About This Listing
Welcome to Grace House. A place where you can relax ,enjoy organic, home cooked food and experience some spa services too! Ask me about in-room massages, free facials when you book. We also offer life coaching services.
I am now offering spa and wellness services to my guests: in-home massage therapy for men and women, complimentary facials, and 30 or 60 minute life coaching services.
Please let me know upon booking your stay if you would like any of these services. My house is 15 minutes to the city and 30 minutes to Niagara Falls by car, not far at all!
There is safe parking on the street in front of my house for your car and there is a supermarket close by.
I include healthy organic breads, coffee, teas, eggs, oatmeal and I also ensure that there are gluten free items available for my guests as long as I know ahead of time, I would be happy to accommodate you! I also like to cook a full breakfast for my guests on the weekends, time permitting with your schedules and mine.. I do ensure that all the ingredients are fresh and I would kindly ask for a love donation of $13 per person for the full breakfast :) I can send you a menu of options if you would like to choose ahead of time!
My home is an inviting, peaceful home with two loving cats. You will be greeted with a warm plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies, freshly scented towels and a warm cup of coffee.
The bedroom has a queen sized bed so comfortable you won't want to get out! This is one of two bedrooms I have available. The other, smaller and very quaint bedroom is listed on Craftsman Style Bungalow II.
There are times when both rooms are booked so the bathroom would be shared between the guests and there are times when the space is just yours to enjoy all by yourself. I promise that if both rooms are booked, you will meet some amazing people from across the globe!
My house is located between the North and South Campuses of the University of Buffalo and just fifteen minutes from the City of Buffalo, you won't be far from any park, concert venue, fabulous restaurants and architectural wonders. Our city hosts three Frank Lloyd Wright homes and many Olmstead parks. The city offers so many wonderful restaurants, you will be hard pressed to choose! I will provide you with recommendations, approximate prices and directions. I promise you won't be disappointed!
The breathtaking, wonder of Niagara Falls is only 30 minutes away and there is a beautiful park to stroll through and you must stay for the light show at night that shows brilliant colors against the sparkly, translucent waters!
There is an artsy part of our town much like NYC's Soho, which we call Elmwood. The street hosts museums, boutiques and many great eateries and bars.
Hertel avenue which is not far from the house is another up and coming area with many unique furniture, interior design stores, boutiques, coffee houses, bars and restaurants.
You are welcome to enjoy the living room and sun room which overlook our beautiful maple tree lined street and watch your favorite tv shows or read a book. There are laundry facilities in the basement.
My cats and I are excited to meet all of you! See you soon!
Wifi, the kitchen, living room, sitting area, bathroom, laundry facilities and outdoor, backyard patio. There is a TV in the living room, please make yourself comfortable , put up your feet and relax watching your favorite shows!
Both of the bedrooms are nicely situated on the first floor with close access to a bathroom and the kitchen. The bathroom is shared with the other guest bedroom, if that is a concern for you , please lets' discuss this before you book the room.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much as they desire. If it is solitude and peace they desire, then i typically spend time in my study or bedroom, giving them the space they need. If they are eager to chat and hangout at breakfast, I love to learn about their stories and culture. The experience is all about how I can serve my guests, in whatever way that is.
My neighborhood is lined with beautiful maple trees, is very quiet with neighbors who are friendly and respectful. There is plenty of safe parking on the street and feel free to take a walk around, it is quite pleasant on a spring/summer day and I promise the neighbors will say hello!
There is a train station about a 10 min walk from the house that goes directly downtown. The train takes a pretty straight route, so there is some walking involved to your destination as well. There are buses, however Buffalo isn't like NYC or Boston where there is a subway system. It is more of a "car/cab city." I can help to provide transportation to and from the airport, into the City of Buffalo and to Niagara Falls.
Other Things to Note
I have another listing on AirBnB for a smaller bedroom that is adjacent to this one, you will find it here: https://www.airbnb.com/manage-listing/3548475/overview . If you would like your entire family in the house, please consider booking both rooms. Both rooms could accommodate 4 people comfortably.
I would graciously ask that you treat my pets with kindness and respect. I have two cats who love people, but they are used to a quiet home so let them come to you and put your hand gently in front of their faces and they will let you kno how comfortable they are. They are very sweet and playful!
My kitchen is open to you, make yourself at home, however I would ask that you clean the pots and pans and put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
Please place the dirty towels in the laundry shoot right on the wall between both bedrooms and please smoke outside if you are a smoker. Thank you, my appreciation in advance.
Grace house is a beautiful place to stay and Kimberly is a wonderful host who goes out of her way to ensure you are comfortable in you're stay there. She was a trove of information and made sure we were fully equipped for our trip to the Niagara. She was completely flexible with our return timings back to the house and her breakfast was too good! Book here and make sure you don't miss her breakfast! She was very sweet and made sure we had everything we needed for a cozy stay at her place. Thanks a lot Kimberly and for the person reading this, just book it. You will love it.
Kimberly is a lovely, lively, welcoming host for anyone visiting Buffalo. She went way out of her way to have fresh local breads and cinnamon coffee and our conversations were wide-ranging and interesting. Book it!!
We could not have chosen a more perfect place for our trip! We were in Buffalo for a surprise Mother's Day trip and Kim opened up her home to our mother and younger sister as well at breakfast. It is more than just a place to stay, it is a total experience. Everything was great from the initial communication before our arrival to our undesired departure. We will definitely be coming back and referring anyone we know headed to the area to book with Kim.
Kim was the epitome of host, ensuring guest (and unexpected entourage of friends) were comfortable and looked after. Her local knowledge was great which made choosing a great bohemian gastropub for us to catch up a great choice. She was amicable and warm even when coming in at 11pm after a long day of her own. The room and facilities were perfect as well. So by all means, you should consider her as host if you want a great place to stay and also a new friend in Buffalo.
We have stayed with Kimberly on multiple trips to Buffalo and it is always like visiting a good friend. Anyone who stays with Kimberly, finds out just how comfortable and easy it is to visit a city far from home. She is a wealth of information about sites and restaurants. The beds are soooooo great and the neighborhood quiet -- you are guaranteed to rest well. Her home is lovely and spotless. Stay with Kimberly on your trip to Buffalo -- you will be glad you did!
We spent dinner time with Kim, she's really friendly and warm hearted. We would really love to go back again :) The room and the bed were extremely comfortable with two adorable cats, highly recommended! Keep in touch, Kim :D
Our stay with Kim was very pleasant and exactly as she described. Kim welcomed us with some delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. Her bungalow was very chic and cozy. The bed in the bedroom we stayed in was very comfortable and the space was just right. We enjoyed our morning talks with Kim over coffee and her delicious breakfast. Thank you Kim for that, it was a very nice touch. We also appreciate the helpful tips she provided as far as eateries she enjoys near her home. We definitely recommend Kim's place and look forward to staying with her again next time we are in the Buffalo area.
