There are just no words to describe how wonderful this apartment is. There are 3 things that make the Palm House exceptional : #1 it is spacious, light and airy, yet warm and cozy, bright, beautifully decorated, superbly appointed with an ultra-modern kitchen/appliances, ultra-comfortable huge bed with superior linens in a huge bedroom with closets, hangers, and drawers galore, and a bathroom with every feature you could possibly need. #2 The Palm House is in a neighborhood that is gorgeous, safe, loaded with good-to-exceptional restaurants, and borders on a beautiful park. You will find yourself taking as many pictures of your neighborhood buildings as you do of the tourist sites. And you will feel smug, proud, and relieved to return to your home every day after seeing all there is to see (including neighborhoods you could have mistakenly stayed in). #3 Hal (I saved the best for last). The attention, care, detail, and effort he gives to ensure everything is perfect and that your stay is THE BEST you will ever have anywhere, is just shocking to be honest. He doesn't just tell you how the appliances work and hand you the keys, he starts by welcoming you with food and drink so that you don't have to run to a grocer, he gives you an orientation walk to familiarize you with ALL means, points, and routes of nearby transportation and orientation to the apartment so that you'll never get lost after post-dinner strolls and a few glasses of wine, he checks with you as often as you like and assists with any sights you want to see, tickets you might need printed, restaurant recommendations, tipping and reservations .. honestly, the list is endless. He is a Godsend. This apartment is a no-brainer, far superior to ANY other you might consider.
