Beautifully appointed 1 bedroom, 1 bath, vacation rental upper; more a duplex than apartment, more the feel of a boutique hotel than just a rental. At the back of what many describe as a Secret Garden is this lovely upper unit. With Venetian plaster walls, hard wood floors, travertine in kitchen and bath, crown molding, recessed lighting, fresh, new linens, queen bed in bedroom, feather pillowed sofa for sleeping for one in living room (if necessary-not a pull-out) it's a hidden jewel. A perfect blend of yin and yang, masculine and feminine; a sunny, simple, sweet, uncluttered and quiet unit. Empty closets and chests for short term storage and full bath with tub. Two sided desk, WIFI, Apple TV, & Hulu Plus, garden views, super clean, plenty of charm all around!
But the masterpiece is the Tuscan inspired garden with over 500 flower blooming plants ranging from bougainvillea to sage, lavender, hydrangea and roses. Perfect for having garden company with local friends or family and then to retire to your own unit. Close enough to downtown to make it easy to walk, far enough away to give a sense of peace.
The garden is yours to explore and enjoy, athough the large table is wonderful, a smaller table is around the corner on a path to the left. Pick some thyme or rosemary for cooking!

Close to everything but quietOur stay there was perfect! It was recommended through mutual friends and we were so happy that we found it. It is perfectly close to everything without being on a main street or being directly downtown. Very quiet considering it is just 5 to 9 bl... ...read more
