About this listing
My 1960s split level house is minutes from downtown, just over the Blossom Street bridge in Cayce. The quiet, wooded neighborhood has easy access to the Riverwalk. Relaxed, welcoming atmosphere to make you feel at home. Private room and bath.
Private bedroom with a queen size bed. Dresser & closet. Ceiling fan. Private bath with shower.
Room & bathroom are kept closed off from my dog. However, the rest of the house is subjected to a constant barrage of mud, slobber, and dog hair. My rumba runs daily, but my dog sometimes gets ahead of me.
Interaction with Guests
I have a busy life, so after check-in there may be minimal interaction. However, I will do anything I can to make sure your visit is comfortable. All guests can call me anytime on my cell. I am a professor at USC and happily try to accommodate the needs of graduate students and visiting fellows.
This small, 25-house neighborhood was subdivided from the Guinard Estate in the 1960s, so all the houses are split-levels or ranchers. It is a five minute walk to the beautiful Riverwalk along the Congaree. Monterrey's Mexican Restaurant is a few minutes walk from the house; numerous restaurants deliver.
It is a few minutes walk to a not very convenient bus stop. Most people in Columbia drive. Parking is available on site. I often walk the 2 miles to my office at the University of South Carolina.
Other Things to Note
I have a very friendly, but very large dog -- an English Mastiff named Miss Moneypenny. If you are allergic or afraid of dogs, this is not the place for you.
On April 14, Miss Moneypenny had knee surgery. During her long recovery, she will be confined to the downstairs.
Please no smoking. No excessive noise after 10:00 pm or before 7:00 am. No children.
I didn't get to meet Allison but she was very quick to respond to my request and messaged me immediately welcoming me into her home.
It's a wonderful experience during my stay in Columbia SC attending my son's high school graduation ceremony! Allison's house is very close to the downtown and easy to access to the main roads. As I and my wife first arrived Allison welcomed us at the door and introduced every thing about living room, bathroom, kitchen and so on. We feel comfortable with her because Allison gave us a lot of privacy. What I most want to recommend is her Money Penny a lovely mastiff she's very friendly! Any one will love her if you have raised a pet!
We drove a car to Allison's house because it's very convenient to park our car.
I would say thank you so much,Allison! I will stay here again if I visit Columbia in the future.
Allison was very accommodating with our late check in time. Her home was in a nice neighborhood and easy to locate. The room was clean and the bathroom was just across the hall. Overall we enjoyed our stay. It's a great value and we would stay here again if we're ever in town. Thank you Allison.
Allison is very nice and the room was cozy. Great place to come home to after a busy day!
Listing was accurate and exactly as described. Excellent directions and access.
Allison was very welcoming and made sure we were taken care of before letting us come and go as we pleased. Which was really nice since we were in town for a festival and we aren't the kind of people who stick to a schedule. The room was comfortable and Allison made sure we had clean linens in the bathroom for our convenience. I recommend.
Allison was an extremely kind and considerate host! The room was clean and comfortable as could be. Safe neighborhood and a great location. Would definitely recommend.
