Wonderful property, great for family.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as a convenient location for our families to celebrate a late Christmas. Living in the US (Texas) and having family in Canada we chose this location to be close to the border for them to cross easily while allowing us a convenient airport to fly into (Detroit). The property was excellent. The master and three bedrooms are located upstairs which allows the family to escape the din of the festivities. The main floor is well appointed. A rec-room and exercise area located in the basement with one additional bedroom and a wet-bar area (with small cooking area and fridge). We were wonderfully surprised to find the amount of children's toys present as we had our one year old grandson visiting from Canada. The high chair and two play pens were sincerely appreciated. The kitchen is a decent size with two ovens which allowed us to prepare our late Christmas dinner for the family. This property also has a nice gas cook surface to make quick work of those food items. Nice tank less hot water heater so when all the family showered we didn't run out of hot water. I would not recommend the property for those with elderly or handicapped due to the layout of the family areas and the bedrooms but it works very very well for most others. The owners are easy to work with and you will definitely get excellent value for your dollar. We will heavily consider this property for next year's family Christmas if it is available.

Spacious and luxurious, great value for the money

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our week staying in this lovely home. We stayed and used the home as a base of operations for a visit to local family. Lots of space and an easy place to hang out, with plenty of separate common spaces for adults and kids of various ages to use without being on top of each other.

We traveled with a 3-yo and 1-yo and they both had a blast playing with the (large quantities) of age appropriate toys. When we first entered the home, our kids immediately spotted the stacks of toys and began happily scattering them all around the house.

The home is well kept and modern, with everything you need for an extended stay. Interior decoration is expertly done, with clean, modern lines and luxury quality everywhere. The art in the home is especially good for a rental, with beauty everywhere your eye could fall.

The owner is easy to work with and accommodating.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it without hesitation.

Incredible home! Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled up from SC with a family of six, with two kids in college and two elementary age for the Christmas Holiday!! This home had an incredible amount of room and bathrooms to accommodate our entire family!!! Especially with all of our kids being girls!! The home is beautiful!! Kitchen fully stocked with everything you could ever need and the entertainment systems in the home are awesome!! The location for us was fantastic as easy entry on and off I-75 will get you anywhere quickly!

The home owners were very easy to work with, flexible with a date change we had and answered all of our questions prior to and during our stay!

We would definitely recommend this home! You get a ton of beautiful luxurious space for the cost!! The per night rate was just a few dollars above the Mariott Residence Inn, which was the only hotel able to accommodate our family, and that was a small loft room with three beds and one bathroom!! That would be crazy to stay in a hotel when you can stay in this incredible home for just about the same price!! Highly recommend!! We will be back if it's available next year!!
