Better than staying in the City... And actually a lot safer for the kids. Side street it was on was busy but not normal city crazy. Neighbors active but not party animals, made me feel like at home..... Everything within walking distance. Grocery.shops. subway. Zoo. Only 15 min drive to city. I suggest using UBER, made everything more enjoyable. Back yard could have been beautiful but was not maintained. Tall straggly grass, over grown half dead flower beds, and huge hornets nest. And biggest bummer wwasNO HOT TUB! But over all house was nice inside and plenty of room for all 9 of us.
