    The house served our family well as we visited during our annual family gathering.

    The property is as you see it. It's spacious, clean, modern, with great light and a beautiful view of the sunrise. It's a 30 minute walk to the river in one direction and Yogaville in the other. It's comfortable and really has all that you need for a lovely time.

    So, why the 3 stars? I was literally contacted at least a dozen times from the time I made the reservation until check in. There was no need for that.

    I slept in the room nearest the heat pump and it sounded like a vacuum cleaner was running. It kept waking me up.

    There are a list of rules by the front door. It's "don't do this, don't do that." "Noise" hours are between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. because the caretaker lives downstairs and they can hear you. You can hear them. I felt like a naughty teenager trying not to disturb mom.

    There are also cameras all over. I would have used the porch, but there was no privacy. It's invasive.

    So, lovely property, but the vibe was one of distrust. I felt overly controlled and fearful of making a wrong move. It wasn't restful or relaxing at all. I get that you want your place to be safe and well cared for, but all the cameras and rules feel over the top.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Laura, thanks for taking the time to review your stay. After reading your feedback, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    - We want to clarify that we did not contact you a dozen times during your stay. Like with all our guests, we typically send a single email with an attached PDF containing important guest information as soon as we are notified of a booking. We apologize if there was any misunderstanding regarding communication.
    - We installed a six-foot folding metal gate in the closet to provide our guests with a secure space to hang their clothes and use the clothes hamper while also allowing us to safely store household supplies on the shelves. We apologize if this setup may have created any feelings of discomfort during your stay.
    - We are sorry that you found your sleep disturbed by unusual sounds and wish that you might have reported the problem as soon as you were experiencing loud mechanical noise. The HVAC that is outside and a floor below the main bedroom has been functioning normally, and the onsite host reported no unusual sounds.
    - The listing does mention the presence of three external security cameras so that our guests are fully informed before booking their stay.
    Once again, thank you for your review. Your feedback is valuable to us.

  • Lovely home


    Our family stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday, and we had a wonderful time! The house is so well stocked and every detail has been thought out. Beds and bathrooms were very comfortable and we loved the large living area. The owner was very communicative and sent us lots of advice about the home and the area!

  • Nice house to rent in Buckingham


    We came to Buckingham for a Thanksgiving family gathering and we needed a few more rooms. Karen's house was calm, comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked. Karen sent us a lot of information ahead of time about the house and it's surroundings. Overall, a very nice place for our family to rest and relax!!

    I was in town for business. The place was clean, homey and comfortable. I especially liked the lazy boy in the master bedroom. The property managers live below and helped me with shipping and receiving important packages while I was in town. I just can't say enough about how great this place was.
