Our 3 bedroom + 2 bath 1950's bungalow sleeps 7 and is dog-friendly. Exactly 1.4 miles from downtown/UI main campus, 2.2 miles from Kinnick Stadium, 0.7 miles from Hy-Vee Grocery. 3 bus routes stop 1/2 block away. We have hardwood floors, a remodeled IKEA kitchen, a new folding treadmill, washer/dryer, near-blackout bedroom curtains, attached garage with propane grill, huge fenced backyard, driveway with 2 spots, central air conditioning, & kind, communicative, conscientious neighbors.
We like to call this space our "country house" in a university town! Our little street is quiet, and our neighbors are absolutely wonderful. After buying the house in April, 2013, we installed a beautiful new kitchen that is truly made for cooking (IKEA cabinets, gas stove, over-the-range microwave which vents properly to the outside, solid surface counters, a counter-depth refrigerator w/ water and ice, and an ultra-quiet Bosch dishwasher). We refinished the original red oak floors. We later finished most of the lower level (our 3rd bedroom and 2nd bathroom). This sturdy little brick bungalow was constructed by the original builder-owner and has been a delightful, ongoing project and precious retreat from our noisy Chicago neighborhood! The air conditioning and heat work perfectly, and this little house is a safe abode during Iowa's tornado season.

My husband (Michael) and I split our time between Iowa City and Chicago. Our grumpy 13-year-old pitbull ("Shrek") prefers his stays in Iowa City, where he can chase squirrels and bunnies in the backyard... We have been so pleased to open our home to guests from all over the world. Our overall experience as Airbnb hosts and travelers has been terrific.
