Pauline was not available at the time but her sister and mom were very accommodating. They do speak some English. Everything I might have forgotten was available...the simple things like soap, q-tips, and even a beverage in the fridge to start the evening. The kitchen had the basic necessities like olive oil, salt, basaltic vinegar, sugar, silverware, dishes, pans and pot. Bare perfect basics. They left paper towels and a kitchen towel, and sponges and even cleaning supplies!
The best things about the place are that public transportation is very close, the local market is literally right outside the doors, grocery stores are about 2 blocks away, laundry room is just downstairs and places to eat are only a couple locks away. PLUS, it was very quiet most nights and the maintenance guy is very nice and keeps the place it tip top shape! All is as advertised and more!!!
