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.
