Perfect home away from home in amazing neighborhood!

My husband and I stayed in this cottage for a week with our three year old son and we couldn't have been happier. Feels like you are living in the lovely Elmwood neighborhood with coffee shops, restaurants, the university, and more within walking distance. House was super clean and modern with all the amenities you could need-wireless internet, tv, washer/dryer, coffee pot, dishes, blackout shades in the bedroom, etc. Reserving and getting in went super smooth. There is a lovely front deck and a back patio with a barbecue as well. We couldn't have asked for more!
I just want to point to a few things you should be aware of:
1. The bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs so it was a bit of a challenge with a kid or if you have to pee in the middle of the night like I do:)
2. The heater is downstairs and it can get quite cold upstairs in the bedroom so we bought our own space heater for the bedroom.
3. There are no blinds on the front windows so if you plan on sleeping on the foldout couch you might feel a little exposed (though there is a big shady tree that does provide some cover).
Other than those things, this place was perfect for us and we can't wait to go back. The owner was also very helpful and responsive if we had questions!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the feedback on the heating. The gas fireplace downstairs is powerful and if set at 74 can comfortably warm the upstairs before going to sleep. We also have a fluffy down comforter as well as a down blanket to keep the European Sleep Works bed warm and toasty. I'm from Hawaii and I too love a warm bed! Also there is a privacy blind on the larger center window in the living room. We will consider adding more. Thanks again and hope to have you back soon!
