock clock.

The full-sized kitchen is outfitted with Ikea cabinetry and fully stocked with cooking utensils. It also has a double porcelain sink, microwave, gas stove, fridge, toaster, coffee maker and pantry.

The bathroom features a vintage cast-iron porcelain tub with shower and porcelain sink.

The walk-in closet has a washer and dryer, saving you from trips to the Laundromat.

The living area has a 32' Toshiba flat-screen LCD TV with integrated DVD player. The TV swivels so that it may be viewed from anywhere in the apartment.

The front porch is covered and furnished with a table, chairs and an electric grill.
The gravel driveway/yard is fenced but not fully enclosed. Dogs are welcome with a nonrefundable $50 fee per dog but there is no secure enclosure so they must remain leashed.
