This historic Allentown home was built in the early 1800's and is nestled on a quaint street in the heart of the historic Allentown district in Buffalo. A stone's through away from some of Buffalo's tastiest restaurants and most popular nightlife. The house itself is one of the oldest homes in the city. I am slowly making improvements. The apartment is a spacious and tastefully decorated 1+ bedroom and features tons of natural light, a deck off the bedroom and a bonus office space. The bedroom has a queen sized bed. The kitchen boasts two skylights and has all the essentials including a newer fridge, gas stove and microwave.
Guests will have the entire upstairs apartment, internet access, a television with a roku box and dvd player and get the added benefit of staying in the heart of historic Allentown. I also have two bikes available for guests to use upon request (in advance please).
I live in the lower apartment and am available to help get guests settled in and even show them around town or offer some insider information to out of town guests if desired.
This home is close to everything! Allentown offers some of the best bars and restaurants around! Other attractions include Kleinhan's (Home of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra), Shea's Performing Arts Theater, the medical campus, boutiques, and many independent art galleries and antique shops. The Elmwood Village is right down the road, downtown is a 15 minute walk, 5 minutes from the Canadian border and Niagara Falls is a 20 minute drive!
The house is close to several bus lines and within walking distance of the city's single subway. There is no off-street parking. However on-street parking is available throughout the neighborhood.
I did set a check-in time for 4pm and a check-out time for 11am, however these can be flexible in certain situations especially on the weekends. Please let me know in advance if you have special check in or check out requests.
I am best reached by phone, text message, or through airbnb messages. E-mail is not checked as often.
Please be respectful of the house and the neighborhood. No smoking inside. Pets allowed with prior approval only.
I had a wonderful time staying in Julia's apartment. The place is comfy and near everything you could want. Julia was helpful and got back to me right away when I had questions. All in all I had a wonderful 2 week stay with no complaints!
I do believe there is a reason why airbnb is so successful and popular, it is because of property owners like Julia and the accommodations they offer.Julia's apartment was exactly as described and pictures with some added bonuses such as skylights throughout the apartment. In addition there was a cheerful fully equipped kitchen, the rest of the apartment was also nicely furnished in a tasteful way. The neighborhood is very walkable as well as bikeable and a person wouldn't have to drive if they didn't want to with many restaurants well within walking distance.Julia was very helpful and flexible upon my arrival as well as departure and always available and friendly.......... Overall a great experience I would recommend to anyone
I get airbnb primarily to save money. When I pay less than a hotel room my expectations aren't high. Just a bed and bathroom are enough for me. Julia's apartment was anything but just a bed and bathroom. There is so much space. Full kitchen, living room, study. And it was gorgeous.
Julia herself was very helpful. When I was just getting there she made sure I knew where everything was. She even left several brochures in the apartment so I would know what was happening and where to go in town.
I had a great experience here and I recommend this place.
Had a great time at Julia's, she's extremely nice, gracious and welcoming, will definitely visit again.
Highly recommended. Thank you for a great stay. :)
Julia's place was terrific! The location was perfect -- right in the area you'd want to be when visiting Buffalo. The apartment was delightful, cozy, comfortable, and clean. The place was so tastefully furnished, large, and spacious. There's a nice study in addition to the one bedroom that was perfect for reading and working. I loved Julia's recommendations for going out -- Betty's, Merge, and 5 points bakery were all great. Julia was kind, warm, and very accommodating. I felt right at home. This is a great place to stay while in Buffalo. I'm coming back for sure.
Julia was exceptional at making us feel welcomed, greeting my girlfriend when she arrived and recommending fun things to do in the area. Julia gave us plenty of privacy, but was accessible if we needed her. A great weekend in Buffalo!
Julia's Allentown rental was wonderful! The apartment was as described: clean, comfy, with lots of natural light, even on winter days in Buffalo! Julia was responsive and focused on making sure we had everything we needed. The neighborhood was terrific! Thanks Julia! Thanks Allentown!
I am a 30 something from Buffalo, NY. I love the outdoors and am always down for a good adventure. I am excited to start hosting here in Buffalo and hope that my guests love this city as much as I do.
