Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 7 of us stayed at "The Residence" for NCAA opening weekend and everyone raved about the place. Plenty of room for everyone and Anne Nice is great caretaker to work with. Would stay again!!

  • We enjoyed our stay. We easily fit all 7 of us. Anne is the best. She was available and accommodating. She was so helpful!
    My one complaint is that Michael quoted us one price and charged another, higher price. When I emailed to ask him to refund the difference, I received no response.

  • Fantastic penthouse floor in a beautiful mansion, right in a wonderful area in Buffalo--walking distances to cool restaurants, bars, etc., and in a quiet, and beautiful neighborhood. Easy parking, too!

    The house itself is beautiful, dripping with character and charm, and was plenty spacious for our party. We loved staying there, and would do so again in a heartbeat.

    Thanks Michael, for having us! Hope to visit Buffalo again soon!

  • We stayed in the penthouse for 2 nights on a boys weekend for the Buffalo Bills game. The house was perfect to receive 6 people, everything was spotless clean and all the necessary amenities were there. Anne prepared all the beds and the air mattress for us before our arrival so everything was ready when we got to Buffalo. Thank you!

  • Myself and 8 of my friends stayed here for the weekend when we were in town for a wedding. The space was perfect for our big group! Ann was more than accommodating to all of our needs. The apartment was stocked with towels, sheets and pillows and toiletries....there was even a bottle of wine and water in the fridge for us! We all enjoyed our stay and it was in the perfect location. Our only complaint was the water pressure and because of it being an old house, the temperature and pressure is affected by what everyone else in the building is doing so we did have some cold showers. But that was all minor to us and overall we made some wonderful memories and was so thankful to be able to stay here! Thank you for everything!!

    Response from Michael:

    Lauren and her large group were a pleasure to host, considerate of house rules and left the place clean. It is unfortunate that they needed 9 back to back showers in the morning as everyone in the house leaves for work around 8 AM, affecting overall water pressure and that we have a standard 55 gallon water heater. I have since curbed occupancy to 8 people and suggested to Anne to instruct folks as to when to avoid this small and avoidable inconvenience. Lauren, thanks again for your business and please feel free to stay with us again. You are always welcome.

  • We had the opportunity to stay at the delightful apartment of Michael Olanoff. The place was spacious and accommodated five women without anyone feeling cramped or in any way hampered in movement. Ann went out of her way to welcome us going so far as to leave us a bottle of wine in the fridge and little amenities in the bathroom. The apartment is lovely, well located and very reasonably priced. We recommend it to any traveler to the Buffalo area.

  • We stayed the weekend in this lovely penthouse!! There were 8 of us in total and we had plenty of space, the home is nicely located near restaurants and near the peace bridge making it easy access from the border! Anne was very friendly and helpful! Thanks to you we had ag reat weekend with our friends!! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!! Enjoy as we did!

  • What a lovely stay!! It not for a second felt like i am staying at a stranger's house! It was warm, cozy and most importantly homely! Anne, the caretaker is amazing and did an excellent job with keeping the place nice and tidy! This was my first stay with airbnb so i had no idea what to expect and especially what to pack! So i took everything with that i would beed on my short 2 days stay but once i'm there i did not have to unpack any of my things that i carried as they provided everything, starting with tooth paste, brush to kitchen utensils! The location was amazing! Pretty much everything was a walking distance and they had excellent restaurants, lounges, stores! It was sad that i was only there for 2 nights and was out pretty much all day and couldn't enjoy and explore the house as much as i would like to, but i am certain to go back and live there again when i go visit buffalo!

  • My family had a very nice stay in the house. The house is big, well furnished and in a nice neighborhood.
    What really makes the stay enjoyable is the fact that Anne is so nice, so helpful, and so willing to make the stay a success. Many thanks go to her in particular.
    Michael was helpful and very responsive to all our requests, so we highly recommend staying in this place.
    One suggestion: there was a room without A/C, this would be a nice addition.

    Response from Michael:

    The kitchen was the room without A/C..We remedied the problem immediately following this reveiw..Thank you Pierre for the kind words..come back soon.
