Where you’ll be

Jackson, Mississippi, United States

Located right off busy North State Street we are truly in the heart of Fondren, the artistic and social hub of Jackson! Enjoy a morning walk through the neighborhood, checking out the many vintage bungalows and cottages, many outfitted with funky yard-art and colorful birdhouses. "Downtown” Fondren is walking distance (10 minutes) or a quick Uber or Lyft ride. Explore local live music (Duling Hall), fabulous restaurants, delicious bakeries, independently-owned coffee shops, boutique and vintage shopping and more! It's a 10 minute drive to Hal & Mals, a restaurant and music venue with music 7 nights a week including authentic Mississippi blues on Monday nights. We're also within a 5-10 minute drive of all local universities, medical facilities and museums as well as major shopping areas.

I love to travel and host visitors to my Airbnb, The Funky Monkey in Jackson, Mississippi. I am a native Mississippian, retired, and active in all things Jackson! I especially enjoy the music scene in Jackson and my neighborhood of Fondren. I am a flexible, casual host and guest and provide the best experience for my guests and hosts as possible! And I am a lifelong monkey lover! My husband, Rick, is a sports journalist and co-host of the Funky Monkey.
