The room was just like it appeared in the photo. Teresa was responsive to my emails and she was clearly an experienced AirBNB host. She had everything well organized and their apartment was clean and easy enough to get to.
Very nice place to stay, quiet and comfortable! Teresa was flexible when I got delayed and arrived very late. Soft and comfortable bed. Convenient buses made getting to the Metro fairly easy too. I would definitely stay here again.
Theresa et Lionel ont été très accueillants. La chambre est spacieuse et le lit confortable. Ils nous ont également donné plein de renseignements sur les transports et la ville. Nous recommandons cet endroit sans hésiter.
Teresa was very gracious and accommodating. This was our experience with Air BnB and we were very comfortable with her and the facilities.
Everything was great. I appreciate all the helpful information, hospitality, and availability you guys provided. Best of luck with everything in your lives and thanks again for everything
Teresa and Lionel were wonderful hosts. Room was exactly as pictured. It had its own A/C unit, which was great. Location is convenient and quiet. Restaurant recommendation was spot-on.
The host made me feel very welcome. The description is accurate. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet - absolutely no traffic noise - allowing for a peaceful and deep sleep!

About the Host, Teresa
Our first Airbnb experience was as guest's in Brooklyn in 2009 and loved it!
We relocated to Arlington, VA after living in France, and I now teach French.
I love to travel (Italy, Spain, England,Switzerland, Holland, Thailand, Singapore, Mexico, almost all central America, Peru...) and everything that goes with it (meeting new people, new places, new food...). When I can't pick up my bags, I'll pick up a good book or listen to groovy music.
We love to hear good stories and tell some of our own.
'Everyone knew it was impossible. Then came an idiot who did not know. He did it'
(it's translated from French but still makes sense no?!)
