Cute house with plenty of beds

  • 3 of 5

I have stayed at quite a few homeaway homes and have never had a complaint. We cleaned up after ourselves and left the home pretty clean but obviously not clean enough. I was asked to drive over an hour out of my way to come back to clean up some dirt off the stairs and a small mess on the floor. (Took me less than 5 minutes to clean but over an hour to make it there and back which seemed like a complete waste of my time) I understand it is someone else's home but you do pay a cleaning fee. The cleaning fee obviously doesn't cover any dirt on the stairs so if you are going to stay at this place I would suggestion hiring your own cleaning crew for when you leave so you don't have to go back. The owner made it seem as if she was doing us a favor by allowing us to stay there. She seemed burdened by the fact that she had to come clean the sheets etc. We paid a lot of money for one night in aregular sized home. When she was "yelling" at me for the mess, I seriously felt like I was back on high school getting in trouble by my mom. Everything was great until the owner showed up as we were leaving. Everything was down hill after that.

peaceful getaway for our entire family

  • 5 of 5

We were travelling with our small children and in-laws and rented a house as opposed to hotel to just make things easier. It did just that. The house had plenty of room for us, and everything we could really need right there. It was great. Owner also went above and beyond to make sure the house was ready for us since we were getting in late at night.

Five Stars Says It All!

  • 5 of 5

Annie’s Annex (AA) or Julie’s Jewel (JJ), either or fit this magnificent vacation rental property. Our purpose was to attend a family reunion that was 12 years past due so it was extremely important for us to find the perfect fit for our family needs! My wife and I are both retired military and consider ourselves more than qualified to adequately judge overnight housing establishments. The property offered by AA/JJ has everything one good need, it’s fair to say that if they don’t have it, you don’t need it! Fully furnished with a fenced back yard that our German Shepherd loved to play in and there’s a park only two houses down the street—perfect pet friendly environment. The location is very centralized to Valpo and surrounding area activities. I must add, try the Viking Chili Bowl and Tony’s Pizza (Tony’s is cash only). We plan on making this our permanent vacation home.

Thanks Julie and Annie,

Blue Skies,

Bruce & Darla (GSD Sparks)

Great Rental Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positive things about Julie and her rental home. She went above and beyond to make our family feel at home. Her home was child friendly with a baby gate, toys, games, dvds/cable, and a nice backyard. The yard was perfect and spacious. The location was great and was within walking distance to the park, ice cream, shops, and restaurants. The Indiana Dunes were a short drive (20 minutes) and were a highlight for our family. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone.
