About this listing

Large private bedroom in my home, perfect for business travelers. It is minutes from I-95, the Merritt Pkwy, Rt. 7 & Metro North trains, Wifi, TV, AC and private parking on premises. Self-serve breakfast & kitchen privileges.
Guests have access to living room with cable TV, kitchen & washer/dryer. Walking distance to East Norwalk train station. No children or pets live here. Very pleasant and quiet. I use the tv in my bedroom so the one in the living room is free for guests.

The space

Apartment is on the first floor. Your large, private bedroom is sunny and on a pleasant residential block, with private parking on the premises. Location is only minutes from the SONO Restaurant area, Metro North train stations, (only 50 min. to NYC!), Routes I-95, the Merritt Parkway and Route 7. It is ideal for business travelers on the go. Fully furnished with desk, chair, good lighting, and ample closet space for you in your room.

Your sheets and towels will be freshly laundered on arrival. There is good sized closet space, a desk, and bureau space and good light for reading in the guest room.

Guest access

In addition to their private room, guests have access to my living room/dining areas (includes TV) as well as fully furnished eat-in kitchen and washer/dryer. There is private parking on the premises, Central air, and Wifi throughout. Apartment is the full first floor of a two family house.

Breakfast is self-serve and I provide eggs, corn flakes, teas, coffee, 2% Lactaid milk, toast and seasonal fruit. Guests may add their own extras. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen. Long term guests are provided with ample refrigerator space and room for their groceries in the kitchen. Short terms guests are offered 2 half shelves in the refrigerator, and more on request. I aim to please.

Kitchen access for COOKING is offered from 7-10am in the morning and 6-8pm at night but extended accommodations can be made on request. Guests must be careful with my things and clean up after themselves in a timely manner. This includes washing their own dishes.

Guests can dine at the kitchen or dining table, but please not in bedroom, on the sofa or lounge chairs as I prefer to avoid unhappy drips on the carpets or upholstery.

I like things neat and clean so reserve the right to withdraw kitchen privileges if house rules are not respected and observed.

A washer & dryer is available for guests to wash their sheets, towels and personal items. Laundry detergent is provided.

Interaction with guests

I will welcome you upon arrival and make sure you have everything you need. Please call or text 45 minutes prior to arrival.

Preferred check-in time is 6pm and check-out time is 10am, but I am willing to do my best to accommodate the schedules of my guests.

I am self employed with an office off-site but sometimes need to work from home so I prefer guests who are in town for professional or personal activities outside the home during the day.

Other things to note

The Metro North train ride to NYC is 50 minutes and runs hourly. The East Norwalk Train Station is in walking distance. Scenic Calf Pasture Beach is a 5 minute drive and a wonderful place to unwind at the end of the work day.
Breakfast is self-serve and I will provide eggs, corn flakes, seasonal fruit, tea, coffee, & 2% Lactaid milk. Extras? please bring on your own.

Dorothy was a fabulous host! She always made sure I was as comfortable as possible, and it was fun to get to know her over my 10-week stay. Her house was within easy walking distance from the Metro North train station. Great experience overall!

Dorothy’s place is delightful, in a quiet suburban neighborhood. South Norwalk train station is nearby, in walking distance, but a car or ride-sharing service makes getting around much easier. I had no trouble arranging rides right away with Lyft. Dorothy is a cheerful and engaging host. There is interesting art throughout the house, a lot of it done by Dorothy herself, which I found added a unique touch.

Dorothy was a fantastic host. The room was cozy, comfortable, private and very accommodating. I plan to stay many more times in the future.

Dorothy is a great and thorough host. She was very generous with her time and conversation. The room is large and spacious, perfect for 2. Everything was neat and tidy. The area is within walking distance of the train station. If you are a motivated walker you can walk to Sono (south norwalk) in about 25 minutes. It would be a great walk in the warmer weather, but we still did it in the cold. We had a wonderful stay and wish we could have said goodbye in person.

I am a full time professional artist and industrial designer, and have been for over 35 years. I recently moved here to CT after 30 years living and working in Manhattan. I loved being in the city but am now enjoying a less hectic lifestyle that affords me more time for cooking, reading, and enjoyment of my new country and seaside landscapes.
I enjoy traveling and meeting new people. I hope to make guests feel welcome and comfortable in my home and enjoy their visit.
