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-

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We visited Birmingham to attend a graduation ceremony at Samford Univ. This home is very conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood with easy access. Everything we needed for our 5 day stay was available and the owners were very responsive, attentive and professional. The backyard was a highlight, we sat at the patio and enjoyed the birds, setting, and peaceful conversation.

Weekend golf trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend golf trip and it was a very nice home. Plenty of room, clean, and the neighborhood felt safe. We were a short uber ride to everything we wanted to do in Birmingham. Would stay here again.

Amazing Home!

  • 4 of 5

I would gladly recommend this place to anyone going to Birmingham. The house has several large bedrooms including a master with private bath and a bedroom with a half bath. It is more than spacious and has all the amenities (washer and dryer included). The backyard has a beautiful seating area and the woods allowed us to spend our mornings sipping coffee and watching more birds than I could count. I thought this home was the cats pajamas.

My only complaint, and it's a minor one, is that Alison can't get a hold of you right away due to her job. She was very responsive and within a reasonable time, it just wasn't instantaneous. So if you're the type of traveler that has lots of questions and is constantly texting the owners, this might not be the place for you, for everyone else, this place is Perfect. Strongly recommended.
