The host, Phil, was awesome. We didn't actually see him much, but when he was around was very kind and gracious.
We lucked out. Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the mountains. We had a little balcony from which you could see a glacier and even Mont Blanc if I recall.
Rooms are lockable but with a very basic key - never worried about anyone going into our room, but if you are, just don't leave valuables in there.
Phil had some bikes available for us to bike into Chamonix (which was actually quite fun) - there is a busstop nearby but we never used it.
You can't beat the price for that view.
