One of the most unusual accommodations you're likely to find anywhere, this apartment in historic downtown Provo became one of the most talked about news items of the year on Provo Buzz.

Very unique! Please read carefully before booking.

The space
R+D Underground is a VERY unique space, built in the basement level of a 120+ year old historic building in the beating heart of historic downtown Provo. It sits inside a bustling commercial building and is surrounded by activity. Inside the same building complex are 4 restaurants, an ice cream shop, a juice bar, 2 barbershops, clothing retail and more. Built as an owner's apartment for when the owner's are in town, this apartment is funky, fun, and definitely the coolest spot to stay if you're into urban living. The windows of the apartment open into a stone hallway under the sidewalk which has lights on timers to simulate daylight. Not much natural light at all, but very cool. You'll love the artwork, furniture, and just the overall vibe of the place. It's a great place to relax, play your music loud, watch movies, play some vintage video games
There are 3 bedrooms. Two have queen beds, and the third is a room suitable for kids that has a full size bed and a bonus full size convertible sofa. 6 guests is our maximum.


A few words of warning, however:
This is INSIDE a commercial building and underneath a popular local restaurant. It's fairly noisy with the sounds of a restaurant and other upstairs functions between the hours of 9am to 10 or 11 pm. For some people that won't work and we totally understand. If you're looking for a quiet retreat, this is definitely not a good option. But if you don't mind the bustling sounds of local businesses around you, you'll love it. And the proximity to all the local restaurants, music venues and nightspots makes it all the more fun.

Bottom line: It's an awesome place for the right person, and guaranteed to be way more fun than anything else you'll come across!

Guest access
You'll have the run of about 2000 sq ft of cool underground apartment, including the biggest shower around! This is the only apartment unit in the building, so it's very private.

Other things to note
You'll have free parking inside our parking garage. Otherwise, please be wary where you park, as towing is common in the area.

I'm an entrepreneur currently living in Bali, Indonesia with my wife DesNeiges and our two rowdy boys, Finn & Arrow. We're originally from Napa Valley, California then moved to Provo, Utah for a few years before moving to Bali in 2013. We're not exactly sure where "home" is these days, but if it's where the heart is, I think Bali might be it. We've got quite a few irons in the fire with business in California, Utah & Bali. My background is in architecture, my wife's is in fashion and somewhere in the middle with ended up in the restaurant business! Go figure. :D
