John, our host is very accommodating, hospitable and knowledgeable about the city so do ask him questions. We found this spot after much searching over Airbnb.com. Also, some details on the setup- this is a multi-level town home built back in my the 1800s, and renovated quite well. Also, it may always be nearly filled to capacity due to its...

Stayed here for two nights in the family room, two adults and two children. While the place is not super-perfect, it was so well-equipped with superb quality bedding and lots and lots of thick fluffy towels (even face-cloths). There were high quality biscuits and a bottle of water too. The breakfast was really good quality, and there was hot chocolate...
