Quiet residential neighborhood within minutes of anything in the city with a comfy warm atmosphere. Across the street from the best park in town. Features include self-check-in. a 39' smart TV (with wifi but not cable), washer & dryer, two stall detached garage, grill, garbage disposal, and more.

There is also a tennis court, basketball court, sand volleyball, a playground & splash pad, a few baseball fields, and a walking trail around the park.

The space

I'm in a great neighborhood which is mellow and relaxing. Very close to everything on the NE side of Cedar Rapids. I am in Hiawatha, the town that borders Cedar Rapids. You can't really tell where Hiawatha starts and Cedar Rapids ends. It is just one big city.

My wifi works great, and the house to get it in top shape for my renters - new garage door, new blinds in all the rooms, new comforter, sheets, and pillows, new dresser and nightstand in each room, new office chair for the desk in the bedroom, and more! The bathroom was completely remodeled recently and includes a nice shower (but no bathtub).

The house is small and basic (approx. 750 sq. ft). I'm sure it could use some additional small improvements here and there, but it is presentable, clean, comfortable, and in a safe neighborhood with a great location near an amazing park while also being close to shopping and work locations.

It has one bathroom next to the two bedrooms. The bedrooms are right next to each other so there isn't a ton of privacy between the bedrooms, but it's cozy.

I am really just looking for people who enjoy the Airbnb experience. I worked hard to make this place as nice as possible.

3-day minimum (monthly renters preferred but open to all visitors).

I'm sure you will be very pleased with your stay, knowing I provide a comfortable and clean house where you can enjoy yourself.

Guest access

You have access to the entire house and all amenities. I've left a lot of items to get you started such as a new dishwashing sponge, hand soap, dishwasher liquid, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towel, tissue, bleach wipes, propane for grill, etc.

If you stay more than a week, I'd appreciate you buying your own items for use as the items I purchase are just to get you started and I'd like to conserve them for other guests as well.

Interaction with guests

I am available for whatever you need. There is a key lockbox for you to get into the house so I won't be dropping off a key. I probably won't be around unless you need me for something. I mow the lawn and do snow removal myself, and will try my best to give you a heads up on when I'll be there for those reasons.

Other things to note

Please note: The shower is fairly new in the house, but it is a shower only. It does not have a bath.
House Includes:
WiFi
Smart TV (no cable)
Washer/Dryer
Kitchen utensils, pots, pans, etc.
Hair Dryer
Iron/Ironing board
Bedding
Towels
Dishwasher
And MORE

Oven, stove, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, blender, outdoor grill, hangers in bedrooms, basic office desk and chair, 2 stall garage with garage opener, and probably other things I forgot. I'll try to include some basics to get you started such as toilet paper, washing machine liquid, paper towels, tissue, and propane, but please purchase your own items when you have a chance if you are staying longer than a week.

Across the street from the park (with walking trail)!

Dogs must be pre-approved before booking. Cats are not allowed at this time. Pet rentals may require an additional deposit for cleaning fees and possibly a larger monthly fee.

This is not a child proof house. For example, cleaning products are under the sink and there may be other considerations for children than I haven't thought about. Children are welcome and the responsibility is up to you.

Even though I love pets, they will only be considered on a case by case basis.

No smoking inside, no drugs, no guns or other weapons.

Please try your best to keep this place reasonably clean and not cause damage so that I can keep the house nice for the next guest : )

The fire pit in the backyard is for bonfires only and should be used with caution. The attic and crawl space of the house should be off limits. No loud parties or excessive visitors. Discard cigarettes safely (don't place in the garbage bins).

Doug's place is a nice place on a quiet street across from the park. It has all the amenities one could want for a comfortable stay. We particularly liked having a washer and dryer. All the routine sundries and toiletries were provided. Being a light sleeper it was a little too close to highway noise for my liking but my husband slept through the whole night with no issues. Thanks again for providing us with a nice place to stay.

We stayed at the house for a few nights while visiting friends and family. The house is in a decent area and I felt safe staying there. Since I had my parents as well, this space worked well for the 3 of us. Overall a great stay! :)
