Very sweet home!

  • 5 of 5

My bridesmaids and I loved staying here over my wedding weekend! The house was so inviting. We didn't have any trouble finding what we needed. I would definitely book again.

House could use a little TLC. All in all it worked fine for us and Molly was great to work with.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home. The neighborhood is quiet and the area is walkable. The fenced backyard was just what my Boston Terrier needed and sitting on the back patio was relaxing. This home had everything we needed for our stay during our son's wedding activities. Molly was very attentive to our needs. I highly recommend staying here and I plan to stay here again in the future.

Fun, roomy cottage, but wicked steps, no iron and dirty clothes on the washer...

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here for a wedding. The location was great. The house is as advertised, albeit a bit old. One bathroom has been remodeled as has the kitchen. However, the other tub did not drain well at all. The lamps in the front bedroom did not work, there was no iron and ironing board that I could find, there was a stack of dirty laundry on the washer.

Also, the drive is so steep that you cannot get your car level. I was traveling with flowers so that was problematic. We had two cars and it was dicey parking and getting in and out because the parking areas was so small and so incredibly steep.

Also, the steps are very steep, not the same distance apart, and have loose bricks, and there is no hand rail. Being dressed for a wedding and other events, I had to wear a pair of tennis shoes up and down the step. The picture does not give the true slope of the steps.

I also had a horrendous time with VRBO which is not the owner's fault. The were atrocious...

comfortably adaquate; excellent location

  • 3 of 5

in comparison with other Home Away experiences, this was in the mid range. The house was clean and the kitchen and baths were updated. The location can't be beat for B'ham visitors. The furnishings were adequate, the kitchen supplies were also adequate but not up to other homes I've stayed in. Communication with the owner was difficult; no phone number given so preliminary questions as well as contact while there were sporadic. Would have been nice to have directions for operating the tv. Overall, certainly better than a hotel, but a little room for improvement Three and 1/2 stars

Charming one-story cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this property for a few days before Christmas. It was very comfortable and accomodated our family well. Although it is located on a busy street, we did not experience any disturbance from traffic. The beds and bath were comfortable and well appointed. This property is located conveninetly to many different areas, and I would recommend if you want an upgrade from a hotel.
