  • Great girls getaway!

    "My girlfriends and I rented this place for my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. It was perfect for the 6 of us. Location is ideal, and the home was nicely maintained. The owner (Ed) went above and beyond to make sure we had details about Galena, where to go and what to see. He was very quick to answer all our questions and made sure that we had a memorable experience. He also included access to the owner's club where we could use the pools etc in his fee. He also doesn't charge an extra cleaning fee, making this one of the most affordable units around. This unit is at the end of the street, so it's very quiet and peaceful. The back yard was amazing!!!"

  • Comfortable and convenient

    "Stayed here while visiting nearby relatives for the holidays. Everything worked and it was a nice weekend. Bumped my knees several times on the wooden bed frame. Careful!"

  • Great Large family getaway

    "I booked this place for an extended family getaway for a long weekend. Age 70 to just 1 year (brought a pack and play for the baby). Everyone found something to do. Fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, game room, horseback riding, kayak, by the way all of this was done right in the community the house is at. Plus of course heading into downtown Galena for shopping...only a 15 to 20 minute drive. If you plan on coming I would recommend making reservations at the stable for riding and the kayaks as soon as you get there. They can book up fast especially on Sat/Sun. I would only bring bikes if those who are riding are old enough to be comfortable on the road (no sidewalks) and can handle HILLS! Although there is a nice paved trail up the way it is extremely hilly, we are talking going down at 25 mph and having to walk the bike partway up the hills. That being said there were several of us adults and some pre-teen and teenagers who rode the bikes to the pool. Totally doable, only about 1.5 mi ride to the pool and game room, (bring a bike lock), but again extremely hilly and you are sharing the road with cars. Now to the house, just as it is pictured! The only thing missing out the pictures is the hill that makes up the driveway! Mavis was extremely helpful with questions prior to booking and never had a problem there. The kitchen has plenty of pots/pans, even a Keurig. No need to bring much. I just brought my favorite chopping knife. There is a Piggly Wiggly grocery store about 5 minutes past downtown Galena. We actually only ate out for a few lunches, we had all our dinners in the house...utilized the grill often. (Grill is not perfect, the shelf is WOBBLY, but will do.) I would totally recommend this place to a large family. Lots of fun in the area."

  • Perfect for an executive family relocating.

    "Our family of 4 was relocating to the Chicago area and we needed a place that was fully furnished and could accommodate us while we house hunted. The listing description is accurate. The furnishings are beautiful and the space is professionally decorated. This is, by far, the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a rental! It was a perfect fit for us and exceeded our expectations. The proximity to everything is great. Walking distance to the train station, library, post office, shopping, and dining. The owners are wonderful!! They were in touch with me as soon as I contacted them. They were helpful and provided lots of information before and during our stay. We moved in the end of December and enjoyed it so much we stayed until the middle of April. If you are looking for an upscale rental in a great community this place is for you. Thank you for a great stay!"
