So thankful to Alana for opening her home up to us, especially after we requested her Airbnb last minute. She was super attentive and made sure we were able it get in ok and were settled. Really cute neighborhood near public transportation, too.

What I loved the most about staying at Alana's was the facts that she was super responsive, always there to assist even from a distance and of course, her knowledgeability about her house, neighborhood and best tips. She is also great at conversations and I think she goes the ext…

We had an unfortunate last minute change in housing needs. We did our best to accommodate everyone, but in the end thought it best to cancel.

Alana was very welcoming and easy to talk to. She maintained active communication with us throughout our stay. Before booking, you will want to clarify if the host is staying in the same house with you.

Response from Alana:
Dear Sharon, Thank you for staying with us. I was surprised to read your review and private comments. I think one helpful thing to let hosts know is direct answers to their questions about your accommodations. When we repeatedly asked if you and your guests were comfortable and especially if you heard any noise from the basement none of you let on that noise or intrusion on your privacy was an issue. We were not expecting the review or low rating based on our interactions. When you and your guests told us that the only sounds that bothered you were the chirping of the fire alarm, we immediately changed the battery and then inquired about noise. If there was more, why did everyone say that they couldn't hear us at all while we stayed in the basement? I've lived here for two years, my husband and son have to be shouting or playing music at super high volumes to be audible upstairs. Perhaps you heard your friends in the bedroom next to the living room? We've even had others stay here with no complaints. Your remarks are both odd and late. I wrote too soon when I said you'd changed my mind about Airbnb guests. It seems to be a common thread to say one thing to a host's face, but write somethings different on a review. Then to give poor ratings for things easily addressed with transparency. I'm sorry that you had such a miserable experience.

Response from Alana:
Dear Molly, Thank you for your review. As we are new we did not understand the listing of entire house. We have corrected this. Also, we are really glad you let us know about the beds. They are comfortable to use, but we will keep this in mind should we have extra funds to upgrade. Japanese style futons are not for everyone! Even with memory foam pads. The pricing was set by Airbnb, what would you suggest?
