Stunning property and amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

This property is even nicer in person than the pictures. The description was completely accurate if a bit on the modest side. The house was large and very clean everywhere. The pool and pool area was also very well kept and clean. It is clear that the owners put a lot of time and care into the upkeep and maintenance of their home. The owners are also super friendly and welcoming. We felt that they were totally available if we needed them (via email, text, phone), but they weren't intrusive at all. They were very kind and I almost feel like they could be friends of mine, like it wouldn't be strange to go out to dinner with them. They really made every effort to make sure that our stay felt like we were staying in a "home" rather than just a sterile hotel rental or something like that.

Cell phone service is limited in the area, but that isn't through the fault of the owners, but just an FYI for any potential renters.

I really have no negative or otherwise constructive criticism. I had reservations about writing this review...but that's only because I know that the more people who experience this amazing place and wonderful people the harder it will be for me to make reservations for myself in the future!

Great place to vacation 90 minutes from NYC

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just recently spent 5 days at this wonderful home in Millbrook NY. The owners are courteous and friendly, and they really go the extra mile to make you feel like the home is yours for the time you're there. The pool is gorgeous and the home has a great country feel to it. My only gripe, though not any fault of the owners, is there are plenty of bees and wasps, which concerned me because of my 20 month old son who loves being outside. You are away from it all without being too far away. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking to rent from great people but don't want to travel too far from NYC.

Amazing estate

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in this beautiful house and everything was perfect. The house was sparkling clean when we arrived, and it has all you need, fully equipped kitchen, large swimming pool protected by a fence (very important for our 2 years old son), huge (I mean, HUGE) garden, a screened porch with beautiful scenic view, laundry, wifi, large plasma TV, etc... We had friends over for the week-end, they stayed downstairs and enjoyed their own accomodations (bathrooms, living room, outdoor access, etc...), the two families leaved together in the house seemlessly. The owners are very nice and helpful, they took the time to give us a tour when we arrived, they were available when needed and really helped us feel like we were at home. Away from it all is what describes best Casa Alma, the house is surrounded by trees with no neighbours in sight, and all you can see while seating on the very nice balcony are pastures and fields. The village of Millbrook is very close though, a mere 5 minutes drive, and has everything you need in terms of groceries, and a farmers' market on Saturdays. The region is beautiful, with a mix of open spaces and hills, and we had a great time cruising around, going to the various farms and wineries, there is even a small zoo a few miles away, great for kids. Our two years old son had a great time too, the house even had quite a few toys that he enjoyed during his stay. We would definitely recommend this house, and will be coming back for sure!
