The apartment was darling! It was clean and well-decorated. We loved sitting on the front porch and enjoying the neighborhood. We were able to walk downtown to the 16th street mall and enjoyed breakfast nearby at Jelly.
A couple of things to consider before staying here:
This is a very old building which adds to the charm of the experience however, keep in mind that it isn't well insulated meaning, you can hear everything above and outside. This made it difficult to sleep. I wouldn't recommend it for families with small children or those who are light sleepers.
The air conditioning units were still installed in the windows. This not only made the room very cold due to the vent outdoors, it also added to the noise factor from people walking by. I would suggest removing it before the fall as it's not necessary to cool the room.
Another thing we found somewhat strange was the opened food in the refrigerator. There was an almost-empty milk container, opened hummus dip and other half-eaten items that ended up being thrown away. It didn't feel appetizing or sanitary. My suggestion to the owner would be to clean out the fridge prior to guests arrival. There are plenty of homeless people who would probably not turn it away.
Overall, our stay was wonderful. We were willing to forgo a couple of nights sleep for a charming place to stay in an excellent location. We would certainly stay here again.
