I found this awesome place through a family friend, and am looking for a roommate to share the space with me. It is a quick four-block walk to VFS, is already furnished, has a gym and pool, internet, and a garage. The rent mentioned in the listing is your half--it might seem a bit steep but after I did the math of what it would cost for transportation/parking, internet, buying furniture, laundromat, and gym membership at other cheaper places it actually worked out to be about the same for a really nice place.
This place is/ has:
- 15 minute walk to VFS campus
- furnished
- utilities and internet included
- washer and dryer in unit
- pool/hot tub
- gym
