“We love it here and will keep coming back. Third visit. Sandy is California perfect but he is also very on top of things. Highly recommend.”

“Lovely place! Neat historical building. Beautiful rooftop patio with a unique and large garden! Great location that’s walking distance to so many things; we didn’t need our car once we arrived.”

Fantastic place – truly home away from home. Sandy was an excellent host. You cannot beat the location and the price. Hi-light for me was the cozy, comfy bed with wonderful morning light. The roof top garden was just icing on the cake. I will be staying here again!?
