Stepping into the comfort of this peaceful, cozy haven, you cannot believe that you are still in one of the most energetic cities in this world. When you land here, you will not feel like someone lost in a crowd but rather a person visiting family. This temporary home is not only pleasingly decorated but also completely equipped for easy living. Having a complete kitchen and dining area allowed us to prepare meals or pick up a take-out meal from one of the many eateries on Smith Street. This area has quickly become one of my favorites--excellent restaurants in all price ranges and culinary categories, unique retail stores, and safe family neighborhood. The owners have provided everything a traveler may need for a stay in the apartment and excellent information for activities, transportation, and eating outside of their wonderful cocoon. I have enthusiastically recommended this apartment to several people. I must admit, I am worried it will become so popular that I will not be able to stay there on my next visit! One month after this visit, we were back in town and had reserved a hotel close to our daughter's apartment for convenience. After a sleepless night in my expensive hotel room, I contacted Lee and begged to stay in her apartment. Although this particular one was not available, she was able to accommodate me in another. The location actually was very convenient because of the transportation options. Needless to say, I will not repeat the mistake!
