The space

All the charm! Thoughtful cooking-related details perfectly placed. Your host is a professional chef and uses the space for decadent dinner parties when it's not being used on Airbnb.

Guest access

You will have an entire studio apartment available to you. The studio is totally private. We live in a 2 bedroom apartment directly above the studio, so we will be accessible to you during your stay if you need assistance.

Interaction with guests

If we are home during your stay, we are happy to be as interactive as you'd like. We will always be available by phone or email should you need anything or have questions. We live in the apartment above this studio, so we will usually be home and available. We are happy to offer you suggestions for restaurants, places of interest, and how to get around town.

Other things to note

There aren't any curtains, but there's nothing across the street except a parking lot. The street can sometimes be noisy (we're in a city, after all), but I offer free fresh ear plugs to all guests.

The bed is low to the ground. It's an extremely comfortable double size futon-style mattress.

The studio is a lovely space, with high ceilings, lots of light, interesting furnishings and decorations, and a very welcoming atmosphere. Onna was an excellent host. She was on site when we arrived to help us get settled in and kept in touch throughout our stay via texts. The property is in an interesting neighborhood that we enjoyed walking through to the restaurant/market (delicious!) a few blocks away that Onna had recommended for breakfastrestaurant/market a few blocks away.

Response from Onna:
