The room is about 12 ft. X 18 ft. - with 9 ft. ceilings and two large windows. There is a queen-sized 4-poster bed and a futon, so the room could host three people. There is a clean but tiny bathroom - just big enough for a 32-inch shower and a toilet. A "bar sink" and mirror are right outside the bathroom in a small adjoining dressing area. Glass doors lead out to a balcony area with a view overlooking part of downtown Birmingham. The room is on the 2nd floor - 14 steps upstairs.

The space
This room is located upstairs in a private house in a quiet and tree-shaded neighborhood containing many older homes from the early decades of the 20th century. The house is on a street sloping steeply down Red Mountain, and the room is upstairs - there are 12 steps going up to the house and 14 steps going up the stairs inside the house. The homeowners live in the house, and there are an additional two rooms upstairs and one room downstairs that may be rented at any given time. Originally, this large room was connected by a door to one of the other upstairs rooms, but we have this door locked. We strive for a quiet atmosphere in the home, since many of our guests get up early to work in the area. Upon request, we are glad to share our kitchen resources, as well as espresso and spring water.

Guest access
The kitchen is available. We appreciate it if you let us know in advance if you expect to need the kitchen for food preparation. There is a big round table in the front room which can be used as a work space, and the front porch is also available.

Other things to note
The homeowners and a number of guests are sharing space in an older home. The balcony is right above a deck which is often occupied, and the large room mentioned here adjoins a smaller room usually occupied by another guest. All rooms are private rooms, and our experience has been that guests are very quiet and respectful - but it is good to be aware that the home is usually occupied by a number of people.

Location

Birmingham, Alabama, United States

We are located on Red Mountain within walking distance of UAB, the Alys Stephens Center, and Five Points South. By car we are within easy driving distance of the BJCC, the rest of downtown and the centers of Homewood and Mountain Brook. Having a car would be most desirable if you are new to the area and not inclined to extensive walking. We are 2 miles from I-65.
