Melissa was a wonderful host and we both felt right at home. She made a point to be at the house when we arrived and checked in on us each day we stayed. We really enjoyed staying with such a loving, caring, and dynamic person like Melissa. The room itself was perfect for me and my Dad to sleep comfortably.

This was my very first airbnb experience and it was just great! I stayed with Melissa for over 7 weeks and she did everything to make me feel welcome and at home. Melissa is a very warm and amicable person and I loved staying with her and her cute dogs. The room and the bathroom are neat and clean and the bed is comfortable. Melissa's house is very charming and it is located in a nice neighborhood. You can get easily and quickly to UT or downtown by bus or bike. The next grocery store is only a 10 min walk away and every Sunday a very nice farmers market with local products takes place at the nearby Mueller park. I will definitely come back! Thank you so much for that great experience, Melissa!

I loved staying at Melissa's house! She was incredibly welcoming and accommodating, even though she was so busy working! I couldn't have asked for a better hostess. The bed was very comfortable and I had everything that I needed in her house. Thanks for a great stay :)

Fellow Airbnb users, look no further, just book now. I felt completely at home the moment I came into this gem. I hosted guests for over a year, yet Melissa taught me plenty on how to do it right! Wish I was staying longer, and would recommend anyone to have a stay with her and her lovely dogs. Lot of love in this house, you are going to be happy you booked if you so choose to.
