    We arrived at the property and the neighborhood is sketchy. We did not feel safe and contacted the property manager. We spoke with a rep who said they were obligated to honor the VRBO cancellation policy which does not allow a refund past a certain date. The representative recommended we contact VRBO to discuss options.

    We spoke with a nice VRBO rep, who empathized with our situation. We sent pictures of our street and the building next door with burglar bars on their windows and the construction site across the street. After being placed on hold he had to inform us there was nothing he could do for us.

    The property manager said it was because there were no other reviews that mentioned the word unsafe. This is why I feel compelled to post this review. This place is in an unsafe section of town.

    Since we invested the money for 3 nights we decided to stay with much hesitation. We had rented a car for the weekend, but the parking around the townhome is on a first come first serve basis and we did not feel safe parking our car at night in this neighborhood. To ensure our safety we took taxis at night.

    This neighborhood is in the process of being flipped but it isn’t there yet. Please be advised.

    Note to Property Manager: It was not well supplied with toiletries, washcloths and bath mats. Back door knob is loose and the top floor railing is not secure.

    Note to VRBO: The cancellation policy should be reviewed when occupant does not feel safe.

  • Beautiful townhome in great location!


    Beautifully decorated space! Amenities worked well and everything was very clean. Hosts were also quick to respond to our questions. Parking is first come first serve, but we had an easy time finding free street parking. Excellent location within walking distance to ACME market and great restaurants, like Jane G's Dim Sum. Highly recommend!

  • Awesome Accommodations!


    Couldn't ask for better accommodations near HUP with wonderful property managers willing to work with us during our stay. Easy walk to ACME, Rite Aid Pharmacy and only 15 minute walk to Hospital and University. Highly recommend.

  • Lovely condo


    Lovely, clean bedrooms, bathrooms and furnishings. The outdoor patio was terrific, too. Owners were incredibly responsive to our concerns-- thank you! We planned to cook our dinners in but were surprised to find insufficient table seating to accommodate the 5 of us. Also, other kitchen basics were missing such as dish soap, cutlery, wine glasses, and pots and pans. However, the owners were terrific and brought everything we requested the first evening of our stay, including additional seating. Wish there were recommendations for shopping and dining available to guests.
