Response from Laura:
I'm sorry if I offended with my review; I was simply stating what was my experience. My understanding was that Lauren was out of town during my visit, so didn't know I could contact her or that there was a building manager who could have been contacted. Having that info would certainly have made a difference. And for the record, I did a fair amount of walking the neighborhood, and yes it is quite beautiful; I guess I just like to have a coffee place (like Farley's on 18th) nearby and didn't come across such in my walks. I've had very good luck in the past with airbnb places, and I know I'm a good guest, so I think this was just not the best match-up.
