The SpaceI am less than a mile from Downtown and just on the west side of the river. There is a bus stop a block away, and it is walking distance to restaurants, local night life, the zoo. The neighborhood hit, The Tip Top, has local and national bands, cheap drinks, and is a few hundred feet away. I can set-up three single beds, and have an air mattress if you need more. The apartment is yours for the length of the stay. There is free wireless, and I can accommodate other requests if needed. I like to hear about why you are in town, and know Grand Rapids very well if you need suggestions for fun. I will stay out of your hair after the initial meeting, so you can enjoy our lovely city too :-) Guest AccessThere is a front door with a keypad. Please verify with me that you have the correct address and code at least 24 hours prior to your arrival. I have more than one apartment at this location. My preference is that guests do not "explore" the building and/or disturb others during their stay. Interaction with GuestsI like to say hi and hear about your trip. I am here to help and make it a pleasant experience - feel free to ask questions, but I won't be in your business or nosey. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood gets feisty in the summertime as you might expect near downtown. Please understand this is a diverse and mostly rental community just outside of downtown. There are no cul de sacs or white picket fences. The only way to get closer to downtown is to get a hotel. Getting AroundI am on a bus line, and downtown isn't bad if you like walking. I have a few bikes in nicer weather if requested. G.R. has Uber, bike taxis, regular taxis, and I am happy to point the way to great places. Other Things to NoteThere have been a couple picky reviews from first time users. This is a place to sleep without HBO or mints on the pillows. I enjoy providing a place for guests traveling on a budget.

Other Things to Note*Grand Rapids Short Term Rental Ordinance: Please note the license number at the top of the page indicates we are legally licensed by the City of Grand Rapids through a newly created Short Term Rental Ordinance.

A note to our past guests: this new ordinance also limits Airbnb hosts to one room and a maximum of two adults. We regretfully are unable to rent our additional two rooms at this time.

The SpaceBedroom is on the second floor with two windows, so there is a lot of natural light. The bed is a full size bed. The room also has a large closet for hanging clothes and an empty dresser for storage. I have central air conditioning in the summer time and central heat in the winter. Sometimes the house is cold in the winter (old house, bad insulation), so the room also comes equipped with a space heater and and extra quilt. Also sometimes the doors stick, especially in the summer months when the wood swells. Bathroom is semi-shared; I mostly use the bathroom downstairs so the upstairs bathroom is largely for guest use only. I provide towels, but no soap or shampoo - you'll need to bring your own toiletries. Of course, if you forget something we certainly can work something out! There are three cats that live on the premises - I try very hard to keep up with the cat hair, but this is probably not a place for someone with allergies. I keep the guest room door closed to keep it as pet hair free as humanly possible. There is off street parking available and it is easy to find a place; the spots are unmetered. In the winter (Nov-Mar), opposite side snow-plowing rules apply and you'll need to move your car back and forth across the street in the evenings. Spots are ample so this is usually not a big deal - I do it every day! I do not provide breakfast, but I do provide self service tea and coffee in the kitchen. Guest AccessGuests have access to the living room, kitchen, dining room, patio and both bathrooms. Washer/Dryer located in the basement and is free. Basically, you have access to the entire house except for my bedroom and office (which are connected). Interaction with GuestsI will interact with my guests as much as they would like; I'm happy to give recommendations and chats, or I'm also happy to leave people alone. There is plenty of space in the house! I rented part of my apartment when I lived in New York City for the better part of a year on AirBnb and I enjoyed getting to meet new and interesting people. The NeighborhoodHeritage Hill is one of the historic districts in Grand Rapids. The houses date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. It's a unique area and many of the houses are architecturally different from one another; there is a self-guided walking tour of the area, and we have a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (tours Tuesday and Sunday)! I'm biased, but this is my favorite area of Grand Rapids. Getting AroundThere isn't a lot of public transportation in Grand Rapids, but my house is very near a bus stop. Also, cabs and Ubers from downtown are cheap - during non-surge pricing, an Uber from anywhere downtown is usually $5-7. Other Things to NoteLong term guests are welcome! Please note that due to my travel schedule, I am only accepting long term guests May-August. Many people come to Grand Rapids for the beer culture, so here are the distances from my house to each of the local breweries: B.O.B.'s Brewing: 1.1mi Brewery Vivant: 0.9 mi Elk Brewing: 1 mi Founders: 1.5 mi Harmony Brewing Co: 1.7 mi Hideout Brewing Co: 5.3 mi HopCat (beer bar & they brew some of their own): 1 mi The Mitten Brewing Co: 2.4 mi Perrin Brewing Co: 8.6 mi There are also two distilleries: Flat Landers: 0.6 mi Long Road Distillers: 2.4 mi

The SpaceThe apartment is a one bedroom unit in a three unit house built in 1890. It is recently updated with new appliances and a comfortable memory foam mattress. For groups larger than two people there is an air mattress. It is a simple, clean apartment in a great location for exploring Grand Rapids. The street is a densely populated city environment in a historic district. There is a window unit AC in the bedroom that cools the place very nicely in the summer. Note: there is no TV! But there is wi-fi, feel free to stream Netflix on your iPad or phone or laptop. This apartment is very close to everything downtown. Walk to the Medical Mile, breweries, museums, colleges, restaurants, and bars! A great deal for this location! Hotels downtown book up very quickly and are difficult to find under $200 per night. During Art Prize they are $400.. Parking is available free on the street. You may get lucky and find parking right in front of the house, or you may have to go around the block. I have always found parking within a block of the house every time I am there. The most ideal way to go downtown is to park your car and then walk and Uber in inclement weather. Then when you arrive downtown you won't have to pay for parking. Guest AccessYou will have access to the apartment through the front entry way. You will notice as you enter that the washer and dryer are in the foyer. There was no other place in this old house to put them! I am constantly doing laundry with people coming and going so there will be sheets and towels in the foyer being washed. There really is no other place to put them, so hopefully this won't bother you. Interaction with GuestsPlease message me if you need help with anything. I'll be available by text or call anytime. The NeighborhoodHeritage Hill is the largest historical residential district in the United States and has a wonderful collection of beautiful old homes. The neighborhood is close to all the downtown action and is super walkable! There are great restaurants and cafes and shopping. A great deal to stay downtown! Downtown hotels are usually booked on the weekend and are over $200 a night. Getting AroundA walkable neighborhood and close to bus lines. Also VERY short Uber or Lyft ride to downtown and theaters, concert venues, restaurants, etc! Leave your car parked here and just walk or Uber downtown. It's the easiest way to get around. Other Things to NoteThis is a downstairs apartment so you will hear people upstairs walking about and such.
