It was very close to town. It had everything we needed to cook dinner and the jig size bed was very comfortable
Amanda S. Sep 2020
To begin, The Cons. As those are what people are looking for First.
There was no outside shelter available in or around the area. Hence, if it rains, you have to stay inside. 😪
The shower is small. A large person may have some issues. 😬
Dryer was broken. Preeeetty glad I didn't wash, but one load on the day we left. Bag of wet clothes, ✔. 😣
The bedroom gets a Little stuffy with the door closed.
The "pretty" pillowcases/comforter were 'pretty' Rough.
Finally, the Pros!
The home is beautiful. Loved the set up. Absolutely Perfect for couples. 💑
Peaceful, yet very near attractions. 🚣
You are only a small walk to the water, where you can picnic. Tables(near the water), ✔👌
The bed,itself, is extremely comfortable. And huge. 😳😍😴
I would, most definitely, book this room again. With or without the cons. 💯




Manager response:
Hi, Amanda! We apologize you felt the home was lacking in anyway. We are waiting for a part to arrive to repair the dryer and are sorry this negatively impacted your stay. Thank you!

Check in and Check Out are easy.
It is well-equipped and quiet. It is the bottom floor of a three-story condo with its own entrance. The water pressure is great. The bed was very comfortable. There is no access to the screen porch which the owner uses for storage. Parking is near the unit. While the unit does face the river, it isn’t close enough to benefit from the sound of the This is a great location near Helen activities, and quiet enough when you want to take a break. We slept really well here. This was what we needed.

Very nice apartment. You can't control air but they've compensated with fans and heaters so you can get a great temperature you want. Very comfortable like you're at home with Netflix or Vudo on TV. The shower is very small but not a deal breaker. Beautiful field that has the river. Great view or ability to get in and cool down. Definitely plan on coming back.
Deirdre I. Jul 2020
Central apartment that met our needs during Covid. Well-equipped kitchen and comfortable bed.
Allen K. Jul 2020
We were comfortable staying here. Not being able to control the A/C was not a problem. The apartment was very cool. Two things that could be addressed are the kitchen lighting, not nearly sufficient, and who puts a smoke detector almost directly above the stove? Cooking almost anything caused it to go off!
Kevin R. Jul 2020
Very cozy and nice to be able to walk right out the door and the river is right there. Enjoyed our stay very much.
Sana H. Jun 2020
the cleanliness was fine however, there are a few reasons I would NOT recommend this property. 1. The temp was warm this is the south its humid and they lock up the thermost I could not sleep in! 2. Lawncare was horrible tall grass all the way to the waters edge and a couple of raggedy chairs to sit in, bring your own. 3. Privacy the curtains were a joke you can see directly into the condo. 4. Washer was out of service. I would never pay to stay in this condo again.
Manager response:
Hello Sana, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have removed the washer and dryer from the unit. We do wish you would have contacted us during your stay regarding the lawn and air conditioning so we could have addressed it during your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience. We do hope you will give us another chance to impress you in the future.

We loved it all
Gary S. Jun 2020
After reading a review from November of 2019,I change my rating from 4 to a3 star because the washing machine and recliner is still broken.
The room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Gary! It is true the washer and dryer combo are not working at this time, and we apologize for the inconvenience. The recliner is in working condition. We hope to see you again so we can have another chance to impress you!
Kenneth R. Jun 2020

Lourdes C. Feb 2020

Carey B M. Dec 2019
This vacation home was very well situated as far as everything we wanted to see it was fairly easy to find and love that it was all on one floor it was well stocked with dishes and things like that was a bit cool but we had a heater it could do with a little updating but other than that it's a good place to hang up
DAVID S. Dec 2019
I NEVER write reviews, however this tops the WORST rental I have ever been to and I rent at least once a month, between work and pleasure. This unit is in the basement of a town home and the worst thing is there is NO individual thermostat, the upstairs unit controls it and it was HOT!!! Second, it was VERY dark, the only windows are the windows seen in the picture behind the couch in the living room. Lastly, the flooring above must be old, or poorly built because it sounded like elephants walking around the entire time we were in the unit...Thankfully it was not ofter.
Manager response:

Good direction and entry information given before arriving. Everything was very clean when arrived. Very Comfortable bed. Negative: Shower stall was very small even for an average size person. A large person could not use it at all I would say. Overall good rating.
Darlene H. Oct 2019
Clean and very nice place. Enjoyed our time.
Patricia R. Oct 2019
Very clean and close to town.
Tracy A. Sep 2019
It was beautiful and very relaxed and it is a wonderful place to stay for your anniversary, very clean
Benjamin H. Aug 2019
Super clean and right on the water for some fun
Amanda J. Apr 2019
It reminded me of "Aunt Kate's" house, although I don't have an aunt Kate, LOL. Very eclectic little place. My only concern was that I couldn't find the controls to the AC and it was freezing. Also, there's very little sound attenuation between floors, so if you're a grumpy old person, don't stay on the bottom floor.
Brian S. Feb 2019
very nice place to stay. there were 2 minor issues that we saw. 1) was shower was small 2) TV only had 10 or stations. very quiet place. we would stay there again
Manager response:
Hi Brian, we appreciate you staying with us. Actually, it is a smart TV, allowing you go sign into your own Netflix, Hulu and Amazon apps. Also VUDO is available for a list of free movies.
Aaron M. Nov 2018
