About David

I'm a Realtor in Marietta, GA with RE/MAX Greater Atlanta. I've been in real estate as an owner/investor for over 30 years. I have vacation properties and rental properties in Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee. Having vacation property in several vacation resort areas allows me to get away from work as well as provide a nice property for others to use. I love my work and helping people learn the value and reward of real estate ownership. I like to play golf, travel, and spend time with friends. I truly hope your stay at 'REST ASSURED' is a most memorable experience. Relax and Enjoy - 'REST ASSURED'

David purchased this cottage in 2007

Why David chose Tennessee

I purchased 'REST ASSURED' a 2 bedroom cottage in Pigeon Forge, TN, as a compliment and diversity to other resort properties that I own. Also....LOCATION, only two blocks off the main drag. But, away from the hustle and bustle. One level living, two car garage, and walking to attractions are the 3 most attractive features. It is two blocks off the strip (Traffic light #1), and access to the public transit system and other activities of Pigeon Forge. It is all one level, and has a garage, which is unique to the other rental properties available in the area. I feel like this offers desirable features that are not available in other properties...Close to Dollywood and Gatlinburg...Mountains, fishing, golf, theaters, restaurants, amusements, factory outlet shopping, skiing....a little bit of everything or a lot of nothing. Your choice..Please enjoy and relax at 'REST ASSURED'.

What makes this cottage unique

'REST ASSURED'--Quite, clean, safe, spacious, ALL ONE LEVEL, enclosed garage parking, swimming pool (Mid April-Oct 1) , and walking distance to restaurants, theaters, amusements/attractions, and public transportation. 3-4 miles to Dollywood.

Quiet little home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved rest asuured! Was a beautifully furnished home for us and our 2 little ones! We had the pool to ourselves during the days, which was so nice and clean! The spa looked a little abandoned but we weren't interested in it anyway. We had a nice garage to keep our car in and washer and dryer to wash all our laundry before we left. The King size bed in the master bedroom was pretty hard, so my husband was hurting most of our stay. The Master bath is huge which was awesome! Was a beautiful home to stay for our little vacation. Thank you again and would love to return soon!

Enjoyed my stay!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at Rest Assured! It was close to the strip in Pigeon Forge yet far enough away from the traffic sounds. The teenagers really enjoyed the pool! The cottage was big enough for 6 people easily!! Will definitely be back!

Rest Assured We WILL BE BACK...Convenient Location..No winding, mountain Roads, Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at REST ASSURED and we will definitely stay there again when visiting Pigeon Forge. It was so close to the strip, convenient to everything and a very nice and clean home. AND an added bonus is a garage to park in complete with opener. We couldn't have felt more at home than at REST ASSURED. The king size bed was just like ours at home! We never had time to try out the jacuzzi tub. We were directly across from the pool and hot tub and never used them, either. I'm not sure if the hot tub is in working order and the pool was a little chilly and a tad bit dirty. When standing at the pool you can see KING KONG at the wax museum. Also, when sitting at the kitchen table, you can see the tethered balloon behind Wonderworks, go up and down. We were disappointed we couldn't use the gas fireplace, but for some reason all the places we have stayed in the area do not allow them to be used for certain months of the year. David, can you tell me why that is? It's not just your place so must be an ordinance. Oh we had a huge walk in closet, too, which was great for all our suitcases and bags. The wifi worked great. The only thing we would have liked was some written instructions on how to use the remotes for the tv and a tv guide and specific instructions on how to lock the front door if we had used it. We always came in/out via the garage...that was awesome! Also, handy would be some hangers in the closets. I took some of my own, but it would have been nice to have some extra for some things. David was easy to work with and it was raining when we arrived and we had been to the Bluegrass BBQ festival and were a little wet so I texted him and asked if we could arrive a couple hours earlier than planned and he said, sure, the place was ready for us! He was so accommodating and answered my texts when I needed to ask him something. Very Nice residential neighborhood. You could not even tell that the strip was just about 1/4 mile traffic noise, no traffic going past your home. Very quiet area. If you like to go for walks, there's a nice cemetery close by. Home is on flat land, so no parking on a hill. Beautiful, clean home...we WILL BE BACK!! Our new favorite home away from home in Pigeon Forge!! Thank you David for offering your home for others to enjoy!

Good location, Garage Bonus, size decent

  • 3 of 5

Overall, ok. Disappointed about community pool and Jacuzzi not being operational for sometime, felt mislead by pictures and write-up. There is a Jacuzzi tub but that is not the same as outside amenities. The unit needs a deep cleaning and could really be improved with paint. The unit has no K-cups capability so I felt as though this should be announced and coffee filters be provided as minimum so tenants only have to buy ground coffee. Lots of competition exists so not sure I'd consider again.

Cute rental, needs improvements

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location for a Dollywood vacation and were comfortable in the house. Master mattress is very firm, but that's a personal preference for many. Garage was very nice and clean as well.

We had intermittent TV signal throughout our stay each day and could barely tolerate the viewing in mornings before we left and evenings when we got back (including a national championship game). Owner did make contact with Xfinity to attempt to resolve, but had nobody on site to handle this utility offer with the company. No discount was offered to us for this inconvenience., which was a bit surprising. Not really concerned with making the experience "right" any further than a phone call evidently.

The unit had a series of 10 cracked tiles in the kitchen, stains throughout on the dark carpet (which means they are really stained), marks/scuffs on nearly every wall, no permanent hangers in the master closet, mildew on the master shower curtain, and a back patio that looks like it has never been pressure washed. I have photos of everything and did not make any of this up.

The property owner works in real estate and should hold a little higher standard for the condition of the interior if you ask me.

Owner's Response: Jake....I'm so sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. As far as the comments and reviews: The TV issue was a Comcast problem. Comcast had to come to the property, and would not come out unless someone was there. And the guest could not be there to allow Comcast to come out. It was not a total outage, but unfortunately the bad reception was during the final four basketball playoffs, so his reception was not good for those games. I went to the property several days later, met Comcast there, and they resolved their problem. It was a problem with the main cable in the area. I also installed 2 new (and larger ) flat screen TVs while I was there. The cracked tiles is really a picky issue. It is a hairline crack in a few of the tiles in the kitchen. (a normal settlement crack that has been there for years) The shower curtain liners are replaced regularly when they need replacing, and the carpet is also cleaned on a regular basis. Unfortunately these items are not perfect or new at all times. The carpet is due for replacement soon. I have a very good cleaning person now. She is very conscientious and does a great job. The pool and the hotub are controlled by the association complex. The pool is open, and should be should be in top condition. The hotub has been taken off of my list of amenities and out of my rental agreement, because the association has not continuously kept it operational. It may or may not be in operation. I apologize for this, but it is out of my control. I have always strived to keep the property in top condition. I believe the vast majority of the positive reviews show that and that I respond quickly to problems. There are always those that cannot be pleased. In 8 years of rental (hundreds of guests), I have had 4-5 (minor) complaints. I also have many repeat guests who have been coming for years and are very satisfied. Again, sorry that you were not satisfied with your stay. I always want my guests at Rest Assured to have a positive and memorable experience. David 
