"Kristine was an ideal guest and I highly recommend her to other Airbnb hosts! She was very respectful of my space and left the place in super clean condition. She was so sweet, very clean and just a great attitude overall. Her communication during the entire process was excellent and I'd host her again anytime. Thanks Kristine!"
