Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Close to downtown and beautiful Riverside Park, this cozy newly remodeled lower level is a more private option in my quiet neighborhood. You’ll love this space because of the privacy, simplicity, and coziness. This space is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families with younger kids.
This space has its own private bath, large TV with Netlix and HBO, and use of two bicycles for getting around.

James was great and gave us a tip for a new Tiki/Thai restaurant 3 blocks away which we loved - thanks James! The place is a 10 minute uber to downtown. We had the entire basement which included a bedroom, living space and bathroom with a big tv, fridge, microwave and coffee. T…
