My place is close to Terry Trueblood park (.4mi), downtown Iowa City (2.7mi), Johnson County fairgrounds (2.2mi), HyVee and other shopping (1.6mi). You’ll love my place because it is a private basement guestroom with a memory foam queen bed and private bathroom, view of fruit trees in the backyard, close to downtown, yet on the edge of town. You are a guest in our family environment. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

The space

This is a private bed and bath in a family home. The bed is a memory foam mattress with a comfy down comforter. Big, picture window in your room and walk-out basement exit near your room.

Guest access

You have private use of your bedroom and bathroom. There is a family living area with toys and large screen TV you can have access too. Also welcome to use what space you can find in the fridge and freezer :)

Interaction with guests

I am a stay-at-home mom, so I am often available to help give directions or other helps as needed. Only ask Alex what there is to do in Iowa City if you have a while for a long chat - he is pretty passionate about our community!

We had a lovely stay with Sarah and her family! They were all so welcoming and friendly and the kids were super sweet. The room was very clean and comfortable. The house was about a 5 minute drive to downtown so it worked perfectly for our visit. It was great to be able to come and go as we pleased. There is a lot of hustle and bustle in the morning which was fine for us because we were up in the mornings anyways but might not be ideal if you're wanting to sleep in. We would stay here again if in town!

Sarah is very communicative and nice. I was staying for just one night and unfortunately, did not find the time and chance to spend more time with her and her lovely family. The place is just as described, very clean and had everything I needed. Since I had a car and did not have to go out in the evening, can not say about the accessibility of the location without a car but the neighborhood is nice, safe and quiet. I would highly recommend Sarah's place if you are staying in Iowa City.

We had a quick stay at Sarah's. It is a great value and lovely place to stay in Iowa City. Very clean and comfortable and spacious. Sarah was super friendly, welcoming, and very accommodating. We enjoyed a very peaceful night in her home. Cozy private space, great water pressure in the shower, thoughtful and friendly hosts. We would definitely recommend!
