Interaction with guests

I am friendly and can certainly offer a recommendation for a local watering hole, but I recognize the importance of giving my guests plenty of privacy.

Other things to note

I like my apartment to be clean, friendly, and peaceful. I do not smoke or use drugs, though I do occasionally drink socially. I am not interested in sharing my space with anyone who smokes, uses drugs, or drinks heavily.

Please be respectful of the space, belongings, and neighbors. No additional overnight guests who are not on original reservation. No food in the bedroom, please. I have put a lot of work into creating a little sanctuary that I love to share. Thus far, I have had great luck with subletters and guests. It has given me an opportunity to meet wonderful people who I wouldn't have been able to otherwise. Their gentle use of the space has allowed others to continue to enjoy it and I hope you will, too.

Lara's apartment is convenient and clean. She's an excellent host that she even provides me a one-time-use toothbrush that has saved my life as I forgot to bring my own.

Lara's apartment is very close to the train station, restaurants, and Rutgers College Ave campus. The space is sufficient for one person, and I was able to get a lot of work done while staying there. Lara is very easy going and pleasant.

I traveled to New Brunswick for a work trip at Rutgers University. Lara's place is conveniently located in a diverse, walkable neighborhood with plenty of food options nearby. Her apartment is across the street from a New Brunswick/Rutgers bus stop and a New Jersey Transit bus stop. It's also less than a 10 minute walk from the New Jersey Transit rail stop in New Brunswick. Her apartment was very clean, cozy, and quiet. The hospital is across the street, so light sleepers, such as myself, will hear the occasional ambulance at night. It didn't bother me too much. The bedroom had a closet, a small table, and a dresser, which was perfect for my weeklong stay. Lara was very warm and welcoming. I enjoyed getting to know her, and we even survived the great "blizzard" of 2017 together. I would definitely stay with her in the future!

I stayed at Lara's place for a work related trip. The location is convenient and central in New Brunswick and close to places for breakfast, Rutgers Campus and bus system. Although I had limited encounters with Lara the coordination went smooth. Her place is clean and tidy. Would stay again in the future.

Lara is very friendly and approachable. It was like having a great roommate. We also went on a small trip to asbury park, have a tour around that neighborhood with some historical introduction, and a great dinner. I forgot to bring some things and she was so kind that she lent me some. The kitchen, bedroom, and the bathroom were clean. If you are looking for some place to stay in New Jersey downtown, I highly recommend this place. It's close to everything, supermarket, great restaurant, and train station. Also, if you like to have some company during your stay and also have some privacy for yourself at the same time. This is the best choice. This is definitely my best stay of Airbnb ever!

I am a young professional who has had the privilege of traveling all over the world. I have been welcomed into the homes of wonderful, interesting, open people and now enjoy returning the favor to others. I've often said that I've left little pieces of myself in my favorite places, including New Orleans, Savannah, Prague, and Venice. If you look closely, you'll see that I've brought little pieces of them back with me and stashed them about my home.
