Guestbook comments from the owner

The house couldn’t have been more perfect for us. Our 2yr old loved the little house on the patio and the adults loved sitting outside and watching her play. The children’s books and toys were a big hit too. She fell in love with the little stuffed lion (bear?) that was on the bookshelf in the living room—called it her baby and carried it everywhere. I had to hide on an upper shelf of the bookcase so we wouldn’t have to report a toy-napping incident. We went to the toy store on Mass and got her a substitute ‘baby’ to take with her on the plane.

The kitchen was thoughtfully & thoroughly supplied. The drawer with the large selection of spices/herbs was a delight to all the cooks in our family. The really nice selection of pots and cast iron pans, and the ample supply of dishes & silverware, made it easy to prepare family meals.

We were surprised at how quiet the house was in spite of being on 9th. The furnishings were all comfortable/attractive. Enjoyed the artwork too!

Also, appreciated how promptly you responded to my email questions. We would gladly stay at your VRBO again and recommend it to others.

Kind regards,

Great location and perfect for a family visit

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home in Lawrence. We were able to walk into town and having the grocery store at the corner was perfect. It was a wonderful place for our family to spend Thanksgiving together.

Thanks again.

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Had a family reunion. Six adults and a 2-year old. Worked well. Roomy. Clean. Centrally located. Nicely appointed. The owner was very responsive to any questions. Since the house will accommodate up to ten people, the kitchen could use a griddle and some baking sheets. Otherwise, it is very functional. The beds range from firm to soft. If you have a preference, check them before you pick one. The mattress cover on the one we slept on was a little crinkly but okay. If you like barbecue, Biemer's Barbecue is very close. Everyone enjoyed themselves. We will stay here again if the occasion arises. I would recommend it to my friends/relatives.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The house was centrally located - very convenient to walk through the beautiful neighborhood to campus or just across the street to the a grocery store. It had plenty of space and provided what we needed. I was a little disappointed in the quality of the beds/bedding, cleanliness and lack of kitchen supplies, we enjoyed our stay overall.

Owner's Response: Hi Sheila, I am sorry to hear that you thought the beds were uncomfortable. We have ordered 3" foam toppers for the beds and hope that resolves any comfort issues. Our cleaners work hard but sometimes overlook things but we are happy to have them come back during your stay, and guests move kitchen supplies around and we have extra in storage so if there was anything specific missing just let us know and we're happy to provide it.

Family home

  • 4 of 5

We love Lawrence and this was our second stay in this home. The home is convenient for KU and downtown - a bit over a mile walk to downtown. It is roomy and "lived in" so perfect for families. The downstairs bedroom with 2 double beds and a bathroom is a great space for kids. The screened in porch is a bonus in nice weather as is the backyard area with swings and furniture.
