It was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in a wonderful location. It was on a quiet residential street. And you could get downtown quickly and easily. One of the Riverwalk entrances was steps away from the house. It had everything you could want and more – like many Keurig coffee pods, bottled water, some juices, half and half, granola bars, etc. It was a second floor apartment and it had a wonderful deck for morning coffee and sunset cocktails and dinner! (There was a spiral staircase to get to the apartment but the hosts contacted us about it when we booked. We had no problems with it at all.) Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful !!!” – Janet
