About this listing

Combine business with slumber - and bring your baby along! This guest house is designed with work/meeting space on the ground floor, but is also a fully equipped home with sleeping quarters upstairs. Seating for 8, 1 standard bed & a crib.

The space

Coming to Dayton on business? Need a private place to work or entertain, as well as a comfortable place to sleep? Here's something a bit different...
We've transformed this cozy Edwardian home in downtown Dayton into a combination meeting space / guest house. The ground floor front entrance (guarded by Norm, the surveillance bot) opens into a sitting/reception area with a WC for guests. The front meeting room features a 7 ft stained glass Tiffany reproduction window and a gas fireplace, with 2 task tables and 4 HON task chairs. The dining room has a large stained glass chandelier, along with 2 more tables and 4 more chairs. The tables and chairs can be reconfigured to accommodate a group of up to 8, or split into workstations for 4 to 8 people, depending on your needs.
The fully furnished kitchen includes dinner service for 8 people, with a wide assortment of bar ware and serving dishes.
The upstairs master bedroom has a double bed, and the second room is furnished as a playroom/study, with a pack-n-play, desk, lounge chair and a robotic parakeet in a gilded cage. The spacious master bath has a tub with shower and a towel warmer.
The utility room has a full size washer and dryer.

This house is situated in a tiny transitional urban neighborhood (about 40 houses) tucked between the Gospel Mission and Miami Valley Hospital, which calls itself "Hope Enclave." Some houses are under renovation, and some are still boarded up, but the the eclectic group of residents - including me and my son - all know each other and look out for newcomers. There's a bus stop half a block away at Main St. and ample street parking. Dozens of restaurants are within a very short walking distance on *Warren St/Brown St, including Jimmie's Ladder 11 and the upscale Coco's Bistro.

The house is not set up to accommodate more that 2 adult guests at a time, but the playroom sleeping area is suitable for an infant or toddler. We have a high chair and stroller for you to use, and safety gates for upstairs rooms are available on request.
We have a twin size air bed we can set up in the baby room upon request. If this is to be used for a third adult, PLEASE be sure to include this information in your inquiry. The fee for additional adults is $10/person/night.

*"Warren" and "Brown" are the same street - it just changes names at Apple St.

Guest access

One of the family will meet you on arrival and demonstrate use of the electronic entry system, alarm, wi-fi etc.

This was my first Airbnb experience. When I arrived at the house, I was a little nervous about the location, as the area is in transition. However, I felt extremely safe the entire time and the neighbors, who spent a lot of time on their porches, were friendly. Plus, the alarm system gave me an extra measure of safety, as I was traveling alone. Janet was the best host I could have ever asked for. She was so sweet and welcoming. The house was immaculate and stocked with everything I would need/want. I loved that she even contacted me ahead of time to ask if I had any dietary restrictions. Being lactose intolerant, she made sure she left snacks and food I could eat. I saved so much money because I didn't have to buy a lot of food. Another positive was that I was able to babysit my two-year-old nephew while I was there because she had everything I would need for him (toys, pack-n-play, highchair, sippy cups,etc). She didn't forget anything! Janet definitely deserves being an Airbnb Super Host.

This was a great house to stay in. We were in town for our University of Dayton Reunion weekend. The location was perfect. We could walk to campus in about 5 minutes and in the evenings it was only about a $5 Uber ride to anywhere we wanted to go around campus. Janet is a great host and really goes above and beyond to make your stay nice. She contacted me a few days before our arrival and asked about any dietary needs as she does provide breakfast stuff and some snacks. She had to work when we were planning to arrive so she emailed me the code so we could get into the house. You can really feel the love and she puts into the home. You won't be disappointed!

Janet was so amazing. She stocked the house with so many goodies for our stay including a bottle of wine, cheese, breakfast and so many awesome snacks. She really went above and beyond to make us comfortable, and the house was so spacious.

My son and I have been rehabilitating four turn-of-the-last-century houses left to us by their grandmother. In addition to this work, we have day jobs (I'm a nurse) so it's been pretty slow work. We're learning a lot in the process, and are finding that our guests really appreciate the care we put into making each property unique.
