Overview

Tuscaloosa House Rental Photos and Description

Private Home, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8); ample secure parking.

Our home can be made available at most anytime, not just for football weekends.

Why fight the crowds and traffic and be subjected to the inconveniences and expenses of motels (if you can get a room) and restaurants (if you can get a table) on football weekends when you can set your own schedule by staying in our home - which is a mere 4 blocks from the stadium. On your walk to the stadium and the quad you will pass grocery stores, fraternity and sororities, boutiques, restaurants and lounges. All are very convenient and no driving is necessary.

Our home was built in 1925 and offers all of the charm and features of homes built in that era. Of course, it has been completely renovated and offers all the amenities one would expect.

The downstairs living area contains a formal living room, separate dining room, kitchen, den and a full bath. The fully equipped kitchen lends itself beautifully to informal entertaining.

Upstairs there is a master bedroom suite and 3 additional bedrooms and another full bath. In the basement there is a two car garage and a very large floored and lighted storage/work area with extra refrigerator and a freezer. There is also ample off street/concrete surfaced parking for guests.

About Owner

The owners are a couple whose children are grown and no longer live at home. We can make the house available for rental at most anytime.

Why Owner chose Tuscaloosa

This is our permanent home. We decided to buy in this location because of the opportunity to own this unique home and grounds so close to the U of A campus, and because of its convenience to all other services. We can make the house available at anytime, not just for football.

What makes this house unique

All football and other U of A events are so convenient - Much more so than any hotel or motel. In addition, the Kentuck Arts & Craft Festival, the River Walk, the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, and all Downtown attractions are very close and convenient.

A WEEKEND WE WILL NEVER FORGET

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this beautiful home went beyond our expectations. We came down for homecoming weekend with the whole family (Sisters, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles). There were 12 of us and we were all very comfortable. It was like staying in our own 5tar resort. The house is meticulously kept. Every bedroom and bathroom was so comfortable and made up with the best of linens and bedding. We planned on cooking and enjoying our time there watching the parade go by. The kitchen goes above and beyond, stocked with every pot, pan, down to every type servicing piece. The collection of fine chine and glassware was so beautiful and the owners want you to enjoy it all. We sat outside on the cozy little patio that overlooked the gorgeous yard with outside fireplace. We felt like we were in a Tuscan villa. It was such a special weekend for us with great family time, in the most beautiful house imaginable. We are hoping to come back for graduation. Thank you so much for allowing us to have make special memory in our family's hearts.

Much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5
We are repeat renters of this beautifully appointed and perfectly located home! Once, for an Alabama football game with 3 families under one roof and the other for UA Graduation weekend with extended family! He owners met our every need and were so gracious and accommodating. The home is set up with everything you could possibly need. The game weekend was the best as the location is so convenient! We were able to enjoy the gorgeous yard, tailgate there before and after the game and have NO parking issues! I recommend it to anyone that wants to have a carefree stay in Tuscaloosa!

Owner's Response: Its always rewarding to hear such wonderful comments about our home. We always try to make our house as comfortable and welcoming as possible - just as we would want if we were the guests. This family was just great to meet and took such good care of our home; so very happy they enjoyed themselves.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful home for our reunion weekend in March. Our stay exceeded my expectations in every way. The hosts could not have been more gracious! The house is beautifully decorated and is immaculate. Our every need was anticipated and met. The grounds were gorgeous,unfortunately it was just too cold to enjoy the patio and the outdoor fireplace. The location was ideal as the home was within walking distance to the University. I highly recommend this beautiful Tuscaloosa rental if you are looking for a perfect "home away from home!"

Amazing home and grounds with great location

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this home for our daughter's graduation from UA in early May, 2012. the pictures on the website are good, but they really do not do the house justice! it is a fantastic home that is beautifully and tastefully furnished and extremely comfortable and has the character that you just don't find in so many rental properties.. the outside grounds are very spacious and beautiful and the house has all the amenities and furnishing that you would need.One of the things that drew us to the house was its location and we were able to walk to many of the restaurants and stores in the area. the owners of the home were as gracious and accomodating folks as you will ever meet and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and insure that we had everything we needed. we had a wonderful week end and the house and its owners played a very large part in our enjoyment of the campus, the town, and the graduation. i would highly recommend this home if you are looking for a place in the area.

Elegant yet comfortable

  • 5 of 5
You simply can not go wrong renting this home. My family (ages ranging from 6 months to 60+) convened last weekend for an Alabama football game and could not have been more pleased with our stay. This home is elegant yet clearly organized for ease and comfort in stay - the bedrooms are appointed to complement the charm of the home; the bathrooms were more consistent with those of a high-end hotel (vs. someone's home); the kitchen/family room was fully equipped (a wonderful remodel) but also warm and inviting. The home itself sits on a beautiful property, including a fire pit in the back yard and could not be more convenient to the University. Traveling with two children under the age of 2 1/2, it was important to us to be able to come and go with ease, and honestly it couldn't have been easier. We all agreed it was a perfect stay - so much so we're hoping to make it a tradition.
