Guestbook comments from the owner

The house has great space and easily accommodated our large group. The Kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked with essentials and extras. We had plenty of common areas and were able to enjoy the outdoor spaces, too. The kids loved the scooters, basketball goal, trampoline, and pool area. This place is a great house for a large group!

Not impressed!

  • 2 of 5

We were not impressed with the property. The dishwasher needed to be replaced, because it didn't work. The pool had know chlorine in it when we arrived. Also they had a washer that needed to be repaired because the lid didn't lock on it.

Owner's Response: Hi Dee, I'm surprised to hear this. The dishwasher only needed a new part, but we purchased a brand new one, so you would have it during your stay. My husband checked the washer during your stay, and someone in your group had turned off the spin cycle. He corrected it very quickly. The pool always has chlorine in it before guests arrive. During your stay, my husband took a pool sample to our pool company to determine if additional chemicals were needed and brought it back immediately. I hope the grandkids enjoyed the list of activities we put together for them in the surrounding area. Thanks for making the trip from Indiana to Highpoint Estate! We enjoyed having your family.

GREATLY EXCEEDS my expectations!!!!! AMAZING HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't express our gratitude for Ginger and her family for offering this AMAZING HOME! To be quite honest, I was sketchy because I thought to myself, there's no way a home like this would have such a good rate, but lo and behold, it was WORTH more than what we paid and me and my family were able to enjoy this BEAUTIFUL home! Our purpose for our visit was to attend my brothers graduation from basic training on Ft. Benning and also to be here to witness his union with his beautiful wife. This home made it so perfect for my family to be together especially coming from Hawaii, we enjoyed the land which was HUGE as well! It was just SO beautiful, I can't get over it. All my family here in Hawaii loved it as well as we shared it with everyone here. Best believe, we will know EXACTLY where to go if we're ever in the area!! Another thing I want to point out, Ft. Benning is about 40min away and although there were homes in Columbus, none were as beautiful as this. It was WORTH the drive! WE LOOOOOOOOOOOVED IT!!!! Their washer and dryer were top of the line, all the appliances were. They had a trampoline, basketball area, tree swing, campfire place we definitely took advantage of. And as cold as it was, my sister and my brothers younger brother in law enjoyed the pool lol. The master bedroom was just BEAUTIFUL! Bigger than most apartments here in Hawaii. Another great thing about this place was our amazing HOST! Ginger was always VERY responsive and helped with things that didn't even pertain to the home like places around the area we would like to see and all. But the home itself was more than enough for us to explore that we were on the land most of our time there enjoying the home and all that come with it. It was an amazing experience and BEAUTIFUL home that I would actually plan a trip in the area JUST to stay in this home again. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for offering such a beautiful home!!
