Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home- rented for our wedding in downtown Opelika. Ended up being very convenient to our venue and made a lovely setting for photos with bridesmaids. The house is huge, clean comfortable and well stocked. Walking distance to Overall co and other downtown shops & restaurants. Wish we could have stayed longer! Would be great for a large family gathering or gameday rental with friends. Josh & Ginger were very responsive and easy to work with. Would recommend to anyone!

Old Southern Charm Just Old

  • 3 of 5

Rented this for Easter Weekend for 10 people. Owner did not send code to get in until 2 1/2 hrs before check in time , leading to much anxiety & calls to customer service. While the size & location were nice, this place needs some upkeep. Kitchen needs more & better glasses, pans, etc. painting & other repairs need to be done on porch & at various places in house. Top of one toilet tank was broken & shower curtain downstairs was badly stained. Yard had not been mowed nor front porch even swept! Going barefoot indoors led to filthy feet. Positives are clean linens, comfy matresses plus size & location, close to downtown Opelika. Not sure I'd stay here again

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, we sent the code at 9:30 before your 4 pm checkin. So sorry if that was stressful for you and your wife. We did allow you to check in several hours early though. Hope that helped your family. I'm glad you enjoyed the Southern charm of this house in beautiful downtown Opelika. We love sitting on the front porch in the evening, so I'll make sure our lawn guy knows to have it ready for future guests. Thanks for renting!

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. My youngest son was graduating from Ft Benning boot camp and we chose to stay in Opelika. There was plenty of room for our family to visit and be together. Restaurants and shops were close. If ever in this town again I would rent this house again.

Side note here: I broke my ankle a couple of days before this trip and found myself using crutches and a wheel chair. We slept in the master bedroom and I had no problem getting around.

Grand National Golf Trip

  • 4 of 5

Nice home, good value. Arrived and the home was very cold at 48 degrees. Owner resolved problem, but thermostat kept turning heat down to 60 at night. 2 block walk to nice restaurants. Short drive to golfing. Great place to stay for a small group golf outing.

Great property...Great Neighborhood...Wonderful Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Overall a GREAT VALUE for what you are getting. Ginger was wonderful and kept us well informed both before and during the trip. The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities. Deck out back was in good shape and the gas grill was a great bonus. There was a Piggly Wiggly within about 2 miles or less I would say and Wal-Mart was less than 10 minutes away. The Opelika downtown area was within walking distance and we took advantage of the fact every evening. If I had any questions I was able to text Ginger and always received a prompt and helpful reply. Thanks for a WONDERFUL STAY.

Perfect house and location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a two night stay for our 3 day golf trip to Grand National. 10-15 minute drive to the clubhouse was very easy. We had short walks to the restaurants and bars including Irish Bred on St. Patrick's day and Ma-Fias (sp).

The house was exactly how it was described and accommodated 8 guys easily. Everything we could need in the house was easily found and setup for us. Any questions I had were answered within minutes from the owner. I highly recommend this property for anyone traveling the the area!
