This clean, comfortable home is on a quiet street near a beautiful walking trail. We're close enough to PU for you to enjoy a game, concert, visiting your student, or researching without a high hotel cost or long ride home. You can cook here too!
Please notice our SuperHost designation!
We strive to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
West Lafayette is the "Home of Purdue" therefore much of the community life here is connected to the university: lectures, athletic events, concerts, galleries, etc. We are close enough to enjoy what the campus offers but out of the fray of near-campus living.
The kitchen is open for your use and we'll save some room in the pantry and fridge for you. Other shared spaces are the living room (great light for reading or board games) and family room
(especially nice for movie watching.)
The bathrooms for this room are shared with one or two other people. Everyone leaves their toiletries out of sight and towels in their rooms so the bathrooms stay clean and uncluttered.
We have a nice patio in the yard with a grill, fire pit and dining/work table. The wifi reaches out there too.
Note that we do not have tv service (keeps the sound clutter away) but do have a large screen tv, some dvds, and a streaming Netflix subscription.
Interaction with guests
This is a shared home with up to three other people residing here. It's a four bedroom home. Housemates are friendly, interesting, professional, and social but are not intrusive. We respect that some guests while 'home' will want rest and solitude, others will prefer company and chatting. Most importantly, we want you to feel comfortable.
Other things to note
-Check out at 11 am is typical; it gives us time to ready for the next guest. However, you may leave your luggage at the house during the day if you need to.
- A limited breakfast is offered: tea, coffee, instant oatmeal. It's best to bring your own. There will be space for your food.
Be kind and thoughtful.
Use earbuds or headphones after 10pm.
No smoking in or around the home and limit fragrant products (hair spray, colognes, etc.)
Do enjoy using the kitchen but clean up shortly after.
Use best green practices: recycle and compost in the kitchen, conserve energy and water when possible.
Please note the amenities do not include the washer/ dryer unless you are staying a week or longer.
I've been using Airbnb as a guest for a couple of years. Every home-away-from-home stay was a nice experience and I hope my guests will be able to say the same.
I'm a happy middle-aged emptynester who travels frequently just for fun. When in West Lafayette, I like to go walking or cycling (we have many trails in the area), listen to music, read, practice yoga, go out for live music, dancing, or comedy shows, or have friends over for soup and board games. (I know, it's all too exciting, isn't it?!)
I'm a full time real estate broker and if you are planning to move to this area I'd love to help you find your home. Note: in most areas of the US, the buyers do not pay the commission for helping find a home. The fees are paid by the person selling their home.
Hope to meet you soon,
