Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 1100 Sq. Ft

Quaint renovated bungalow located just one and a half blocks from the campus of Missouri State University. Only minutes from JQH arena, Springfield Cardinals Baseball and downtown Springfield, which features a variety of restaurants and entertainment. Within two miles of Mercy Hospital and three miles from Bass Pro.

Originally built in 1915, it has two bedrooms, one bath with a comfortable living area. Larger dining area with seating for six. Claw foot tub with shower, Queen Bed in Master, trundled twin beds in second bedroom.

All old homes are quirky, and remind us that life was much different 100 years ago. Bedrooms are small and living is close. Doors creek and don't always shut; everything has been painted four or five times. But that's what gives these homes their charm. Although the walls are old, everything else is nearly new. Sleeps 4 in beds. There is a couch in the living area, but it does not fold out, (if needed, someone could sleep on it). One year old stove and refrigerator with breakfast nook for two. Large fenced backyard with plenty of space to play and a deck with a fire pit for nice evenings outside. We have a couple of bikes available for use. Hi-speed Internet (3mb^/3mb). 42 inch smart TV over gas fireplace offers access to Netflix and the internet. Gas fireplace is fickle, so it's best not to count on it.

Hardware floors throughout, lots of natural lighting. A very comfortable place to relax and unwind, or enjoy watching cars pass by while on the front porch swing.

This is an ideal place for a small young family of four. If you need space for more than five, please search VRBO for something larger. It costs a bit more than other rentals because we use the space as our own get-away, and we are looking for renters who are more interested in quality than the lowest price. At this time the only discount we offer is reflected in the weekly rate. We also have a strict no pet policy and a strict no smoking policy (no smoking in the house or outside--if you are or someone in your party smokes, we kindly ask you to make other arrangements for lodging. If you have a service animal, please contact us to see if our home is suitable for your needs). Also, as a vacation rental, we do not offer extended stays--longer than 10 days.

About Thomas & Sarah Jones

We purchased this home for our personal use when we stay in Springfield, but realized that we didn't use it as much as we thought we would. We have several rentals, but this is our first try at Vacation Home renting. Over the last 10 years, we have used VRBO for our personal vacations, and enjoy staying in a nice home rather than a carbon-copied hotel room. We wanted to see if being a VRBO owner would be as nice as being a VRBO user.

Thomas & Sarah Jones purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Thomas & Sarah Jones chose Springfield

The downtown-MSU corridor is the nicest part of Springfield--with its older homes, large trees and vibrant atmosphere, its close proximity to downtown and arts, there is a real sense of community in this area. That's why most of the VRBO rentals in Springfield are located so close to one another.

What makes this bungalow unique

A nice blend of old charm and modern accessories.

Great location; close to downtown Springfield, Drury, and MSU.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time busting our daughter who attends Drury University. Three of her friends came over for dinner one evening and it was the perfect size home for hanging out, making dinner, and creating memories. The home has been nicely renovated yet retains much of the charm from the early 1900's. We'll definitely be back. Our only recommendation is the bed in the master bedroom could use an upgrade. Other than that, this home is a winner! Thank you Thomas and Sara!

Quaint house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at the house for one week for a basketball tournament. The house is in a great central location with easy access to travel around the city. It was chilly during our stay (even had some flurries!), so we weren't able to enjoy the yard as much as wanted to, but near the end of our trip we were able to enjoy the outdoor sitting area in the backyard and the front porch swing. The house is equipped with everything you need to feel at home - kitchen well stocked, comfortable beds, games, books, TV with Netflix, Wifi, etc. The owners respond very quickly to any questions or issues you may have during your stay. The only thing we wished the house had was a washer/dryer, although there is a laundry mat just down the street if you don't want to hand wash some clothes in the sink. It will definitely be our first choice when we come back to Springfield!

PERFECT PLACE FOR OUR NEW FAMILY

  • 5 of 5

We needed a comfortable place to stay after adopting our newborn son in Springfield. This charming home could not have been better! It was so clean, so "homey" and was the perfect location. We loved having the Smart TV with Netflix, etc. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. You will not regret booking this place. Tom is so kind and very easy to work with. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts and we look forward to staying here again during a trip back to Springfield!

This is a great spot for a stay near Missouri State campus and all things Springfield. Everything you need is here. Be sure to eat at Civil Kitchen, Springfield BrewCo, Grad School, CB Social House, City Butcher, Elle's, Black Sheep Burgers & Shakes, Flame. Farmer's Market is great in the spring and summer.

Perfect spot for MSU parent weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for MSU parent weekend. We were 1/2 mile from our daughter's sorority house. It was clean, had a porch with a swing and a nice TV to watch our Cubbies play. The only suggestion that I have is to have screens on the windows so you could open them and let in the cool night air. We call dibs for next year's parent weekend!
