Cozy house tucked at the end of a quiet cul de sac with lots of outdoor space. Stay in a private bedroom with ensuite bathroom and enjoy the use of our large backyard and garden. Perfect for writers looking for inspiration or a quiet place to study.
Our large private bedroom with ensuite bathroom is on a separate floor from the rest of the house, offering you extended privacy if desired. There is a comfortable den with television on the same floor which we will use in the evenings to watch a movie or read. Guests are welcome to help themselves to a book from our bookshelf or use the TV (no cable, just Netflix). Upstairs there is a common living and dining area as well as a functional and spacious kitchen which guests are also welcome to use.
Entrance to the bedroom is semi-private. Since this is a split level house, guests will use the front door, but do not have to enter the upper living area if they so desire. If needed, guests are welcome to use the kitchen and dining area, as well as either the den (with TV) or the living room (no TV). Just keep in mind that we do not have cable television so you will be limited to movies or netflix. If you would like to use the kitchen, there is no additional charge. However, we do ask that you give us advanced notice when booking the room.
We do have WiFi access and guests will be provided with a code when they arrive. Laundry is on the lower level next to the guest bedroom. Guests are welcome to use but we ask that you provide your own detergent. The backyard and outside deck/patio are spacious and guests are welcome to use them. Please be respectful of the garden.
There is room to park 1 additional car in the driveway.
Please do not use the workout area and equipment upstairs. Adam works from home so please be aware that someone is here during the weekday and minimal noise (radio and phonecalls) is expected. You shouldn't be able to hear the noise from the downstairs bedroom.

Adam works from home so he will be minimally available during the weekday should you need help with anything. We are happy to chat with you if desired but generally have pretty quiet evenings during the week. We occasionally have friends over for dinner on the weekends and guests are welcome to join. Please give us advanced notice if you intend to eat with us.
We have 2 cats who will be cautious of you at first but may become friendly toward you overtime (especially if you use the kitchen). They do have front claws but are not aggressive. Please don't feed them human food or let them outside.
Please be respectful and courteous of the house and neighborhood. As mentioned above, you will need to provide your own detergent to use the laundry. Guests may not use the workout room.
I am a 26 year old traveler (both for work and pleasure) and have had wonderful experiences staying at Airbnbs all over the world. Now that I finally have my own home, I am thrilled I get the opportunity to host others. My partner, Adam, and I are both more than happy to welcome you to our home and fill you in on everything that made us fall in love with Iowa City. Neither of us is an Iowa City native, but we've been here for several years now and are completely enamored by this vibrant community.
I currently work for the University of Iowa in marketing and recruitment for a study abroad program in Italy. Adam works from home and is mostly available to help with check-ins during the day or answer questions. We both enjoy working in the garden, road trips, board games, and anything that involves laughing with friends (both new and old).
