House Rules

Guests are welcome to smoke outside on the deck and can have small gatherings, especially if you are visiting friends in the area. This apartment is not set up for large parties.
Do not put anything other than toilet paper in the toilet. We use a septic system.
Please keep in mind if you have children that our apartment is on the second floor. Although the outside stairway was built with safety in mind, small children will need close adult supervision when going up and down the stairs. We are not responsible for injuries.
Finally, please leave the apartment in good condition. I do not have a cleaning crew. I clean the apartment myself; therefore, I ask that guests wash their dishes, place used towels and wash cloths in the laundry basket in the laundry room, wipe out the bathtub if excess products have been used, and see that rubbish is placed in the bins. And ALWAYS turn off the coffee maker. Thank you, in advance, for that:)

As a fellow Airbnb host I can tell you that Deni does an amazing job of hosting! Her place is very comfortable, well equipped, and for OU parents a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Athens. I can't say enough about how well Deni treats her guests!

The apartment was great, comfortable and spacious, and the location was quite serene and secluded but still conveniently close to Athens. I also loved how often and quickly Deni was in communication with me. The apartment has laundry facilities which were great after a day of kayaking. I highly recommend Water's Edge.

Response from Deni:
I'm really happy you enjoyed your stay with us. You are my hero, given the fact that you had a cold and went kayaking in what was pretty chilly weather! Take care and come back ay time.

The view from Deni's home is STUNNING. We happened to visit when the weather was perfect. Sitting out on the deck was lovely and we saw a lot of pretty birds. Every single thing we could need was provided, even brown eggs in the refrigerator. We will definitely be back next time we visit the area. This was our first airbnb experience and we were really happy with our choice to stay here.

I am a retired professor who teaches English part-time at Ohio University. My husband, Mark, is an art professor at a small college fifteen miles from here. Between teaching and raising kids, we also built this house from the ground up (I say "we," but Mark actually did most of the building:) Throughout our lives we have enjoyed hosting friends, family, and students' families who visit from around the world. We also enjoy traveling and meeting new people.
The kids eventually grew up and built lives elsewhere, and we were left with a big house that neither of us wanted to move away from; therefore, we turned a section of the house into a rentable space. The apartment is attached to our house but is very private and has a separate entrance. We are always happy to assist our guests (we are friendly), but we also respect your privacy. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance during your stay, and never hesitate to contact me with questions before your arrival. Mark and I hope you will enjoy your stay at Water's Edge.
