Adorable and Pristine

  • 5 of 5

Such a sweet house in a lovely neighborhood. Robert was very kind and accommodating. The house itself was spotless, the beds were very comfortable, the linens were quality and the kitchen was well appointed. The house was perfect for my husband, twin 3 year old boys and I.

The house is within walking distance of a Safeway or smaller neighborhood markets as well as a Starbucks and other restaurants. As we stayed here the week prior to Christmas, my family and I would walk around the neighborhood at night and look at Christmas lights or walk to the market in the morning. A very family friendly neighborhood.

We would definitely recommend staying here and hope do to it again soon.

Very comfortable home and extremely convenient

  • 5 of 5

Robert's home fit our needs perfectly. We took public transit to and from the home on multiple occasions with only a short 1 to 2 block walk each time. The home is warm and comfortable and neighborhood is quaint and quiet.

Pretty house in pretty and convenient neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay is this lovely house, it is really cute and the neighbourhood is a pleasure to walk around. Safeway and 7-eleven are a very short walk as are many restaurants and shops.

The kitchen is stocked well above average with every cooking utensil you will need. Bonus points as the knives are actually sharp!

Beds very comfortable. Overall I felt very at home and very relaxed and would definitely stay here again..
