About Melvin & Chernda Pendleton ( owners )

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.

Melvin & Chernda Pendleton ( owners ) purchased this house in 2004

The property had a number of problems, many calls were made to the property manager with no response. The heating and AC were locked. We left the house in good condition and the property manager made false accusations to keep our damage deposit.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We try to please our guest. We don't due false charges. 1. You pulled the lockbox from the wall for the ac. This caused damage to the wall. 2. The BBQ grill wasn't put back in the place. 3.You ignored the rental agreement about number of guests allowed with your visit. every guest is different. 4. The outdoor camera was tampered with. These cameras is for your security and the property . We like our guest to be happy and safe. Have a wonderful day.

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay here. There is plenty of room for everyone in the spacious house. So close to the NIM and Fort Benning. Right up the street is a Walmart and CVS. Perfect location for people coming to visit their soldiers and don't want to get a hotel room. The owners are super nice and helpful. House is beautiful, comfy, and is equipped with everything you will need for your stay. Many memories were made sitting around that kitchen table with my family laughing, joking, and playing games. We would rent again in a heartbeat! I 100% recommend this place if you are considering a house instead of hotel. You will not be disappointed!

Great place, clean and cozy. We had a group of 8 people and this house had plenty of space. We were in town for our sons graduation at Fort Benning and this house was within 5 minutes of the gate. We received our deposit the same day we checked out. Thank you!

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
