FAQ:

Why does the number of people staying at your condo affect the rates? ~ The number of people, including children, affect the rate because there is added use of sheets, bedding, utilities, and additional wear and tear to the property. The housekeeper must spend more time cleaning, sanitizing, laundering, folding towels, and remaking beds after a larger group's departure.

Why are special event dates, such as football weekends, charged a premium rate? ~ Short-term and Game day rentals are vacant for much of the year. There would be no Short-term or Game Day rentals if the rates for popular events were modest.

Why is Check-in late in the afternoon? ~ There are times when guests have checked-out in the morning, and therefore the housekeeper comes in after to prepare the home for you. Sometimes an earlier Check-in can be agreed to, but only if the Owner agrees in writing after she has checked with the housekeeper's schedule.

We won't be arriving until late in the evening, is that ok? ~ Yes, there are provisions for those who must arrive late at night.

About Joan Lauer

We're an Alabama family who have had 2 children attend The University of Alabama. We're originally from Southern California, and we love Tuscaloosa and The University.

*****

The UA campus is north of the condo property.

Joan Lauer purchased this condo in 2012

Why Joan Lauer chose Tuscaloosa

We bought this property because we know how hard it can be to find accomodations for the popular events in Tuscaloosa. This spacious condo provides much more space than a hotel room and it's close to The University and other popular T-town destinations!

What makes this condo unique

We love the fact that it's located between The University and Midtown Village. Those are two of the places that visitors spend a lot of time at when in Tuscaloosa. The Strip is also very close by. Downtown Tuscaloosa, the RiverWalk, the new Outdoor Amphitheater and other popular destinations are only a few minutes away. Lake Tuscaloosa is also nearby and offers many water sports.

The upscale complex offers resort-like amenities with large pools, clubhouse, exercise room, tanning beds, game room with pool table and table tennis, media room, and business room.

University Downs Condo

  • 5 of 5
Our two night stay at the University Downs Condo was very pleasant. We normally book a hotel room for our trips down to Tuscaloosa, but decided we would try something different on this trip. It was a GREAT decision. Not only were we 100% more comfortable, but we felt at home in the condo. The condo was nicely decorated, had all of the amenities you would have at your home and generally felt right at home vs cooped up in a hotel room for two nights. Our host was very helpful throughout the process and kept in touch with us before and after the trip!

Happy to stay at a place that is well cared for

  • 5 of 5
The condo was well stocked, clean and very comfortable for our family of 5. You could tell that the owner treated this as her home, and we did too. We stayed because my daughter had orrientation at the college and this condo was so close to everything we needed. The weather was great so we enjoyed the pool too. We would definelty stay here again. Joan the owner was so great to deal with.

Everything was as described and perfect

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. All communications from the owners were friendly and helpful, and check-in/check-out instructions were very detailed and helpful. If you aren't familiar with Tuscaloosa, you will appreciate the list of local restaurants provided by the owners as well as the convenience of location - very close to campus, groceries, and the mall. The condo was immaculate and well-stocked with anything we could have needed. One of our favorite new places to eat is Newk's - be sure to check it out during your stay. We highly recommend this property and we will definitely stay again. Thank you so much for giving us a home away from home while we were in town.
