Luci's place was perfect for my trip to Carbondale. It was walking distance to SIU and was situated in a nice area. This is a perfect place for someone traveling for business in the area.

Luci accommodated us with very short notice as we were traveling south from Wisconsin and had been dealing with bad roads so needed to stop. When I asked about dinner suggestions she provided an extensive list. She is very prompt in her communication. Her house is very nicely …

I was stuck in Carbondale for an extra night at 8pm with no place to go. Luci came to the rescue and what a great place. Probably the best value I've ever had at an American AirBnB. Great room, quiet neighborhood, tons of extras like coffee, snacks, water, and so on. And it's…

Lucy was very mice and proactive in her communications to me prior to my arrival. She had tea and breakfast items available as well as cold drinks in the fridge. The bed was comfortable as well. I had been traveling all night and was exhausted when I arrived. Lucy let me know tha…

Response from Luci:
he windows are brand new so there are tiny safety locks . They can't be raised more than and 1.5 inches. No one can possibly break in . .. .. also You were free to close them.. They work like magic.. shut easily.. MORE IMPORTANTLY I say to my guests many times in emails when i'm not there... if you have any questions or concerns I'm available 24/7 so if the windows being open during beautiful weather bothered you .. A) you could have asked me about them and B) You were free of course to easily shut them having the house to yourself.Also Airbnb listing clearly states we don't offer TV as an amenites my hundreds of guests don't mind that.. as listing states 'no TV' . . I also have EVERY neighbor on the street's phone number on the fridge and in your room... two of whom are five star hosts ....and also Mayor of Carbondale lives three houses away. That street is the safest in the (Website hidden by Airbnb) odd you said my home smells of moth balls and also complain about the locked safety windows being open , that keep the house safe and secure.. in one of the most quiet safe and cleanest areas in town which very safe windows.. I see this was your first Airbnb stay and Airbnb is like staying in a friends home. It's not cookie cutter uniform and you need to read all the information the host gives you . Most guests love getting a whole house to themselves, clean sheets and a clean sanitized . Many love the maple trees and fresh air coming in .. room and bath to themselves for $35 .. and don't mind the host returning to her own home in the morning. AFter all it is advertised as a shared home.. and you checked in early to enjoy by yourself... AND I let you have the upgraded room WITH NO CHARGE ---it was and is a great value.

Stayed at this location. As advertised in a nice, quiet part of the city. Super close to SIU. We had one hot day as the AC had broken, but Luci (who was out of town at the time) worked hard to get it remedied (even guiding me through some potential fixes in areas normally off-lim…
