About this listing
Cozy, private room in a home with yard and front porch. walking distance to downtown Champaign, very close to multiple bus lines. We are a couple in our 20s with a dog and four cats. Shared bathroom and living spaces. Free coffee, meals by request.
We would love to share our beautiful home with you. The house is located in downtown Champaign, just walking distance from excellent local restaurants, shops, and bars. Our guest bedroom is private, super comfortable and welcoming. As hosts, we want to make your stay in Champaign as spectacular as it can be. We are available at your convenience, and are as hands-off or involved as you would like. Considering we have 4 cats and 1 dog, we keep things very clean for your (and our) comfort. This is one big happy family, and we can't wait to share it with you!
Guests are welcome to all shared living spaces throughout their stay. Kitchen is available as well, and home-cooked meals may be provided for a reasonable fee if arranged in advance.
Interaction with guests
We are available for as much or as little interaction as our guests would like. We can always be reached by cellphone for any questions or recommendations for places around the area.
We live in a very cute and conveniently located neighborhood. The bars, local music venues, and restaurants downtown are only a 10-15 minute walk away. We live within a five minute walking distance to West Side Park, which is a huge beautiful park downtown with a gorgeous fountain, playgrounds/swings, and lots of big trees and green grass to lounge in.
We are very close to the Champaign Bus/Train Station. If you need a ride, we are happy to arrange for one of us to pick you up. Otherwise, it's about a 20 minute walk. (We have even picked up our guests after midnight! Anything to help your stay!)
Parking is always available outside on the street. We also have Uber rideshare in Champaign, it's a very good option for getting somewhere quick and cheap.
Other things to note
We have four cats and a dog. Our dog, Jase, is very friendly but he is anxious around new people at first. Once he is properly introduced to you, you will be his new best friend.
If you love pets, this is the place for you. :)
Note: We have been getting many inquiries for long term bookings, over a month or longer. We dont usually accept long term bookings as we are not looking for roommates, we are just looking to host folks coming into town to visit for a short period of time. Thank you for understanding.
