Overall this was a reasonable apartment to rent. I chose it because it appeared to have parking. However it required on street parking, but fortunately there is a small lane close by where parking was always available.
We found the apartment not particularly we'll appointed regarding minor things that cause annoyance. There was no laundry detergent, almost no dish washing detergent. There was no knife sharp enough to cut raw chicken. The serrated knives provided just could not do the job. These thigs are easily fixed, or are due to oversight of the property, as in a previous tenant had removed the kettle.
However it was well located as we had the use of a car. It is about a 20 minute walk to the JFK subway station which is a regular main line service. There is also a very big shopping mall just off Massachusetts avenue. We did however find it by accident, although its close enough to walk to.
Great apartment and attentive host! Lance took the time to fix our clogged sink and the apartment was fantastic--clean and looked exactly as advertised. Highly recommended!
