I expect the good manners I have experienced from every single one of my guests over a period of two years. There cannot be smoking, of course, or raucous behavior. I really have not had to worry about this in the past.

Faythe did everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The apartment was perfectly clean and well ordered, food and coffee were stocked in the fridge, she offered detailed responses to questions about shopping in the area, she was generous, warm funny and ultimately very approachable. The location is woodsy and a five minute drive to Amherst downtown. We got the best nights sleep surrounded by woods, overlooking a pond and many birds flying about. A terrific location for a variety of experiences, we recommend it highly and would like to return!

The space is nice and spacious, though smells a little like mildew. Beds and living room are comfy. The pond is great. If you have younger children (under 10), I would not recommend this place. The owner didn't seem to be OK with kids.

My listing description says the space has a microwave, small refrigerator, and coffee maker, and that is exactly what there is. It does not suggest that there is a kitchen nor does it suggest there is a large t.v. Most customers do not come to the area to watch t.v. I am fine with well-behaved children but not the kind who turn up the refrigerator as far as it will go, switch the "off" switch on the furnace, spill soda on the bedroom carpets and basically run amok without parental supervision. The "moldy" smell may be due to the fact it has rained all spring. My space is exceedingly clean.

This place was great. The host was amazing and the location was very peaceful. It was also very convenient to central Amherst. I highly recommend this place.

And I wish you Mathew all good luck and a wonderful time with your new baby who, for all we know, may have arrived. I am sorry your wife could not share the celebration, but perhaps some photos helped. She must be a good sport. Faythe t

Faythe is really nice, and had even put out little breakfast things and coffee for me. This place is huge, and in a lovely location. Maybe fall is not the best time to visit, as I found it a bit damp, and there was a bit of a basement smell..

I stayed at Faythe's place whist attending a conference in Amherst. The place was even more cozy and appealing than what we can see in the pictures. It is very conveniently located, and the house is absolutely lovely. Faythe is a great host, and everything worked out perfectly. The place is spacious, clean, cozy and everything is well organized. Overall, it was a great AirBnB experience.
