Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Gabrielle and Robert were excellent hosts, I really enjoyed my one-night stay. The house was quiet and comfortable. I look forward to a chance to stay again the next time I visit the Bloomington area.

  • My wife and I have a lovely stay with Rob and Gabe. Their property is lovely and was obviously put together and decorated with attention to detail. We were continually noting aspects of their home that we liked and would like to borrow from ourselves! Rob and Gabe were friendly and happy to give advice on local attractions. We were also able to use their TV room and roam the rest of the house. On the whole, the stay we had was lovely and I can hardly think of any way it could be improved! Thanks so much, Rob and Gabe!

  • Couldn't get enough and had to come back! Great place to get work done, and I had a nice conversation with Gabrielle that gave me insight on a personal issue, and for that I am very grateful! Did I mention their sheets are softer than mine? So easy to fall asleep!

  • Gosh, to tell the truth, I didn't want to leave at all! What a cool, funky house and what amazing hosts Gabrielle and Robert are! They're law professors, and that's like hanging out with rock stars. The kitchen is divine and so is the view of the back deck. The bright, sheer yellow curtains highlight the backdrop that cheers up the view even more. There was no shortage of supplies, down to fresh towels, body wash, hair cleansers, available Sharpies, and filtered water. My favorite part of staying there were reading law books on their shelves, playing with their funny green aliens, and hanging out with the hosts for interesting conversations. I would love to visit again and again. Highly recommend!

  • I had a lovely stay in Bloomington with Gabrielle and Robert. The house was beautiful and full of light. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

  • I occasionally need to stay over in Bloomington for business, this was my first experience with Airbnb and it was terrific! I thoroughly enjoyed spending the evening in Gabrielle and Robert's lovely home. My daughter is a student at nearby Indiana University and she joined me for take out in the serene setting.
    I would highly recommend this booking and plan to use it again. :)

  • We had a great stay at Gabrielle and Robert's home. They have wonderful taste in decor and everything was very clean. It was nice to get to know them and they were attentive, sharing coffee and tea with us and answering our questions about Bloomington. The house is in a lovely setting surrounded by nature and some nice walks nearby, plus it is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Bloomington.

  • My son and I stayed one night with Gabrielle and Robert while attending an Indiana basketball game. Their home was less than 5 minutes from the assembly hall, but provided that country feel we were looking for. They made our stay very comfortable and we felt right at home. This was our first time in Bloomington so we needed some advice on places to eat and they knew all the great places. We enjoyed our stay and meeting new people.

  • My stay with Rob and Gabrielle far exceeded my expectations. This was my first time to use airbnb and given this warm and exceptional experience, it will not be my last.

    November 2013
  • We had a delightful stay with Gabrielle and Robert. This was our first experience with airbnb and we weren’t sure what to expect. They couldn’t have made it easier or more pleasant. Their home was warm and inviting. The beautiful setting was peaceful and quiet. We especially appreciate that they went out of their way to accommodate our late evening arrival.
