Interaction with guests
This house is a triplex with an art studio in the back. I live upstairs and there is another airbnb in the front of the house, across the hall from your apt. The yard is a communal area. All living spaces are separate from one another and completely private.
In all humility, this neighborhood is happenin. We are the heart of the city; authentic, truly diverse and rich with history. Located one block off of 'Eat Street', German, Greek, Jamaican, Malaysian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Middle Eastern, coal fired pizza and an amazing organic market/deli are all within steps from your back gate or within a block or two. Relax with a great cup of coffee at the 'Spyhouse' at the end of the alley or enjoy a fantastic breakfast/lunch/dinner at the 'Copper Hen' right across the alley.
1/2 block from public transit. In the warmer seasons, 'Nice Rides' (rentable city owned bicycles) can be found within a block from this location.
