My husband and I built this home and have loved every minute of our life here. We recently bought a farm and are not ready to sell this home.

There are many windows and open space that always made us feel a bit like we were on vacation in Florida, which we love.

Our desire is that people are blessed and at peace while in our home as we have been.

We have 3 grown children and 7 grandchildren.

We are thankful to the Lord for His Goodness to us as we have had many wonderful interesting experiences in our lives.

Bing, my husband and I have been married for 38 years.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home was truly a home away from home. Our 2 year old grandson had eye surgery. We went to Akron from Dayton, Ohio and Leesburg, Virginia two days early to give our grandson an opportunity to enjoy the home, inside and out. We all enjoyed the relaxing environment during a very emotional time for our family. After the surgery, this home was a blessing for all of us. We were able to support each other, prepare our meals at "home," and relax while the healing started. His surgeon was very pleased with his progress when we went for the first check-up. I would highly recommend this home for any family, but especially for families in search for a home near any of Akron's hospitals.

PERFECT FOR OUR VISIT!

  • 5 of 5
My sister, my father, and my 2.5yr old daughter and I rented the house when we came to visit relatives who live throughout the area. It could not have been more perfect for our needs. We were immediately impressed upon entering the house -- it's incredibly open and spacious with tons of natural light. I was at first put off that there is no TV in the large main room (there is one in the small sun room, with a small couch, but this would not have accommodated all of us at once) -- but I quickly realized this was a major plus rather than a con. Not once in our 4 day stay did my daughter ask for "her cartoons". Out of sight, out of mind :) (Had we wanted them, however, the house has a very large VHS collection.)
Everything was extremely clean and neat and logically organized. There are small labels everywhere that give helpful tips about operating various things. The back deck and back yard provided hours of family fun, and we also enjoyed grilling burgers. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood.
The only "downfall" for me was that the master bedroom bed is a "water tube" bed. It's not the typical water bed one would imagine, but rather it has some sort of water tubing running through it. I found it lacked support (I am 6 months pregnant) and feels generally like a sagging mattress that is low in the middle. My sister, who shared the bed, did not have as much issue with it as I did, but it was still an unusual thing to find.
Overall this place is absolutely fantastic! If we are back in the area we will definitely stay here again!

GORGEOUS HOUSE IN QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD WITH EVERY KITCHEN TOOL IN THE UNIVERSE.

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic house in Tallmadge, Ohio. We would gladly rent this house again, if it is available. There is a second rental area in the basement that was occupied by a nice couple. This house could easily sleep 6 on the floor we rented alone, maybe more with couches etc. It's a great house. Beautifully clean and clear instructions taped in conspicuous places. Even getting onto the Wi-Fi was easy. Thank you so much, Karen!

IN FOR FUNERAL

  • 5 of 5
My father-in-law passed away in his sleep the night before Father's Day. We were notified Sunday morning and needed to be in Akron for the viewing on Thursday. Sunday afternoon I began checking potential lodging for a possible 6 adults and 2 children. As my siblings all live in the Akron area, we decided to stay a few extra days to visit them as well. Hotels were expensive and, when looking for someplace to let the children (6 yr old & 3 yr old) have relaxing downtime, I went looking for vacation rentals. We have used them in the past and enjoyed them.

We were actually referred to this owner by her sister, whose rental I had inquired about. The owner (we talked with Karen) was amazingly helpful, enabling us to get everything lined up in a very short amount of time. Everything from the website listing was correct - there were no disappointments.

Both of our families were amazed at our finding such a beautiful vacation rental in this geographical area. We were able to provide a space for my husband's family to gather after the funeral. As everyone came from a distance - Seattle WA, Mississippi, United Kingdom, Connecticut & Kansas - the others were all in sterile hotel rooms. As we spread out thru the living space, some even went to the back deck with cameras to watch the birds. It was a calming, peaceful environment to relax together after the emotional stress of the funeral.

My siblings all gathered together for the first time in years on Sunday, including my sister who is wheelchair bound. With the short access into the house, we were able to use a portable ramp for her chair. What a blessing to be together again! They have already decided that we will rent the house when we are able to get back home again. :)

On Saturday we and our son & family went to Cleveland to the aquarium. The girls had a wonderful time - especially finding Nemo, Marlin and Dorrie. On Monday we went to Geneva-on-the-Lake and spent a wonderful afternoon with one of my sisters and her husband. The girls also enjoyed watching the chipmunks come to the fountain for drinks. We don't have chipmunks in Kansas.

The house was a wonderful blessing at a very difficult time in our family's life. The owner kindly answered all our questions - by phone or by email - without making us feel like we were a bother. I would gladly recommend this property to anyone - friend or relative.
