We would gladly stay at Miguel's house again. It was clean, well cared for, clearly someone's home. The cost was reasonable compared to a hotel. Miguel was as communicative as we needed. He provided breakfast bagels for the first day. The wireless internet worked well. Everything was fine. No problem/complaints at all. Recommended!
The reservation was canceled 84 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This was our second stay in this beautiful house. Everything was perfectly clean and cozy and ready for us when we arrived. Miguel stored some coffee, milk, orange juice, bagels and cream cheese in the fridge so we didn't have to care right away with shopping.
During the stay he offered his help several times if anything was needed.
When we tried to contact him, he responded as soon as possible and always in a timely and friendly manner.
We definitely would stay here again. Very pleasant!

Miguel was the model host - his home was warm and welcoming during our experiment at Cornell. My team was running shifts, so we had people sleeping at all hours, and he never disturbed us. He went the extra mile by shoveling the driveway after a snowstorm - a great help for us as we were all exhausted. I would definitely stay here for our next beamtime.
