Live in Monrovia, looking a for a place for my folks to stay while they are here remodeling.
This was my first time using airbnb and it was a great experience. Me, my girlfriend and my dog stayed with the Samuelian family for 10 nights and Jason and his wife were very gracious hosts the entire time. I needed to find a temporary housing arrangement while I was looking for something permanent in the area and this was much better than staying in a motel. Having a big backyard was a big plus for my dog, who really enjoyed playing with their dog.
For others considering staying with the Samuelians, the living arrangements were exactly as advertised and downtown Monrovia is a short walk of about 6 blocks. The kitchen was definitely gourmet quality and we grilled out twice during the stay as well.
Being my first airbnb experience I will admit I was a little nervous about staying with strangers, but within 10 minutes of arriving I knew I had made a good decision. Jason and his wife were perfect hosts and their daughter might be the best-behaved 1 year old I have ever encountered.
Our stay with them helped mitigate the frustration of a drawn-out search for permanent housing and I would recommend them without reservations to anyone considering a stay.
Jason and his running team stayed at our house for a night, this past weekend. They could not have been better guests! Warm, communicative and neat. Even left some beers in the fridge.
Thank you Jason! All best to you and your family.
Jason's parents stayed at my apartment for over a month. They found it in good shape, and left it in even better ... I can swear that the shower is stronger, and the houseplants have never been healthier. And the apartment is very, very clean. Excellent, neighborly guests, welcome back any time.
