The space

This three adjoining rooms 'granny apartment' is located in a spacious basement area with a bathroom, separate entrance and secure parking. Furnishings are simple yet comfortable. In the bedroom there is a queen bed. In addition there is seating area with a queen sized futon. There is also plenty of room for extra guests or children to be accommodated on air mattresses (which we can provide if needed). A pack 'n play, strollers and toys are available for a baby or child. All linens and towels are provided. The room is cool in the summer and has separate heat for the winter.

There is no kitchen, but the area does include a breakfast area with mini-fridge, microwave oven, electric kettle and coffee machine, and is stocked with breakfast items including cereal, yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and fresh fruit (special requests are welcome).

There is no TV, but free WiFi is provided.

There is a friendly medium sized dog on the property and the owners have two cats who are kept indoors.

Enjoy our 3 acre fenced-in backyard and feed the koi in the pond. Responsible guests may also use the pool (towels provided, no glass in pool area, daytime swimming only).

Our house is in the beautiful Ellis Hollow area bordering Cornell University land. It is a convenient 2 mile (5 min) drive from Cornell's central campus and 5 miles (14min) from Ithaca College. We have plenty of safe off- street parking. There is no bus route past our house. The area is perfect for running and biking - the famous "Skunk Cabbage" route runs past our house. A grocery store and gas station are located at East Hill Plaza 1.5 miles away.

If you have questions or special requests, just let us know. We love our home town of Ithaca and would be happy to share information on places to visit and things to do while you are in town.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home,
Bronwyn and Dirk


The apartment is located in our basement and we are usually around. However with your own entrance and completely separate space we do not need to interact with you during your stay unless you would like to pop upstairs for a chat or there is anything that you need. We will try to keep quiet, but you may hear our footsteps in the mornings.

This was my 2nd Airbnb and it did not disappoint. Bronwyn's hospitality was superb - sending messages before arriving in order to make sure we had what we needed, greeting us when we got there, showing us all that was available to us (a pool, swing, trampoline, pond, etc.), etc…

Bronwyn was very gracious and hospitable; she told us about local swimming spots to go to explore. She offered for us to swim in their pool and was overall super nice. The only drawback was that their water has a sulfur smell, which caused the whole place to smell 'funky.' Its…

We had a lovely stay at Bronwyn’s place. The location was really serene and pretty. The house was well equipped with whatever we needed. There were bug issues because it has so much greenery around but it didn’t bother us much. They had kept mosquito repellent as well. Unfortunat…
