Fantastic quiet place for a First Monday Trip

  • 5 of 5

A group of us came to go to First Monday. We had decided that we would not stay in a motel, but try and find something a little better by staying in a home. This was IDEAL! This property is a 2 bedroom with 2 queen beds in each room. The home is spacious the kitchen is great, the living area is great, the yard is great. When you drive onto the property you see that it is a part of a storage facility. At first you might think that this would be an issue. The entire time we were there, I think we saw 1 person come to the storage facility. That really was no big deal. The one and only draw back is the privacy for the bathrooms. In the one bedroom, there is no door on the toilet. In the other bathroom, the pocket doors don't really lock. I have to say that the next time we come to first Monday, this is where we will stay, again and again. But, if we could work on some privacy for the bathrooms, that would make this place perfect. Notice that it is not so much an issue to make it be less than 5 stars.

Perfect House and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The only thing I see it needs is a full length mirror and maybe tv's in the bedrooms. Thanks for letting us stay. We had a great time.

Convenient and clean!

  • 4 of 5

The home was lovely, immaculate, well-maintained, and very conveniently located just off of I-20 in Canton. I am a clean-freak, and everything in this home was clean. We were in Canton for an event at the First Monday Trade Days site and the home was no more than 2 miles away and 2 miles in the other direction from Wal-Mart, a grocery store, restaurants, and other shopping, so it worked out perfectly. The host, Dorie, was very sweet and communication was good with her, but I did not receive the address or any contact information from HomeAway even after I had booked and paid for the property. I received an email confirmation but no property information was included other than a link to the listing. Three days before my trip, I finally contacted their customer service; they would not give me the property address either, but did contact the host and gave me her phone number so I could call her. I have booked through both VRBO and AirBnB before, and they always provide this information as soon as you pay, so this was a shocker to me. This is not a negative for this property per se, but I don't think I would book through HomeAway again. We travel with large dogs and Dorie allowed us to bring the dogs, which I am very grateful for. My only disappointment was that there was no washer/dryer in the home, and that is something that is important to me. I went back to check the listing and there is no mention of a washer/dryer, so I guess that was an oversight on my part, but I just assumed a fully furnished home would have laundry facilities. Also, I think it should be noted that the home is the on-site, property manager home within the fenced area of a public self-storage facility. This is not included in the listing either, and it was a bit disturbing to me to go out at night to walk my dogs and find people milling around almost in the backyard. I think this is a critical location aspect that potential renters should be made aware of.

The house was quite comfortable, and it worked well for our family. It is located very close to town and the trade days (although we were not there for trade days.)
