The best thing: two cuddly cats who you can invite to snuggle with you. Kate's son was super friendly and welcoming when I arrived but not overbearing, so I felt I had a good contact person just in case. The neighborhood does not seem to invite night-time strolls by females witho…

Kate was super responsive and helpful even though she was in Philadelphia during the stay. The home and room were just the photos and description. Keep in mind that your only paying ~ $30/night... among the least expensive rooms for rent in Cedar Rapids... so don’t expect Fou…

The house is really cute and quirky, and the bedroom was comfortable. I also ended up being sick the entire time and it was great to have such a quiet, secluded space to myself to recover. This a good and affordable place to stay in Cedar Rapids.

Kate was great, stayed for over 2 months and never had an issue. She was thoughtful and quick to respond to any inquiry I had over my stay. Will definitely return if I end up back in Cedar Rapids in the future!

The public spaces of the house were fine, but the bedroom is not nice. If you feel like reliving your student days, this is just the ticket. It's a crappy rental with mysterious stains on the carpet, broken blinds and burnt out light bulbs. The shower is not in good shape. And th…

Response from Kate:
Thanks for your feedback, Joel, and I'm sorry your experience wasn't up to par. I asked if things were OK while you were still there, but didn't receive a response. For potential future guests: Joel was our first Airbnb guest, and my college-age son lives at this home while I have started my career as a professor in Philadelphia. The room itself has a single bed and is for guests only (no one else stays in it) and has in the past been rented out for months at a time with no problem. The house is clean, even though the house is old (1892) and the bathroom/shower is not brand new (but it is clean). I raised three boys as a single parent in the house and have had long-term renters in the room, so yes, they've spilled pop on the carpet and broken part of a blind here and there. I usually leave a lightbulb or two in unscrewed to save on electricity, but I can easily have my son bring a new one in if that is an issue. And there are two cats, but no one has ever complained of a smell - if it seems like it would be or is an issue, please let me know. Just to be clear - this is a home in an old neighborhood in Cedar Rapids - it is within walking distance to Coe College and a short drive to Mt. Mercy University. You are staying with my college-age son who yes, is a student. If you are looking for cheap accommodations, that is what I offer! Look at the pictures and if you have questions or concerns, let me know! Thanks!
