Jennifer is a warm and accommodating lady. My stay in her home was very pleasant and comfortable. I would certainly stay with her again. Her animals are rescues (which truly speaks to her character). If you do not like animals, consider other accommodations. The location is convenient to everything you could ever want for. Her lovely neighborhood is established, extremely safe, parking is exceptionally easy and the garden is peaceful and enjoyable. Thank you Jennifer.
Jennifer is a lovely hostess and sweet company. Her home and pets are charming. If you are not an indoor pet lover, this is not the place for you, but her dogs are kind and well-behaved. Jennifer cares for her guests as they were family, and her warmth is what makes the stay special.
Jennifer was very sweet and accommodating. Before I even arrived she called me to make sure my travels went well and I knew how to get to her house. She did everything she could to make her house feel like home to me. Her neighborhood was cute, safe, and close to lots of restaurants and things to do. Definitely recommend Jennifer and her house.

Jennifer is a lovely woman, she has had an amazing life and is extremely interesting to talk to. She is also very caring and accommodating. She even provided Bagels and OJ for my breakfast, which I love.
I loved my room and the characterful decorations in the house. Whilst I was there she had other guests who had been there for a while and they were also interesting and friendly.
I enjoyed my stay thoroughly and would recommend her home to friends.
My extended stay with Jennifer was lovely. My room was comfortable and the house is conveniently located. Jennifer is a kind woman who makes her guests feel at home.
