I stayed at Perry's studio for 5 weeks for research purposes. This place is unique and recommended to anyone looking for a place you can feel like being home. Very quiet, still central and in a great spot of smaller quality shops, cafes, friendly neighborhood and green space. Perry and his whole family have been lovely hosts.

Great apartment, great location, and friendly owners! We stayed here for 6 months (January - July 2019) while I was on appointment as a Fulbright Scholar in the CBD. We found the neighborhood delightful and safe, and the CBD was just a short train or tram ride away. Several good shops, parks, cafes, and restaurants are within walking distance. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay; the shared pool was wonderful in the hot weather! The owners were always quick to respond to any requests and address any issues that arose. We highly recommend this unit, and are looking forward to coming back some day!
