1st time VRBO Rental Experience! Would Rent Again !

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO/Home Away. The Owner (Kimberly) is very responsive and made the rental process completely stress free. Her response time had a large factor in choosing her property to rent for my family vacation.

Regarding the home, it is a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a full private heated pool area. House is well maintained and my family was happy with the home. The fenced in back yard looks to be a new 6' tall privacy fence, which is different than what the pictures show on VRBO/ Home Away.

Upon Arrival we were greeted with a nice hand written Thank You Note, and a tray of breakfast bagels and English muffins, as well as a quart of Orange Juice. Very unexpected, Thank You Kimberly!!!!. This was a very helpful/kind gesture, since we arrived after the sunset for the evening, and a grocery store visit was out of the question until the next day.

If anyone is looking at renting this property, I would put a deposit down now!! I only say this because once people find this place, it will be a hot spot, and hard to find time that fits your vacation rental needs. I know that i would re-book this place in a heart beat, no questions asked! It is close to several major grocery stores and local food establishments.

All in all, this was a successful and enjoyable vacation! Large part was due to the Owners quick response times to any/all questions during our stay.

I would highly recommend this property and using VRBO &/or HomeAway to rent this property.

Thank you again Kimberly for making our stay an amazing one!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The home is well taken care of and beautifully furnished. Kimberly was prompt in responding to queries. She has helpful information posted in the home, including a big folder with menus of local restaurants and things to do and see. It is close to the grocery store. The game room is a big plus and has so many games for adults and kids. The pool is deep as Kimberly warns but it is clean and there are life vests available for the kids. All of my family loved it and hardly wanted to leave at the end of the vacation! I would definitely return.
