  • Wonderful Graduation Weekend!

    "This beautiful cottage was inviting, comfortable and enjoyed by everyone during the graduation weekend. There was plenty of room, great furnishings, very comfortable beds and wonderful baths. Mornings on the front porch were a very special treat...gotta love that swing! Gina was so an after graduation party and having everything beautifully arranged and ready to go when we walked in the door after the ceremony. She even made some special Alabama "A" & "Elephant" cookies for the party and became our official photographer! The food was great and we didn't have to worry about doing anything but enjoying our friends and family that were there visiting for the day. Thank you Gina for making our graduation weekend so special! I would highly recommend your beautiful home to anyone planning a trip to Tuscaloosa and hope to have an opportunity to visit again on my next trip to T-town...ROLL TIDE!!!"

  • Perfect for us

    "We stayed here for a wedding and it was perfect for us. Great location and clean and tidy. We didn't get to use the pool but the pool area was very nice. Drew was very helpful when I called to ask some questions and I really appreciated his time. I passed this property info on to my nephew who lives in Tuscaloosa so he could recommend it to friends and other family coming in to visit. We were not there for a game but the stadium is within walking distance and there was a fun neighborhood bar half a block from the condo and was very good. They even had microbrews from our hometown, Asheville, NC. For a great night stay, choose this condo."

  • Fabulous!

    "This is a GREAT little place to stay! It has everything you need and is very comfortable. My husband said it was the best place we have stayed so far and he did not want me to review it so that it could be our little secret. It made it so that we could visit with our son and his friends without being crammed in a dorm or hotel room or a busy lobby. We were able to take our Frenchie along and she loved it, too. It is very convenient to walk to shops or restaurants, yet seems like it is secluded away. The owner is wonderful and has really thought things through to make your stay the best."
