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!
My family needed a place to stay for several weeks badly and Colette opened up her home and made a difficult situation very welcoming and better. Not only was she a gracious host, but her neighbors welcome you in with charm and margaritas! I recommend anyone to stay with Colette and her great home in Haddonfield! Walk to town to get coffee in the am, what a great place to stay.
After my New York experience, this was a breath of fresh air! Colette meet us at the house and let us check in early. The house is very nicely kept and is very clean. It is decorated with such personal touch that you feel so much at home here. We were at Colette's house for 2 nights but it was the most comfortable part of our trip. Colette provided us with a lot of good tourist information and pamphlets. It was much appreciated. I found the house to be very cozy and host to be very kind. Parking is free...which is awesome! Philadephia is only 20 mins by train and its only $5.75 both ways, if you don't wish to take your car around. Otherwise finding a parking can be a challenge and expensive.
Colette's house was just perfect for our family visit to South Jersey. It is a charming, intimate house with gorgeous flower gardens in the back hard. Everything we needed was right there, including good WiFi. It is within walking distance of downtown Haddonfield. There is a top notch coffee shop Just two blocks away - Jersey Java. And one of our favorite sandwich places is just down the road - The Bread Board Plus. There are some nearby trails for joggers interested in a good run. Colette checked in with us a couple of times to make sure everything was good. We hope to stay here again on our return visits.
Colette was an excellent hostess with a very well appointed 2 bedroom house with both a front and back porch. She helped with menues from local reataurants and maps of the area and Philadelphia. Commutting to the city was fairly easy and not too bad even in rush hour.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
Colette was always accessible for questions; she was kind to give her entire home to my family that were visiting from outside the country. The living room and kitchen area are spacious. There's free Wi-Fi. The home is truly historic in the true sense of the word. Its in Haddonfield, one of the best suburbs of New Jersey, and very accessible to the high-speed line to Philly, and also close to downtown Haddonfield that is full of coffee shops, restaurants and other interesting stores for an evening stroll.
