Biggest room in a house with a giant yard. The neighborhood is wonderful, you'll be across the street from one of the best parks in the city (with a huge dog park) and 10 minutes away from the university, 20 from downtown Mobile.
Please contact us as soon as possible in order to inquire about whether or not you'll have the house to yourself. Especially if traveling with dogs. As much as possible, we would like you to have that privacy as we plan on traveling quite a bit this summer.
You would have the entire Master "Suite" which includes a private bathroom with tub and shower. The bed is a King pillow top and quite simply wonderful. You will sleep well. The room is large enough to accommodate one or two VERY friendly dog (see below for more info about our dog policy). This bedroom is at the end of a hallway which connects the kitchen and living room area with 3 other bedrooms and a bath. While you don't have a separate entrance (unless the house is yours) you will have peace and quiet.
You'll have the entire house if the timing is right! If need be, we could open one of the smaller bedrooms for whatever needs you might have. Otherwise, you have a giant living area space with full kitchen in addition to the bedroom, two bathrooms, and the yard and porch area. Additionally, if requested, we can open a room for you if you should require an office or a second bathroom.
This is up to you and our traveling schedule. Note that if either one of us is home, and you prefer that, we would love to make ourselves as available (or scarce) as you like. Moreover, IF we are home for a significant portion of your stay, we will waive the additional "guest" fee which also refers to pets so please let us know how many pets you intend to bring so we can work out schedules. We are very particular about who we invite in our home. While our price is low, we are admittedly picky. Should you be s good for, YOU decide how much or little interaction you require.
As said above, additional guests refers to dogs as well as human people and both require our prior approval. The following only applies to in case we are there for some of your stay. As long as your dog is house trained, we are happy!
Our two dogs are lovely (pictures are attached) and incredibly friendly (too friendly...with other people). For those who are not "dog people," no worries, they will not be allowed in the back of the house if you do not want them close by. If you would like to bring a dog you may but please realize that our two dogs are of the submissive variety so we're afraid we'll have to be very choosy about whatever interactions our dogs might have. Older dogs are much preferred and definitely dogs that are VERY passive and agreeable.
- Smoking allowed only outside on our patio. Cats not welcome! Only dogs!
-the usual rules.. We like our neighbors a lot so please be relatively quiet and respectful. However, don't feel like you can't enjoy the "southerners"... Wander around and represent us well please safe area!
- We would prefer it if you had the whole place to yourself but that is dependent on availability. So, please contact us to find out. In the very unlikely event that we will be there, please note that we have two small adorable dogs who are incredibly submissive and friendly. In other words, if you plan on bringing your dog with you, we will need to discuss your dog's behavior and needs beforehand.
I teach at the University of South Alabama. My husband and I enjoy traveling, particularly in the summers and particularly this upcoming year as I'll be on sabbatical. We have two dogs we cannot live without (and who are objectively cute) and have had nothing but good experiences being airbnb guests. We hope to host soon!
