About Cerise LeBlanc

Coming from the New Orleans area, Arkansas is rustic, beautiful and just what we had been looking for as our retirement began to close in on us. Hurricane Katrina pushed us closer to the inevitable and happily here we are a little earlier than originally planned. We have made many wonderful friends and love our community with its quiet, safe and friendly neighborhoods.

Big city folks in a small town and lovin' it!

Wonderful Surprise

  • 5 of 5

This place really made our trip wonderful. We are not rustic people at all and have never rented a VRBO before, so at first we were a little worried if we'd enjoy it. But we sure did!! Gary and Cerise are very kind, helpful and conscientious people who went out of their way to make us comfortable. The house is perfect for a family of 5. My three boys loved their room with the 3 twin beds lined up like it's a little dorm. We liked the fact that we could cook our meals and enjoy a family dinner at the table. The best part of the house is the yard, which made for some very enjoyable evenings complete with campfires and yard sports. And yes, the snowballs are really good!! I honestly cannot say enough good things about this place. The house was clean, the linens were clean and the hospitality was wonderful. We've only been back home for two days and we already want to go back!

Great for a relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two toddlers really enjoyed staying in the house. We wanted a vacation where we could relax and not have to worry about much. Gary and Cerise were very helpful with tips on everything from where to eat in town to how to look for Diamonds at the Crater, we even used Gary's tools to dig with. Plus the house had everything we needed in it. We made a stop at the grocery store and stocked up on sandwhich supplies and packed our ice chest to take into the crater. Everyone slept comfortably (bonus the crater playing wore the toddlers out).

We even took a day trip to Hot Springs, since it isn't far from here.

We've decided that we are going to try to make this a yearly vacation spot.

Thank you guys again for a great week :)

Owner's Response: We are glad to know that you all were comfortable and slept good after a hard day at the diamond mine. We're sure that you were worn out too but you kept at it. The more you go, the better your chances at finding a diamond get. Thank you for deciding to stay with us and we hope you stay with us again.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Gary and Cerise are amazing! The house was comfortable and had everything we needed from cooking utensils to paper plates. We had such an amazing time my teenage kids are already planning a trip back. Their response when I asked what I should write was: "the hospitality made the trip 10x's better. Listen to Gary when he says you need to try the snowballs they are great!" We could not have asked for a better experience. Anyone wanting to get away from home and not stay in a hotel should definitely stay here!

Owner's Response: We are happy to know that ya'll were comfortable and it has really been a pleasure having ya'll stay with us too. We put some things it the house that we think could come in handy as well as practical stuff so our guests don't have to buy or bring so much with them. We are proud of our Snow Balls and encourage everyone to try them at least once. We know that they will be back for more. Thank you for the wonderful review and hope to see all of you again.

Comfortable and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gary and Cerise! Our stay at the rental house was perfect. With 4 kids it can be difficult to find affordable accommodations for vacations so the price was great and everyone slept comfortably both nights we stayed. The kids had a blast playing badminton and eating s'mores around the campfire. My wife and I were very pleased with the all room to fit everyone comfortably. Everyone really liked the New Orleans style snowballs (a must if you are ever in the area). Being located so close to the Crater of Diamonds State Park was ideal for taking a short break to return to the house for lunch. The digging equipment you had worked perfectly, saved us on the rental fees at the park and meant we could dig a little longer because we could use the equipment right up to closing time. We wish we had planned a longer trip to have time to take a walk up the street and poke through all the fun little shops in town, next time. We could not have asked for friendlier or more accommodating hosts. You have a great place and I will not hesitate to stay with you again the next time we are in the area. I recommend the Budget Diamond Hunters House to anyone looking for a place to stay in Murfreesboro, Arkansas.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you had such a good time and the house was comfortable. We try to make it as homey as possible so that you feel like you "are" home in Murfreesboro. We are glad the kids enjoyed the yard games too. If you can suggest any other games we can add, we would appreciate the input. We hope you will get to visit us again sometime and thank you for the wonderful review. Gary and Cerise

A delightful stay.

  • 5 of 5

The weather was formidable, high humidity and 96 degrees. We couldn't hunt for diamonds except for a few hours. Yet our stay was delightful, Gary and Cerise were attentive , friendly and charming. The house slept all five adults comfortably, clean and well furnished. Will come again.
