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!

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!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us, walk to downtown Opelika for great restaurants, and RTJ was easy drive.

Washer/dryer was a lifesaver as traveling with elderly parent always has its challenges!

Owners were most accommodating to our family!

Charming and Spacious Southern Home Kept By Wonderful Property Managers

  • 5 of 5

Came to the home to spend the holiday season with family. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the home, particularly the way it comfortably slept 6 people - the downstairs contains two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the upstairs is almost a mini apartment with 4 beds and a full bathroom. I particularly enjoyed hanging out on the front porch with a warm cup of coffee. Definitely would recommend for anyone interested in staying in the area.

Loved this Home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at this gem. My son had a soccer tournament in Columbus GA over three days and this was FAR better than staying in a hotel! It was a short drive to and from and being able to relax in a beautiful home, cook dinner and breakfast was such a treat. We walked to downtown for pizza at Ma Fia's on our last night. Great food - great ending. Josh and Ginger were so communicative and easy to work with! I appreciate them letting us come in earlier than planned to drop groceries and then head to the field. I will continuously try airbnb before hotels for extended visits.
