Why Keith and Penny Wilken. Shannon Nelson also assist with guests. chose South Central

We fell in love with this home and decided it would be a great home to use as a vacation rental and then as our retirement home down the road. We loved the location and also it's charm.

What makes this house unique

One block from historic downtown Salida, Alpine Park, Farmer's Market, grocery store and two blocks from the public library. A short walk from the front porch and you can enjoy shopping, galleries, restaurants, hike up S mountain and dip you toes in the Arkansas River. It doesn't get much better than this!

Great house on downtown salida

  • 5 of 5

I came with my parents and kids and we had a great time. The house is large enough for a good size group and they had everything we needed. The location was as good as you could ask for as well.

The owners were easy to contact and very accommodating with special requests.

I would (and will) stay again.

Great location and house

  • 5 of 5

The kids and grandkids had a really nice time here. We were so glad to be able to house them so close to our own house and easy walk for the grandkids to do Safeway runs as it is only a block away. Very nice layout and well appointed. The kids will be back here later this year in this place. Also want to say how truly clean this place was. Hurrah! We would only suggest adding some instructions to moderate the heating system. Wonderful place. Thank you!

Wish we could have stayed!

  • 5 of 5

We were supposed to have our family Christmas trip here but my whole family got too sick to travel from California so we had to cancel at the last minute. They were great to work with. They were understanding and gave us some of our money back. I really hope we'll have the opportunity to come back and experience the cozy cottage and cute town someday.

Home away from home in Salida

  • 5 of 5

Such a clean home with plenty of space. But it still feels like a cozy home away from home. So convenient for walking to Safeway and the fun restaurants. This was our third stay there and it certainly won't be our last!

Comfortable home but maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

We loved the feel of this home and felt comfortable. The beds were very soft and felt really great after a day out. There were enough bedrooms for 4 adults to sleep in large beds and have privacy which we loved for our family getaway.

Although we loved the house, the dishwasher was not working along with the garbage disposal and the ice maker. This made us somewhat frustrated since those are the main things you use when staying somewhere for a few days (cooking meals etc.) The door to the utility room in our opinion needed to be a full door instead of a half because there was a slight smell of gas (like any utility room) coming into the kitchen while we were preparing meals.

Overall we would recommend this property but also feel like those maintenance problems need to be addressed or at least shared before we booked the property again.
