Quiet, immaculate, well-appointed...and parking, too!

What a pleasure to stay in this beautiful condo! Everything was immaculate when we arrived. The views are spectacular, and the contemporary decor with an Asian flair is the perfect style for the unit: bamboo flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, Japanese prints, wooden furniture accents, cozy fabrics. The instructions for parking and check-in were flawless; the owner even emailed us the day before our trip to alert us to possible road closures due to a filming crew.
The thing we appreciated most was the quiet setting compared with a hotel. No slamming doors, no music from a wedding reception above, no drunken revelers in the hallways on the weekends...all of the stress associated with the uncertainty of other patrons' behavior during a hotel stay evaporated. A close second was the cleanliness. Super job by the housekeeper. We didn't need the washer and dryer, but it was nice to know it was there just in case. The convenience of unlimited, no-extra-charge in-and-out parking made things very easy for us.
Look in the cabinets and closets and you will find everything you need: extra towels, tissues, even birthday candles. A book at the desk has instructions for checkout, Wi-Fi use, suggested nearby restaurants and attractions, etc.
One thing that could be "good news, bad news" for some travelers is the frosted glass pane between the bathroom and bedroom. It's great during the day because it admits light into the bathroom, but at night don't turn on the bathroom light or you might wake up the person in bed! It's not an issue if you don't need the bathroom light during the night--and there are eyeshades in each nighttable to mitigate the problem--but rather something to be aware of. Perhaps a dim nightlight might make this a moot point. Also be careful of the edges of the platform bed, which can be shin-killers if you forget they're there. Once you get used to the platform size it's no problem.
We heartily recommend this property and would stay here again without hesitation. Thank you, Hadley and Dee!
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. They are appreciated. Should you opt to return, the issue with the light from the bathroom flooding into the sleeping area will have been addressed. We are working on getting some kind of protective covering for the "shin-killer" corners on the platform bed. Regrets for that. Dee has been after me for a while to do something there. We've both tagged ourselves on those! Thanks for the critique of these two items, and again for the positive review.
