Beautiful home, well furnished for our group of 11. Had a great time and a Hokie victory.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and more. Easy communication, check in/out. Perfect setting for a reunion of alumni friends. Really nice place. We are already talking about returning. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Great Place for Virginia Tech Graduation!

  • 5 of 5

Last year, after finding that the local hotels were already booked for graduation weekend, I went to my go-to website, VRBO. The listing for this house seemed like it would do nicely for our extended family to be together for graduation. Once again, VRBO came through! The house is well-kept, convenient to campus, with beautiful views. We had 14 overnight and all but 3 had real beds. They slept on the cushy sofas, 2 upstairs and 1 down. They were from age 15 through 87. The homeowners were great to work with, paying attention to the details. It was a very nice home away! We highly recommend "Home Away from Home for Hokies"!

Perfect House for our Visit

  • 5 of 5

We had family members arriving from several locations for a wedding in Blacksburg and this was a perfect place for everyone to stay.. the house is large enough for everyone to feel comfortable and there is plenty of room for storing luggage, etc. The finished basement gave us an additional gathering place that was nice with such a large group. A great deck with a fabulous view! Also, Erika Henry was very organized and efficient -- she responded to emails quickly and made sure everything was taken care of for our arrival. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely home, close to town - beautiful views - great communication with owners.

  • 5 of 5

Ten of my friends and I were able to reconnect in our college town for the first time in over a decade. Whereas a hotel would have involved 5 different rooms behind 5 different doors, this home provided us the ease of sharing coffee together each morning, snacks and cocktails for happy hour each afternoon, and an easy Uber ride downtown when we decided to visit campus or Blacksburg. While there, we enjoyed convenient laundry access following a rainy hike in the Cascades, and were able to network all of our digital devices so we could enjoy each other's music in the background. The back deck and it's views of the mountains was a fantastic place to spend time catching up with each other. I'd highly recommend this rental. I know I'll reach out again, the next time I have several friends heading to Blacksburg.

Great Home for Family Reunion, mixed ages, pet lovers, Etc.!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-age family met for a get together and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very inviting and comfortable, and there are many areas to casually gather to visit both all together or in smaller groups. The fenced yard is spacious and has a nice play area for children. The outside deck was overlooking the backyard and even in November was warm and sunny! We appreciated the use of the kitchen which was well stocked. The Hokies collection downstairs was very impressive (we happen to be Tennessee Volunteers)! We hope to come again.

Great Host and Home!

  • 5 of 5

Erika was an incredible host who paid attention to every detail. I had a group stay in her home for a football game this season and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Erika prepared us for our trip with detailed instructions a few days before and an organized binder in the house full of answers to any question you would have. I highly recommend staying here!
