Great Location and Peaceful
The bungalow was very cute and cozy, and it is in a great location. We used all of the rooms, and the kitchen and dining room were especially helpful since we were there for three weeks. The only draw back is that there is no separate working area. My husband converted the second bedroom into a makeshift office so he could work in a private space, which he needs. I used the dinning room, so I had to clear off my work for every meal. Otherwise, the wifi worked great, and we were able to stay productive. Downtown is close enough that with a comfortable pair of shoes, you can easily walk to Falls Park. We had our dog with us, so we enjoyed walking around the adjacent neighborhoods as well. If you're a runner, and you need a grassy place to run, The Pavilion is one of your best bets. It was soccer season so many of the fields were in use, but my husband was still able to find space for himself. It is about a 10-minute drive from the house, but it's a straight shot. There is a Publix grocery store in downtown, but use your GPS, it's tucked away and tricky to find if you don't know where it is. We also enjoyed the Fresh Market, which is a more upscale grocery store. Our best restaurant experience was American Grocery - expensive, but excellent. We also enjoyed the Green Room and Tupelo Honey. Passerelle Bistro was a little disappointing, but had very nice bread, and you can take your dog if you sit outside, which is true for many of the restaurants. For a local coffee shop, I recommend Coffee Underground on cold nights because it has a very cozy atmosphere, but during they day, I prefer Caviar and Bananas or if you want a hipster vibe, try Methodical Coffee. All of these are downtown, but sadly they are not close enough to the house to quickly drop in and grab a coffee. Unfortunately, there is no good coffee near the house. I tried Two Chefs Cafe and Market, but all they offered was a pump canister of regular American coffee - I was not impressed. For some old fashioned local southern fare, try Tommy's Country Ham House, which is close by (I recommend the buffet). I'm a foodie and Greenville native, so I hope the review about the house and restaurants is helpful. We spent most of our time visiting with family and friends, but for entertainment check out the Peace Center and other play houses and comedy houses. If you enjoy baseball, catch a local game at Flour Field, and there may be a hockey game or big concert at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
