I would highly recommend this place. It is as beautiful as the woman who runs it.

I really enjoyed Selia's Sub Tropical get away inside the city. It was such a nice calm and relaxing environment. I wish worked could have kept me there just a little longer.

Very beautiful setup with the backyard and gardens. Neighbor can be noisy at times, but Selia very helpful with that. Convenient location.

The apartment was well equipped and the koi pond and surrounding garden area was beautiful and relaxing. That this landscape exists is the middle of the city is surreal.

This was one of the most unique places I've stayed in all my travels. The thought and detail across Selia's property was worth the time to appreciate and take in. Selia is an artist (among many other talented skill sets) and her home is a work of art - her work of art. It was a joy and absolute pleasure to stay here. My work was less than 10 minutes drive, so location was perfect. I had my 18 month old with me and so Selia's magical menagerie was a delight for him. Selia even brought him along with her when she collected eggs from the chickens and fed the fish and her doves. What a treat! And Pippen the duck and Lucy the goose were wonderful friends we got to say hello to every day. We will be back again and again and again, I just know it! Thank you, Selia!

I am an artist who bought the house next door and also the one behind my property. I love gardening, photography, graphic design, playing guitar, writing songs, decorating, taking care of my birds, flowers and tenants. I get a lot of joy from having my photos accepted in gallery exhibitions, singing, playing with birds, visiting with tenants in the garden, and taking care of people and making them comfortable. I am a nurturer. My motto for life is "The best way to have joy in your life is to give it to others."
