John and Margarita were wonderful hosts. It felt like I was staying with my parents for the night! We had biked 40 miles that day, and when we arrived, John immediately offered us some chili and a cold beer. We had a wonderful time talking and the room itself was beautiful. The perfect end to a perfect day. Thanks John and Margarita!
This was my first Airbnb experience and it more than met my expectations. John and Margarita are warm and welcoming hosts, and I feel like I have new friends in Skippack. The accommodations are just as they described: a HUGE room making up the entire top floor of their lovely suburban home, with a comfortable double bed, single bed (I think I saw a trundle underneath), as well as one of the largest sectional sofas I've ever seen (my 6'2" teen preferred it to the beds). Great for families, couples, cyclists, and musicians!
Wow amazing people. Awesome hosts, they made my family so comfortable and even invited my son to have dinner with them, since he lives close and misses home cooked meala while in college.
Feels like family. The home is beautiful, clean, warm, spacious. they are true, hospitable, people with much character and love.
Their little dog Buddy is adorable and my kids and I all want to go back and visit this wonderful family. I will return for sure anytime I visit my son in school, love to have them to my home.
John and Margarita are wonderful hosts! Incredibly friendly and hospitable. The room was big, clean, and had a private bathroom. We were so comfortable that it was hard to get up in the morning!
