From my first contact with the owners prior to my visit to an early morning (5am) departure after my ten day visit, I felt like I had a top notch and caring travel experience at a fantastic price. Right away, I felt completely at home and safe and comfortable in their home which is so important when you’re a woman traveling solo. On my first morning they provided a great orientation to the city and its sights, restaurants, tours and events so I was comfortable wandering around the town on my own right away. Throughout my visit they made suggestions and helped me out by assisting with arrangements. And their recommendations for restaurants, services and events all turned out to be perfect. They really know their city well and go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful and memorable visit.
My room was spacious, clean and very comfortable and the breakfasts were fantastic - delicious and abundant. I stayed in the king room and there is a lovely sitting area outside the room which was great for reading or relaxing too. In addition there is a beautiful flower filled patio area just outside the rooms where you can relax or even have your breakfast or a drink later in the day. They are located in a very safe neighborhood and I felt comfortable day and night coming and going there. I was also able to do some laundry there which meant I didn’t have to bring a larger suitcase. You’ll love the dogs – Butch and Boo – they’re always happy to see you.
Stan and Julie create such a fun, relaxed, laid back atmosphere that you’ll want to stay even longer. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Trip Advisor needs to create a higher category than excellent just for them.
