Over the top experience&service + a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Now, I must say that I have very high expectations when it comes to a customer service experience (especially as someone in various service industries) and from beginning to end the owner, Craig did not let me or anyone that was staying in this beautiful home down. I came into this experience having reviewed every single review that existed on this page, followed by a direct call to the owner to confirm what I read or fill in the gaps (I can be thorough like that). After making the decision to book with him, I just knew that'd be the end of our interactions, until it was time to check out.

However, I was very wrong. In fact, I was far from that truth. My now husband and I were hosting a very special event and Craig meant so much more to our process than we could possibly ask for from a renter. His commitment to supporting our planning process ---from the texts, phone calls, emails and pop up visits at the property prior to the event meant everything to us, providing so much piece of mind; and further affirming that while an unconventional venue location for our event, we made thee right decision.

I am well-beyond satisfied with this experience and forever grateful for the blessing that was 'Uncle' Craig. For any future renters, I can't find any reason that you could ever be disappointed. The house is large, gorgeous, modern, surrounded by beautiful nature and enough seclusion for any kind of renting experience you are hoping to have there. Williams Manor will have everything you need to feel at home and more and if it's not there Craig will help you find it.

Do yourself a favor and book Williams. You won't regret it! Thank you for sharing this gift with us Craig.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space for 5 guys attending conferences in Raleigh. Easy commute into the city. Great back yard with all you need to cook and eat in at night. Stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you Timothy for choosing to stay at one of our Williams Manor properties! We were so glad that the rain storm we had here a few weeks ago did not impede on your trip and conference activities. Happy to hear you were able to enjoy the grounds. Hope to see you next time you come to town!

Nice house but needs improvements

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful home! Enjoyed my stay. Few things that took away from the overall experience: my guest and I had to clean the patio area in order to enjoy it, back porch had not been wiped down in a few seasons, the living room floor had dust build up, kitchen sink odor needs to be addressed, the waterfall didn't work, heater nor fire place were able to be used during my stay, communication with the assistant could use work (everyone deserves respect). Beautiful place but minor details count the most. Thanks for providing a beautiful setting for our weekend but a little more attention to detail wouldn't hurt!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and again for choosing to stay at a Williams Manor property. While we are sorry to hear that the home did not live up to all of your expectations, we are certainly happy to know that overall you enjoyed your stay, the overall feel and look of the home and it's location. As we are deep into spring season here in NC, we have begun our annual deep clean projects that includes touch up paint and deep cleansing to address the normal wear and tear of home rental; the pollen season hit us heavy this year and our new (as of this week) Property Maintenance Manager will tackle landscaping now that it's subsided. With this new hire, we have also recently replaced and upgraded the kitchen faucet and had a plumber to come in and address water flow. Lastly, we have since sought out to find a contractor to repair the outdoor water fountain. We thank you for your candid feedback and take great pride in the service and correspondence that we offer each guest and hope that in the future, you may allow us the chance to better demonstrate our commitment to excellence and your comfort. Thank you, The Williams Manor Team

Good Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house is nice but a few things for a rental I would have preferred.

Dishwasher in Working Fashion

Garage to be straightened up and clean

Microwave in Working Fashion

Overall the house was great but just a few things to make it perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ryan for choosing Williams Manor, as well as for your candid feedback. We have taken note of your follow up and have since ensured the dishwasher is up and running, we've begun to remove more items from the garage with a scheduled overall for early summer to make it a tad more spacious and in search of an appliance contractor. We were unaware that the microwave was not fully functional. Apologies. We hope that you do join us again the future, per your enjoyable stay. Have a great summer!

Perfect space for girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for ten of us to stay for a weekend! We had a photographer come to do some photos and a chef to cook us dinner...it was perfect! Great layout and space for our use and needs - Loved that we could bring our own food and be right at home. Loved the horses on the property behind as well! Perfect quiet place

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent review. We love that you and your guests had a lovely weekend and took advantage of all the space, and of course the bonus view of our neighbor's horses. We hope to see you in the future for similar or new occasions. Have a great rest of 2017 until then!

Great setting for deepening relationships

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. This was a ministry trip with 8 adults and there was plenty of room to cook, to eat and to fellowship together, even with mainly being indoors. We only ventured on the grounds to go see the neighbors' horses but we look forward to coming back in warmer weather to enjoy the luxurious patio.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you've enjoyed your stay and found the home accommodating to your groups needs. We also agree 100% that another great trip would be in the spring, summer or even early fall when you can spend more time on the outdoor grounds. Best to you all and hope to hear from you in the near future!
