It was not a vacation, it was a homecoming. Everything perfect, from the beautiful house , hear-worming host to little fire fly in the night. We are in-love with this place and will definitely come back here.
Our stay was just like staying with friends. Clare & Frank went beyond being wonderful in helping us find our way around the city. They made sure we had no concerns.
Clare and Frank were great hosts. They walked us thru the apartment and showed us where everything is located, how to work the appliances, lights, and heating/cooling system, etc. The accuracy of the listing exceeded our expectations. The only thing we had to bring was ourselves. There was no shortage of supplies. The neighborhood is just about crime free and very quiet. We had our own parking space and easy access to the apartment.Directions to the house was very easy to find. I'll say one thing. It is much better and more comfortable than a hotel. I highly recommend it. Exceeds a 5 star rating.
A friend and I lived there for a month. No doubt it was a wonderful stay and I felt very welcomed when I first get there. North Wales is a very convinient place to live and we really enjoyed living there. I have never lived in US before, but Clare and Frank were very nice to us and gave us a lot of help during our visit. The house was very warm and a comfortable place to live.
What a great experience. The hosts are accommodating and welcoming and just plain nice people. Their place is wonderful and so well appointed-I'm afraid they've spoiled me for other AirBnB stays elsewhere. Will definitely stay here again and will highly recommend it to all my friends.
I am so happy to have found Clare & Franks place in North Wales. My mom and I stayed a long weekend there while I was searching for a place to live in the surrounding areas, and they made us feel SO welcome. Clare greeted us with treats and beverages, and went as far as to leave me the real estate section of the daily paper. She is such a genuine person. The carriage house is exactly as pictured, and has more than you will need to accomodate your stay, from condiments to games, medicines, hair spray, you name it... they had it. I would definately recommend staying "with" them if you have the chance.
About the Host, Clare & Frank
We are two native Philadelphians, a Mechanical Engineer/Handyman and a Finance & Operations Professional, who possess a good combination of "creativity and craftsmanship"
We have planned and completed numerous home improvements (large and small) at our North Wales home over the past 20+ years.
We like meeting new people and since we are "between jobs" we thought we'd try our hands at hospitality. We were happy to be awarded "Superhost" status recently by airbnb after just 6 months of hosting.
We've been very fortunate to host many great guests and we look forward to meeting and hosting many more!
