SMILE HOUSE IS AWESOME!
"Seven girls just rocked New Orleans and loved staying at Smile House. There is plenty of space to sleep, party, and get glammed up to go out. The house is really close to multiple independent restaurants, Ruby Slipper for breakfast is like a two minute walk...the French Quarter is very close, and there were no issues finding street parking. The neighbors hired a band and an escort to have their own personal parade. You can have a peaceful stay here or a more lively one...it's up to you."

"If you are looking for the ultimate experience in France, Oaks and Olives is the place. The house is perfect: absolutely charming while totally modern and functional. The kitchen is large and well equipped (you can tell the hosts are serious about their food!), the living/dining space is large and comfortable, and with two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and two with a shared bathroom, there is plenty of room. One patio gets lovely morning sun and the other, overlooking the beautiful garden, pool, olive and fruit trees, is perfect for afternoon and evenings. The covered outdoor eating area is beautiful any time of the day. The location is a great balance of quiet countryside (house location) within easy distance of so many charming towns, all with great food and interesting markets. Hiking, biking, walking or touring around are all fun. Access is easy, whether within France or from elsewhere. The TGV (fast train) from Paris comes to Avignon (about 30 mins away) and the international airport at Marseille is about 45 mins by car.
Over and above all of the practical info, the hosts' attention to detail - from time of first contact to property maintenance - is significantly different from any other rental experience. Personal, prompt attention is given to the rental request, additional information happily provided, tons of useful, local information is available in the house upon arrival and the house and grounds are beautifully maintained.
This visit was my second to Oaks and Olives. I was fortunate to stay in 2012 and am happy to report that the adage "you cannot go back again" does not apply. It was even better on a return trip, which I simply did not think possible, so I am already thinking about booking again - soon!
Cannot recommend more highly."

"This home is the answer for a big family vacation! We spent our family (3 generation; 6 adults, 2 grandchildren;1 dog) at this home for four nights and had a blast. It appears the house can hold up to 16 based on sleeping quarters. The beach was clear and beautiful. The home, even though they allow dogs, was very clean and well kept. The layout of the house is conducive to "family" time. We cooked all meals; breakfast, lunch and dinner at the home except for one meal the entire trip. All necessary appliances and dinner ware were available. They have removed the hot tub off the back deck but it was not missed because it allows more sitting room to enjoy the beach. The Jacuzzi in the master bedroom was out of order but it appears to be temporary. They offer high end cable and WiFi, though, we enjoyed the beach so much it was used very little. If you are looking for a clean, well kept, homey home away from home directly on the beach....look no more. This home and carriage home is the answer. We already have two friends booking it for their beach trip."
