Small and cozy, perfect for 2!

  • 4 of 5

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 :)

Perfect place to stay in Salt Lake

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 2 of 5

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.

  • 3 of 5

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.

This is the second time we stayed in David's apartment and it is very comfortable and in a great location. We love it so much we will be staying here again in a few months. David is a pleasure to work with.
