Blanka is such a kind and welcoming host. It was nice to have someone ask me about my day when I arrived and if she was home. The room is great and the restroom is also cozy. Getting in and out of the house is very easy.

This was one of the best AirBnB stays. Blanka’s hospitality and attention to details are outstanding and the place is the living definition of “sparkling clean.” I’m so thankful I got to stay with her during the very busy trip so that I could rest and feel “at home” peaceful.
