About this listing
Experienced Airbnb superhosts listing this cozy, comfortable room with private entrance and a deluxe all-marble bathroom. Centrally located in Bloomington, yet tucked away on a very quiet, safe, residential street where birds and bunnies abound.
Welcome and thank you for viewing our room.
We've stayed in many airbnbs and hotels around the world and have made an effort to provide you with the best accommodations based on what we've experienced.
If you're looking for a private space with a separate entrance in a clean, quiet environment, this is the place for you. In other words, guests will not go through the rest of the house in order get to the room. If you enjoy soaking in a sunken tub in a very large, deluxe bathroom, you'll love this spot. Hosts have traveled the world, and know how to provide a comfortable room with all the amenities. Towels, sheets, shampoo, soap, lite snacks, coffee, tea, and bottled water are available for guest use.
***Guests are wowed by the floor to ceiling, spacious marble bathroom that makes them feel pampered by just setting foot into it.
If you have a 3rd person feel free to rent our other listing which is a loft for one person.
***Guests love the hardwood oak floors. No soils, stains or dust embedded in them as is so often the case with carpeting.
The room has a small refrigerator, microwave, small kitchen counter, basic food utensils, as well as a walk-in closet, chest of drawers, iron, and a lot of amenities tucked away throughout the room.
***Guests comment on our quiet neighborhood - yet it's so close to everything.
Experience and previous interaction with guests has taught us that our room appeals most to those who are from Europe and/or have traveled internationally, as well as folks from larger urban areas. Parents of IU students also enjoy the solitude while here as well as the closeness to campus, restaurants and shopping.
***Guests especially enjoy their own private entrance because - let's face it - when you're traveling, sometimes you just need your own space.
As we have no pets, folks with allergies can find a refuge here.
You'll find luxuriously soft sheets on the beds, and a warm but light comforter (in the winter) with four pillows of varying levels of softness so that you can find the comfort level that is best for you. Extra sheets and blankets are available. 100% cotton hotel grade towels will soothe and dry your skin after a hot shower or bath in the deluxe sunken bathtub. Bath salts are provided.
***Guests love the soft, luxurious sheets.
The owners designed and built (literally) the house and have put a lot of thought into making it comfortable and cozy for themselves and their guests. It is still a work in progress, so you may find some sort of project going on around the house.
Guests will have access to the back deck with chairs (weather permitting), as well as their room and bathroom. Guests who stay more than a week can also schedule a time for laundry.
Interaction with guests
There will be little interaction with hosts unless required by guests. Hosts will be happy to give information on local eateries, etc to guests, or answer any questions, but only if guests need and/or want this type of arrangement. We are very friendly, but don't want to be in your way.
Our neighborhood is centrally located, yet very quiet and safe. It is an older neighborhood with mostly retired people. It is not a development - rather it has a long history of families living in the same home for decades. The homes range from very tiny, to a large mansion tucked away in the woods across the street. It is this variety that makes it interesting (at least this is what we find attractive - nothing cookie-cutter about it.) It is so quiet - especially at night - that guests might think they're in the country rather than in the middle of town, even though a major road is just 1/2 block away.
The bus is a 4 minute walk from the house and takes you near IU and/or shopping and restaurants in minutes. If you have a car, you'll be a few short minutes away from downtown, IU and/or shopping and restaurants.
Other things to note
The hosts live in the house with no pets or small children. Although we have the occasional gathering, generally we are a very quiet family, and will do everything to ensure that our guests have a quiet and comfortable stay.
No loud noises, excessive drinking or parties allowed. No smoking indoors. This room is meant for one or two people looking for a quiet place to rest while working in or visiting Bloomington. No visitors other than those listed as guests are allowed without prior approval by hosts.

We love to travel and salsa dance. We own a local restaurant and have learned a lot about customer service as a result. We may want to have our own B&B in the future, but for now hosting on airbnb is our latest adventure. We've enjoyed being guests at airbnb homes, and now we'd like to host guests. Having traveled extensively, we know what people look for when traveling, and hope to provide the same to our guests. We don't want to be in your face, but we want to be available if you need us. We want our guests to be comfortable and happy and will do what we can to make sure this happens.
