First, the condo was exactly the way it was described. The owner, Mark, was fantastic! I had no trouble getting in touch with him when I had questions (never any problems to solve) and he was very easy to work with.

Management response:

Thank you for your 5 star review and especially your mention that everything was exactly as described. We look forward to having you back again!
