Southern charm and style

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples staying in this home. The living, dining, kitchen and patio were wonderful places to gather and entertain. The decor of this home is above and beyond other VRBOs we've used previously. Mr. Brown has great taste and it was a pleasure to spend time in this beautifully decorated space. We would definitely rent this home again on our next trip to Birmingham.

Great warm inviting residence.

  • 5 of 5

The house was situated in a central area of Birmingham, quite neighborhood. Loved the front porch with French doors and the private back patio. The interior was nicely decorated. We all felt like we were in a nice getaway away place.

Beautiful home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a larger group. We all had our own space in the house but were able to gather in the main living area to enjoy our time together. Highly recommend this home if you are spending time in Birmingham!

Beautiful stay and the owner thought of everything! It was very nice for the family to be together under one roof during a difficult time. I have shared this site with many because of this wonderful experience! I will always want to stay at this residence whenever in town!

Good house with a great kitchen

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for extended family to gather for the Christmas holiday. We had 6 adults and 3 kids in the house. The space was big enough to accommodate all of us. We cooked meals at the house the entire week and the kitchen had enough space for multiple people to work at one time. Probably one of the best kitchens we have had in a rental. It was a tight squeeze to get all of us around the table, but it worked. (The chairs need new cushioning.) The only challenge we had with the house was the heating. It was very uneven throughout - some rooms really warm and some very cold. I assume it is due to the age of the house and additions that have been put in. It was close to most of the activities we had planned - the zoo, McWane Center, and Avondale Brewery (for the night we got a babysitter).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am happy your large family had a lovely Christmas at my home. I wish you had called me about the uneven heat it is a very simple fix as my home has one very large HVAC system that is one year old. All you needed to do was fully all the vents on the lower floor as they need to be fully open when the heat is on and closed down with the AC on. I have antique dining room seats on my to do list. I hope you will have the opportunity to return and I can get a higher rating from you on your next stay.
