About This Listing
The house is a 2br, 1000sf, 1890's bungalow located in Burlington's Old North End neighborhood. A very close walk to Church Street and The Waterfront. The house is old, quirky, charming, and cozy.
The space is cute and comfortable. You need to know that I live here with my daughter when I'm not renting it out. Living downtown is fun and convenient and that's what most of my guest like the most; its proximity to Church Street.
Private DOWNSTAIRS bedroom : full size bed, small closet, shoe closet, night table, and window. The bedroom is small but private
Semi-private UPSTAIRS attic bedroom: (this bedroom is used as a child's bedroom but can accommodate adults) full size bed with down comforter, 19" flat screen tv with Roku set-up for streaming netflix and other online sites. High speed internet but no cable tv (cable tv in living room ONLY). bookcase/shelves, games (chess, checkers, LIFE, ect., vintage vanity, and an empty hanging rack for your clothes. This room is the only upstairs room in the house and has very low ceilings. The room is heated with an electric ceramic wall panel that heats the room nicely. The a/c unit upstairs has three settings (a/c, fan, and dehumidify) its fairly easy to figure out. Please make sure it's either on fan or a/c because the dehumidifying mode requires drainage, which it's not set up for. The room does not have a door but the space is big enough that privacy is not an issue. (full size air mattress available for extra guests and a pack n' play).
Living room: couch and 32" flat screen tv set up with Xfinity and Roku
Bathroom: tub and shower, clean towels, shampoo/conditioner, hair dryer, flat iron, curlers
Kitchen: gas range, sink (no dishwasher), table that seats 4 (extra chairs available), all use of dishes, utensils, appliances (french press, blender, mini-food processor, juicer, toaster oven), and food/drink.
The house is located in the Old North End section of Burlington, Vermont. A six minute walk to Church Street (where all the major shops and restaurants are) and 3 minute walk to battery park which has spectacular views of Lake Champlain.
One off street parking spot and plenty of on street parking (with a provided guest parking pass). Plenty of nearby public transportation if you wish to travel outside of downtown Burlington.
The house is charming, cute, and cozy. It's old (1890's) but very clean. To keep costs low I ask that you leave the house as clean as you can. I don't charge a cleaning cost to make the space more affordable. I don't expect visitors to clean or change bedding but please try and leave things as close to the way it was when you arrived. If you would rather be charged a cleaning fee and not have this responsibility please let me know.
Guests will have access to the entire house.
Interaction with Guests
Mostly I have very little interaction with houseguests. I try my hardest to be available via phone, text, and email. I have a caretaker that lives nearby incase of any issues that arise needing a hands on solution.

From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
we had a wonderful time at eliza's apartment. everything is well organized and clean, super cozy! the place is also very conveniently located, downtown is 5 min walking as well as the river front. would gladly recommend it.
I really wanted to like this apartment, but for me there were two big negatives. One is that although the house rules include "no smoking," there is a noticeable smell of cigarette smoke, even though there is an air freshener plugged into every room. The smell is strongest in the downstairs bedroom.
The other challenge I had was that I stayed one night and then was supposed to return several days later. I received a message from Eliza after my first stay that there had been a mix up and the apartment might not be clean in time for my second stay. Unbeknownst to me, she then went to an area where she had no cell service while I sent her several messages asking to clarify whether the apartment would be ready or not. The day before my second stay, I still had not heard from her and scrambled to find an alternate place to stay.
If these issues were resolved, this would be a good place to stay. It is located a few blocks from beautiful Battery Park (including a great playground) and also a few blocks from downtown Burlington. The interior of the house is clean, decluttered, and calming.
If you are above average height, you should know that the ceiling in the kitchen is very low.
Eliza's place is centrally located to the downtown area, and we were able to walk to restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is a bit noisy with students hanging out on the front porches late at night. We parked on the street with Eliza's visitor parking pass. The place itself is small butt comfortable. The upper bedroom has a very low ceiling height, mind tie head! It smelled a bit funny, probably from the cleaning products used. Overall we had a great stay and I recommend this place.
This is a really cozy little place. Lots of room to spread out, very comfy furniture, extremely convenient to downtown. I would absolutely stay here again.
