Ted was a wonderful host! The bed was super comfortable and the neighborhood is safe. Ted accommodated our late check in and was great with communication. We enjoyed talking with him at breakfast and he offered many suggestions on sights to see in the area. Want a comfy bed? Stay at Ted's.
Ted was a wonderful host. He and his friends were very knowledgeable about hiking, parks, and sightseeing around the area, which is very helpful if you're new to Salinas. He had great recommendations for trips, and we definitely got to see some things we didn't know about, like the Elephant seal beach! Thanks for the great hospitality, and the very comfortable bed!
Ted is really a nice and helpful host. We spend a good time together. My family is from China and language barrier, but we can still find interesting things to do together. We really enjoy the Mexican train dominos game, we love to share and cook food together. Ted is a fan of Mexican food and his taco is the best :). Besides, we have good hiking times and Ted is willing to help and give us nice tips for each hiking.
Moreover, the room is clean, nice and well equipped, you can move in without preparing anything.
We stayed at Ted's house for a night when we were travelling from San Fran to LA. We arrived late and found that Ted had made all the necessary arrangements for our comfortable stay. The bedroom was cozy and clean. He had installed an air mattress as advertised since there were three of us. This was quite comfortable too! He graciously offered breakfast in the morning and we had a long talk about the places we could visit on our way. He wrote down the names of many places we could visit and and thanks to him, we managed to see some of the most beautiful places on Highway 1 and around the Grand Canyon. :)
I would highly recommend staying at his place if you happen to be in Salinas any time! :)
Great host. A spacious bedroom and a comfortable bed, including a full tasty breakfast! Thanks Ted!
Highly recommended. Ted has been in the airbnb business for years and it shows by the quality of service and hospitality he provides to his guests. If you are new to airbnb, enjoy good conversation, and/or want to know more about the surrounding area, stay with Ted.
First time traveling with airbnb! Looking forward to my next adventure!
Ted has been a great host and love the world map of his guests. It's been an awesome night. Will def come next time!
Ted is a super nice and experienced host. He prepared everything we need, including breakfast. As a local, he recommended me great places to visit on west coast and went into great detail to map them out for me. He also let my mom help herself to make some Chinese dishes in the morning and joined us in breakfast.
He's interesting, generous and thoughtful. No wonder he had hosted so many guests in the past 3 years and has a big map with lots of pins on his guests's hometowns around the world.
Ted is a fantastic host! He is very nice, helpful, interesting and hospitable! We spoke a lot with him. He gave us very useful advices for visiting the area, especially for nature. His place is clean, nice and welcoming, and the bed is very comfortable. We also enjoyed the breakfast, especially fresh fruits. We would definitely recommend this place, and will come back next time! Thanks Ted!
We stayed with Ted in December, 2013. Ted was a wonderful and helpful host and I would highly recommend anyone to stay at his place. Ted provided us with some delicious seasonal fruits and a clean place to make our breakfast. Moreover, going above and beyond, Ted provided us with some tips and insights on the area and on things to do that really helped us enjoy our experience better.
P.S. This was our first experience with Airbnb and we would absolutely recommend the Airbnb experience over a private hotel or hostel experience.
