Welcome to your home away from home! The perfect space for medical students doing a month rotation at UIHC or small groups looking for a comfy, safe, quiet place to stay while in town for a Hawkeye game.

Your room is in our fully finished walk-out basement with lots of natural light. The bedroom has two queen beds and two closets. The space includes exclusive use of the basement bathroom and kitchenette.

There is a laundry room, gym, and family room in the basement for your use as well!

The space

The perfect place to crash after a long day of work, study, or play, the bedroom has two comfy queen beds. There are plenty of extra pillows and blankets to accommodate any type of sleep preferences. There is also a fan to provide you with white noise if you need it!

For the unpackers and longer term guests, there is a closet with clothes hangers available for your use. As a little bonus, the full length mirrored closet door makes it easy to check your ‘fit before hitting the town or office.


The kitchenette comes equipped with basic dishes and cutlery, a full-sized kitchen sink, a full-sized fridge and freezer, a microwave, crockpot, Ninja blender, and coffee maker. There is plenty of cabinet space available for your use.

Picky about your drinking water? Us too! We have a water softener and reverse osmosis system that make for delicious tap water.


Just down the hall from your bedroom, you will find your bathroom, clean and fully stocked with big fluffy towels. Forget your razor? Toothbrush? No worries—we got you!

Please note that the shower in your bathroom is quite small and there is no tub.


Filled with plants, books, board games, and cozy vibes, you’re sure to love this space as much as we do. Take a load off and stream your favorite show on the 42” Roku TV on Hulu or Netflix.

Please note that there is no cable TV or sports packages.


Don’t want to miss out on any gains while on vacation? Feel free to make use of our home gym during your stay. You’re sure to get a good workout in with the squat rack, bench, and spinning bike.

Please note that use of any gym equipment is at your own risk.


There is nothing terribly glamorous about the laundry room since it is also the utility room, but you are more than welcome to use it during your stay. We also have a small sewing kit and an iron and small ironing board in case something got jostled during your travels.


Take a step outside and enjoy the weather on the shade-soaked patio. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a nightcap.


We have a large rescue dog named Donovan. If you have allergies or don’t like/fear dogs, we’re not the best space for you. You will occasionally hear him barking. He never barks through the night, but he likes to sing the song of his people if he hears a neighborhood dog, if someone knocks, or sometimes just if he thinks he’s not getting enough attention. We had friends in over during the July 4th weekend, and they said they did not hear him while they were in the bedroom (he was trying to convince the fireworks to stop). We also have a fan in the bedroom to provide you with white noise if you need it.

There is a baby gate at the top of the stairs to keep him upstairs with us. However, the only access to our yard is through the walkout basement. For shorter stays (5 days or less), we will take him out on leash from the front door, so he will never be in your space.

For stays over 5 days, he may be walking through the space multiple times a day to go to the backyard. He loves all people and will always be accompanied by one of us. The earliest he goes out in the mornings on weekdays is 6:30 am and the latest at night is 10:00 pm. On weekends, the earliest is 7:30 am and the latest at night is 11:00 pm.

Where you’ll be

Iowa City, Iowa, United States

We love our quiet, safe little neighborhood full of Iowa-nice neighbors and hope you will too!

Quick and easy access to Highway 6 ensures you can get to anywhere in Iowa City in a flash. We’re a quick 10 minute drive to UIHC and less than 5 minutes to Kirkwood Community College.

Looking to get outside? Take a short walk over to Wetherby Park and play some disk golf or pop on down to the Sycamore Greenway to enjoy a scenic walk, bike ride, or run. Pleasant Valley Golf Course is just a 6 minute drive south if you have a hankering to get out on the green, and Terry Trueblood Recreation Area is the perfect spot to rent a SUP or kayak to get out on the water.

Hey all! Myself, my boyfriend Kee, and our dog Donovan recently moved to Iowa. We love to travel, especially to dog-friendly cities! I love to be outdoors and try to sneak at least one hike in to every trip. Food (and drink) is also a huge part of travel for us. Local fare is always top on our list or priorities while traveling! We are excited to open our home to those wanting a cozy place to stay in Iowa City. While we haven’t been here too long, we already have a long list of local parks and favorite restaurants to share with you.
