The Space

Bella Notte is an old Tudor Mansion in North Avondale about four blocks from Xavier University. The home has two central air conditioning units and each bedroom has a private bath, but two of the bedrooms can share an adjoining bath to become a 2BR suite for convenient family use.

Another bedroom is used as an exercise room featuring a computerized recumbent bike with a display of simulated bike trails and some free weights to work out on the mat.

Two bedrooms are occupied by the owner and used as an office.

Since Air BnB requires separate listings for each room there are several listings, one for each available room. Be sure to check all the calenders for availability. For your convenience all rooms are pictured in each listing to aid in your decision.

All rooms have individually keyed privacy locks for your security and a wireless network gets you on the internet. Every room has a desk that will accommodate a laptop. Televisions are not supplied in the rooms but DIRECTV and Netflix may be watched in the den, and DVDs are available on loan from an extensive collection that you may take to your room and watch on your laptop. Three of the rooms have a shower in the bath, two have a tub as well. One room has no shower but features a jacuzzi. Also there is a separate bath off the exercise room and another on the first floor close to all the dining areas for your convenience.

This listing is for the Southwest room. It is very spacious and gets good light all day long. The room features a small desk and a large armoire not pictured in the photographs. The private bath features a shower with seven shower heads, but no bathtub.

Some rooms feature a CD player or an iPod player to listen to music. The entire house and patio is a non-smoking area. We do not accept pets or small children at this time. We have a gentle cat in the house, so if you are allergic to cats, this is not the place for you. All rooms feature Queen size beds except one, the Gold room, which is a full.

There is a 24/7 coffee station and a mini-fridge centrally located on the 2nd floor available to all the rooms. The mini-fridge is stocked with complimentary, cold bottled water and the single serve coffee station, also complimentary, features regular, decaf, espresso and flavored coffees.

There are four areas where breakfast can be served, The dining room seats ten. The sunny breakfast nook seats four. The solarium seats six and the patio seats four.

The house boasts very large rooms and has multiple dens. The "man cave" features a billiard table, poker table and a backgammon table. Additional dens are a TV room on the first floor, the solarium and a music room on the third floor.

Our kitchen is large and the menu features over three dozen exciting offerings for breakfast including juices, teas, coffee, espresso, lattes and cappuccinos. Our goal is to provide you a healthy and creative start to each day. We will make every effort to accommodate your special requirements, such as food allergies or simply just likes and dislikes.

Street parking is abundant in a safe neighborhood where residents walk their dogs and jog at all hours. Off street parking can accommodate up to four cars.

Downtown is about 5 miles away. UC, the hospitals and the zoo are just a couple miles. Xavier is about 5 blocks. The bus stops with frequency a scant block away. Many fine restaurants exist in the Hyde Park area, which is about 2 miles from our location as well as a few in Norwood and in St. Bernard, both just a little over a mile. The best mall shopping is in Kenwood, about six miles away but Hyde Park boasts many fine shops and malls as well. We are centrally located with easy access to both I71 and I75 as well as 562 known locally as the Norwood Lateral. There are several easy to follow surface roads that lead to the main areas of the city and downtown as well, that can get you there without any traffic, any time of day or night in just minutes. The airport, which is in Kentucky is about 30 miles away but if you want to get a better airfare you can fly into Dayton, a 50 minute drive.

Special arrangements can be made for your special needs, so be sure to ask when you make your initial inquiry.
