We have had MANY rentals through the years in all parts of the country through various agencies. This is one of the BEST homes we've stayed in. The owners of this home were easy to connect with, seemed very kind, and were a joy to work with. They had taken time most owners don't to provide extra touches and think about extra details that we don't often see. Extra linens, bedclothes, toiletries, etc. were all provided and at our disposal. Cleaning products (from clorox to vacuums, etc) were all easily found and ready for the renter's use (unfortunately not common). They offered the best stocked kitchen I've seen in a rental and some top name appliances (Jenn-Air, Bosch, etc). The property was sparkling clean when we arrived and we tried to keep it that way. I am severely allergic to animals and hadn't realized when we booked that it was an animal friendly property. This property is cleaned so well that I almost no issue at all with even minimal allergic symptoms. I was very impressed by that.
We all felt the home met our needs and desires in a home - not just a rental. Our kids loved having separate "girls'" and "boys'" bathrooms upstairs, and the two large bedrooms at the end of the hall. The coziness of the great room, eat in kitchen, and see through fireplace in both rooms really leant itself to the homey feeling of the property. The owners had even put up a Christmas tree for us!! The Las Meninas print in the dining room thrilled me as it is my favorite painting ever. The large first floor master suite (and Texas sized master bath) certainly helped my husband and I feel at home, and private - hard to do with two tweens and teen. The deck went unused, but looked out on a well maintained yard.
Location - this home is in Beaumont, with fast, easy access to Kroger, Liquor Barn, restaurants, Fayette Mall, Hamburg, several cinemas, with fast access into town and out of town. There was little traffic, and despite the fact that it backs to the YMCA, the location was VERY quiet.
We really loved this house and if we visit family in KY again, will most likely stay here. Thank you for a GREAT holiday visit!
We stayed at Martin House for my son's graduation from UK. The location could not have been more perfect. We were able to walk the short distance to Rupp Arena and aviold the hassle of traffic and parking. The house was spacious and comfortable for our group of eight. I was particularly impressed by how well stocked the kitchen was as we hosted a graduation dinner. I brought a lot of my own supplies (pots, pans, serving pieces, etc.) but I did not use any of them as the kitchen had everything I needed. The bathroom on the main floor is wonderful! Everyone loved the beautiful spacious shower. The house had an ample supply of towels, pillows, etc. Martin House has so much character and is meticulously maintained; it was decorated for Christmas so it immediately felt like home upon entering. I heard the cookies were delicious; they were devoured before I had an opportunity to have one! Martin House was perfect for our weekend and I would highly recommend staying there.
