Bobby is a great communicator but a poorly kept building will be a great disappointment when guests arrive at the building for accommodation. Posting photoshopped /manipulated pictures of a derelict building does not change the condition of the building.

Response from Bobby:
The review is absolutely not accurate simply because you never checked in. Your family did. Third hand accounts aren't always correct. But sorry you didn't like the experience.

The house is a little darker than the picture. But kitchen appliance is good.

Good place to stay outside of the city for a low price. It's close to public transportation but also not too bad of a walk into the city. Host responds very quickly and is helpful.

Bobby was a great host, made sure to respond quickly and always had information that we needed. He also provide things to do around the area and the city. Would definitely stay there again once in town.

The apartment was very clean and looked exactly as it did in the pictures. The area is pretty safe because it's next to Temple University. It's close to the subway, bars and some corner stores. Definitely would recommend.

Bobby User Profile

Energetic Motivated Person with a Business Demeanor and Personality. Health and Social Living is important to me and I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. Some of my closest freinds were met through interesting events.

I own and operate several businesses in several states in the U.S. So I am very focused on moving ahead and travel a lot as well. One of my businesses requires me to be deal with the Entertainment Industry so I am very well connected as well, but I don't take advantage of that, its a blessing.

I'm very Clean, Open Minded, Mature and Respectful. Freindly yes yet you can have your own space if you are not into meeting new people. I can host and provide ideas, tips and suggestions on what to do when your in the area, that comes with people asking in advance and and if Im available to do so, which is most cases I am.

This is my home and I welcome those who come and visit. I hope to receive the same level or consideration from all the guest who come to Casa Del Forest, Nickname for home.

PS. I cant live without my children, (They live elsewhere), Reading, Internet, Getting together with my friends to just appreciate our times, and my business momentum. Its what drives me.

When I travel I like to meet new people and I like to get to know the areas from a local perspective, not the tourist version.

Life Motto "Palante" Means "Forward" in spanish.
