  • "We believe in free speech, transparency, and clear communication. Our community is built on trust, and trust comes from honest conversation. Therefore, we ask for reviews that are genuine, clear, and helpful to both the review’s recipient and the wider Airbnb community."

    The stay itself was great! I just didn't like the dishonest and confusing communications with the host and her family.

    -Before arriving I talked to the host. After arriving, I needed to talk to the host's parents because the host lives outside U.S. This is fine.
    -One of the parents is the owner of the house and barely speaks English.
    -Email communication with the host was not great. The host didn't explain much and responses were curt. At least, the host apologized to me: " I apologize for the miscommunication and trouble" after I brought up the miscommunication issue.
    -I didn't break any tenant agreements, but the host and the host's parents flipped the table and unilaterally changed the agreement the next day.
    -They told me untruthful facts to make me comply to them, which I didn't agree to.
    -The host lied to me the host's mother didn't know about a certain thing, which was clearly written in the agreement form and I discussed about it with her directly in person.
    -The host's mother told me I can pay the certain fee by cash a week after the day we made the agreement. The next day, the host told me to pay now (not a week after) or she will start eviction process. I told the host (who lives outside the US) that's not aligned with the agreement and unreasonable. They the host's lie described above happened.
    -Later on the phone, the host's father admitted the host's mother actually knew about it but she made a mistake. I was disgusted with their lying to me.
    -The host's father told me the host was angry about the communication with me saying I was whining. I corrected him and told him the host is unprofessional because I complained to the host about miscommunication with the host and the host made an apology to me.
    -Entire time, I need to have the three way communication to make one thing straight. This is because 1) the actual owner I talked to doesn't speak English well, 2) the actual host lives in Canada so communication was email or phone, and therefore 3) communication was between the host and the owner and me.

    -Other than communication issues, the stay and the other tenants were great.
    -Most people wouldn't need to worry about what I pointed out here, but I just saw the nasty aspect of communication and agreement with the host and her family.
    -Finally, I didn't break any agreements. They tried to change it without my consent. The credential is that the other four tenants and me were getting along well and they didn't like what happened to me when I told them about this.

  • I was here for almost a month and Debby was very helpful and responsive. She responds quickly to my emails and was very informative. She is very nice and was very helpful in answering all the questions in regards to the area and more.

    This house is located in a great location. It is next to Microsoft, two highway exits, and bunch of shops. The house is very clean and cozy. The neighbors seem to be very quiet and there is a park one block away. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a place to stay when visiting.

  • Very clean room. Nice house and yard. Close to everything (including the highway). The check-in was easier than anywhere since it's based on access codes (no need to meet up with the owner at an agreed time). And she actually provides the breakfast part of the B&B!!! I look forward to staying with Debby again.

About
I am currently retired from government job in Canada. We have met a lot of different people from all over the world for the past 10 years in our private rental properties. Me and Amy enjoy sharing their stories and have a tea time or some red wine with our tenants in the summer night. I will be communicating with potential tenants interested in reserving the rooms using this account.
