Amazing place.

  • 5 of 5

We felt really priviledged to stay in this lovely house.

I am originally from Paris, France and this house reminded me of the type of houses one can see on the bank of "La Seine" in the suburbs of Paris.

We loved the delicateness of the decoration. Every piece of furtuniture seems to have a purpose. Every room an identity. The red leaves outside made the neighborhood even more special.

Thank you for having us!

Nice quiet home, glad it worked out

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice home, well appointed, in a nice quiet neighborhood. The TVs were a challenge, in that they were primarily in the bedrooms and not a living area except one on the screened in porch.

The big challenge was communications with the owner. I received no returned email from them until the week of the stay, with the actual instructions for our stay not arriving until the morning of our check in, when we were already on a plane headed there. Neither of the phone numbers they have listed received voicemails. So glad it worked out, but know that you may not hear from the owners much.

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated home that would be perfect for anyone who wanted a comfortable living space. It would work for a couple up to a family with enough space that no one feels crowded. A great alternative to the usual hotel option!

Quaint, Chic, and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

I went here for my sister's bachelorette weekend. This house is absolutely beautiful and the owners are so friendly. We had snacks and a welcome card waiting for us as well as all of our needs being able to be met. We cooked about half of our meals at the home and we had everything we needed. The only downfall is that the driveway is a bit steep. We all loved the house, the space, and the overall ambiance of the house! We all wished we actually had a house like this! If we are ever in Birmingham, we are definitely going to stay here again!
