It was nice

  • 4 of 5

Ms. Syliva and her home were really nice. The overall stay was great!. Spacious rooms, with alot of privacy. With the exception of a few minor things, we as a family really enjoyed our stay. The kids really had a ball!.. Although this was a little further than I liked, if u are just hanging with family, this is the place to do it. Thank you for the memories Ms. Syliva. I have the link, and if the Lord willing, we will be chatting again, around Thanksgiving

Perfect Athens rental for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed in this home with 9 ladies for a USTA state championship. This house exceeded all our expectations. Everyone had their own comfortable bed and even having just the two bathrooms was not an issue. We would definitely stay here again. Sylvia was very accommodating with a last minute extra night request. The home was close to all the venues we played at. Highly recommend!

Great people when it comes to planning a stay in Athens

  • 4 of 5

I needed a house that would sleep 10 of my guys that were working at UGA. Sylvia was more than accommodating to allow that many guys in her property. She worked with me when I needed another house and needed to extend my stay. Definitely, would recommend working with Sylvia. As far as the property, I never heard any complaints out of my crew so that tells me they were extremely satisfied!

Very accommodating owner, house needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

We rented the property for the Thanksgiving weekend and we were 4 families with kids. Plenty of sleeping arrangements. Location is beautiful. The owner is very responding and accommodating with all your needs, but...the house needs a lot of TLC : the carpets in all the bedrooms and on the stairs it's dirty, stained and makes you think twice before you put your bare foot down, the wood floor in the living room is buckled due to some water damaged and there was an improvisation fix...looked very bad and it was right in the middle of the living room and to top it all off, there was a lady bug infestation. The worst was at the second floor. You couldn't sleep or shower without having lady bugs falling on you. I found some in my baggage when we got home. For this kind of money, I don't think you should have this. Oh, and we had to fix one of the grill burners. We drove up there all the way from Miami and we were a little disappointed.

I would not recommend this property to anybody i know. Some people maybe have different expectations, and all the above would work or not care about them.

Owner's Response: The carpets have all been professionally cleaned and the floor has been repaired. The exterminator has resolved the ladybug situation. Thank you.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 adults and two children who stayed at the house for game day weekend. The home provided plenty of beds to sleep in and even a few went unused. We really enjoyed our stay, the owner is super nice and easily accessible, downtown Athens is a quick 15 min drive! Only FYI I would offer is alternate showers, hot water goes quickly with both running- not sure if it was a house thing or poor planning on our part for our showers. Very easy to get to, we felt right at home!! Thank you again for letting us use your home, it was a wonderful weekend for all!

Great fit for a guys weekend to see a Georgia Game

  • 4 of 5

I had called Sylvia the day before the trip to confirm everything and she emailed me the directions and notes on the property. No problems getting into the house and they had fresh cookies waiting for us, nice touch! There are so many beds in the rental, 10 total, which was more than enough for the 7 in our party. It was nice that everyone had a bed to themselves. There is a full bath upstairs and another on the main level.

We used the deck for dinner on Friday night, view of the lake is nice. Travel time into UGA game was 15 minutes.

All in all, it fit the bill!
