This clean, bright, fully furnished one bedroom apt with a private balcony is on the second floor of large home in the very heart of Park Circle.
This is an old home - it used to be a church when it was first built! There is a large apartment downstairs, and a long-term tenant next door upstairs, so we ask all our guests to be considerate of noise when entering and leaving, as well as late at night after 10pm.
Also, smoking is not allowed on the property.
All utilities are included, but we ask people to be considerate of the electric usage (please don't leave the doors/windows open when using the heat or A/C) and we reserve the right to deduct excessive use of electric or water from the security deposit. (We have never had to do it yet - this is just included after one incident we had in another property quite awhile ago where a guest had the heat at 90 in the middle of winter and kept the door open - go figure!.)
Hola! Bien Venido! My name is Gretchen. I'm an artist, photographer, and filmmaker, and my home is a reflection of my interests. I love meeting people, and hearing about their lives and experiences. I like my home to be a comfortable, laid back place, where you will feel as welcome as family.
I've traveled throughout the US, as well as to the Bahamas and Bermuda, Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia (yes, I speak Spanish), and Ireland. It's hard to pick a favorite place, as everywhere I have gone I have met wonderful people who have made me want to go back again. That's one reason why I strive to extend the same hospitality to my guests - so they will have a wonderful trip they will always remember positively.
I love music of nearly every genre, especially live original material. I am an avid photographer, and incorporate my art and photography into each other. I really enjoy relaxing around the house with guests, cooking dinner (I prefer healthy foods, but won't turn down occasional comfort food!), and it seems I am always working on a project of one sort or the other.
