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 and Golf Course. See description regarding music lessons taught in the downstairs studio during guest visitations.

The Zen Master Room has its own private bathroom. Enjoy the 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 (upon request)

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 is booked simultaneously at the same location, in which case the house will be shared with other guests. However, guests will be given individual keys for their rooms as well as keys to 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.

Sundays 2:00pm-3:30pm & 6:00pm-7:00pm
Wednesdays 5:00pm-7:30pm

The host is NOT responsible for belongings left at the house after checkout. If the host is willing and able to ship forgotten items out to guests, fees will be due upon request for packaging/shipping plus a $20 handling fee for each item.

This place is clean, comfortable and the location is quiet but still close enough to town to make it conveniently located. Richard is great to communicate with and responded super quickly to all of my questions.

I registered for 2 nights while conducting business in Bloomington. This facility provided economical, clean and comfortable accommodations. The friendly host responded promptly to all messages. I would definitely stay again. Go IU!

Richard's place is simple, quiet, comfortable, and remarkably clean. Just what we needed. Looks like he's done an impressive job of rehabbing the space. And we loved the "shoes off" policy! We'll definitely be back.
