Hi there! Please read my listing AND Rules.
My house is located in the quaint village of Kenmore. Guests are welcome to first floor dining room, living room, and kitchen. If coming without a car, you're welcome to store luggage after checkout. If available I may be able to offer pickup/drop-off from the airport for a $5 fee. (Taxi would be $35). Check in time: 2pm weekends. 5pm weekdays, but earlier check-ins are no problem IF no guest checked out that same day.

The space

Your room is a simply-furnished guest room with a double/full size bed (not queen), closet, and dresser. The bathroom will be the guests's private bathroom for the duration of their stay.
Our house comes with some "quirks" of an older house. For example, sections of the hardwood floors creak. A few dents in older wooden doors. In other words, the house is not perfect, but clean and comfortable. Towels provided.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to first floor only: dining room, living room, and kitchen.. NO UNREGISTERED VISITORS ON THE PREMISES.

Interaction with guests

Every situation is different. I'll completely respect your privacy and you'll have your own comfortable space while here. Or if you like, we both might have time to visit during breakfast or whenever. The main thing is that I wish for my guest the same thing that I like when I'm an Airbnb guest. That is: to feel completely comfortable and welcome without any awkwardness.

Other things to note

In the morning, I offer coffee/tea and a simple, light breakfast.

One of our 2 cats is pretty friendly and may try to befriend you. Feel free to pet him or ignore him. If you are allergic or have an aversion to cats, this is their home, so then it would be best to stay elsewhere.

--- IMPORTANT: ONLY REGISTERED GUESTS ARE WELCOME IN THE HOUSE/ON THE PREMISES. (There is a nice coffee shop nearby (SPOT Coffee) if you're looking for a place to meet with friends).

Communication is KEY. --- I am flexible with CHECK-IN times for my space. My preference is to greet guests upon arrival; therefore, I need an estimated time of arrival (ETA). If I'm unavailable, you will be given the code to your private entrance before arrival for SELF CHECK IN. Thank you kindly

--- Quiet hours are from 10pm- 6am.

--- Please turn your bedroom/bathroom/hall lights off when not in use.

--- I really don't want to charge a cleaning fee. So please just be mindful of cleaning up after yourself.

--- Please be quiet outside and low-key with the neighbors. Not everyone understands the concept of Airbnb and how wonderful it is YET. (I didn't)

*** Number 1 rule. Enjoy your stay and my wonderful town!

Karen is so nice! The house is near by some markets and restaurants. The room is clean and quiet. And the breakfast Karen offered to us was delicious and made us feel comfortable. If you want to drive to Niagara Fall, it just takes 25 minutes from here. Of course, cats are so cute as well as quiet!

The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood and walking distance to public transportation. The room was clean and cozy, just as described. It’s at the back of the house so you don’t get disturbed. Karen offered me breakfast and also made sure I had a nice stay. Her two cats were friendly too. Will definitely come back the next time.

Great option for those driving out to see Niagara Falls. If you have your own car, it is definitely worth it to stay here. We really appreciated Karen's communication and her flexibility. She provided us with a door code in the event she was not home when we arrived, but we arrived ahead of schedule and she was home to show us around. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and it was kind of in its own little wing with a private entrance and bathroom. We appreciated the little touches, like water bottles and granola bars for the road, towels and toiletries, and fresh breakfast in the morning. Karen is a friendly and thoughtful host, and I would definitely recommend her home.

Impressive hosting and memorial time with Karen! She drove us from and to the airport at 5$ each. And she also made us two breakfast in the morning! She is nice and friendly and thoughtful! The house is clean and bed is soft. Neighbors are quite and safe! Your best choice to stay here!

This was such a lovely air bnb experience. Karen has a great place with own secure access. In a quiet safe neibourhood She offers a wonderful breakfast that comes with her great personality. She is a great host and I would recommend her place over any in Niagra Falls. Karen knows her city and was very helpful in ensuring that we enjoyed our stay in Buffalo, she offered to keep our luggage in storage for free after we checked out while we enjoyed visiting Niagra Falls for the day. A great host indeed!!!

Hi, I'm Karen. Mother of 2 teenage daughters. Retired from 26 years in the Air Force. Recent graduate of Master's Degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Substitute teacher for Buffalo Public Schools. Lover of off-the-beaten path travel, getting to chat the locals in any town that I am visiting. Current hobbies: Italian language practice, hiking, taking advice from the locals when I travel, touring engineering colleges with my teenage daughter, volunteering for worthy causes.
Future endeavors: Airbnb host and travel tour manager.

I feel that I am a considerate low-maintenace guest, who would treat my host's home how I would want my home to be treated. I'm not a phone addict. I live in the moment.
