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 or help you find the best shrimp & grits in town.

The space

The guest bedroom has a full/double bed, closet with hangers, luggage rack, and large dresser. We've recently added a ceiling fan for added comfort. You'll also have your own TV with Chromecast and mini-fridge.

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.

Guest access

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). The same is true for tobacco use. If you desire to smoke, we kindly request that you do so away from the house, to avoid smoke coming back inside from the porch.

For same-day bookings OR for those requesting use of the extra mattress:
Please don't use the instant book feature. Instead, send us an inquiry, so that we have the opportunity to verify that we're able to accommodate your request.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - 4 stairs from the sidewalk to the front porch, handrails on both sides
Potential for noise - We're close to downtown, so occasionally hear barking dogs, sirens, and the like. We provide a sound machine and ear plugs for light sleepers.

Brooke and Jason were gracious hosts, and provided a very clean and well-appointed place for our brief visit. Lovely to have a private bathroom, comfortable bed, and soothing "white noise" unit for a peaceful sleep in a restful neighborhood.

Brooke and Jason's home was immaculate! The bed and bedding in the guest room were super comfortable. Brooke offered coffee both mornings of our stay -- in fact, she set is up the night before we were leaving because the next morning our flight was at 6:00 am and we left at 4:15. It was so nice to leave with a cup of coffee in hand. Brooke was easy to communicate with and had a variety of local options (food, coffee, entertainment etc.) ready in the room and was generous with her knowledge as well. It was a great stay!!

This was my second stay with Brooke and Jason, which says it all! They are great hosts. Their home is in close proximity to USC and all kinds of great restaurants. They give excellent recommendations too! Looking forward to another opportunity to stay.

Just the homey getaway I was looking for on a work trip! Brooke and Jason were beyond amazing hosts and had everything that I needed + more. Forgot my toothpaste? No problem. Too lazy to get up and find breakfast? They had muffins and fresh fruit! Need a dog because you haven't seen your own in a long time? Aiden the Yorkie is there to the rescue. Perfect stay.
