I had a great stay! Charles and his wife were very welcoming, and the room was just as described and comfortable. I recommend them very highly as hosts.
Charles and his wife Socheata are excellent hosts! The room is as exactly advertised: a second bedroom/office with an air-mattress, but it is very comfortable and very convenient. If you are visiting Yale, you could not find a better place or better hosts. More than anything else, Charles and Socheata are just incredibly nice, interesting, and funny people who make you feel like you are crashing at a friend's place rather than staying in a stranger's house. Spending two nights there was awesome!
Charles' home was the perfect oasis needed to complete my interview at Yale. The townhouse could not be more centrally located, less than a block from two campus shuttle routes, one of which goes to the train station. The guidelines and rules were clearly explained and every contingency had been planned for. Charles and his wife were very flexible to my schedule and made it simple for me to come and go as I needed. The accomodations were great. A private room with the most comfortable air matress imagineable and a very tidy home. If you have a need to be in New Haven, I cannot recommend this place enough.
Nice room. Charles and his wife are very nice to pick us up. Everything needed was provided.
There's absolutely nothing to criticize! Everything is like mentioned in the offer. The two hosts are really friendly and dedicated - they will tell you everything you want to know and show you how to get were you want to go (use the Yale shuttle, it's free!). Perfect :-)
Charles and his family are very warming to stay with, you'll never fell alone there! Highly recommended if you are visiting Yale! By the way, he is good at cooking.... *_*
It was really nice to stay with Charles and his wife. They were friendly and helped me to find my way in the New Haven. Thank you for the friendly hospitality!
Charles and socheata are both lovely. Friday the dog is also adorable (and quiet). House is clean and air bed was comfortable. House is also on the blue Yale shuttle route, which helps a lot. Would highly recommend to any phd/mature candidate looking for a place to crash for the night at a considerate price. Follow their house rules and, like me, you will have a very pleasant stay.
Charles was a great host. The room was cozy, his place is conveniently located off the free Yale shuttle line and their dog was out-of-this-world awesome. Recommended.
Not much to add to the previous great reviews. Good value in a clean apartment. The air mattress was comfy. Charles was helpful and a good host.
Charles was excellent to communicate with. Him and his wife were interesting to talk to and are clearly airbnb experts. It was great to get to know their story. They will continue to do amazing things in California.
They stripped the bed without being asked. That's special.
Charles,his wife Socheata and their friend Bill visited me for 3 (website hidden) was a pleasure meeting them. They were very considerate guests.
I had wanted to be up to offer them breakfast. As they wanted to get a very early start they were kind enough to fend for themselves.I didn't hear a peep from them.
My home was treated with respect-they cleaned up after themselves and were most understanding and patient .
Charles was very kind in giving me some sage advice for hosting from his own experiences as a Airbnb host himself.
I had some water pressure issues which they were very kind to put up with.I needed to change my home filter sooner than expected.
All 3 were very interesting (website hidden) would have been nice to have had more opportunity to get to know each other.I think they had a very nice skiiing experience and I am glad that I was able to be of some assistance in their weekend trip.
Charles and Socheata are academics-Bill too.Very intelligent,open minded .I found them to be polite,very considerate and very quiet house guests.
A very good guy. Just short time to meet him but lots of things to talk about, as he's also a host on Airbnb.
Thanks for your time, again Charles! It is very kind of you!
Charles, his wife and friends were wonderful guests. They were a friendly, very responsible group. The house was left in perfect shape. We recommend them very highly as guests!
