  • Perfect family getaway spot


    We really loved our stay in this home! There was a group of 10 of us (6 adults, 4 children ranging in age from toddler to 12) and this property had everything we were looking for. Bedrooms set up on each floor, plenty of bathrooms, fun game room for the kids and the lovely hot tub. Having the club rec center nearby was great for the indoor pool and basketball for the kids. About a 15 minute drive to shops and restaurants. Really pretty location, especially in the winter with the snow.

  • Great for a girls trip


    This house was great for 7 of us on this girls trip. Plenty of space for all of us, and the hot tub was a bonus!

  • Pictures were deceiving


    The house was very worn and not well taken care of. Carpeting was very dirty. Even bathroom throw rugs were not clean. Downstairs basement bathroom had a leak in the ceiling. I rook pictures it was obviously there for some time. Some electrical outlets were loose and pulled away from wall not accurately secured. Kitchen was very small with little counter space. I have been coming to Galena for 30 years and always have rented homes. Unfortunately this was one of the worst.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Josephine, we want our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we apologize if you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - The listing does clearly describe our property, but we are sorry if the home caught you off guard. We encourage guests to thoroughly review the listing before booking, to ensure they find the perfect vacation home for their needs.
    - We apologize that the carpets were dirty in a few places from the previous renters who spilled something on the carpet. We have hired a steam cleaning company to deeply clean all the carpets this week.
    - Also, the leak was due to a broken pipe in the wall which has now been repaired. The ceiling also has a patch and will be repainted this week. We could also not find any loose electrical outlets anywhere in the home.
    - While we do regret our home was not up to your expectations, we are happy to report that no issues were reported by the guests who stayed the following weekend.
    - Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Your feedback is important to us, and we appreciate the opportunity to address these concerns.

  • Guys get away


    Friends since high school, we get together a couple times a year, started when we were 50, 67 know, so 18th yr. VRBO is great! We can choose our location, amenities, local attractions, cook in or eat out. Galena is a great location, with lots to do in Galena and Dubuque.

  • Weekend with Friends


    As previously stated the beds are hard in this house. However, the place is well stocked with itrms you would need. The hot tub was clean. The screened in porch was wonderful for fresh air.

    There was plenty of space for us and our dogs.

    There are a few updates that could be done but overall a nice place to stay!
