it is a beautiful up to date very comfortable and luxurious home.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, niece and I came here to have a girls get away weekend and love it. We felt like the house had everything we could possibly need. It was decorated so nice and designer approved in every way. We felt like we were living like Queens for the 2 days we were there. The salt water system pool is great so refreshing and the temperature was perfect. We definitely will plan another trip back here and recommend it to all our friends. Thank you to the owner Gail who was a big help whenever we needed it!

Relaxing place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderfully clean and prepared, earlier then anticipated. The house was fully stocked with anything you might need. The kitchen had the most cooking utensils in terms of whatever you might need to prepare anything, compared to any other place we have rented.

Gail has provided a very detailed book with directions on everything in the house, places to eat and even the nearest hospital in case of an emergency. She was easy to reach, very helpful and accommodating! Thank you for such a relaxing stay to celebrate with the family!

Perfect weekend gateway!

  • 5 of 5

The rental process went smoothly. Gail was a pleasure to work with and willingly accommodated all of our requests. I have to say that the pictures don't do the house justice. It was so much more beautiful in person! We found the house to be very spacious, modern, clean, and the decor was definitely something I hope to have in a future house. The backyard was meticulously cared for and the pool and hot tub was just the right size for our party.

We all enjoyed the house so much that we wish we owned it! Hope to return very soon!

Beautiful place and a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Based on all the positive reviews and the photos, my husband and I kind of figured this place was going to be a winner and we couldn't have been more right.

All the rooms were nice but the master bed and bath were spectacular. It's like being in a house but with the hotel amenities such as small shampoo bottles, conditioner and soap. Q-tips were provided and every bathroom had a hair dryer. The sleep number beds are super comfortable. The pool and the jacuzzi were great.

The pictures in the ad don't lie, if anything they don't do the place justice. I was pleasantly surprised with all that the kitchen had to offer. Fully stocked with plenty of spices and there was cooking oil. More pans you could ever need, a pancake grill, a waffle iron, a blender. A coffee maker and coffee was provided! Even a small crockpot, which came in handy for the cheese dip we brought. There were plenty of games to entertain us and the provided bikes came in handy to ride to a nearby convenient store.

The location is great. It's a nice, quiet neighborhood, perfect for relaxing. It's only a couple of miles from a Trader Joe's and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Gail provided all the information you could possibly need in a handy binder and for any other possible questions, she was just a text away.

We're already planning our next stay at this lovely house.
