Other things to note
IMPORTANT: The home is the 2nd floor unit in a busy family home with 2 young children 5 and 9 years old. We try our best to create a quiet environment for our guests during late evening and early morning hours but sound carries easily in this nearly 100 year old home. Our kids definitely bustle around first thing in the morning as they head to school, as well as in the late afternoons. Both units (upper and lower) are completely separated and there is a private exterior entry into the 2nd floor apartment.
