Shira's apartment was above and beyond my expectations. I stayed there with my adult family (ranging in age from 27-61) and could not have been more pleased. The place is right up the street from great cafes and restaurants, a 1 minute walk from a lovely promenade and the recently renovated Old Train Station, and 5 minutes from the German Colony. The décor is sophisticated and stylish, the amenities were all high end (3 full baths, parking, and a washer and dryer go a long way!) and we felt right at home. Aside from the occasional bark from a neighborhood dog, it was quiet during the night.
Also, Shira was quick to respond to any questions both before and during our stay.
I'd highly recommend this apartment to a family, friends or several couples travelling together.
