Amal's place was all around 5 stars. I couldn't ask for a better host for the amount of time I stayed. Doug and Amal are both sociable, fun, and great to talk to. Best place to stay if youre going to be in this area.

Amal's space was even better than described. The bedroom was large and had a large closet and the private bathroom was ensuite. She and her husband Doug were superb hosts and were a pleasure to be with. Amal made us eggs and toast for breakfast and included a delicious homemade fig jam. Also, we happened to be there while Doug was making some great homemade applesauce which he shared with us. I would summarize our stay almost as visiting old friends rather than staying with strangers. It was the best of our 25 AirBnB experiences.

This is a beautiful well furnished home, with a comfortable bedroom and bath for guests. Wifi works well, the kitchen offers keurig machine for coffee. The neighborhood is peaceful tho not far from main streets. The hosts are very attentive and attentive and anxious to meet your every need.

Doug was a very good host, and gave us suggestions to find places around the city to eat. The neighborhood was quiet, and the room was comfortable. I would recommend this home to stay at.

Amal and Her husband were great hosts! Amal is a wonderful baker and she greeted me with the smell of freshly baked pastry:) I had a wonderful stay with her family. Her home was everything described and more. The room I stayed in was clean, very quiet and comfortable, really loved the private bathroom too. Although I was only there for a night I would very highly recommend to stay with Amal.
