This is a very beautiful, comfortable home, full of warm colours and artwork. Excellent mattress, well equipped kitchen, great shower; but most of all an overall atmosphere of peace and tranquility that makes it a really special place to stay. And the private garden is a delightful bonus.The neighbourhood is residential, with a great coffee shop about five minutes walk away, and then all the fun of central Ithaca just 15 minutes walk.

My parents stayed here while visiting me in Ithaca (I'm a student, so my own space is limited)- they couldn't stop talking about how lovely the apartment is, how conveniently located it is, and how wonderful Helena and Michael are! They'll be back!

The owners were proactive in making sure we would check in easily. We ended up arriving later than planned but they happily accommodated our timing. Helena met us on our arrival and immediately made us feel comfortable. This is the downstairs level of their home with a beautiful private entrance and yard. The home was clean, very comfortable and quiet. We also got to see Helena's small art gallery that is on her property - beautiful work. Thank you!

The rental is a full-floor apartment, in the first floor of a house. There are a kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom, and bedroom. We loved the original art and New Age, multicultural decor. We felt like we shared the home and vision of a true artist. The house is in a residential area in downtown Ithaca. It is not walkable to Cornell unless you're ready to climb a long, steep hill. The Ithaca Falls are an easy walk and very impressive.
