Our quiet, modern, light-filled home is a woodland oasis in the midst of the city. Just two blocks from wonderful shops and restaurants, it overlooks preserved woodlands in the heart of Hillcrest -- Little Rock's most desirable historic neighborhood. We are accepting rentals for a minimum of 28 days--no exceptions.
All guests must respect the right of our neighbors to the sides of us to peace and quiet. Even loud voices will carry on the back deck. If you are expecting a loud or large gathering, this is NOT the rental for you.
Entering the main floor from the driveway or two-car garage, you come into the large open-concept living room/kitchen area with sun room/dining room and adjacent deck (gas grill provided) overlooking the woods. The kitchen is fully furnished, including complimentary coffee. Also on the top floor are the library/office, a half bathroom, laundry room, walk-in pantry, and large master bedroom (queen bed) with its woodland view and private, large master bathroom with double sinks, walk-in closet, separate shower, and jetted tub. Downstairs are two additional bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and a queen bed (both have brand new mattresses), that share a stylish bathroom with a large shower between them. (All linens are provided, as well as soap and shampoo.)
Landscaping and the setting of the house are exceptional. The garden was designed by nationally-known gardening expert P. Allen Smith, and includes a shaded sitting area, koi pond with stone bridge, and mature plantings. The garden is contiguous with city park lands, and feels like your own secret garden.
Guests have full access to the exterior, garage, and interior of the house, except for one locked master bathroom closet and one storage room downstairs. All linens are provided. Guests are asked to start a load of laundry and wash all dishes before leaving.
Children are welcome, but parents of new walkers and crawling babies may find the house a challenge, as the stairs are open to the living room, tables in the living room are glass, much is within their reach, and generally the house is not set up with small children in mind.
Jill is the manager of the property and is a long-time resident of Little Rock who lives just two miles away. She is happy to answer questions and offer help at any time to make your stay in Little Rock as pleasant as possible.
Hillcrest is Little Rock's favorite historic neighborhood. Our house is in the heart of Hillcrest, at the end of a quiet street (Ash St.), and overlooks Allsopp Park on two sides, yet multiple restaurants and coffee shops, year-round Saturday farmers' market, art galleries, a grocery store, liquor store, bank, bars, dry cleaner, salons, and more are all two to six blocks away. We are less than a mile from the University of Arkansas for Medical Science (UAMS) hospital/emergency room, less than two miles from several shopping centers, four miles from downtown and the Clinton Presidential Library, and less than 9 miles from the airport. Location and amenities don't get better than this!
Hillcrest is a walker's paradise. City buses run nearby on Kavanaugh.
Please note: Parking in front of the house can be a challenge for large cars; however, you are welcome to use the two-car garage, and on-street parking is close by. Because of the lovely and private woodland view, the master bedroom and the north-facing downstairs bedroom have no curtains over those windows. You cannot be seen, but light is abundant.
Guests are asked to start a load of laundry and clean all their dishes (there is a dishwasher!) before leaving.
Check in and out are flexible. Feel free to arrive early on your first date, and leave as late as you need. Please contact Jill with any questions; she's happy to help.
