Place was great! Well kept and furnished, clean, and close to downtown. And, most importantly, the air conditioner kept the place nice and cold. The lady downstairs was very helpful and gave us some good tips on the city. Would definitely stay there again.
jeff was really nice ..and more than willing to inform us of local goings on.
the space was great. we loved it..
the surfaces were not clean though when we got there but it only took me a few minutes to remedy that ..
and we had difficulty with the fact of no internet.
Jeff was great. Very friendly, communication was excellent (mine is not). We were road tripping so I wasn’t exactly sure when we would arrive or leave. Jeff took everything is stride, he ended up staying late (which I hadn’t realized would happen if we arrived late) at his business which is attached to the airbnb we were staying at. The home is very nice, a lot of space with everything you’ll need. Small kitchen is you want to cook, coffee pot, he even ground some coffee for us from him café so we’d have some in the morning. He gave us a great recommendation of a local hangout where you can get beer and foot and then sit in the courtyard and listen to local artist play free music. The next morning we got up and were able to grab breakfast at his café which was excellent and oh so convenient.
Absolutely loved the place! The pictures do not do it justice. My boyfriend and I unfortunately only had one night to stay and we both very much agree this will be the place we stay next time we're in town. The room has a vintage minimalist and very homey feel with the awesome high ceiling. The place was very clean and Jeff even brought us some fresh ground coffee! He was very welcoming and kind. The downstairs cafe/gallery, we only had an hour before we left to glance :( , but very cute, interesting, and downright fun. We were able to grab some very tasty drinks, lunch, and treats and I mean tasty. Absolutely loved the experience there and would recommend!
