It was my first airbnb experience & it was such a pleasure to be at Sheila's place. The view from the balcony of flights taking off every minute & the waterfront view was awesome. Shiela & the little ones were very cheerful & welcoming. The room & the bed was extremely comfortable. Thanks Sheila
Sheila was very welcoming and helped us get situated quickly. I was a very late checkin ( 9pm ) and a very early checkout ( 5am ). I can't say too much since it was short lived but I would totally come back! :)
Thanks for having me Sheila! :D
Sheila was very accommodating in coordinating our estimated arrival time even though we didn't have a working mobile phone with texting or calling setup. She welcomed us upon arrival and showed us our room. We didn't get a chance to interact with her too much since we had jam packed days planned throughout our stay :) Regardless, we knew Sheila was approachable and would always be there if we needed anything at all. Her home was very lovely and the room was accurately described in the listing. The view from the balcony was nice! We would love to come back and would deeply consider staying with Sheila again if we have happen to be in the area.
Thank you, Sheila, for having us!
A beautiful location right on the river front! Lovely area to walk for bird watching. Easy walk to grocery and restaurants. Sheila was a perfect hostess and the room was comfortable and clean. Upscale residential area in Richmond. The balcony provided a magnificent view. Nice private en suite shower and bathroom facilities. Sheila provided map and tourist information. She also provided laundry services for a very reasonable price.
The room was very nice with a great view off the balcony and a big plus was having the ensuite full bathroom Sheila was extremely helpful with directions and accomadating with my arrival and would definetly stay there again.The only thing is I had to leave early and didn't get a chance to thank her for the Xmas cookies she had left at my door the night before
Great stay! Sheila was very friendly and flexible with my early check in request. Quiet, clean, relaxing. Would definitely go back.
Felt very welcomed by Sheila. I love her little family.. I got to meet both kids the next morning. Little darlings.
