  • Central location. Very comfortable apartment, but with some noise issues

    "My wife and I rented this property for a week during a 5 week road trip to explore central Virginia The accommodation is a mature property, situated alongside a very busy road. Although the apartment (we had unit D on the first floor) was double glazed, we did not find it possible to have an undisturbed night’s sleep due to the traffic, especially at peak times and with the number of emergency vehicles with sirens sounding using this route. Parking was provided – a permit was available to make use of the adjacent parking lot. Externally, the appearance of the property is very welcoming, and on entering we were most impressed with its cleanliness. The bedroom is well proportioned with plenty of storage. Linens were of a good quality although we found the mattress on the double bed a little soft for our liking. The en-suite bathroom has a shower over a small bath. It worked efficiently and there was always ample hot water at good pressure. There were plenty of soft, fluffy towels for us to use. The living area has a comfortable settee and an arm chair. There is a modern TV with the usual cable package. In the dining area there was a high table and chairs for two. The kitchen has a four ring hob and oven. There is a large fridge / freezer as well as a full sized-dishwasher. There is a washing machine and separate tumble dryer – this is a very useful facility for those renters staying for longer periods of time. All the appliances we used worked well and were very clean. There were modest amounts of crockery, glassware and cutlery. The wi-fi was very effective. Externally there is a small deck to the rear with a table and two chairs. Other residents were quiet – we didn’t meet any of them during our short stay although the wooden floors mean that you could hear people walking about and using the bathroom. We found the air conditioning effective at keeping the temperature in the apartment cool but it was quite noisy when it came on. Maybe it’s something residents would get used to. We felt a little uneasy about the personal security to the rear of the apartment. Although the bedroom had a locked door, it opened onto a wooden fire escape. These in turn led to a steel gate, but this could not be locked and was left open. As a result, anyone passing by could access the rear of the property. It would have been good to have the extra reassurance of a secure area to the rear. A special word of thanks to Jill for the contact leading"

  • Hidden gem

    "Our vacation to SML was one of the best we've ever had. We were so impressed with this rental and its amenities as well as the hospitality of its owners. When we checked in, we found a basket of goodies from the owners waiting for us as well as a fridge full of drinks. We received both a text and email from the owners making sure we had everything we needed and their phone # so we could contact them. The house itself sits on a private cove with no boat traffic which makes it perfect for families. The view of the lake was amazing from the large windows. Our kids loved jumping off the dock, swimming, kayaking, fishing, floating on the large inflatable and riding in the paddle boat. We have never stayed in a rental that provided so many amenities. The house was beautifully decorated and well equipped. We didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back!"

  • Great View. Spacious House. Great Hosts.

    "Beautiful and spacious vacation rental house. Excellent spot on the lake. Close to Bridgewater Plaza by boat. Beautiful view from the back deck. Kathy and Spike were great to work with and answered all our questions. We will definitely stay at this location again if we go to Smith Mountain Lake in the future."
