Great property, Chloe (owner) was wonderful and we will be staying there again

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The first thing we noticed as soon as we walked in the door was that the entire apartment was immaculate. As you go through the apartment, we found that everything the listing said would be there was there. The furniture was sufficient and the whole place was nicely (not extravagantly) appointed. We stayed in the downstairs apartment - I have a walking disability and there were no steps to climb which was great for me. However, please don't be confused by that comment - the apartment is NOT wheelchair accessible or outfitted for the handicapped. The location was everything it was promised to be - well within walking distance of much of downtown Franklin. The building faces a typical neighborhood street and, unlike one commenter, we never heard a single bit of traffic. Also, the building is NOT located in the middle of some deserted, rusted out, industrial area as one commenter suggested. Yes, downhill from the apartment are a couple of closed manufacturing type buildings but they don't in anyway impact the apartment. And just below the apartment is an older cinderblock building that was never used by anyone the entire time we were there. There is one parking space right next to the apartment building but plenty of extra parking in a gravel lot which, it you need it, also works as a turn-around space. Cindy and I rode my Harley into Franklin and we had no problems parking it safely.

The best feature of the entire place is Chloe Goodman, the owner. She is very friendly, returned every call right away, responded to every email (usually within an hour) and answered every question we had. The second best feature is the price. You get a clean, attractive apartment, close to downtown for a price that is more than fair.

There are only two "cons" that I can think of and they are pretty inconsequential. One (and I guess we are just spoiled) there is no dishwasher. And two, we could hear the upstairs folks walking across the floor. Neither of these will keep us from staying there again.

Perhaps the best recommendation I can give is that Cindy and I will be staying there again soon. Hope these comments help.

Accurate description of a cute downtown duplex

  • 4 of 5

The house was represented accurately. This is not a cabin in the woods, if that's what you're looking for. It is a cute house in downtown Franklin close enough to walk to restaurants, a brewery, a grocery store and several shops.

The house was clean and well stocked with all of the necessary items (sheets, blankets, pillows, dishes, towels, etc.). We stayed in winter and the heat worked great! There was additional heat in the bathroom for a nice warm shower:)

I had trouble getting the washer started and Chloe, the property owner, called me right back after texting her and resolved the problem.

If we vacation in Franklin again, I would definitely stay here!

Franklin, North Carolina

  • 1 of 5

We rented the second floor apartment using "home away" so we only saw pictures online. One positive thing I can say is that the apartment itself was clean, but this property is not what it seems and we would not recommend it to anyone. The pictures do not show where it is located and it should not be booked by anyone unless you see it first. It is located in a dumpy industrial area which has been cut out of the pictures. It sits right on a busy street and the traffic feels likes it's in the apartment. Additionally, the heat and air conditioning is controlled in a separate laundry room from both apartments on the bottom floor which you must access from the outside or the basement apartment. In other words, the basement apartment and the second floor apartment share the the same heat and air conditioning

unit ~ not good. If we had not previously rented through VRBO (Home Away), we would not do this again. We have always been quite satisfied in the past. To end this review positively, Chloe was good to work with and responsive when we were booking the unit.

Larger than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient to historic downtown Franklin, just a short walk. The apartment is large, comfortable, and brighter than expected for a basement apartment. Communications with the owner, Chloe, were excellent. The only downside is that the wifi was weak and often not available.

Owner's Response: I have addressed the issue of the wifi being weak and unreliable at times. I have now contracted for wireless wi-fi where the signal comes from a tower and not the phone line.
