Why does the number of people staying at your condo affect the rates? ~ The number of people, including children, affect the rate because there is added use of sheets, bedding, utilities, and additional wear and tear to the property. The housekeeper must spend more time cleaning, sanitizing, laundering, folding towels, and remaking beds after a larger group's departure.

Why are special event dates, such as football weekends, charged a premium rate? ~ Short-term and Game day rentals are vacant for much of the year. There would be no Short-term or Game Day rentals if the rates for popular events were modest.

Why is Check-in late in the afternoon? ~ There are times when guests have checked-out in the morning, and therefore the housekeeper comes in after to prepare the home for you. Sometimes an earlier Check-in can be agreed to, but only if the Owner agrees in writing after she has checked with the housekeeper's schedule.

We won't be arriving until late in the evening, is that ok? ~ Yes, there are provisions for those who must arrive late at night.

BAMA BOUND PARENTS!!! Don't sleep in DORM twin beds in SEPARATE rooms with no TVs when you can stay in this lovely condo with 3 TVs with full programming? STAY IN COMFORT!

The place was great. We had everything we needed and then some. We would love to stay here again on our next visit. The process gas quick and simple. Couldn’t be any happier with the experience.

Stay for Dec graduation

  • 3 of 5

The condo is convenient to University of Alabama which is a positive. My gripes with the place stem from the beds/bedrooms. The buck bed in the second bedroom is so rickety that it seems like it may just collapse at any moment. The pillows were terrible and there is butcher paper on the windows to try to keep the room darker (at least thats what I think) Needless to say sleep for everyone was not so good during our stay. Our boys ended up sleeping on mats in the living space because it was more comfortable. The kitchen and Living space were decorated cute and the place was clean.

Great time! Great Stay! Great Place!

Our student plays a sport for UA so we have to come to Tuscaloosa a lot. We prefer staying at one of Joan’s properties because they’re clean and well-appointed. I think she has at least 3 properties. She answers all of our questions promptly.
