My stay with lbbie was super fantastic. Her communications were accurate and helpful and the facilities were perfect. Her skewed sense of humor matched mine and her attention to detail surpassed. I will definitely rebook on my next visit.

Ibbie was the warmest and nicest host I could wish for. She really helped me when I moved to Cambridge. Very nice house and at a great, central location. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Ibbie was an accommodating, charming , interesting host. House is close to shops, restaurants, bus stop and train station, but quiet at night. Room was spacious and clean and it had character.

I had a terrible experience at this place. I was booked for 7 nights, but after a few hours I decided to cancel my reservation and book a different place for the rest of my stay. This was my first bad experinece in AirBnb (I usually don't use my profile since most of the time I a…

Response from Ibbie:
My advert clearly states working people et but Erika seems to be the sort of person who sees rules sees boundaries and ignores them. Then complains. I have working people so that everyone is on the same sleep time. The guests I have are usually here for a short work placement research or to stay while the search for long term homes. They are doing work that is often literally changing the world and need a good nights sleep. They are thinkers and need brain power. So for that reason I don't take tourists. But air b and b have brought a new policy in now so that if we refuse people we get penalised. I am not making much money from air b and b as I have refused 11 people in a row before because they are students or tourists and I know they will be skpying late at night talking to each other etc and it will disturb the other guests. This new policy makes that impossible now. But you saw what my ad said but thought well that doesn't apply to me check out time, the same you thought it didn't have to apply to you . I was having my first time away ANYWHERE in TEN YEARS ahhh and I had to come back a day early as you would not take no for and answer or sort out some other solution for you luggage. You wanted to leave it at 9am, also to leave it in the room till 5pm on leaving day though check out time was 10 am ! How can I clean the room for the next person who might want to check in at 4 pm ? I said actually can we make it 8.15 as there is something I usually do at 9am. You agreed. However on my 8 hour journey home I started feeling ill and thought I cant cope with getting up at 6 am to clean sort out the house and asked you to come as you asked. At 9 am You didn’t bother to check your message all evening. So I had to set the alarm get up with a temperature of almost 101 rush around feeling like I was going to faint on the stairs to sort the house out for your arrival. But then you tell me you wont be coming till sometime between 4 pm -10pm and wont respond to my messages so I have to get air b and b to call you. Yes there is a code lock but almost no one has been able to work it out easily as people don’t follow the instructions but do what they think it should be then it locks them out if they do it wrong to many times. So I being a responsible kind host put my guests first and try my best to make sure I am here when they arrive. To make arriving stress free for my guests. I was so ill I needed to go to bed when I needed to go to bed, not wait up for you to arrive. Anyway okay things happen that would have all been okay I am very kind hearted. But your self interest didn’t stop there Then at 12.30 at night the boiler which is a few feet away from my bed switches on and wakes me up. You were having a shower at 12.30 at night !!! I got up to explain that it was too late at night and you had not only woken me up but you would wake up the other guests that would be coming next week and could you have a shower earlier in the evening. Now a normal person would have said oh I am so sorry I didn't realise it would effect you and all would have been fine. But you told me that you HAD to have a shower before you went to bed, and that you had paid money to stay in a air b and b and would do what you like !!! and if I didn't like it I shouldn't be doing an air b and b !!! lol lol omg wow what a spoilt inconsiderate person you are. You then made various phone calls dragged suitcases around to the early hours of the morning , changed your air b and reservation to leave the next day then at 1.19 in the morning sent me a message saying you were leaving but if you couldn't find a room you liked in the area where I lived you would NOT leave. Ahhh are you crazy ???? I had to ring air b and b who told you you had to leave. You also wanted me to store you bike inside my house. I think your a bit bonkers to be honest. I was going to pay the penalty to air b and b to tell you to leave but you did it first whew. My mortgage was due today had to borrow money to pay it but worth being short as you would have driven my other guests mad with your erratic selfish behaviour. This is an air b and b your in my home you have to share with other people and be considerate if you are not that sort of person stay in a travel lodge. Re hair-dryers and irons lol do you really think I should have 4 of each ? . I have been asked 3 times for each in about the last year. The people I have stay here are usually solving world problems, don't tend to blow dry their hair or iron jeans. So wouldn't want their rooms cluttered up. I was asleep when you asked to use it for the next day. It was in your hand within a minute. You told me you had to rush off when you arrived if you hadn't I would have had time to say do you need a hair-dryer? I have two and I would have given you one. The iron and the hair-dryers can be left outside your room I don't see why you needed to have one stored inside your room? But as I said I have a spare hair-dryer which you could have kept hold of as no one uses them. The slow draining bath. The plug hole is smaller than a shower drain hole. I explained that the waste pipe runs horizontally rather than vertically that it was slow draining as you have your shower and that you must take your hair out of the plug hole and not use hard soap as these block drains, both of what you ignored. I know a lot of people in Brazil and have full time housekeepers and don't have to do things like clean their own plug holes of their hair, but here in the UK people are expected to be responsible for clearing up after themselves. First world problem ! A slow draining shower water and your from Brazil where you should be very well aware of how many people don't have a shower let alone where the water runs away slowly. And re floor boards Carpets are dirty things full of dead skin cells. I have small rugs that I wash very very often and off cuts of new wool carpets from the shop at the end of the road that get replaced often as only £10 so if someone spills a cup of tea on it I don't charge them at all, let alone for replacing a carpet nor do they breathe in 15 years of other peoples skin cells. I have to be on call all the time having guests and it really limits my life work and social life. That is why I need to know that during 9 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday I dont have to rush home to sort out any problem. So I ask for working people so I have some sort of time to switch off . I made an exception for you as I had too because of air and b new policy. And you proved to be exactly the reason we has hosts need a break sometime. ! The door doesn't click into the exact space in the lock you have to push it slightly. It is a old house , out of 18 years of having people stay in that room your the only person that has mentioned it but maybe your nit picking as you want to give a bad review lol lol So in conclusion I return from my only time away in 10 years as your insisting on leaving your suitcases in my house first thing on a Saturday morning when the booking isn’t till after 4pm then you change your mind, Don’t respond to messages till air b and b ring you. You want to leave a dirty big bike inside my house, make loads of noise in the middle of the night, insult me, message me in the early hours of the morning, Cancel reservation in early hours of morning not caring that I have lost a lot of money and returned home for nothing. And then tell me you wont leave if you don't find anywhere else you like to move to. I feel like my head has been taken off turned round and round and put back on again. I WAS SO GLAD YOU LEFT ahhhh then you tell me you normally stay in air b and bs under a different persons name lol lo I BET YOU DO ! Lol It is not easy to get super host status and lots of lovely reviews. I am kind and considerate and you are NOT !
