Other things to note

Just so you know, this is not a full-time rental. It's the house that my kids and I live in. As such, there will be clothes in the drawers and closets, food in the fridge, etc. I try to keep it as clean as I can for you!

I mention clean a few times in the listing :) I do my best - beds and towels will be fresh, bathroom scrubbed, surfaces wiped, floors mopped, rugs vacuumed, etc. However, if you are someone who will be checking the corners of the baseboards or the dust on the top of door frames, you may be unsatisfied. Most people have been happy :)

We had such an incredible time and Robert (Bob) was beyond accommodating. The home is cozy and full of fun surprises, from the guitars to the speaker system, to everything being thoughtfully ready for use (we loved the instructions provided on the appliances). It was easy to feel welcome upon arrival, greeted by a plate of cookies, fruit, and one of the most thorough (but concise) listings of how to use everything in the house, from the entertainment system to the automatic faucet to the porch bbq. This is not a fancy home, but it is one of the most down-to-earth, relaxed, and welcoming - it was perfect for our July 4 holiday weekend!

Roberts place was perfect for us! Stayed with a toddler and an infant and there was plenty of space and because he has kids, the house was all set up for kids! Robert was great and very accommodating. Would defiantly stay here again.

Robert is a very genuine and conscientious host. You definitely feel looked after. His place really captures that college town and kitschy Ithaca feel, while being way nicer than any house you would have lived in while you were in college. That being said the Christmas lights really took us all back. It's located on a really calming tree lined street. We walked to quite a few restaurants and the commons. If you like running you can hit the Cayuga waterfront trail pretty quickly which is a nice traffic free way up to the lake. My Friends and I bonded over the sound system and Karaoke (And the confusing shower controls, but honestly who doesn’t get confused by other people’s showers.) We used this place for winery/hiking/race at Watkins Glen trip we planned at the last minute (a bit different than most other reviews you’ll see) So while the focus of our trip revolved around Seneca, the location worked out pretty well for us and we benefited from the density of restaurants and shops by being in a small city.

Robert was an excellent host. He was extremely responsive and thoughtful to make sure our entire experience was streamlined and that our stay was as smooth as possible. He left a very detailed set of instructions for where all the amenities and what was available to us, which was essentially the entire house. The entertainment system was an amazing setup and definitely contributed to a great stay. The house fit 8 of extremely comfortably and allowed us access to all of downtown Ithaca and the farmers market by foot.

Bob sent us messages of how to get into the house, and ways to contacts him. We all love the house, it has almost everything and even some entertainments systems like karaoke. (Very thoughtful!) Bob is really helpful and will reply immediately. We had a great time there and it's nice to chill at night in the house. The neighborhood is very quiet and it's walkable to the downtown commons (restaurants and stores), great location! p.s. a few of us took awhile to find out how to use the shower head, you supposed to pull down the ring of the tub spout. (All the information was on a note Bob provided in the house, but we still struggle lol)

Robert was great, easy to reach and very helpful. We were there for our daughter's graduation and his house was in a perfect location. We did not have any trouble with parking. His house was exactly as listed, clean, charming and with great amenities. We were worried about the one bathroom, but it worked out fine. We would highly recommend it to others.

Roberts home was very comfortable and welcoming. He left great written instructions on how to use everything in the house. The house is in a great location. We took frequent walks with the children to close by stores and restaurants.

I live in Ithaca, NY. I have twin 5-year old daughters who live with me half of the time. I love to travel and I'm very happy to have found AirBnb, both to find places to stay and to have an easygoing and relaxed place for others to stay!
