The space

In a diverse, urban neighborhood on the rebound, in the center of the city, within an easy walk of Buffalo's best and most historic neighborhoods including Millionaire's Row, Olmsted Parks, Forest Lawn Cemetery, museums, chic shopping district, great restaurants, with easy access to public transportation, 5-10 minutes from downtown by car.

This 100 year old arts and crafts house was designed by one of Buffalo's leading architects at the time. Personal tours of the area are available as well as transportation to/from downtown, airport, bus or train station.

Free parking is easily available on the street for guests.

We have two rooms. Our other room is listed as Historic Arts and Crafts Rose Room.

This is our home, so we'll be in and out. We have one other guest room, so there may or may not be other guests in the home when you are here.

The bathroom is shared and we do our best to plan our use around your schedule. Your hosts go to work in the morning but we've never had a problem coordinating our bathroom use with our guests' needs.

The BnB is 18 year-old Marivi's business. Until August of 2015, Marivi ran the business and was the world's youngest AirBnB host. Now that she's at school, John, her Dad, runs the business for her. The income goes to support her many artistic and academic activities that Mom and Dad can't afford. She takes her role as the business owner and innkeeper very seriously and is committed to making your experience in Buffalo the best it can possibly be.

Guest access

Guests are free to share the house with the family, but be aware that the common room on the second floor outside the guest rooms is also the family TV room. The living room is usually a good place for guests to sit quietly without many interruptions.

Interaction with guests

The family is busy and may or may not be around very much during your stay. We love to interact with guests who are looking for conversation, but we also respect the privacy of our guests who wish to be left alone.

Other things to note

We do not serve breakfast; however, we are very good at offering suggestions of good places to find some!

We stayed with Marivi and John for one night before catching a plane from Buffalo Airport the next morning. We arrived late at night and checked ourselves in which worked out completely fine. The place itself was absolutely spotless and Marivi informed us about pretty much everything that we needed to know. Also, John kindly agreed to take us to the airport even at a very early hour. All in all, the place made a great impression and we would have loved to stay a bit longer. Would definitely recommend to anybody travelling to Buffalo!

Marivi andJohn were best of the hosts and everything was spot on in their house even if we could not make it physically after making the reservations. Given a chance to visit Niagara falls and Buffalo in near future their place will always be my best bet !! best regards, Sabyasachi

Marivi And John User Profile

I've been told I'm AirBnB's youngest host. There is a large portrait of me and a few other interesting hosts hanging in the new AirBnB headquarters in San Francisco. My profile photo is one of the pictures that was taken during the photoshoot for this portrait.

I've been doing this since I was 14. My parents have allowed me to use our family home for my AirBnB business. I use the proceeds of the business to help pay my educational expenses, to fund my modeling and acting endeavors, and pageant activities.

I was Miss New York Junior Teen in 2012, USA National Miss New York Teen and Miss New York High School in 2014 . I was the youngest contestant in the Miss New York (Miss America) 2015 pageant, and was the youngest contestant in memory to finish in the Top Ten.

I graduated with high honors at a private girls prep school, and as of August 18, 2015 I am a student at Duke University. I continue to be your host when I'm home on breaks but when I'm at school, my Dad, John Howell, runs the business for me.

Dad has a little business on the side giving private insider tours of Buffalo. His fees for all of this are reasonable and he knows a lot about Buffalo's history and factoids you'd like to know. He charges a cash fee for these services.

We also offer transportation to guests when our schedules allow. Our fees for transportation are a little less than taxi cab fare, and you don't have to tip us. Many of our guests traveling by air, train, or bus, have appreciated the convenience of our help with rides to and from the airport, train stations or bus terminal. We are also often asked to take guests to Niagara Falls.

My father is also a novelist, and you can get an autographed copy of one of his books if you want one.
