Denise is a very welcoming hostess. She always made sure that everything was all right. We enjoyed the apartment, the quietness, the neighborhood. The apartment is just exactly as described. Since we stayed in winter, there was a supply of extra blankets. If we have the opportunity to return to this area again, we would most certainly choose Denise's apartment again.
Denise's apartment was wonderful. Lots of space, cozy, warm and basically just a great location. We were lucky to find such a great spot, close to downtown and at a more than reasonable rate. Denise also provided us with some muffins, towels and there was tons of left over soaps and creams to use if need be. My boyfriend and I drove down from Toronto to see some good ol fashioned American football - the Browns played the Colts. The apartment was about a 10$ cab from FirstEnergy Stadium and about a 15min walk too some delicious spots on West 25th. It was probably about a half hour walk or 10min drive to downtown Euclid area (House of Blues etc). I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Cleveland looking for a unique experience, outside of a conventional boring hotel. Thanks again Denise!
It would be hard to surpass the comfort and convenience Denise has offered. A great place to stay n the city!
Awesome stay... Search no further! Denise was fantastic to deal with. Apt was very spacious, well furnished and spotless. Kitchen well stocked for cooking. She also left us breakfast goodies. Of course you can't really leave food for the next guest but all of the condiments and spices are there. It really was a wonderful and homey feeling. It feels good to share in that sort of way. Pics of living room must be older, there's more than showed. We were visiting for a week, rented a car and were a short 15 mins from everything. Public transit is close by and seemed to run often but we wanted more freedom. As mentioned by other visitors the shower can be tricky it's a shower hose, bathing loses a half star, a tad awkward. Since it is an older home the bathroom ceiling is attic style (slants) but the tub is big and doable. Denise gave us her driveway and there was always parking out front. Overall it was a terrific stay, we felt like we were at home every single day. coming and going at our own pace. It was so convenient, I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Morning coffee in the upstairs sitting room was lovely. Darling little park right across the street. You won't be sorry, I assure you.
Overall, great time! I was here for business, so not much site seeing or exploring was done. The apartment was clean and fully furnished. The kitchen also came stocked with some food as well (compliments of the host). Very at home feeling which was great. Also close to major expressways (I90, I71 ect) which was good for me. I would highly recommend this location to anyone!
We will be back! The experience we had in Cleveland and at Denise's charming and comfortable home was well beyond what we were hoping for. People in Cleveland are so warm and friendly—and proud of their town. Denise communicated with us before we knew we had a question, left us refreshments and bagels for breakfast, and was pleasant and conversational without being intrusive. The apartment was a shrine to Cleveland—posters and memorabilia introduced us to its history and attractions; there was even a Cleveland map pillow. Denise had left us maps, books, and recommendations for what we could do in Cleveland, so we read up, rested, and then headed out to explore. We were visiting Cleveland for the first time, and our evenings were spent at a rock show, so our comings and goings were unpredictable and often late—we were respectful and kept late-night noise to a minimum, and never heard a complaint. The park across the street offered peaceful evening strolls and the exquisite squeal of children playing soccer on Saturday morning. I discovered one of my favorite books among Denise's guest collection, "The Elegance of the Hedgehog," and read it late into the night, while soaking in the clawfoot bathtub, and over morning coffee. The wifi worked fine, if a tad slow, so I was able to keep it touch with work and friends. While the kitchen was well stocked for cooking our own meals, we were here partly for the food. From our home base, we could walk to a huge selection of restaurants, attractions, and hangouts. We tried La Petit Triangle (beautiful croissants), The Black Pig (fabulous cocktails, unpretentious), Bar Cento (perfect late-night pizza), Market Garden Brewery (excellent home brew and charcuterie), West Side Market (browse, graze, and stock up for foodie friends back home), and Nano Brew (good beer, sliders, and giant Jenga). Driving around or using public transportation was easy. We explored the mind-bending architecture of Frank Gehry at Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management. We saw the Indians win a double-header. We made it less than halfway through the breathtaking—and free—collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art. We drove through the Cultural Gardens along Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. We went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to hear X talk about the early LA days and banged our heads for 3 nights at the Music Box Supper Club, where X was playing. We popped into Harbor Inn, Cleveland's oldest bar (1895) for cheap pours. We found treasures in vinyl shops and vintage stores—at Elegancia, we received a Welcome to Cleveland gift of the jacket we were about to purchase. We made the kitsch trip to "The Christmas Story" house. And we ate more: While Bonbon was a very close second for best breakfast with its perfectly scrambled eggs and homemade English muffin, Lucky's won hands down—and it was here that I finally found the perfect coffee and a piece of pie. Go to Cleveland. Stay with Denise. Cleveland...
Host made us feel very very welcome. the neighborhood was great. There were great restaurants very close. I highly recommend this AB&B.
I have been teaching 6th grade reading at Metro Catholic School for many years. I enjoy movies, reading, swimming, porch sitting, my flower garden, and meeting new people.
Since I enjoy dining out I can offer you several great restaurants, pubs, and ice cream shops in the neighborhood.
I am quiet, easy going, friendly, and try to be aware of the amount of my presence guests want!
