Dirk and Marilyn weren't there but, as promised, Aniekan & Max immediately made me feel at home. The house is very homey and well equipped. Easy to get to on the excellent public transit system. Marilyn has anticipated every need and has things labeled so you know where and what things are. The room was comfortable and I slept very well. Would like to go back.
I had a lovely and comfortable stay in Minneapolis at this home. They thought of everything and even ley me do some laundry. Absolutely no complaints and a super snuggly kitty too!
What a great stay. Marilyn was very good at communicating and gave me all the information I needed prior to arrival. When I arrived, after 1AM due to snow storm and flight delay, the house was very warm and welcoming. The cat, Isabel, was a sweetheart and greeted me right when I walked through the door. The room was a huge and had everything I needed. The bed was very comfortable. EVERYTHING in the bathroom and kitchen was very organized and well labeled--I had no trouble finding anything I needed. The complimentary breakfast was also very nice.
For my first AirBnB experience, I stayed in the Green Room for 3 nights to attend a conference. The bed was very comfortable and the house is cozy. Marilyn was very welcoming and friendly and made everything easy. It was great to be able to have coffee and feel right at home!
