Our home is a 7 minute walk from the heart of Columbia, the University of Missouri and Katy Trail. Found in the desirable Old Southwest neighborhood, our home has a cozy charm with unique features like arched doorways on the main floor, all hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, and newly renovated custom kitchen and deck.

We believe in the Golden Rule and giving back and opening our home to all. We don’t discriminate and appreciate the cultures and peoples of all backgrounds.

The space

Renovated home built in 1930's. Fenced in large backyard with mature trees and fire pit. Banquette seating in large, fully equipped, gourmet kitchen that was featured as one of five homes in Columbia's 2013 Kitchen's in Bloom. Arched doorways throughout main floor. A cute little sunroom just off kitchen and living room.

Guest access

You will have access to entire house with the exception of entering the basement. It's under construction at this time. You may however enter the basement to shut off the gas or water.

You may park up to 3 cars in driveway plus on street parking.

The garage is also locked and off limits.

Other things to note

You are welcome to use anything we have provided, however, let us know in advance of any special occasions. We would love to enhance your stay and show our appreciation, by providing a gift appropriate for the occasion. (e.g. University of Missouri greek events, Homecoming, Roots N Blues, anniversaries, True/False film Festival, etc...)

We have Roku TV with HBO Now, Sling TV, and Netflix (please use the 'folks' account) downstairs in the living room. Upstairs in the bedroom, across from the bathroom, there is a TV with Chromecast.

You might also see a friendly neighborhood white cat. His name is KiKi and this is his home, but he enjoys staying outside all year round. Say hi if you're cat friendly! And don't be surprised to see him in the morning and evening hours.

The house has an awesome backyard and fire pit, the kitchen had everything we needed to grill and cook and the bathrooms are super clean. Definitely recommend staying here to anyone looking for a comfortable and clean home that's the perfect distance from downtown: close enough to walk, not so close it'll keep you up! We all had an awesome weekend thanks to Tracy and Alex's super space and outstanding hospitality. Stay here!

Great place and the cat is so friendly! A reflection of the home owners, I think. It was the perfect place and I will likely see if it is available on future trips to Columbia.

We chose Alex’s place because of the location, it was close enough to walk to the bars and the football stadium. The home itself is beautiful, updated main floor, kitchen and a fire pit outside. Plenty of room in the home. Perfect host with great communication and very flexible.
