About Elizabeth Beaver
My name is Liz and I work for Jake Ray the owner of the house. Jake is usually away on travel so you will likely be meeting with and working with me as your visit comes closer to a reality. The apartment at Azalea House was built for Jake's sister in 1999 after she became paralyzed in an accident in Atlanta. After about 10 years the apartment was no longer needed and the entire area was renovated with newer materials (wood, granite, etc) and to serve as quarters for a live-in nanny. After Jake's divorce in 2015 the space converted to a guest house for friends and family traveling through the area - in July of 2018 I convinced Jake that it would be a great short term rental and he said go for it! I am married have a two year old daughter and my husband is serving in the US Army. I have worked for Jake for three years and you could not find a more laid back yet driven and successful guy. If you meet him you are sure to love him. Jake purchased this house from his ailing father in 2010 and it (the house) has been in his family for nearly 40 years. Jake lives upstairs with his trusted English bulldog flash and from time to time is joined by his two great kids.

Lovely apartment close to Hershey
The apartment was perfect for our Hershey Park stay with just about a 10 minute ride to the park. There were many restaurants nearby and the house itself was in a nice quiet location. At first we thought we were in the wrong spot because the house was so nice! The listing kept stressing how much space there was and I didn’t believe It until I saw It. We were pleasantly surprised to walk in and see a gigantic ping pong table in front of us. Any questions I had were answered very quickly through the Vrbo app. Will definitely look up this rental when we go back to Hershey!
Very large and accommodating
Jake was very good at leaving detailed information regarding check-in and giving us contact info. He was very welcoming to allowing us to use his deck, grill, fire pit, and outdoor space. The apartment was large and fit our family of 6 with no difficulty. The kitchen had all we needed to cook meals. The apartment and linens were all clean and well kept and the kids enjoyed the use of the pingpong table. Would definitely stay here again
Weekend in Hershey July 2019
Thank you for a wonderful weekend in Hershey ~ accommodations were great! Comfortable, clean, COOL rental in a lovely rural neighborhood!
Would definitely recommend to others!
Truly a private and clean home away from home!
My daughter had a dance competition at the Hershey Lodge Convention Center and this home was only 5 minutes to the lodge and 10 minutes to Hershey Park and other attractions! My wife, daughter and I stayed here during 4 quiet and comfortable evening located in a beautiful neighborhood with no traffic.
We were greeted with our own private, well lighted, and electronically secured entry door (so no worry about loosing keys). Near the entrance are chairs and a fire ring for a perfect evening outside or just roasting hotdogs and making s’mores. The place is huge with very accommodating decor and features that include a ping pong table, a variety of books, a few games, treadmill, and very comfortable central air-conditioning and heat.
It has a fully functional kitchenette with storage, full size refrigerator/freezer, cooktop, sink, toaster, electric can-opener, and a variety of coffee and tea making devices along with a basket of coffees and teas that will suit anyone’s preferences. The dinette area had a large table with plenty of seating for a gathering. The owner left no stone unturned - in fact, anything we inadvertently left at home we found available in the home, including a hair dryer, shampoos and shower gels, shaving cream, books, and many other things the owner thought of that might be forgotten! All four beds (including the sleeper sofa in the family room) had plenty of outlets nearby to plug in electronic devices and chargers, and the WiFi Internet speed was excellent for streaming and anything we wanted to do online - and with no problems signing in. Wait, did I forget to mention the really unique kid’s playroom/fort with a bed in it? It is small, but perfect for any toddler or preteen who wants to have their own place to hang out or even sleep. The entire place was very clean with hardwood and tile floors and nice area rugs.
There is much more I could say about the place, but importantly, we have stayed in many private rentals and this one tops our list. The owner was incredibly kind and accommodating from start to checkout. Very easy to communicate with via text, email, or phone. He even contacted us when the electricity went out after a storm to let us know he would get us some electricity with a generator if we needed it. We had a great stay and felt just as rested as if in our own home watching TV, sleeping or relaxing. We WILL rent again if back in the Hershey area. Thank you Jake!
This was the perfect place to stay for me and my family. The place was just what we were looking for and was so spacious and nice for my boys, my mother and I. We will definitely be back.
