What a great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great vacation home! In a beautiful upscale and safe neighborhood but you feel like you are in a secluded cabin in the woods! This chalet is so unique and so spacious! Very rustic and very comfortable!. The owner Mark was very responsive and very accommodating! Lots of windows, really enjoyed breakfast in the morning as the an entire family of deer visited each morning! Thank you for sharing your home!!

Left My Heart in Birmingham!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect location for our trip! We spent a lot of time in Birmingham and we found the drive very easy and convenient. Even though the house is in a rural setting it's very close to the interstate! Shopping was nearby and we were able to get groceries within a short drive. The house had plenty of space for all of us and had everything we needed. The breakfast nook had a great view looking down through the trees. Even saw some deer! Parking was easy with a lane that passed right through the property. We loved the downstairs with the bar and TV room in the back which was very comfy. It was sooo easy to book the reservation. Mark went out of his way to make the process as simple as possible. We hope it's available for the next time we head south!!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
Great Experience!!
Our group stayed in this large home in early-June and had a fantastic time. We took advantage of the full kitchen to cook meals and enjoyed the views from almost every room! There are a lot of stairs but I guess it was good exercise while we were there.
Mark was great to work with answered our questions right away. Helped us with booking and made the process very smooth. I'd love to come back as we have family in the area! (loved the ping pong table)

Unsafe home! Uncooperative and rude owner!

  • 1 of 5
This house is in extremely poor condition with major safety issues. My family just stayed here with children for 9 days. Fire hazards include: no working fire extinguisher; master bath tub spa has a uncovered, working electrical outlet within easy reach of children; every time we turned the oven on the power went out with no safe way to get to the breaker box. The outside deck is rotted through and is on the upper level (about 15 feet high) and is over concrete. The outside staircases are high and rotting with unsafe handrails. Extremely dangerous at night--no outside lighting. Inconveniences: light bulbs burned out (we replaced at least 10). The "steam shower" has no hot water accessible. The "bonus room" has no air conditioning. The washing machine doesn't work. There were 4 towels and no blankets when we arrived. All of the outside furniture is in bad repair (hammock, umbrella, chairs, table). There are no window coverings in the bedrooms. Bed sheets used instead!! The kitchen has broken dishes (not enough), and minimal and shabby linens. Many of the doors have non-working knobs. The inside staircase (3 levels) seem sturdy, but are not lighted and are uneven. Dangerous.

The owner was very rude to me from the first time I contacted him. The way he talked to me on the phone was unbelievable. He was rude. He shouted at me. He insulted me. He accused me of trying to take advantage of him. The "house rules" include threats of high fines for any infraction--too much garbage, using too much electricity, etc. I understand the need for control with a rental home, but the threats (i.e., "The allotment for electricity is $11.29 per day and if more is used you will be fined $300." "If you have too much garbage the fine is $300." "If you move furniture the fine is $275." etc. Happy to provide pictures of damage and copies of house rules for your review. The owner demanded a credit card number every time we spoke. I paid the full rental amount in advance with cash, so am concerned he wanted my credit card number in order to post unwarranted "fines". The house was unclean. I would not recommend this house to anyone. Our family has used VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owners) for 8 years. This is our first experience with a house in this poor condition and an owner this rude. Laci Cash, Atlanta

Owner's Response: THIS TRAVELER WAS CAUGHT TRYING TO SNEAK INTO THE PROPERTY A DAY EARLY! PLEASE CALL FOR DETAILS! THIS HOME IS COMPLETELY SAFE!! THERE ARE NO FIRE HAZARDS!! The house is new on the vacation rental market so all of the supplies are NEW, including linens, towels, plates etc. The hot water "problem" was simply a handle that came loose. The rules and regs go out to travelers before check-in, so she was well aware of our policies. I was NEVER contacted during the entire 9 day period about "unsafe conditions". She showed up on the property unannounced 2 weeks before arrival without permission and wrote.....
Mark: I'm in Birmingham and just looked at your house today. It's perfect. Is there a table for outside eating? I'm sending the check now. Sorry about that--had to wait for some money to get transferred.
HOMEOWNERS BEWARE OF THIS TRAVELER! VACATIONERS, CALL ME TO GET THE REAL STORY BEFORE YOU DISCOUNT THIS HOME!

This is the message she sent after checking out........ Mark: Thank you for renting us your house. We had a great time. When can I expect the deposit money returned to me? Thanks. Have a great day!
I GUARANTEE YOUR EXPERIENCE WILL BE NOTHING LIKE THIS TRAVELER DESCRIBES!
