“Location A++. Mini-Apartment: weird”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

First, this was billed as a one-bedroom apartment. It had a murphy bed that was exposed to the kitchen/dining area, and when unfolded, there was a space about 4 inches to pass between the wall and the mattress: to get to the bathroom. I had it in my mind that there would be a door. That's what it means to be a 1-bedroom.

Second, one key reason we picked this place was because of the washer and dryer. We were staying here for 2 nights after a cruise, and the ability to do laundry was critical for us. I was expecting a low-end stackable unit, but instead got an Asko all-in-one washer/dryer. They just don't work very well -- 200 minutes to dry a half-size load. Plus, the temperature is so hot, i had a pair of gym shorts in there, and they were partially melted and my other clothes smelled burnt. I realize this is operator error, but it's just an odd system. Knowing what these units cost, they could have installed a stackable type unit for much less money.

Now, the place was cute, and the location can't be beat. Half a block from Lincoln Road, walkable to the beach, restaurants galore, awesome spots to shop in - especially for books - the Assouline shop within a shop is a must-see, as is the Taschen shop are all positives. It was also great being able to pick up some fruit and things to much on, and have a fridge to keep them in.

Most of the other guests were Europeans, for whom renting an apartment is a more common mode of travel. There was some noise travel from apartment to apartment. The bed was uncomfortable. Probably wouldn't stay there again.

From initial impression to final departure the accommodation ticked all the boxes. The apartments (we had two) were amply sized, contained all the utensils and facilities required, had good mattresses on the beds and GREAT showers. The WiFi was excellent and free as was the parking - an absolute necessity. Huge fridge freezers with ice and water were great and the tvs and ipod docks really made chillin' at the end of a busy day fun. The local restaurant across the road was excellent for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks also!

Room Tip: We stayed in the two upper rooms nearest the road. The flats were light and airy. However they were...

I travel quite often for work, at least 1-2 times per month. This place by far exceeded my expectations. The Manager/Owner went above and beyond to accommodate us. The location is excellent. It is like staying at a friends house with space to sit out and enjoy the sun. I would definitely stay here again and again.
