Quiet and clean

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice spot close to water. The home was extremely clean. The only reservation to share was the floor needs to be secured to prevent creaking with every step at night. Owner was good communicator. Excellent wifi.

We spent a lot of then using the park across the street. This property was well maintained and in a quiet neighborhood. It was 5 minutes from Camp Johnson so we could easily pick up our Marine. We would use this property again.

Great place to celebrate

  • 4 of 5

I was in town celebrating 2 High School graduations. I had multiple family members over for BBQs. I hadn't seen many in a while so it was really nice. The pond is so close and the area was just peaceful. If I had one complaint, it would be not having a grill. My cousin drove his over, so it all worked out. The owner came across very respectful and willing to work with you with any issues one may have. I would recommend this to friends and I'd stay again.

Owner's Response: First of all I would like to thank VRBO for allowing owner's response because I have had so many WONDERFUL GUEST to stay over the almost 2 years. This family was here Mother's Day Weekend for their daughter's graduation and for a birthday as well. They took such good care of The Octavia House. They left everything in place, put all that was needed into outside containers and they even did some of the housekeepers details which she certainly appreciated. I would certainly welcome them to stay again and I want to Thank them again for chosing The Octavia House for their vacation needs!
