Why Jeanie Carmichael chose Metropolitan Alabama

Tuscaloosa is a great place to be. Our town is not too big or too small. We have an amazing university with all of it's music, theater and dance performances available to the public. There are plenty of restaurants and music venues in town as well. Lake Tuscaloosa is close by with great scenery, wildlife, boating, fishing and swimming.

What makes this house unique

Central location near the mall is very convenient. Mall offers shuttle service to stadium during games. Large private yard lets you forget you are right in the middle of town. Great garden setting for your unique gathering. Loads of historic charm. Sit back and enjoy the fish pond while waiting for your steaks to grill.

Roomy and great for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

The house was ready and everything as described. We had a minor issue with he internet, but the owner got involved quickly and resolved the issue. Very quiet location, but not too far from UA campus. Highly recommended for football weekend and/or a getaway retreat.

Wonderful home to stay at during your visit to Tuscaloosa

  • 5 of 5

My entire family came down for Alabama's parents weekend and we settled on staying at this awesome place. We were immediately surprised at how spacious all 8 adults were able to fit in the house. Each couple had their own rooms and enjoyed relaxing together in the common area when we weren't running around town. I would highly recommend this place if you have a larger group you need to accommodate. The price was affordable, the place was clean and overall very cozy and quiet.

Great Place to Stay for Bama Game!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 friends & I just stayed at this large house for our first Bama game. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay. We looked at hotels but they were more expensive & you obviously don't get your own rooms, big screen tv, & lot of room to stretch out like you do with a house. House has a very large outside area with bbq, proches, etc that we didn't get a chance to use much. The bathrooms/bedrooms were all very clean. Lastly, the owners were very responsive and helpful throughout the rental process. They even found our lost phone & fedex'd it at no charge.
