As a return guest at Tobi's I can say that everything was just as delightful this time as it was the last. A comfortable apartment in a beautiful setting. We look forward to visiting again sometime.
This was a wonderful clean and comfortable place to stay. Close to town, but still outside of the city, It became home real quick and I was sad to leave in the end. Thanks Tobi!
Moden photography can create wrong impressions. May be we did not ask the right questions, but this is a basement apartment and that should have been specified in the description. While hosts are welcoming and even helped us with luggage, the property did not meet our expectations. Basic things such as toaster and pans were missing in the kitchen - so not fully equipped. Owners gave us a large pan but they did not have a toaster. Room and bathroom was clean but refrigerator was not. THere was meat in the freeze which is a turn off for vegetarians. There is no laundry machine. For same price one could stay at country inns and suites and get free breakfast. Television screen has cracks though owners said it is working. We did not use it anyways because there is no cable (which is as stated in the description).
It is unfortunate that this guest had issues with our apartment that have never been a problem in the 14 months we have been on AirBnB. We have had a wonderful experience meeting and hosting people from all over the world. Most of the concerns raised in the review could have been avoided had they clearly read the listing, looked more carefully at all the photos, asked questions, and communicated with us while here. The photos were taken by an AirBnB professional and clearly show our garden apartment entryway. The listing clearly indicates that we do not provide laundry nor cable. We have never had an issue about a lack of toaster and thought we had a pot, however we have since purchased both for the apartment. The 42" plasma television IS cracked (our youngest son played wii without remembering his wrist strap!), but fully functional for DVD playing and has never been an issue in the past, you don't see the crack when the TV is on. The refrigerator was essentially empty and clean. The meat has been removed from the freezer. It was there as overflow as this is our home and our extra refigerator/freezer when needed. Perhaps some people would be best served by reserving a traditional hotel.
A nice, quiet and clean spot just a few miles outside of town. We enjoyed our stay, slept well, and were pleased by the morning kureg!
This was perfect for our 4 person family. We have a teenage son and daughter and Tobi was open to us bringing along an airbed so they wouldn't have to share a futon. The place is very clean and fresh. Tobi was easy to communicate with and quick to reply. The property backs up to a wooded area so it was serene and quiet - complete with bird feeders.
Tobi's place was clean and quiet and very comfortable. She and her husband were both very friendly and helpful and made our stay great. The milk and orange juice and fruit in the refrigerator was a very nice touch!
Great spot to get away. Short proximity to beautiful town of Ithaca.
Everything was as advertised, a nice little apartment outside Ithaca. The property is very conveniently located for trips around the area (wineries, hiking, and Ithaca). Tobi was very welcoming and hospitable, even leaving fresh juice, milk and fruits in the fridge. She was also prompt and communicative throughout the entire process. We were completely satisfied with our stay.
This property was just as described. Very comfortable and clean. Lots The oweners left fruit, juice and milk for us in the fridge and it was appreciated in the morning.
I would highly recommend Tobi's place to anyone staying in Ithaca. The unit matched the descriptions exactly, and Tobi even left some delicious, complimentary local foods in the fridge for us to snack on! It is convenient to town but also far enough outside that we had crystal clear views of the stars. Tobi was very prompt responsive with communications and a delight to deal with. We're already planning our next trip back to Ithaca!
