Ms. Mercedes made us so feel comfortable, she even provided breakfast and champagne. Unfortunately, the weather was not convince to explore Portsmouth's neighborhood but we're def coming back. Overall, it was a great pleasure to get to know Mis. Mercedes.

Mercedes home was steller, it was in the perfect location of portsmouth. Mercedes and her husband were excellent hosts, they have a cute cat (im not a cat fan but loved him!!!), the room and bathroom were clean and tiddy. But if you are older or not in the best shape do make sure you can climb two flights of stairs (not a problem if you dont mind it!!!)

We enjoyed a delightful stay at this Airbnb in downtown historic Portsmouth, Virginia. The separate, very private, comfortable room was very large with a high ceiling, exquisite décor, and numerous windows offering rooftop views. Our exceptional experience here was especially due to the very welcoming hosts Mercedes and Alan. They were very knowledgeable of the Portsmouth/Norfolk area and could make detailed recommendations as to where to go. They bent over backwards to accommodate us. While we came as Airbnb guests, we left as friends. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. It truly was a home away from home.

My wife and I felt very welcomed on our first Airbnb experience! Mercedes has a lovely place in the heart of downtown Portsmouth. The accomidations were very nice, with lots of natural light, calming aromas and a comfortable bed. We were given outstanding recommendations on places to visit, sites to see and restaurants around town. We highly recommend the area and a stay with the Cook's!

Location is great. Walking distance from the Elizabeth River Ferry and minutes away from the expressway. Mercedes was a great host by making us feel like at home.

Mercedes' place is gorgeous! The room is very large, beautiful and comfortable. Mattress is soft and great for a good night sleep. The place is located in the main street of Portsmouth so it's full of restaurants and places to discover. It's a little magical town. Mercedes and his family were very nice and helpfull. They took me to the supermarket and to the bus stop because It was very late when I had to catch It. Thank you very much for being so sweet! I recommend this place 100%. You will have an amazing time in Portsmouth and will enjoy staying here. Mercedes is the greatest host ever.
