What we hear from many guest; 'It's kinda like a resort'.

Your home away from home in Madison/Huntsville is splendid. Step into the foyer and feel the energy of soaring ceilings, chandler and curved stair case. To your left, an elegant yet inviting dining room. To the right, an office suitable for closing a million dollar deal. Now, move through the foyer into a relaxing sunken den with a 65' HD flat screen and bamboo flooring. In the kitchen and eating areas you will enjoy black granite, stainless steel appliances, 28 bottle wine cooler, state of the art sink with touch technology and stone flooring. Kitchen is always well stocked with cooking essentials, oils, spices etc. Just off of the kitchen is the huge master bedroom with double glass doors opening to the patio, 52' HD flat screen and master bath, very well appointed with great attention to comfort. The master bath has a new stone/tile his and hers shower. The shower heads are over sized rain heads and the granite vanity has two vessels with water fall faucets. Upstairs; there are three more bedrooms, freshly painted and decorated. The baths have newly placed granite with double vessels. At the end of the hall, open the door to your very own disco-tech complete with a dance floor, disco ball, stereo, cd’s, wet bar, refrigerator and a completely mirrored wall (or exercise/play/dance). The back yard; (wood fence, very private). Enjoy the pool (18 by 40+) with chairs, tables, stone patio (550 sq ft) with built in grill, large umbrellas, lots and lots of concrete. Pool remains open year round.

Traveling with the motorhome? Within the fenced yard, there is an 80 x 12' concrete motorhome pad with electrical and water.

Great holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very large spacious house with comfortable furnishings. Easily accommodated six adults. Hosted family Christmas dinner for 20. Great kitchen with everything we needed for preparing and hosting dinner. Al and Candy were great responding to all of my concerns before arriving and had things set up for us to easily host all of our wonderful family parties. They made this gathering possible and everyone was impressed not only with the dinners but with the accommodations. The bonus room was terrific place for the kids to play while the adults were talking. Our only regret was that it was too cold to enjoy the pool at Christmas. Can’t wait to come back when it’s warm!

Owner's Response: Thank you Loretta and family. You were wonderful to work with and we are so glad that our place could accommodate you. You were quite helpful yourself, as at Christmas, our handyman was not available. Our cleaning crew was delighted with the care you all took; thank you. We spend a few months there each year and I can tell you, the home is a lot more fun with 20 or so family and friends than with just the two of us. Al and Candy

Amazing Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

For the past 10 - 15 years our family has a group vacation - I am talking all my kids, their kids, my brother and sister and their families and my parents - anyone who can, shows up or wishes they had when the pictures come out. We get together the week prior to July 4th or Labor Day in different cities each year. This year we all met in Huntsville, Alabama and I rented a house from Al & Candy Ishee. This was the best house we have rented yet and one that I highly recommend to anyone with a family planning on staying the Hunstville/Madison, Alabama area. Al was my main contact and was very accommodating, thorough on house instructions, and respectful of our family time and needs. The area has a lot of family centered attractions and on the days we wanted to relax, the house with a pool was a life saver. THANKS Al for such a grand vacation.

Owner's Response: Jennimarie and family, it was indeed a delight to have everyone. I was fortunate to have briefly met most of your group. You are blessed to have such a great family. You nearly brought tears to Candy's eyes (good ones) when she did a property walk-through. You left us and such great shape, especially with another family arriving in just a few hours. Thank you! Thank you! Al and Candy

Outstanding Oakhurst

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at Al & Candy's!

The property was amazing; had everything we could imagine.

Al made sure we were all set up and was available if needed.

The location was close to all amenities yet situated in a quiet subdivision.

We slept 7 comfortably and hosted wedding parties for 25+.

Beautiful home and yard!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It was my team's third time staying at this house, and it keeps getting better every year! The updates to the bathroom and kitchen are gorgeous and made it so easy for our team to stay here. The bathrooms all have two sinks and the new shower in the master bathroom is huge. The kitchen has great new appliances and the new dining table is perfect. We had our entire team and family over for dinner at the house and easily accommodated all of us, not to mention how much fun it was getting to relax by the pool. The house is so close to stores/restaurants and is only 15 minutes away from downtown Huntsville. Al and Candy are so nice to work with and we really can't thank them enough for sharing their beautiful place with us. We can't wait to be back!
