About this listing
Large master bedroom with ensuite in a 3 bedroom residential home located in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Taylors, SC. Only 15 minutes to the amazing downtown Greenville!
The bedroom comes with a king size bed, 2 closets, and attached private bathroom with sink, shower, and toilet. Towels and linens are provided. There are also 2 twin mattresses that may be available, so the room can potentially accommodate up to 4 people. Please check my other listings for additional availability if you have a larger group.
You're welcome to make yourself at home and have use of the kitchen, living spaces, and washer and dryer, just please tidy up after yourself. There aren't any TVs, but there are many books that you are welcome to borrow from off the shelves and peruse at your leisure.
There is wireless internet throughout the house. If you need to print something, let me know and I can print it for you from the desktop in the den.
Interaction with Guests
I am fun loving, easy going, and friendly. I enjoy having conversations and hanging out with my guests, but I understand the need for space and privacy. My default is to follow my guest(s) lead in how much or little interaction they want.
I love going on adventures and doing outdoorsy types of activities, and I'm always up for a hike at the state park. I sometimes have a slackline setup in the yard if you'd like to give it a go :P I also enjoy going downtown to hang out, chill at coffee shops and try new restaurants. I'm always interested in trying something new and am happy to provide recommendations for places to visit or restaurants to try. I may be able to show you around, but I'm in the middle of studying for board exams so that would depend on my study schedule.
The house is located a quiet suburban neighborhood in Taylors, SC. The neighborhood is nice and safe, full of mature trees and lovely for taking in a stroll. The neighbors are friendly, and will often wave or say hello.
The house is within 15-30 minutes of pretty much everything:
Greenville Spartanburg Airport: 20-25 minutes
Downtown Greenville (including Falls Park On the Reedy, Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Peace Center): 15-20 minutes
Paris Mountain State Park: 10-15 minutes
Bob Jones University: 10-15 minutes
Furman University: 15-20 minutes
Further afield, but close enough for a day trip:
Table Rock State Park: 45 min
Caesars Head State Park 45 min
Asheville, NC: 1hr 10 min
Charlotte, NC: 1hr 45 min
Atlanta, GA: 2hrs 30 min

If you don't have a car and may be needing transportation to or from any destination, let me know ahead of time and I can see if I can arrange my schedule to accommodate :D There is a bus stop for the Greenlink, Greenville's public transportation system, a 15 minute walk from the house. It is on Route 11 and it is a 20 minute ride to downtown Greenville. Downtown Greenville has a bike share program (B-cycle) that has 6 stations with 28 bicycles available to rent. The daily rate is $5 (or $15/week) and the first 60 minutes are free. This is a great way to explore downtown and the Swamp Rabbit Trail, a 17.5 mile multi-use trail system.
Other Things to Note
I have 2 dogs, so you must love or at least be tolerant of dogs. Their names are Vasco and Nova. Vasco is a Sheltie who's friendly without being over the top, while Nova loves meeting new people and playing with his toys. You are welcome to bring your pet with you as long as they are up to date with their vaccinations, house-trained, and people and dog friendly.

Grace's home is set in a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees. Her home is comfortable and welcoming and always neat and tidy. It is close to downtown Greenville and most any other surrounding town you would want to visit. You will not find a nicer or more convenient place to stay.
The listing completely fulfilled our expectations and Grace was very sweet and accommodating upon our arrival. She was readily available and quick to respond by text when needed. The house was tucked away in a wooded residential area but only a 15-minute drive from downtown, and a Publix grocery store around the corner. Grace was quite knowledgeable about the area, including outdoors activities, and even offered us her State Park permit for the day! Her dogs were very sweet and made our stay really feel like a home away from home. The room was incredibly clean and spacious, the bed couldn't have been more comfortable, with especially soft linens and pillows! I'd happily stay here again!
Grace was very responsive from the moment of reservation and assisted us to find and meet all our goal visitaions during our trip. The room was clean, inviting and accurately portrayed. Our host greeted, settled and made us welcome throughout our stay without being intrusive. Grace thought if every little thing we might need and made it available to us. This was a very pleasant first experience with airbnb.
The house is in a quiet neighborhood and directions given were very accurate. The host, Grace was away from town during my visit but I was welcomed in and shown around by her boyfriend. The room is very large and comfortable. The bed looked like a King sized bed and the bathroom attached to the room had a large clean shower.
I was gone pretty early the next morning so I did not indulge in any of the breakfast fare I was offered (coffee, tea etc)
I would recommend this place to any weary travelers in the area.
Grace was so accomodating and a gracious host. :) The room and bathroom were very clean and well kept, as described. Thank you Grace for enabling a great Thanksgiving weekend!
Grace was very friendly and provided some great recommendations on restaurants and an amazing local coffee shop (Due South). The bedroom was spacious and comfortable and has an attached private bathroom which is a big plus. My girlfriend and I were able to come and go as we pleased and felt welcome. Would stay again.
This was an extension of our first stay. Grace was great I letting us extend. The place is clean, exactly like photo and very central to everything.

About the Host, Grace
I'm a home grown American, raised on the East coast and recently transplanted to the West, but back on the East for the time being. I've spent the past few years traveling and living around the world for school, and thus discovered my love of travel. Most recently, I just returned stateside after living in the UK for 2 years.
I am a bit spontaneous, thrill-seeking, ridiculous, energetic, curious, fun-loving, optimistic, quirky, and a bit of an adrenaline junkie. But this doesn't mean I'm go-go-go! all the time either :) I'm easy going and chill. I enjoy hanging out and talking with my flatmate(s) but I am respectful of personal space and privacy. I'm friendly, open, honest, responsible, considerate, and have gotten on great with all of my housemates in the past. I'm not a freak about cleanliness, but I like to keep things fairly clean and organized, especially when it comes to shared spaces. I love animals and have 3 dogs out West and 2 with me now. I have lived with vet students where we've had a range of numerous animals roaming the house at one time from dogs and cats to lizards, goats, and even a cow once! I love to travel, explore, and experience new things. I also enjoy cooking, photography, art, most sports, outdoorsy stuff, hiking, etc.
