Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I really loved the quiet location of this condo. The views of the lake are fabulous! It couldn't be more convenient to downtown and the lake- very nice. I love that we were able to bring our dog! The owners were very easy to work with. My only complaint is that the condo needed a good dusting (fans, baseboards, tops of doors, etc) and the bathroom floor really needed to be scrubbed. The rug in the bathroom was dirty and there was grime around the base of the sink and toilet.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here.

Awesome get away!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the yellow condo for the weekend and we loved everything about our stay. The decor was very cozy, relaxing and inviting. Just walking in made us happy! The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, utensils and all the little things we needed to make meals. The bed was very comfortable and the living room was an awesome place to sit, relax and enjoy the great view of the lake. We really enjoyed the fact that this condo feels like it is off the beaten path, but is very closely located to places like Walmart, gas stations and restaurants. We truly enjoyed our experience and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Hot Springs. We cant wait to come back!

Don't pass this up!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Yellow Condo this past weekend and it was absolutely lovely. It is a studio so if you're travelling with a child and prefer a little privacy, I wouldn't recommend it since it's so open, but for us it was perfect. I couldn't believe the gorgeous view of the lake from nearly every window in the place. It was so much better than any hotel I've ever been in and Ralph was a pleasure to work with. The area is so quiet you'd never know you're only about 3 tenths of a mile from Central Avenue and Walmart. It's truly the perfect location.

The biggest perks were the fact that the area is very quiet, there's covered parking, and no set check in/check out time.

The only complaints I have aren't really even complaints... More like a "heads up" for future renters. The listing says the kitchen is stocked with supplies but I wasn't sure what that really meant. There wasn't a napkin or paper towel to be found in the cottage so for our first meal we used wash cloths as napkins until we could get to Walmart for a roll of paper towels. There wasn't any dish soap so I just left our dirty dishes on the counter which I felt badly about. Since I cooked nearly every meal there I did have to wash a couple pans and knives to re-use but I had to use hand soap to do it. The pump on the hand soap in the kitchen did not work either so I had to take the lid off and pour it out.

As far as supplies go, there was plenty of flatware and dishes, but only one old spatula with rounded edges. If I'd had one flat spatula and one rubber spatula that would've been helpful. I also would've liked a can of cooking spray. I cooked 5 meals there and other than those very minor complaints, the kitchen really did have everything we needed.

Truly, the very very minor complaints about kitchen supplies are the ONLY negative things I could find about this place. I'll absolutely stay there again and recommend it to everyone I know.

Thanks for such a great weekend! =)

Yellow Romance Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I visited hot springs for a weekend for spring break with my girlfriend and we enjoyed the beautful view from each angle. The cottage is definitely made for a couple and very clean and different. The rate was a great rate for a unexpected vacation. The location of the cottage is very close to 24 hour Walmart and a lot of restaurants. I would definitely recommend that you visit hot springs during spring break the weather was awesome. We will definitely be returning whenever we need a quick getaway...

Perfect and quite retreat

  • 5 of 5

I get my grandson one weekend a month and Ralph made it where we could stay at the last minute! We had the best time ever, feeding the ducks watching the boats and the condo was vry clean and so comfortable. I felt like it was my home away from home and will recommend it to everyone! I will stay there again because it's child safe and my grandson is 18 months old and loved being there. We played on the swings and sat on the deck and even had a picnic on the patio. This is the perfect place to get away with a loved one or your kids. Thank you so much Ralph for making our stay perfect!

Perfect for what I needed

  • 5 of 5

I have my grandson one weekend a month and this was the first time we stayed here. It was a last minute decision but Ralph made sure everything was ready when we arrived. The condo was very clean perfect parking and right next to the lake, with a swing set and a patio to sit and have coffee or dinner on .My 18 month old grandson loved feeding the ducks and watching the boats. We will stay there again soon. Out of all the condos I have stayed at in Hot Springs this one has set the bar higher then all the rest. Thank you so much for making this weekend a joyful one for me and my grandson!
