Literally a HomeAway

  • 5 of 5

We walked in and it was like walking into a home away from home. I imagine this place is what the founders were thinking when they created HomeAway. We had everything we could need. And the host was amazing! He provided recommendations of places to go around town. Ask about the speakeasy in the neighborhood. Really Cool!

Great spot near the activity

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean. Great spot in Hillcrest. In the middle of everything. Liked the layout. Enough room for me or one other person. Only problem was parking. It was hard to find a spot on the street.

A lovely little house very clean and well maintained

  • 4 of 5

Ideally located in the same street as where my son lives,however, there was a building construction going on right outside our bedroom window which meant that drilling and earth moving equipment began at 7.00 am each morning

I feel that we should have been made aware of this

This is the first time we have used VRBO usually use airbandb

Convenient and clean. Great private space.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was clean and private. Convenient location with lots of restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. Parking was a challenge on occasion but we did eventually always find a spot on our block. Had a great time and would definitely rent again. Thanks
