Most Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 1, 2014

Sorry for posting this so late Jin!

1. Overall quality
Our group (party of 12) had a 1 night retreat at Jin's place and had the most relaxing time. The place was very spacious and the furniture, although not fancy, was in great condition. We used 4 out of 5 bedrooms but did not have any trouble accommodating all 12 of us. We were asked to maintain the temperature at 68F, which may be a little chilly for some, but blankets that were provided kept us warm enough for the night.

2. Activities
The place has a grill outside by the garage. We brought some charcoal and grilled sirloin, pork, and shrimp out in the terrace. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking - stove, fridge, sink, pots, dishes, cups, and utensils and etc. We cooked some Korean style soup, pancake, and rice, along with the grilled food for dinner.

After dinner, we gathered around the living room and talked, played some games and music. The noise was quite loud, but the neighboring houses were far enough so there were no complaints.

3. Interaction with Jin
Jin was very flexible and helpful in providing us the perfect house. Even though we made a last minute call, she did her best to accommodate our group.

Excellent Review- Long overdue!

I am originally from Ithaca, but have lived out of town for many years now. Each summer I plan a trip with friends of mine to visit Ithaca for a weekend wine tour. Finding a place for 10 + people is always challenging, but this property worked perfectly! The house is very close to downtown, so it's great for people looking for bars and restaurants and other things to do. Aside from the excellent proximity to town; this house offers scenic, peaceful, and tranquil surroundings.

The house itself was immaculate. The owner obviously takes very good care of the property, and provides guests with a clean and comfortable stay. I would highly recommend this house for anyone looking to visit Ithaca for the weekend, and we will be sure to choose Ithaca Vacation House again this summer!

Thanks Jin!

Great rental for a large family group

This was an easy and pleasant stay in Ithaca. We brought a large multi age group for an event at Ithaca College, and stayed comfortably in the two houses offered by this owner which are across the street from one another. It was definitely advantageous to have two houses so close together, and with their location quite close to Ithaca College The nearby jogging path and children's playground were well appreciated. The listing and photography is accurate, and the owner, was clear and very pleasant to rent from and to know.

enjoyable stay in a nice house

I enjoyed staying in a very nice house. I was just one person and took only a room, but enjoyed the house as well. The owner was very hospitable, and the house met my expectations in every way. I would highly recommend using these houses for your stay, as opposed to staying in a hotel.I will certainly stay here again.

My friends and I were in Ithaca for the weekend to attend a wedding. Jin is highly accommodating and the house is so lovely. It is very clean, and it was just perfect for our needs. It's very close to Ithaca College, so perfect if you're visiting the school. It's also very close to the commons which is nice. The location is wonderful, located also very close to a park and walking path. If you're looking for a place to stay, this is the one!
