If you rent a first floor apartment at 40Rear/Lower or 40Front/Lower, you will have access to the rear patio / yard area. The patio area is shared between both apartments which have access to it; However, if you went Wiota/Lower, then there is no sharing – the connected patio is all you!

You can store bikes inside your leased unit, or chained to front exterior railing – but inside is obviously more secure.
