"We booked within a week of our trip and booked because of price, location, and availability! Owner was quick to respond to questions and confirm our booking.
The only confusing part of the trip was the check-in time. On all the info online, it said 3pm, but when I looked up info the day before, it said 4pm. I had contacted the owner about the possibility of an earlier check-in (closer to noon), and he said he could check closer to the date, but I didn't hear back. I also didn't follow up, because we went ahead and made plans to arrive after 5pm. Not a big problem, just something you may want to confirm.
We were pleased with the quiet location of The Knolls, and it wasn't very busy at all on a mid-week visit. The place itself was small, but a great space for our family of 3. We appreciated the key-code entry, washer/dryer (bring your own laundry detergent, though), wi-fi access, and nice refrigerator. We ate most meals in, and it was great to have everything we needed, including a small grill on the deck. The condo was updated and clean, and was a great space for us to share meals and chill out between pool time and other activities. One note: one reviewer said that the bathroom was only accessible through the guest room, but this was not the case. It adjoins the guest room, but there is also a door from the family area, so it wasn't a problem for us.
We enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck, watching turtles and fish that gather in the lake below. The pools, playground, and clubhouse at The Knolls were FANTASTIC, especially for those with little kids. Our 3 year old loved playing in the shallow end of the outdoor pool and had a blast. The location was convenient, and we found we could get to dining and activities very easily with good highway access.
Overall, it was a great trip. An affordable, clean, cozy spot. Would definitely recommend!"
