I am a grad school student working on his PhD. I was looking for a study getaway for me and my girlfriend. The location was safe. There was a little noise outside at night as other residents would come home (which is expected, since the house is in a neighborhood), but all residents keep to themselves. We felt perfectly safe leaving my car outside overnight for all nights we were there. The entire place was clean, beautiful, and well put together. Plenty of lighting around the house. There was also plenty of space to store our stuff. Street parking was plentiful; there are two available spots in the back of the house, but we never needed to use them. The hosts were friendly, accommodating, and always available to help. They will contact you directly, far in advance so that you have a chance to coordinate your trip.
