Design meets learning. Social meets business. Dinner parties meet the board room. Improv meets the kitchen.
Me, in brief.
Melanie and her friends were fun to host. We wish they could have stayed longer! They left the place clean and tidy and were a easy to communicate with. We would recommend them to anyone hosting!
Melanie and Adam stayed a short time but were lovable just the same. They were at the tail end of a whirlwind tour of Western Washington. It was lovely to host them and see the amazement at the difference between here and Chicago! Great guests overall.
Melanie and Emi were wonderful guests! We would be happy to host them again in the future.
Melanie was a wonderful guest. She and her companion made themselves at home in our cozy cabin and were delightful to chat with around the campfire and upon departure. It was a joy to provide them with a relaxing escape from the city.
Melanie and David were perfect guests! Extremely friendly, courteous, and just plain nice to have around. They were very easy to coordinate and communicate with both before and during there stay, and left the house in immaculate shape. They are always welcome back here, and I wish them the best in their travels. A+++
Melanie is awesome!!! So friendly, kind, outgoing! I think that if she stayed longer, we would have made a real great friends. She is quite mature for her age and that makes her even more special. I hope she comes back to Vancouver and I can show her the real city and real fun:))
Best wishes to her!!!
melanie was a great guest!! friendly, easy, clean, and down to earth with a sense of humor. would absolutely recommend!!
Arriving at Melanie’s apartment recently, I was greeted by the smell of something delicious coming from the kitchen. “You’re just in time!” she exclaimed. “I’m making fortune cookies!”
Not authentic, of course, but totally awesome. The kitchen was quite a scene. There were hot pans on every burner, take-out boxes lining the windowsill (nice touch), and fresh--albeit somewhat lopsided--cookies cooling on anything with a rim. A perfect way to send well wishes in the New Year.
This pretty much sums up Melanie. She’s thoughtful, creative, and always up for trying new things. As a Yelp Elite member, she’s tapped into the Chicago foodie scene and can direct you to some of the best restaurants and bars in town. She’s incredibly well-read on education, local politics, architecture and design, making her a damn good conversationalist.
She was a gracious host with a stylish apartment and super comfortable air mattress for a weary traveler. I look forward to my next stay with her!
Gets it? Has 'it'? Mel.
Ask anyone. They'll tell you,
