About the property

Drive, Walk, Bike to all the action of Downtown Greenville, 30+Day rental

Read our reviews! The house is loaded with all the amenities you would need or ever want to make your visit to our home a fabulous experience. You will love our the location of our neighborhood!

The Park Cottage is a bright and sunny 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. Our Park Cottage is all about location, location, location! One mile from downtown Greenville. Cleveland Park and the Greenville Zoo are right here in our neighborhood. Hop on our bikes or yours and hit the Swamp Rabbit Trail, which takes you to downtown, Greenville's West End, Falls Park, Peace Center, so many amazing restaurants, Fluor Baseball Field, and an endless array of cute shops.


I know what guests want and need when they are away from the comforts of their personal home. To list all we offer would be too much, but I will try:). We provide comfortable beds, luxury linens and towels. We have wireless color printer, WiFi, Roku, 3 large TVs with cable. There is a washer and dryer for laundry. The kitchen is fully stocked! We have games: Clue, Apples to Apples, chess, checkers, Trouble, Yahtzee, Sorry, Uno, playing cards, and Croquet, Jenga. The yard is beautifully landscaped with a fully fenced in backyard and we are pet friendly! We have a large driveway with ample parking. There is a large, beautiful front porch with copper roof that includes a double swing, ceiling fans, and plenty of outdoor seating. The house has hardwood floors throughout and was renovated with everything new in 2013. We include luxury linens and a one time bath towels set up.

Our biggest rule is absolutely NO PARTY GROUPS! Personally, we love to have fun too, but we want to honor our neighbors which are the permanent residence by asking that you agree to our outside quiet time of 9PM.

About Ashley Mattila

We love being part of creating an AWESOME vacation experience for people. Where you choose to stay is a huge part of your vacation. It can make or break your vacation. Our home is a great value. All vacation homes are not created equal! You can always find a cheaper place but we ask you: is saving a few dollars, worth the risk? It is our mission to create a vacation home that we would want to rent ourselves. We have tried to think of everything. We hope you will give us a try.

Ashley Mattila purchased this house in 2016

Why Ashley Mattila chose Greenville

You really could not ask for a better location. Drive, bike, walk or jog to downtown Greenville. The Swamp Rabbit Trail is only blocks from our house. Walk to the Greenville Zoo and Greenville's Cleveland Park which is only 3 blocks. Our neighborhood is so safe and beautiful with towering trees and foliage all around.

This house is just so wonderful. Fully renovated in 2013 with everything new! Hardwood floors throughout; fully stocked, modern kitchen; all bathrooms have been gutted and completely renovated.

Really there is just too much wonderfulness to list it all:) On the outside: Awesome front porch with swing. Amazing large back deck with BBQ and seating for outdoor dining. The back yard is fully fenced and landscaped beautifully. Ample parking.

Sleeps 3 couples super comfortably, but we can accomidate 4 couples if you use the sleeper sofa in the living room. There are 3 twin, pullout beds throughout the house so we can accommodate 11 in beds.

Our biggest rule is absolutely NO PARTY GROUPS! Personally, we love to have fun too, but we want to honor our neighbors which are the permanent residence by asking that you agree to our outside quiet time of 9PM.

Nice property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house, well-equipped in a beautiful neighborhood very close to downtown. Our family rented this house for a month to visit extended family. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Definitely recommend!

Delightful house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks here and loved every minute of it. Ashley was an excellent hostess, going out of her way to explain things like how to use the remote. The house itself is full of unique artwork and lots of things to make guests feel at home, such as luxury sheets, a cupboard full of all sorts of spices and basics, and plenty of utensils and dishes. The appliances, including washer and dryer, are all first rate. The real hardwood floors throughout are lovely. We especially enjoyed the swing on the front porch and eating lunch on the back deck surrounded by trees and singing birds.

The location is perfect--close to downtown but in a quiet, tree-filled neighborhood. A beautiful walking trail is close by and fun. This is the ideal home-away-from-home!

Great home in a Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Greenville to determine if we want to move to the area. We found the location to be stellar! It is barely a block from Cleveland Park with the famous Swamp Rabbit paved bike/jogging trail that will take you to all of the excitement of Main Street (about a mile away, an easy walk) or further on up to Furman University and Traveler's Rest. That is over 35 miles one way! It is a quiet and safe residential neighborhood tucked away, yet only minutes to all the shopping or entertainment Greenville has to offer. The home itself is sweeky clean and updated beautifully. With a television in 3 different areas of the home, everyone is happy. The beds and bedding are comfy cozy, and the towels are fluffy! The kitchen is very efficient and stocked with what you need for most cooking. We didn't use the yard because it was winter, but it is fully fenced with a new fence. We spent most of our time out looking at homes to buy, and rented mountain bikes to enjoy Paris Mountain Trails, and those at Pleasant Ridge only 30 to 45 minutes away. It was nice to return to our nicely appointed, conveniently located home. We will definitely stay in this home again if it is available when we return.

Perfect Place for a Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a more perfect place to have our college friends' reunion. There were five of us, and there was plenty of room for all. The house is beautiful; it's very clean, spacious and situated in a great neighborhood for walking and quickly getting downtown. Everything we could have possibly needed was included, and Ashley was very responsive! We would definitely stay there again if we ever make a trip back to Greenville.
