My historic home is in the heart of Southside/Glen-Iris. The spacious layout and hardwood floors make it particularly inviting and offer plenty of space for you to relax. I'm an easy-going host and my two felines will be delighted to meet you.
I'm Birmingham's biggest fan and will happily point you in the direction of must-experience restaurants, bars, nightlife and parks... just ask!
The entire apartment, save for my room, will be open to you: living rooms, front porch, and the shared bathroom.
Please notify me if you plan to use kitchen. It is off-limits to guests aside from grabbing a glass of water/ice unless I know in advance you plan to cook your meals.
Interaction with guests
This is mine and my beau's residence. We have very busy schedules and may or may not see you. If it is a weekday we will be home to unwind and cook dinner. If it's a weekend, our schedules vary. If you'd like to know when/if we plan to be home, just ask. We respect your privacy but will be happy to chat about any questions you may have or life in general :)
The cats may want to play welcoming committee but are also happy to stay out of your room if you wish to keep the door closed.
Other things to note
There is a mini fridge in the room with cold coffee and water. It also allows you private food storage (please ask before storing things in our fridge). There is a hot water kettle provided in the room. If you decide to keep food in your room, please keep the door closed as the cats get a thrill out of crinkly plastic noise and may make your snacks theirs.
If you are expecting daily housekeeping service and a full-time hospitality staff, please note that you may be more comfortable in a hotel (there are some fab ones downtown!) or another listing more expensive than mine. I am offering a comfortable and fully equipped guest room - with a handful of 'bonus' amenities - but I'm not qualified or capable of providing you with an upscale hotel experience at this price point :)
Obvious rules: no drugs, no illegal activities, no unapproved guests (this is anyone entering my home, even briefly, whom is not a listed Airbnb guest), no firearms and no unapproved pets.
Do not let the cats outside. Please notify me immediately if you do. If I return home to find them outdoors you will incur a $10 fee, per-cat/per-instance to cover the expense of grooming/medication.
Your pets *may* be allowed but only with my pre-approval before you have booked.
My home is un-apologetically LGBTQ friendly. Please refrain from hate speech within its walls.
No smoking inside or within 20 ft of either entry.

I'm a huge proponent of Birmingham and hope that you'll love my sweet city as much as I do. I've been hosting for 2 years and absolutely love welcoming people into my home.
