The room was clean and appeared as described. Melinda was very friendly and accomodating. The neighborhood is safe and walkable, close to the airport and to a shopping center for groceries and more. Be aware that plane overflights can be loud, but are typically only in daylight hours.
Melinda is a nice hostess. She was very attentive all the time and it was very easy to communicate with her. Everything was ready and clean when I arrived.
The house is in a nice neighbourhood, very close to the airport.
We found the location very convenient. As others have mentioned, it is on one of the airport flight paths, but I was aware of this and it didn't really bother me. The listing was reasonably priced compared to hotels near the same area. While our schedules did not coincide much, we found Melinda to be a pleasant host.
Melinda is the perfect host. I found my room clean and neat with light, internet hookup, plenty of plugs for all of my computer and phone needs. Private bath had beautiful mexican tile. Full kitchen, dining (both informal and formal), large living room and very centrally located. It was actually about 6 blocks from where I first moved to back in 1987. My trip from Tuesday evening to Saturday morning was filled as it was more of a work trip than pleasure. So, I did not spend much time there. When I left there were homemade peanut butter cookies that tasted yummy that I enjoyed with my coffee before I left.
