Its the little things that matter. There's something wonderful about finding the perfect pillow at an airbnb. Smaranda's place has a wonderful selection of pillows, it is the first time my wife and I have both been satisfied and happy with a bed and pillows on the same trip. …

OMG - so glad to read this before I tossed away half the pillows :) I guess we should keep them all now :) So happy to know you enjoyed your stay and it just makes me even more sad we did not get to spend more time together. Interesting to hear you chose to take the train from 128... I will recommend to others. Usually we take the train from Canton station. We really hope to see you all back soon! Yes, we found the note the girls left. So sweet! :)

At arrival, suite looked clean and complimentary drinks were wonderful. After getting settled and walking through, we noticed cobwebs in several places. The basement where the kitchen area was and two twin beds in the living space had a bad odor (misty mold). We were unable to fu…

Response from Smaranda:
Thank you for staying with us, Brittany. We love hosting people and are always happy to accommodate all special requests, like your request to check in 3 hrs earlier or use the pool alone..., no problem. Sorry about the AC issue, we explained that and will do a better job explaining in the property description so others will not be disappointed. Not something we can change easily, that's how we inherited the house. If you told us 75 was too high, we would have adjusted that lower. Previous guests before you asked us to turn it off completely because they were too cold :) Everyone has their own tolerance for heat and we just need to talk. About the cleanliness... we thoroughly clean the place after each guest, all corners, under beds, etc. The house is not new and we live in the woods..., some of the fixtures have a used look and we are working on replacing things one at a time... Spiders make their way in on a daily basis... Our next improvement project is the front access path, so guests don't need to walk in the grass - however, there is a stepping stone path right now, you did not have to walk in muddy grass. All in all, i think this being your first Airbnb experience probably had a lot to do with the level of your expectation about living in someone's home. Yes, you will sometimes hear us next door, we are very respectful of our guests but we will carry on our lives next door.... Wish you used the pool and the yard more, I think your son would have loved that. Good luck on your next travels!

Nice place, nice people, wonderful area, great place for kids (mine loved the pool !) Smaranda made sure we had everything to have a great stay. Even when the washer broke, she made sure to have a new one a.s.a.p. and did the laundry in the meantime to accomodate our heavy visits…

It is a beautiful apartment with lots of room. The space is very neat and clean. Located on a gorgeous lake and conservation area, it is the outdoor-lover's paradise. Smaranda is a wonderful host. We highly recommend it!

Lovely hosts and a beautiful neighborhood. While this is not a luxury accommodation (I slept in the playroom) we did feel comfortable and slept well.

Response from Smaranda:
Hi, Elizabeth - Thank you for staying with us and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Maybe next time you can take an extra day so you can enjoy the outdoors, too :) About sleeping arrangements: As described in the listing, there is a queen bed in the first floor bedroom and two twins in the playroom. We are considering re-purposing the playroom into a more cozy sitting room/ second bedroom that might be a welcome change for some guests. :) Thank you for your feedback and hope to see you again!
