Perfect, homey, charming

  • 5 of 5

This rental was like stepping into your home. My teenage girls were in love with it. With two decks and a florida room plus comfy living room, we could spread out, but still be close. You can ask for no better location. Less than a mile from the zoo and within two of blocks of Mountain Brook made the perfect locale for restful weekend. And I can't leave out that Molly allows pets.

Birmingham is the spot where my family meet because it halfway between us. We have allows stayed in a hotel, but now we have a much better place to gather.

Thank you, Molly for allowing us to stay in you perfectly charming home. We hope to be able to stay again.

Character and Cobwebs

  • 4 of 5

The location is absolutely fantastic. The house itself is quaint and comfortable, but very quirky in a number of ways. There are quite a lot of light switches that don't do anything. We recommend bringing a couple of power strips to increase electrical outlet capacity for our many devices. Also, bring a toaster if you will need one. Water pressure and hot water capacity were great. Two of the three beds were questionable. Sitting areas were very comfortable, but there were no lights in back, so an electric lantern might come in handy. Air conditioner worked fine, but was a bit loud and ran nearly constant. Floor are interestingly uneven, and we really didn't mind the squeaks.

Overall, it was a great, casual place for our casual family. If you are a very picky person, this probably isn't the property for you. It's not the Ritz and doesn't claim to be. If you're looking for a nice pad to hang out with friend and family and not get uptight about the details, this is a great find.

If you don't know how to park a car, let someone else put the vehicle in the driveway. It's steep for one car, and cramped for two.

Mollie, the owner, answered all our questions in a timely manner and we would rent the place again in a heartbeat.

Cute, convenient, but could be cleaner/in better condition

  • 3 of 5

This house's location and set up worked well for our family of 3 generations staying in Birmingham for Samford University's graduation. While the house had a charming decor, some furniture was literally falling apart and the air return outside the bedrooms was clogged with dust/dirt. Molly was a good communicator and flexible.
