The apartment is great and as pictured. We enjoyed the record collection quite a bit. Lots of great food options within an easy walk. Off street parking was definitely a plus!

Perfect for our group of 4. Walking distance to bars and restaurants, long-ish walk or short cab to downtown. Beautiful home and very clean. All the amenities we needed and John was easy to communicate with and very helpful.

Perfect spot to have a quiet area to return home too, but very short walk/drive to Old Port. The pictures of this place represent it perfectly. Very spacious and comfortable. Highly reccomend.

We had a wonderful stay at John's place! Everything was better than advertised. The apartment is lovely with a fantastic kitchen and lots of space. The bed was super comfy. The bathroom was stocked and very chic with a shower and a cast iron tub. The location was perfect, and John's recommendations were spot on!
