Your "Retro Diner" room is in a basic 3 BR-home in retro/vintage style and has all you need to "survive" comfortably. At our reasonable rate do not expect Ritz Hotel like service, we are a simple AIRBNB hoping you'll feel here like home. If you need Thrill'N & Fancy then this place is not for you and better go on searching to find something where they thrill you with fancy rates. Located on NE side of Norman so in under 10 min. you are back on I-35. 5-10 min to Downtown, hospital, and OU Campus.

The space
Note: We did not get spared from the heavy hail storms this year and two windows got broken in the kitchen and boarded up. Getting insurance assistance and contractors is taking time and we appreciate your kind understanding and patience as we get things fixed up again. The house is still comfy to live in though .

Despite that some other things are on the list of upgrading still (upgrade bathroom, windows etc) this place is yet comfortable and has everything you need to replenish and "survive". We are true to the origins of Airbnb (except the air mattress) where you are welcomed in a humble home where people live.

Though you may feel like entering a museum - and some review critics smartly pointed out that "everything is just old" - but that is the point. You will be taken back to the early 70s and 80's where the 'older' generation may get a smile out of seeing daily used items from those 'ol'days' and the younger generation may get an opportunity to look at outdated gadgets that once were considered "state of the art"

Your room, decorated in Good ol' Days Diner themed style, has a full size bed, smart TV, desk, and small closet No, the phone is not hooked up but you sure may play with it and get a feel like we made calls in the 70's and 80's. Kitchen is fully equipped to prepare your meals and is for everyone to use. There is also complementary coffee to wake up right , no matter what time of the day. ;) We have a table outside in the back yard so you may dine with birds and squirrels as your guests. Washer,dryer, iron/board , we got that for you too.

Now, before you book: Please be so kind and have read all what we are offering. In a nutshell: You are looking at a private ROOM and not the entire house (please don't laugh , but I get to hear plenty "oh , I though I get the entire house to myself" ) . Know what you get and how little you will pay for all the conveniences accessible to you. If you want hotel service then please go there . But if you understand that you will be welcomed in a HOME where other people live and common areas are shared (it's not a display home nor a paradise resort) then please accept our invitation to come over and stay with us. Thank you for being our cool and valuable Airbnb-ers!

Welcome to one of our homes. I was born and raised in Germany and came to Oklahoma in 1991 for a "one year" exchange at the University of Oklahoma. A few years (oh well, decades) later I call it here my (Okla)Home(a). While I am a Chemical Engineer "by trade" I am now a "free lancer" in real estate. Besides regular rental homes I also have a few homes in the OKC Metro Area that are designated to accommodating Airbnb guests and travelers, may it be a day or a week or a year... Most homes are pet-free except for the place were I live. I have "fallen victim" to the current dog-throw-away society crisis and rescue dogs from shelters that are on death row. So If you dare to share a place with German Shepherds (I have six of my own plus an ever so increasing number of rescues) I invite you to to stay at my Dog Lovers Home in Moore. May be you fall in love with one and the option to adopt is open?
Our general all applying house rules are simple:
Respect everyone's privacy and leave the place the way you found it.
We do not allow smoking inside our homes (outside is fine) and absolutely no recreational drugs on the entire premises. While medical marijuana is legal in Oklahoma, but the foul odor is too invasive and disturbing so I will not allow any use thereof on my properties, nor any storage, nor trading, nor sharing of any marijuana products. I very much appreciate your kind respect

One more thing: Airbnb stands for AirMattress BnB, not A-Inn-Rated BnB. I am still holding true to the original way of Airbnb were you are invited to stay in our HOMES and NOT a Hotel or what ever kinda flamboyant vacation resort you may have in mind. Our places are simple, functional and provide all basics you may need to "survive", make your stay comfortable at a yet still affordable rate. While we thrive to keep the places at good repair, orderly and clean it is helpful to please keep in mind that our homes are shared with others and we depend on everyone doing their part to keep it that way. With costs so ever increasing we still self manage our homes and have family based cleaning assistance and maintenance crew so we can keep your stay budget friendly for you. With that said, if you are seeking fancy schmanzy schnick schnack accommodation, may be my places are not for you. If you want/need Hotel Service just please go there (or seek higher priced Airbnb categories) where you pay for all you won't need but still get charged extra. But if you appreciate no-nonsense down to earth stays then please be my guest !

I very much look forward to you Airbnb-ers and I hope to see you in one of my houses soon.
