Comfy, Funky, Just Right
Our family of 4 adults stayed here two nights while picking up one sons from college before heading to Bryce/Zion. It was close to the U and downtown but in a nice, quiet area. It had everything we needed and all 4 beds were comfy enough. Thanks for the stay; we’ll be back!
Small and cozy, perfect for 2!
We loved the weekend up here. It was nice and cozy with full furnishings.
The fridge wasn't cleaned out, but nothing in it was spoiled so just taking 1 star off for that.
Otherwise a lovely place :)
It was just we need for our vacation.
The place was perfect for us. We hope to use it again next time we come to Salt Lake. Thanks again for great hospitality.
Perfect place to stay in Salt Lake
Our family of five loved staying in David's basement apartment. Beautifully decorated, well equipped, quiet, and comfortable, this was the perfect place for us while exploring Salt Lake City. Thank you!
Difficult to access.
Perfect location, waking distance to University of Utah. No sidewalk or pavement in front of building or along the side of the house to access rental. Hard to pull luggage on dirt trails. Parking is along a busy street.We never found parking near the residence in the evenings. We came with an 81 year old woman. The rock spiral entry stairs proved difficult to tackle as was the jacuzzi tub with a shower head installed overhead. Rental was spotlessly clean but every time my husband stepped on the rugs that covered the stained cement floors, he would slide across the room. Great beds but very little natural lighting in the entire residence. No thermostat. Room temperature must be determined by upstairs tenets. This vacation rental is perfect for younger tenants but we found it to be too inconvenient for us .
It's got some things going for it.
The only complaint I have is that the front bedroom's bed and the pull-out sofa bed were very uncomfortable. Otherwise it was quiet, fairly clean, well-stocked and centrally located. It is dark because it is in a basement, and really only big enough for two couples since you wouldn't want to use the sofa bed.
Three blocks away is the university and a handful of restaurants. Check out the summer concert series at Red Butte near the University, it is a beautiful outdoor venue. Museums near the university as well.
