This was a lovely apartment very near the many shops and restaurants of JP. Phyllis was a great host. She made sure I had everything I needed, and the complementary coffee was very welcome. I also enjoyed chatting with her a little. I'd certainly stay there again. Thank you.

My partner and I had a great stay at Phyllis's apartment. We actually had the entire place to ourselves because Phyllis was out of town, but she was very responsive to messages and we had everything we needed. Check-in was simple. We looked after her two cats while we were there,…
