Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Scot's home. There were 4 of us and the house had plenty of room with a huge backyard with horseshoes, volleyball, cornhole set ups along with a large deck with a grill. The place was very clean, well appointed, convenient location and really had everything we needed or wanted available to us. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Great House!

Great place to stay and the owner, Scot, was exceptionally accommodating. We will definitely try to stay here each time we return to Athens!

Beautiful and comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house! We hosted a small gathering to celebrate a baby shower with friends and family. Scot had decorated the house, and couldn't have been more accommodating. The kitchen is well-stocked, the beds are comfortable, and the neighborhood and setting are beautiful. We kept the fireplace going on the chilly evenings. We recommend this house.

It was very dirty and there was no place to put our clothes. Also no Tv's in any of the bed rooms.

Needs to be cleaned!

Owner's Response: I've rented my home about 15 times to date. I have a 4.9 rating on multiple listing services. One bedroom contains a tv. Something I need to consider. I have no idea about the dirty comment. I have my house very very clean. There are two empty closets and multiple drawers available. Sorry for the experience not being up to par for the stay. I make improvements after every rental. Thanks.

Almost there- perfect rental in progress.

  • 4 of 5

Scot could not have been a nicer guy to rent from. I truly believe his rental could be a perfect home away from home when Scot completes this rental. I believe Scot is working on making this the perfect rental, but there are several unfinished projects going on around the house that should probably be completed before renting. I'm not positive but I believe this is Scots personal residence which had I known I probably wouldn't have booked. We weren't able to utilize closet spaces and personal items made it seem less like a rental and more like staying at a friends while they were out of town. Which was a little uncomfortable for us. The kitchen sink also didn't work for part of our stay which was inconvenient- but I will say Scot fairly compensated us for.

I would like to say, his home really is lovely! Great size and layout for family get togethers. We didn't utilize the backyard but it is huge and beautiful! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful.

If you're not concerned about the things listed- then you will love this property! I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend with disclosures.

When Scot finishes the renovations and purposes it fully as a rental property it will no doubt be 5/5 stars! Again, great owner, beautiful home! Almost there!
