This house is in a great part of town, walking distance to Gian Marco's Italian Restaurant and JoJo's cafe along with access to Lakeshore Trail. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house that I have owned for six years. Along with the bedrooms, there is a living room, spacious kitchen, and dining room.
Guests should expect a nice neighborhood and a great house in a city I love and hold dear.
The neighborhood is very friendly and unique. There are nearby restaurants as well as sidewalks and walking trails.
There are bus stops but no nearby, regular transit.
The place is unique because it is in a very convenient and friendly part of Birmingham. I have worked hard to make it a great place to live and stay!
Very considerate and friendly hostess, cute and cozy home, sweet well-mannered dog, and convenient location. Gail offered to pick up supplies at the grocery, was prompt in repairing a mechanical malfunction, and had good advice on things to do in town. Separate twin beds were ideal for my friend and me. They may not be the perfect setup for traveling couples desiring closer proximity to each other. Overall good value –more comfortable and friendlier than a comparably priced hotel.
Gail and Parker were great hosts. Their house was so cute and homey. We were more than comfortable in the roomy house and were given tons of helpful suggestions for our first visit to Birmingham. Her dog Parker was a sweetheart and we had fun petting him. We'd all recommend staying with Gail. Added bonus-she also had really good smelling hand soap.
This is our first air B&B experience and it was extraordinary! We really enjoyed the ability to walk around the neighborhood even though the weather was a little chilly for Birmingham. Gail was very flexible with our schedule and accommodated us nicely. Felt like relaxing at a home away from home.
Gail was a great host and her home is lovely. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Her house is located in a lovely neighborhood within short walking distance (less than 1-10th mile) of two excellent local restaurants, which is really great at the end of a day of site-seeing/work/etc. A small shopping area with a few additional local stores, a really nice local coffee shop, etc. is a delightfully pleasant 15-20 minute walk away through a very pretty residential neighborhood.
Gail is a delightful host and she has the sweetest dog. The house is south of Birmingham in an older residential neighborhood. The yards are full of huge shade trees.
You can walk to a couple of restaurants, one good and one excellent. It feels safe to walk around, even after dark.
The house is very comfortable.
A couple of suggestions for Birmingham. Be sure and see the Civil Rights Museum. It is excellent. There is a great little restaurant about two blocks from the museum.called the Homecoming Cafe. They serve regional food and the prices seem fair.
We were able to join a "wine and cheese hike" in Ruffner (spelling?) Park. It is a great view of the city and nice company.
Gail's home was charming and welcoming, and the decor details were delightful. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. She was not at home and made sure to check in on us to see if we needed anything. I was not expecting a crock pot of okra stew upon my arrival, but Gail insisted on sharing it with us. I would stay here again.
We had such a lovely stay at Gail's! Her house in located in a safe and nice area and the room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Gail was so easy to talk to and she made sure we were at our ease in her house! Nice accommodation, great host and super cute dog!
My boyfriend and I couldn't have asked for a better air bnb experience as we were concluding a long trip, and needed a restful sleep before an early flight home.
Staying at Gail's place was like staying at an old friend's. Communication was easy, and check-in was smooth. While she had other places to be, we could relax, enjoy some beer, and do our laundry. Gail was kind to prepare us bowls of warm soup for our arrival, and when she was home we had a wonderful time hanging out with her and her friendly dog, Parker.
The perfect balance of private and social, and just a 15 minute drive to the airport. I highly recommend this bnb!
We had a wonderful stay with Gail. Her house was charming, and the room was big, clean, and bright-just as pictured. Though our schedules barely overlapped with our host's, she made everything, including checking in, really easy. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Birmingham.
Gail's home is in a great location. The interior is large and has a laid back, artsy vibe. Gail was respectful of privacy and went out of her way to make sure I was okay with her book club meeting there. All communication was prompt.
