Very spacious, but very close to neighbors. No privacy! The basement smells moldy, the foosball table did not have a foosball, but a golf ball. Parking is plentiful, but very very tight. Close to road so there was ever present road noise. Minor problems such as leaky toilet power on one kitchen wall out. Plenty of dishes and glasses. Could use more washcloths and towels. Washer and dryer. Very small and dryer. Takes a long time to dry. Overall nice for a large family or group of people.
