We enjoyed our stay and the apartment was very clean and comfortable. Their are plenty of dishes to cook your own meals and storage containers for leftovers. The neighborhood is very quiet and charming. :-) Just a side note for anyone who may need to know - while it is a single floor apartment, there are stairs leading down to access it. Nothing too steep, but something to consider. :-)
The stay at the Shepherd's was great. We showed up to our basement apartment which was clean and had everything we were hoping (URL HIDDEN) always nice to not have to buy pepper and washing detergent. They were living in the apartment above with their adorable kids and despite that, they somehow did not make much noise. It was a smooth experience and we felt like we had the place to ourselves the whole time. The neighborhood was one of the most nice, calm and affluent I have ever seen.
