Beyond the brick patio there are a couple of lounge chairs behind a privacy screen of bamboo and a gas bbq. To the right of this area is the front door of the apartment.
This is an old charming home built in the 1940's. Everything is a bit out of square with lots of little steps up and down and posts and beams all around. The entire apartment was recently remodeled, with new flooring, new paint, a new kitchen and a new bathroom.
There is 1 private bedroom with a queen size bed and a semi private sleeping alcove with a full size bed. The bed is cozy for 2 adults, however the alcove does not have a door and it is 3 steps up with a low ceiling of 6 feet.
The galley style kitchen has been completely remodeled with built in microwave, dishwasher, and granite counter tops. Fully stocked with dishes and cookware for inside and out.
The living room has plenty of comfortable seating, a tv with cable, free wifi, dining table with 4 chairs, original art on the walls, and lots of sunshine.
The bedroom is accessed from the living room. There is an armoire with extra blankets and towels, wicker furniture and a small closet.
The newly remodeled bathroom is accessed from the bedroom, with a tiled shower, slate floors and lots of plush towels.
Also from the bedroom there are french doors leading to a private outdoor deck. This is the perfect place for morning coffee. From the private deck, stairs lead down back to the entry deck with the outdoor table.
There are 2 spots from this apartment that there is a smidgen of an ocean view, seen between the neighbor's roof, otherwise the charm of this house is all the wonderful sunny outdoor areas among the oak trees and the clean and cozy indoor areas.
