About this listing
Conveniently located single room in comfortable home near campus.
Enjoy the bright sunshiny yellow room in a home conveniently located in nice neighborhood on open tree lined street close to the University as well as parks, shopping and restaurants. Get to campus any way you like, it is just one mile away! Walk, bike, unicycle, rollerblade, bus, taxi or car! Convenient bus stops in front of my home! This is a perfect solution for folks with business at the University looking for a pleasant place to stay and relax too.
BEDROOM: Cozy and colorful teal room with full size bed. Perfect for a couple.
BATHROOMS: Two shared bath rooms, one featuring a jacuzzi tub.
LIVING ROOM: Beautiful bamboo hardwood floor living room with large screen television. No cable but I do have an HDMI wire to hook up Mac computer. This space is shared. I have an exercise dance pole in the middle of the living room. Please do not play on the pole. If the pole bothers you please let me know and we can arrange to take it down during your visit.
KITCHEN: Fully-equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. You are welcome to use these facilities.
BREAKFASTS: Tea and coffee are always available.
YARD: Another shared space is the back yard deck with chairs and picnic table for outdoor dining. Enjoy the flower gardens and watch the hummingbirds! Large backyard with fire pit means you can cook out, roast marshmallows, or relax by campfire.
INTERNET: We now have wireless internet.
PARKING: Parking in driveway and plenty on the street.
BIKING: In this bike friendly town, you may prefer a bike to get around! The city has an extensive network of bike lanes. I have a good selection of tools if you need to do a quick repair job. I can give you advice on local group rides or plan a visit to our closest mountain biking trails at Kickapoo State Park.
My home is a smoke-free drug-free. If you need to smoke please do so outside.

Other things to note
No pets please.
No smoking in the house, but you are welcome to smoke outside on our back deck overlooking our gardens. Dogs only. I do have a nice fenced in back yard that is convenient for dogs, but please clean up after them. I live in a quiet family neighborhood, so any events or parties must not be loud or otherwise disturb the neighbors.
