Ken is a great host. The positive reviews on here are accurate. He goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. I would recommend his place to anyone staying in the area.
Ken was very attentive as I tried to make my first reservation with airbnb at his condo. The e-mail correspondence was constant for a while as I first asked for one range of nights to stay after our daughter's due date and then changed it because it was not clear that she would have the baby then. He then accommodated another range for another reason we needed to visit. His replies were prompt and very supportive as I went through the verification process.
His condo was as nice as the reviews said. The description "clean, comfortable and convenient" was apt. We immediately felt at home as we arrived finding a Keurig coffee dispenser in the kitchen and some snacks he had left. Our bedroom was bright and cheerful with a wide screen TV and we slept well in the comfortable bed both nights we were there. His son Tim was there after work and he welcomed us warmly. The condo complex is lovely and we felt very safe. I would definitely recommend Ken as a host for airbnb.
We didn't get a chance to meet Ken in person, but he was a thoughtful, friendly, and adaptable host by text, email, and phone. The whole condo was neat and clean and modern, and Ken left lots of food and drink for us. There are stairs that could be a challenge for older folks with too-heavy suitcases, but we would definitely go back.
Ken's place was clean, serene, and lovely. My wife nd I had just come from a visit to New York, so all of those qualities were a high priority, and Ken delivered.
The Bed. The Bed. The Bed. I will say more. The bed was so comfortable that it has spoiled me forever. My wife has taken up the hobby of pestering me to buy us a new mattress. (Not really, but you get my point.)
This was a one-night stop mid-way in our trip, and so the laundry facilities were welcome indeed. We were able to get a load in before moving on to Boston, which enabled us to keep our luggage light.
The one difficuty was had was getting our GPS, "Desdemona," to recognize Ken's address. His complex is brand new, and so Dezzi failed to find it. This happened just as we were leaving Niantic, Connecticut, so this little glitch caused my wife some anxiety. We had to call Ken--he picked up and was very pleasant--to get the nearest cross streets in order to find his place.
Now, we never met Ken, but his son checked in with us the morning we were leaving. He was cordial and polite.
The underlying theme of our on night stay at Ken's was a feeling of being refreshed and ready to take on Bean Town!
Thank you, again, Ken, for your hospitality.
Ken was a wonderful host! His place looked as advertised on the pictures. The location was perfect --- it was an easy drive to Downtown Hartford and very close to shopping and dining in all those great places along Berlin Turnpike. (Around the corner is Blue Lobster, which is in this year's top place to eat lobster in CT.) Ken and I got to talk stories too. I am so glad I got to stay in his house and met him. I highly recommend Ken's place!
Yes, everything was perfect. We are directionally challenging people and Ken waited for us with welcome and wine!
Hi; I'm Ken...I'm very friendly and easy to get along with. I generally see the humor in life and enjoy all it has to offer.
at this time in my life I'm seeking to do more traveling and would be interested in visiting Italy sometime in the near future. I love the warm climate in Sarasota, Florida and San Diego, California . I love going to new York city for a night on the town taking in a Broadway show and enjoying dining in a fine restaurant.
As for hosting your stay; you will find I am a very accommodating person who will make sure all of your needs have been accounted for. Having your newspaper and coffee ready will be my personal guarantee for you and your family.
