Great property! Plenty of room for families!
This house was perfect for my family's trip tp Athens! There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms so that we didn't feel cramped or on top of each other. It was clean and outside was well-maintained. We loved the outside porch overlooking Georgia's stadium! We ate dinner out there every night. The owner of the house was great to work with. I can't wait to go back and visit the area and explore more of the town.
The property location was perfect ...
I was very surprised at a lot of things I found uninviting. It truly needs a better cleaning service, the kitchen had roaches on the counter so we had to keep the food in plastic bags at all times. The refrigerator door handle broken and dirty inside with a other peoples food. Also all the bathrooms had other visitors toiletries still there. One additional surprise was the twin bedroom with a open bathroom inside the same room!
Yes it is Historic but one can make it a more inviting rental. To many things not right with this property. It is more like a Frat House then a family weekend rental.
First of all, congratulations again on your son/daughter graduation from college. What a major milestone. I hope your elderly father was able to get around well and enjoy his time there as well. I am truly sorry that you experienced such a bad time. We had fixed the door handle but I assume it came off again. These appliances just have a way of messing up with the wear and tear of many guests in and out. I apologized that the handle was off when you arrived. I will address the roaches on the counter with my cleaner as well as the food in the fridge and toiletries in the bathrooms. Some of that may have been from some family that stay at times. However, It will be taken care of. This house is located right close to a college town division 1 sec football stadium , so it does have a feel of Georgia bulldogs college life. We do have tailgate parties there in the fall. Our guests absolutely love it. But it is also a nice place for families to gather and enjoy themselves. Many families have come and have stayed and enjoyed the house and atmosphere. I guess every family has different opinions of family friendly. The twin bedroom does have a door, so if someone was using the toilet or shower, it would be private. There are three other bathrooms that are available for use. Most people think it is pretty random and cool. I am sorry that you found it not to your liking. I am disappointed it wasn't a good fit for you, I hope that your future stays wherever you go are a better fit for your family. Thank you for letting me know what I need to do in order to make our Dawghouse an even better place to stay for our future guests. Have a great summer! and enjoy having a college graduate!!
IT Could Be Very Nice HOUSE, BUT!
The house generally is a great meeting place but the house does have some problems that need to be addressed. Three of the bedroom doors do not close sufficiently to give you privacy. One is almost falling off its hinges. One of the bedrooms has a bathroom where the sink is out of order and it appears to have been this way for quite a while. So you can shower and use the toilet but must use the main bathroom down at the other end of the house for brushing your teeth, etc. . Another room has a bathroom in the room with no privacy. It is actually in the bedroom with no walls or doors. So you have a 5 bedroom house but three bedrooms are actually using one bathroom. There are two sofa beds but no sheets ,blankets or pillows are provided. There were some extra comforters in a wardrobe but they were very dirty.
This house is for college students not for adults or seniors. The property is not properly disclosed.. If the owners would fix the doors, fix the sink , provide bedding for the sofa beds, provide clean comforters and state it is 5 bedrooms with 2 private baths, one open bathroom in a bedroom and a shared bathroom for 4 to 6 to use, it would let renters know what they are in for.
So I am doing it for them until someone writes a review to let us know differently!!
Last. but not least disturbing was the entrance of strangers at 2:30AM.!!
I was sleeping on one of the sofa beds(with sheets I had to go out and buy) when I heard someone unlock the back door and come in and turn on the kitchen light. Lucky for them I do not own gun. I watched as the two, a man and a woman of undeterminable age whispered. I sat up and the man who's face I could not see, said "Are you renting here? Are any of the rooms empty? I told him yes and no. He said I am the owners brother, sorry to bother you and said we are leaving". I sat there in amazement. Most people would have panicked or called the police.
It took the owner 2 days to call me back and apologize. She said they were family who had keys but should not have come in. She said she would compensate me for this which she did not.
I did not sleep that night.
So in wrapping this review up, beside all the repairs needed , you might have unexpected visitors at all hours.
My recommendation is to skip this rental unless you are desperate and do no shoot any late night visitors, they are drunks looking for a bed. Scary!!!
This is our first year having this house on a rental program such as VRBO. We do have family that use to live at this property and stay there from time to time before we began to rent it out. We had a niece graduating that weekend and sadly the brother failed to communicate with us about the property for that weekend. I did respond back within hours to the guests to see what was going on and jumped on it immediately to find out who came that late with keys. i made all the necessary phone calls and made sure it was a safe situation which it was. It boiled down to no communication between famiy and that has been resolved.
This won't happen again as family has been contacted that this house is a rental house and it must be scheduled. I am truly sorry this happened. I have a few email responses from you saying how you enjoyed your stay and had a great time. I am sorry you have changed your mind about that. I was never told that the sofa beds didn't have linens provided. We have bought plenty and they are there for guests to use as needed. All sinks are working and in good condition. We have had several use this house over the summer and had a great time and no surprise visitors. No reason at all to be scared or nervous. to stay at our wonderful Dawg House. It has brought many wonderful memories for many people. We try our best to make sure our guests have a great experience. The emails I received from this guests indicated everything was fine and was enjoyable except the surprise visit. And again, I handled that as quickly as I could. within hours of being contacted. I will be glad to talk to anyone that would love to stay at our home and experience Georgia Bulldogs Atmosphere! It is a great place to stay and make wonderful memories!
Enjoyed our stay
The house is full of UGa spirit. Great location right on campus. The house was clean with plenty of comfortable beds and a great bar area that we enjoyed using for dinner and watching sports on TV. Would have given 5 stars except the kitchen lacked a few basic items that are needed for meal preparation. Would definitely stay there again.
Clean, older home right on UGa campus
House is just as pictured in photos. Plenty of UGa spirit. Great location right on UGa campus and close to everything Athens has to offer. Older property but well maintained and very clean and comfortable. Would have given 5 stars except kitchen lacked some basic utensils making dinner preparation more difficult. We certainly enjoyed the bar area to watch sports and eat. Would definitely stay there again.
A fun group/family vacation home
Nicole Johns provided excellent communication as we prepared for this visit. The house had plenty of room for a large group of people. It would be helpful to have a layout of the home because we had expected the house to be 2 stories and it was only 1. The sleeper sofas are numerous but best left to kids since they are lacking privacy. The kitchen was well stocked with dishware and pans and we had plenty of space for our food storage during our stay. The location is very convenient. The house was in need of a little sprucing up but in no way impacted our enjoyment during our stay.
Our home is located just feet away from the Sanford Stadium, home of the Georgia Bulldawgs!
