About Chrys and Lashon ( Property Managers )

Hello, my name is Chernda Pendleton and this home was the first me and my husband purchased. The home have a down home southern feeling. We decided to purchase another home and decided families visiting for graduations and family gathering could use our house as a home away from home. We are a retired military family therefore we know the need for living situations rather you visiting or staying.

Chrys and Lashon ( Property Managers ) purchased this house in 2004

Why Chrys and Lashon ( Property Managers ) chose Southern Georgia

What makes this house unique

This house has enough space to make any family feel at home , without the feeling of being cluttered.

Loved this property

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and very homey. My son did his basic training at Fort Benning so I rented this house for his family weekend and his graduation. It was so close to everything and my family loved it. I recommend it for anyone who has a son at fort benning and wants the comfort of a home. A perfect place thank you

Great locationfor Fort Benning and accomodating owners

  • 5 of 5

I was a little concerned when we drove into the neighborhood but my concerns were quickly alleviated when we walked into the house. Very nice, clean home and comfortable for our family. We were in Georgia for our son's graduation from Fort Benning. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The first night we had a few small issues with the tv and washer but I contacted the owners and the problems were rectified immediately. I would highly recommend this for anyone attending activities at Fort Benning. I loved having the home atmosphere to spend time with our soldier instead of being in a hotel room. Thanks for the great experience.

We really enjoyed your home rental. One suggestion, label your inside trash can with a recycle sign, it would make recycling easier. I did not see a broom or we could have swept the house. Thank you for renting us your home.

My daughter Debra Rodriguez told me she put down a deposit for the house for graduation time. Our soldier really enjoyed the home during His day leave.

Do not recommend.

  • 1 of 5

This is the perfect place for you if you enjoy staying in an area with bars on the windows and gunshots at night.

Hoestly, I am writing this review after receiving a notice that I am not getting my deposit back. That is the very first time I have ever been denied a deposit. I not ashamed to share my issues here.

Actual message from homeowner:

"Dear guest upon inspection of the home the front door was found to be unsecured. It was unlock. storm windows was left up. and the full size bed was broke. Food was left inside home and trash in bedroom trash cans. Your security deposit will not be returned due to damage."

My reply to the voiced concerns:

Wow, incredibly disappointed that I am not getting my refund back. I will address a few things.

1. Sorry the front door was left unlocked, that and the windows was definitely an oversight on our part. *Windows would not have been opened if the ability to turn the air conditioner below 76 was possible.

2. I was unaware of the broken full size bed. The grandparents slept in on Thursday and Friday and no one since. I'm curious how it is broken. We had no kids with us.

3. The food was left as a gift to pass on.

UNOPENED cheese sticks, bottled water, sauerkraut, and baked beans. The cooked and opened food was thrown out prior to departure. We hated to throw the unopened items out and didn't want to take them home. We had hoped someone would take them and use them. We have left unopened food in other homes and that had never been an issue. If I had known it was an issue we wouldn't have done that.

4. The bedroom trash was an oversight as well and that should have been obvious as we had taken the rest of the trash out.

5. I went ahead did a load of bedding and towels to help with the clean up process as a favor. I'm sorry that I did that. I have stay in several homes and condos and have never had my deposit with held.

6. You may consider removing the moldy interior shower curtain from the small bathroom shower.

7. Probably should call the pest control phone number that is on the fridge as we found a cock roach in a kitchen drawer.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home, I will be proceeding with writing my review.

I apologize and admit to our oversights.

We truly take care of the homes we stay in and respect them as our own.

The positives.

1. Close to Ft Benning.

2. Spacious.

3. Plenty of towels.

4. Alarm system (consider the area)

Good luck to any one who chooses to stay here.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I am glad you wrote your concerns. But you managed the over sight of read the welcome book upon arrival. I find it ironic that the review you wrote in the welcome book in the home was good, and when you realized you wouldn't be receiving deposit you changed your tune. You heard no gunshots and there is no burglar bars on windows.The neighborhood is close to post and safe. Yes the shower curtain was changed and the house is treated monthly for pests. But you didn't see any in home , you just saw the pest control magnet on refrigerator. I hope you enjoyed your time with your graduate and next time you will be more comfortable in the many hotels offered in Columbus Georgia.

Comfortable, clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This was a great spot for us to stay for our son's graduation! It was close to the post, clean, and comfortable. Amenities are close by such as the grocery store, and it appears exactly as the pictures. The yards both front and back were clean as well, and the security system and gate made us feel especially safe. I was glad that we ended up with only five adults after all since the futons in the den while great for children, probably wouldn't be as comfortable for adults. We enjoyed being able to fix my son his favorite meal as well as have a few of his buddies join us. There was plenty of room for all to stretch out and feel comfortable. Thank you for the great place!

basic training graduation

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time using this website and I was pretty nervous about the whole thing. The reservation process was quick and painless but I was still nervous about the home. We arrived late on our first night. The porch light was left on for us and we felt welcomed right away! The home is exactly like the pictures on the website, there were no surprises. Almost everything you need for your stay was right at your fingertips. The home was clean and comfortable and we felt safe at all times. We were in town for my son's graduation from basic training at Fort Benning and the location was very convenient. I would recommend this rental for anyone staying in the area! It was so nice to have a home for my son to relax in and not just a motel room. The owners responded quickly to all our questions. The only complaint was that the thermostat was locked on 76 degrees. I would have liked it a little cooler but with the ceiling fans going, we survived. We are very grateful we had this rental option available to us!
