Clean and Spacious Home with Brand New Fire Pit! Our Guests say "Fabulous! The Best Airbnb Yet!"
1250 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Sherry
8 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms


Family togetherness is easy at this sleek, contemporary home on South John Ave, just 3 miles from Missouri State University. The Haven is a pristine (but not fussy!) home away from home, and can easily accommodate up to 8 guests in the 3 bedrooms. Snuggle up on the sectional for movie night around the electric fire—everyone’s welcome here.

The Space
Walk into the living room, and lush rugs and clean, contemporary furniture greet you. Below the flat-screen TV, a 60” electric fireplace will warm any chilly nights.

Cooks will swoon for high-end appliances in the kitchen. Six guests can join you around the 8-foot island. Family dinner never came together so effortlessly. There’s room for 6 at the dining table—or expand it to accommodate 8-10 with a convenient leaf.

With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, everyone will have their own space. The master and second bedrooms each have a queen bed, dressers, and plenty of mirror space. Behind a sliding barn door in the master, you’ll discover an en suite bathroom with a 48” shower. Plush towels, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are all provided, of course.

The “Bunk Room” has 2 twin beds, each with a trundle underneath to sleep a total of 4. All the beds are comfy enough for grown-ups! Deploy the privacy curtain (if you need a moment) or get a little work done at the large double desk.

Down the hall there’s a second bathroom, with 2 sinks to make getting ready a breeze. Gorgeous marble tiles surround you in the tub for a relaxing soak. Aaah!

Outside Facilities:
You will love the new fire pit! Gather round a roaring fire with family and friends.Roast some marshmallows and make S'mores! Or just relax and gaze at the stars.

The Neighborhood
You’ve found a slice of quiet suburban heaven, just a few miles from MSU, conveniently located off the 65. Travel the tree-lined streets to the nearby Springfield Art Museum, where you’ll find free admission year-round. Take in culture there or hit up a game at MSU—the best of Springfield is right here. For some family fun and a bit of nature appreciation, head to World Famous Bass Pro Shops or the Wonders of Wildlife museum, both less than 5 miles away.
Getting Around
Springfield is a suburban town, so buckle your seatbelts and bring your car! Keep your vehicles protected in the attached 2 car garage, or park in the driveway (your choice). Uber and Lyft are available too, if you’re planning a night on the town.
Other Things to Note
We’ve kept your comfort in mind—you’ll have WiFi and Netflix, and snacks are provided. The Keurig coffee bar is fully stocked with coffee pods, tea, cream, and sugar.

Need to do laundry? You’re welcome to! There’s a washer and dryer, and detergent is provided. An iron and steamer are there, just in case, so you can stay crisp on your travels.
