The space

Enjoy old-world luxury in a home that was built in 1910 to last for centuries. This architecturally designed home includes 4 fireplaces, an elegant entry hall and staircase, and many beautiful details. We are happy to walk guests through and give share the history of the house and its former occupants.

One bedroom includes a queen bed and the other a full/double bed. The rooms share a bathroom, with private access from each room. There is an alcove with a desk in one room.

Guest access

Guest will be given a key and may come and go as they please. They are welcome to store food in the refrigerator.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to meet new people, hear about their lives, and share advice about what to do in New Haven. These conversations are typically over coffee in the morning or when guests arrive and settle in. But we also respect people's privacy if they wish to be left alone.

The neighbourhood

The neighborhood is beautiful, full of historic single-family houses with lovely gardens. We have a guide to the nearby homes available for interested guests.

Getting around

Public transportation and the Yale Shuttle are within a couple blocks of our home. Yale and downtown New Haven are about a mile away.

Other things to note

This listing is for the use of 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in a large home. It is not the entire home or apartment. Due to the quirks of the Airbnb listing system, it is posted in the entire home/apt category in order to show that it includes two bedrooms.

There are two steps leading to the bathroom.

I was visiting Yale with my high school son and Jo and Doron were wonderful hosts--welcoming, responsive, friendly but not hovering. They were flexible when we arrived later than expected and had to grab a parking permit and dash! The rooms were great--very comfortable, private, and SO QUIET. What a great night's sleep. A beautiful historic home and lovely hosts--definitely recommend.

Jo and Doron are welcoming hosts to their beautiful home which is situated in a quiet, secluded part of New Haven yet with easy shuttle links to the Yale campus with its many cultural attractions and beautiful buildings. Jo and Doron were helpful and friendly and we were very comfortable with great facilities. Appreciated the cosy warmth of house during an unexpected cold snap! When the sun arrived, we enjoyed the neighbourhood which has lovely, old homes and is close to East Rock Park. Thank you, Jo and Doron

Jo's place is a historic home on a quiet residential neighborhood. The house was unique, clean, well equipped, and hosts welcoming. Our rooms were spacious and beds very comfortable. The house is about 20 min walk to the center of Yale.

My husband and I have lived in New Haven for over 25 years. We stay here because we think it is a great little city, and we enjoy the local theater, art and community.

We travel abroad regularly, and enjoy having visitors to our home.
