Everyone with at least one positive Airbnb review welcome! This retro-awesome midcentury modern apartment has a spectacular view of Ithaca and Cornell. It's a unique apartment--the kind of place you can only find on Airbnb! It's my home part-time--and has both quirkiness and charm. Professionally cleaned!

Note for Cornell graduation - pricing is higher on this weekend, but if you book two nights, you will get a third night for free!

Wonderful stay. Fall colors as just coming in to full view. You’ll never find a better place to view them in Ithaca than Kit’s place.

For future guests, it is possible to sleep upstairs, and then there is one small step up into the house from the back door, and the bathroom is one small step up. I have hosted people in wheelchairs, and while it is not ADA-compliant, it is possible to get around everywhere…

A well placed apartment with a wonderful view over water and the town. Make sure that Kit guarantees you that the apartment is clean!: we were not lucky and had to live in a filthy apartment

Response from Kit:
Please, future guests, this apartment is cleaned professionally before you arrive, but it is not perfect. I say "not for neatniks" and I mean this. If you are one of those people who likes everything spotless and sparkling, that's fine, but this place is not for you. An average…

I live in Ithaca, NY and I am the founder of a tech startup, using the money earned from Airbnb to help launch it. I also own and manage several rental properties. I enjoy Latin dancing, especially salsa and bachata, and in the winter, I love to ski.
Interaction with guests
Guests who value their privacy will like this apartment. Your staying here will often fund Kit’s own travel (something he is passionate about!), so he may be far away, but he will always be available via phone and text, and if something breaks, he has people who can come over…
