Answer to the two most common inquiry questions I get--
**Is the room is available? Yes, If you are able to select the days on my calendar, then those days are available.
**What is the price? On the calendar you will see the price of each day (which changes throughout the busy season and on the weekends). After you select your days, airbnb adds all those days up, and adds their fee. That total is what you pay to airbnb.
** What about the deposit? In two years of hosting I've never had to keep the deposit. The deposit is for lost keys or damages to the room. Fortunately we get nice airbnb guests and never have to use the deposit. You get it back 24 hours after check out.
This is 1 out of 3 bedrooms in the apartment. If you are alone, a couple, or group of friends, this room can accommodate you guys easily! If you are a group of 3-6 people, you are welcome to make space as you see fit. The main bed is big enough to take 2 people easily. The other bed can fit 1 comfortably (squeeze another if you like). The mattress can fit another 1 person. Feel free to be creative or get cozy with your friends and use the room as you like.
When you arrive, you will have your own key to the apartment, to enter and leave whenever you want. Just make sure to lock the apartment door behind you whenever you come in or go out!
There is 1 bathroom shared amongst the 3 bedrooms. I, will be around the house from time to time. If I am away at the time you rent the room, I will have a friend stay in the living room to let you into the apartment, give you keys, and show you around the house! We have a very large kitchen with all of the cooking supplies you would ever need, available for you to use. Please remember to clean up anything you use, after using it!
