Hannah's Haven - a private apartment
Hannah's Haven is a cozy 2nd floor apartment in my home, with a separate entrance. My youngest daughter, Hannah, lived here for 5 years. It was a Haven for her, hence the name. It is in the historic Oakland neighborhood of Topeka. Off street parking is in back, off a well-lit alley. It's in a residential area, but convenient to downtown Topeka, the Capitol and our 3 hospitals. It is nicely decorated, fully equipped for short- or long-term stays, and has plenty of space for one or two guests. The apartment has been redecorated and there are lots of windows, so lots of light. I think that's my favorite feature of the whole house. The kitchen sink and counter have been upgraded to make cleaning up much easier. The bedroom has a queen size bed and there is a twin size air-bed, the height of a regular bed, which can fit in the living room. The entire space is for for my guests and the separate entrance makes it private. This apartment has a separate entrance, so guests have private access to this completely furnished space. There is a covered patio with furniture next to the detached garage at the back of the property. That is a available for guests, as well, weather permitting. If you book my place, it will be my privilege to host you. Good communication is important for a good guest-host relationship. When you arrive, please read my house manual. It has important information for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. You will be able to reach me by call or text to my cell phone. Oakland is an ethnically diverse community, which makes it fun to live here. Germanfest in early June is within walking distance of my house. The annual Fiesta Mexicana in mid-July is also within walking distance of my house. Topeka Transit buses travel throughout Topeka. The nearest bus stops are on the street in front of a neighboring house, and to the side of the house across the street. There's an app to track the arrival of your bus. For driving, it is reasonably close to I-70. Topeka streets are on a grid. The main numbered streets run East and West, and the main named streets run North and South. I will be happy to give local directions. It's just half a block from The Pizza Parlor, a popular eating place in Oakland, for decades. This new location is large and has lots of TVs, so it's a great place to watch whatever sporting event is a must see. On the other end of the scale is Chez Yasu, a French restaurant with a Japanese chef (who studied in France). It is about a 15-minute drive. The food is excellent and highly recommended by Hannah, who lived in France for a summer. We only go there on very special occasions, but it is worth the higher price. There are other unique places to eat and see in Topeka, which is an easy city to navigate. Just ask me for suggestions and directions. Some of my suggestions are in the house manual you will see when you arrive.
