This Apartment on the front side of my duplex has three bedrooms. I rent rooms to people by the month, but am willing to entertain shorter term stays. The house is improved, but not re-modeled. It is an old home that has been recently brought up to respectable, but rustic living standards. I believe that the cost + the maturing fruit trees and gardens on site make it a nice place to live in Little Rock. Occupants should look forward to sharing common space with the longer term tenants!

The space

In our historic, clean, but not freshly re-modeled home, you will have your own room with lots of windows, a good heater and/or window unit, and a full (shared)bathroom down the stairs. Though recently acquired, this 1/2 acre of urban land is being steered towards a food forest, complete with fruit trees and quite a bit of vegetable gardening.

Your bed is aFull-Sized Mattress and Box Spring that is firm yet comfortable.

There is a kitchen with some utensils that you will have access to.

Nothing fancy here, but basic, affordable, friendly accommodations just two blocks from the infamous Central High School! We are less than 2 miles from the center of downtown, and less than 1 mile from the highway, so you will not be far away from much.

We are happy to host you for a short time and are open to longer term arrangements. Right now we are specifically interested in month long or longer stays.

Guest access

Kevin is a commercial hot air balloon pilot and weather permitting, we may be able to arrange a sunrise hot air balloon ride in or around Little Rock during your stay.

We are open to sharing some refrigerator space and kitchen space with guests as the need arises.

We also have an upright piano and a couple guitars that you are welcome to play!

Interaction with guests

We enjoy meeting people but are also happy to leave them to their own. We are happy to give recommendations for places to eat or things to do around town and often enjoy having coffee in the morning with our guests!

Other things to note

Hot Air Balloon Rides are not free, but a great deal so don't hesitate to let us plan you one!

An affordable place close to downtown. Met Kevin once when he came to renovate the shower, but he communicated well throughout the process. The girl who was living there long-term was friendly and helped me with my stay. Thanks for letting me stay there!

Kevin graciously agreed to let us stay for 2 nights at his property with only one day notice. The upstairs room we stayed in was simple and clean. Kevin and his other guests were friendly.

We never met Kevin, but he clearly communicated everything we needed to know. The room was comfortable for our 1-night stopover, and the window AC unit kept it cool and drowned out most of the noise from the other tenants. Great location and easy to find.

Stayed at Kevin's place for one night. It was perfect. The 'Granny Smith' coloured room is simple but spacious. And most important for us, close to the White Water Tavern where we went for a concert.

Me and my friend didn't met Kevin since we arrived late and head out early in the morning but the place was as described. The house was clean and in a nice neighbourhood.

Everything was as described. We arrived very late from a long drive and it was no problem. Kevin's place was no-frills but serviceable. I'd stay there again if passing through Little Rock.

My boyfriend and I had a pretty comfortable stay here. Good location. Room wasn't exactly as the pictures depicted, but he was good at communicating with us about it and was available for any questions we had during our stay.

Kevin User Profile

I grew up in Baton Rouge, LA and have traveled all over the country flying my balloon and working in various aspects of landscaping and agriculture before (recently) embarking on this home-fix-up endeavor. I am enjoying growing a good portion of my own food, living with Tiffany, and improving my two old houses and their grounds.

I enjoy eating well and learning about what other people are up to!

I have a very nice dog who lives outside.
