It would not be easy to find another host as gracious, wonderful & heart-warming like Angela. My family and I stayed at her house for 11 days and it has been a wonderful experience. Angela had prepared a fresh bowl of fruits to welcome us and my mom was absolutely thrilled by it. The house is very clean and tidy, the rooms are big with comfortable beds & ample wardrobe space. The neighborhood is quiet & safe for evening walks. My parents spent quite some time exploring her entire garden. We are truly grateful for the wonderful experience.
Angela is a very friendly, kind, helpful and considerate host. She provided me with a big bowl of fresh fruits when I first arrived and my room was clean and very comfortable. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and the garden is beautiful. She even let my family pick fresh produce from her garden.
Angela is a most gracious host. She went out of the way to make us feel really welcome, including ensuring that the place was really cleaned up even though she had a departure the same morning we were arriving, and showed us all the places for amenities and the mall. It has been one great experience at Angela's.
Angela is the nicest host I've ever seen. If there is any issue, you can count on her to help you. Moreover, the house is very clean with a beautiful garden and there is all we need for a stay. The room is large with a comfortable bed. I had an internship in the CSIRO and it was very close by feet from the house, the area is very quiet and close to a park where you can just sit down and read a book. I enjoyed my stay.
Angela is a very welcoming, kind, and respectful host.
The house is absolutely spotless, peaceful, and very comfortable. Angela's garden is also a delight for the senses.
Just to reiterate what all others have said - lovely home, clean, has everything you need, nice neighbourhood, I felt really settled here as soon as I arrived. Angela is such a star!
Angela is the best host ever. We booked her house for 10 days, and it's a amazing place. You can find everything you need in the house. Bedding in the house is quite nice. The garden is beautiful and so do the surroundings. Angela is so considerate and gave us much help these days. Thank you Angela, thanks for giving us such a pleasant experience.
Love nature, simple style, believe in kindness, fairness and hope will be treated the same in return.
I love almost everything in life, good food although, not a good cook, because do not have time to perfect it. I think, Vietnamese cuisine is most healthy, for it is more greens then meat, reading, documentaries, movies, musics of any kind, but no heavy metal please. So far, "The Piano" (Micheal Nyman), "Simply the Best" (Tina Turner) etc. are impressive to me. Above all, they are leisure tools for me to learn to understand others' shoe.
Go to the beach on a sunny day, hiking on the low land may be, because with the test of time, most physicals reduce their strength. Garden is one of my favorite hobby too and it is not unusual that I mess about from dawn to dusk at the garden, also love travel and have been in quite a few parts of the world.
After all, I am a mixture of modern and traditional women, a moderate and considerate.
