By now, I am a regular at Sylvia's, and give the highest recommendation! I stay here during my periodic visits to UMass, and feel so comfortable and at ease. She has a beautiful home with lots of natural light, conveniently located to downtown, and Sylvia is a welcoming and easygoing host. I'm looking forward to my next stay!

Our first Airbnb experience was wonderful, courtesy of Sylvia. Her home is wonderful and cozy and we were able to stroll downtown for dinner and drinks. We will definitely be back!

I'd say we had an average stay at Sylvia's place. I'm torn: on one hand I am super grateful as she opened her home to us despite encountering medical complications the week of our trip. On the other hand there were some significant cleanliness issues that we couldn't overlook. I'd like to give her the benefit of the doubt though and say that our experience was an anomaly due to her unplanned absence.

Response from Sylvia:
Adam, I apologize that conditions were not satsfactory for you. I assure you that is not the norm for conditions in my home. Somehow you were in the wrong bedroom. You should have been in the front of the house. Not sure where those ants came from. I have never had them before!!! My standards are extremely high and I have never encountered a bad review before. I assure you this was due to my not being there. I did however promise to accommodate you and I did not want to inconvenience you by can cancelling your reservation. Other guests have not encountered the problems you described. Again, I sincerely apologize and hope you will forgive the sub-par conditions under the circumstances.

Sylvia is the best! She absolutely goes out of her way to make sure you are taken care of. I had absolutely no issues with check-in or outs and her house was so inviting! I can’t wait to go back again. I needed a little relaxation all on my own and that’s what I got! I am a single 34 yr old female traveling alone and felt 100% Safe.
