Private 3rd floor bedroom. It's a cozy, spacious suite painted soothing tan with architectural dormers, 6 windows in total and hardwood floors throughout. The main area is 10 ft x 14 ft. Plus there's a great 7 ft x 7 ft corner office nook.
Ideally situated for those visiting The First State - so close to world-class museums, gardens and entertainment. Also convenient for business travelers visiting our corporate capital - bankers, lawyers and the like.
I offer nightly, weekend and multi-night stays as well as discounted weekly and monthly stays (price calculates automatically). If you're looking for future dates not currently open on my calendar &/or an extended stay, message me for availability.
There's a super comfortable full sized bed (pillowtop mattress with 3 inch memory foam topper) along with nightstand, bedside lamp, ceiling fan and 5x7 area rug.
There is also tons of closet space: hangers provided in 6 ft sliding door closet with rod & shelf above as well as separate 30" wide closet with rod & shelf above. Furthermore, there's built in cabinet storage with countless shelves (excessive, I know!).
Shared bathroom on 2nd floor plus powder room on 1st floor .
Cozy up in your private bedroom with shared hallway bathroom just a short stairway from your door (towels & toiletries provided).
Full use of the entire home's common areas - including the living room, eat-in kitchen, dining room & powder room, washer/dryer (detergent provided) & front porch / backyard. 32" TV with plenty of DVDs to watch in living room. Free high speed WiFi access (password provided upon arrival). There is plenty of free street parking available on my block.
Free breakfast/anytime snacks are provided - help yourself to the items I typically keep stocked in the fridge/pantry: orange juice, milk, fresh fruit, eggs, yogurt, toast, bagels, oatmeal, cereal, pancakes etc. You're welcome to bring your own food items & store them in the fridge. You can sit on the front or back porch to have your morning coffee/tea/hot chocolate (Keurig maker & K-cups available for you to use).
I was born & raised in Wilmington - plus even worked for the tourist visitor center - so I'm just the person to help you make the most of your time in our state as well as the region (you can easily take day trips to NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore & Washington DC). Plenty of guidebooks & pamphlets provided for you to browse as well.
**I DO have 2 cats & a small dog - during your stay, I may confine them to my personal bedroom. If you &/or your travel companion have pet allergies, please take this into consideration before making a reservation.**
Did I leave something out? Please feel free to ask.
I look forward to meeting you!
Mi casa es su casa! I want you to be comfortable during your stay, so you're welcome to put your feet up, eat or drink in any room and, of course, sleep in!
Just a few rules:
NO GUESTS - I'm happy to have you stay (of course!) but ask that you don't invite others over at any time.
NO SMOKING - Smoking is NOT allowed inside my home or anywhere on the property.
NO PETS - I'm very much an animal lover but can't host any visiting pets since I already have a small dog & two indoor only cats (chihuahua might be kept in my bedroom during your visit, unless, of course, you'd enjoy her company).
I've been an Airbnb host for over 3 years (since May 2013). It has been such a great experience that in July 2015 I expanded from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 5 bedroom home to accommodate more guests in a lovelier, more spacious home.
I've been blessed to have over 100 different wonderful guests (& even repeat guests) stay with me. Whether they stay a night, a weekend, the week, or a month or more (internships, work transfers etc), I always enjoy the conversation and friendships that are formed. I look forward to seeing my past guests when I'm in their area.
I love to experience all that life has to offer - from art to festivals to volunteering. I also enjoy live music and theatre as well as trying new restaurants/cuisines. I'm a positive person who's down to earth and ambitious (& a non-smoker - just thought I'd throw that in there). In life I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason - no such thing as coincidences.
Born and raised in Delaware and love it here but I renewed my passport last year & hear the world beckoning to me. I truly love to travel (did 4 months in Europe, 4 cruises, month long US road trip). In 2013 I spent 10 days in Hawaii - my first Airbnb guest experience, which inspired me to be a host myself. I value the personal enrichment of experiencing different cultures, languages and food. When I visit a place I like to get the "locals" experience and understand their daily way of life (plus they always know the best restaurants and things to do).
