About Kara FItzjarrald

We both grew up in Central Illinois. We raised our family on our farm and still currently reside in the same town. We have always loved to travel and golf.

Kara FItzjarrald purchased this villa in 2008

Why Kara FItzjarrald chose Galena

We decided to visit Galena for our anniversary after many recommendations. We fell in love. We started a tradition. One year when the Inn was full, they offered us a stay in a townhouse. We enjoyed the area so much that we decided to look into a place of our own. This particular villa attracted us because of the attention to detail and immaculate decorating that the contractor and interior designer put into it. Along with the many amenities that come with this villa, the backyard overlooks one of our favorite golf course views, a beautiful red barn.

What makes this villa unique

The Walnut Hill Villas are unique and include their own private pool just minutes from the front door. The wildlife, amenities, and relaxation make a stay at our home worth it's while.

Would not recommend!!

  • 1 of 5
This condo brought nothing but dissatisfaction. There are a list of issues that were not properly addressed by the owners which leaves me with the option to write a review so the next renter is prepared for what they are getting themselves into.
Firstly, the refrigerator in the unit did not function properly. It barely reached room temperature, let alone cold. I called the owners and Kara on Friday, and waited an hour before receiving any word back. She stated that she would handle it and update me. After a half hour with no word back, I called her again because my party and I had plans to go out that evening at 9pm. I received no information regarding the refrigerator issue until 12pm on Saturday, in which the owner told us that no one could be found to fix the problem. We had brought food and beverages which needed to be kept cold. We were told to buy ice as a solution. The owners are now stating there is no issue with the fridge and it was cold when they got there after we left, which is strange because it was warm when we got there and warm when we left. Changing the settings did NOT make a difference. We were there 3 days, and never once did the fridge get cold.
Secondly, the condo itself was in poor condition.
•The upstairs shower had hair in the drain, and had a film of grime on the bottom.
•The showerheads on the bottom floor were completely covered in calcium build up.
•Somebody, I’m assuming maintenance, left a tube of caulk on the couch.
•The dishwasher was not secured. When we opened the door to load it, the appliance came out from under the counter.
•The light above the kitchen table was covered in dust.
•A pair of neon green socks were found discarded under the bed downstairs…the list could go on
I would NOT recommend for anyone to stay here. For all the hassle we went through buying ice and throwing away groceries they would not compensate us. I have used HomeAway before and will never rent from Kara again. I am greatly disappointed how she handled the situation and lack of concern with the matter. Please stay away from this owner and condo, unless you want to be disappointed with a dirty condo and owners that do not care about the renters.

This villa is impressive...well kept, very clean, great location, and owners were so friendly. We have been going to Galena for the last 8 years and have rented through VRBO. This property is one that we will definitely stay at again. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Very nice home. Clean, nicely appointed and wonderful Territory location. Note: You walk in to a ground level foyer, you have two choices, you can up the stairs to the Master Bedroom or down the stairs to the living area, kitchen, second bedroom and bathroom. The second bedroom and bathroom is lovely and could easily be used as a Master Bedroom.

View ruined by lack of attention to details...

  • 2 of 5
Beautiful view and a beautiful home. Only disappointment was with initial cleanliness and lack of attention to details. Fireplace was left full of ash and old wood, old coffee was left in coffee pot and coffee grounds left in filter for who knows how long? Dirty dishes left in dishwasher and a few towels left in dryer. Countertops were sticky and dirty. Shower heads were caked with calcium build up. A few lightbulbs were out. View directly out back doors if two large orange work ladders strewn across the lawn (without workers around). I assume this was the fault of the cleaning crew but unfortunately reflects on owner. Tried to grill a few hot dogs only on the grill, and took over 40 minutes to get them warm enough to eat due to the fact that none if the burners were working properly. No WiFi or decent cell service in the area. Found out for a very minor amount of $ more, we could have rented a house. Put a slight damper on a romantic weekend, spending the first half hour cleaning up a supposedly "professionally cleaned" home. There are NUMEROUS rentals in the Galena Territory that I will be taking my chances on next time instead! As a group, we were renting several properties simultaneously, and we were the only ones that had to clean our rental in order to bring it up to standards.

Pleasantly suprised and very pleased

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect spot for our couples weekend away. It offered lots of privacy both inside and out. With one bedroom on the main level and one upstairs, both with adjoining bathrooms, it was the perfect layout. The home was very clean, cozy and well kept. Kara, the property manager was a pleasure to work with.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls getaway weekend, and the villa was the perfect place to return to after a day of shopping and site seeing. It is very tastefully decorated and comfortable - - with the weather being rainy, we felt much better about staying in and reading and relaxing being at such a beautifully appointed place. It's roomy for four, and the beds were comfortable. The only disappointment was not being able to get the DVD player to work, and we had rented a redbox movie from town to watch. They do, however have several preview channels so we were able to watch another movie on one of those stations. I could definitely see returning for a weekend with my husband and getting in some golf. Highly recommended place to stay while in Galena!
