Please note we have a 30 to 91-night stay minimum. 30-night stays may be arranged for immediate occupancy or in the alternative for dates out in advance if the reservation dates fall more or less contiguous with an existing reservation. If your preferred dates are not for immediate occupancy (more or less) or are not contiguous with existing reservations, we require a 91-day minimum stay commitment. Please refer to our online calendar to plan your stay with us!

We utilize a hybrid version of the hotel model as far as overnight guests and charges are based on occupancy. This as opposed to an open-ended apartment model, although even conventional rental apartment pricing is somewhat based on occupancy where maintenance and utility charges can get adjusted. Additionally, our variable costs such as utilities, housekeeping and laundry services increase with additional occupants.
