Interaction with guests

Always happy to help! Let us know what you need and we will try our best to arrange for it. Interactions will be based on your comfort - as little or as much as desired.

Other things to note

Thought of putting this out there: the townhouse is a decently old one, and tends to have a musty odor at times if the windows are kept closed for prolonged periods (typically in winters). However, we try our best to air it out as much as possible and it works great, especially in the summer. If you are sensitive to odors, you could let us know and we would be happy to be extra cautious before your stay. Thanks!

If you do need some flexibility with check in/check out, feel free to ask about it. Will be happy to accommodate if I can maneuver around my schedule.

This was a perfectly OK place to stay for the night, which was all I was looking for. Madhu accommodated a last minute request, which I appreciated. When I got there she was assembling a new bed which was comfortable. Madhu was friendly and cheerful. This is a good value.

Could not ask for anything more. I am a Real Estate Professional and have an acute appreciation for value in terms of rental properties both short and long term. Madhu's place was immaculate, exactly as advertised, a terrific value - I am a repeat customer of hers who plans to continue to return until my son's graduation from PSU. My highest endorsement - Tkx Madhu!

Response from Madhu:
Hi Rira, sorry you found the room/blankets that way. However, everything is washed and cleaned before a guest arrives and you could have let me know if you needed anything replaced. Also, Items in the room are not for pickup. We try our best to make our guests feel comfortable. This isn't a hotel and in the future it would be nice to clarify expectations with the host so that neither party is disappointed.

Exactly as described and Madhu is wonderful as a host! Perhaps a bit dingy of a room but bed was fine and did not hurt my back in any way--and I am sensitive to terrible mattresses. Excellent value in a place where rooms can be expensive. The parking spot next to the apartment was great for me. Very close to Sheetz, Trader Joe's, Walmart, Megabus.
