    5/5

    Though we were very hesitant to try, we jumped in and reserved the Magnolia Cottage for the week of Thanksgiving. WHAT A WONDERFUL CHOICE!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Yes, there were a few hiccups (the heat upstairs had a hard time keeping up with the cold snap, one shower wasn't on par for water pressure, and the fridge in the kitchen didn't work). But, Alma, our host partner was right there for anything we had questions or concerns about. The scenery was beautiful, and the home was well-appointed. We didn't have enough washcloths and I offered to buy some when we went to shop for the week of food. The 2 packs of washcloths and some extra yummy snacks were dropped off at the front door before we even left for the store. The cottage is well located to everything we needed. The feeling of care and satisfaction is a priority with this location. The kitchen was around the corner from the laundry room where there was an extra fridge, so it was a tiny inconvenience, but everything was so clean and ready for our week. All supplies for a stay you would expect from a hotel were well stocked. The pool was too cool, but what a lovely setting. There were 2 beautiful stained-glass windows in this open-plan home. We will be staying again next year if our schedule allows! I absolutely would recommend this home and this business to anyone for a wonderful stay!

  • DO NOT RENT HERE

    1/5

    We rented this house for a large group of family traveling from Colorado, Louisiana and Mississippi. When we arrived, there were people in the house! The crazy part was the owner (Alama) had already reached out to us and said to call her when we were 30 minutes away so she could meet us at the house. She gave door codes and all. After hours of confusion and family that were displaced and exhausted from travel, the owner told us she wouldn’t make the people in the house leave. She literally told us “I don’t know what to tell you”. She told Evolve ( her own managing company for the property she has listed) the very same thing after they told her that there are no reservations for the people in the house. After being told that the confirmation number that the guest gave her ( so she said) was false,she still wouldn’t correct the situation! We ( with Evolve) came to the conclusion that the owner allowed friends to stay there unaware she already had renters. We had elderly that were displaced until 11 pm! We not only were billed for the house but had to pay for all our family to stay in scattered hotels at lengthy distances from where our family birthday venue was located. We are waiting on our refund now. This was a complete nightmare! We have stayed in Vrbo’s all over and we have never had any issues this!

  • Great support and responsiveness

    4/5

    Alma and her team were super responsive via text and call from the day we arrived to checkout time. The place was pristine with great bedding and all the essentials in the kitchen. If we needed anything, Alma was responsive with repair, supplies and recommendations.
