Walking distance to bike share, grocery store and several entertainment districts (Avondale, Forest Park, and Lakeview). Also close to downtown, UAB, St. Vincent's, and the airport.

Also note that although our listing accommodates "8" there are only beds for 4. I can provide up to 2 double-sized air mattresses but space will be pretty tight for this many guests.

I live and work next door and am happy to meet you upon check-in if you wish (depending on timing), and am available in person or via phone/text to help throughout your stay. I'm happy to provide recommendations for things to do in Birmingham. I enjoy meeting guests when circumstances allow, but I am equally happy to respect your privacy if that is your preference. It's up to you!
Note that it is an old house, and as a result can sometimes be a little warm in summer or a little cool in winter (when temps outside are extremely hot or very cold). It is comfortable, but you cannot perfectly control the climate in those extreme cases. We do have central A/C, central heat, and plenty of fans.

I work in educational publishing and am a mother to two boys, ages 5 and 9. My husband home schools our kids by day, cooks us wonderful food from scratch while he does so, and is restoring our new home by night. I'm also a keyboard player for Perilous Cole. We love music. I am easy-going and flexible, and want to help people appreciate Birmingham the way I do--it's a great city!
