Todo estuvo sensacional en la casa de Julie. Lo mejor de todo fue su disposición y alegría para explicarnos sobre la ciudad.
Las habitaciones y los baños estaban impecables. La cocina un espacio encantador para tener un delicioso desayuno y comenzar bien la mañana.
Our stay at Julie's was wonderful. She has a great home in a nice, quiet neighborhood. She was very welcoming and hospitable through all of our interactions. We were only in town for a day but would love to come back for an extended stay!
Quartiere molto carino immerso al verde, la casa bella e ricca di sapori per gli oggetti particolari presenti qua e là. L'accoglienza è stata ottima.
Julie and Paul were most welcoming Their enthusiasm for the area is evident and they were gracious in sharing tips and directions to make the most of our short time in the area. We felt very much at home here in their colorful, artistic, cozy home. And there were many special touches to accommodate travelers. Pretty neighborhood - nice for walking. Easy parking next to the house. We would definitely consider staying here again on future visits.
Julie & Paul were very welcoming and their home is truly beautiful, with heaps of character. The neighborhood was quaint, quiet, and sounded like a creek at night - it was perfect to sleep to. They even offered me a wonderful assortment of healthy breakfast items each morning during my 2 night stay. I was very comfortable and I won't hesitate to book again when I'm back!
Great stay at julie's place, the house is incredible and julie is adorable and gives good advice. Philadelphie is 15' away and this is a really beautiful city. Thank you for everything, we hope we can come back someday!!!
