Le logement
Thelma's Throwback Studio, named for our long-time neighbor and previous owner, is located in an OLD house in an OLD neighborhood. The vibe is eclectic with furnishings from the 1940s to the present. There is a combined bedroom/sitting room with one queen bed, full kitchen and bathroom. There is a smart TV with local channels and Netflix. The full kitchen has a stove, microwave, sink and refrigerator, dishes, basic cookware, salt and pepper, standard coffeemaker, Melitta pourover cone and French press coffee maker. Locally roasted organic coffees (regular & decaf), organic teas, organic half-n-half, and organic sugar and stevia are provided, but for longer stays, please plan to replenish these items on your own if you need more. City tap water is fine, but a water pitcher with filter (Brita) is provided. Sheets are 100% cotton. The studio is pet-free. Wireless internet provided. Recycling & composting available. Some of the energy you use during your stay will be provided by our recently installed solar panels!!

Please read the NEIGHBORHOOD section below for a full description of our neighborhood to make sure you will be comfortable here.

Laundry: There are shared laundry facilities located in the apartment house. This studio has its own entrance to the laundry room, with another entrance in the back yard for other guests. The laundry room is shared with the three other apartments in the house. We use non-toxic and fragrance-free products in the laundry room, and these products will be supplied during your stay.

The walls/floors of the house are solid, but not sound-proof. Old floors creak. Thus, you will be perpherally aware of guests in the 3 adjacent apartments and they will be peripherally aware of you.

Accès des voyageurs
The AirBnb is set up for independent check-in and check-out, but we are happy to make arrangements to meet you if you let us know in advance. We live just next door in the bright blue house and are almost always around. You will have access to the studio, a front porch seating area, the shared laundry room and the shared backyard deck. There is free street parking in front of the apartment house and in front of our own house next door---please follow the parking guidelines we send you to avoid parking in front of neighbors' houses :)

Autres remarques
HOUSE NOISES: The walls and floors of the old house are solid, but not sound-proof. Old floors creak. You will be peripherally aware of other guests staying in the other apartments in the big old house, and they will be peripherally aware of you . This particular Airbnb studio is on the FIRST floor with another apartment directly above. The old floors creak, so you will be aware of other guests walking around upstairs.

NEIGHBORHOOD: The studio is located in an OLD house in an OLD, diverse and somewhat run-down neighborhood. But the neighborhood is on the upswing! Please see NEIGHBORHOOD section to make sure you will be comfortable here.

For health and environmental reasons: we use zero-VOC paints, natural and non-toxic cleaning and laundry products, and we do not use fabric softener. We also just installed solar panels, so some of the energy you use during your stay will be provided by the sun!!

TIME: South Bend is on Eastern Time. For guests coming from Chicago, South Bend time is an hour later. Chicago is on Central Time.

South Bend, Indiana, États-Unis

Please be advised that our downtown neighborhood is OLD. Some houses are rather run-down; others are more cared for. Our block is fairly quiet, but the quiet is sometimes punctuated by urban sounds: music coming from cars, people socializing in the street, ambulance/fire truck sirens from the nearby hospital and fire station. Our neighborhood is multi-racial, multi-socio-economic, and multi-generational.

In terms of safety, we have lived on this block for over 30 years (many of them as a single woman) and have had very few issues. The apartment entrances are well-lit as are the parking areas. Our car has never been broken into, but we always take the precaution of locking the doors and removing any valuables. In our experience, walking to your destination is perfectly safe during the daytime. As for walking at night, we ourselves feel comfortable doing so, but visitors who aren't familiar with the area might be more comfortable driving or using a ridesharing service at night. That being said, the walking route from the Airbnb to downtown is getting better and better. The city has recently added pedestrian-friendly lighting to the streets, so most of the walking route to downtown is well-lit.

Although our block is old and time-worn, the neighbors, neighborhood association and the city are working to improve it. We ourselves are renovating two houses on the block, the city has torn down an abandoned house, and another neighbor has turned a vacant lot into a flower garden and installed a "Little Free Library." The neighborhood association and historic preservation group recently restored two other homes at the end of our block, and Habitat for Humanity recently built a new home on a previously vacant lot. A long-standing neighborhood bar with good food, Frank's Place, is just 1-1/2 blocks away. You can grab a coffee at The Local Cup, a neighbor-run community coffee house a short walk down Portage Ave (select limited hours). During the growing season, we have our own little neighborhood farmers market across from The Local Cup. A new locally-sourced restaurant is scheduled to open a couple of blocks away in November 2018 (unfortunately, still waiting for completion of building restoration as of June 2020). Lots of good things are happening!

If you look at our neighborhood on an online G map (street view feature), you will not be able to see an accurate picture. The street view images of our block are at least 5 years old and do not reflect the improvements that have occurred in the last few years.

A block away, Just across Portage Ave/William Street, you will find the Chapin Park Historic District, which has brick streets and beautiful and colorful historic homes, and makes for a lovely stroll. Many downtown locations, including restaurants and entertainment, are .5 to one mile from the studio.. If you enjoy a longer walk, there is also a pleasant walking route to the campus of Notre Dame.

My husband Eric and I enjoy staying in AirBnbs when we travel. We like AirBnb because we feel we have deeper and richer travel experiences by staying in local neighborhoods rather than in hotels. We look for Airbnbs that are eclectic, funky, colorful, homey, and comfortable. As Airbnb hosts, we also try to provide these features in our own Airbnb apartments and private rooms. We are both entrepreneurial types. Eric has a small business in downtown South Bend, and I take care of our Airbnb spaces. We are also renovating a couple of houses on our block and are happy to be a part of improving our neighborhood. We enjoy living adjacent to downtown, but also appreciate nature, bird-watching and solitude. We are environmentally conscious about what we eat, where we shop, how we live and how we work. We enjoy ballroom dancing, folk dancing, playing musical instruments, running, exercising at the neighborhood gym, and practicing yoga.

We live just next door in the bright blue house, so just send us a message if you need anything. There are 3 other Airbnb apartments in the house, so you may run into other guests in the yard or laundry room. You will also occasionally see us outside busying ourselves around the garage and yard.
