This was a lovely home and exactly what we were looking for. Art was extremely accomodating , as well as being very knowledgeable about the area and friendly.
Arthur made me feel welcome throughout my stay. I enjoyed his conversation. The description of the room was accurate. The neighborhood was clean and I felt very safe.
The only problem I had was that there were noises in my room that made it difficult for me to fall asleep and stay asleep. Arthur worked with me to deal with this, letting me move to another room where the noise was less bothersome to me. I am a very light sleeper and I suffer from insomnia a lot of the time. I need to remember to talk to any future host about this. Perhaps airbnb is not for me.
Art is as hospitable and kind as a person could be, as well as flexible with logistics and support for my mom and her godson, who stayed with him through my airbnb account. I highly recommend him as a host and his photos and description of his place are accurate.
Art's hospitality was exceptional. The accommodations were pleasant, clean and quiet. I slept very well both nights. The mattress was great. Art asked me ahead of time what I wanted for breakfast. I felt very well cared for. I can definitely recommend this host.
