Just off the corner of Muscatine and First Avenue, with Hy-Vee Grocery store a mere block away, across the street from Walgreens, and a block from a pizza place, ice cream parlor, sub shop, gas station and other convenient businesses. Two blocks from a great bike path and only one mile from downtown. There's also a bus stop across the street that will take you directly to downtown Iowa City.
This is a very versatile house; you can stay with kids and it's well equipped with everything you need, or you can stay with a group of adults and it doesn't feel too young.
The house is a quintessential older Iowa City house. I've renovated as much as possible, fresh paint and the like, but it still retains the "charm" of a very vintage home built in the 50s. I've chosen to embrace the vintage aspect and the place is decked out with mid century modern furniture, fun copper pots, 1950s glassware and some modern art. If you're looking for something sleek and sterile, this is definitely not the right place for you; it is an old house and has its quirks.
Yard is fully available for your use, and fenced in so feel free to bring pets, just let me know ahead of time.
Parking: the single driveway holds two cars comfortably, but street parking also free and easily available if there are more then two spots needed.
Guest will have access to everything in the house, washer & dryer, yard, garage. All linens are provided (towels, sheets, etc.) and soaps, shampoos are all for your use. Kitchen is fully set-up, feel free to use anything you find there.
Check in: anytime after 3pm
Check out: anytime before 11am. If you're travel arrangements require early/later times, please just inquire and I'm happy to make it work if I can.
I'm available as much or as little as you like. Once the reservation is made I generally prefer to communicate through the Airbnb messaging system as it just keeps everything nice and neat. But of course I'm available by phone if that's easier in the moment.
Residential feel with everything you need very close by. Close access to downtown and the University, while in a great location on the East Side of Iowa City.
Bus stop across the street goes straight downtown. Guest AccessAccess to the whole house, laundry in the basement. Yard and grill available completely for you. Interaction with GuestsI usually do a self check in, which means you can arrive and depart whenever's convenient for you. I ask that you message me upon arrival & departure, but I live only a few blocks away so am around if you need absolutely anything. Otherwise will most likely let you enjoy the space in privacy. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is PERFECT for visitors. Walgreens is on the corner, Hy-Vee (with a Starbucks in it!) is a block away. Also within a two block range are a pizza place, a CVS, Shakespeare's (great local bar), a gas station, a few banks, and a few more quick serve restaurants (sub shop and chinese take-out). It has all of this right at your fingertips but the way that the house is situated you aren't looking at a business district and still really have a sense of the neighborhood. Great residents all around, and a wonderful off-street bike path just a block away. Did I mention only a mile from downtown? The bus stop leaves you right at the corner and the bus heads straight into Iowa City. Getting AroundBus Stop right at the corner takes you to downtown in minutes. Other Things to NoteCHECK IN: 3PM
CHECK OUT: 11AM
