I was more than satisfied with my stay at Lydia's. Her contact person Marty, is very warm and professional. She was accessible when needed. The place is very clean. The neighborhood is quiet, in walking distance of the bus line and close to Case, UH and the Cleveland Clinic. As with any place, I do advise that you are indoors by nightfall as Cleveland in general can sometimes be unsafe.
La casa es muy linda en un vecindario muy tranquilo. A poca distancia de la Cleveland Clinic y a 15 minutos del centro de la ciudad con la Healthline.
Before you book this location, know that this area in Cleveland is not a safe neighborhood. Do your research. Don't make the same mistake I did.
For my part, Lydia and I had an agreement to keep my dog outside while I was at work. I assumed that there would be a fenced in back yard. There wasn't. Despite unsafe conditions, I complied with our agreement and my dog stayed outside while I was at work. She was only inside when I was at the house.
Due to the following reasons I couldn't stay at the house any longer.
(1)It was not a safe place for me or my dog. My dog could have been stolen any day. The house is not in a safe neighborhood (you can confirm this fact by talking to people in Cleveland regarding East 82nd Street). It was surrounded by abandoned buildings and boarded up houses. I felt unsafe living there.
(2)The central air conditioner was broken. When I brought this up with the manager (because the host lives in another country) I was supposed to get an AC unit in my room - I never did because it was broken as well. Then the AC unit that was placed in the living room (not in my room) broke down also, and was not helping any of the rooms.
(3)The dishwasher was also broken.
In conclusion, I was very disappointed with my experience. I kept true to our agreement, but the house/location was not a good fit. If you are looking to stay someplace for an extended period of time, know that Lydia made it extremely difficult to change my dates and the whole ordeal took nearly a month to resolve.
If she was upfront and honest about all these issues I would have never stayed at the house and if she was not okay with my dog she never should have agreed to me staying there. In her review, she referred to my girlfriend living there too, when she was just visiting because I was going to be there for an extended period of time.
I hope this helps.
Staying at Lydia's home was great. It's a large house and there was only one other person staying there at the time. It's kind of like a hotel where each room has a looked door. I came and went as I needed and the house staff was friendly and nice. It was wonderfully convenient to Little Italy and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo where I needed to be.
