We (10 girls) rented Deanna's amazing house for a last girls' weekend before 2 of us get married and we had a great time! The house is amazing, it seems to go on forever, exploring the house the first night we got there was one of the best parts of the weekend. First of all, location is great, I liked that the house is in a gated community but there's plenty of trees and space between houses that you get a secluded feeling. The house itself is awesome! There's a yoga studio, a sun room, front and back deck, hidden bedroom, etc. The whole house was clean and nicely furnished, bathrooms were pristine, and there were fresh linens in every room plus plenty extra in the closets as well as welcome baskets with snacks and drinks! The baskets and bottle of wine were a super nice touch that we all appreciated.
The house has just about everything you could ask for. We just wanted a low key weekend and planned to make meals at home. The pantry is well stocked, and anything can be found at the Giants grocery store nearby. The kitchen has plenty of cookware and dishes and glasses, cutlery, anything you need. We didn't get a chance to use the grill or fire pit but it would have been fun to make s'mores.
There are TV's everywhere! This was great, we just had movies running in the background while we played games or cooked. While we chose to stay at the house most of our stay, there are a lot of things to do in the area, we contemplated going roller skating or go karts or mini golfing. There are a lot of restaurants and some nice bars as well, Deanna includes suggestions in her house manual (There is a library bar!). We did check out the community lake, that was really nice, there's a small beach and playground that even us 10 adults had a great time at. It's also a nice spot to bring a picnic basket, there are plenty of picnic tables. Unfortunately the pools were not yet opened for the summer during our stay but we had fun laying out on the deck instead.
Deanna is great! She was very thorough in the days leading up to our arrival about do's and don'ts of the house and answering all our questions. She was quick to respond to us during our stay with any information or help we needed. We really could not have asked for a more perfect weekend, the house exceeded our expectations and Deanna is a great hostess!
