Long family weekend
Long family weekend
This home was a great location and perfect for everything we wanted to do -- zoo, shopping, travel to Lincoln for the football game. We had 6 adults and 2 toddlers and the house fit everyone perfectly, with plenty of room for the little ones to play, including a great fenced yard. Everyone was so helpful and welcoming and Lisa's next door neighbor brought over fresh tomatoes! Great weekend to reconnect with family that we don't see as often as we'd like. Thanks!

Lisa met me at the front door to her beautiful home that is just now being rented out to travelers. I have rented homes before and I really like the closeness of a home. Lisa has a real touch in decorating which made the atmosphere for my family perfectly relaxing. There were 7 adults and 2 grandchildren in our party and my sons family from Omaha adding 2 more adults another grandchild for some meals and we had plenty of space. Easy as Sunday morning.

Owner response: Ralph...Thanks so much for the kind words about the home and your stay. "Easy as Sunday Morning"...what a pleasant way to picture your stay. Hope you will come back on your next visit...loved having all of you!
Great week in Omaha.
Great week in Omaha.
My husband and myself and three other couples stayed in this home during the week of the College World Series. The location was great, just a couple of blocks off the Interstate and only a few miles to the stadium. The owner was wonderful to deal with and she made our stay even more enjoyable by giving us information on everything in the area. The home was clean and very well decorated and also in a very nice neighborhood. We also received our refund check within a week. We will definitely consider this home again.

Why the Owner Chose Omaha:
This home has been in our family for 40 years. Having started rental properties and realizing we were not fully utilizing the spaciousness of this home we have decided to let others enjoy all the space and comforts it has to offer by adding it as our 3rd Cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great location...catholic church and playground 1/2 block, quiet older neighborhood...super easy access to everything. 2 Car garage and driveway parking for up to 6 vehicles. Upscale furnishings...Not A Party Home!!!
