The space

Cozy home close to New Hope, Princeton, Philly. Easy access to the train to NYC or Phila for day trips. This is a non-smoking home. This home is prefect for anyone needing a home away from home while in the Princeton, NJ or Newtown, PA areas. I welcome long-term rentals for students and business professionals!

The home has southern exposure and has a casual elegance. Adjacent to the canal jogging path. Lots of space and privacy. Use of kitchen dining and open spaces. Serene back yard offers a great place to relax, study or wind down. It feels like a retreat year-round. Great place to call home while visiting local colleges, go wine tasting at one of our local vineyards or antiquing. I have hosted many exchange students who love our unique location to all major attractions and colleges.

Perfect for short-term corporate visits to Merill Lynch campus in Pennington or corporate campus in Newtown, PA. Long-term rentals encouraged with reasonable rates.

Guest access

Guests have partial use of the kitchen with dedicated shelves in the fridge and pantry. Guests may enjoy meals on the back patio too. The guest bedroom has a TV for your entertainment.

Laundry area is downstairs for your use during your stay.

Interaction with guests

Between work, yoga and grad school I am almost never home but our paths will probably cross at some point each day. I do prefer that you use the TV in your room because that allows my study areas downstairs to remain quiet.

I live on the property, so you will probably see me daily although I honor and respect your space and privacy and ask that you do the same for me. That includes creating a clear separation of daily life for each of us.

The neighborhood

I like to call this neighborhood a Disney neighborhood because the homes are quaint custom built homes on a quiet, tree-lined street. I have lived here for 28 years and never get tired how uniquely beautiful it is here!

Getting around

There are bus routes just 2 blocks away however mass transit here is not like in the big cites. NJ Transit rail system (to Princeton + NYC) and Septa Rail System (to Phila.) is very convenient.

I am conveniently located near most major highways such as Rt 95, Rt 195, Rt 295, Rt 1 and the New Jersey Turnpike. I am one hour from the Jersey Shore for great weekend getaways!

Other things to note

This home has a zen atmosphere of peace and serenity. TV usage is kept to a minimum and must be limited to the bedroom area. Quiet hours from 7 pm to 7 am are strictly enforced. Television downstairs is limited to owner usage. You will have a shelf in the refrig. and also a pantry shelf. Coffee and Tea are provided. Kitchen spices, paper products and kitchen basics are also provided. Laundry soap, bath towels and linens are provided as well.

Please do not use artificial fragrances on property - that includes perfumes, colognes, or artificially scented laundry detergents. The host specifically requests that the use of fragrance boosters or scented laundry detergent, and commercial perfumes not be used due to the toxicity and allergic reactions. The host maintains a 100% fragrance free property therefore guests are asked to be mindful of what they bring into the house.

I live on the property, so you will probably see me daily. I honor and respect your space and privacy and ask that you do the same for me. In order to maintain and respect the privacy and zen atmosphere of the home, please respect that usage of the space and the home is limited to the paying Airbnb guest. Therefore, please do not invite other persons into the home.
Thank you.

Hi, welcome to Airbnb! I have lived in my house for 29 years and I do my very best to make sure guests have a marvelous stay. I try to include any amenities that I feel will make stays more enjoyable (coffee maker, blow dryer, fast wifi Internet). I also make sure that my responses to inquiries are very concise and prompt.

I am a New Jersey native but have also lived in Colorado, Mexico, Vermont and Spain. I love travel, culture, art, foreign languages and yoga. I am currently earning my master's degree in holistic health. I eat a mostly plant based diet and make a lot of green smoothies. I work for a well known travel website. I live alone with my cat and we live a peaceful, yet busy life. I maintain a zen environment with tons of beautiful artwork in every room. If you like to come home to a quiet and tranquil setting then you will really like my place.

Don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions about myself, my property or the Airbnb experience in general. I would love to have you as my guest! My house is cozy and inviting with lots of room to spread out.

Welcome again, and hope to have you as my guest.
