very well provided, aside from being clean and spacious. Private bathroom and separate floor gave us privacy; parking, utensils and refrigerator = convenience; while tv, DVDs and toothbrush cups were nice extra touches.
I booked this stay for my mother who was visiting for two weeks. It was true to the ad, pictures, reviews, everything. Smita and Marco were both gracious hosts, they were always accommodating, and helpful. The room is great, very spacious for it's size, and easily accessed, but with privacy, There's a very comfy bed, a clean and up to date bathroom. There's a fridge and microwave, there's a DVD player, high speed internet that's easily accessed through the WIFI. The neighborhood is quiet, full of families and neighbors walking their dogs. It's close to restaurants and shops, 19th street is just a short drive away. We highly recommend staying here, it's way better than a hotel.
Everything about the stay was very nice. The room is very clean and comfortable (and bigger than it appears in the photo). The hosts were very welcoming and made it very easy for me to arrive late in the evening. I definitely recommend this home stay.
I was ver impressed with the accommodation. Although I did not meet my hosts, I felt most welcomed before and during my 2 night stay. The location was easy to find and I enjoyed the quietness of the area. I highly recommend a stay at this delightful house.
I stayed 2 nights with my fiancée. Marco and Smitha made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Smitha was very helpful with directions from the airport and getting keys and checkin was smooth. The property was very clean and all set as described in the listing. Bed was very comfortable and and restroom and all facilities were in the room so no need to step out till we were actually going out. We had suggestions for places to eat and visit from Smitha as well as leaflets left as in the room. WiFi was great and we had no complaints at all. Room also had direct access to outside door so we could step in and out anytime without disturbing our hosts. And though we weren't driving, a safe space to park is provided.
Marco and Smita's home was wonderful! Very nice and quiet neighborhood. Just coming off of a cruise vacation, it was the perfect place to relax before our journey home back to Oregon!
Marco and Smita are lovely people to visit with. We were able to cook in their kitchen and there is a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. They let me put some food in the kitchen freezer overnight.
It was a very good experience to have with my first AirBnB stay.
