This was my first time using airbnb and it was great! Andre and Michelle were very kind and gave great advice on where to go while we were on our trip. We had privacy when we wanted but also nice company when they were around. It was a beautiful home and in a great area.
Andre and Michelle were like a new set of parents. I really enjoyed how they offered insight into their current lives as well as their past. We had some great discussions about compassion and the avatar project. Whenever they offered to help me out, it was always in a very pleasing way. Everything from me borrowing Thermo mugs for coffee and beach chairs to them offering me to join them for a musical. I can definitely recommend anyone to stay with them.
Andre and Michelle made my wife and I feel almost like family! Their home is beautiful and comfortable. The neighborhood is great. They are as friendly and open as they come. Always offering way more then necessary because that's just the way they are. If I'm ever back that way again, they're home will be my first stop!
PS.....The back yard is an oasis.
Five stars accommodation with a first class hosts! Andre and Michelle are very hospitable and care a great deal about their guests. They are well-versed in Tampa's affairs and things do--It was a treat being there. Their beautifully decorated house is located in the best neighborhood of South Tampa.
Ce n'était pas l’accommodation la plus luxueuse que nous ayons rencontrée dans notre séjour ( mais c'est difficile de faire mieux que certains qui proposent de véritables suites "mother in law" avec jacuzzi), mais c'est certainement l’accueil qui nous a laissé le souvenir le plus fort de notre voyage, avec un contraste passionnant entre Michelle, ancienne journaliste et écrivain, très vive, et André, artiste plein de sagesse! Les deux sont encore professionnellement occupés. C'était vraiment très difficile de nous arracher de ces conversations passionnantes!
Andre and Michelle were faultless hosts. They went quite far out of their way to help me during my stay, including picking me up from the airport on a flight that was 10 hours late! They provided me with lots of travel information and details of local attractions and amenities, and were always friendly. I would certainly recommend them to anyone.
Andre and Michelle are excellent hosts! They are easy to talk to and I felt welcome as soon as I arrived. Michelle drew me some maps of the area which saved me a lot of "lost" time. They also pointed out many interesting places to visit in the Tampa/St.Petersburg area. The house is kept very neat and clean. They also rearranged my room, before I arrived, so that I could bring a recliner into the room since back problems prevent me from sleeping in a bed.
I thoroughtly enjoyed my stay with Andre and Michelle, and if all goes well, will return to their home next year for another Florida vacation.
