The host canceled this reservation 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Unfortunately, I had family coming in so I needed the apartment she had booked. Cancellation was my last option so I had located and offered Kate alternate close accommodation but she declined, She wanted to find her own alternate place but was very appreciative of my efforts. She is a very accommodating and understanding guest .
We were very disappointed in this listing and did not stay despite the cost. Though the pictures were not exactly inaccurate, we found the entire space to be dark and dreary. The entrance to the space passes through the hosts back door and down a stairway to the apartment. The apartment itself does not have a lock, but our bedroom door did. Perhaps our expectations were too high for the price, but we found the accommodations to be unacceptable and could not imagine spending any time there.We arrived after a long drive and left immediately to get lunch. Our host suggested primarily fast food places and we walked about five blocks on a busy street before we found a suitable café. The apartment did not appear to us to be within reasonable walking distance of downtown Winnipeg's attractions. We do not understand the rave reviews that we read about this space.We found a hotel in downtown Winnipeg and were happy to spend the additional dollars to stay somewhere other than this listing
Too bad Susie, you were not completely honest with me. The place is not for everyone but 90% of people love it and others appreciate other aspects especially the affordable price. I was very accommodating to them yet they did not mention that I accepted their booking change from 3 nights down to 1 night charge and did not charge for the cancelled nights but I could have taken the full price or even the 50% fee Sussie offered me??? Susie you need to realize that if you were that that disappointed airbnb gives you the option of NOT taking the booking and paying ZERO . I would rather you been honest with me, cancelled and not said anything. . If you really read my reviews you would know I am very accommodating and would go the extra distance to please my guests. I know I can't please all the people all of the time but I try my best. Also, contrary to what you stated it is less then a 15 min walking distance to many locations. This is quite a reasonable walking distance for most people. Also many people love the 20 min walking distance down the pleasant river path to the Forks. One of our top attractions. Oh Well at least you feel better!
Silvio offered multiple opportunities enhance our visit. The accommodations were pleasant and affordable.
Silvio is a fantastic house. He made sure we had everything we needed and was very accommodating:)
My husband and I stayed with our two kids for six nights. It was great. The location is quiet, but close to everything you need. Silvio was very welcoming, and gave us helpful suggestions for things to check out. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and made a perfect home-away-from-home. We all slept just as well here as we do in our own beds - even the kids, which is saying something. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.
The apartment was clean, simple and just what we needed. It was great to have a well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable. The location was perfect. It was a bit noisy when the group renting the upstairs was home, but not a big deal. Overall, an excellent experience and definitely recommended.
Thanks for being a great host. House was very close to multiple bus stops. Silvio was easy to reach, and was quick to come and fix our minor issue. Thanks!! GO USA!!

About the Host, Silvio With Domenic
I am Canadian, born in Belgium to Italian parents from Abruzzi Italia. I am 60 years old, an electrical engineer now retired with 4 children and 5 grandchildren. I have many relatives in Rome and Abruzzi. I go to Italy every 2 years, usually in August, for the festivals and to visit family. I have one uncle in Rome who in 2014 May was 105 years old whom I like to see when I am there.
Mexico is my second home. Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta are my main destinations. I spend one month there in Nov and 1 month in March. Most of my time is spent mainly in Mazatlan, where I own a condo, to play tennis and then about 5 days in Puerto Vallarta to Salsa dance. It is the dolce Vita ( sweet life) ,sunny and day time temps of abouut +28.
I enjoy hosting on Airbnb mainly because I like meeting new people and having people come see me from around the world. I use Airbnb whenever I can for my visits around the world because it is so affordable and they have very interesting and extremely helpful hosts. I also like to play tennis, hockey, bike, walk especially in Rome, dance especially latin dancing and cook Italian foods.
This is a picture of me with my oldest son Domenic, when we were at my oldest daughter Maria's wedding day in 2011. Dom and his wife Jessica live close by and help with my airbnb and also own the small RV.
