My stay at Galena Territory
Our recent stay was wonderful. The view was spectacular. The owner was quick to respond to any questions I had. Close to downtown Galena with taxi service available.
Great Family Getaway
My husband, myself and our 10yr old daughter and 8 yr old son shared this house with our friends and their 2yr old son. The home was clean and well-appointed. Downtown Galena was easily accessible, and the association pizza restaurant and pool were a hit. They even had bouncy houses set up for the kids. I would definitely recommend this house for families!
Property has beautiful views and really great space for families and is well kept. Owners are wonderful to work with. We have found lots of fun restaurants and golfing in the area. Peace and quiet:)!
You have been wonderful guests. We hope you share our house again in the future. You are always welcome. Celeste
We had a great time! The view is beautiful! We can’t wait to come back.
While our guests left the house in great condition, they were so late in leaving that we are being charged extra by the housekeeper.
We were clear that guests could arrive anytime after 3:00 pm on Friday. We were clear that guests must be gone by 10:00 am on Sunday.
I am not sure what more we could do to be clearer. We wish there had been a better leave taking.
Great view and very spacious for us!
We really liked the space and views of this property. It was very quaint and a great venue to relax at. Kitchen had everything we needed and there were more than enough places to sleep We thought the property wasn't as clean as we would've liked it to be. It was dusty with cobwebs and the mirrors were splattered. The smell in the basement was not very pleasant either. The shower in the basement bathroom wouldn't close all the way and leaked on the floor. This wouldn't have been a big deal, but we were only allowed one towel and washcloth per person for three days. I would've brought extras had I known.
We are happy that the renter liked the space and the views. We apologize for any disappointments.
This is our family vacation house. We had been there five days earlier and did not have any problems with smells or splattered mirrors. Guests are provided a towel, wash cloth and hand towel for each bed. There should have been 8 sets in the house with 6 guests. We are not a hotel and if guests need to clean towels everyday, there is a laundry room with detergent etc. available in the lower level.
We have noticed problems with VRBO not returning deposits quickly. That was the case here. It is too bad that the overall experience suffers because of VRBO HomeAway delays.
great location and home
We loved everything about it. Fabulous views. Accommodations fit our needs perfectly. Owners very nice and helpful to work with.
