Graduation Weekend - Family House
This is the perfect house for a large family (we had 9) that wants to be together at any event at FSU. We rented it for graduation and the location was perfect!
1 mile from Walmart and Public and Trader Joe's and just about any other store you might need and a short 15-20 min drive to campus.
The owners are tremendous. They checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed multiple times and were very accommodating.
The home's layout is perfect for larger families, the outdoor area, decl, pool, fireplace, etc are the ultimate place to relax and socialize.
Large bedrooms, large beds, tons of space to gather in the kitchen and living room, two full ovens, three full well appointed bathrooms, deck , pool, grill , outdoor fireplace, and a quiet location.
WE LOVED IT!
Our stay was very enjoyable.
We were more than impressed with the property and our stay. Sheila, our host, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. She communicated very well and took all our needs into consideration. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
Wonderful sanctuary close to FSU
The neighborhood is beautiful, the location is convenient, and the house is everything we needed for a family gathering. It took us 17 minutes in moderate traffic to get to the westside of FSU and less than 20 to the airport. There is a beautiful trail that goes around a pond just steps away from the driveway. The four bedrooms are all well equipped and all the beds are really comfy.
My favorite part of the stay was waking up early and having my coffee and bagel on the pool deck. The only sounds were of cardinals chirping and a pileated woodpecker tapping on nearby trees looking to share my breakfast time. He even allowed me to take some decent pictures of him. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook meals for the whole family. The double ovens were maybe not a good idea. That's the kind of thing you don't realize you would love until you do two at the same time.
Sheila, the homeowner, was absolutely perfect. After just a few texts I felt like we were good friends. Personable, hospitable, welcoming, and most important... prompt! The few times I needed questions answered, it was immediate. I really can't sing her praises enough. Sheila's friend Umi takes care of the house and met us with the key. She is equally as sweet and showed us around.
To Sheila and Umi, our sincerest gratitude for making the weekend special. I hope we can come back soon.
Abbi and Livio,
Thank you for your wonderful review. I too felt like we got to be friends in our communication and I'm so glad you liked the birds! (That is one of Umi's and my favorite obsessions, though she's the expert and I'm the student.) The next time you come back (we'll have limited openings as we're returning to live there in May) you may bring your kids (aka Golden Doodles)...Non-shedding well-behaved pups don't count as pets. Anyway, thanks for coming and I'm so glad you guys had a good place to stay for your special occasion! Keep in touch!
