The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I was concerned about the past review which said the place wasn't clean when guests arrived, so I questioned Zoe in advance. She explained that an emergency had come up that time and she would be prepared for my arrival.
Very sweetly, Zoe waited up to greet me even though my plane was delayed and I didn't arrive until 12:30 pm. As she left, Zoe said she had been busy studying for finals and the place "isn't perfect."
As she left, Zoe pointed out that the chair with the guitar on it in the pictures is "a little broken so don't sit on it." Thus, the chair takes up a lot of space as an art object leaving only one chair that can to be used at the table. And there's no room to have two people sit at the dinner table since there was a side table shoved under the other side of the table.
The bed was clean and comfortable though it lacked a mattress cover and a top sheet. I slept really well because the area is quite quiet. I also felt safe going out at night in the neighborhood.
When I awoke the next morning, I discovered grit (mostly sand tracked in from the dirt parking lot by others) and black hair covering the hardwood floors throughout the apartment (except for the kitchen and bathroom, which had been thoroughly cleaned).
I texted Zoe to ask if she had a broom or vacuum, and she replied that she had a whisk broom and dust pan. Since I wasn't about to crawl around on my hands and knees, I went out to buy a broom. Zoe said later that she hadn't realized how much hair was everywhere. There were also dirty finger marks near the locks on the door.
While cool looking on the outside, the huge old bathtub is stained, which makes it look dirty even if it is clean so it's not as appealing to soak in as it might be otherwise. The shower curtain was ripped and falling off the rod.
The electric burners on the stove weren't working quite right and Zoe replied that she had contacted the landlord some days before about that. Since I couldn't figure out how to make sure they were completely turned off, not having the burners work correctly creates a potentially dangerous situation.
I chose to stay in a home rather than a hotel because I like to be able to prepare simple meals. The addition of one oven-safe Pyrex dish with a cover would be great. I've added some other suggestions to Zoe privately about how to anticipate and address guests' needs before they have to request something. Most of us really don't want to bother a host with endless requests. (Zoe was very responsive and sweet.)
I would be happy to stay there again if Zoe addresses these issues because the apartment is charmingly decorated and in a cool, safe town with a fun downtown area.
It was great to spend the weekend in Ferndale. Zoe gave us fantastic food recommendations that kept us well fed for the weekend. The apartment is in a quiet building, and in walking distance of the downtown area. I recommend Zoe's apartment and a getaway to Ferndale.
Zoe's place in Ferdnale was great - very cute and perfect location for our needs. It was really easy to arrange check in/out with Zoe and we had a great stay.
My girlfriend and I planned on staying here. When my girlfriend arrived at Zoe's apartment, the dishes were not done and there were clothes scattered around, but she said she had an emergency in the morning and was not able to clean up so that was okay, she was very polite about it. My girlfriend waited in the car while Zoe cleaned up for about an hour. She received a phone call from Zoe and she said that her mother was not comfortable with us having the apartment for the weekend so we were told that we were no longer welcome to stay although we had already checked in. Hopefully Zoe can get her act together before she plans on hosting another guest.
Nice and clean , easy to communicate.
Zoe and her boyfriend were wonderful and considerate guests and fun people as well. We were all working long days during her short stay but they are great and highly recommended guests.
Very cool girl! Booked at the last minute and was very flexible with arrangements and great communication!
Zoe and her boyfriend are both a charming couple. Respectable, kind and very friendly. It would be a pleasure to host them again and I wish Zoe beautiful journeys and adventures around the world.
Awesome guest! Beautiful voice! Very upbeat couple! Love!
