Wonderful Home & Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough nice things about this property and its owners. The home was plenty spacious enough for us (2 parents, 2 grandparents, a 10-year old boy, 3 dogs, plus visiting relatives throughout our stay). The house was renovated nicely, with thoughtful touches throughout such as on-demand hot water heater, thick fluffy towels, large washer/dryer, one mattress with level adjustment & massage, extremely comfortable mattresses, 2 beds in kids' room, flat screen TVs everywhere, extra blankets/pillows, fenced yard for our dogs, covered parking, even coffee and water, plus spices and condiments in the fridge. The owners went above and beyond while we were there, making sure we had everything we needed and responding quickly when a smoke alarm falsely went off due to a low battery. They even came over to fix a few holes in the fence so our small dogs could not escape! My son enjoyed the rope swing (he said to please add a tire for next time - lol). The property is located very close to a small ball park, convenience store, tiny Mexican restaurant, the Tuscaloosa airport, and downtown Northport (visit City Café)! We always felt very safe and walked to several of these. Also short drive to Alabama campus where we enjoyed a football game and the Bear Bryant Museum. Thank you, Tammie, for everything while we escaped Hurricane Irma! We felt like we were in a home away from home!

Clean comfortable house well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

Newly remodeled nicely decorated very roomy home. Landlords were very attentive. One of the TVs in the bedroom quit working and they had it replaced in hours with a brand new one. I will be staying again and highly recommend.

Great house close to the UA campus!

This is one of the better VRBO's that we have stayed in. The house is very cute and decorated very well. The AC works very well! It is very spacious and comfortable. I would recommend this house and will definitely see if it is available the next time we travel to the area!

Wonderful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Northport house Thanksgiving weekend and had our Thanksgiving dinner at the house. We had plenty of room. It's a lovely kitchen. The whole house is very nice. It was so much better than getting 2 or 3 hotel rooms. We had a great weekend and would love to go back. I would highly recommend it!
