I don't even know where to begin with this review - staying with Maite was an absolute pleasure, from the very moment she welcomed me into her home. She excitedly took me around the room I was staying in, pointing out snacks and fruits, chocolates, maps and guides, and nail polish and hair things for the girls. Because I was jetlagged the afternoon I got in, she had me take a nap before pointing out places for me to visit. When I told her I wanted to see art museums and musical performances, she pulled out all the guides for me to read through and look at. I had a great time planning my days in Vienna with her.
The room is even better than pictured - extremely spacious, with plenty of natural light. It really made my stay in Vienna comfortable and relaxing. Her apartment's location was also very convenient, within 5 minutes of walking from at least 2 stations.
My favorite part of the stay was getting to hang out with Maite; if she was home and up by the time I got back, she always asked me how my day was and what I did. On my last morning, she and I went out to breakfast together, and she also made sure that I got to the train station fine that night.
Out of all of the Airbnbs I've stayed in, I've only had one other experience that even came close to the warmth I felt staying with Maite. She was caring and thoughtful and it felt like staying with a friend/older sister.
I'd absolutely recommend staying with Maite, especially if you're a girl traveling by yourself. I know I'm definitely going to see her again when I'm back in Europe in the fall!
