GREAT apartment

  • 4 of 5

A very well equipped apartment, nicely decorated and well situated. Was not HAPPY that I had a service dog, and was required to pay an extra cleaning fee after arrival. Construction going on in the apartment above us the whole 6 weeks, which did not give us much quiet time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nancy for the review. Sorry about the upstairs noise, but the timing was unavoidable. As to the dog you showed up with, I told you by previous email that no animals were allowed. We maintain a clean and animal free apartment so our guests who may have allergies do not have a problem. The no pet policy is clearly stated in my information. After you left we had to have all carpets, bedding etc. professionally cleaned to insure that our future guests are comfortable.

WE LOVED this Cozy tranquil retreat ! Fully equipped for short/long term stay. VERY peaceful & quiet

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem and it's location is phenomenal because it is within walking distance to historic downtown, filled with quaint shops, a multitude of restaurants and drinking establishments galore including at least 5 delicious breweries. ( don't miss the pretzel appetizer at the Sanford Pub- "It will change your life").

A few blocks further and you will find the lovely river walk park which borders beautiful Lake Monroe. There are a few waterfront restaurants and a scenic walking path.

For us, the Pallette was where we got our coffee fix in the morning(sadly not open Sundays or Mondays) .

As for the owner Wayne. What a kind and helpful man. He was always just a phone call away if we had any questions.

We are very excited to tell our friends and significant others about Wayne's place so we can plan our next trip!

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely apartment for the month of December while visiting family. Apartment was nicely furnished, beds comfortable, kitchen well stocked, washer and dryer, and convenient parking. Located in the historic neighborhood of Sanford, the apartment is within walking distance to the quaint downtown area where we found unique shops, art galleries and great restaurants. Lake Monroe and the marina is a couple of blocks away, where you can walk or cycle along the riverwalk. Favorite restaurants were The Smiling Bison, Corner Cafe and Hollerbach's.
