Joe's place was as described - his communication was excellent and he seems willing to be as helpful, or as unobtrusive as the guest would like. Will definitely consider staying at his place again. Also, VERY convenient parking and access to public transportation. If you don't mind a stroll, fairly straightforward walk into the city as well!!
Joe was courteous. But I was expecting a solo stay at the apartment. I was sharing the apartment with the host for all the 3 days. There was no designated dinning place, so I was having my meals standing next to the kitchen shelf. The bed was broken and the carpet was not vacuumed and there were pieces of dry snack lying under the lamp desk in the bed room. The linen was over used and was the same as in the pictures. The living room pictures were on the air bnb site but 2 of the 3 days the host was using it and I felt odd coming out of my room and jostle for space and for light during the day to enjoy the view. I am not a frequent air bnb user but I guess the host should understand that it takes more than a smile to make a guest feel at home. Giving a critical feedback is harder than giving a top ranking. I think Joe can do a better job to justify the price and the location. He needs to do more. I deserved more than what I got from the experience.
