Great location, wonderful art in the house, comfy bed.

Jerry is a wonderful host! We got the comforts of home while staying with him. Highly recommended! He made us feel like part of his family, not just guests.

So much better than staying in a motel. And more affordable! Jerry is a great host and will share stories of an interesting life when you relax at the end of the day.

The listing description was accurate. Jerry made us feel very comfortable and right at home. He was more than a gracious host....he urged us to help ourselves to whatever we needed. He became a friend and we enjoyed getting to know him. The home and neighborhood were top-notch and we felt comfortable in his bedroom and private bath.

Jerry was a gentleman in every definition of the word. He is a great conversationalist, well read, and well traveled. He is a joy to talk to and does everything he can to make your stay enjoyable. He is no stranger to fine wine, so bring some.

Response from Jerry:
It's great to host such fine people as Roy Hicks. That's the bonus for being a host on Airbnb. Sometimes our guests make great friends. Such is the case with Roy.
