grazie ragazzi!!! siete fantastici, abbiamo passato momenti magici!
rimarrete sempre nei nostri cuori, io e mio figlio di 13 anni non potevamo desiderare di meglio: accoglienza speciale e puntuale, informazioni preziose su logistica ed eventi, massima pulizia e piena disponibilità degli spazi interni molto curati e preziosi (il giardino è heavenly!) gli arredi selezionati con gusto, camera e casa silenziose e luminose grazie alla posizione defilata ma al contempo vicina a Clissold Park e Stoke newinton church st, zona comodissima (ottime colazioni-brunch al Green Room, negozio di fiori con cucina a 200mt da casa) e ben servita sia da bus che da overground-tube, Canonbury station è a due passi, ottima per Shoreditch, Camden, Villaggio Olimpico, centro con Victoria e Piccadilly Line, di notte con n73 bus la fermata è a 100mt da casa; ma soprattutto voi Carolina ed Adrian siete stati host indimenticabili!
da non perdere!!!
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was a great experience! Carolina and Adrian were great hosts with a really nice house and of course a lovely cat. The bedroom is comfortable and you have your own bathroom upstairs.
The next time in London we would love to stay there a second time!
We had a fantastic stay with Carolina and Adrian. Everything was perfect and their house is located in one of the best neighbourhoods in London. They are very welcoming and easy to get along with.
This stay in London was perfect. Adrian and Carolina were great hosts ! We keep very good memories of the trip. If we have to come back to London it will be at Adrian and Carolina's place!
Thank you very much, hope see you soon !
Our stay at Caronlina and Adrian's house was great! They were extremely helpful with local tips of where to go and whete to eat! :) They have the cutest cat, Archie!
The room was on the 2nd level in a gorgeous terrace! Absolutely fantastic position in an up and coming suburb. Across the road from the bus stop,and also nice and easy to catch the tube into town and the surrounds.
It's lovely to sit out the back in the garden and soak up the sun and have a chat with Carolina and Adrian. Very friendly and easy going couple. We had a great stay! :) Highly recommended!
I only got the chance to spend one night but it was great. The bedroom was spacious and so comfy. It was definitely nice to finally sleep on a proper bed! The private bathroom was a plus as well. I never got to meet Carolina but Adrian was super nice, especially with helping me in getting to my next destination. I'd definitely recommend!
What a wonderfull experience!
The neighborhood is amazing and all the transports (Bus, Overground, Underground) near the house, make everything easier. From there, we could go to all interesting places in London :)
With such a cozy bedroom we could rest and replace all the energies for the next 15km walking ;)
Archie is simply beatifull and a perfect company in our breakfast at home ;)
Thank you guys!
See you soon
Très bonne expérience.
La maison est grande, on a une chambre et une salle de bain privée.
Les hôtes, Carolina et Adrian sont très chaleureux et ont beaucoup d'humour.
De plus, le chat Archie est très sociable.
La maison est située à 2 minutes à pied de l'arrêt de bus qui emmène dans le centre (Victoria, Oxford Circus, Tower of London...)
Je recommande donc vivement cette annonce ! J'y retournerai si jamais je reviens à Londres bientôt.
Carolina e Adrian sono persone meravigliose,simpatiche e molto disponibili. La casa è molto accogliente e pulita, inoltre sono disponibili molte mappe stradali della città. Grazie alle indicazioni di Carolina abbiamo raggiunto i luoghi da visitare con facilità. La casa si trova in una zona molto tranquilla vicino ad un bellissimo parco ed alla fermata dell'(website hidden) siamo divertite molto da loro e sicuramente ci torneremo!
Carolina and Adrian have been kind and friendly hosts. They have helped with our suitcase (it was lost anywhere at the airport!!!) and told us some good places for visiting. The room and the bathroom were clean. They were very patient with our English also :)
We had a very good time with them, was our first experience with AirBnb and we will repeat for sure.
Hope to see you again!
Una coppia stupenda hanno portato un periodo di gioia e di allegria e di positività Ospiti fantastici !!!!
Best guests are impossible, clean, friendly, respectful ... my apartment will always be pleased to receive them again. Highly recommended to other hosts.
Super relaxed and easy going!! 5Stars!!! :)
Carolina was great fun to have to stay, she is chatty and friendly. She would be most welcome to come and stay any time.
Not transparent communication from Carolina. Whenever I host, I ask form the very beginning to tell me if there is any need or request during the stay, because every guest is a single world, and I cannot guess all. I ask through texts or when I meet, how the guest feels, and if it is everything fine at home, when they reply “yes, it is”, I presume they say the truth and that it is so, if not I try my best to satisfy the guest. I had many guests so far, and nobody ever complained about anything, all the references I got in the other platforms where I advertise abaoaqu eco ethno art house are very clear, and use very different terms that the ones Carolina is using.
Therefore what I consider a real pity is the lack of transparent communication. Carolina never told me anything about these complaints. If she had, I am sure her stay would have been as warm and beautiful as for the previous guests.
Anyway, toilet papers rolls were two, and I don’t really think I have to provide more rolls, and in any case if you have a mouth you can use it to ask. There is no need to use napkins Carolina, you can just go out and buy 4 rolls for €1.50!! I provide two towels for each guest, and the bathroom is plenty of other towels at their disposal should they need more (and I say and show it upon arrival). In any case, I don't think not to have a huge towel is a good reason for not to shower. The double sofa bed has been always considered comfortable, no one before Carolina ever complained about its quality. Nevertheless, I am sorry she did not sleep well. The house if full not only of maps but of interesting books about Palermo and Sicily, and that’s all at the guest disposal, something they usually very much appreciate.
Carolina was supposed to come with two other persons for 3 nights, therefore price I set was 250€, and she agreed. However, the night before their arrival, she wrote to me that they would have been 4 instead without specifying for how many days, therefore I just thought fair that the 4th person would have paid as much as each other, and replied back if they agreed with 333€. I did not get any reply, and when they arrived they told me then that 333€ was too much, so I said 300€. When they explained that the 4th person would have stayed one night, I then said “ok, pay what you consider fair and enjoy your stay”, although I did not like at all their attitude and behaviour. I never went to the issue again, and I said I would have accepted what they thought it was fair. Of course I don’t accept out of context comparisons with b&b or whatsoever, as I leave a 100sm self catering house in the very center of Palermo, and guests don’t even have to worry with tea and coffee etc, as I offer this and not only. It seems to me that Carolina didn’t appreciate at all what she got.
About style of hosting, should I ever receive an email the night before the arrival telling me that there will be 4 guests arriving instead of the 3 agreed, I would simply say no. That’s what I learnt.
