Colette was warm and friendly and very easy to deal with. Her house is lovely and very comfortable. It is is a gorgeous neighborhood, very safe, and very convenient. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance, as well as a train into the city.
My family was very happy with the house, and Colette was a great hostess. She was next door for the whole week, and was always available in case there were any problems (fortunately there weren't!). We are so grateful that she allowed us to stay in her lovely home.
Colette was a nice host and quite respondent. The house is located in a cute little town, really picturesque. It is a quiet neighbourhood. The house was as pictured. It felt really comfortable. There is a nice little garden at the back with lovely flowers, where we could enjoy breakfast in the morning.
Colette was super easy to work with, quick response and very accommodating. She was so pleasant to meet in person and show us the house and tell us local info.
We really enjoyed our stay at Colette's place! It's just a short walk to lovely downtown Haddonfield, which has great shops and restaurants. We spent several days in Philadelphia, which is only a 15 minute drive away -- very convenient, and we didn't have to pay for parking like we would have at a hotel, which saved us LOTS of cash. The house is clean and cozy, and the neighborhood is great. Also, Colette was very helpful and gracious. We stayed with a 10-yr-old, and we'd recommend this home to any traveling family.
This was our first AirBnB experience and it was a success! My family loved stayed at Colette's house--it was very comfortable and homey. Thank you Colette!
Great experience in a really beautiful town. This was the first time we have used airbnb and Colette went over and above what was expected. We had 2 very young children with us and they loved the whole week especially the small house play house she borrowed for our stay. We will absolutely contact her the next time in town.
What a wonderful place to stay! We have two small children and were looking for an affordable and comfortable place to stay while visiting family. Colette's house was "charming" as described, perfect for our family and Colette was a gracious host making sure that she was available with any questions. We will definitely keep her in mind if we travel to the area again!

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!
