If my beautiful brick home was any closer to the University of Dayton, it would be on campus! It's an easy walk to the restaurants and stores on Brown Street, as well as along Irving Avenue. You’ll love my place because of the location, the well-supplied kitchen, and the convenience. It's great for couples, business travelers, and families.

The space

Each of the two bedrooms on the main level has a full-sized bed. In the huge bedroom upstairs there's a full-size bed, plus a multi-position futon that transforms into a bed. There's also a futon in the basement that can be used either as a couch while watching movies on the big screen or as a bed for extra sleeping space, plus a queen-size sleeper sofa.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, flatware, utensils, and cookware. It has a full-size refrigerator, oven/stovetop, microwave, and dishwasher. There's a regular coffee maker and a Keurig for guests to use. The adjoining dining room has a wooden table and seating for five.

The living room has a couch and two comfy chairs, plus a Smart TV (Netflix, Pandora, etc.) that also gets local channels. Throughout the home you'll see the original wood floors, and several rooms have area rugs. The only place there's carpeting is on the steps leading to the second level. The kitchen and bathroom have vinyl flooring.

Guest access

During your stay you'll have access to the entire house, plus the garage, front porch, large side yard, and back patio.

Interaction with guests

One of us will meet you to give you a quick tour of the house and to make sure you have everything you need (including the key), and then we'll leave you alone to enjoy yourselves :-) We're always just a text/phone call away, and we drive by the home each day on the way to/from work, so we're available if you need us.

Other things to note

I added this house to Airbnb in July, 2016, and I've been hosting guests at my other property since 2014.

This house is great! Very close to UD. We stayed in Melissa's place for our wedding at the UD Chapel and it was the perfect home base rather than staying at the hotel. I know where we'll be staying next time we visit Dayton!

The home was comfortable, clean and a great location for dropping off our third and final Flyer for her senior year at UD! Melissa and her husband were quick to respond to us to answer any questions and welcome us to their home.

This is a great house in a great neighborhood, right next to the University of Dayton campus. It has all of the comforts of home ... comfortable beds, WiFi, Air Conditioning, and a great kitchen with all of the dishes, pots, utensils, etc. that you would need. It even has an outdoor grill, picnic table, and a fenced in yard! And a garage. Melissa is an outstanding host and I had a great time. I highly recommend it!

Although I moved away from my hometown of Madison, IN many years ago, I still love it and visit often as my "escape." It's a beautiful little town that has done a great job preserving its history, and it's surprisingly quite impressive in the array of cultural events it hosts. …
