I am small business owner who splits time between NYC's East Village, Seattle (where I'm from) and New Orleans.
Siv was a good communicator and very friendly. Most guests have left the apartment cleaner. There were a few dirty dishes and a few stains on the bedroom carpet and pillow cases. Nothing a little soap and stain remover couldn't take care of. I have a maid clean the apartment after each guest so it wasn't a big deal for me. I'd definitely have her back.
Siv and her companion were wonderful guests. They were punctual, very friendly, and considerate. They were very independent and self sufficient. They were very easy guests and wonderful people to have.
Siv and Sam were very flexible and easy to communicate with. We had no problems at all during their extended stay and they were very patient with questions and when things needed fixing/adjusting - very low maintenance guests.
My only complaint is that they left the place very dirty and were inefficient with heater use (which is one of our only house rules). While this is somewhat more understandable seeing as though they stayed over a month, it looked as though they just walked out - leaving stuff scattered around, melted candles on our tabletops, garbage, dirty microwave and refrigerator etc. In the future we will be more clear about expectations for cleanliness. I do want to reiterate that Siv and Sam were very nice and I would still be happy to rent to them again.
Siv and her guest were great, courteous and respectful, would recommend to anyone!
