Interaction with Guests
The home is actually now hosted by my amazing Mother. She owns the home and I converted it to an Airbnb after my own experience traveling and hosting in this home several times. I will do all of the booking and communication, but expect to see my Moms smiling face upon arrival. She is a retired Art Professor who still paints. And can tell you about some great places to visit in and around Tallahassee. She will be taking care of cleaning before and after, so please be kind and try not to leave big messes. We both look forward to having you as a guest. :-)
UPDATE** We try to accommodate all request, but please note, at times it is difficult to cater to a last minute request. So please understand if my Mom is not prepared to accommodate.
The neighborhood is quiet, modest 1950's neighborhood, that is family oriented. You will see neighbors and kids walking around or sitting on their front porch. There is a Church and Boys/Girls Club at the end of the road. Less than a mile away there is a grocery store, Drug Store, a few banks and a park. There are also many fast food and convenient stores, and you are only 5 minutes from restaurants, the Mall and Fresh Market.
Getting around by car is best, but there is a taxi service, and a city bus transit at the end of the street if need be.

Other Things to Note
** There is a second room in this house that is also listed on Airbnb, and there may be a rare occasion when you are sharing the bathroom with other guests.
** Smoking is permitted outside ONLY, Please use designated disposal.
We are pretty flexible with check-in and check out times. Depending on booking times for the next guest will determine if an earlier check in, or later check out is possible. Just let us know. My mothers home is your home, enjoy and respect the space. :) We have no expectations of when you come and go, I do just ask that you are mindful of possible other guests sleeping if you come in late. And when booking the room, please give us an approximate arrival time. You may bring a friend over for coffee or a drink, but please no unexpected overnight guests. Thanks, and we really look forward to having you. :)
I stayed at Yvonne and Tene's place for 9 nights, and it had been a wonderful experience. I truly felt at home and loved everything about it. The house is at a perfect location and the guest room I stayed in was not just super clean but also tastefully decorated. I have access to everything I needed - kitchen, washing machine, parking.... But what amazes me the most is how wonderfully Yvonne is as a host. I enjoyed every single minute of our hours long conversations on ceramics/painting/jazz/cooking, and felt privileged to call her a true friend by the time I left. This is the perfect demonstration of the true Airbnb spirit.
We had a wonderful one night stay. The host was delightful. The room was large, airy and comfy. We had all of the amenities we needed including closet space and part of the fridge to use. We had the bathroom to ourselves since the other room was not in use.
Yvonne is a charming and gracious hostess. She instantly made me feel right at home in her bright, art-filled home. The room was exactly as described, beautifully decorated, quiet and comfortable. Yvonne and Tene thoughtfully provided a selection of coffee, tea and snacks.
I really enjoyed my time with Yvonne! We spent one entire evening talking, exchanging stories late into the evening. I hope to be able to return, and would welcome the opportunity to stay here again.
Everything was very nice, all accommodations taken care of. We basically had everything a nice hotel would provide, like full towel sets, kitchen access, and even some snacks. The host is so nice and very interesting to talk to as well.
Tene and I communicated online. All the directions and access went very smoothly. Yvonne and I had a really nice time chatting. I made myself dinner in the full kitchen and had a great night's sleep in the clean and comfortable bedroom. The private bath is adjacent to the bedroom. The neighborhood is safe and close to a market. Most of all the home is warm and inviting.
Very. Nice house, very. Nice people, called for a dinner recommendation, and we were told of an excellent one that we loved. Made us feel right at home.
Yvonne and Tené wele very kind with us. We felt home since we arrived. The room is beautiful, clean, comfortble and warm. Unfortunatly we spent only one night there, but it would be great to stay more.

About the Host, Tene And Yvonne
My mom and I work together to host all of the wonderful guests that have come through my childhood home in Tallahassee, FL. Yvonne is a retired Art Professor which she still is an active artist and her home reflects that. I am a lover of travel, music and the arts as well. After experiencing Airbnb as guests, I found that hosting is a great way to keep my Mom active and busy and we both love the Airbnb community experience.
Happy travels. :-)
