This house was perfect for our family of 5 (our daughters are young adults) providing plenty of space and comfort. Tastefully decorated, a well-stocked kitchen, and spacious bathrooms all made this home a great choice. We have stayed in multiple VRBO properties over the years and really felt that this owner provided lots of special touches with staples for kitchen, plenty of towels, soap, toilet paper, etc. We were there at Christmas (our family lives in Birmingham) and especially appreciated some Christmas decor here and there throughout the house. Cheryl was so easy to deal with and accomodating in every way. The home is in a small neighborhood close to shopping and the interstate, so easy access to head into Birmingham or Tuscaloosa. It is also close to state parks and we took a family hike on Christmas day! We will try to stay again when we make future trips as a family to Bham.

Owner response: Thanks so much for your review! We take pride in our property and are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. So glad that you took advantage of the nearby hiking, Tannehill and Moss Rock are hidden gems!
We recently came to Birmingham to celebrate our daughter's engagement. This house was the perfect place to gather. It was inviting, warm, and well equipped. The welcome cake that was left for us was a wonderful addition to an already beautiful weekend. We truly felt "at home". We would love to stay here again. We too had a little trouble finding this house and went to a street by the same name in Mountain Brook (more central Birmingham). If you follow the written directions provided by the owner or put the zip code with "Bessemer" as the city you shouldn't have any trouble.

Owner response: It's always fun to be part of a celebration! Thanks, Jean, I am so glad that your family enjoyed the property....and thanks for the great review! True, it can be confusing as the property is located in unincorporated Jefferson county (which is Birmingham), the Publix/Target shopping center across the interstate is considered Bessemer, and our neighborhood is considered McCalla. This property is located at Exit 1 off I-459 in the McCalla area.
We recently spent Thanksgiving here with our two adult children and their spouses. We can highly recommend this listing. It was very convenient to the interstate, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. We found everything clean, well-maintained and comfortable. The owner was very helpful, also. It provided a great place for a wonderful family experience!!

Owner response: Thank you, David, for your review. I must say that your stay, as well as the previous guest Marsha, had me nervous. Would the setup, kitchenware, and serving pieces be able to pass the test of a "Thanksgiving gathering"? Whew.... :) Thanks for booking our property, we hope you will keep us in mind for future visits to the area.
Excellent in every way!!

This home is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The furniture is like new and everything is well maintained. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and we took advantage by sleeping late every morning! The family area is large and the open area downstairs allows for cooking and chatting with the family at the same time. The kitchen is well equipped and the "welcome" cake left for us by the owner was delicious! The neighborhood is very nice and there is a Publix grocery store quite near the house. This was our first time to use VRBO and every question that we had was promptly and completely addressed by the owner who was an absolute delight to work with! We will definitely stay at this house again on future trips to Birmingham!

Great home for our family of five. We had plenty of room to relax. This was a better alternative than staying in a cramped hotel room. The home was clean and had everything that we needed to make our visit perfect. We used the home as our base to visit the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa and attend the LSU Alabama football game. The home is a short drive on the interstate from the University, but it was was convenient to restaurants and anything else you could possibly need. This is a charming home with attractive, comfortable furnishings. The owner has thought of everything to make the home perfect. We will definitely return to this property on our next visit.

Owner response: I am so glad that you found our home to be convenient...even to Tuscaloosa! We have enjoyed furnishing the home and are pleased when it "fits" the needs of our guests. We appreciate your booking and your review!
It was perfect!!
It was perfect!!
Our stay was perfect. We wanted something for our staff while we attended a convention in Birmingham. It was a little further than we expected from the Convention Center, but it was worth the drive. I will say be sure to put the zip code in your GPS. There is a Clubview Drive in Birmingham & in the town where this house is located & they are not the same. The house was awesome. She had soft music playing as we entered. We also discovered the most beautiful autumn cake & personal note waiting for us. Everything was perfect. It was very clean & well maintained. It was well stocked with everything we needed. I even found a special green coffee mug. We could have moved in & lived forever. The house flows beautifully to allow for gathering or privacy & with 1 man & 5 women, that was a plus. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We will be back.

Why the Owner Chose Birmingham:
This was a part of the Birmingham metro that was still 'untouched'. Just over a decade ago it was only farm land and horse pastures. The beauty of the rolling hills has now been replaced with 'progress' in the form of Publix and Target! Tifotra Dacha is 10 mins from the Galleria Shopping area in Hoover, 20 mins from UAB and Regions Field in downtown Birmingham, and only 30 mins from Tuscaloosa (and some great SEC action!).
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location! Located 1 mile from the intersection of I-20/59 & I-459, this property provides easy interstate access to downtown Birmingham, the Galleria and Summit, Mercedes, and T-Town! Easy access to golf, hiking, Moss Rock Preserve, Oak Mountain State Park, and Tannehill Trade Days!
