About Demi A.

We are family business and rent our home to friends, family, and others ( a lot of silent auction charity events) so they can enjoy and spend quality relationship time, like we do, with their family, friends or business colleagues in relaxing environment. A great place to just unwind and take in nature.

Demi A. purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Demi A. chose Illinois

We fell in love with the area and wanted to build our family memories in a great place that has so much to offer. It is so close to the Inn, walking trails, and general store. Kids love it. You need to go horseback riding!

What makes this townhome unique

Our home is cared for with love and appreciation of the natural beauty around it. Stay with us and enjoy all that Galena has to offer… will not be disappointed. My family will guarantee it:). We support several charities by donating our home for several silent auctions to raise money for several great causes. We just got a new stainless steel fridge and stove, why not!

Guestbook comments from the owner

There was so much to do with the access to the Owners Club. The pool was very nice and the game room and snack bar was also a bonus. We loved our stay and will definitely itself return.

Very scenic property

  • 4 of 5

The resort was very scenic and it was nice to have a pool on the grounds. The resort is VERY large so you need a car to go wherever you want. It was about 5 miles out of town as well. The villa was very comfortable for the 6 of us and a great option for 2 small families.

The resort golf villa could not have been better for our short anniversary vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon after touring the town of Galena. The drive into the resort was beautiful with the views of the hillside. The condo instructions were easy to follow and we unpacked and immediately went for a walk on the trails. As for the condo itself, it worked very well for two people just wanting to get away. The decor was nice, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was a plus. The only two things I would point out is, no wifi and the water pressure is a little high in the showers, which I think others have mentioned. No worries though, we're here to relax and I could use a good shower massage every so often. Also, the Owner's Club is amazing. It has free WiFi, 3 pools, a basketball court, and an indoor rec area serving food. Lastly, we ate at the restaurant inside the General Clubhouse and the food along with the views were perfect.

Overall, this condo met and exceeded expectations and I'm glad we chose to stay here. It made our Galena experience much more enjoyable and we'll most likely be coming back in the future.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo! It was perfect for us and our two grandchildren for the weekend. The condo was spotless, and had everything you would need for a stay away from home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen nicely stocked, and the place felt very roomy. With unusually warm weather for February, we enjoyed eating on the deck outside. Of course our grandchildren enjoyed swimming in the lovely pool at the Owner's Club. The location is really perfect for a visit to Galena! Finally, Demetra is so helpful and prompt in communicating all the necessary arrangements. Overall a great experience!
