This house is spacious, private, and (generally) quiet (it's a row house and we do occasionally hear our neighbors when they are socializing outside). 1500 sq ft home with two bedrooms, a toddler's room, finished basement, updated kitchen with dishwasher, front porch, small back deck with barbeque, and hardwood floors throughout. Washer/dryer, iron, and steamer are in basement. We have central A/C and ceiling fans. Off-street parking available in the back of the house (it's a tight turn off of an alley, but it's possible to park SUVs there). The home has wireless internet but no television.
The house has two bedrooms with queen beds (comfy new mattresses), plus 2 full baths and 2 half baths. We have a comfortable blow-up queen mattress that can also accommodate two more guests. We don't have a coffee maker, but we do provide you with Starbucks instant coffee. And there's a coffee shop around the corner.
We're teachers who love to travel and meet new people. You will find our home clean and inviting. We hope you love our home as much as we do.
You will have access to the whole house, but you will need to tell us ahead of time if you need closet and drawer space. This is our family home and we do not stay here when you are here.
