About this listing

This is a great home only a few miles from the IU campus & IU Memorial Stadium. 2 blocks away from city bus route and Cascades Park & Golf Course. See description regarding music lessons.

Spacious and furnished living room and dining room, remodeled kitchen complete with microwave, stove, dishwasher, and full-size refrigerator. Modern washer/dryer on site.

The space

Peaceful back deck, huge fenced-in backyard with a swing and garden plot. The fire pit in the backyard is available for use, including a grill rack.

Guest access

Besides a couple locked storage spaces, the entire house is available for use: kitchen, dining area, back deck, backyard, and living room. Downstairs you can access the laundry room and half-bath.

Interaction with guests

The host may or may not be also staying at the premises and will mostly be doing his own thing around the house, but is readily available if anything is needed.

If the host is absent, a message can be sent through the AirBnb thread and the host will deal with the situation as soon as he is able.

There is also a possibility that another listing located in the same location is booked simultaneously, meaning that the bathroom will be shared with other guests. However, separate keys will be given for the individual rooms and also for the house.

Other things to note

Richard will be teaching music in the studio downstairs and at times it can get loud (drum sets, saxophones, pianos... !) The entire upstairs will still be available during these times.

The room was clean and comfortable, and the back porch offered a relaxing spot to drink coffee or read a book. Richard was responsive and upfront. Would stay again when I'm in town.

The house was clean and decorated homey. Our host(s) were attentive and communicated their coming and goings. I recommend this room/bathroom to all parents coming to see their kids at IU.
