First, I just want to point out this was our first experience using Airbnb so we didn't really know what to expect.
That said, Mike was an awesome host as he was very easy going, very helpful and always available to give us some suggestions or respond to our (numerous!) enquiries. I even had the chance to grab a beer with him on the last day and just talk about stuff, which was really nice since it helped me get a "local's" perspective on the city and the country as well.
Regarding the apartment, for me it was awesome, in an excelent and calm yet trendy neighbourhood, so close to everything one might need (24h deli just below, a supermarket across the street and lots of restaurants around). The subway was the only thing a little bit further away (around 3 or 4 blocks) but even so, very easy to get to (some 10 minutes walking, which is nothing in NYC), even with big suitcases. I could definitely see myself living in that area.
My girlfriend, on the other hand, although enjoying her stay as well, had a harder time getting used to the "familiarity" of the apartment, as it is, in fact, Mike's place.
I just want to point that out for those, like us, that are using Airbnb for the first time, as I think that was a normal and expected reaction for someone in our situation. Ultimately, one cannot forget that these are, in fact, hosts' own houses and have, therefore, their personal things around, which is ultimately weird, I guess, before one gets accustomed to it.
That said, I just want to finish pointing out this was an awesome experience and that we had a great time and would definitely do it again.
Thank you Mike for your hospitality.
We had an amazing time in Baltimore and the condo made it that much better! It truly was a beautiful home and I have been talking about the house non stop since we got home. This was my first time using air bnb, and it was a great experience!
Mike was such a fantastic host. The transaction was smooth and easy and the loft home is absolutely gorgeous. Truly one of a kind in Baltimore and centrally located. Great distance to Fell's and Harbor East, plus just two blocks from our favorite pizza place in town, Verde.
We had the pleasure of staying in Mike's beautiful home last weekend. It was a bitter sweet trip for my girlfriends and I. Sweet, in that we were coming together to celebrate our homecoming weekend... Bitter in that the last time we saw each other was to bury a dear friend. This was a time of reflection, closure and celebration. This beautiful space gave us all the ability to feel all that we were there to feel. We laughed, cried and loved... and in an environment that felt like home. Beautiful, and elegant, and truly inviting... We made new memories. Mike, you are a most gracious host, and were always there when we needed you. Thank you for your kindness. CSUHomecoming2013 goes down in history!! Hamin, we love you and miss you... and we'll always celebrate you 3
I'm happy it worked out Michelle.
I have to say Mike is very cool and makes you feel very secure before your stay. On top of that, he has an amazing home, awesome lighting arrangements and the artwork is absolutely beautiful. Perfect Urban oasis for a weekend get away and accommodated all of our needs. Beautiful hard wood floors, and unique design. We also signed and drew in the Guest book. Can't wait to stay again.
We had a phenomenal time at Mike's place. It's a beautiful, comfortable home that served us beautifully for a few nights. The neighborhood is fantastic and everything is at your fingertips. Mike was responsive and accommodating. The place is even nicer in person than it looks in the pictures and the beds and bathrooms are terrific. I'd love to stay there again.
The reservation was canceled 92 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Mike has created a beautiful space. It was a shame that I did not get to spend as much time as I would have liked to there because of social obligations across town. Speaking of which, it was a breeze getting to everywhere I needed to be. I cabbed it mostly, but most definitely could have walked to most anywhere if the weather were a bit more tolerable.
I will stay here again and will recommend Mike's lovely home to my friends.
This is the COOLEST house I've ever stayed in. The host is awesome.
Mike, your house is beautiful. It was a bit snowy the weekend we had it, but we didn't want to leave the house much anyway, thanks again!
Wonderful wonderful guests!
Mike was probably one of the chillest dudes to drop by our place. He was clean and respectful to the place and the people around him. We enjoyed some beer together for a rooftop gathering and mingled with the neighbors , Although i didnt get a chance to see him off, i will remember him by his Bullet coffee ! Dont hesitate - Mikes good company !!
Mike was great to have as a guest. He is clean, respectful, courteous and easy to get along with.
Mike wanted to stay last minute and I am glad we could accomodate. He is a great house guest and we all loved hearing all of his stories! We hope to see him soon!
Mike was very respectful to my condo. He left it very clean!
I would recommend him as your guest.
Mike spent few days in my apartment in Paris for a second time
he is the ideal tenant and this time we had more time to spend together and he actually become a friend.
some regrets : i only had time to have one (or two?) coffee with him...
see ya Mike
Mike is a disciplined man and cheerful. We like to have him with us
Great guest easy to work with just give him the map and he found it. Would be happy to have him come to any of our other homes and cabins.
Mike is a great guy! Mike is an upstanding individual with high intrinsic values. He cares about people, the planet, his friends and family. A few other characteristics: Hard working, trustworthy, loyal, intelligent and fun!
