Yael....I am sorry we didn't get to chat much. Hope the conference was fulfilling. Election is looking good. Looks like the grassroots people are doing a great job of signing up voters. Take care.

Renee and Tony were great hosts! Both were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast every day was fantastic. We weren't there much but we definitely had plenty of privacy and interaction if we wanted it. The house is nice and the dog and cats were very cute! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean.

The hosts were open, friendly, helpful and accommodating. The home is in a quiet neighborhood just blocks from major highways connecting me to the many places I planned to visit. It was a great 'home base' for a 6-day visit to South Jersey.

The host provided me the breakfast I usually have at home. Both Tony and Renee are welcoming but also respect your privacy. Enjoyed the cats and the dog-they were also welcoming but were not pushy about affection. Very nice neighborhood for walking right out the door.

Renee was very welcoming upon our arrival, and offered tea and snacks while we sat down and became acquainted for a bit. Both she and husband Tony were delightful people, who we would have like to sit and visit with more during our stay, but our busy schedule prohibited that. We often left early and returned late. The room has its own AC, a double bed, a chair and dresser, as well as a small closet, and overlooks the garden in the backyard. The neighborhood is very safe and pleasant, parking is right in front on the street. There is great access to downtown Moorestown, as well as major roads (Chester Ave, Church St, Rte 38, I-295, etc.) Many fine restaurants are located within 5 miles or less. While perhaps not equivalent to many hotels, this accommodation was less than half the cost of most area hotels, and quite convenient, with very friendly hosts. A small dog and two cats were also friendly, but unobtrusive.

Renee User Profile

Middle aged married couple with musician son. I run my own consulting business and my husband is a professor. We have been world travelers and enjoy meeting new people. I was born in the United Kingdom and have lived and worked in Paris, London and Mexico City. We like travelling, music, our dogs, and just about anything "cultural". We are an LGBT friendly house.

I love to read anything by Indian authors and my husband is more classic in taste. We love old movies and come to think of it really good new movies - more Indies than blockbusters.

My life motto would be anything said by Ghandi and the Buddha.
