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.
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.
as described! great location super close to the Greenway and some great restaurants. across the river from downtown Columbia. my boyfriend and i rode our bicycles all over town.
we will stay with Allison again.
Allison was a great host. She knows the area well and answered all my questions prior to arrival. The description of the room is 100% accurate. If we ever travel back to Columbia we would stay here again, Moneypenny is adorable.
Thank you Allison for sharing your lovely home
Great host with a great house in an awesome location! Would stay again definitely!
It was a pleasure to come to Allison's house. Unfortunately she was not at home but nevertheless makes me a good welcome in Columbia.
As described! Super comfortable & I slept like a rock. The shower had great water pressure too! Miss Moneypenny was very friendly. This place is very convenient to downtown & USC. Allison was very nice & welcoming. I enjoyed talking with her.
I am a professor at USC. I am trying to help graduate students and visiting research fellows find reasonably priced, personal accommodations.
