The sofa-bed is ideal for one person, but can fit two. We make this bed with a thick IKEA mattress pad so it's more comfortable.

The Space

We're located in the Dwight neighbourhood which is under a 10 minute walk to the main Yale campus and about the same to the med school area. Dwight is an urban area and we're on the ambulance route so if you're looking for something super quiet, you're better off checking out a place in East Rock. However, if you're used to big cities, you'll find Dwight comparatively tranquil. There are a few bars and restaurants down the street, though our particular block is mainly residential.

Our place is on the first floor of the building, and is a two-bedroom apartment. The room we're renting out doubles as guestroom and office, and the bed is a pull-out sofa-bed which is ideal for one person but can fit two (the bed measures 46 x 80 inches). The guestroom contains a number of bookshelves, a desk and chair, as well as a small built-in closet which guests are free to use. It's a bright room and super sunny in the mornings though we have dark curtains for those who prefer to sleep in.

The apartment has a central heating system and we have smaller electric heaters as well. There is only one bathroom in the apartment, so we'll have to share. You're also welcome to use the kitchen and our washing machine if you need to do laundry. We *do not* provide breakfast.

On-street parking is usually plentiful, though there are also paid parking lots close by. We're three blocks away from the Yale shuttle stop on York/Chapel, and the bus-stop for CTTransit route F is just outside our door. There's a large Stop & Shop about a 5-10 mins' walk from our place, as well as a number of smaller grocery stores, a liquor store, a Dunkin Donuts, our very own neighbourhood comic book store (!), and a 24-hour Walgreens all within a block or two.

Large desk and comfortable computer chair. The desk has since moved and is now facing the large window on the right - it just made more sense space-wise.
