The space

Rent my guest room! It's small, clean, modern, and private. You'll have access to your own bathroom, plus our kitchen, gardens, and shared living space downstairs.

The house is very energy efficient! It has solar electric and solar hot water panels on the roof to offset most energy needs. Additionally, its well insulated, and surrounded by flower and veggie garden beds in the spring and summer, and 6 hens who provide us with fresh, local eggs year-round. I strive live as sustainably as possible without sacrificing comfort or style. Inside, the house is full of art and other interesting details. Its a modern style house, built in 1997 by the Yale School of Architecture. The house has cork and bamboo floors, throughout, an open floor-plan, and a clean, yet funky aesthetic.

The house is a 15 minute walk to downtown New Haven, with all the shops, restaurants, theaters, and bars. We're located in a residential neighborhood, close to parks and the hospitals, convenience stores, and we're on the bus line.

David and Emily made me feel really welcome, and I had a wonderful stay! The room is beautiful. The hosts were there to greet me when I arrived, and were really helpful in terms of recommending restaurants and offering tips to help get around town.

Emily's home was great, we really enjoyed staying at her home for the night. She gave us some recommendations for food places near by which was great. Emily was very hospitable from the moment we walked into her door. I would defiantly stay there again if I am in the area!

I regretfully was only here for a quick visit, but it was a lovely space; and the pugs also cheered me up by coming to visit when I was stuck doing some last-minute work in my room.
