Great space - exactly as described! Property manager was really nice and welcoming.
As a family born and raised in Buffalo, but relocated to the South this apartment was exactly what we needed, on our daughter's destination wedding weekend. Well decorated, loads of space, great location in the heart of the Elmwood retail district. Groceries a couple blocks away, multiple restaurants in walking distance.
Anne was a wonderful on-location host, giving us a complete orientation and there when we needed her, and warmly welcoming. Recently updated master bath/shower was resort quality. Would highly recommend for anyone's visit or return to Buffalo.
This was a great location and lovely apartment for for us to stay in. We were six family members all meeting in Buffalo for a memorial service and it was ideal, with spaces to all get together as well as spaces to be apart. I loved that the place is well built enough that sound didn't travel around the apartment. The property manager was very responsive to our needs. Good restaurants are nearby and it was great to walk down Elmwood and have so many interesting places to go. We following the suggested guidance of spacing our showers out and had no problem with running out of hot water. Highly recommended.
This apartment is a real gem. Michael is not on the premises but he has a great manager (anne) who was really attentive and communicative. The apartment was clean, warm and cozy. Internet was great, kitchen was well stocked with dishes and glasses. This apartment is right on the edge of all the fun bars and restaurants on Elmwood and is within walking distance to many of those fun spots. The water pressure was a bit low, we couldn't have both showers running at once but the temp was good. Overall, great place! Would definitely stay again!
We were there for a family Christmas visit and the property manager had placed a small decorated Christmas Tree in the living room and had Christmas candies in bowls on the table. She had provided ground coffee creamer for us to use the first morning since we arrived quite late in the evening.
The property is quite nice and is described accurately.
The neighborhood was good for us because we were near relatives, but it is a city neighborhood so others should expect city noise and traffic.
Our hosts were wonderful! They made us feel welcome and were very helpful in providing tourist info about Buffalo. The penthouse is beautiful and in a great location that is very close to many restaurants, bars, historic areas, and shopping areas. Also, the penthouse is in a very safe location. My partner and I were looking for a quiet place to stay that offered privacy and this rental did just that! Thank you so very much for having us!
The house was in a great location. And it definitely met our needs. The few issues we had were mere coincidence-we had abnormally tall boys in our group who did not fit well in the beds and also hit their heads on the sloping ceiling in the dining room. One of the rooms had a fairly musty smell but couldn't pin point why. Also, pretty sure a small animal had died behind the wall in the bathroom-but the smell did go away on the last day. Those things can't be helped! Also the water pressure was pretty sad. But again, an old house-it's partially to be expected. Beds weren't Particularly comfortable, but the house was clean and served its purpose perfectly!
