Best ever stay in Helen!
We just returned from a 2 night stay in Helen at this condo. It was absolutely perfect. The location is so close to everything that we could walk. We never even got in our car. The condo was spotless. The decor was so nice, we all just loved it. Kela was just as fantastic, she was so easy to deal with and made our stay perfect. We would highly recommend staying here and would definately return.
Perfect location in downtown Helen! Clean and beautifully decorated with coziness and comfort in mind. Wonderful reviews from all past renters! Thank you for your rental and consideration!
Convenient, Clean, & Spacious
Great Stay! Owner was super responsive to answer questions and address any minor issues that arose during our stay.
Amazing space and location
Owner was so nice, place was clean and in walking distance of town! We enjoyed it so much! We will definitely be back
The condo overall was nice. However the refrigerator was broken. They added a replacement refrigerator that looked like it came from a dumpster or the back of a warehouse. It was disgusting on the outside and inside. It was rusted as well. We did not even wantvto put food in it after we cleaned it with bleach. It did NOT keep the food very cold at all. There were dead bugs on the floors on the main level. We could not access the heat for the bottom room because I guess the thermostat was in the King suite that we did not use or have access to. We were not aware that because we did not pay for that room, there would be no heat at the bottom. So no one even used to room with the bunk beds because It was freezing. They need to clean all the dust from the vents. Fix the holes in the wall in the half bath that someone stuffed tissue in I guess so we would not see the hole. Please fix the peeling paint in the shower in the bathroom upstairs.
However, through the bad stay Lillie was very responsive. When we locked ourselves out, she responded right away. I definitely would NOT stay here again but I did like that Lillie was responsive when I contacted her.
We appreciate your feedback. The fridge broke in the middle of the holidays, and in order to accommodate Jenny's last minute booking just at the end of this busy season, we hurried to find a temporary replacement fridge for these final couple of days of the holiday season. Helen is a small town, and our last minute fridge options were limited. We did our best to communicate all of this, and to be responsive to Jenny's needs. Since Jenny's stay, we have replaced the fridge with a new one, and are in the middle of several updates to the property. I wish we had known about the issues with the heat, as we do have a handy man on call that could have come to help adjust the temperature. This property has been a vacation rental for a number of years, and wear and tear is natural. We do repairs and updates as frequently as is necessary. And I'm happy to say we have done just that. Again, thank you for your feedback, it is always valuable to hear how we can improve.
Great location in downtown Helen
We had rented this townhouse before in July 2013 under the previous owner. This was a great place to stay in downtown Helen. It is an awesome location where you can walk to everything and Betty's Country Store is across the street. The beds are soft and comfortable. This is a great place for couples because there are two king sized beds with their own bathrooms. If you plan on cooking during your stay I would recommend bringing extra dish towels and dish cloths as there were only one of each and maybe some baking pans. I brought my instant pot to make quick and easy meals there. We did have an issue with the fireplace but it was quickly resolved the next day. When we were there the fridge was out of commission and a smaller basic one was in its place. Not sure if if they were waiting on a replacement part for the old one or not because the old one was at the bottom of the stairs on the second floor. If we stay again in Helen we would definitely stay here again!
While there are some things that need to be updated in this property, the owner, Ms. Liliana, was a delight. Our family of 9 found this location to be IDEAL for a visit to Helen. The arrangement worked comfortably for our group, and the issues that need to be updated did not create any problems for us. We did report them by phone to Liliana, so that they could be corrected if she had incoming guests after our departure. We parked our cars upon arrival and did not even crank them again until we were leaving at the end of our visit. All in all a very happy Christmas gathering in Helen, and we will likely visit again.
Other Activities: hiking, tons of kids activities
