  • Great Place


    The Condo was clean and tidy. The kitchen had most utensils for making meals. It was close to town and not too far from the tubing waterpark.

    The beds however were very firm and the upper area where the mater bedroom is was very warm. There is a small floor fan but it did little to help with the heat.

    From the owner: "Thanks so much for visiting. I just purchased brand new mattresses (med firm). I also had my ac units checked and everything is working perfect. I was told it’s unfortunate heat rises and when it’s 90+ outside it’s very hard to keep homes cool. All units are working over time. Hope you come back and visit."



    It was my first time ever staying in Helen.

    It was out of a story book!!

    Staying at the condo so close to all the action was the best part.

    The condo was absolutely perfect.

    Modern Swiss Alps vibes.

    I can’t wait to go back!

    Upstairs AC did not work so was very hot while dressing and sleeping. The rest of the house felt nice. The main floor shower had NO HOT WATER AT ALL but the sink was very hot. No other issues at all!

    Hi Kim, thanks for taking the time to review your stay. After reading your feedback, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    - We recently invested $3,000 in upgrading the insulation in the attic. This improvement has made a noticeable difference in maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout the house, even during the hot weather. We also thoroughly inspected the A/C unit after your visit and confirmed that it was functioning properly.
    - We're sorry to hear you experienced warm water instead of hot water during your stay. We had just replaced the shower, and while the water was warm, we understand it didn't meet your expectations. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this and will double-check the water temperature for future guests.
    Once again, thank you for bringing these matters to our attention. Your feedback is valuable, and it helps us improve the overall experience for our guests.
