What I have: Right on the lake, tons of light, fast WIFI, cool coffee shops around the corner, walking distance to groceries, Bart (1 mile walk), awesome bars and restaurants. Bath and shower. Full size kitchen. Hammock. Full size bed. What I don't have: Parking (free street parking but can be tough at times and you must pay attention to signs), TV, A/C (I do provide 2 fans and a heater), elevator (apt on 2nd floor) and neighbors that tolerate unruly behavior, loud music, stomping or parties or any sort. My place is perfect for solo chill travelers!
Please note this space is only for 1 person currently. Definitely no dinner parties or groups of folks coming to hang out currently. Please respect this request!
Also please note that this place can get hot as it has big windows and is on the lake. There is no AC but I leave 2 fans out and if you open the windows it is super comfortable!
Kitchen is fully equipped, bathroom has a tub, bed is only a double (another reason this is best for one person). There is a couch and a hammock. Super fast WIFI!
Also it's on the second floor, not a long hike up stairs but definitely some stairs there :)
I only rent out my place when I'm traveling but my phone has global roaming and I respond as soon as I see messages come through so message me on airbnb and if there are emergencies of any kind call me! Also my parents are typically around in the area for emergencies as well!
My place is right on the lake and it can get pretty noisy during the day if you leave the windows open and every so often it can get noisy at night although never past 10pm in my experience. Common noises are kids playing, folks talking and geese honking. I'm a sound sleeper so this never bothers me but if park noises bother you (no judgement), especially during the day, this is not a great place for you to stay!
The building is full of neighbors, some who are sensitive to noise, so things like loud music or even walking in high heels late at night on the hardwood floors I have been asked specifically not to do and would appreciate if you were also careful with this!
Also sorry but for now only 1 person allowed in the booking, so no couples or overnight guests.
Also hate to be a buzz kill but no smoking whatsoever. Smells spread through the building easily and this is a big complaint for neighbors. Sorry, do it out on the lake!
Otherwise just common sense being considerate would be awesome :)
