About Martin Halla

We are striving to provide the best experience to our guests through providing clean, upgraded house and offering more and more amenities. The guests' satisfaction is very important to us. We want our guests to feel like home.

Martin Halla purchased this house in 2009

Why Martin Halla chose Albrightsville

Poconos is an excellent area that provides all year round activities Our location is in safe gated private community on top of the Pocono Plateau and only 15 minutes from the Hickory State Park that offers many trails to hikers. Famous Hawk Falls are within 10 minute short drive.. We are also very close to the Lehigh River which offers damn release white water rafting. Delaware river canoeing is only 25 minutes away

What makes this house unique

I really enjoy the position of the house in the mature forest. You feel truly connected to the nature through the flora and wild life that is very common in the forest (Deer, turkeys, squirrels ). We are only short 3 minute walking distance from the indian lake which provides great 2 mile loop for joggers or walkers. At the winter I enjoy the wood burning stove that provides cozy heat . With a g lass of wine at our new kitchen and high speed Internet, I cannot ask for more. I also enjoy the gated community's safety. One does not have to worry about any by-passers as only residents authorized visitors are allowed to the community.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time here. The hot tub was so fun! At night we went out and the moon was really bright and the sky was so clear.The kitchen was fully equipped and everything looked new and clean. I could live in this house and be happy- it was that perfect! House was so private which was nice.

Also, we heard lots of birds singing from the deck. We hope to come back again soon!

Owner's Response: Rafal, we are glad you had a great time ! The house is surrounded by vacant wooded lots offering a complete privacy and true connection to the nature. Deer pass on daily basis and it is not uncommon to see wild turkeys as well. This summer, we are adding a patio and outdoor fireplace to enjoy more outdoor living and Poconos beautiful evenings.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your your review. We use a professional cleaning service that does an amazing job on all our houses. I personally check houses after each cleaning to insure the highest quality to our guests. Per our contract, we also ask you to let notify us if the house has not been clean upon your arrival. We never got such a notice. It is unfortunate to learn about this from a review without any details. Nevertheless, we are going to toughen up to provide excellent stay to our guests. Thank you

THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! The owner was very roode, impolite and ignorant! DO NOT BOOK THIS HOUSE!

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived to the house we noticed, that it wasn't clean (the dust on the shelves and a lot of cat's or dog's hair on the floor allover the house!). Then we started to settle down in the bedrooms and saw the beds' linens were all covered with cat's or dog's hair ( DISGASTING!). Thank GOD, I got a roller sticker for cleaning clothes, so we had to clean out all the hair from the beds (We had two little children ) It was unpleasant. Then, we went to check that "detached guest room", that as described was supposed to be warm, since there was a heater. IT WAS APSOLUTELY COLD! And there was one electronic heater, which didn't heat any square feet of this room. As a matter of fact it was -2F degrees' outside with a lot of snow and wind, and that "room", which was a converted shed had no isolation for protecting the room from the cold weather! So we were having another couple, coming that evening, who were going to sleep in that "Guest room", BUT HOW? IN THIS COLD! So when they came, of course they were disappointed and wanted to leave right away, when we had to convince them to stay and sleep at the couch, so that next day we would call the owner of the house to solve the problem. So they staid for that night; they unfolded the couch (which also was covered with hair) and found out, that it had a thin (cheap) and weak mattress, which also was bent the way that if you slept on it your head or legs would be lower than the other part of your body. So they had to sleep on that crappy couch. During the night we heard some strange sounds, like if there was an animal somewhere in the house. And very soon in the morning, our friends, that slept on the couch told us, that they saw a WHITE MOUSE under the sink, as it was making noise at night, so they decided to get up and check, and surely this very morning I checked the house and found a lot of mice' droppings (poop) allover the house ( specifically on the window sills of every room and in the kitchen cabinets!) OH, HOW NASTY IT WAS, Sleeping around the mice poop and knowing you cannot cancel the booking and leave this house! So we called the owner, But when we told him about the mouse, he acted like he was surprised and had no idea, when there were mouse traps in the cabinets! He asked that we prove him, that this is true, and we would. But when he came, he ignored us and had not enter the house, said no hello or apologies for the inconvenience, he totally ignored everyone, who tried to talk to him...

The Most Relaxing Weekend I’ve Ever Had

  • 5 of 5

Upon first arriving at this welcoming cozy cabin in the woods you feel the relaxation of what you will experience the entire weekend. This house is furnished with modern funiture and appliances, beds are comfortable, there is a hot tub out back and also a seperate small house with two extra beds. Overall if your looking for a weekend to just get away from everything this place has more than what you need. The houses in this area are spaced far apart so you and your guests will have your own privacy. Unlike most neihborhoods where house are spaced realitivly close to each other, because of this aspect aswell the house is beautifully surrounded by nature. The best aspect of this house i believe is the view of the backyard, during my stay it luckily snowed and i sat on the patio with my partner seeing the calm snow falling to the ground and watching occasional deers pass by. During our stay we also utalized the hot tub which was relaxing in its self. The sauna was also a plus which gave the final touch to an outstanding weekend. I’m glad that me and my partner picked this place because it was exactly what we needed away from the busy city of new york.
