Spend the night with the Beatles! Formerly "The Romantic Getaway", this room is now decorated with memorabilia from "The British Invasion," a musical period of the 60s. It features a bluetooth stereo to play music from your smartphone. The bathroom features a jacuzzi but no shower. This is our most private room. It also boasts a sitting area directly outside the bedroom with a 50" plasma & surround sound system. That room also houses a collection of vintage guitars and drums from the period.

The space

Bella Notte is an old Tudor Mansion in North Avondale about four blocks from Xavier University. The home has two central air conditioning units. Three of the seven bedrooms are available to Airbnb guests.

A fourth bedroom is used as an exercise room featuring a computerized recumbent bike with a display of simulated bike trails and a high end vintage stereo system for use while working out with the free weights or on the mat.

Bedrooms five, six and seven are occupied by the owner, his daughter and used as an office.

Airbnb requires separate listings for each room so Bella Notte has three listings, one for each available room. Be sure to check all the calenders for availability. .

All rooms have individually keyed privacy locks for your security and a wireless network gets you on the internet. Every room has a desk that will accommodate a laptop. Televisions are not supplied in two rooms but the British Invasion has a 50" plasma with Spectrum and all the premium channels. DVDs are available on loan from an extensive collection that you may take to your room and watch on your laptop. Two of the rooms have a shower, one has a tub as well. The British Invasion has no shower but features a jacuzzi. This is the most private room as it is the only guest room on the third floor. There is a den immediately outside the room with a big screen TV, surround sound and a great stereo system.

There is a 24/7 coffee station and a mini-fridge centrally located on the 2nd floor available to all the rooms. The mini-fridge is stocked with complimentary, cold bottled water and a single serve coffee station featuring a choice of coffees.

There is a half-bath on the first floor close to all the dining areas for your convenience. Some rooms feature a CD player or an iPod player to listen to music. The entire house and patio is a non-smoking area. We do not accept pets or small children at this time. We have a gentle cat in the house, so if you are allergic to cats, this is not the place for you. All rooms feature Queen size beds.

Breakfast is served, in the dining room which seats ten. Upon check-in you will be asked your dietary needs and preferences.

The house boasts very large rooms and has multiple dens. The "man cave" features a billiard table, poker table and a backgammon table and chess.

Our kitchen is large and the menu features over three dozen exciting offerings for breakfast, as well as coffee, tea, juice, espressos, lattes and cappucinos. Our goal is to provide you a healthy and creative start to each day. On arrival each guest is queried regarding food requirements, such as food allergies as well as preferences.

Street parking is abundant in a safe neighborhood where residents walk their dogs and jog at all hours. Off street parking can accommodate up to four cars. Downtown is about 5 miles away. UC and the zoo are just a couple miles. Xavier is about 5 blocks away. The bus stops with frequency a scant block away. Many fine restaurants exist in the Hyde Park area, which is about 2 miles from our location as well as a few in Norwood and in St. Bernard, both just a little over a mile. The best mall shopping is in Kenwood, about six miles away but Hyde Park boasts many fine shops and malls as well. We are centrally located with easy access to both I71 and I75 as well as 562 known locally as the Norwood Lateral. There are several easy to follow surface roads that lead to the main areas of the city and downtown as well, that can get you there without any traffic, any time of day or night in just minutes. The airport, which is in Kentucky is about 30 miles away but if you want to get a better airfare you can fly into Dayton, a 50 minute drive.

Special arrangements can also be made for guests with special needs. Just include that in your inquiry.

What a wonderful home Michael has opened up for our stay on Airbnb, The accommodations where great and the breakfast was delicious, he even accommodated our Gluten free request. Our daughter goes to school at Xavier which is only a few blocks away so we are looking forward to our next visit this fall to Cincinnati and to Michael's airbnb.

The food was great, however, the personal items and decor did not live up to the romantic getaway that is advertised.

Michael went above and beyond, even making me frittatas each of the 4 mornings I was there. Communication was super fast and he was wonderfully accommodating. And the sheets on the bed upstairs were so soft and comfortable! Thank you Michael!

I'm a filmmaker who recently directed a feature film called "The Black Dove" starring John Savage, Sean Young, Abby Wathen, Red West, David Della Rocco and Lou Beattie Jr. My grandfather was a grocer and my Dad was in the Air Force. I learned to cook from my grandmother and mother.

Bella Notte is more than just a B&B. It's my home. It's decorated in an eclectic mix and the many books and antiques have deep personal meaning, so please respect them. While I know you will enjoy the atmosphere, its just as much about breakfast. Bella Notte exists for "foodies" and the menu is varied. Let me know if you have any preferences or foods you need to avoid and I will make every effort to craft a meal for you that you will savor and enjoy to begin each day here.

In the tradition of my family, mealtime is about sharing our lives through conversation. While you may dine alone, I encourage you to engage the other guests, as well as myself, in discussion and intellectual exploration. Humor is always appreciated, as is serious reflection. so don't be shy. Join us for a dynamic breakfast experience you will help to create.
