Other Things to Note
Last year we have donated all our Airbnb earnings to UNICEF and ran the NYC Marathon for the UNICEF team. For this year we will stay committed to donate a part of all proceeds to UNICEF. Indirectly you'll support this cause by staying with us in Oneonta!
We'd like to stick to a no pets and no smoking inside the house policy. Other than that, we don't have rules, just make yourself at home!
I checked in late and the room was ready and above expectations! Ingrid and Henryk are very hospitable and friendly. The house is ideally located walking distance from Wilbur Park and a couple of miles from downtown Main Street. The guest room is pleasantly decorated with lots of natural lighting. The guest bathroom is private and right in the guest room. This is my first experience with AirBnB and it was a memorable one. I highly recommend staying in Ingrid and Henryk's place if staying in Oneonta, NY.
Excellent stay. Clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. Excellent communication with our host before and during our stay. Walk to downtown, quiet neighborhood.
We absolutely loved staying at Henryk and Ingrid's home. The space was comfortable, homey, historic, charming and relaxing, and we especially enjoyed relaxing in the hammock and walking in the nearby park. It was great to be within walking distance of charming Main St. in Oneonta. Our hosts made every effort to take care of all details, communicated regularly and responded quickly to our inquiries. Although they were out of town during our visit, we felt well taken care of, and appreciated their hospitality. I would come back in a heartbeat!
Henryk and Ingrid were very good hosts. We communicated by email a couple of times and the room was just fine. The neighborhood features a pretty park just a block away that is great for walking, and the town is situated well for touring the Catskills, Cooperstown, and the Hudson River Valley. It was delightful to leave the windows open in the summer to catch a breeze. I felt welcomed and comfortable in the home. Front porch is great for sitting.
Henryk and Ingrid were so welcoming and accommodating to us since we had an extra friend with us. Their home is adorable and the guest room is filled with light and very comfortable. The breakfast was the sweetest and fresh bread was a real treat! Would recommend staying here to all! Go O-State!
We got a little lost leaving NYC, it was easy to communicate to Ingrid that we would be getting in late. She stayed up and greeted us upon our arrival, showed us around the house and was warm & inviting.
Staying with Ingrid & Henryk was great! The accommodations were lovely and we really enjoyed their location. Both Ingrid & Henryk were very friendly and asked us to join them for breakfast on our last day.
About the Host, Henryk Ingrid
We are a Dutch couple living in the USA. In 2012 we moved from the beautiful Dutch city of Groningen in the Netherlands to the town of hills 'Oneonta' (upstate NY). Airbnb is a great way for us to explore all the beauty that the US has to offer. We travel a lot and love to experience life to the maximum! We like meeting new people and the concept of Airbnb. We'll both run the NY Marathon this year in support of Unicef. 50% of the earning we generate through Airbnb will be donated to UNICEF. Together with our guests we would like to contribute to their main goal: ZERO preventable child deaths in the world!.
