The Space

***OUR RATES ARE NEGOTIABLE*** Just message us with your offer.

NEW: Starting 8/1, rent "Student/Scholar loft bedrm for one" on the same property for a 3rd person or older child.

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 need to 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.

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.

Our experience and previous interaction with our 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.

As we have no pets, folks with allergies can find a refuge here.

You'll find 100% Egyption cotton sheets on the beds, and a warm but light comforter 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.

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 property. Currently (as of 5/2014) we are finishing up another room to rent out on airbnb so you may see or hear evidence of this ongoing work.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to side and back decks 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.

The Neighborhood

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 even think they're in the country rather than in the middle of town, even though a major road is just 1/2 block away.

Getting around

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.

  • My daughter stayed here and told me it was lovely, very quiet; the bathroom was incredible and she very much enjoyed her stay. Thanks a lot.

  • A comfortable, spacious home away from home that was a five minute drive to downtown. Slept great with the blackout curtains and was blown away by the luxurious bathroom. They provided thoughtful amenities and miscellaneous items travelers may lack. The backyard was pretty and I was lucky enough to visit during lightning bug/firefly season to watch the bugs twinkle after sunset. Nice people, good communicators.

  • What a lovely stay we had at Naomi & Victor ' s home with Air bnb. Their room with private entrance and the bathroom were spotless and so comfortable. Naomi included many personal touches like the bananas, granola bars and yes, coffee [!] that made us feel so welcome. Loved the neighborhood, very close to downtown but felt we were in the country. Enjoyed spending some time in the morning on the deck with coffee and fresh, warm pita, complements of the host. Naomi was available for directions and to answer questions, but never hovering. Would definitely recommend this venue in Bloomington.

  • Naomi and Victor were extraordinary hosts! We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of space and peace we had in our room. The bathroom was so clean and the soaking tub was a huge perk especially after traveling 15 hours. We felt well rested and well taken care of during our stay. We were in close proximity to all the jewels in Bloomington and Naomi went out of her way to be so kind. We even had tres lechwe cake from her daughters birthday which was the best I ever had!!!! You should definitely book with Naomi and Victor if you are on the fence. There is a short ride into town or a 25 -30 min walk which is doable. They have a gorgeous deck and an eye for design. I enjoyed the flower gardens and selection of art on the walls. Also a huge bonus is a mini fridge and hot plate!! Thank you both so much for making our stay the greatest!!!! We love Bloomington and will always remember our stay here.

  • We had a great stay in Bloomington. Our Airbnb was in a nice location and our hosts were great to work with. The apartment was very nice and comfortable.

  • Naomi was a pleasant host. She prepared everything that was needed when we checked in. The place was amazing. Everything was so comfortable and it really make our visit to Bloomington worthwhile.

  • Naomi and Victor's AirBnB is awesome. The five-star deluxe bathroom, comfy bed, and private entrance sets this AirBnB on a course to rival some of the best accommodations I've ever stayed at. Literally every detail is accounted for and check-in/check-out was a breeze. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit B-town!

  • We felt right-at-home for 3 nights in N&V's spacious cottage. Had a nice chat with Naomi upon arriving. It was nice to have our own entrance and dedicated parking area.

  • I have only Kudos & Gratitude to convey regarding my stay in Naomi's and Victor's residence. The bed and bathtub were absolutely wonderful! As I am in the process of relocating to Bloomington, I appreciate being able to set up my 'Headquarters' in their home and have a quiet, welcoming place to settle into during the evenings. The decor is warm and inviting. I appreciated the diversity of books available for leisurely reading. I also recommend partaking of their restaurant, Falafels on Kirkwood Avenue. The homemade gelato and shawarma are delicious!

    It was a pleasure to host you. We look forward to welcoming you to our town!

  • I have stayed in Naomi & Victor's private room twice and each time I have found them to be very accommodating hosts! The room was very clean, extremely comfortable, and nice and quiet. Overall, I would say that they provide their guests with a great place to stay for a few days while visiting Bloomington. I look forward to staying with them again the next time I am in town! :)

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.
