The best thing is that it has a fenced yard for the dogs and privacy. The 2nd best thing is that the other unit in the duplex was empty. It would probably have been a bit noisy with neighbors passing in front of our door, up late perhaps and we wouldn't have had the privacy that we enjoyed. I only say this because if we rent it again, I would be disappointed if the next door unit was occupied. We spent most of our time away from the rental. We mainly used it to sleep.
