Your bedroom is in a colorful, artsy century home located within walking distance of the trendy Gordon Square Arts District and Edgewater Park. Convenient to downtown and public transit, which will take you straight to the airport. A vegan paradise!
We are located in a lively part of Cleveland known as Detroit Shoreway or Gordon Square Arts District. It is full of restaurants and bars, art galleries, a movie theater and avant-garde live theater (Cleveland Public Theater), cafes and more all within walking distance. You can also stroll or bike to Edgewater Park on the shores of Lake Erie quite easily. Public transportation to downtown or the airport is within a five minute walk, or you can drive to downtown or the Westside Market in about the same amount of time. You can get to the trendy Tremont neighborhood in about 15 minutes by bike.
Our home was built in the early 20th century and has been very well preserved with dark wood and leaded glass throughout and you can see from the photos that it is very colorful. The eclectic kitchen is the central hub of activity in our home, while the living room is the perfect spot for conversation, kicking back and putting your feet up. We will be happy to provide a light breakfast of coffee or tea, fruit, toast and jam. We do occasionally prepare something more elaborate like pancakes or waffles on Sundays. We’ve got a front porch perfect for sipping an afternoon refreshment and a back porch to watch the fireflies come out at dusk or to take a snooze in the hammock.
Your room is on the second floor and has a new memory foam mattress and very easy access to the second floor shared bathroom. We do not own a TV, so the house is usually quiet most of the time. We do have air conditioning, however, we typically turn it on only when the heat goes above about 80 degrees. So if you need to be in a very cool environment, then ours might not be the best choice for you.
We have everything you could need for your comfort: iron, hair dryer, towels, washer and dryer, wireless internet, mini-fridge in your room, etc. If you need something else, just ask! We use only natural and organic toiletries and prefer that our guests do the same. If you do not currently use this type of product, you are welcome to use ours. Parking is on the street. Usually safe, but we do not recommend leaving anything of value in your vehicle. We can accommodate you in the driveway if you prefer. Our schedule is typically up around 8 and in bed by 11.
We have a very adorable four-year-old Italian Greyhound mix named Flaco. He loves to be around people and you will probably fall in love with him.
Mi casa es su casa! Our home is your home! You are welcome to enjoy any of the common areas: entire first floor and front and back porches/patio. The kitchen can be used to prepare vegan or vegetarian meals.
Alejandro works from home and is around quite a bit. We are flexible as far as interaction goes. We do love to learn about you and tell you about our wonderful city and all that there is to see and do, but we also respect those who prefer a little more privacy.
Thank you so much for hosting me on my trip to Cleveland. Your place was comfortable, clean, and inviting. It was a pleasure meeting you both and Flaco and thanks for the restaurant suggestions! Had a great time. Thanks#
Jeanne and Alex were wonderful hosts! Very warm and friendly people with a lovely, colorful home and their sweet little dog, Flaco- everyone makes you feel welcome! I would, without hesitation, recommend staying with Jeanne, Alex, and Flaco any time you are thinking of visiting Cleveland. It was a great experience!
My wife and I stayed here for our first Cleveland visit. Jeanne and Alejandro (Alex) were wonderful to us. Their home was beautiful, lots of bright colors and personal touches. They were very considerate hosts — they shared tips on Cleveland, made coffee and delicious cashew-based vegan creamer, accommodated my gluten allergy, and even gave us Sangria when they hosted some friends for an evening gathering. Great conversationalists, we really enjoyed sharing stories with them. Felt like we were staying with old friends. I'd highly recommend staying with them, if you get the chance.
Thanks, Michael and Maria! It was a pleasure to begin hosting again after the unexpected maintenance that closed down our guest room for several months. Watch for updated photos coming soon, along with new artwork on the walls! You'll have to come back and stay with us again! Sincere apologies to those guests that we were forced to cancel reservations on...

Jeanne and Alex were great hosts and their house is WOW--love all the colour! (And yes, that's the Canadian spelling.)

Our stay provided just what we needed; a nice bed and a safe place to crash after a long day at a conference. The house is clean and lovely. The host/owners were super kind. I wish I could have sat down with them. We'd always start great conversations then we'd have to go.
Nous avons passé deux nuits en compagnie de Jeanne et Alejandro. Jeanne est une hôtesse formidable qui est très accessible et à l'écoute. Elle nous a recommandé le Stone Mad Pub pour notre souper d'arrivée et nous avons bien aimé cet endroit. Nous avons fait plusieurs activités le lendemain et avons eu deux très bonnes nuits de sommeil dans une chambre impeccable. Jeanne aime beaucoup les arts et la mode. Nous avons eu de belles discussions. Le quartier est tranquille et nous nous sommes senties en sécurité pendant notre séjour.
Wonderful hosts, great neighborhood, fabulous dog! We would highly recommend staying with Alex, Jeanne and Flaco!
