We did not stay with Kaia because it was not what we had expected. We were looking for air conditioning, decent wifi, and a kitchen to make most of our meals. The kitchen was more of an efficiency and had no plumbing. The wifi was not good and there was not air conditioning per Kaia's note left for us.

You are the first guests in 2yrs to give this type of feedback. While it's helpful to receive feedback, it's also important to state that certain details you were unhappy with are clearly delineated in the listing. I encourage you to communicate more clearly in the future (prior to booking/confirming a reservation) to avoid this situation (late-cancellation & your expectations not met) for another host and for yourselves. A few points of clarification: The WIFI works extremely well; however, cellular signal-quality varies, depending on your carrier. Perhaps you were confused? The utility sink in the Laundry room (adjacent to the studio) functions as the kitchen sink. There has never been Air Conditioning. In Colorado we use swamp coolers and other more sustainable, alternative cooling systems to keep homes cool.

Quiet street in a quiet and friendly town. Kaia's house is a affordable and convenient location for visits to Lyons and the surrounding areas (Longmont/Boulder). Check-in is stress free.

Kaia was a very gracious and welcoming host. It was very easy to communicate with her and she was very accommodating for our later arrival and very early departure. On our arrival, in the suite's refrigerator, she left us a small snack of cheese, crackers and beer. The suite was clean and roomy, the bed comfy, and the shower hot! Lavender planted right outside the bathroom window filled the suite with its perfume. The restaurants in Lyons that Kaia recommended were wonderful. It was a wonderful small town experience!
