Urban Oasis with Southern Charm

House - Private room · Sumner Street, Greenville, SC 29601, United States

The Space

Stay in a charming bungalow in downtown Greenville, SC. We are in the West End within walking distance to downtown. The house is less than a mile from the Greenville Drive Stadium and restaurants on South Main. You can catch the free open air trolley to anywhere downtown from the baseball stadium. We have bikes we welcome you to use. If you promise to be careful we'll even let you take our moped for a spin.

Our historic home was built in 1905 and has a fantastic covered front porch where you can relax and enjoy your coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.

We have a beautiful garden oasis in our backyard. Warm up by the fire pit on a cool night. There is plenty of lounge space to relax and read a book or have a conversation. You are welcome to use our grill or kitchen if you'd like- we only ask that you clean up after yourself.

Your room has beautiful artwork, a comfortable queen size bed, high ceilings, closet and drawer space, a vanity/desk and a ceiling fan. You also have a private bathroom. We have an extensive library if you'd like to borrow a book or magazine. You also have access to Wi-Fi both inside and outside in the yard.

We're happy to make recommendations for local restaurants (we're foodies). We also like to hike and can recommend several places close by.

Two friendly dogs live here- Banana and Clover.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jessica and Bryan were excellent hosts! They opened their home to my son and I for two nights thus week and made being in Greenville feel like we were at home. They've aptly named their Airbnb "Urban Oasis" and it lives up to the name! It's a beautiful home just a couple blocks from the heart of downtown Greenville. Our room was both extremely comfortable and immaculate, as was our private bath. Finn is an added bonus- what a lovely little guy they have; just about cleaned their beautiful garden out bringing me flowers! We entered strangers and left feeling like we'd made great friends- I truly believe that this is exactly what Airbnb has over any hotel stay- it's a connection- a warm welcome- a feeling of comfort like that you find in your own home. Jessica made recommendations for places to experience while in Greenville, which turned out to be exactly what we were looking for- LunaRosaGelato being one- delizioso!

    Both Jessica and Bryan were friendly and yet are more than willing to allow whatever level of conversation their guests are comfortable with. I found them both to be extremely interesting.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thank you so much, Jessica and Bryan and Finn (and Hannah!) Were looking forward to staying with you again one day. Thanks for making our second Airbnb stay so wonderful! ! Be well!

  • Stayed with Jessica and Bryan while in town for a wedding. Beautiful house in convenient downtown location. Very friendly and relaxed. Accommodated a late night arrival from the west coast. Thank you for hosting us in the South!

  • We loved staying with Jessica and Bryan. Their home truly is an urban oasis. They are stellar hosts and their home is within easy walking distance of the delightful West End part of town and the river walks. The room we stayed in was comfortable, beautifully decorated, private, and quiet. I loved sitting in their back yard with tea in the morning and my husband did the same with coffee. Jessica and Bryan offered us breakfast but we'd had so much at dinner at the great local restaurants, we didn't want it. Even their older sweet dogs were excellent hosts. We can't recommend them highly enough and when we get back to Greenville we will surely stay with them!

  • Jessica and Bryan were great hosts. Jessica communicated well, her and Bryan were very welcoming, and definitely let us know that they were there if we needed anything. They have a very cute and clean house, with a large bedroom and bathroom (pictures are very accurate), and it's close to downtown. I would recommend their room to a friend or couple looking for a nice, affordable, place to stay in Greenville.

  • Jessica and Bryan's home was amazing. My husband and I couldn't stop talking about it the entire time we stayed there. As home renovators ourselves, we really appreciated the architecture and the style of their home. Definitely took a lot of mental notes. The space was super welcoming and they were both always very friendly. Wish we could have interacted more.

  • My friend and I really enjoyed our stay with Jessica and Bryan. We each rented a room. The rooms are well appointed and spacious, clean and very comfortable. They were very helpful in our endeavor to get to know and enjoy Greenville. We would recommend their home for individuals, families, or business stays.

  • If every AirBnB was this good, hotels would be out of business. We had a lovely stay. Perfect combination of privacy/comfort and engaging and knowledgable hosts. We enjoyed every minute. The room is fantastic.

  • What a wonderful home and family. It's all that so many positive reviews had indicated. The room was very much like being in a B&B. If I'm ever in Greenville again I'd definitely hope to stay again.

    March 2014
  • We had such an amazing experience on our first AirbBNB stay with Bryan and Jessica. They were great hosts and the room was super cute. They recommended a couple of restaurants and things to do, none of which disappointment. We had an amazing weekend and would stay there again.

  • Jessica and Bryan were lovely hosts, very accommodating, very flexible and very helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean. Fabulous. The house has a great location. It was a great first experience to stay in someone's home while they were there and it couldn't have been any better. Oh, and Jessica has very nice parents! Thanks for a great visit.

Bryan and I have lived in Greenville for 6 years. We are both from Ohio originally. We love music (all kinds), hiking, canoeing, camping, gardening, traveling and cooking. Bryan teaches drama, creative writing, film crit, and yearbook at a local high school. I work from home and take care of our 21 month old son, Finnegan. I've lived overseas in Australia and the Czech Republic (Prague). and we both lived in Costa Rica teaching English together before we got married. We got married in Jackson Square in New Orleans- complete with a second line parade. (Bryan helped rebuild there after Katrina). We've both traveled extensively and love meeting new people and discovering new places. We hope for the chance to host you in our lovely home that Bryan and I have spent many hours renovating.
