A diamond in the rough...

  • 5 of 5

How to begin,

Let’s start with just driving up to the property.

The home is impressive. The tall, winding driveway to the top of the hill. It had me rereading my directions. I could not be at the right place. I was.

The carport you have at your disposal is just the start.

As you come through the door, you are immediately taken aback. The furniture and amenities in the home are astounding.

If you are an Alabama fan. This is the place for you. The fan fare and history are abound. The house is charming and exquisite. The owners are so polite and accommodating. I would stay here again and again as I come back yearly for work.

This is five star. This is the unicorn of VRBO.

Thank you for the stay in your lovely home....

This property was perfect. It was more comfortable and maintained better than a hotel. We loved it.

The Bama Den #2 is in a quiet location. The parking is perfect for two vehicles. The home had everything we needed and we felt right at home throughout our stay. We will be referring ALL of our friends and family to the Bama Den when they visit Tuscaloosa. It's a home away from home.

Immaculately clean, well stocked, spacious, convenient to campus but at a distance from the hubbub. I would definitely stay here again.

Great house with very nice people to deal with. They always make you feel welcome. And the house is extremely clean and well maintained. I have already recommended it to others.

I've never left a bad review before but felt I needed to for this property. First the good things,

Lots of room, comfy beds, coffee nook, plenty of towels, toiletries and a washer & dryer. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac. This property would be great for a group of people wanting to party.

The "not so good". There are "taped notes" on doors, in kitchen, bathroom, etc. with instructions on what "not to do". The property could use updating. We woke up on day 3 and had no water (they were working on the main house and shut it off), it would have been nice if we were informed in advance. I was told it was an emergency that happened on Friday (they shut the water off to do the work on Thursday of the next week). There was a cockroach in the kitchen. When I informed the owner she told me it was because the house was in the woods and it was a "wood roach"...? I live in the woods and don't have "wood roaches". So, while there are explanations for the problems and apologies, she never offered any form of compensation other than "how & why" it happened. I use VRBO whenever I travel, and this is the ONLY time I have ever left a bad review. Would not recommend this place to anyone looking for a well kept, clean property.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that you was disappointed during your stay at "Bama Bear Den". I have been in the rental business for 7 years and this is my first negative review. On Friday I had part of my sewer line to collapse, the plumbing company cut the water off from around 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., to replace the sewer lines, No car was at the house so I assumed no one was at home , as our water lines are connected. I have a pest control company spray all of my properties monthly, the picture of the dead bug sent to me showed the pest control company is doing their job . My property is located next to the woods and the picture of the dead bug sent to me after check out was an outside bug. I take as much pride in my rental properties as I do my own home. Unfortunately, as with your own home, things arise outside our control. I feel my previous reviews speaks volumes of my property.
