We enjoyed our stay. The house is located very close to town, playgrounds, beaches, other water activities, grocery stores, and other conveniences.
Janna was so helpful and friendly.She tried to understand my English that I could get across to her. And her response was very quickly. I could stay with peace of mind.
The house was in a good location. International Market and a bus stop to go to downtown are in the near distance. It was very convenient to live.
And then, I could go to the Lake Washington in a minute which is located near house. Lake Washington is the most favorite place for me!! The lake is amazing!!
Janna was so kindly and friendly. So I would love to stay and see her again!!
Janna kindly allowed us to have a late departure time that we appreciated.
Everything went smoothly. Janna was easy to work with to organize our visit. House was in a good location and good value compared to the local hotels which were either booked out or crazy expensive.
Janna was an incredible host. She gave us a welcome sheet with the wifi and necessary information for staying at the house, with plenty of instructions on how to use everything and a list of places to visit and eat. She is an airbnb pro, for sure. The house was beautiful, clean, well-maintained, and for three girls, we had a lovely time staying there. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone staying in the area. The house is roomy, with plenty of beds and places to sleep, and also a wonderful TV/sitting area with a beautiful view of the lake. It's a short walk down to the waterfront, and if you turn right down at the end of the street, you're only a few minutes from the Kirkland Waterfront (an absolutely gorgeous lakefront street with parks and plenty of cute shops to visit and places to eat). I would HIGHLY recommend this Airbnb and the host.
Janna was a great host - she was extremely responsive, and flexible when my flight times were severely delayed. She made me feel right at home, and it was a very easy walk to my office (Google Kirkland). Highly recommended for other Googlers.
She in no way made me feel welcomed. She kicked me and some girlfriends out at 5pm (check in time was 4) because she came to check up on us ( what right do you have to check up on a paying customer ?) and found us getting ready for a concert and kicked everyone out including myself and the other gal who were in the agreed upon contract. Because she was "concerned for the saftey of the home" we are 30 year old women that were getting ready for a concert and we weren't even drinking! Do not rent from this host; she watched everything you do at this place.
This was unfortunately the first worst experience I had for the last two years being as an AIRBNB host. The guest was very irrisponsible individual ever who did not follow to the T&C in the contract. Lacey agreed to have only one guests- however, broke the contract by having up to 10 additional guests in the house. Also, Lacey Huston did not cooperate with me when I requested to meet pior check in time. When I insisted on the meeting Lacey Huston claimed that she does not want to see me while being very agressive and disrespectful on the phone. Thank you AIRBNB for the active support on this one as I called AIRBNB immideately after the phone call. They suggested to make another claim if there any damages or loss were made by the guests hwich is currently in the process. My neighbours were very concerned on the propery safety and the guests behaviour overall. When I arrived at the property I found up to 10 females in the house. Some of them including Lacey Huston were under high level of alcogol influence. Lacey was extremely disrespectful and aggressive. Due to my personal safety and safety of my neighbours I asked her guests to leave immideately. I asked my neighbours to be there for any additional support as needed.
My lesson/learned/recommendation to any hosts - please make sure to verfiy your guests contact information including direct phone number/address/AIRBNB review) Make sure to meet your guest personally prior check in. Please have your security depost in case there is any damages are made to the accomodation. Please stay away of the reservation with the guests such as Lacey due to unsafe/risky/dangeours situation you or your neighbours may get involve in. Lacey was dishonest and did not follow the T&C listed in ARIBNB contract. Please let me know if you have any additional questions related to this case.
