Our stay at Mariko's place was great! We didn't get to meet Mariko as she was out of town for the weekend, but she was very accommodating and easy to contact! Responses were always fast. We came in for a football weekend and she was very understanding that we were a little late due to traffic. We were greeted by her two friendly and cute cats. The room and bathroom are very clean and looked just as pictured. Highly recommend this listing.

Mariko was a great host! Her home is great to live in, and she has two friendly cats. She was communicative and went above and beyond to make the stay comfortable. She was so kind as to allow me to stay a little longer after checkout because I was transitioning to another place.

Wonderful place to stay. Their cats are super friendly and are always there to play with you. Mariko was a wonderful host and let us stay few hours after the checkout time.

Mariko was very welcoming and kind. She had great suggestions for restaurants and things to do. The room was spotless, private and cozy. She provided anything you could imagine and her cats are adorable and very friendly! Very safe and quiet neighbourhood, close to the hospital, parks, and within driving distance of downtown Iowa City. 12/10 would recommend.
