Wonderful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this was the cleanest home that we have ever rented...Everything was better than described. All the amenities that you could want plus more. Coffee, filters, toilet paper, paper towels to get you started were there. We of course did purchase these items and left the extra but it was so nice not to have to go to the store right away for essentials. The location is not even 5 minutes from Kinkaid Lake where we have family that camp. We used to rent the cabins from the marina but due to their decline over the last couple of years we were looking for another option and this house fit the bill. My cousin rented this home and raved about it so we decided to try and so glad we did...Hope to rent it again next year if visiting...

Very clean and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean, well kept and quiet. Suggest the owners add a clothes iron and ironing board. Had some communication issues, but called VRBO and they were able to get in touch with the owner. Nice place to stay when in town.

Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

What a nice property. The place is within walking distance of the Marina, making it perfect for fishing trips. We used it for SIU graduation. Though 14 miles or so from the University, it is an easy drive on great roads to get there. Murphysboro, just 5 or so minutes away, is a nice small town with more than a few choices for food and a great liquor store for the craft beer folks. And the big bonus is 17th Street BBQ. I have been to the Salt Lick in Driftwood, (won't wait in a one to two hours to eat anything, including Franklin's in Austin), and it compares extremely favorably. Owner Jason Spears was on top of everything, .... very responsive. All in all, a great place to stay. Should mention that it is recently remodelled, the kitchen is very well appointed and the whole place is decorated nicely. Much more so than many properties I have rented elsewhere.
