Beautiful home. Large, yet cozy & inviting.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very well stocked with the kitchen tools to accommodate our large party. We appreciated how private the rooms were, yet how open the main communal area was. Wendy was very easy to work with and the entire process, from setting up the reservation, all the way to finishing our trip was easy and pleasant. We would be happy to make another reservation here in the future, and highly recommend this property.

Excellent for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 19 adults and 2 children, and we really enjoyed exploring all the floors and rooms, lounging on the balcony, and listening to music in the living room. Primarily we were thrilled to be able to stay all together rather than renting several small houses that may not be near each other. We had a couple of extra people who didn't have a bedroom, so the roll-away beds were particularly useful for us. We also found the kitchen to be extraordinarily well-stocked - above and beyond what you typically find in a rental. Wendy was easy to communicate with, and we had a wonderful time renting this house!

I do want to make a suggestion for future renters, however. Sound travels extremely well through the house, and we did not think about that when we chose our bedrooms. If members in your group stay up late, the ones who go to bed early should pick the rooms that are as far away from the common area as possible, 3rd or 4th floor ideally. 2nd floor was definitely not far away enough. Just a tip!

Thank you for hosting our team for the MLK tournament. Our team had finals the same week of the tournament and all the space in the home gave them an opportunity to study and have the privacy they needed. Beautiful home, thank you.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are 3 generations that spent the holiday together, and it was wonderful! There was plenty of room to gather as a family, without feeling crowded. Also plenty of space to slip away for quiet time or a nap. Loved having the extra refrigerator and cooking surfaces, as well as a table large enough to eat our meals together. Holiday decorations were a special touch, and added to our Christmas magic. We loved our time there!

Great for a Large Group!

  • 5 of 5

This place is was perfect for our group of 16 people. There is a large living room, dining room and deck area for entertaining and games. There are plenty of dishes, fridge space, coffee, etc. so we didn't have to make any extra trips to the store. Almost each person had their own bed and there were plenty of bathrooms so people weren't waiting to take a shower. The double laundry units also came in handy for us after a day of paintball. Wendy made things very easy for checking in and outlining our responsibilities within the house!
