Host, apartment, location--loved everything about this experience.
Check-in says 3 PM, but Larry was flexible about our arrival time. He met us at the building, carried my overstuffed bag up the four flights of stairs and personally showed us around the apartment and gave us tips about the neighborhood.
Larry seemed extremely laid back...chill. And that vibe carried through. The apartment was chill, the neighborhood was chill, what we experienced of the city was chill...even the weather. I mean all of this in the best way.
Larry was responsive to even silly questions (like, "what was the name of that pizza place again?) but also let us be once we got situated. I imagine he'd be as accessible as you needed him to be, but not intrusive.
We loved the neighborhood. We were quick to feel at home, catching ourselves saying "our neighborhood" after only a day. It was close to so much that we were interested in--and when we wanted to really stretch out, it was close to scooter rental and car rental places.
We could see mountains in the distance every day--made for a pretty skyline. You get a decent sunset view from the apartment, too.
It's an old building, which we really loved . As such, just note that there isn't an elevator and this apartment is on the third (or fourth, depending on how you come in) floor. This was no big deal for us, but it would be if stairs were an issue for a renter. Despite it being an old building, there was instant hot water for the shower. Also, maybe because it's a top-floor corner unit, we never heard even the slightest noise from any neighbors.
The apartment is better in person than it photographs.
We didn't intend to do any cooking, but the kitchen has the basic equipment if you were so inclined.
Other reviews mentioned feeling warm/hot in the apartment. We visited in mid-July and that just wasn't our experience. The breeze coming through the windows made for rather perfect temps.
At the end of the trip, Larry was once again very flexible and easy to deal with.
