About the property

Welcome to our Gameday Getaway! This 2 bedroom/2.5 bath town home is situated in a delightful, family-oriented neighborhood approximately 3/4 of a mile from downtown Auburn and 1.5 miles away from Jordan-Hare Stadium. If you are in town for a football game, or just for a quick weekend trip to the Loveliest Village on the Plains, this is the perfect place for you! With plenty of parking and outdoor entertaining space, this is an ideal location for families wanting to get away from the immediate hustle and bustle of the gameday atmosphere while still being within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants and entertainment and Auburn has to offer.

There are 2 bedrooms with a queen and a full size bed plus a raised air mattress that can be set up in the living room to sleep a total of 6 guests. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware as well as disposable cups and plates if you don't feel like doing dishes. We have a brand new Keurig machine with an assortment of K-cups, as well as individual cream and sugar packets. We have also provided bottled water and light snacks for you to enjoy as well.

This home includes complimentary WiFi so feel free to bring laptops, tablets or other streaming devices. The living room and both bedrooms are equipped with DISH and Blu-Ray players. We have also provided a few board games and cards for you to use at your leisure. There is a detailed manual located on the coffee table that has specific information about the property as well as nearby restaurant/shopping info, maps, etc.

There is a washer/dryer available for your use with laundry detergent provided. We have also provided shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in both bathrooms as well as 2 hairdryers. Plenty of towels and linens are also included.

In addition to the warm and inviting atmosphere inside the house, we have also created a tranquil outdoor living space that really makes it feel like home! There is a natural gas grill (with grilling tools provided) and a dining area on the main patio with an extension that includes a separate entertaining/conversation area. There is a propane fire pit and portable heater also included to help keep you comfortable no matter what time of year you visit! This is a great space to grill some burgers before heading out to the big game or to just relax and unwind at any time of the day. There are lights mounted on the fence that add some extra ambiance at night and make it the perfect place to return after a fun-filled day in Auburn!

About Amanda McKinney

War Eagle! My daughter, Amanda, and I (Jane) currently reside in Birmingham, but Auburn will always hold a special place in our hearts! We come from a big Auburn family, and I graduated in 1976 with a degree in pharmacy. When Amanda decided she would also pursue a pharmacy degree, we knew that Auburn was the only place for her to be. We bought this home as she was starting her freshman year and we have loved it ever since! She has made so many wonderful memories and shared so many unique experiences here that we just couldn't let it go. We are delighted to now be able to open our home to you and sincerely hope that you will make just as many amazing Auburn memories as we have!

Amanda McKinney purchased this townhome in 2009

What makes this townhome unique

This townhome truly is a home away from home that offers the best of both worlds. It is centrally located to dozens of shops and restaurants, yet is secluded in a private neighborhood with plenty of space for you and your family. On a perfect fall Saturday morning you can enjoy a cup of coffee on the back patio and listen to everyone around gearing up for another exciting gameday. You can even hear the stadium speakers if you choose to stay in for the game! The outdoor space truly is the shining feature of this home with a spacious backyard and 2 separate entertaining areas, this is where you will want to spend all of your time! We have also added lights around the fence so you can enjoy the space day or night!

Our family has rented VRBO's about twice a year for the last 15 or so years, all over the country. THIS WAS BY FAR THE BEST EVER! the house was nice and clean, plenty of linens, towels etc. WE LOVED that it was stocked with coffee, snacks, water and even toiletries!! LOVED THE DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ALL OVER THE HOUSE! no more trying to figure out the TV or the grill. LOVED THE OUTDOOR SPACE! it was great to grill burgers for my college kid and her roommates and being able to make s'mores for desert! WE WILL BE BACK!

Fantastic Rental!

Probably one of the best VRBO rentals we have ever stayed in! The condo was super clean, very comfortable, well equipped, plenty of linens and towels, plus it came fully stocked with water, coffee, snacks and toiletries! It is a nice easy walk to downtown and the stadium. Amanda was great to work with also! We couldn't have asked for a better rental and weekend, thanks so much Amanda, we hope to be back!!

Great Weekend at Gameday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Gameday Getaway was the perfect place to stay for Auburn Homecoming and Parents Weekend. The house comes equipped with all you need to make your weekend comfortable. It is close enough to walk into downtown for dinner and to Jordan Hare for the game. And post game we enjoyed the backyard fire pit and sparkly lights.! We hope to be back again soon!
