My Hosts were very friendly and made feel very welcome. The house was very neat and well maintained. I wish I could have seen the actual room I was staying in. While it was nice, I thought it was going to be a little more modern, like the the picture of the kitchen.

Dirk and Marilyn were such good hosts. They had everything laid out and directions were clear. The room was comfortable and spacious. The full shower was downstairs, which wasn't a problem, and there was a half bath upstairs that was convenient. Dirk and Marilyn were always so nice and had plenty of recommendations. Good ones, too. The house in a great location- close to wonderful food and drinks. Such a cool area.

Marilyn and Dirk are delightful hosts! The room is very clean and comfortable. Amazing kitchen and appealing bathrooms. The neighborhood is a prime place for exploration (and for me a big plus that it’s a few, mere blocks away from MIA!) It’s also an easy walk to city center (maybe a quick drive in the winter). Many thanks! Susan
