This home was super clean. Fantastic location on Main St. And, right next door to Betty's store!!
Wendy C. Oct 2021
We loved being this close to town and able to walk everywhere. Being next door to Betty's was key too. The only draw back for us was not understanding how to work the TVs and the fire alarm went off randomly (but eventually did stop!) I would recommend this place though - super clean and you cannot beat this location!

Very clean, great little comfortable apartment actually. Great pressure in the shower! Looking forward to our next visit and already got reservations at Anna Ruby!

Mickey T. Jun 2021
We enjoyed the space and look of the home. It would be nice if the front door and the door to the bedroom had some way to block more light. Also a small hook to hang your hand towel and maybe a few to allow towels to dry between our use in the bathroom. We used some of the cookware and coffeepot and found them in working order-3 mugs when we got there. We walked nearly everywhere in town. If you want a slow pace and the chance for your kids to chase fireflies, this is your spot. We saw them each evening from the front porch.

And clean. Walking distance...we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

The place was very clean and nice. Right in the town center
Michael R. Nov 2020
This is a very nice property and super conventionally located on the Main Street through Helen, right next to Betty’s store. We were happy to stay there and found it to be the perfect launch point for visiting several of the North Georgia hiking trails. Overall, we were happy with cleanliness, but had some disappointments in how it was outfitted:
- No pots and pans,
- One not so great frying pan
- No dish towels,
- Only three coffee mugs and three forks…so had to we had to hand wash the dishes a few times
Also, because this is a VACASA managed property, you won’t find some of the nice touches that owner managed properties tend to provide (snacks, bottles of water, cooking supplies, tissue paper, etc.).
Finally, as the property is right on Main Street you do hear the auto and foot traffic noise passing through town during the day and early evening. Also, the tower bell in the church next door rings every 15 minutes from 9AM to about 8PM. Neither of these bothered us but if you are looking for a quiet place, this is not that.
Manager response:
Hi, Michael! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found it clean. The property manager will be checking on supplies to ensure everything we provide is in place, including dish towels. Thank you!
Dori M. Oct 2020
We absolutely loved the location of Anna Ruby. We loved walking all around Helen and being able to conveniently drop bags, get umbrellas, rest, etc. this is a very tight squeeze for 2 adults and 2 kids so I would definitely not recommend 4 adults. This condo is beautifully decorated and had all the needed amenities!
Kristy S. Oct 2020
The location was fantastic, the size and everything that came with the unit was perfect! The floors, however, were dirty and the sheets were dirty as well.
Manager response:
Kristy, we apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We are happy that you enjoyed the location and hope to host you again in the future.
Katie D. Oct 2020
We cannot say enough great things about this place! The location was perfect and the room was adorable. We loved everything about it. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend to anyone considering it.
Rob L. Sep 2020
This is a wonderful place. Quite yet convenient walking distance to downtown Helen. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a very clean and well maintained property. Two thumbs up!
Jennifer P. Sep 2020
Great location. Convenient to all downtown Helen activities, restaurants etc. Nice farmhouse decor. Only thing missing was ice maker in fridge. Would return to this property.
Blair V. Aug 2020
Very cozy rental. They had a little table our family plays games at. They provided extra blankets we used since it was chiller at night than what I’m used to. Would love to rent again.
Susan D. Aug 2020
Perfect place for my husband and I. We were within walking distance of everything. A place I would come back to relax and have the comforts of home.
Sha J. Aug 2020
Rental has been completely updated and was VERY clean!! The large, comfortable bed and strong water pressure in the shower were much appreciated. The rental is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown Helen. Overall, we were very pleased!

Wonderful VRBO. Looked like it was just remodeled
Ashley F. Jul 2020
The location is perfect. We barely used our car. Walk to restaurants, shops or activities. The condo is decorated so cute. It is right next to a grocery store so we just took a few steps and got everything we needed. Would stay again!
anthony r. Jun 2020
The room was very nice! Would recommend!
Earline M. Jun 2020
A Clean, Safe, and Quiet Place for our family of 4. So close to downtown Helen which makes it even better! Would definitely book again in the near future. My only wish was if the sofa bed was made available to us......
Renee W. Jun 2020
The house was adorable! Perfect for a couple. What made it even better was the location.
Curtiss P. Jun 2020
This condo was extremely clean and close to everything. Very nice. The only complaint was that the fire detector was chirping the ENTIRE time. The ceilings are very high and we couldn’t reach it. It made for no sleep for 2 days. We couldn’t get anyone on the phone to come change the battery. We were on hold for over an hour.
Manager response:
Curstiss, we're glad to hear that the condo's location served you well! We are so sorry for the disruption from the smoke detector, we will ensure that the battery gets changed out. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to have another opportunity to host you.
