Really enjoyed my stay. The location was perfect for my needs, and it was very quiet. Bed was super comfortable. Shower was great. The place was immaculate. Linda was the perfect host, communications were flawless and the accommodations right down to room allocated in the refrigerator was very sweet.

I booked very spontaneously in the evening and could only arrive at 11 pm. Linda waited up for me and was the best host, eventhough she had been up since 5 am. She is wonderful. Organized, sympathic, loving, interesting, beautiful and a lot of fun as well. Not just staying at her house is "the whole package" but she as a person as well. The place is just like the pictures, the waterpressure in the shower is great and everything is Cody and clean. I can't wait to come back and spend more Time with her. And I loved her dog

We liked the proximity to Interstate Hwys and convenience to stores, gas stations, and restaurants. Be aware that Linda has a friendly but energetic dog. Could be a trip hazard to the elderly.

Super nice host and very accommodating. Would definitely stay again if in the area. I attended a conference a short distance from Linda's house so it was perfect for my needs. And this was my first time using Airbnb!! Very positive experience.

This was exactly what I expected from the pictures, reviews, and the information about Linda. Linda was really great in showing me the ropes when I got there. It's a clean comfortable home to stay in and I will come back when I'm in need of a place to stay when I'm back in Howell!

This was my first Airbnb stay. Linda made me feel right at home as soon as I checked in. She showed me right to my bedroom and then gave me a quick tour. She had coffee for the morning, filtered water, and a place for me in the fridge. The bed was very comfortable. The shower was hot and had great water pressure. Linda has thought of every detail. This was a great first airbnb experience!
