My best friend Angie and I needed a quite getaway for the weekend. We found the Pool House and could not have been happier! The bed was soft, the shower was refreshing, and the attention to detail was amazing. Fresh flowers in the house, blankets...More

Melissa and Angie brought smiles to our faces as they swam, explored and enjoyed our Pool House and Southern Illinois. They left the place sparkling clean as well. I'd have to give them an A++ as guests and A++ as great people.

The hosts have thought of everything- many things I wouldn't think about. Frankly, this is the closest place to a luxury hotel in the area. This is the place to call home base when you need to rest and relax. The loft room is comfy...More

The Pool House is the best Airbnb experience we've ever had. Carbondale, IL, has its charms, but Pool House is a destination unto itself. This is a place where the whole is very much more than the sum of its parts. Every last detail has...More

Interaction with guests
We love meeting people and sharing our gardens, pool and home. Jane and I enjoy travel in our renovated 1967 Avion truck camper, visiting family, friends, and beauty spots across the U.S., as well as journeys to Europe to visit family in Copenhagen and travel to other interesting locales. We'll be happy to talk about the area and its attractions, SIUC or the history of the region. We also respect the privacy of our guests in the completely separate Pool House. Feel free to enjoy quiet solitude.

About the neighborhood
Carbondale is unique in Illinois having one of the highest rates of college education - top 3% in the US. It also has the largest population of Millenials in Illinois at over 60%. Of course, that's due to SIUC which is just a few blocks away. The most retro bar in the Midwest, PK's, is just 4 blocks away. We are near an 'ecotone' of international importance in the Cache River bottoms - a place where the northernmost of southern species live alongside of the southernmost of northern species. We reside in the middle of orchard country where peaches and apples are ripened to perfection in season. And there is the well known wine trail, with award winning vintages.
Getting around
An automobile is not needed for shopping, visiting SIUC, Memorial Hospital and dining on the 'Strip'. Visiting the Wine Trail or Breweries can be arranged with private transportation companies. We lend out two vintage Schwinn bikes as well.
