Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful stay. The home is fully stocked with just about everything but food. It was clean and pretty and comfortable. The front porch is what is bringing me back for the next year. Deborah and Denis are wonderful hosts. The back garden was perfect for our morning coffee and the all theatres and shopping are within walking distance. I have come to Stratford for the last 20 plus years and this was one of the best places that I have found so far. It was so nice to have a space where all four of us could gather and catch up with each other and enjoy the privacy that this setting affords you. I am planning our trip for 2014 and looking forward to returning. If you really enjoy this place be certain to book the next year before you leave. It is becoming very popular!

Wonderful house with great owners

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house for a week for the last three summers and have reserved for next summer as well. It is extremely well-equipped, comfortable, and very well-located. There is private parking for two cars, which is extremely convenient. The central air-conditioning is great and the new wifi they installed has a very strong signal. One can walk to all four Stratford Festival theaters easily, as well as the lovely Shakespeare Garden by the river. The owners, Debra and Denis, live right next door and are really delightful. Very kind and helpful if there is any problem. Stay here if you can.

far beyond your expectations

  • 5 of 5

If there were 6 stars we would assign this experience a "once in a lifetime, beyond belief" rating. The owners were amazing to work with, left us to ourselves but made themselves available to us if we needed it (for example, when we couldn't find the corkscrew!). They even swept the snow off our car in the mornings! The house is out of a dream magazine-it is lovely, the decor is stunning, the location is excellent. Yet it feels like a home, albeit a well appointed one. We felt very relaxed and comfortable there. The bedding is luxuriant, the TV tucked away upstairs in a spare room. We stayed over Christmas and had everything to cook a Turkey dinner, which is pretty amazing when you consider the dishes, pans, utensils, etc. For 2 or 4 people this is an excellent choice. The location is fantastic, right behind the downtown street facing the beautiful library. The little garden in the back is tucked away and private. And the best part of all is the house itself. It is victorian but completely renovated tastefully and in keeping with the best character of an old house. This is an excellent choice for your vacation!

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Verandah for a week. Without hesitation, I can say this was THE BEST VRBO we have ever stayed in. Debra and Denis have done an amazing job with this home. We felt welcome, comfortable, and, at the end of our week, we didn't want to go! They have gone out of their way to provide the best of everything. The kitchen is stocked. The linens are cozy and numerous. It is CLEAN! My husband had to work while we were there and he loved the desk set-up along with access to high-speed internet through a wi-fi connection. This place is as inspiring as the rest of Stratford. While there, the shutterbug in me went crazy taking photos of the surrounding garden and I was able to get writing done for a book I am working on. It is truly a sanctuary. With all the lovely art and knick knacks, it will take you a week to absorb how much love and care has gone into this home. Even without stopping to look at all the special touches, it is easy to *feel* it because it surrounds you and makes you feel blessed. Truly a special place. Now, add to all of that the fact that this VRBO is within walking distance of pretty much every theater, restaurant, and attraction in Stratford--it just doesn't get any better. We were sad to leave, heartbroken, really, and are already planning our next trip there.
