About This Listing
Bedroom with double bed in home with small family, cat, and dog on eastside of Indianapolis, 10 miles from downtown.
One bedroom for rent in home with family with 2 children (1 double bed). Access to entire home is included (full kitchen, large screen TV with DVD/Blu Ray/Wii collection, including a growing Bollywood film stash). You would have your own bathroom (shower and bathtub) down the hall, and linens are provided. We also have a twin size air mattress that would fit in the room so that we could accommodate 3 people.
You are welcome to join in family (vegetarian) meals. We have 1 adult bike that you may use during your stay. We have a computer with Internet access and wireless access.
We have a feisty indoor-outdoor cat, so beware, as well as a energetic French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix. Children and pets are more than welcome here!
Home is about 15 minute walk to public bus stop and 10 miles from downtown Indianapolis. Cheap, fun option for people wanting to go to the myriad number of sporting events in the city (US Swimming Nationals, Pacers NBA games, Colts NFL games, Indy 500 or other car racing events, AAA team Indianapolis Indians, and others). Indianapolis has the biggest children's museum in the world, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.
Our house was featured on WTHR Channel 13 in April 2013 as part of segment on "shared economy" and airbnb's role in that. Watch it at (website hidden)(phone number hidden)/hoosiers-finding-good-deals-better-living-through-share-economy.

Interaction with Guests
We are always around, love a little conversation, but try to not invade anyone's space.
We live on a cul-de-sac so traffic is limited. If you have a car you can easily and safely park on the street in front of the house or in the very-inclined driveway. If you have a motorcycle, you can park it in my garage.
You'll have to have a vehicle here; the walk to the bus stop is about 15-20 minutes and it takes about an hour to get downtown from our house on public transportation.
We ask that you are quieter and/or use bottom floor of house (we have a tri-level) after 9 PM while children are sleeping.
No smoking in house or garage. We have an front and side porch where you can smoke outside.
This was my first stay on my way from the east to the west coast. Alicia was there to greet me and gave me a tour. Exactly as pictured, very clean, and plenty of room. I brought a bottle of homemade Kombucha and we sipped and shared stories. She is an extremely intelligent, trusting, and balanced person. I had a bathroom all to myself and she opened her whole house, to come and go as I wished. I felt like one of the family!
Our visit was short but we had a great time with Alicia and her girls. They made us feel welcome and the coffee in the morning was a great send-off!
I didn't get to meet Alicia, unfortunately, due to my tight schedule. But she made it very easy for me to check in and provided all the information I needed. It was easy to communicate with her before and during my stay, and she answered my questions quickly. The guest room was easy to find and was quite comfortable.
Alicia is kind enough to let us make reservation knowing that we would arrive late. The girls are very welcoming. The location made it perfect for our short stay on our long trip.
Alicia was the consummate hostess, to the point of allowing me to park my motorcycle in her garage for the night and having a lovely supper for me when i arrived. Communication was perfect and they were truly a joy to stay with.
I had a great stay with Alicia. Alicia and her daughters were very welcoming, even though I arrived quite late. The house is immaculate and the neighborhood nice and safe. Highly recommend.
About the Host, Alicia
Working ovo-pesco vegetarian environmentalist mom moonlights as a translator. My oldest girly girl loves to read, rollerblade, ride her bike, do crafts, and watch movies. My youngest tomboy girl is a bundle of energy; she loves to torture our cat, eat her vegetables, draw, read, and play barbies. Our cat and dog have a love/hate relationship, but I'd say the cat has the upper hand.
