This apartment is in a new building and cleanly presented. Cross ventilation cooled the apartment in minutes, making air conditioning unnecessary, even on hot midsummer afternoons. Morning coffee and sunset views from the balcony were romantic and memorable. I consider this place a value rental for the price.
Catching Buses up and down the hill is easy and fun. They deliver you to a huge grocery/department store (Jumbo), fresh seafood and produce market, and very close to a Metro station. There are several small corner stores 1/2 block from the apartment that sell produce, bottle drinks and water. The host was attentive, likable and fast to reply to our questions.
