"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."
