Where you’ll be

Emporia, Kansas, United States

We are in a mid-century neighborhood near ESU campus & downtown. There are river walking trails nearby and easy access to the country and gravel roads for bicyclists.

Do-B's Burger Barn has something for everyone and is in walking distance at 12th Ave & East St. Downtown you will enjoy Ru Yi (Asian), Amanda's (sandwiches), Casa Ramos (Mexican) and Bobby D’s Barbeque.

Radius Brewery has award winning signature craft beer and Mulready's Pub is a great place to relax.

Be sure to stop in at the Sweet Granada for delicious chocolates.

Ad Astra Food & Drink is only a 20 minute drive to Strong City, when you head out to the Tallgrass National Prairie Preserve or Pioneer Bluffs, all in the wonderful Flint Hills.

I LOVE LIFE, nature, spiritual and personal growth, healing, fun with friends & family, art, music, movies, photography, travel, comedy, good food and much more. I have travelled to Canada, Europe and Japan. I lived in Kansas my first 24 years and returned in 2007 after living in Alaska 9 years, Oklahoma 21 years and California 5 years. I enjoy hosting people from around the world who come to Emporia for a variety of reasons. I've learned many new things from guests and hope you enjoy your stay at Marvin Gardens. I do my best to make it pleasant. It's also fun to be an Airbnb guest and discover how other hosts do things differently. We enjoy swapping stories and sharing tips.

During your stay

Each level operates independently (except for HVAC) and you will probably not see me, unless there is an emergency or you invite me to visit. I am available between 9 AM and 9 PM if you need anything. Please send a text via the Airbnb message system.

If I need to pass through from the garage to use the inside stairs because of inclement weather, or to carry heavy objects, if possible I will let you know in advance. I will knock and call out to let you know I'm coming.

Usually when I need to talk in person to guests in the basement, I will call, text, knock or ring your front doorbell.

My car is parked in the garage that you pass through, so you may occasionally hear me come and go even if you don’t see me.
