A great location near downtown, several wonderful restaurants, a terrific coffee shop and bookstore (New Bo Books). Condo is in an old brick factory building, complete with all kinds of character, plus all the modern amenities (big jetted tub and shower, cool television that rotates so you can watch it in the living room or in bed). Our host was easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed.

This was our first trip to the area, for our son's wedding in Iowa City. Turns out it was graduation weekend in IC and all the hotels were booked (or outrageously priced), so I started searching in Cedar Rapids and found John's airbnb loft in the NewBo area of CR. What a great find! John was a reliable correspondent, answering all questions promptly and courteously. The loft, which is in a beautifully renovated warehouse is easy-to-find, easily accessible, roomy, and has all modern conveniences, from a whirlpool tub to a Keurig single cup coffee brewing machine. We spent 2 nights there, and found the king-sized bed comfortable, and the area very quiet. The TV reception wasn't great (basic cable and not the clearest picture), but he also has NetFlix, which looked great--though we never had time to watch. John's note of instruction is clear and informative, with extra info about local attractions. We found the place comfortable and clean, and would stay here again in the future. Thanks, John! - Nancy and Wyatt, Austin, TX.
John's loft was a lovely place to stay. The neighborhood is great, with several restaurants and the Market nearby. The loft was clean and bright, and John went above and beyond to accommodate us.
Incredible experience! The space was lovely, we were warmly greeted and given a thorough walk-through of everything we could have possibly needed to know, including great spots to visit around town. I would highly, highly recommend.
Fantastic rental! Prior to our arrival, we had very detailed instructions on how to access the home (since he wasn't home) and once we arrived we fell in love with the loft! It was comfortable and clean in a great neighborhood. You are within walking distance of nice restaurants and markets and we felt safe walking several blocks for dinner. We will definitely stay there again!!
I rented John's condo loft as a surprise for my fiance's birthday. We actually live in Cedar Rapids and have always appreciated the architectural features and historic charm of the warehouse district. It was fun to experience the loft lifestyle and get away for a night.
John was very easy to work with and flexible with our check-in / check-out times.
The loft features many upscale amenities such as inlaid hardwood floors, gourmet appliances, and a great whirl pool tub and multi jet shower. The bed had very nice linens and was extremely comfortable.
Although snow covered, the roof top deck gave a picturesque view of the city.
Within two blocks walking distance is the New Bohemia (Newbo) historic district. For the beer enthusiast, the restaurant/pub called Parlor City has over 50 some crafts from the U.S. and abroad. Also live music most Thurdays-Sunday. The area is also home to many family owned businesses such as coffee shops, book stores, antique shops ,etc.
We would definitely stay again, well worth the money.
We really enjoyed our stay at John's loft. We were visiting family in Cedar Rapids, so was great to have our own space near by. Much better than staying at a hotel. thanks.
It was a pleasure having John and his girlfriend to stay at our place. They have been wonderful to communicate with, were very respectful of the house rules, and left the apartment in clean condition. We would welcome them back any time.
Great guest. Very quiet. Left early on the morning of departure but washed dishes before leaving. Welcome back anytime.
John was a great guest. He's a good communicator and a self-directed traveler. He left my condo in tiptop shape. I highly recommend him as your next houseguest.
john was easy to communicate with and tidy up the place before they left. thanks john!
