Enjoy a bright private room with wifi, a desk, and full private bathroom in this quiet, cozy household.
The two cats and I love to host visitors for any length of time, and are conveniently located near both Kalamazoo College and Western University's campuses, and Downtown Kalamazoo. All are welcome!
There is a wonderful patio and small grill that can be used in the summer months, an open living and dining room space available for your use. There is a TV in the living room with Chrome connection and access to Hulu or Spotify. If you enjoy cooking or baking, there is fully stocked kitchen as well!
There is laundry in the basement if you need it, and your bedroom and bathroom will be your own private rooms.
Interaction with guests
I am available at the house, or via text during your stay should you have any questions or want any recommendations of things to do, see, or eat around town.
I work most week days but am often hanging around the house cooking or relaxing in the evenings and am happy to engage in conversation or not depending on your mood!
The cats are pretty friendly and love to be pet, but if they're in your way, it's fine to "send them to their room" for a bit as well.
Other things to note
While the household is just the cats and I, and we tend to be pretty low-key, we are located in a college neighborhood and many of our neighbors are students. Things tend to be quiet more often than not but there are occasional tailgating events or parties, so if you're looking for complete quiet, this may not be the place for you.
THE BASICS: I ask that if you use any of the common spaces, the kitchen in particular, that you clean up after
yourself. Regular cups and dishes used can be rinsed and loaded into the dishwasher. There's no specific quiet hours but if someone else in the house is sleeping or resting, please be respectful and aware of your noise levels. That said, the house is old and creaky - I am used to that and tune it out without issue :)
HOUSE KEY: Please leave the key in the lockbox at all times, I occasionally have pet sitters come by and they need access as well.
CATS: The cats are not allowed in the guest bedroom, guest bathroom, or front office. Please keep those doors securely closed. Please do not feed the cats unless you've checked with me first - they always act starved, but I promise, they're not. If they bother you at all, just let me know and I'll get them out of your way for a bit :)
CHECK OUT: Please leave the bed unmade, and any used towels on the floor. I will change the sheets after each
guest. If you have time, you can strip the bed, but if not, no worries.
My name is Brie and I live with my cat roommates in the wonderful Kalamazoo, MI. I work as a bookkeeper/financial adviser for several local small businesses and in my free time am training to be part of the Killamazoo Derby Darlins Roller Derby team.
Other things I enjoy include the circus, dancing, cat memes, laughing, my family, cooking, baking, board games, theatre, spreadsheets, fall, and decorative gourds.
I love to learn new things and meet new people both via hosting and travelling. See you soon!
