We could not have asked for more! Not only was the house lovely, it had every amenity we could have wanted! The home owners were quick to respond to any question I might have and I plan to stay with them again! It's nice that we can come to Birmingham to visit our daughter and have her over to cook, relax and just visit.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to call home on my extended work trip to BHM. Nice quiet street. Quaint neighborhood. Perfect location to downtown and all surrounding areas. Welcome basket with snacks and plenty of towels and other necessities awaited us upon arrival - thank you! Beautiful outdoor space! Comfy beds! Truly could not have been better. The owners were easy to communicate with and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. Thank you is not enough - we will definitely stay here again!

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This house is very charming and the view of the backyard is very tranquil with lush foliage lots of privacy and we loved the screened in sitting room for morning coffee. The house has plenty of room with a downstairs basement type bedroom which our teenage niece found very cool. There are no windows or a bathroom downstairs but if just needed for sleep it can count as a 4th bedroom..All bathrooms had modern fixtures and we liked the contemporary design. The beds were comfortable and the house cooled.nicely in the heat of summer. We would have certainly given this property 5 stars but felt we couldn't for only a couple of issues. If you are completely dependent on having reliable Wi-Fi the entire time of your stay you maybe disappointed. There is a WiFi hotspot that is prepaid and the owner Alison does offer adding more data at her cost if you let her know. However we did not have WiFi after our first night there 3 kids with movies and games. We were away most if the rest of our trip so we decided not to call owner for more WiFi. If you don't mind the Wifi limitations then all perfect. For us the only other downside was we wish there was a TV in the living room. There were TVs in every bedroom and in sitting area but as a group wanting to watch a movie together it would have been great to maybe take the large TV out of one of the bedrooms and put in common area. There are so many other positives about this property we just couldn't give it a 5 for those 2 reasons. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. As you can see we never respond to reviews for many reasons; However this one really finally made us make some changes that our guest deserve. We are having a wi-fi line put in permanently (when we have a few open days) due to the very reason you explained and we thank you for this. The TV situation ,even though there are 4-5 TV's in the home, we will be adding another in the living room, obviously when we have a few days to have installed. I hope all will appreciate these changes as this is why we appreciate kind and reasonable reviews. Next time you visit this will no longer be an issue! Take care and thank you for choosing us for your travel needs! Sincerely, A-
