This serene room on a peaceful street will restore you and is just a 5 minute walk from cinema and restaurants in Grandin Village and the Roanoke River Greenway. There is a pillow-top queen size bed and recliner in room. Space and equipment for exercise, onsite bikes, an electric car charger and 5 hammocks are available for guest use. We have a small, well-behaved non-shedding dog. We are LGBTQ friendly and super open-minded people in general. Perfect for a couple. Late check-in is fine.

The space

This room is a tranquil oasis with photos of waterfalls and woods. The hammocks in the front yard and other outdoor sitting areas also lend themselves to reflection and calmness. The easy and quick access to the Roanoke River Greenway for walks or bike rides makes this listing unique. Guests are welcome to use the host's bicycles and yoga mats during their visit. The common areas along with the bathroom and kitchen are shared with us and possible one occupant of our other single guest room. We do have a sweet, adorable and well-behaved puppy on the premises. He is a schnoodle so he's hypoallergenic and does not shed. He does his thing outside and he is not a barker. He sleeps in the bedroom with us and does not enter guest bedrooms.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the living room with TV and Direct TV with 220 channels and wireless internet. The living room doubles as exercise area with yoga mats and strap and dumbbells available for use. There is a workstation available to guest and they are allowed to print a limited amount if necessary. They also have access to the front porch and back patio with chiminea and seating areas and hammocks in the yard. Guest may also wash clothes free of charge in the laundry room in the building and borrow bikes for use on the Roanoke River Greenway. There are extra toiletries available incase you forgot something at home. A fully loaded coffee and tea station along with breakfast items available in the kitchen.

Interaction with guests

Interaction with guest will depend on availability of the hosts as well as needs of the guests. We enjoy interacting with our guests but realize that guest needs vary so we respect the need for quiet and privacy of some guests and follow their lead.

Other things to note

There is an electric car charger available for guest use if needed as well as two fully-equipped bicycles. There are two other people living in the other apartments in the building so don't be surprised if you run into them in the outdoor spaces or the building's laundry room.

Just to emphasize that we do have a small dog in the house who is hypoallergenic and does not shed and also is very well-behaved too. He sleeps in our room and he does not enter guest rooms. He also is not a barker. Everyone who meets him falls in love with him. Other guests have really enjoyed having him in the apartment.

Roanoke is surrounded by mountains and hiking trails. Kayaking is popular on nearby rivers as well. Carvins Cove is our favorite. It is the local reservoir surrounded by intricate hiking and mountain bike trails. Kayaks are also available there for exploring the reservoir.

I stayed for 2 nights in Roanoke at this lovely home. Did not meet Truda and Joseph but everything was great. House was clean and conveniently located. Checkin and checkout process was smooth. Breakfast was also provided. Would stay again!

I felt so welcomed at Truda & Joseph's home. Their home is exactly like online and all my expectations were met. Even though my stay was short, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Roanoke.

Truda & Joseph are great hosts! They offered us great suggestions and are so friendly and inspiring! We were there just for 1 night, but we'll be back when we are near! Lovely house, very peaceful, soft sheets that I loved and a good, healthy breakfast. Beautiful neighbourhood too. All in all: highly recommended!

Staying at Truda and Joseph's was a lovely experience for us. The home was clean, comfortable and spacious. Truda and Joseph are warm, lovely hosts. We really had a great time sharing travel stories and getting to know one another. They had great tips for hiking, although our stay was too short to take advantage of the awesome trails near by. The house is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood, only a few minutes drive from downtown. I highly recommend staying here if you can. Also, the dog and bunny were a great addition to our stay! We would definitely come back if we find ourself in Roanoke again.

Truda & Joseph User Profile

Greetings and welcome to Grandin Village, a southern front porch friendly neighborhood where neighbors say good morning to each other and there are no strangers. We genuinely enjoy hosting airbnb guest and introducing them to our historic village.
Or welcome to Truda's solar off the grid beach side eco-retreat (The Solar Turtle) at Salinas Grandes Turtle Sanctuary depending on which airbnb listing you are pursuing. Both places are set up to be zen like sanctuaries from everyday life.
We are firm believers in what we call "THL" (the hammock life). So much so that we have five hammocks available for guests around our house at Grandin Village and another four beachside at the solar eco-casita in Salinas Grandes.
Most mornings, both locations, you will find us nursing our coffee and tea on the front porch while listening to the birds and watching the squirrels, or iguana as the case me be, scampering around the front yard. In the afternoon, you may find Truda meditating in a hammock and Joseph gardening.
We live in and manage the triplex in Roanoke where the "Peaceful Zen Room" and the "Comfy Room in Friendly Household" are located. The rooms are in a three bedroom ground-level apartment. We also manage two other 100+ year old homes with corporate apartments and rooms geared to traveling professionals as well as the beachfront solar eco-casita in Nicaragua. Also, Truda is working with a yoga instructor she connected with through airbnb to put on a Yoga Eco-Retreat at the eco-casita which also involves releasing baby turtles daily Decemb.
We take pride in providing energy efficient homes in lovely neighborhoods close to or in natural areas that are peaceful, comfortable and inviting for tenants and visitors. We work on building a sense of community by regularly hosting community dinners and fireside gatherings on the large back patio of the home that we live in for tenants, neighbors and their friends.
Truda is a very open-minded and well-cultured human being who has been exposed to a lot of different kinds of people and experiences in her lifetime. Not much phases her. She has lived overseas for 20 years in 11 countries and has visited 40+ countries. She speaks Spanish and Portuguese and practices yoga. She suffers from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) so spends a good part of the winter at the beach front eco-casita and then offers it to airbnb guests the rest of the year under the excellent stewardship of a Canadian couple who live on the beach full-time.
Joseph is very hospitable, kind and truly enjoys helping others.
Both of us have a variety of interests. Together we take Tai Chi class weekly and we enjoy being and doing things in the outdoors. Our new interest is our sweet hypoallergenic non-shedding, well-behaved small snoodle puppy Zen who captures everyone's heart. He sleeps in our room and does not enter guests' rooms. He also is not much of a barker and usually shy around new people.
In Roanoke, we try to be available when visitors arrive but we have a system for self orientation and entrance in case we are not. Visitors are welcome to cook and do laundry during their stay. Our home is tidy and comfortable. We believe in helping visitors feel as if they were in their own home during their visit and doing whatever we can to provide a peaceful oasis in our airbnb homes.
Truda and Joseph's airbnb was one of the first approved special exception homestay's in the city and one of a handful that has gone through required safety inspections and certification process.
