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.

BAMA BOUND PARENTS!!! Don't sleep in DORM twin beds in SEPARATE rooms with no TVs when you can stay in this lovely condo with 3 TVs with full programming? STAY IN COMFORT!

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.

                                                              This 2 bedroom 2 bath was perfect

                                                              It has everything. A true home away from home. Went to visit our youngest son who is a freshman at UA. Great to have him enjoy Easter with us and have home cooked meals

                                                              Would certainly recommend this place and will be back again

                                                              Joan is very responsive and helpful

                                                              Home away from Home!

                                                              We were in town for a family event and this was a great place to gather with our family from out of town before and after the events. The living room had lots of space for visiting and the kitchen was fully equipped. The beds were comfortable and the house is exactly as advertised. The condo was clean and well organized. Ms. Joan is one of the best host, she is quick to respond to any questions or concerns and even has a welcome packet ready with details for check in/check out and excellent information on great places to eat and visit while in Tuscaloosa. Can't wait to go back to T-town and stay here or at any of her other lovely homes again.

                                                              Excellent experience. This condo was clean, furnished, and very nice. Comfy and spacious!

                                                              Excellent experience. This condo was clean, furnished, and very nice. Comfy and spacious! We stayed 3 nights and 4 days with 4 kids and two adults. This was perfect! All the amenities you would need or want! I highly recommend this property.

                                                              Great place!

                                                              This is probably the nicest rental we’ve ever been in. Such a pleasant stay! Owner was very helpful and provided many recommendations for restaurants and shopping. Super close to UA. Thank you!

                                                              Big Condo! Nice surprise! Very happy!

                                                              Such a pleasant surprise to see how big this condo is. So many others are small and cramped, but this one is very large inside. My hubby loved the super-sized big screen TV! Lol. Our family of 6 had plenty of room during our stay. We even put up a small artificial tree for our Christmas celebration. We’re here to visit family in the area so we know we’ll come back here again and again (and again!)
