Amazing property and great hosts!
Stayed at this house for a long reunion/wedding weekend in Columbia. It was perfect. Large space. Great area to entertain for breakfast in the mornings and we wish we would have had time to grill because the outdoor area is amazing as well. We spent a bit of time in the pool area too which was much appreciated by our groups especially with some of us tied up in wedding duties nearly all day.
Also - Denice was great. Super responsive and very gracious in opening her house to us. Would definitely stay again!
Thank you for staying in our home. You are a perfect guest! We would love for you to enjoy our home again soon.
Great home filled with beautiful art work and very interesting history of the home and neighborhood. Well located with restaurants and shopping in easy walking distance. The yard and pool is lovely. Felt like we were in an amazingly beautiful park. The house was well equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed our visit

We had a great experience. Denise was very hospitable and helpful. She had a bottle of red wine waiting for us with a kind note upon arrival. The house was immaculate. Very clean, organized and everything we needed. The fridge was stocked with soda and waterC snacks. The pool was spotless clean. Could not say enough good things about our stay! Highly recommend staying at this beautiful property to anyone looking for a great time in a great city. Thank you Denise!!
