Would not recommend

  • 1 of 5

House was okay and as described. We had fun on our vacation, however the property is not child safe. The property gate out front closed while my vehicle was in the driveway because it was not equipped with a sensor or child safety switch. Would not recommend Based on customer service and lack of help on issue resolution from management.

Owner's Response: Hi Areg, I am very sorry to hear that you believe we were not helpful in resolving the issue. The gate has never been an issue before because it is a manually operating gate. I spoke with you about how we could help rectify the situation but I never heard back from you. We always provide the best help that we are able to but without your response there not much I can do to help. Again, please reach out and we can work together to get this problem fixed. Thank you so much! Candace Knowlton

Fantastic spot for friends weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our birthday/mom's getaway in July 2017. The house was clean, comfortable and very spacious for a group of 8, but could've easily fit 12 people total. The A/C worked well, all the kitchen appliances too, and the area is super safe and quiet. I loved that it was a gated home, which made us feel very safe and secure, as if we had our own private resort! I especially loved the saltwater pool and the game room! We all had a blast and would definitely rent this house again in the future!

Also, Candace, the property manager, was very gracious and met us upon arrival to let us in and give us a tour, as well as answer any questions we had about the house. She was very easy to communicate with and always responded in a timely manner.

Great property, amazing location, even better management

  • 5 of 5

First of all, it is rare that a property is actually better in person than in online photos, but that is the case with this property. Immaculate, well stocked kitchen, awesome outdoor grill, game room, pool, everything exceeded expectations. The best part of the entire experience, however, was the property management. Candice and Darcey were incredibly accommodating upon check in and check out. I can't say enough about how gracious and accommodating these two were. A real pleasure all the way around. Thanks for making our weekend so great! Much appreciated!

Great pool and house! Convenient location to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

The pool is just as beautiful as it looks in the photos. We spent all of our time in the water. The umbrella covers a corner of the pool which is perfect for the hot hot heat of July. The kitchen is pretty well stocked for a rental. We could walk to a lot of great spots downtown and despite being located near busy streets, the backyard is quite tranquil and quiet, and private. The property managers were great to work with and accommodating of our group. We would definitely stay here again. If I could improve one thing, it would be better AC and better flow of air throughout the house, some rooms just did not cool down.
