The private guest house was great

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Norman. This home is close enough to bike to campus, and it's proximity allowed us to easily tour the campus with frequent stops to enter familiar buildings such as the magnificent library and administration building. When it came time for a meal, we enjoyed looking theough the menus of favorite locations provided by the homeowners. Our favorite time, however was sitting in the beautiful backyard oasis at the end of the day. This home is a wonderful alternative when planning a stay in Norman.

Private Oasis and great Host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at Shannon & Katie's place in Norman. It is very private and the grounds has a feel of a resort. They have done a marvelous job with the landscaping and patio area. The house is clean, decorated nice and had everything we needed. Shannon was a fantastic host, he answered every email and text in a timely manner. He also gave us some great tips about OU campus, (we were going to a OU game), we were even able to take their bikes for a stroll through the neighborhood. This is also a great location, especially if your going to OU campus.

Thanks Shannon and Katie for a great stay and we will definitely stay at your place again if we ever get back to Norman.

Sincerely, Allen & Dawn Spencer

I can't say enough good things about our stay! The Carrion family is amazing! They were so welcoming and accommodating. They made us feel right at home and treated us like family! Definitely some of the best people that I've been fortunate enough to meet! The rental was well equipped with everything you could possibly need! Beautiful backyard, patio and swimming pool! We enjoyed ourselves immensely and will definitely stay here again! I highly recommend this rental!

Private Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous pool area! The guest house was clean and comfortable. I wanted to have a special day with my six year old grandson where we could swim and have fun to celebrate his graduating first grade and to start out his summer vacation. I didn't really want to go to a hotel so this was perfect. He enjoyed the jungle gym and x-box too. I enjoyed the Hot Tub! The owners were very nice and accomadating. Great place to stay if you are coming to Norman for a visit, business, a relaxing get-away with someone special or even just some alone time. Highly recommend!
