2-3 miles north of downtown and USC, our home is perfectly situated within 10 minutes of all major interstates/highways -- the convenience of downtown with the charm of an old neighborhood. Our home is ideal for academic, leisure, or professional travelers. With 20+ years living here, we're happy to share tips to ease your parking woes and help you find the best shrimp & grits in town.
The guest bedroom has a full/double bed, new ceiling fan, small closet with hangers, luggage rack, and empty dresser drawers available. We've recently added a ceiling fan for added comfort. You'll also have your own TV with Chromecast, mini-fridge, and a sound machine to block out unwanted distraction.
The private bathroom is across the hall, including fresh linens and basic toiletries. Hair dryer & clothes iron are available on request, and we can often provide other miscellaneous toiletries that you may have forgotten to pack.
We have a new 5" twin-sized memory foam mattress for guests who would prefer separate sleeping space for one guest. It can be set up for you on the office floor. It's not fancy, but is very comfortable. If you'd like this option, please book for 3 guests - even if there are only 2 - so that the price will adjust accordingly.
NOTE: We do not offer the twin mattress as a stand-alone option. It is only available to our guests who book the guest room and need a bit more space.
Please let us know if you'd like to make use of the kitchen to prepare meals, or the office to get some work done while you are in town. For guests whose stay exceeds a week, you may use our laundry room upon request.
Interaction with guests
We're happy to provide directions and recommendations, but typically will defer to your busy schedule and offer info & conversation upon request.
Other things to note
Aden is our curmudgeonly-yet-sweet old yorkie (see picture). He's very loving and will happily sit in your lap, if invited. Be mindful that he has a nervous bladder, so it's best to ignore him until he's calm and we give you the go-ahead.
We ask that all guests refrain from using heavy scents such as perfume or cologne in the house, due to our allergies (and the headaches they cause).
Please don't use the instant book feature for reservations that include use of our spare twin mattress. Send us a booking inquiry with the dates of travel and any other pertinent information. This allows us to discuss your needs in advance, since use of the spare mattress will restrict our access to the home office, and ensure we're able to accommodate your needs before confirming the reservation.

She's a PhD student & university employee, he's an attorney with a neighboring county. She loves adventure, good grammar, and is an unapologetic extrovert. He's most comfortable in his well-appointed shell and can probably dominate you in Harry Potter or sports trivia. Totally nailing this marriage game since Nov 2015.
As for airbnb, we're out to prove that southern hospitality is alive & well.
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have. We're happy to share our home and the city we've grown to love!
