Excellent Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I used Chattanooga as our base for a couple of days while enjoying the total eclipse in Spring City, TN. This rental was perfect for our needs. It's a great location, very accessible to the interstate. However, once you are perched on the side of that lovely ridge, the interstate seems a world away because this apartment is in a beautiful setting and a great neighborhood.

The house is on a steep grade, so even though this is actually a "basement apartment," you are on ground level in the rear of the house with plenty of light and windows, including sliding glass doors looking out on a patio and a lovely view beyond. The owners live "upstairs," which is the ground level in the front of the house. The apartment is immaculately clean, very comfortable with plenty of room, and well appointed with most anything you might need. The check-in process was easy, and our hosts, Mark and Nancy, were delightful. They have developed a lovely "home-place" through their years of living at this house, and I appreciate them sharing with others as a rental.

As as added note, even though this rental is in a great residential neighborhood, it is also very close to adequate commercial space for gas or groceries or restaurants, and you do not have to get back on the Interstate to find these things. Perfect spot, great hosts...all around an excellent rental experience.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING AND VERY QUITE

  • 4 of 5

THIS WAS MY WIFE AND MYSELF FIRST STAY IN A RENTAL HOME. WE HAVE ALWAYS STAYED IN A HOTEL. MY PREFERENCE AFTER STAYING AT MARK AND NANCY'S HOME WOULD NOW BE RENTAL HOMES. UNFORTUNATELY, WE WERE UNABLE TO MEET MARK HOWEVER, NANCY CERTAINLY MADE UP FOR THAT WITH HER GENEROUS SPIRIT AND WONDERFUL HOSPITALITY. WE HAD A WONDERFUL STAY AND WOULD CERTAINLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WHOM MAY ASK.

Spacious, clean apartment close to all things Chattanooga

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our week-long stay in this lovely basement apartment when we arrived in Chattanooga for the half Ironman World Championships. We had our two triathlon bikes with us, and we thoroughly appreciated the space that allowed us to keep the boxes outside and the bikes (clean, of course) safely inside. This apartment is fully furnished and has plenty of room for two or a family of upwards of 6. While we did eat out several times, we enjoyed meals we made in the kitchen, even including fresh vegetables from Nancy and Mark's garden. At night, we slept well in the comfortable bed and the quiet atmosphere. If and when we return to Chattanooga, we will definitely check the availability of this VRBO first. Thank you for an enjoyable visit!

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Nancy are very nice host. The house was extremely clean the view was awesome. Was close to everything that I wanted. I pulled a Trailer turning around was a little hectic but other than that it was an awesome place to stay. Beats a hotel hands-down any day. I would stay there again 8/25 to 8/29/17 thanks Ted 🌴�👍�🏼�🌴�
