My home is bright, quiet, and surrounded by nature, yet just 1 mile east of downtown Iowa City. Convenient location for all downtown and University of Iowa services/facilities, hospitals, and Kinnick Stadium. Perfect for visiting scholars and traveling medical professionals in town for a bit. Week day price temporarily dropped for low-demand winter months. Will negotiate rates for stays beyond 2 weeks! Compliant & registered with Iowa City for rental/airbnb.
