Guest Access

Their own apartment and a large garden with seating & dining areas. Off street parking.

Interaction with Guests

It is always a treat to meet guests at checkin, visit with them in the garden or even share a glass of wine. Alternatively, it is not unusual for guests to check themselves in & out with communications all by text. Although I miss meeting them in person, this method works remarkably well too.
I often travel for work & fun. If I am out of town, there is always a "property manager" available on site.

The Neighborhood

Hyde Park is close to downtown, UT, 6th street and all the other "action". But it is an historic neighborhood one hundred year old homes with large trees and lively gardens; making a quiet get away.

Getting Around

We are 1 block from the 1 or 5 bus routes that go right downtown & run every 10 minutes. We are also on the UT free transit bus.

Getting here from the airport:
Uber is $15-17 and is my prefered way to get from the airport.
Taxis run between $30-35 and is fast.
Supershuttle is a minibus that is shared with 2-3 other peopIe, costs about $15 and is medium slow.
The city bus #101 is only $1 and very slow.
I highly recommend Car2Go - a shared vehicle service as an alternative to renting a car. You can even get them to and from the airport (costs about $10). but you have to sign up in advance.

Other Things to Note

What to expect.
We really want you to have a great stay & go out of our way to make it happen. However we are not a hotel, so there is more chance of unexpected things happening, both good & bad. The apartment is a great value (less than half the price of a hotel in the area), so hopefully that makes up for our short comings.
I try to keep a 5* rating with Airbnb so let me know if anything is not working for you.
