What our guests have to say...

Hannah, Airbnb, November 2023

"We had a lovely stay for a family birthday. The location was perfect and in easy reach of everything. House was beautiful, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Hosts were extremely helpful and responsive. House was well equipped, with nice little touches as well. Thank you for a lovely stay. Hannah"

Kerri, Airbnb, November 2023

"Amazing house amazing , amaz8ng location."

Direct, October 2023

"Thanks so much for the most wonderful stay. It surpassed all our expectations! We had such a lovely time and The Parisi is beautiful and felt like home straight away (our youngest wanted to move in!). We hope to be back soon."

Bruce, Airbnb, October 2023

"This place met our expectations and then some. We loved the warmth, the layout, the décor, everything. Plus, we were welcomed with some delicious treats and champagne!
We loved the kitchen and spent too much time in there. The front room was so cozy. We enjoyed relaxing in the private garden looking at the stars. Our bed was very comfortable, which is a plus when you’re traveling from overseas.
The amenities are numerous, things that other places might not include.
• I think I let out a little scream of joy when I saw the small oscillating fan in the wardrobe. (I need real white noise when I sleep, not that stuff you can get on apps.)
• Extra pillows in case you need them (which we do).
• Those little luggage racks? They had those too.
• Heated towel racks.
• A binder full of local suggestions: restaurants, pubs, religious services, and more. Wonderful!
• And so much more!
Thank you, Maria and Sophie. Our stay at The Parisi was probably the highlight of our trip! :)"

The location is perfect and the place itself is stunningly beautiful, as well as functional! I highly recommend!"

Heather, Airbnb, June 2023

"The Parisi Townhouse was absolutely perfect in every way!! Our family of five adults stayed for 3 nights to see the sites in York. There was plenty of room for 3 tall guys (tall ceilings & doorways). The beds (and pillows) were very comfortable & the king beds are US king size. There was plenty of common space for us all to hang out - kitchen, library/family room, large garden. Room darkening curtains and fan in every bedroom. Included parking was great! Awesome location - walkable to everything, but nice a quiet. LOVE that 4 throw blankets were provided in the family room (rare to even have 1 in most airbnbs). Maria & Sophie are fantastic hosts - super responsive & left the best instructions (with photos) for everything in the house. They anticipated and fulfilled every need we had. We so appreciated the cake, Prosecco, milk and coffee beans they provided, as well as laundry detergent. Don’t look for any other place to stay in York - this is truly perfect!!"

Iain, Airbnb, April 2023

"We have stayed at a lot of Airbnbs in the States and the UK/Europe and this was by far the nicest one we have ever stayed at. The townhouse is amazing. It is hard to find hotels to accommodate families of 4, and this was so much better than renting two rooms at some generic chain. My daughters said they felt like royalty staying there. The rooms were immaculate, each one a different, cheery color scheme and luxurious on-suite baths. I could only dream of having a kitchen like the one at the townhouse. The location is spectacular, right across from a historic chapel and walkable to all of the City Centre. Again, cannot say enough good things about our stay. Thank you Maria and Sophie!"

Daphna, Airbnb, April 2023
"Our stay couldn't have been more lovely. Visited for two nights with six of us (including 2 kids & 2 grandparents). The location is incredible. Walkable (a minute or two) to loads of restaurants and coffee shops, and very easy access to the city center, the walls. The house itself is magical, and the hosts couldn't have been more helpful. They left us a really lovely welcome package including a cake (my children devoured) and lots of detailed info about the area. They reached out to let us know we could check out late if we wanted. They just went out of their way to make our stay wonderful, which it totally was. It was actually very rainy in York the days we happened to be there, and everyone enjoyed relaxing in the house, playing games (they have many), reading, etc. Highly recommend."

"Had a great stay at the Parisi! We wanted a home from home for our D&D group and it did not disappoint. Gorgeous house, every room with an ensuite, fab communal space and they even had Mario Kart! Location was second to none with gorgeous views of a church and loads of places nearby for food and shopping. They also went out if their way to let us check in early as we were getting lunch! Great hosts, thanks!"
Emma, Airbnb, Dec-Jan 2023
"Fabulous property. Location was great amazing local restaurants around the corner and the city centre within a 5 minute walk. The property was clean and had everything you could possibly need, pictures are accurate. Sophie and Maria were perfect hosts and you could tell they work very hard to make this a fantastic place to stay. Would highly recommend."

Kelly, Airbnb, December 2022
"The Parisi townhouse was absolutely stunning. The beautiful photos don’t even do it justice. The home has parking and is in town center. We walked everywhere with absolute ease, including to the station. The owners Maria and Sophie are so so nice and very responsive. The house is stocked with absolutely anything you or your children could need. There is also multiple grocery stores a block or two away. We enjoyed playing games fireside in the evenings after a full day of touring. That stack of games was such a wonderful touch. The bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. Each with its own bathroom. The kitchen is massive and the living room fit our large family wonderfully. If you’re thinking of visiting York (and you definitely should) don’t hesitate to stay at the Parisi."

Clare, Airbnb, December 2022
"Just WOW - this is the best airbnb that we've ever stayed in, and the hosts were so accommodating and kind. The house is immaculately decorated with everything that you could possibly need. The beds were super comfy and each bedroom had an ensuite, which was a great touch. The location is also super with some lovely restaurants and bars only a couple of minutes away - we did lots of sight seeing in York and nothing was more than 15 mins away. We would love to come back and are SO grateful to Maria and Sophia for being such wonderful hosts!"

James, Airbnb, October 2022
"Sat in the outside bath, looking over the beautiful courtyard garden you can't help falling in love with this gem of a property. We visited for the weekend and this house provided a calming retreat from the hustle and bustle of York. Comfy beds, well stocked kitchen, gloriously decorated and cosy lounge, en suites for every room - what's not to like. Hats off as well to Maria ad Sophie for being excellent hosts and making things seamless. A real winner."

Darren, Airbnb, August 2022
"Amazing stay! Hosts were responsive and their messages friendly and helpful. And what a place they have put together, they clearly have taken such care to make it so special! Just the perfect blend of interesting, quirky, tasteful, luxurious and welcoming. As a family we had a stay we will always remember. The extra 'touches' were fantastic, the location is perfect - quite quiet for a place so close to the best that York has to offer. We are already planning our next family trip. The one who had an even better time was our whippet Pinter, who had a ball and especially loved the garden when we were all sat outside - dog friendly throws etc. are to hand and make being there with the VIP super stress free. Thanks both! amazing!"

Simon, Airbnb, June 2022
"Fantastic place; a real gem. Even better than the photos, and only a short stroll into the centre. Very well equipped and lovely kitchen tempted us to cook most nights and take advantage of the garden. Communication with Maria and Sophie was perfect, and check-in and out was effortless. Don’t think I will ever look elsewhere for a visit to York, especially with a group."

An amazing private walled garden, lovely views of the church across the road, walk to all the best bars and restaurants from the front door in minutes.
Maria & Sophie had thought of everything in the property, the house was stocked with everything you may need during your stay.
100% we will be back again…"
