We stayed for our daughter's graduation from SMU and the house was perfect to accommodate family from near and far. We had plenty of room to gather and celebrate. Our daughter was just blocks away in her SMU apartment so was convenient for her also. We walked to a wonderful park with the little kids and visited Snider Plaza's shops and Kubys for the best pimento cheese one the planet. We highly recommend this beautiful, spacious, generous home.

Lovely house and a perfect fit!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a few families for a football game October 2016. The place is lovely and in a great location! We loved having our own space for the adults and the children. The owner was easy to work with and the house had all the amenities we needed. Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Beware of large

  • 1 of 5

This home was in a great location & lovely as presented in photos.

It is rated low because:

1) Parking was limited on the street in front of the home, and the owner wasn't willing to provide abscess to the gate leading to driveway and garage. She told us that we could park down the street at the grocery store (which had 3 hour limit, so we were moving cars around all weekend to avoid being towed. Within one hour of arrival, neighbors were telling us we couldn't park on street.

2) Non Refundable "Reservation Deposit" should be listed in VRBO as a non refundable cost. There was no mention of a non refundable deposit until a lease agreement was sent to me 3 months after I'd booked the reservation, and well after I had paid for the reservation in full. This lease agreement includes language, that is confusing as to how this "non refundable" deposit will be handled, and it wasn't clear to me.

To me, that term would either mean that it would apply to the daily rental rate or it would be refundable upon leaving home in good condition - also the same definition used by HomeAway. By the time I received the lease, we were already counting on this property, and per the owners "no refund policy", would have been out the entire rental payment if we hadn't signed lease. If I had caught this upon initial reservation, I would have chosen differently, and would not have signed such a lease agreement for a number of reasons. This large fee is too much for a weekend rental, and needs to be spelled out in the HomeAway / VRBO listing that it is not refundable and not applied to rent.
