Other Things to Note
* PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: *
• It has sloped ceilings that are pretty low in the bathroom, so you may not be able to use the bathroom and shower comfortably if you're tall (taller than about 6' or so).
• The short set of stairs going up to it are *very* steep. It's only 7 steps, but they're very steep, so it's not recommended if you may have any difficulty with that. (The depth of each stair tread is about 6", with a rise of about 9" for each step.)
• It's very comfortable but it's a *small* space ("cozy" as realtors say). The photos should give you an accurate idea of the size of it.
• No pets, no smoking (of any kind).
• Please keep the door locked (for security).
• The apartment is above a house that is shared with other people, so guests can't be loud, especially at night.
• No more than 4 people may be in the apartment at a time (it's small, and noise can be an issue if there are too many visitors).
• Please turn off the A/C when you leave the apartment. It cools down / warms up quickly, so there's no need to leave it running while you're out.
