Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Mary's home is lovely and offers lots of places to relax, including a wonderful deck which I took advantage of in the short time I had to enjoy it. We were there just long enough to get ready to go to my 50th college reunion dinner in West Chester. Mary greeted us warmly, opened her entire house to us, and we briefly shared our respective backgrounds and interests, noting that we share a love of cats and outdoor activities, especially hiking. We felt very welcomed and would recommend Mary's place for others.

  • Great host!

    June 2013
  • We stayed for 1 night in Mary's home in a beautiful and comfortable room with private bathroom and off-street parking. Her home is in a lovely neighborhood, and she was very friendly and hospitable. It was perfect for our needs, and we'd certainly stay there again.

  • We stayed 4 nights at Mary's lovely, comfortable home. The house was very clean and spacious. We loved sitting on the deck and reading. It was so convenient to all the things we wanted to do in the area, as well as, our one day in Philly. Mary was a great hostess and she had home-made granola for us and plenty of fruit, bagels, Eng. muffins and hard boiled eggs. She printed out a welcoming sheet of information about the area sights and local restaurants, etc., which was very helpful. Enjoyed the 2 very lovable cats. We didn't see much of the 2 lodgers. We would definitely come back again!

  • We had a very comfortable stay at Mary’s beautiful home. Mary was very helpful, responds quickly for all our mails and gave good suggestions for restaurants. She was also flexible on the check-in/check-out timings. The house is very clean, spacious, located in a quiet neighborhood. The house is very close to the Kennett square restaurants and Longwood gardens. We would definitely visit Kennett Square again and Mary’s place will be our choice of stay.

  • I had a very comfortable two nights in Mary's lovely home. The house is very clean, the bed is comfy, and the company was great. I was easily able to park my car on the street. The house is very close to the downtown area of Kennett Square.
    Mary responded to my inquiry right away, and was flexible and available to meet me when I arrived. I felt like I could both have enough peace and quiet (and wifi) to do my work (I was there on a research trip) and also friendly, low-key conversation with Mary and her two lodgers. Would stay again!

  • Awesome! Such a warm, comfortable environment with a great hostess and wonderful other guests. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to get back to that area again. The accomodations were great and very spacious. This was our first stay in an airbnb property and we will definitely do it again. We didn't think breakfast was included, but every morning Mary had coffee, muffins and fruit....and fun conversation! Thanks, Mary and girls for a wonderul time.
