The SpaceThis house is just 3 miles from downtown Greenville with easy access to the Swamp Rabbit Bike Trail and I-385. The house can comfortably fit 8 FAMILY members. A couple in the Master, a couple and 2 singles in the Spare, and a couple in the Suite. Guests will have access to the common areas of the house; Living room, dining room, kitchen with breakfast bar, Master bedroom with a Simmons queen size bed, the Spare room with one queen air bed and two twin inflatables or a queen air mattress (in the suitcases with the bedding), and one bathroom with double vanities. the Suite has a Simmons Queen mattress on a box spring on the floor and it has its own bathroom included.
The Suite is better suited for adults than children and a couple sharing a bed rather than 2 singles because the bathroom is part of the room. The Suite is locked until the guest count is above 5 allowing a family of 5 all to stay for the base price. If you want the extra bed and bath, just increase your guest count to 6 and I will give you the code. I need to know an actual guest count to be sure that there are adequate linens and such. The number of guests you put into Airbnb's guest count determines how the fees are calculated. There is an additional charge of $10 per person/per night over the guest count of 5. This additional charge covers the extra cleaning and linens. HOWEVER, if you are staying for 7 days or more, there is a discount that is calculated in and there is also a discount for 28 days or more AND we can negotiate. I will charge $10 per person/per night for 6 to 8 people for a weekend, but beyond that is negotiable.
The Studio @ Arts & Crafts House, which is a separate unit, may be booked separately if it is available and that guest has a separate parking space in front of the tree.
There is service for 8. There is a set of pots and pans, cooking utensils, toaster, coffee pot, etc. There is a 40" TV, Cable, Wi-Fi, washer & dryer are available in the laundry room on site in a different building. There is NO ON-STREET parking, but there is room for 3 cars in the driveway. Guest AccessAccess to the House is by a code which will be the last 4 digits of the phone number you have listed on Airbnb. The front light is on 24/7. I can see you on the porch or in the driveway on my security cameras so I can help you with getting in if you have trouble with the high tech lock. I can also talk to you through the speaker on the camera, but here is about a 10 second lag. Interaction with GuestsI am not usually on site, but there may be times when I will occupy the Studio Apartment behind the house.
The Studio Apartment may be rented separately and that guest has a separate parking space in front of the tree. This unit might also be available if your group needs an additional real bed and bathroom. It is booked separately on Airbnb and is called the Studio @ Arts & Crafts House.
Please communicate with other guests on the property. The NeighborhoodI lived here for over 12 years in this house. It is an older neighborhood that had it's hey-day around 1920, so some of the houses have not been kept up and some have been recently renovated. Some are owned by people who live here and some are rentals. ( I own 2 more houses in the neighborhood.)
I love that we are so close to the Swamp Rabbit (bike) Trail. I love all the cool things that happen downtown. This weekend Artisphere celebrates local artists with a street festival that takes place all weekend. There is "A Taste of Greenville" in the fall. The Greek festival is hosted at the Greek Church grounds during April. And, unless they've changed it while I've been gone, there was music Friday nights in front of the hotel with local talent and I especially liked the Jazz. There are lots of great restaurants and shopping downtown. And the Farmers' Market is downtown from 8am to Noon. There are always shows at the different theaters, Greenville Little Theater, Warehouse Theater, Greenville Children's Theater, The Peace Center and you can find concerts at Furman and Bob Jones Universities. Wow, I'm starting to wish I hadn't left. Oh, wait, we don't have and ocean here. See my listing Nikken Wellness Room, Hilton Head Island, 29926 Getting AroundThe bus stop is at the end of the street, just a short walk, and will take you to the depot downtown where you can transfer to lots of locations. There is also a free trolley that I've never ridden so I don't know where it goes, but I think it goes to the ball park.
Need directions? You can come in from so many different directions. Tell me from where you are coming, if you are driving or flying and which airport you are coming into (Greenville, Charlotte, Atlanta, Asheville) and I will do a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map and give directions with landmarks with what I think is the best way to navigate through Greenville. Of course, AirBnB will block that specific information until you have a confirmed reservation, but I can give you approximate times and mileages and proximity to places. For instance, someone asked me about the distance from a local school and I was able to tell her, 3 miles, 9 minutes. The house numbers are funky, as is the case sometimes in old neighborhoods. The numbers go something like, 6, 8, empty lot because the house burned down, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) but GPS thinks it is 102. Other Things to NoteI lived in the house for over 10 years and do most of my own maintenance, so please call me with any concerns. I often can help with a problem over the phone or direct it to my trusted workmen.
