Ivan and his wife Debbie made me feel at home right from the get go. Staying with them was more like visiting an old friend. The backyard oasis complete with lighted waterfall was a nice touch that Debbie was rightfully proud of!
This house is amazing! It's in the forest and I enjoyed a wonderful place with lots of lovely animals!
Just the most endearing and welcoming family I've ever had the experience of living with. They've the most cozy and beautiful house! The pets are just delightful! I would love every opportunity to stay at this house!
Ivan was an amazing host with such great spirit. He has an great home that is very warm and welcoming. I recommend a stay with him.
Everything went very well. Hosts were very accommodating and friendly. Hard to beat the price. Listing was as advertised. I was given the option to leave my car over there an extra night as I was meeting someone there and staying in richmond the following night. Couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience given the circumstances. Would stay again.
All-around great stay. Courteous hosts. If you're lucky, Willie Nelson (their cat) will curl up next to you at night :)
Confirmamos sobre el tiempo e Ivan estuvo pendiente de nuestra llegada, aunque no estaba en la casa, nos recibio su esposa Debra,quien fue muy especialo y amable. La casa es hermosa tienen un pequeño paraiso en el patio, un perro y dos gatos hermosos! La habitacion muy confortable y llegamos facil con las indicaciones que nos dieron. El barrio tiene mucha naturaleza alrededor y el unico ruido es el canto de los pajaros. La pasamos muy bien con ellos.
About the Host, Ivan
I'm an out-going, personable, single Dad who runs his own video production group in Richmond, Va. I stay busy with work and athletics (soccer on weekends & cycling during the week) and the home gym a few times a week.
Since you're a traveler , I'll share with you that during slow downs in my schedule I hit the road to Europe, South America and across the US. Favs include, but not limited to; New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Miami, Austin, San Fran and Seattle. When I travel i believe in doing it the way Christopher Columbus did...figure it out when you get there. Except now there's all kinds of places to stay like Airbnb! The people are usually helpful to travelers looking to learn about their towns. Some of my favorite European spots are Faro, Portugal, Paris, Italy in general, Stockholm and Mallorca.
So a little bit about the guest I'd like to host. Someone who isn't loud or stays up too late. Is sociable but has their own agenda and time to keep. A professional person who respects the place of others but is always up for good conversation if they feel compelled or simply would like to converse after a long day from work...if solitude is what you're looking for there's a 42" flat screen to lose yourself in or a home gym in the basement to work off the stress form the workday.
Travelers are always welcomed!
