There were no unpleasant surprises when we rented this apartment. The listing and photos were accurate, as were the correspondence with the owner. The pleasant surprise was how accomodating and hospitible the owner was. Before we arrived, he answered all our questions in a very timely manner. The apartment was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The back deck was an extra nice feature. It let in a lot of natural light as well as being a little private patio that we were able to enjoy.It suited us very well because of its location. The bed was very comfortable. The restaurants and stores are all within walking distance. The neighbourhood is exquisite. We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend this apartment to any of our friends.
