We recently rented this home for a month, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. This is the third time we've rented this home. It is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighbourhood.The house is very comfortable and the in ground pool and deck is wonderful. The owners are great to deal with and are very accommodating.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our recent stay. The pool was great ! Very nice neighborhood. The only complaint is, while we were in the pool on Wednesday the guy cut the grass. Cutting all around the pool trim work and all. Would of been nice to know he was going to cut ahead of time. We could of waited to get in the pool. Other than that it was great.

It was ok for the price.

  • 3 of 5

Our whole family was in town for a wedding. We shared the house with our daughters family.

It was adequate for our needs.

The owners were wonderful to work with.

This is not a new house and has been well lived in.

Make sure you bring everything you need as there were no extras here.

I want to be honest and fair in my review. Hopefully the owners will work out the issues of getting the house up to par as they say they will.

Owner's Response: It is not a new house but it is well kept and Well furnished as you can see in photos. Not sure what you mean by there are no extras. The kitchen is well stocked with what you need. There are plenty of linens and towels, etc. and a washer and dryer if needed. You were there for a week. If you ran out of something you could get it at Super Walmart down the Street.Glad you were happy with patio & pool area.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It was private, quite, clean & comfortable. The pool was screened so there were no bugs. Stores were close. There was a soft bed and a firm bed to chose from. The cleaning lady helped us figure out the TV. Highly recommend!
