About Ericka Brown RN, BSN

My husband is a practicing physician and I am a Registered Nurse. We relocated to a growing area of Northwest Arkansas (Wal-Mart and JB Hunt headquarters) a few years ago to be closer to both of our families and live a slower paced life with our children. We have four children: 25,17, 7 and 3 year old, and used to live in this house while working in California. We kept it as something we could always come back to. Since turning the house into a vacation rental, we use it as a vacation destination for our family and great guests from all over the world several times a year. Our current address is 4601 W.

                                                              Perfect for our trip to Disney

                                                              Christine B.

                                                              The home was perfect for our family of 11 staying for a trip to Disneyland. It was very well stocked and had everything we needed. Our kids (and the adults) loved the pool. The yard was beautiful and fenced so the little ones could run around. The back patio was nice for relaxing and barbecuing. Ericka was a great host with excellent service to her guests.

                                                              Excellent backyard area, large house for family gathering

                                                              Tom P.

                                                              Overall, this house was in an excellent location (i.e., close to extended family for Christmas gathering), and provided everything as advertised. We would definitely stay in this house the next time we have a family gathering in the area.

                                                              Thank you Tom! It was a pleasure to have you and your family in St. John Way home. We appreciate the opportunity. Best wishes! :)

                                                              Fantastic property!

                                                              Thank you Ericka for an excellent home with wonderful amenities! our trip was very short. but the property was wonderful, I wish we could have stayed several more days just to enjoy the back patio and pool! I will definitely recommend your property to anyone looking to stay in the area.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you Aaron so much for your awesome review. We're so glad you and your family enjoyed St. John Way home. Best wishes! :)

                                                              Great location to stay for my son's wedding at Coyote Hills Golf Course! Comfortable & Nice Decor.

                                                              Patti L.Minden, NV

                                                              Quiet & comfortable home with a very nice back yard with the pool, Bar-B-Que & a big dining table for our dinner party. Very nice layout! The living room has a big dining table & sliding door to the back patio as does the kitchen. We had our son's wedding rehearsal dinner here & everybody had a great time! Everyone loved the house!

                                                              It's not too far from Disneyland, I drove there twice to drop off family & it only took about 20 minutes each way. There is a shopping center a block away for practically anything you may need. We enjoyed the pool, as there was a heat wave. The house does have good A/C! We also enjoyed a couple of ripe papayas off of one of the fruit trees. Soon there will be ripe oranges & grapefruit! The yard is nice & private. The living room & kitchen each have big new TV's that worked great. The whole house is well equipped! I'd recommend this home!

                                                              Thank you Patti for your well descriptive and nice review. We appreciate it! Best wishes.

                                                              Wonderful spacious home

                                                              Joan C.Healdsburg, CA

                                                              Uncommonly clean, nicely appointed, furnished and recently renovated—this property is great for families/friends visiting the area. We loved everything about it. There are five bedrooms - one very ample downstairs master bedroom with private bath, plus four bedrooms upstairs and other sleeping areas in family room, etc.

                                                              The kitchen was well equipped with new, modern appliances, dishes, cooking pots, pans, serving platters, etc. etc. Every detail was well cared for and relatively new.

                                                              The pool is great - with a safety fence (as all the pictures show). and the yard is ample for kids to run about and explore - with fruit-bearing trees to discover and more.

                                                              The owner, Ericka, was always great about responding and, though we never needed it, made us feel we could get help anytime we needed.

                                                              A great property for multiple couples or a large family.

                                                              Dear Joan,

                                                              We are so thankful for your nice review! We also hope, someday...will see you again! Best wishes to you and your family.

                                                              Relaxing Beautiful Property

                                                              Karen S.Dalton

                                                              We travel to California every year to visit our son and friends for vacation. This house has the best outdoor space! The pool with sliding board is as beautiful as the picture shows and the outdoor area has plenty of seating, fruit trees, grill, and plenty of yard space to play bocce ball and molkkey (a new lawn game, for us). We always cook a lot when we get together. The kitchen is well equipped, but if you are doing a lot of baking, you can always check with Erika to make sure you have everything you need. She is very responsive. The few extra things we needed, we had family close. We made homemade pretzels, cookies, biscuits and pizza. Albertson Grocery store and Target are near by for groceries. We enjoyed a lot of activities including Disney, LA Angels baseball game, miniature golf, two beaches, Shaw's Cove in Laguna Beach and Crystal Cove State Park Beach, Romp-o-rama, the Irvine Regional Park and the Hollywood area (including Amoeba Music). This is a beautiful house and we loved our stay...and hope to stay again!
