We stayed in this apartment for 2 days. It was very nice and centrally located. It had plenty of on street parking and was in very clean condition. The fridge was stocked even though we didn't use it. We were very happy and would stay again if in the area.
The listing is accurate and we enjoyed our stay at Nulu Pearl. It's in a great neighborhood and close to lots of places. We parked right in front. The Nulu Pearl is spacious and clean and we enjoyed this beautiful old brick building and its wonderful furnishings.
Rik met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the (website hidden) was even more beautiful than the photos! The neighbor hood could not have been more perfect. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to do!
Rik was very accessible throughout our stay and the apartment had everything we needed, and more. GREATlocstion as NuLu has many excellent restaurants and bars, and downtown is a walk or free bus ride away. Highly recommended!!
We absolutely loved the NuLu Pearl. What a beautiful building in a great neighborhood. The pre-arrival communication was perfect and they were there to meet us as we arrived.
The free bus to downtown is right across the street and you are literally one block off one of the most fun neighborhoods in town. The apartment itself is spacious and cool and wonderful. We would 100% stay there again.
We really enjoyed staying at the Pearl. It was conveniently located and a really gorgeous space. I would recommend it to anyone!
