My Mom had an amazing stay in this beautiful and spacious studio. Vivian was incredibly nice. Warmest recommendations!
This was my second time staying at Vivian's place that is how much I like it there! Totally convenient to everything downtown Princeton has to offer.... you can leave your car and just walk around! The apartment is also close to many things outside of Princeton as well...
It is a comfortable,clean, private space that I highly recommend! I look forward to going back again in the future!
We really enjoyed staying at the studio. Comfortable and pretty. The host is so kind and friendly.
Our stay in Vivian's studio was great. We especially appreciated the clean and well-equipped kitchen, the general spaciousness, and the proximity to Westminster Choir College, where our daughter is a student. Everything is as as advertised. We ended up here as part of a "plan B" scenario, since the B&B where we normally stay was unavailable that weekend. We absolutely loved it here, and this is our new "plan A" Princeton crash pad.
This studio apartment is centrally located near the stores on Nassau Street, and the Princeton University campus. The Whole Earth Center natural foods grocery store is a short walk away. The apartment is very light and airy, spacious, and quiet and peaceful--a home away from home. Free parking is available. Vivian and her husband Frank were welcoming and accommodating and responsive. Everything about the rental was easy and comfortable. I highly recommend this rental for couples or families.
About the Host, Vivian
I have lived in Princeton on and off for the last 16 years with my husband and two children and feel very lucky to call it home. I am a freelance editor/writer, my husband works in project management, and my parents live in the main yellow house next to the studio. We have lived in Russia, Ireland, and England, among other places and love to travel. We were in Colombia visiting family over the holidays and went to an amazing hummingbird garden, and were in Iceland last year following the stories of the Icelandic Sagas- we love Snorri Sturluson and highly recommend the Seal Museum on the Vatnsnes Penninsula. We have stayed with Airbnb hosts around the world, and have met wonderful people.
