keep a house clean and tidy
There was no one in the house and no answer at the door when we first arrived. We tried calling but there was no answer on the phone either. An hour and a half after the time I'd told Mari we would be arriving, someone whom I can only assume to be her daughter arrived and showed us in. We never met Mari or saw anyone from the host family again.
Otherwise the place was fine. Not spotless but acceptable and the neighbourhood was pleasant enough. It was easy to get transport links into NYC and cheap as well. The only problem with the location was getting to the airport early in the morning. We ended up having to get a taxi, which was very expensive, so I'd recommend taking later flights if staying here.
The room/house was great, especially for the price. Everything was very clean and orderly, with the exception of the bathtub. Check in/out was flexible and easy. Parking was cheap, though a bit confusing.
The only real downside to the place would be the communication. We did not hear from the host at all. However, when we showed up everything was ready for us, and they took us to the room within minutes. The main thing would be to go into the place expecting to not hear from host until you get there. (This was also our first airbnb experience, so maybe this is more of the norm?)
The house was good value for price, located in another city but with good connections to new york if you can use public transport (taxes are expensive as hell because of tolls). I never saw Mari and communication was sporadic at best, but her daughters help a lot, we received key on arrival and everything went ok!
Attention, le logement ne resemble pas du tout aux photos. De plus Mari n'existe pas. Et c'est très loin du centre de NYC
We had a very good experience with Mari and her family. They were really accommodating of our late arrival (due to a problem with our bus that completely crushed the schedule of our first day in NYC) and our room was just as described. The other guest were also really friendly and the house was overall really nice and clean. Our room was only slightly cold, but nothing really uncomfortable. Arriving to Mari’s house was easy and the neighborhood was really nice and peaceful.
We felt neither comfortable, safe, nor clean in this place! First of all, the host was not there to meet us, and the neighbor did not expect us. The kitchen was filthy, with a sink full of dirty dishes under the broken kitchen faucet, trash overflowing from the can, and fruit rotting on the counter. Our room was tiny, with no storage space for our anticipated six month stay, and we suspect the sheets had not been washed prior to our arrival. We did not sleep well on the uncomfortable bed, partly because the six other guests were loud until late in the evening, and partly because the front door was purposely left unlocked at all times, which had us worrying. We booked the room for a month, but checked out after one night.
this review should be disregarded because my house is always clean and ether me or someone from my family is here to make our guest welcome. Her room was clean and sheets and towels were fresh.
We has other guest at home that were leaving next morning and I apologized for mess and at the same time it was clean. they cancelled their stay and money was reimbursed that same night.
