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.
We have two nice vintage English 3 speed woman's bike that guests can use to get around town during their stay.
You can come-and-go as you please, with your own keys, without worry of disturbing us, your hosts. We are just upstairs if you have any questions, need directions or just want to say hi.
There are neighborhood shops if you need to grab a coffee, bite to eat or to stock up your fridge with goodies. Just minutes away downtown, you will enjoy some of the best restaurants, shops and museums in Connecticut, and you'll be able to return to your private tranquil suite to relax.
There is free, safe parking 24/7 just out front, public trans and the Yale shuttle are around the corner, although we tend to ride our bikes or walk to get around the neighborhood.
We want to offer our guests a quiet, neighborhood experience in a beautiful garden setting.
FREE PARKING right out front! You have unrestricted access 24-7 to the apartment with your own entrance and key! Feel free to relax on the porch, swing on the rope swing and walk around the yard and neighborhood.
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.
Truman's apartment was just what we needed for our brief stay in New Haven. It may be small, but he has it well-supplied with everything you could want (toiletries, coffee, snacks, even fresh flowers!). The location was very convenient, as well. We didn't actually meet our host, but he was very accommodating and even provided a pack n play for our baby! The bed may not be the most comfortable, but this is a great spot for a quick visit to New Haven.
Truman was very helpful and always available. The contents of the property described is accurate. Thanks for the stay.
Loved arriving with breakfast pastry and coffee ready to make so we didn't feel the need to find a store or go out for b'fast. Immaculate space, quiet, wonderful walkable neighborhood. And fresh flowers on the table! Can't wait to return next time we're in the area.
We had a great time at Truman, who was very atending to all our needs. His place is very nice, very clean with a beatiful garden in front. It is also just a 7minutes walk to Downtown and Yale. I would definitly recomended to anyone.
Truman has put a lot of thought and care into providing a comfortable little apartment which contains everything one could want. It surpassed my expectations in almost every way. I particularly appreciated the use of the bicycle which enabled a quick and pleasurable way to get into town and then back to the cool and quiet retreat of the apartment.
Truman was a very gracious host and lent me a bicycle for my short research stay. Would definitely stay here again.

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.
