This is your own space while you visit! A great garden apartment on a quiet, safe block in the East Rock neighborhood of New Haven. This is a small suite, that is great for parents, couples and single travelers visiting New Haven or Yale. We have had individuals stay with us for months, and couples stay for a few weeks at a time. With couples, it can start to feel a bit tight. What is great about this apartment is, you are just a few blocks walk to Yale's Divinity School and Science Hill, and thirty minutes walk to Old Campus and the New Haven Green. The suite, in our mid-century modern home, overlooking the front garden. It has its own private entrance, private bath, a comfortable day bed, that can pulls-out from a single bed too a king size for two. There is a full closet, small desk, and large dresser. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, hot plate, and coffee maker. The large windows let in great light, and have views of the lush front garden. There is free Wi-Fi available.

Interaction with Guests
We are usually around, but leave it up to our guests as to how much interaction they want. It is great to meet so many interesting travelers.
This is a convenient, beautiful old tree lined neighborhood, on the edge of Downtown New Haven. We are close enough to walk most everywhere in town, but still enjoy the quiet, park-side location, and its FREE PARKING!
We're on the Yale shuttle line and the public bus runs by every 10 minutes. Both buses will get you downtown in 10 minutes. We also have bicycles that guests can use, we walk or ride almost everywhere.
Other Things to Note
We love that we can walk our kids to school, walk to work, and to local markets, wine shops, and coffee shops.
No smoking inside. Quiet conduct after hours.
Kitchenette with the microwave, refrigerator, induction cook top, toaster-oven, electric kettle, and coffee-maker.
Had a brief chat with Truman on arriving and he made me feel extremely welcome. The apartment itself was cozy and plenty of attention to detail had been put in to make it an extremely restful stay. Thanks Truman!
The perfect Airbnb experience. The room is a self-contained "granny flat" with its own bathroom, living space/bedroom, and entry/micro-kitchen. The accommodation has its own entrance. Truman came to greet me as I arrived and was very friendly. The neighborhood is gorgeous and quiet, and the room was just a 10 min walk from the north end of Yale's campus. The room was fortified with ample towels, snacks, beverages, and coffee. There was a small fan, a toaster over, microwave, kettle, coffee maker and refrigerator. The bed was a twin with two mattress stacked atop one another, and the frame could expand to accommodate both mattresses side-by-side. It would be hard to imagine a better Airbnb room or a better location.
Truman's place was absolutely perfect. I often see reviews on here that say the host had thought of everything - Truman really had, from the framed welcome sign with all the tips, info and numbers you could need to the nearly labelled cupboard and foldaway table. The space is small but so clean and well-designed, I wish I could've stayed longer!
This was a fantastic place. It felt private and secure. There so many things that made my stay very comfortable. The neighborhood was great. It was close to everything. My hosts were fantastic! The private room had everything that I needed to feel at home. I would definitely recommend this apartment to everyone.
I would be hard pressed to come up with any way in which the place and our host could have better accommodated my wife and I while we visited our son at Yale. Many thoughtful touches made it feel special, and the location was ideal.

About the Host, Truman
I'm a designer, inventor, engineer and builder and I enjoy fixing-up and renovating homes. My family and I enjoy our good friends, food and drink and occasional travel. I own and manage the-up-keep on a few apartments locally, and I'm always looking for the next fixer-upper! We are also involved with the Yale community, and enjoy our urban / suburban lifestyle here in little New Haven.
