Second floor studio apartment in two story home in the heart of Bloomington. Space is entirely self-sufficient with private entrance. Three blocks from Bryan Park, this peaceful neighborhood of Elm Heights is within short walking distance of downtown and campus. Pets are welcome, but there is a pet fee.

The space
The space i am offering is comfortable, private and full of art (some that i make out of concrete and some by other talented folks) with vintage/modern decor. It is a renovated second story area in a home originally built in 1911 in the historic Elm Heights neighborhood.

It is our home and we love it, and hope that you love it as much as us.

Where you’ll be

Bloomington, Indiana, United States

Elm Heights occupies the sweet spot of central Bloomington. It is so close to so much, yet still manages to be very quite and peaceful. The neighborhood is a nice mix of mostly single families, IU faculty, retirees, and some college students.

There are two grocery stores about 7 blocks away (SaharaMart is an alternative grocery store focusing on local/ethnic/organic foodstuffs. And Kroger is a bigger and less expensive standard grocery). Both are an easy walk just down 2nd street.

Bryan Park (with tennis courts, swimming pool, ball diamonds, jungle gyms, running track, volleyball/basketball courts, etc.) is about 3 blocks south. In the summertime you may encounter anything from "Music in the Park" to "The annual New Belgium Brewing's Clips Beer and Film Tour" there.

All the action of downtown, which includes the many ethnic restaurants on 4th Street and the Kirkwood Village as well as the downtown square) are only about 6-7 blocks north.

Indiana University is also a short walk away. In only 6 blocks you will be at the southern edge of campus.

I am a mellow dad; patient, resourceful and self motivated. I love exploring and all the new experiences that come along with it; meeting new people, broadening my understanding of the world, and just seeing all that's out there. I love to eat. If i had my dream job it would probably be similar to that of that Anthony Bourdain fella who travels the world eating weird things.
Myself and my family of three live here in Bloomington and we can't wait to share our home with you.

During your stay

The space is separate from the rest of the home so interaction can be very little. But I'm never opposed to getting to know new people. Most of my best Airbnb experiences have involved at least a bit of chatting with my guests/hosts. If you need anything you will have my number and i expect to receive calls.
