This is a great place located in the heart of New Haven, CT. Just across the street from Walgreens, Yale University, two blocks away from Yale Hospital, 1-2 blocks away from award winning restaurants, nightclubs, the apple store, shopping and more. Breakfast is available & is based on my guest request.

When you are staying here as a guest you will also receive a zone parking pass which allows you to utilize the on-street parking in front of my house or within a three block radius of my area.

The space

I like to give my guest a quick brief showing house and giving some tips to make guest feels comfortable, Most of the time I'm out and busy working and sometimes I travel too, this is very quiet and clean house great for students, vacationers or other professionals. This the best location for easy access to Yale-New Haven Hospital or Yale University or Saint Raphael’s Hospital located here in the city. My home is cleaned bi-weekly by a cleaning company; the area in which I live is safe. My goal is to offer the best hosting service making a guest feel just like in his/her own house or that you're at a friends house.

Guest access

While you are here you have access to the entire space. There is one main entrance and a fire escape access in case of emergencies.

Other things to note

During the summer months in New Haven there are many public events such as concerts, Arts and Ideas Festival, gallery shows, plays and other events that take place right on the New Haven Green

Aspen is a great host! Booking the room in his apartment means some kind of living together with a best friend. Everything is just in place. Having a great time.

We had a wonderful time staying at Aspen's place. It is very comfortable, close to Yale University and most importantly, we were treated extremely well. I would definitely recommend it for a friend!

This was a phenomenal experience. I appreciated every moment. If you are doing a medical externship this place is perfect unless you are going to the VA. Terrific host and apartment.

I needed a place to stay while I took a summer class at Yale. Remembering sweltering summers past, I decided to forego the dorms and search AirBnB for a place with air conditioning, using their handy filtering option. Aspen's place was almost twice as expensive as several similar places without air conditioning, but it cost about the same as the dorms. With his generous promise of gourmet breakfasts every day, and dinners twice a week, I figured it would be an even swap. So I booked his place for thirty days, risking his strict cancellation policy and trusting that it would be a positive experience, or that AirBnB would have my back if it turned out otherwise. Unfortunately, as it turned out, Aspen lied about the air conditioning, both in the listing, and in his subsequent personal communication with me. He also lied about the gourmet breakfasts. He took me out to breakfast on the first day after I arrived, and talked a lot for several days about how he had to go grocery shopping, but his cupboards remained bare for the first two weeks of my stay. Eventually I figured out that I would have to buy myself coffee and filters if I wanted to make it for myself in the mornings rather than buy at coffee shops every day. He also misrepresented the availability of a private writing area. I very clearly communicated that I would be there to take a writing class, and asked whether there was a desk in the room before I booked. Aspen described a full office, but this office was not only in the common area, but it was his office that he used every day, and therefore not available to me as a place where I could write. It's also worth mentioning that he very inaccurately misrepresented the "interactions with guests" portion of his listing, and carried this misrepresentation through to subsequent communications. I was very much under the impression that I'd have the place mostly to myself, and even that he'd be traveling most of the time, but this was definitely not the case. Aspen is a very gregarious person and I will say that we did have some great conversations - but ultimately, that's not why I was there, and it was extremely frustrating having to find coffee shops and libraries and other public places where I could write after spending so much money on a place where I expected to find privacy. He eventually brought a tiny desk into my private room after I complained to AirBnb. Speaking of my private room, I didn't find out until I arrived that my bed was a waterbed. To say that this was an uncomfortable experience is an extreme understatement. After ten days or so of practically drowning in my sleep every night I finally paid for a hotel room, and asked AirBnB about my options. They forced an uncomfortable interaction between the host and I, and ultimately rejected my petition for...

Aspen was amazing. So warm and welcoming. Incredibly helpful and went above and beyond. He waited for work packages for me, showed me around, gave me tips on where to go and how to get there. First class host!

Aspen was a great host! Super warm & welcoming, and went out of his way to accommodate me. He showed me around the Yale Campus, directed me to all the close by amenities, and was a great resource for info about getting in & out of NYC. Above & beyond. And he makes an amazing breakfast!

My place in located one block away from Yale New Haven Hospital and two blocks away from the campus of Yale University. When guest stay at my place in New Haven they are sure to get one of a kind experiences around the city and surrounding thrilling food towns. I take my guest to the best go-to spots where sometimes my guest receive super creative dishes. I have been fortunate enough to take some people on excursions in New York City.

As a guest anywhere, I am simply quiet and observant and take everything in. I love to laugh and share great moments, whether I am by myself or meeting others. I treat people the way that I would like to be treated, with the acknowledgment that some people will disappoint. However, it doesn't stop me from being gracious and honorable.
