2nd floor incl bedroom, sitting area, full private bath & balcony, separate entrance, quiet residential neighborhood by shopping, parks, bike path to UTRGV. Please note: no smoking or pets on property due to allergies.
The garden yard has privacy fencing in a secure, quiet neighborhood, but is also a few blocks from the campus of the City of Edinburg, Hidalgo County, and University of Rio Grande Valley. The second floor of our cottage has a large bedroom-sitting room, walk-in closet, full bath down the hall, and a balcony overlooking the garden & neighborhood. There is a separate HVAC system and password-protected wi-fi network for the area. The room is furnished with shelves, table & chairs, desk, lighting, and a new queen bed. There is parking in the drive and street, quiet & secure.
Guests have access through a stairs to the second floor balcony where there is an entry with a touchpad deadbolt. The stairs, and the fact that this is an older cottage may be a drawback for someone with a special access need. The upstairs has a light kitchen in the hall, microwave, small fridge with freezer, various appliances, counter & storage. Most of the first floor is private but guests may possibly use the laundry or kitchen for breakfast & cooking light meals as coordinated with the downstairs guest or occupant/owner - extensive, complex cooking is discouraged, though often long-term guests may have exceptional need when they have guests, etc. There are many good, inexpensive restaurants nearby. The dowstairs laundry has a separate locking entry with access arranged with the downstairs guest or owner

We have stayed with may Airbnb hosts and are well reviewed and have hosted Airbnb guests at our other home. We are well reviewed there also. We enjoy visiting with guests & hosts, typically at the beginning or ending of the day. When we travel we are generally out and about and appreciate guest who enjoy a mix of socializing, having their own agenda, and privacy. We don't usually turn the whole house over to folks initially but let the interaction be guided by the evolving mutual comfort level.
Its true the Rio Grande Valley is a bird and butterfly watching area, especially during migrations. Our yard is mostly fenced & planted, with birdbaths & birdseed scattered about. Current visitors include a gold-crowed woodpecker, a kiskadee, red-wing blackbirds, and a pair of chachalacas. A variety of Interesting day trips include Laredo, TX, and Nuevo Progresso or Reynosa Tamaulipas Distrito Federal, Mexico. San Antonio is a bit further off but a great overnight trip. Museums, theaters, galleries, abound. Corpus Christi & South Padre are simple day trips. Nearby McAllen & Harlingen have fine airports. These listings may include special arrangements at host's discretion. We try to provide a flexible, pleasant stay & encourage you to communicate. We are airbnb guests as well as hosts. Please check our reviews. My wife hosts the "Rock & Tile House" in Jacksonville, Texas, 75766.
We are Airbnb hosts and frequent Airbnb guests ourselves. Please, if you are new to Airbnb, complete verifications, including government issued ID before sending reservation requests. We make every effort for our guests to know us and for us to know them, both to insure you enjoy your stay and for mutual safety. Guest should value their privacy and that of others. The two units in the cottage are quite separate. Access to the main kitchen & laundry varies with need. The occupants of the lower unit, where those facilities are located, may work cooperatively with the upstairs guest to accommodate access, yet maintain privacy. Enjoy the garden & yard area, sorry, absolutely no smokers, nor pets on premises nor yard due to allergies. The pricing indicates no charge for extra guests because we can only accommodate 1 or 2 guests at a time in either unit for this listing, sorry, i.e. no "extra" guests. Possibly an exception the downstairs unit which has two bedrooms in which case an extra guest charge would apply or for the upstairs unit where exception can be made for a small child who will share your bed or couch. Most experienced and well reviewed Airbnb travelers should be quite comfortable with us and us with them. Your space & privacy will be well respected, ours similarly. Tidiness is a virtue.

Retired, I occupy myself with gardening, reading, cooking, travel, landscaping, maintaining our 80-year-old home. My wife, Jean, is a landlord and keeps busy with her tenants and dozen rental homes. We enjoy travel and lately have been visiting central Texas and the Rio Grande Valley where we have a cottage in Edinburg. We have used airbnb in the SF Bay and other areas and shared our homes with family, friends, and short-term roommates throughout our lives so we know how to be quiet, considerate quests and hosts.I've traveled around the U.S., incl. Hawaii, Alaska, Florida, Washington (St & DC) Germany, England, Samoa, Guam.
