Elinor was very welcoming and friendly. She also gave me clear instructions on how to find her apartment and how to use the keys to get into the building, etc. Her apartment was lovely and very neat and clean. My room was very comfortable and exactly what I needed. I had a very good experience in the home of a very nice person. Also, the grounds of the apartment were very nice and inviting.

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!
