"The property was clean, well kept, well organized and just as advertised. The owner was quite attentive and helpful. He even reached out to make sure we were aware of severe weather on the way. Also accommodated some extra requests very nicely. We highly recommend this loft for visitors to Huntsville,"

Within Walking Distance:

Several shops and eight!! restaurants only a 7 min walk from the Huntsville Studio Loft.

The Huntsville Studio Loft is not only a great place to stay for folks from the USA, but now the loft is a favorite with British and European travelers as well!

Since the Huntsville Studio Loft started, we have had visitors from France, England, Germany, and Italy. A big thank you to our new friends.

The Loft is located in the City Limits of Huntsville: Zip Code 35806.


Huntsville has been named the 'top adventure town' for Alabama by National Geographic Adventure Magazine:

'High tech with a southern twang, Huntsville is a major base for NASA and the U.S. Army. Pedal 11 miles of singletrack in Wade Mountain Preserve or trek to the top of 1,100-foot Devil's Race Track for views into Tennessee.'

We have a fully furnished short-term accommodation within a 10 minute walk from the center of the Village of Providence in Huntsville, Alabama. With over 1100 square feet, the IKEA furnished modern living environment is a quiet & private getaway with all the amenities you would expect with several great restaurants, shopping, and dry cleaners are within a 10 minute walk from the loft.


To help you stay fit during your travels, there is the scenic & beautiful Indian Creek & 1.4 mile Greenway fitness trail for walking, running, and cycling within a 2 minute walk(literally) of the front door of the loft. Some of Alabama's best Mountain Biking is only a short drive away and, there are several state of the art fitness centers within a 5 mile radius of the loft.

In Huntsville, you can play a Robert Trent Jones golf course, visit the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Space Camp & IMAX, and stroll down the historic streets of Huntsville’s Twickenham district. Nashville, Birmingham, & Chattanooga are all only 90 minutes away from Huntsville.


If you are on temporary assignment to Huntsville, Redstone Arsenal, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and Cummings Research Park are within 10 minutes of the Studio Loft. What an awesome location; you can stay in the village loft and yet be 10 minutes away by car from shopping, museums, parks and much more.


The Huntsville studio loft has a private entrance even though it is attached to a house. The loft is very quiet, private, and secure. Business and holiday travelers will appreciate the home-away-from-home amenities. There is a fully-equipped, self-catering kitchen, full-size refrigerator, new stove, microwave, and small appliances surrounded by ample cabinets. Full bathroom, with bathtub/shower; towels supplied, private telephone line with unlimited free local calls (long distance by calling card), WiFi, stacked full-size washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, large closet, 47' HDTV Home Theater, Xbox, books, games, and a yoga area.

The loft is also equipped with wood and tile floors and functional IKEA furniture. There is a queen bed in the bedroom area and a pullout IKEA couch in the living room area. Walking is encouraged in the neighborhood. Jack Lynch Park and again, a great nature trail are just outside your door.

Huntsville, with its central location and a multitude of activities, is a great place to visit. Staying in the Huntsville studio loft will make your visit a very pleasant experience.



The Huntsville Studio Loft is suitable for sleeping a maximum of two adults and two children ages 8 and above.

PARKING: Parking is limited to ONLY ONE (1) medium-sized vehicle. Studio Loft parking is NOT available for RVs, large SUVs, large trucks and pick-ups, commercial vehicles, or motorcycles.

DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS: A $300 security/damage deposit is required to secure a booking and will be returned within thirty days of departure, provided the Studio Loft is left in its original excellent condition. Full payment is required 30 days prior to arrival. If booking is made within the 30 days prior to arrival, the entire amount of the rental and deposit are to be sent in the form of certified funds via next day service. CC & PAYPAL ALSO ACCEPTED AS PAYMENT.

CANCELLATION POLICY - If a cancellation occurs during the time the owner has received the deposit, but prior to receiving the rental payment, the deposit will be forfeited, unless a new booking is secured and a successful rental is obtained.

We have been in Huntsville for many years. It's a great place to live. Let us know if you have any questions.

Gary Braden purchased this apartment in 2005

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this VRBO is a huge asset to the property. The VRBO is located in a very safe, quiet, and private neighborhood that has a nice Greenway walking trial that is parallel to babbling waters of the beautiful Indian Creek. Come see for yourself.

If you are a fitness enthusiast, this is the place for you. There are several locations to run and bike. The world class University Fitness Center is just under 5 miles away.

Yoga & Spa Services: Weather permitting, the village's Lululemon Athletica showroom (about a 7 min walk from the loft) sponsors a FREE outdoor (or indoor if the weather is bad) Yoga classes in the common area across from Grille 29 every Friday afternoon. The indoor yoga classes are on the 2nd floor of Madison Drugs.

There are now seven (7) restaurants within walking distance of the loft. You have have breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week if you like.

We are sure you will love the Huntsville Studio Loft.

Clean, comfortable well maintained, great service wonderful area lots to see and do great restaurants, easy access to grocery stores etc. Gary is a very nice guy and helpful always. I attended a six week training on the base and this was the perfect place to study while relaxing and having all the comforts of home. Thanks again Gary, take care.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely LOVED staying here! I booked this to stay while my daughter was a Space Camp, and it provided everything I needed - peace and quiet, a quaint "town center" with wonderful restaurants and small shops. There was a wide variety of restaurants that were a short walk in a lovely area. Of course, being from Florida, I was very excited about having a Publix about a 5 minute drive, too! Gary was like my personal 'concierge' and was more than accommodating with any questions I had. Since I was traveling alone I did have a few concerns prior to arriving, but as soon as I drove through the area and met Gary, I knew this was the right decision instead of a hotel. The ambiance in the loft was comfortable, relaxing, and provided the perfect environment for me to get some very intense work done via online (no problems at all with the internet!). They provide everything you need in the kitchen and living space - I brought a family member over for a couple of nights and we had board games, a nice t.v., and a full kitchen to enjoy! I can't say enough about this place except that I hope it is available next summer during my daughter's Space Camp week!

What can I say that hasn't been said already

What can I say about the loft that hasn't been said already. It simply makes your smile :)

The unique and creative attention to detail, paired with out most attentive host (Gary) has made our first trip to the US a roaring success. Out six year old daughter went as far as to say she would like to live in the loft forever!

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

We booked the loft for our most recent trip home to visit family and it was truly spectacular. The pictures fall short of just how great the space is. It's like being in one of those apartments from a movie or TV show that seems way too cool to actually be real. From the art, to the myriad lighting options, to the clever use of unexpected things (like spare window frames) everything fits and has a purpose.

Gary and Anna really went the extra mile to make the loft an easy place to stay. They provide a binder with pretty much everything you could possibly need to know about the space. Every light switch is labeled so there's no confusion about what turns on what. There are even surge protectors with USB ports for easy charging.

We have definitely decided that this will be our regular spot for visits.

Loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

On our annual trip to Huntsville my wife and I stayed 4 nights in the Huntsville Studio loft. We loved having all the comforts of home, and Anna's art that decorates the loft was awesome. The loft was VERY clean, and had all the comforts of home. Proximity to restaurants in Providence village was great. Communication with Gary was easy and always very punctual. We will be staying again next year!
