Welcome to your farmhouse experience in Cedar Rapids! This gorgeous meticulously decorated 2 bed 1 bath home is just 1 block from Newbo market, bars, restaurants, entertainment. This home has fully equipped and stocked kitchen, luxury bed-sheets and foam mattresses, fully remodeled bathroom, high-speed fiber optic internet (100MBPS), Smart TVs and tons of other luxuries included. This home is wheelchair accessible and has a dedicated disabled parking space

The space
Enjoy the privacy of your own space in this newly renovated Historic Cedar Rapids home, locally known as the Kurik House. This unit is on first floor of the house and is wheelchair accessible. There are 2 dedicated parking spots and an additional disabled parking spot. Roadside and parking lots are options for additional cars, trailers, etc. Be sure to read the history of this house in the living room.

This is a historic home built in 1910 and we fully renovated it in 2019. Due to the older construction, the floors are thin and it is expected that you can hear people walking in the upstairs unit, or washer-dryer running. This is similar to apartment complexes and if you believe that this may be an issue for you, you might want to pack earplugs or please consider booking our upstairs unit or the whole home.

The home is stocked with helpful amenities and little luxuries and is the perfect place to call home for a weekend, or more extended stay.

The home is bright and sunny with plenty windows that bring the outdoors in and offer views of the surrounding with beautiful sunsets. Make yourself at home on the private wrap around deck with a glass of wine or take a few steps to many of the restaurants and shops in Newbo. Prepare a home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen or start your day with a variety of Keurig coffee and tea selection offered. A variety of games and books are available to enjoy or cozy up at night in front of the two large smart TVs (one in living room and another in one of the bedrooms) and stream your favorite movies with complimentary WI-FI via fiber optic internet.

Enjoy a great night's sleep in queen size beds so decadently comfortable that you will not want to leave. Crisp linens, luxe pillows and echo dots for music, alarm, and white noise await you. Plush Turkish cotton bath linens and toiletries are provided. Feel completely secured while you sleep or step away from the house with ring security system and automated locks.

This is also a great place to stay while on work travel and for traveling nurses. You will enjoy laptop friendly areas including dedicated work table, 100MBPS fiber optic internet service (wifi only), USB chargers and Alexa Dot for music.

I grew up in India and moved to Iowa in 2016. I got my degree in Architecture and love designing sustainable buildings at a local firm. I love to see the world and the people in it! So far, I've ventured to France, Holland, Greece, Thailand, UAE and I hope the list continues to grow every year. Of all my travels so far, Hawaii is the dearest since me and my travel-crazy husband got married there. What intrigues me most is the paradox in the vast diversity yet core similarity that we share as humankind-anywhere in the world. I like meeting people and getting to know them through their stories. I believe the real value in life is found in relationships and experiences-even those that only lasted one conversation long. I love life...and living to the fullest. Most people describe me as 'bubbly' and 'pleasant' and having 'a permanent smile'. I can't help it really. I love putting smiles on people's faces too and if that means going the extra mile ..its worth it! I look forward to connecting with you as a host or traveler. I will do my best to make your stay as comfortable as possible or being a good guest :)
