The apartment has two slightly quirky features:
1) The entrance is through the bathroom. However, previous guests staying in the apartment have not minded this at all. The comfortable and nicely furnished bedroom/sitting room plus fantastic location of the house are the standout features that more than make up for this slight quirkiness.
2) There is no kitchen sink; dish washing is done in the bathroom sink. There is a shelf next to the sink to hold a dish drying rack. We've even had long term guests stay here, and all have found this a very workable feature.
Regarding the security deposit: no one has ever been charged this... it is there as a precaution only.
We look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful town of Fairfield, Iowa!
