The SpaceI am pleased to offer a simple, comfortable retreat for the budget-conscious, pet-loving traveler!
Make yourself at home in this cute, 1950's bungalow. You will have a private room with an adjacent, shared bath. Your room is furnished with a QUEEN sized bed, desk with basic office supplies, a clothing rack with plenty of hangers, a clothes iron, and hair dryer.
One extra guest is allowed with a $10/night additional guest fee. I will set up a queen- sized air mattress in the living room. It is brand new and very comfortable.
The house has central air conditioning and heat. The room itself has a ceiling fan and 2 windows with secure locks. There is a table fan and a space heater stored above the bed if you need the room extra cool or warm.
The bathroom has a tub/shower and is only shared with me. Towels, shampoo and soap are provided, as well as some extra toiletries if you need them. You will have a dedicated basket in the rack above the toilet to store your things.
Guests are welcome to watch TV (basic cable and Netflix/Amazon Video/Youtube/Crackle), sit at the table, hang on the couch, cook, play the keyboard, and use the backyard. The only area that's off limits is my room. Guest AccessGuests will be given a key to come and go as desired. Please arrange a check-in time with me, since I'd like to be able to greet you and facilitate introduction of pets if you are bringing a critter. Street parking is available directly in front of the house (please do not block the mailbox or else my mail person leaves me passive aggressive notes on my mail). Interaction with GuestsGuests can call or text me anytime with questions or concerns.
I'm happy to chat, give directions, recommend places to eat, etc. I spend most of my time studying so if you want privacy, you've got it. The NeighborhoodMy home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood.
The house is within walking distance to a gas station/convenience store, Subway, Dominos pizza, Big D's Burger Shack, K's Nail Salon, and Crispy Cutz Barber Shop.
About 0.3 miles farther up the road you'll find La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant, RC McGraw's Bar and Grill, Happy Valley Chinese Food, Paradise Donuts, Dollar General, Beer Goggles liquor store, and Bubble Wash car wash.
About 2 miles south you'll find big chain stores like Walmart, Staples, Ace Hardware, Bed Bath and Beyond, and many restaurants. There are 2 supermarkets and a shopping mall all in the same area.
The house is only a 10 min drive to Tuttle Creek State Park that offers nature trails, fishing, kayaking, disc golf, a shooting range, picnic tables, and lots more.
The Konza prairie is just 10 miles south of here! Enjoy a walk through the tallgrass in one of the last remaining, untouched prairie lands in the United States. You might even see bison! Getting AroundTaxi
Uber (rideshare service)
I may be able to give you a lift somewhere, just let me know what your plans are for the day. Other Things to NoteMust love animals! I have 1 dog (rat terrier) and 1 cat. I also foster animals for the Riley County Humane Society, so I could have an additional dog, cat, or caged critter at any time. As of 9/2016 I have just one foster animal; a bearded dragon named Speedy (caged). If you'd like to know the current animal occupants before booking, just send me a message!
Your pets are WELCOME, as long as they don't eat my cat or harass my dog.
I try very hard to keep a tidy house, but if you are allergic to animal fur or can't tolerate getting some fur on your clothes, I'm afraid my place is not for you. My animals are kept out of your room the day before your arrival, and you can choose whether or not you want them to visit you during your stay.
