Cozy and colorful private room in downtown SLC

Welcome! We have shared accommodation, as well as private guest rooms to serve you!

Accommodation: Queen sized bed in the Salt Lake City Downtown Neighborhood--right in the middle of all that's weird and wonderful about Salt Lake City.

Your bed is the Colorful Room, on the upper level of the main house. There is a full bath and kitchen. We have a large garden, sun-room and patio complete with fire-pit and grill as well as indoor commons area. We invite you to hang out anywhere and as much as you like.

Come enjoy Salt Lake City a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants as well as large scale shopping centers and grocers. We've got amazing breweries; Epic, Uinta, Wasatch, Squatters, amazing Thai at Chanon Thai, several incredible pizzerias such as Settebello's Napoliana style pizza, a tea shop, 2 French bakeries, the delicious Banbury Cross Donuts, all within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Broadway theatre, live music at the Urban Lounge or a show at Capitol Theater.

We have frequent block sized art gallery strolls. Check to see if there's one during your stay. Downtown Alliance Farmer's Market is every Saturday from June until October. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, bicycle pianos, Native American drumming circles at Liberty Park, fab art and funky attire all within walking distance of our front door.

Portions of the Urban farm are dedicated to well... farming. Feel free to check out our quirky birds and see what the garden is growing. Also, we are pet friendly!

We are on several major bus lines, one block from the Trax free zone and one block from a designated city bike share route. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, City Creek Mall, Temple Square and the Salt Palace Convention Center.

Feel free to stay as long as you like...we want our home to feel like home to you while you're here!

Lastly, this is a full home. It is likely you will see other guests and housemates. We do our best to accommodate everyone. As such we have among the lowest rates in town. I will say that our home is not the Ritz. If you expect that then you will be disappointed. We've been told we have a hostel feel. This is the feel we are going for and these are the types of guests we hope to attract. If you are going to be rude or critical of our home then please book at a hotel. If you are going to be down to earth, friendly, respectful and communicative then we do our best to do the same and we would love to host you :)

If you need an additional twin bed let me know a week prior to your arrival and I can put it in the room

We have coded entry. Door code will be provided upon booking. Feel free to park on the street but watch for any no parking signs. There is also one little parking drive in front of the house. Alternatively you may park in our backyard lot. Access is to the south of the house adjacent to us and then around back.

We are open and friendly to interact with guests. Engage with us and we are likely to engage back :) Please know that we are not traveling as you are. We are here living our day to day. If we seem busy it is not because we are ignoring you or unfriendly, but likely just distracted. We will always try our best to say hi.

We are so close to everything. I love being able to walk everywhere I need to go.

We are right by the library station for Trax. There are major bus lines and urban bicycle shares nearby as well!

Also, we are pet friendly!

If you need a left-behind item shipped out to you, the cost is a minimum of $20 for my time, plus any shipping costs.

Great place for the price. Brent was awesome and easy to reach and communicate with. The bed was really comfortable, and the cats are super friendly and awesome -- one of them slept with me both nights. Bathroom is shared with quite a few people and could have been a bit cleaner. The house was nice and warm too, even though it was dead of winter. Number of house guests and shared bathroom aren't ideal if you're traveling for business, but this place is great if you're cool with a crash pad style vibe and want some real local flair.

Comfy room. Location is close to most things but the area seems a bit sketchy. This is definitely a hostel, but not a nice one. Bathroom was terrible and there was hair everywhere.

I have been in Salt Lake City for 5 years now. For fun, I build furniture, restore things, travel, snowboard/ski, cook, garden and enjoy being social. I have a flock of fowl and two cuddly cats.

I want you to feel at home so I'll do what I can to prepare you for a comfortable and easy stay. I'll help with any questions you may have of the city or neighborhood.

I speak Italian and Spanish. I speak French at intermediate level.

In life, I believe in communication, respect and freedom.
