In addition to your bedroom and bath, guests have access to the kitchen, living room, dining room, family room and deck, basically the entire house.
I enjoy interacting with my guests, getting to know them and providing them information that will make their stay productive and enjoyable. I find most Airbnb guests are looking for some interaction. At the same time, I respect the guest's time, preferences and privacy.
My neighborhood is quiet while being a short drive to great restaurants, supermarkets, local businesses, corporate centers, parks and attractions.
Commuter trains to Philadelphia and beyond are a 12-15 minute drive.
Mike was friendly and helpful. He clearly knows what he is doing. But, we only stayed for a day and were busy so we didn't interact much. The area is beautiful and accommodations were immaculately clean. It would have been nice to stay longer. The bed was a little hard for my taste (but that's a personal preference). I would stay here again.
Mike Mays is a wonderful host. We (3 of us) stayed at his nice home for a few nights recently, and were very comfortable in the large bedroom and the adjacent smaller one. The house is in a quiet, suburban area, but within short driving distance to all conveniences. It is spotlessly clean, and well equipped - we had full access to his kitchen, porch, living room etc. Due to a medical problem, we could not arrive on the first day, but Mike graciously adjusted the rent for that day with the amount we had to pay him for the additional bedroom on the last two days.
What I liked most about our stay was talking to Mike about the voluntary work he does to run a school for disadvantaged girls. He is interesting and engaging, and interested in his guests. He is also very helpful - he gave us a ride to the nearest SEPTA station (which turned out to be quite far!) so that we could pick up our rental car from Philadelphia. Having a car is essential, because Mike's house is deep in the suburbs - there is almost no public transport in the vicinity. This wasn't a major problem for us, as we needed a car anyway.
I'd stay in Mike's home again, if I were to be in that area. Strongly recommend it to others.
This is a gem of a home-totally clean & tidy, just like in the photo. The bathroom was next to the bedroom. Michael was a great host & advised us of places to eat, how to locate a running trail nearby, & we were able to keep our food cold in his refrigerator for the 2 days. Also had lots of closet space. We were able to come & go as needed. Thank you for the opportunity of meeting you.
Michael made me feel at home and welcome. His place is very tranquil and quiet and its only about 10 minutes from SAP where I was going. Next time I am in NSQ I will look to stay here again.
Traveled to Newtown Square to visit family and found Michael's accommodations extremely comfortable. This was my first airbnb experience and Michael made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my rookie questions. Enjoyed a wonderful visit and hope to return in the near future!
My parents and my aunt stayed at Mikes house cause they were visiting me here in America (I'm here as an au pair) and they really enjoyed it. The house is very beautiful and big. They had two seperated rooms which was really good and their own bathroom. Everything was super clean and neat. They felt very comfortable there. They made themself a home there for those days (like Mike always said they should feel like home here). He also offered them to use the large kitchen the Dining room living room washer etc.. actually everything they needed :). He also welcomed me at his home. I stayed there a few nights with my Family cause we did a lot of trips and had to leave early in the morning sometimes. So I didn't have to drive from my place to my parents' before that. What I really appreciated :). So I had the Chance to spend as much time as possible with my family.. Thanks again, Mike.
Also Mike is a very friendly person even though he wasn't home that often while we were there we enjoyed talking with him and our time at his house.
I would really recommend that accommodation :)
Mike was a very generous host and well prepared. I had a great time and the only regret I had was that my schedule did not allow for more time talking with him. The room was spotless as is the bathroom which I had to myself.
I especially enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table and having a good coffee, highly recommended if you are not in a hurry.
As far as location goes. Perfect if you need to work @SAP. Located center between bars (West Chester) and the office it is great for short travel times or quickly changing closing on the way to dinner.
Mike was a wonderful host and made every effort to make sure our weekend was enjoyable. He could not have been more courteous. His home is gracious and welcoming. The neighborhood felt safe and comforting. The private room and bath were just perfect for our needs. Mike was very helpful in recommending certain places to eat nearby. Overall, our stay was wonderful and I heartily recommend this home as a place to stay while in the Philadelphia area.
Stayed here while attending a wedding at Ridley Creek State Park. It is a beautiful home and great location near the park. Mike was a great host, he called the day before we left to make sure we knew how to get in and even had some pumpkin bread for us to try. I was sad not to meet him in person but, his room was clean and comfortable and had a great bathroom too. It is a comfortable neighborhood and great price! It was a hassle-free and comfortable experience. Thanks Mike!
My husband and I spent an enjoyable weekend in the Philly area using Michael's lovely home as our base. He graciously waited up for us when we were delayed arriving. The home is very comfortable and the townhouse neighborhood very attractive. Mike offered some suggestions for restaurants and a winery. If you enjoy public gardens, this is a nice central home base. We highly recommend this congenial host and his comfy home.
