Despite the place being in the middle of renovations, which I was okay with, I have never before felt so welcomed and at home. I had a blast talking to the owner who is a very cultured and interesting individual. Also, his genuine interest in my comfort was immensely appreciated and so refreshing!
A little about the home: The memory foam bed was perfect for me but it might be a little firm for others. There also wasn't a couch but I knew this in advance and he told me one was on the way. There's a keyboard in the bedroom, which I personally loved since I play the piano, and a really good speaker system downstairs. Overall, I had a lovely experience and greatly enjoyed everything the place had to offer.
I will definitely be contacting Alek the next time I'm in town and I look forward to seeing the place complete.
