Liang-yu was the most lovely host and made my visit to Bloomington a really enjoyable one. I couldn't have wished for anything more - her place was very comfortable, clean and with beautiful surroundings, and felt like a home-away-from-home! There was a regular bus service to IU a short-ish walk away, which was very convenient. Highly recommended!
Liang-yu was a wonderful host. It's hard to imagine a more comfortable, tidy and inviting location to stay while visiting IU. This would be my first choice for a return trip to Bloomington.
Staying in this cozy, clean, quiet place hosted by Liang-yu was stress-free. I would recommend her place in Bloomington. (If you have back trouble though might want to keep the air mattress in mind.) Great for a musician since there's even a piano in the room. Easy driving distance from campus, and Liang-yu is a great home baker too.
I researched my place to stay in Bloomington IN quite a bit on airbnb before I found and chose the one I was looking forward to.
My travel plans were by car, and in the midst of getting to Bloomington I got caught in a very bad snow storm which stopped highway traffic in all four directions toward Bloomington. I could not make my destination when I had told the host. I was in another Indiana town trying to figure out what to do....my host was informed I'd not get there. I decided to move the 2 night stay for the following two nights, she agreed to that.
But in the morning after the snow storm, my appointment at Indiana University was cancelled (a Friday) due to the snow weather.
I had no choice but to cancel my 2 nights with my airbnb host. Everything went wrong...on my end.
My host was most considerate, and responded to my various communications, and airbnb agents were great on the phone. I had to kind of play things hour by hour and in the middle of seemingly nowhere.
I am making a follow-up trip to Bloomington and will use my host if her room is available. It's my number one choice.
Everything about it is appealing.
I regret having to cancel my what was supposed to be, a good, productive trip and stay.
I appreciate all considerations by my host and airbnb and have spread the word to many of my friends and colleagues.
My stay with Liang was short but sweet!
Liang is a warm and interesting and interested person. I'm glad she had some time to share over coffee on a Sunday morning.
Her apartment is attractive and very clean. I don't love airbeds but it was comfortable enough!
The apartment complex is not what you might think of in a college town. The property is pretty enough that wedding party photos were being taken next to one of its two ponds while I was there. There are some trails around the property but I didn't explore them much. I was happy enough to meditate by a pond (yes, it was that quiet.) and yet It is a very short ride to the IU campus and all that downtown Bloomington has to offer (which turned out to be a lot during the Lotus World Music Festival!)
I would stay with Liang again.
Liang-yu is a great hostess. Her place is very cozy and inviting, and if you're lucky, you'll get to try her fresh baked croissants and breads! I highly recommend it!
Liang-Yu was wonderful! She left the apartment immaculate. I wish I could have had more time to get to know her. I welcome her back any time! Highly recommended guest!
I was unfortunate not to have met Liang-yu. We were out of town when they arrived but the communication was wonderful so I hope she was comfortable moving in. When we returned the next day they were out exploring and quietly left the next morning. They left our place looking wonderful and I hope next time we can meet!
