Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is well equipped, and the homeowners are very cooperative. We needed to check in earlier and they were very accommodating.

Our granddaughter is at Samford University and the proximity to the campus was perfect! We enjoyed the backyard seating area on a beautiful fall day!

It is a peaceful, lovely home.

Good Space for a Friends Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We reserved this space for a golf weekend for 4 adults. Adequate bedroom space for each, 2.5 bathrooms to share, with useful common area space. We did not use the outdoor living area but it was good additional space. Would have been nice to have a TV in the common living space (there were TVs in many of the bedrooms, however). Very convenient access to Homewood, Lakeview, Avondale, and 5 Points areas, which we took great advantage of for meals.

Age of the property appeared consistent with the street / neighborhood. Would consider again and would recommend to others.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this house justice. It was adorable! Beds were comfortable and the a/c was nice and cold ( very important for folks from Texas lol ). House was very clean. The back patio was perfect for coffee each morning. Street is quiet and safe. Five minutes to Homewood shopping and less than 10 minutes to Downtown. Would stay here again without question!

BRAVO! WELL DONE!

  • 5 of 5

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.
