Description

The Space

Welcome budget-minded travelers, outdoor enthusiasts, quiet, considerate, friendly folks! PLEASE, KINDLY TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS DESCRIPTION. IT SHOULD ANSWER MANY OF YOUR QUESTIONS... Offering a lovely, cozy, single-dwelling HOUSE that is designed like an old farm house with the kitchen as the center of the house. It is in a quiet neighborhood. The bedroom was the sun porch of the house. It has windows on 2 sides that look out on a private backyard surrounded by trees. There is partition made up of paneled doors that closes off the sleeping area so you have privacy. There is about 8" above the doors that is open. The closet is outside the sleeping area. You enter the bedroom area through the kitchen and down one step. The bathroom is off the kitchen in a sitting room. NOTE: There are 5 indoor cats, all friendly and quiet except at feeding time, and a small 20 pound dog who is very friendly. If you have allergies to pets, this is not a good place to stay. But if you love pets, you will love these 4-legged characters. BEDROOM: Comfy, full size, double bed, typically for single individuals due to space and size of bed. However, two can sleep well, depending on your size and needs, I accept $30 add'l cost per person per night. Small flat screen TV in room where you can play DVDs or use it for gaming. WiFi is available for your laptop. This room was originally a sun porch, as mentioned above, converted to a bedroom for guests so it is bright and cheerful with windows on 2 walls facing the side and back of the house. When you look out of the windows, it feels like you're looking out of a tree house because you are one story above the yard. In order to maintain a way to get to the deck and maintain your privacy, there is a partition of bi-fold doors (which can be seen in one of the photos). The sleeping area on one side of the partition is almost 8 ft deep x 10 ft wide, with a closet outside the sleep area. ADDITIONAL GUESTS: Sorry, there isn't room at this time for a third guest. BATHROOM: SHARED WITH HOST (and the occasional add'l guest(s). No private bathroom facilities are available. Shelf available for personal toiletries. FRESH TOWELS/LINENS PROVIDED. Guests who stay for more than 1 night will use same bed linens. Stays that exceed a week will have their linens laundered. **Guest(s) may use the shampoo, shower wash and soap. **SORRY, no LAUNDRY facilities are available for stays that are less than 7 days. KINDLY READ/HONOR THE "HOUSE RULES" & "HOUSE MANUAL". Just some basic, simple requests are stated. Airbnb provides these details also on the confirmed ITINERARY sent to each guest. Please take the time to read it thoroughly, I cannot take responsibility for you in that realm. EAT-IN KITCHEN has all the amenities – refrigerator, stove/oven, extra cabinet space, shelf in fridge, toaster oven, coffeemaker, great selection of utensils, microwave, dishwasher. Host offers some teas, and coffee. If you have a preference, bring your own preferred morning beverage and use the coffeemaker! THE DRIVEWAY is a slope downward below street level. It, at first may feel a bit daunting, but once you've driven it, you'll see that it isn't bad at all. I've lived here for 5 years and don't even think about it. Because the house is on a curvy road, there is a blind spot on one side of the driveway. Once I tell you the "secret" of how to make sure there is no oncoming traffic from that side when you exit the driveway, you will find getting out of the driveway easy. OTHER CONVENIENCES: High speed internet available. Sorry, no computer available. Living room has a 32" flat-panel TV. If you want to bring/rent DVDs to watch, that’s fine with me. If you want to use the living room TV instead of in the bedroom, please check with me to be sure I have nothing scheduled for that time frame. ADD'L PETS? Sorry, cannot accept add'l guest pets -- although I might consider, if pet is small and can be kept in the room. There would be an add'l fee and pet deposit. NEARBY: The house is on a well traveled “country” road north of downtown Danbury. Restaurants, shopping, hospital parks, and public beach and boat ramp (if you have a boat with you) (Candlewood Town Park) are less than a 1/2 mile away. Hiking trails are about 10 minutes away. The house is 5 minutes from the hospital and Western Connecticut State University. It's very easy to get around this town and there are a lot of outdoor activities in the Fall, Spring and Summer months! CHECK OUT: Check out is 11 am. Pleased to meet your acquaintance!! – Shelley

Interaction with Guests

I'm self-employed and tend to be in and out throughout day and eves. When I'm here, I'm happy to chat w/ the guest(s) and share experiences, or help them with where to go and what to do. Happy to be at your disposal.

The Neighborhood

Quiet residential neighborhood in north Danbury. Close to trails/parks. House is surrounded by woods on 3 sides. It is a private, park like setting, There is a large deck w/ table and chairs and a lounge chair. Sometimes in the morning or evening you can see deer grazing in the backyard from the bedroom window. My home is about 3 miles from downtown Danbury and WCSU downtown campus

Getting Around

Having a car s critical to getting around. Danbury has a bus system but I never use it. It isn't very convenient to use. The closest bus stop is about a mile away. Some guests have used Uber.

Other Things to Note

NOTE: There is a security system and after you make your reservations, You will find out the code for the alarm and how to use it after registration. PARKING: Guests can park in the driveway. The driveway is a steep slope down from the street to the base of the front yard, next to the house. At first it may seem intimidating, but it is really pretty easy to maneuver.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
