The property is very well located, a few minutes from the city centre (either by bus or walking). Room is very confortable and Alonzo is a kind, understanding, and accommodating host. I had a short though pleasant stay.
The room was clean and comfortable. Alonzo and his family were friendly.
First ever homestay experience and I’ve found the place to be quite comfortable. Clean house, quiet environment and the host Alonzo is very helpful and welcoming. Was very satisfied with the stay and my overall experience was great, would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay.
He is a nice men. My stay is just a day but it was great
Very Hospitable host. A great stay.
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Extraordinary experience! I've been in this house for 3 months and received unprecedented hospitality. The location was great, friendly and clean. Alonzo is always available to help and give advice to his guests. I also had the opportunity to taste some of his delicious dishes. Excellent Jerk Chicken and pizza! 5 stars richly deserved. Strongly reccommended!
I had a nice stay, the room is fine with a good bed, location is perfect short walk or few bus stops downtown. Alonzo is a friendly band helpful man, I definitely recommend his place.
Super, très sympa, je recommande vivement. Eric
