Interaction with Guests
I keep a busy schedule so sometimes I may see very little of my guests after we have met and I make sure they are settled in. I very much enjoy the conversations that come up when we do connect, but have found that my guests are generally as busy as I am!
I do make it a point to be available via phone and text to address any questions or concerns.
I ask that my guests do not smoke or light candles or incense during their stay at my home.
Enjoyed our stay at Hilary's. Very comfortable environs, especially the art and home color schemes. Hilary was very helpful in letting us know where to find places of interest in the vicinity. Her pets are very entertaining as well.
Everything was exactly as described. Rocky, the dog and Tom, the cat were stellar greeters and really added to the relaxed quality of my stay in Hilary's home. The room was comfortable and it was nice having my own bathroom. The neighborhood was very quiet at night. I hope to stay here again when I next come to Northampton.
I felt very welcome, the description was accurate, and I will hope to stay with Hilary on my next visit to Northampton and will recommend her to others.
She left clear instructions and welcoming messages so that, although she wasn't home when I arrived, I could settle in comfortably and find everything I needed. Her cat was delightfully welcoming to this cat lover. And to my surprise there was a pet turtle who greeted me by bouncing up and down in this pond. quite delightful. My room was ready and comfortable and the kitchen attractive and easy to use. The residential neighborhood is lovely and shops are a short distance away. The hostess was personable and helpful with directions.
I have stayed with Hilary before, and again, had a wonderful experience. Hilary is always hospitable and the pets, Rocky the dog, Tom the cat and Ed the turtle are a lot of fun! The space is homey, clean and close to many of Northampton's restaurants, grocery stores and other local venues.
Thank you again, Hilary for another wonderful stay in your home. I will definitely be back! :-)
Hilary was communicative and left good directions for us when we arrived before she got home! Our room was sunny and warm and cozy and the bathroom was clean. We very much enjoyed our stay. :)
All stars!! Hilary was a very inviting host. Her home is beautifully decorated, clean, and easy to find. I was in town for an interview and felt right at home when staying with Hilary. Her cat, Tom, is extremely friendly and sweet. Also, the bed in the guest room is very comfortable. Overall, I highly recommend this airbnb. Thank you Hilary!
Hello future guests!
I decided to open up my home after having had a great experience with Airbnb in California.
I've lived in Northampton for over a decade and am a big fan of this area. Each season brings its own delights.
Look forward to meeting you sometime soon!
