Great little property, wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my short stay here. Ashley was very good at communicating with me. I came in very late the first night and got in easily using the key lock box. She had a box of cookies and cold water waiting for me, which was much needed and appreciated. I loved being so close to many restaurants and shops. There is a small parking lot right in front of the house, so that was easy.

The big shower was a nice bonus. My $300 security deposit was promptly refunded after my stay, that was my only concern.

The loft is comfortable and well equipped. Nicely remodeled. It’s in a residential area with some well maintained homes and others that are neglected

Spacious, clean, everything we needed, convenient, friendly neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is on the 2nd fl and has four large rooms plus a laundry/utility room, a hallway with a desk for papers & electronics, and a back screened in deck that also has stairs to the private backyard. The main entry is in the front of the house. The living room has windows on 3 sides making it nice and bright, and the furniture is quite comfortable. The kitchen has plenty of cookware, a nice stove & frig, double sink, & a great round table with 4 high top chairs. The bedroom has tons of storage, closet space, and a comfortable queen bed. The shower is huge and the whole bathroom is very nice. During our stay, the 2 first floor apartments were occupied by really nice folks that we did many things with during the month. It was our first VRBO, and we're sold on it!
