All about Emily & Jeff’s place

Historic charm, cozy comfort, ample amenities, warm hospitality, and a private patio entrance thru a hidden garden give this renovated historic loft its unique character. Located steps from the UofSC front gates, in a central walkable location in the heart of the historic Univ. Hills neighborhood, and just mins walk to shopping/dining. CDC approved antiviral/antibacterial disinfectants used after each guest. Search availability for all 4 garden courtyard lofts at www.CampusCourtyardLofts. com

The space
This courtyard apartment's separate private entrance is located across the courtyard just off of the driveway where you will park your car. It has a digital keypad that is individually programmed with your personal code for your security and privacy. This apartment is next door to the Nest and across the courtyard from our other AirBnBs, The Coop, and The Roost.

We feel that how we clean our lofts, is one of the things that helps set us apart. Each loft is disinfected with a CDC approved antiviral/antibacterial cleaner after each guest. Linens are also washed after each stay to ensure that your room will be as fresh as possible. All mattresses and pillows are fitted with anti-allergen covers and each loft has a Hepa air filter to protect against air borne allergens.

Follow the brick pathway across the courtyard onto your patio. The apartment contains a Queen bed, driftwood flooring, exposed brick walls, exposed wood beam ceiling, ceiling fan, ample windows, TV with streaming content (Roku featuring, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Pluto and more), high speed WiFi, small kitchenette, central heat and air conditioning, recycled-100-year-old-wood counter tops, sink, fridge, built in shelves, small fridge, Keurig coffee maker, snacks, microwave, dishes, utensils, small bathroom with shower, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, and Hepa air purifier all add to the character of this space. We also offer our guests light snacks so that they may settle in comfortably. The 1920s bathroom is on the small side and was renovated in 2019. It features a farm house style sink, mirror and rain head shower.


Our studio is cleaned and sanitized before each new guest. Bed is made with fresh linens and clean towels are provided. The mattress and pillows are protected with anti-allergy/bed bug/dust mite covers.

Many of our guests arrive from the airport via Uber as this is a walkable location that does not require a car for most downtown areas of interest.

One free off-street parking is included with your booking. We may be able to accommodate a second vehicle, but please check with us in advance. Due to our proximity to campus, parking is tight and best suited for small to mid-sized vehicles, but we have added a separate parking spot in the parking lot right next door to accommodate oversized vehicles. Space is at a premium in this area making free parking a nice amenity for our guests. We can often accommodate early/late vehicle parking, if arranged in advance. Smaller vehicles are welcome to use one of our two garage spots. We are not responsible for your vehicle or any of its contents during your stay.

There is (1) security camera in plain sight on the premises overlooking the parking spots for your security and to aid us in helping you find parking.

We are a husband/wife team that strive to provide our guests with a clean, cozy, and stylish alternative to a generic hotel. We enjoy meeting our guests and personally welcoming them to Soda City. We only open our calendar about 6 months in advance, so if there is a future date you would like to book, please message us with what brings you to Columbia and the dates you are interested in booking and we will see if we can accommodate you. We are members of Historic Columbia and enjoy learning about the history of our city. Our love for older properties and appreciation for the warm character of Columbia's architecture is what brought us to rehabilitating these turn of the century apartments. We enjoy the adventure of traveling to new destinations and especially discovering new foods and friends along the way.
