My motto: happiness is success.
I spend a lot of time working on relationships and how to improve them. When I'm not doing that, I love cooking. And as a former journalist, I still have a fascination with sports.
Ben and his friend rented my flat while up here working a couple of days at UC (nearby) as part of their Masters program. It was a relatively quick trip and they made it feel even more so: they arrived in the evening and were easy to coordinate w/, were happy with the place, had courses all day and basically needed a comfortable local place to sleep in between.
After they left it was almost as if nobody had been here- clean, respectful of house rules, self sufficient, and left a nice note and email/text indicating that they were as pleased with their stay.
... I'd be happy to host again in the future a and if you have the opportunity to I'd definitely recommend having Ben as a guest in your home. Great overall experience.
Ben was a great guest. Although I never met him in person we had a great back and forth communication well before, during, and after his visit to SF. Ben is a fellow UCLA Bruin and as someone that once lived there as well, I might be a very biased reviewer! If Ben comes knocking, I would highly consider his stay as he is timely, neat, and very considerate.
Ben's second stay was just as pleasant and easy as his first, welcome back any time.
Ben's an easy, quiet, considerate guest, welcome back any time.
