We live in Northern California and have met many friends in the surrounding areas.

Duane Papais purchased this townhome in 2011

We choose this area due to how peaceful it is, the clear skys (the stars at night are wonderful) and the abundance of wildlife throughout the area and the proximity to all the activities we enjoy.

MIXED REVIEW

  • 3 of 5
My review is mixed.
Pros: Nice view of fairway,quiet,comfy beds and ac worked well.
Cons:
bottom sheet on 2 of the beds were torn at the seams, one sheet had hole in it, towels in one bathroom clean but worn and stained.
Master bathroom shower was not clean on arrival-had hair on the floor (pubic?)
kitchen had no pot holders or tea kettle
Manager (Duane) changed our reservation with no notice from another townhouse to this one.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you have a mixed review when all of our guest have had a great experience, but we do appreciate your feedback. As our property is managed by Duane/property manager, we can not control guests being moved between units (all have same floor plans etc). I have forwarded your comments about the shower etc. to the cleaning service. As for the sheets/towels, we do have multiple sets of sheets and towels for each bedroom in case of situations like this. Wanting this to not happen again, we made a special trip up this weekend to replace the torn sheet set, remove bleached towels, and left a new tea kettle. Thank you

GREAT PLACE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Murphy. The "cabin" is actually a fully equipped 2
story fully furnished town home with three large bedrooms and three full
bathrooms. It's located right on a golf course with a great balcony
surrounded by trees. It has everything you need is beautifully decorated and
very clean. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Murphysattractions are the Calaveras Big Trees Park with its magnificent Sequoia
trees, caverns you can explore and even a zip line. Every restaurant (even
the 'not-so-fancy ones') we went to had great food. We stayed with friends and
had a designated driver. We had a blast going to Murphys and visiting wine
tasting rooms! They are all located at Main Street so you can walk the
whole tour and meet people who also like to have a great time. Some of the
restaurants waive the corkage fee for wines purchased locally. We had a nice
dinner and enjoyed some of the wines we purchased that day. This was such a
fun trip all around, we are definitely coming back!

Your home is lovely! There were 6 adults so having three master suites was perfect. The views to the golf course were very nice too. We were there to attend a wedding in Murphy's so your home was the perfect location. I would recommend your home to others. It was clean, comfortable and modern. It had all that we needed to entertain. Thank you for sharing your home with us - we would definitely come and stay again.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at the Drouby condo. We had three couples. Everything was perfect. However, we did have problems trying to figure the TV out. That really wasn't a problem as we weren't that concerned about watching TV. The condo was clean and very well arranged. The beds were very comfortable We will defiantly rent it next year in May. If possible, we will try and get there before next year.
Yes, we would recommend this condo to our friends.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our townhome. Your comment about the TV would explain why I saw cables moved around on the living room TV. Rest assured, I made sure all of the TV's were working the last time we were there (for those that would like to watch TV).

Thanks again and look forward to hosting you (and your friends) again soon!

MURPHY'S TOWNHOME

Murphy's townhome
  • 4 of 5
The townhome was clean and nice. The golf course is lovely. The only negative is that the pool was driving distance (not walkable) and cold, never heated.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our townhome and the golf course. You are correct, the pools are a short 1 minute drive from our townhome as they are shared by all homes in the association. Due to the normal high temperatures we have in this region, the pools are not heated. Memorial Day is the first weekend the pools are open and with it being unseasonably cool, the pools were cool that first weekend. The good news is the homeowners association is looking to add heat to the pools.

We are going up this weekend and look forward to enjoying the pool and other ammenities the assoication provides.

Thanks again and look forward to hosting you again soon!

The property was clean, quiet and comfortable. It had a good feeling when we entered the property and we felt very at home. We had a problem with the WI-FI but the owner handled it within the hour. I would highly recommend this property. The view out the living room windoow was like being in a tree house, very relaxing.
