Our first airbnb experience and it was wonderful! Mark and Iris made us feel very welcome and comfortable, they're super nice people! Everything about their home was comfortable and very clean. I will always check with them first for any overnight stays in Bloomington!
Iris was so kind to let me book her little gem for my mother, who stayed in an Air BnB for the first time! Before the trip, we found out that Iris had to go out of town, but she invited my mother to stay in the house on her own, and she also welcomed my in-laws to stay, too! It was so kind of Iris to accommodate us last minute, and the stay was wonderful. Set up like a true bed and breakfast, Iris set a breakfast table for us laden with food, coffee, and tea, and the outside deck was lovely. The room had fresh bottled water, tea, and other amenities (the bath robe was a cozy touch!), and everything was very clean. It was so nice to stay in a fur-free cat home! We loved meeting the kitties, and thank you again for your hospitality, Iris. It was a true vacation, and we will book again when we're back in Bloomington!
p.s. Check-in was so easy -- what a great idea to have a code!
Thank you so much for staying with us and we are so happy that your mother enjoyed her stay! We love our home and love to share it! Do visit us again if you need a place in Bloomington. The door code was an idea that we adopted from an AIrBnB stay that we had and thought it was a great idea too!
We appreciated your kind review!
Mark and Iris
Iris and Mark were exceptionally welcoming and generous. Their home is beautiful and the guest room is very comfortable and private, complete with tea kettle, china cups and a selection of teas. They left breakfast for me as well.
Iris and Mark are such great hosts! very welcoming and accommodating. I booked their place for my mother who had an extremely comfortable, nice, and memorable stay. The actual room looks even better than the picture, has a lot of character, and is very comfortable. Iris and Mark were very keen to make any arrangements needed to ensure my mother was comfortable. I really appreciated that. The house is in a very nice neighbourhood too! Overall it was a great stay and I highly recommend it!
Iris and Mark were excellent hosts. Iris was very prompt and responsive during the booking process and the living space was exactly as pictured on the reservation page. Iris and Mark were also very congenial and made sure to provide reservations and tips for how to navigate Bloomington. Also, the cats were pretty cool too. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling to the area.
Iris and Mark were great hosts and made us feel extremely welcome in Bloomington. The bed was super comfortable, the big showerhead powerful, and everything was extremely clean. Though not in the city center, Iris and Mark's house is still really conveniently placed close to the city (as long as you're driving).
