Melissa was VERY responsive as a host. Just like all the other people commented. Unfortunately I cannot say that her motto of "quality places at fair prices" was what I experienced. Yes, the place is simple and sparsely decorated. Not a huge deal. But it is in disrepair and in need of TLC and a good deep clean; doors, walls, handles, all the dishes, floors etc. The location is very convenient, close to UW.
Melissa was a great host, even made sure that she was there to hand us over the keys of the apartment well past midnight.
L'hôte est arrivée très tard pour le check in (3h de retard).
L'appartement est assez petit, il ne faut pas compter sur la petite pièce supplémentaire qui est un peu glauque.
Dans l'ensemble l'appartement mériterai d'être remis en état.
La moquette ne me paraissait pas très propre.
La salle de bain était limite.
La cuisine manquait d'assiettes, couverts, verres et autres ustensiles.
Internet marchait bien, et lorsqu'il fallait redémarrer le routeur, l'hôte le faisait très rapidement.
Nous n'avons vu l'hôte que 2 fois.
Je trouve que le prix que nous avons payer était excessif.
Check in time 3 pm means anytime after 3 pm is OK. So I am not necessarily there everytime at 3 pm but always leave the door unlocked and keys inside and told guests this way too if they ask. To give guests enough privacy, I only swing in to say hi once unless there are requests from guests.
