About this listing
5 1/2 MONTHS HALF HOUSE RENTAL WHILE OWNER IS IN JAMAICA. It's never too early to plan for winter! $1000 month 11/1/15 - 4/15/16, below market price, to include a few responsibilities. Furnished home, lovely location. Sunny, equipped kitchen.
This rental is not for a few days or short term. I am offering to rent my own home, a self-contained private unit in a two sided single family dwelling, for one person, duration 5+ or 5 months from November 1, 2015 until April 15, (or April 1), 2016, basically the entire winter, while I am on leave to stay warm in Jamaica, due to physical challenges that prevent me from navigating the cold season.
A car is essential in winter, as we are almost a mile from the bus route, but our location is very close and convenient to shopping, entertainment, restaurants, universities and Amherst center, so long as you have a vehicle. We have the advantage of a beautiful, rural setting surrounded by vast expanses of cornfields and western panoramic views, beautiful sunsets and no close neighbors, yet being centrally located.
You are welcome to contact me via Airbnb email if you have any specific questions.
One spacious bedroom, a living room/computer and TV room, bathroom and kitchen, rear deck and back yard, off street parking.

A vehicle is a must in winter, as we are a mile from the bus route.
Other Things to Note
Please contact landlord immediately (it won't cost you), if there are any system failures or repairs needed.
As a vegetarian of 40 years, I am requesting no cooking of flesh in my kitchen. Non- smokers only. Cleanliness is very important to me, and respect for the furnishings and accessories I will leave for your use. Awareness in regard to energy conservation means keeping the heat at a reasonable level (not tropical), and turning off lights, appliances, etc. when they are not actually in use. Following your tracks, i.e. cleaning up after using the kitchen and bath, are important to me. I provide a quality vacuum cleaner to be used on a regular basis. We practice recycling, and compost does not go in the trash but in a covered plastic container, then to the convenient compost pile outside. Earth-friendly cleaning solutions only please, or owner can provide.
Please discuss with owner regarding overnight guests, which we prefer not to have often.
