My husband and I love to travel. My favorite trips have been to St. John, a U.S. Virgin Isle, where we vacationed for honeymoon, and to Ithaca, NY, the location of Cornell University, where my husband graduated college. We attended his 10-year reunion and rented our first home there. My husband studied electrical and computer engineering, worked as a software engineer for two years, and then attended Duke Law; he is currently a patent attorney. We met at church when I was in undergrad at UNC. I am currently a stay-at-home wife. We so appreciate the ability to rent full homes. We are a clean, quiet, and friendly family. Thank you in advance!

The townhouse was very nice, clean and comfortable. It was a frustrating and inconvenient experience. After traveling hundreds of miles there were no cups for a breakfast cup of coffee, there was no toaster there was ONE frying pan to prepare meals, NO iron or ironing board, (church on Sunday we wore wrinkled clothes) there were 5 plates and 5 drinking classes. No utensils to cook. On Saturday after being inconvenienced for 3.5 days of a 5 night stay the owners had utensils, iron, ironing board and pots and pans shipped to the house. I unpacked, cleaned and put away what was delivered. This has never happened on my trips using AirBnB. On our last night the owner messaged me to make sure I was out of their house by 10:00am which is rightfully the expectation BUT please give me a break. We had to eat out almost every meal, spending much more money than we had budgeted, I had to do the dishes every time we used one otherwise there were none to use. There were no containers to store food in the refrigerator or bowls to prepare food, even scrambled eggs!!!!! The owner was very responsive AFTER I complained the second time. It put me in a tough spot since I don’t like to create issues BUT my wife was VERY upset and wanted to find another place. The owners explained they live in Texas and when they use their place in Durham they eat out every meal, that was their response to me regarding no pots/pans toaster/bowls/utensils. They also acknowledged they received the same feedback that the accommodations were sub par especially in the kitchen. This was when I challenged him and said, why do you ask for feedback on your site BUT, do NOTHING about it to resolve the inconvenience.
