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.
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.
We live in a very diverse, friendly neighborhood centrally located near many different city attractions including Elmwood Village, Delaware Park, Delaware Avenue, and ten minutes via car from Downtown.
