We've become regulars at Nena's apartment because, as I've said for all the previous times we've stayed with her, the place is perfect and Nena is just simply a wonderful host.

The casita is cozy and comfortable and clean. Very conveniently located. Nena was a gracious host. Whenever we had questions, she was immediately available to for an answer. We look forward to staying here again.

Nena’s place was great! We made the mistake of arriving at night and not giving Nena enough notice. It was a bit too dark for us to see the walkway and lockbox. We received so many wonderful local recommendations and they were perfect for us. The guesthouse was lovely. Furnished…

Be aware of the “inflexible “ late check in. House is a bit difficult to find after dark.

Response from Nena:
I'm sorry that was inconvenient for you, as I state in the listing, I'm an educator and my full time job teaching students is a priority for me. Since you didn't check in until after 10, I didn't realize it was an issue until this review. I might have accommodated a later checkout if you had asked, but since you didn't, my cleaner was unaware she would be walking in on you and your new bride after check out time. That was a little disturbing for her.
