We had such a wonderful trip in Dalian! Linda&Christina offered us a cozy and tidy place. The location is convenient. We bought the fresh seafood at the morning market. The homemade seafood was the best!!! Christina is an amazing chief! We shared a lot interesting story with Linda. All in all, it was a unforgettable trip. Thanks a lot. Btw,J miss Heidou so much.
I can't thank you enough for their such a warm hospitality. The hosts took care of me all the time during my stay so I could spend the time with relaxed. Also, they prepared lunch for me. I can't forget the taste of the chicken soup. Everything was perfect and I had a great time talking with them. One of my purposes of visiting Dilian next time would be meeting them.
Christina and Linda are really fantastic hosts. Received the warm welcome from both of them and Heido. The house is really nice and location is quite good. We really had some good conversations and just felt at home. You don't have to worry about anything since they're quite caring and considerate. it's our first Airbnb experience and they definitely set a terrific start for us. I would recommend anyone who wishes to get the unique experience during the travelling to come to them. And surely I'm more than willing to pay a visit to them next time I'm in Dalian.
Beautiful house and excellent bed! The environment around is awesome. Greatest thanks to my three charming friends(Heidou is involved), for the pickup when I got lost and the delicious, memorizing breakfast which is like a fast food journey aroud the world! Sorry a lot for my putoff because of my martial training. You are the first person who know my meaning of my name. Wish you three good luck forever!
Linda and Christina were a joy from the moment we connected by email to the moment I left. Warm, thoughtful, and caring, they stayed up very late to meet me with fresh fruit when my flight was delayed, cooked me a scrumptious breakfast the next morning, and sent me off much feeling as though I had stayed with family. Heidou, their sweet dog, is also extremely well behaved, and part of the pleasure of staying with these two lovely people in their immaculate apartment.
I could not have found a better place and people to stay with in Dalian. Linda and Christina were amazing hosts. They helped me find my way around Dalian, spoke to taxi drivers in Chinese for me, rescued me when I was lost, and generally were so welcoming and easy to stay with. Their neighborhood has an excellent morning market just across the street and easy access to taxis and busses. I highly highly recommend them. Oh Yes, and Heido the dog was a pleasure to have around.
I cancelled at the last minute and wasn't able to attend Dalian. However, Linda and Christina were very welcoming and helpful with regard to my planning the trip and finding things to do in the area. I was really looking forward to seeing Dalian and travelling around in that area of China
