Very comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The beds are comfy, everything is neat and clean, with all the amenities of home. Quiet and secure building. Perfect location with restaurants, grocery stores, and anything else you would need within a stone's throw! I would definitely recommend this lovely home to anyone wanting a quiet place to stay while in the South Bay area.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jackie. I feel the same way about it. This is my own primary residence, so it is only available when I am traveling. But that can be several times a year. If you are a 55+, this is the place to stay.

very nice building well located

  • 3 of 5

although the building and apartment are fairly new, the apartment needs maintenance and a good clearout. There is no room for any thing you bring. Cupboards are all full, refrigerator is full with little space to keep any supplies. TV needs to be on some cable or satelitte service. People are very friendly and facilities well maintained.

Owner's Response: Well, considering that it is my primary home and not some typical rental unit, I thought I did a pretty good job of making it ready for temporary (2 week) guests. The apartment is neutrally and comfortably furnished. I left it very clean and fully furnished with everything a guest might need. I left one closet and two cupboards empty for guests' personal belongings and actually invested in a high quality sleeper sofa for the second bedroom specifically for paying guests. All miscellaneous except for my clothing( left in one dresser and one bedside table) was put away in a closet behind a closed door. True, I left a few things in the fridge, such as condiments (not a full fridge) and I did leave a full freezer. I recently quit cable because I hated being on TWC. This is a very nice, modern, relatively high-end secured building with secured parking, in a good location in the South Bay. An unusual find for short-term rental. If you don't want to stay in someone's home, you should choose another listing.
