Strict: 50% refund up until 30 days prior to arrival.

For a 50% refund, cancellation must be made 30 full days prior to listing's local check in time. If the guest cancels less than 30 days in advance, the nights not spent are not refunded. If the guest arrives and decides to leave early, the nights not spent are not refunded.

We like to try and accommodate changing schedules and work with our guests. So what we typically like to do in the case of a cancellation request, when request is at least 30 days out, is refund 50%, and then make your dates available. In the case of less than 30 days out, we can still make your dates available, just not issue the 50% up front refund. Then if we are able to book your dates with another guest we can issue you the difference minus the credit card booking (2.39%) and chargeback processing (2.39%) fees, loss of rent due to replacement booking (if there is any loss and no credit if there is a gain in rent), and a one-time $50 cancellation charge.

Since our place is so popular, and if the cancellation request is far enough out, it is usually not an issue to re-book your dates to someone else.

We do require guests to provide a non-channel specific email, billing address , a copy of your driver's license, a copy of the credit card you used to book, and sign a standard rental contract electronically. Please inquire prior to booking to get the details.

Beautiful home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family vacation with adults and young children. The kids loved the pool, arcade, playground, and huge yard to play in. We loved the hot tub and spacious accommodations. Because there was so much to do, we found there was rarely a need to leave. The hosts were helpful and kind.

If I am going to pay that much money to stay at a place then I want privacy whether it be in hot tub or pool-Owners need a different entrance. House was nice but would have never rented had I known that it wasn't private.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you had that experience and did not understand that our entrance was through the indoor pool area, as was explained. However, we appreciate your feedback and, because of that, have changed our entrance to fix that situation. The entrance is totally separate from any common area. Also, regarding the cost, our house is below market price, but with just 2 people staying in our large 4 bedroom home, it would naturally be more expensive than staying in a 1 bedroom villa

Lots to do at the house, but owners unorganized and unprofessional

  • 2 of 5

We did not have a great experience with this rental. The house was great for our family vacation, but dealing with the owners was very frustrating.


Lots to do at the house which is mostly as advertised. There is an indoor pool which is bigger than the pictures make it look. There is a great arcade, but some of the games are broken. There are a ton of sleeping accommodations and the bathrooms are nice.


The owners don't know how to run a professional rental business. It was a disaster. They showed up to clean the place the day before we were checking out because they wanted us to pay outside of VRBO for one night. The owner called to apologize when they realized it was their mistake. They never sent us any welcome information or door code until we texted them the night prior to check in. The door code didn't work when we checked in. I will note that we checked in early. After asking for early check in a month and a half in advance, they were still doing work around the house until 4pm when we were the first people staying in over a month and a half. The nicer washer/dryer downstairs wasn't even hooked up.

The owners basically live in the house when it's not rented. When they have renters, they stay in a huge RV that is almost touching the house. It is literally right outside your bedroom window. If you want privacy, don't stay here!

The house is split level so it is not a typical upstairs and not how it sounds in the listing.

We weren't able to use the hot tub the first night because it was too chlorinated and burned our eyes and skin. Then, the owners were over trying to fix it for a long time while we were home (after we had been gone from the house for 5 hours).

It is not in an upscale area, but there are a lot of big box stores. FYI - The traffic going into Nashville was pretty bad each time we went so while the house is 25 minutes away, it may take a lot longer to get downtown.

Basic things you would expect aren’t provided…there are no wine glasses, no scissors, no salt and pepper, no cooking spray. For karaoke, we could only find one CD. Popcorn Kernels are not provided for the Popcorn Machine.

Beware that all the beds are very high so if you have older people, it might be tough.

Owner's Response: We also did not have a good experience with these guests. The week before they were to come, they sent harsh emails demanding that they be able to check in early. It got so bad, we called to inform them that we would need to cancel their reservation because of their attitude. The mistake we made was relenting and allowing them to talk us out of cancelling their reservation. Please look at all the other reviews if you have concerns about our professionalism or positive interaction with our guests. As far as the comment about broken games, we did have 2 newly delivered games that needed repair but we had 7 extra games on hand not even advertised. Instead of addressing each of the other negative comments, they are just untrue, unfounded and ridiculous. What we have learned is that a guest who demonstrates a nasty attitude even before coming is someone we should not allow to come & experiendce our wonderful property. If you have any doubts, please look at the reviews given by other guests. In the last two months we took the opportunity to repaint the whole house and replace with all new hardwood floors - which we were just finishing up the week that these guests came.

Wonderful home for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This home is super cozy. It is a large home so normally the temperature is not well controlled but we found the temperature in the home was always just right. We had 6 adults with us and not everyone was a couple so it was wonderful to each have our own bed and room. The games were also fun to act like a kid again. The owners are really sweet and stay in touch to be sure everything is working great but never close enough to feel like you don't have privacy. Thank you so much, We will be back

Awesome house!

  • 4 of 5

Deers were in front yard... awesome yard! I enjoyed my time with my friends and family for my 50th birthday! It was a three night stay. There were six of us and we all had plenty of room. The arcade and jukebox were a total blast!!!

Great backyard... Wish we could have had a week here. I would have done 5 stars but the downside is it was a little further from downtown then expected. The traffic was part of the problem. Very comfortable and manager of property was very helpful! Thank you!!
