Top floor of 2 family home west side of Cincinnati. 2 bdrms w/double beds; one bath; microwave; stove & fridge. Futon in the living room. Street parking. 15 min. drive from downtown Cincinnati. Cozy & clean but not fancy. Private separate entrance. Not handicapped accessible. We are in a residential area west of downtown; in walking distance to the bus line; banks; restaurants and convenience store.
15 min. drive from Clifton and the universities; 30 min drive or uber from the airport.
600 square ft upstairs apartment. There are two bedrooms with full sized beds. Full private bath. Kitchen with new fridge; stove; new coffee maker and microwave. We also have a dog; but the dog is now allowed upstairs in the rental space. There is a futon in the living room area which can also be used for guests who need an extra bed. Apartment is upstairs so not handicapped accessible. Private separately keyed entrance to come & go as you wish. Space heaters provided for use in winter as the upstairs tends to get cool in winter. Fans provided for summer also. Temperature is regulated from the main floor; there is no separate thermostat upstairs.
FULL DISCLOSURE: The price is reflective of the space. This space is less expensive than others because this space is NOT fancy; it is 'basic' living. The photos show it pretty well. It is two bedrooms but a small apartment. It does not have new furnishings; but it's functional and comfortable. These rooms are my boys' when they are home; we rent them while they are gone. So their things are in the rooms etc. It is cozy, lived in space. If you are looking for a modern, updated, fully decorated place to stay, this is probably not the place for you. The fridge is brand new; as is the coffee maker; but other appliances are in well used working order. If you just need an affordable place to stay for the night; and somewhere to cook a meal and take shower; it would be perfect for you. The common spaces are not large, FYI.
We welcome children and families; however, be aware that the space is upstairs and there is no baby gate available. The space is also not 'child proofed' so be aware if you choose to visit with smaller children.
Zugang für Gäste
Laundry service is available to guests staying one week or more (the facilities are in my part of the house, so you would leave the laundry for me and I'll do it for you). Small surcharge for supplies if you don't have your own. Fenced back yard so guests with house trained dogs are welcome to use the space there too. Be aware there is an extra charge to bring a pet; so please check with us before you book.
Interaktion mit Gästen
Guests have a more private space upstairs and don't need to have interaction with me downstairs unless they want to. There is a separate door to the apartment from the outside, with a separate key. I'm happy to help you with any needs during your visit, or offer recommendations as you need. I typically let the guests drive the amount of interaction they wish to have. I'd be happy to meet you while you are here if you like - just let me know - but I don't 'force' myself on guests. :-) Your separate keyed entry allows you to come and go as you please and have complete privacy.
Weitere wichtige Infos
For an extra charge, guests with pets are welcome to bring them along, as long as they are house broken and non-destructive. If you plan to bring a pet; please notify us in advance of booking for pricing.
We offer grocery shopping to stock the larder before your arrival with advance notice. The charge would be the cost of the groceries plus a nominal service fee. Contact us if you wish to take advantage of this service.
I work full time and often start at 7 a.m. Therefore, it is requested that quiet time be observed in the house by 11 pm during the week. Smokers must do so outside, not in the house.
While we are child/infant friendly; be aware the space is upstairs and there is no child gate. It is also not 'child-proofed'. We welcome any children but please be aware it is at your own risk.
Please leave the place as you found it - other than the beds - no need to make them up as we'll be stripping the sheets for washing anyway.
If you bring a pet, please clean up after your pet.
Parking: Parking is available to guests on-street; but observe no parking signs please. Any illegally parked cars are subject to towing; applicable fines/towing fees are the sole responsibility of the vehicle owner. If the host is out of town during your stay, feel free to park in the driveway.
Housekeeping: There is no daily housekeeping service. While linens and bath towels are included in the unit, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. If your stay is longer than a week, weekly maid service may be arranged at an additional weekly fee. We do not permit towels or linens to be taken from the unit.
Dishes & Trash: Guest is responsible for doing dishes and kitchen clean-up during their stay -- and before final departure; this is not included in the standard Cleaning Fee. Guest is also responsible for removing kitchen trash (or excessive trash in other rooms).
