Like many reviews mentioned here (I actually read through them before booking) and couldn't agree more. The yard definitely is a very different exprience. You feel like you are living in a friend's place.
We stayed at the Penthouse and it was very spacious and comfortable. Since it was toward the end of our trip we were kind of tired, we ended up staying in after an early dinner and it felt totally like home.
The owner's family actually lived in the premise and Alexandra has been so helpful and friendly (also recommended us a wonderful steak restaurant down the street) I would love to go back. (p.s. they will be taking up more floors and expands this summer.
