Absolutely no smoking.
Elinor is a wonderful woman. My husband and I had a great time staying there. The cats are adorable too!
My husband & I found Elinor to be a gracious and accommodating host, and her 2 cats (especially the more outgoing "Diego") to add to the charm of our experience!
The apartment itself was pleasant and comfortable, and we had all the peace & quiet we needed for our two good nights' sleep. This enabled us to sustain our full schedule of planned activities, making for a fun & memorable weekend get-away.
All in all, a great "maiden voyage" with airbnb!
