The bedroom is comfortable enough and the bathroom is satisfactory, but I have several complaints about this house. Here are the most troubling facts of my experience:
Their computers are located directly outside this bedroom. I could hear everything the hosts said from my room. One of the hosts likes to stay up late and often sits at his computer, right outside this bedroom, until midnight or later. He leaves lamps on that bring light into the bedroom. Apart from the disruptive light, you’ll probably also hear some quieter noises like typing and throat clearing late into the night.
The hosts’ kitchen is not clean. So much of their stuff (papers, boxes, etc.) covered their dining room table that it remained completely unusable during the duration of my stay. The kitchen table (four seats) typically had their papers, boxes, prescription medications, food, and bags covering three out of the four table spaces and/or chairs. They also have a kitchen island. Their food that should be refrigerated, such as Chipotle bowls or fruit juice, often remained out for days. Their dirty paper towels littered the counter. They left dirty pots and pans out for days at a time. Sometimes, stranger objects appeared. For example, one of their socks sat on the kitchen counter for about a week. The kitchen is a beautiful room with lots of natural light, but is so messy that I rarely wanted to use it.
Some other parts of their house are similarly messy. For example, their sun room, which is a beautiful space, is completely unusable. The picture of the sun room displayed on Airbnb (photo 4/32) does not resemble how the room appeared during my stay. All of the couches/chairs and most of the floor space are covered with their papers, boxes, and other miscellaneous items. Their downstairs, which has a large television and nice chairs, lies in similar disarray.
A couple of smaller things:
The shower was not cleaned adequately on my arrival. There were lots of hairs left in the drain and around the bathtub.
Volume levels from the television and radio down the hall are often loud. I found myself having to frequently close hall doors to block noise.
Internet is good.
Backyard/Garden areas are very nice.
I had some pleasant chats with the hosts.
I appreciate their willingness to take out the trash/run the dishwasher so that I did not have to.
They asked me not to park in the street (despite what the airbnb description says) but driveway parking was permitted and easy.
I urge these hosts to clean up their house, particularly their kitchen, and to find a new place for their computers that is less disruptive to guests in this room. As it stands right now, I would not stay here again. However, if you need a short-term stay, will only be using a car (this place is not metro convenient) and won’t use the kitchen, it could work for you.
