Interaction with Guests
I expect to be present to welcome you when you check in, but if I am unable to do so, I will provide you with easy instructions to gain access to the house. I welcome the opportunity to interact with guests -- or give you peace and quiet if you prefer. I may not be present every night of your stay, depending on my work or travel schedule.

I stayed with Thib for 10 weeks this summer during an internship. The home is clean and orderly, and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. I could not have asked for a better host. He was courteous and very attentive to any possible needs, and made every effort to make my stay enjoyable. My experience was wonderful--I highly recommend Thib and his place.
Where is the sixth star?
Thib is really nice and easygoing. I really felt at home. He even picked me up when the car rental service denied to give me a ride back. Super nice guy, totally recommended.
The place is really quiet and comfortable. High speed Internet works fine. Everything is very clean.
He gives lots of tips on how to get there and how to use public transportation.
Very private, indeed! Due to conflicting travel schedules, I never actually met Thib, but he provided a very smooth experience nevertheless. His email and text communications before and during my stay were clear and complete and the house contained helpful labels and instructions throughout. It all worked very well and I'd be happy to stay there again (and maybe meet him in person...)
Thib was great. Accommodated my late-in-the-day booking and arrival, and the house was very nice with a comfy bed in a neat little neighborhood. Would be glad to stay again and would have loved to hang out a little more, but was in town for an interview and had to prepare/get to sleep early.
My experience was very pleasant. Upon my arrival Thib gave me a good tour of his home and available facilities. I felt comfortable and welcomed. The place was spotless and well organized!!
Great to stay at Thib's place, and very easy going. Clean room and bed. He has pink notes posted to say where everything is in the cupboards. Good WiFi
Thib was very hospitable; everything was clean and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.Highly recommended.
