All of us who live or rent in this building are asked to be respectful of our neighbors. Excessive noise in the public areas ( porches or hallways ) after 10.00pm is not respectful.
Paula was an excellent host! Although we did not have the chance to meet in person, she was very thorough with instruction and made the check-in process easy and effortless. The space was immaculate and in a perfect location! I had an amazing time and I would definitely choose to rent with Paula again. Thanks Paula!
Though we didn't wind up meeting in person Paula was nonetheless a great host and provided very clear and easy arrangements for us to get into the space; she was also very good about prompt communication.
The apartment is very nice, comfortable and in a great location. Particularly handy being 'upstairs' from some great dining options and one of TC's better coffee shops.
Our stay was really a wonderful experience. The condo is light, bright, and airy but cozy at the same time. Very comfortable furnishings and a great kitchen. The view from the windows is nice and the whole place has a nice feel. It doesn't hurt that there are great restaurants right downstairs. We also loved Spanglish and the bakery across the street.
This place was wonderful. The location is great. My husband and I needed a mini vacation and that is just what we received. Paula was very kind and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Commons. Since it was winter, we took the opportunity to go to a few restaurants in the complex so we did not need to go out in the cold every evening. There were other events happening onsite and we visited all the shops too. Paula was an excellent host with prompt communication and her place is set up well for guests. Great value for the location and ability to have some space while visiting TC.
Overall, the stay was great! The building was very quiet and peaceful even with the busy shops below. This was truly a unique experience with the location. The place was clean and the price was great. The owner was great with getting back to me and provided me all the information needed to make our stay great. It truly was a great experience and I hope to stay no where else in the future.
I'm an Artistic "Foodie". I split my time between my studio, part time work at one of the local winerys, making and eating really good food and a variety of outdoor acivities. Traverse City is an ideal place for all of these interests.
