The master bedroom in this house is also posted on AirBnB:
Guests have 24/7 access to common areas, including a fully equipped kitchen (with gas range/oven), a bathroom with a full-sized tub and shower, a high capacity washer and dryer, and a whole-house heating and cooling system.
In addition, there is a lovely living room, sunroom, dining room, and patio all on the first floor here for common use.

There is a large board game collection available for use while you are here as well as a nice variety of books (fiction and non-fiction).
On occasion, I host small gatherings where people eat, play, talk, learn, and I enjoy providing a space for people to meet and share whether I am there participating or not.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information. Thanks for looking and good luck in your travels!
Interaction with Guests
I am very available to answer questions through the airbnb messaging system leading up to your reservation.
Depending on my schedule, I may or may not be around during your stay. Don't worry, there are people at the house there to assist you with all of your questions and needs.
You may arrive at any time of night, so please don't worry about waking anyone.
If you want to join in on daily activities like shared meals, farmers' markets, trips to the store, intellectual conversation, a walk around the neighborhood, a park, or main street Newark, we are very social and welcoming.
But if you prefer there be limited interaction, we are very respectful. Please just be honest and forthright so we can accommodate you best!
If you want to know good places to shop, eat, enjoy the weather, etc. just ask! If you need a quick ride somewhere, we can most-likely help you out. We're here for you, and it is our pleasure to host you!
The neighborhood is small, safe, and friendly!
The main highway is just a couple minutes walking distance from the house. The bus runs regularly from that intersection northeast into Wilmington or southwest into Newark. There are also plenty of taxi services you can call, car rental companies, and local car share service.
There are plenty of parks, trails, and things to do nearby.
Other Things to Note
**Multiple rooms rates available upon request.
**Additional storage space available upon request.
**If this room appears to be booked for one or more of the dates that you'd like to stay, I may be able to accommodate your needs. So don't be shy...shoot me a message to inquire about the possibilities.
Overall, the atmosphere is pretty relaxed around here. I have decided to share my home not for the sole purpose of financial gain but with the hopes that this sharing experience will be good. To facilitate this I have established a few rules to inspire the "pay it forward" mentality:
1. Enjoy yourself!
2. Make sure kitchen and bathroom is clean after each use.
3. If you stay for more than a few days, please try to replace the paper products you've used.
4. Help me to continue to provide these rooms at low prices by helping out when and where you can. I do not employ a cleaning service, so I do appreciate any and all assistance.

I enjoyed my experience at the house, Dan is doing a great thing sharing the house with others. It's a pretty busy house and Matt and Valerie do a great job with managing the house, keeping it maintained, etc., and go above and beyond to accommodate any requests. It's a nice relaxed atmosphere and I liked the others I met at the house. I live locally and needed a place to stay while in transition of moving and I loved the location, close to everything.
I didn't get to meet Dan, but Matt and Valerie did a great job as substitute hosts while I stayed here for 2 months. The house is clean, and there were no problems sharing the kitchen, living room, and bathroom with the other house guests. There was ample space for the fridge. You can use any of the dishware to eat or cook. There is a washer and dryer downstairs. There is ample street parking. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. It was a great stay. I would definitely stay here again and recommend others to stay here as well.
I lived an entire month with Matt and Val, Dan's friends, and their adorable kid ! They have been the most amazing hosts i have ever known: kind, serviable, interesting, funny, and so more !
I will always be grateful for all the help they provided me when i was in trouble and when i needed someone close, friends :)
I can only say do not hesitate a second to come live an american experience in this house, if you are foreign for example like me. Even if you are not of course !
Thanks again a lot guys !!! I hope we will keep in touch :D

About the Host, Dan
I've lived in Delaware my whole life and love the variety of experiences available in Delaware and am an experienced traveler and guide as I have hosted dozens of couchsurfers(travelers) at my previous residence.
This was my mom's house and after she passed, my brother and I inherited it. We live at his house, but there will always be someone friendly and knowledgeable to assist you with your stay, whether it be myself or a close friend.
I am passionate about community and sharing, and some day I plan on moving to a rural intentional community or starting my own. For now, this house serves as a suburban hub where people from all over the world come to stay, cook, share, learn, grow, make friends, and above all enjoy themselves in a safe environment. I encourage you to share meals with each other and hang out in the common areas, but if you prefer to spend your time privately in your room, I respect that as well.
It is my pleasure to welcome guests in my house, and please let me know how I can make your stay more enjoyable! Happy Travels!
