Description

The Space

This space is a bedroom that has one queen sized bed and shares a bathroom with a studio apartment next door. The door to the room has a lock on it.

Bathroom: The full bathroom is shared with the adjoining studio apartment (also for rent on Airbnb). The bathroom is “Jack and Jill" style, which means that there are two doors. This allows for guests in both rooms to access the bathroom without having to enter “public" space. Both doors have locks on them. Please remember to unlock both doors when you leave the bathroom so as not to lock the other guests out! There is a also powder room below the stairs for all guests' (website hidden): The TV is connected to an over-the-air antennae and receives many local stations. There is also a Roku connects to it where you can find many free channels or to Amazon to rent a movie. You can also log into your own Netflix. To log out of it, you will need to choose “Option" and “Delete Channel".

Mini Kitchen - The room also has an arm chair, a small fold-down table for coffee or laptops, a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tea kettle and toaster. Coffee, coffee filters and tea, sugar and cream are provided. There are also a few wine glasses, coffee mugs, spoons, forks, paper plates and a cork screw / bottle opener available for your use.

Hair Dryer: You will find a hair dryer in one of the drawers below the TV.

Storage Space: You may use the drawers below the TV as well as the closet behind the arm chair. There should be several hangers in there for your use. If you need more, please let us know.

Linens & Towels: The sheets on the bed are clean and there should be clean towels in your room for you use. There are a few blankets in the closet should you need them.

Tourist Info: Tons of brochures and maps are in one of the drawers below the coffee maker as well. Feel free to take and / or leave what you want.

Temperature control: In the summer months, an air conditioner is installed in the window for your use. In early autumn, we leave a small space heater that you should feel free to use. Once the weather has turned cold enough to get the radiant heat system cranked up, the room should be quite cozy. If it is too stuffy, please feel free to crack the window for your comfort. Please close it before leaving as the thermostat is right outside of your room and it might cause the heater to work over time.

Parking - Depending on the season, we have different parking arrangements for our guests. Most of the year, we are happy to share our driveway with guests. During extremely snowy/ icy months (January and February), we cannot allow people to use our driveway as it is too dangerous for them and their vehicles. If this is the case, we will do our best to help you find parking. During the summer, (July and August) renters in the Studio Apartment will be given a key card to park at the parking garage at the end of our street. It is located next to the Westin Hotel. The card gives you entrance and exit any time. You may park anywhere there is not a "reserved" sign.

All Guests agree to indemnify and hold the Property Owners harmless from any liability for personal injury or property damage sustained by Guest or parties invited onto the property by Guest.

Interaction with Guests

The front door to our has an electronic lock on it, the code to which is sent to guests before they arrive via Airbnb communications system. This door and hallway are common areas for guests and our family. Guests DO NOT, however, pass through our living space. We ask guests to ring the door bell if they arrive before 8pm so that we can meet you and show you to your room. We send detailed check-in/ entry instructions to all guests before their arrival, so if you arrive after 8pm or we are not available to answer the door, you will be able to let yourself in. If you have any questions, you will have our phone numbers and you are welcome to call and / or text us. We have also compiled a blog with information about our house and neighborhood and recommendations for eating and activities which will be sent to guests upon confirmation.

The Neighborhood

Our street is beautifully tree lined, friendly and in an historic district. We are walking distance to many great eateries and drinkeries (how is that for a new word?) We are also very close to several music venues and walking distance from the Old Port.

Getting Around

There is a bus stop around the corner from our house with bus lines that will get you to the train and bus stations and the airport. You can also take the bus to a few nearby beaches (East End and Willard).
Bikes can be rented around the corner from our house for around $25 a day.
