Wonderful home for large gathering

  • 5 of 5

This was a late rental in order for the family to attend military ceremonies at Fort Benning GA in October 2016. The home was as described and perfect for our large family group. We were able to prepare all our meals with the well stocked kitchen. The town is also very nice with lots of local restaurants.

Great stay, love having enough room for moving around.

  • 4 of 5

There are some safety issues that need to be addressed, the railing on the left side of stairs is very loose, several chairs were so loose they couldn't be sat on. The sheets upstairs looked and felt as old as the house, one had a 4 inch hole. The towels

were wonderful the sheets need to look as fresh and cleaned. I question if the loft room had even had the sheets changed. The kitchen was spacious so we could be together, the dining room was terrific except the seat bottoms of the chairs should have been screwed on. I would hate to see a law suit over these issues when someone gets hurt.

Owner's Response: Hi Carole, my husband secured the chairs and stairwell items that you mentioned. Thanks for your feedback. Maybe it's time to get new sheets :) They are fairly new, but may be showing some wear due to frequent washing in between guests. I'm so glad you enjoyed the house, and we appreciate you staying with us. Thanks again. Ginger

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.
