Interaction with Guests
I am available to give recommendations on places to go and places to eat; other than that I will pretty much let you do your own thing!
PATCO train to Phila. is 6 blocks away.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING, NO DRUGS, NO ALCOHOL!
This is a quiet neighborhood, so no loud music or gatherings after 10pm. Also, you must park your car in the driveway overnight, as there is an ordinance about overnight street parking.
Located on a quiet residential, tree-lined street, I had a good stay at this charming location in Haddonfield. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like a baby! The place was very clean and comfortable. The only thing that would have been better is if there was a private attached bathroom, but if that's not important to you then this is a great place to stay.
Everything was totally perfect. Really nice and clean room, great environment/location, really nice people
For a newbee to Airbnb, this was great! Colette was an excellent host! I recently moved to the area and this is exactly what I needed to get started off right. The house and the neighborhood were perfect-- very clean and quiet. I am also very appreciative of the help/advice while trying to figure out a new area. Thank you, again!
Colette was an awesome host! Her house is adorable, very charming, just like the whole neighborhood with the small shops and nice restaurants. The house is very clean and organized, also very well located and safe. She was always very helpful and kind. It was a perfect stay! Thank you so much for everything Colette! Wish you the best!!
My stay here was absolutely awesome! As a medical student I needed to be up very early, stayed at work very late, and being comfortable was paramount. Colette left no stone unturned to ensure that I had everything I needed. Frankly, her home became my home for the several weeks I was there. Also, Haddonfield is a beautiful, clean, pleasant town and I really grew to like it very much. Colette also helped me figure out the best ways to get around the area, which included spending several days in Philadelphia (just a 20 minute train ride) and a weekend traveling to New York. I don't know if and when I'll be back in South New Jersey, but I hope that there will be a room available in her home because it was an unforgettable experience.
It's walking distance to downtown Haddonfield, the train station, multiple shops and restaurants. It's also a very short drive from major shopping centers, grocery stores and malls.
If you're going to be in the area and need a place to stay, do yourself a favor and check this place out.
Colette's home is charming, beautiful, and located in a wonderful part of town! She was a very attentive and friendly host who always tried to ensure that we were comfortable. We will definitely stay here in the future !!!

About the Host, Colette
I am very outgoing and friendly. I enjoy meeting new people, traveling to new places and learning about other cultures. I love to cook with friends, go to wine tastings, gardening, enjoying the outdoors: kayaking, cycling,the beach. I love live music, art, photography, and yoga. I lived in NYC for nearly 10 years and I enjoy visiting for a day or two. Paris, Firenze and Santa Barbara are a few of my favorite destinations... still lots more places to visit!
After having recently finished a 2 1/2 week tour in Europe, where 90% of my accommodations were airbnb properties, I have a new appreciation for what it's like to be the guest!
At the moment, we are a small family living here, some of us in college, some of us in kindergarten!
