Older home perfect for our family

  • 4 of 5

This was our first experience in renting a vacation home for our family of 10. With a 6 yr old, 2 three year olds and an 11 month old having a one story home was ideal. The two living areas was perfect as we set one up for the little ones to play in with their toys and the adults had the other room. Having a dining room for all 10 of us to eat together was wonderful. We ate breakfast and grilled supper every day and ate out for lunch. The house was in a good location. It was out of Atlanta but close enough that we went in to Atlanta everyday without a problem (zoo, aquarium, etc.) Coming back each day after our outing to a swimming pool was a huge hit with the children and adults as we could grill, swim and be together. The tennis court was nice even though we really did not use it much. We were a little disappointed to find that the property was on an incline and there was really no flat place to throw baseball or kick ball without chasing a ball down to the street. Having a basketball goal was nice.

As I mentioned, it is an older house so I will point out a few things that we noticed. The floors were not very clean in the kitchen. (having a crawling baby tells all) The water pressure was not the best and the hot water kept fading in and out while taking a shower. The pool needed a little more cleaning but the owner was working on it. The owner was at the house when we checked in and filled us in on the pool.

The house was well stocked with paper products, cleaning supplies, towels, pool towels and toys, and plenty of outdoor sitting. We would have spent even more time outside if it hadn't been so hot. Overall it was a great experience for our family and we are already looking to do this type of vacation again in another city. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Absolutely perfect for my family

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe how kind and gracious the owner, Mr. Evans, has been towards me and my family during the rental process. After reading several reviews I was well prepared as to what to expect regarding this property. We definitely used the pool area, which was enjoyed by both young and old as well as the tennis court. My family definitely felt comfortable being in an area that was not congested by traffic or noise. Everyone who walked in took a small tour of the home and was amazed by the square footage and to be able to do different things and not feel so crowded. The master bedroom was my favorite room with its large walking closet, vanity area and bathroom, as well as the French doors leading outside to the tennis court. The kitchen was fully stocked the different seasonings and cookware (no need to pack extra). Again absolutely perfect home to host a family reunion.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Mr. Evans property for a week. We were having our Family Gathering in ATL . We had other family members that stayed in a nearby hotel and the property was the perfect location. The house is huge! My 81 y/o mother also stayed in the house with us and she was very impressed. She uses a walker and found it very easy to get around in the house. She loved the fact that she was able to spend a week with all of her grown children in one house at the same time. We were able to enjoy a very quiet and peaceful area yet able to go into Atlanta to do some sightseeing when we wanted to. Mr. Evans left us a very generous care package upon our arrival which we greatly appreciated. We liked that the majority of the bedrooms were at one end of the house and we were able to close the door to that area when we had a couple of our events at the house. Our family members that came to the house for the events loved the house also. The house is very well stocked with anything you can think of; everything from cleaning supplies, toiletry items and loads of kitchen items. There was also loads of spices and other items in the pantry. I had bought my own crockpot with me and was very surprised to see there was one already there! The kids enjoyed the pool and pool toys as well as children's games that were there. The grounds are beautiful also with all of the trees and greenery. Mr. Evans was easy to contact for questions that I had during our stay. Even before our arrival, Mr.Evans always promptly responded to any questions that I had. We are going to be renting Mr. Evan's property again the next time we come to Atlanta. We had a wonderful time and some of my family are still talking about how much they enjoyed the property. Thank you again Mr Evans!

The property is secluded and beautiful and the home offers full amenities and comfort.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful and secluded property and comfort for a small army, the house is a little on the funky side. Uneven flooring joints, stained patio windows, stonework coming loose on the patio, sunken living room steps without any hand rails (caused a fall for an older woman), and rather poor interior painting. All this aside, we were very comfortable and enjoyed the beauty and privacy.

Owner's Response: As our guest said, the house is beautiful, comfortable and secluded for privacy. The house was built in the '70s and added to over time. The flow between rooms is level and there is a little settling around the stone walls for the kitchen….not something that would create any kind of problem. In the sunken living room the steps into the room are very, very wide (about 10 feet long with two 5 inch steps) and are easily seen with a portion blocked by antique trunks, a carpet at the foot of the steps coming from the dining room and a large recliner at the steps coming from the front hallway. (I wanted to include a photo of the steps to illustrate the setting but this messaging prevents it from being inserted in the text.) We will add some additional items to help define the area even more which may include handrails. The patio outside this room is flagstone. The mortar around one of the stones began to come loose so we put an orange safety cone there for these guests to make sure they would be aware of that issue. It is scheduled to be repaired next week. We do appreciate your feedback and we use it to make our place even better for the next guests. Thanks.
