Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and it exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of room for everyone and it was close to shopping and attractions. Ms Dawson went above and beyond to accommodate our family and we really appreciate that. We have no complaints and would definitely use this property again.

Very spacious

  • 4 of 5

This home was very spacious and the bed was really comfortable so comfortable that I over slept and was late for a meeting but it was worth every penny. When I come back to Atlanta I will rent this home again if the dates are not taken, this home was also just 5 mins away from good food and good shopping.

I don't understand how this house has such good reviews!!!

My husband was on a job in GA, so my children and myself decided we would go visit. This house was horrible! She would not let me out of the contract! It was a bad deal and if we would have had extra money we would have left regardless!

First and foremost the house has a cockroach infestation. The owner claims that it is the woods that causes the problem.

Secondly, the house was not clean. There were old water bottles, wrappers, etc. under the beds; a stinky dirty rag in the sink; the floors needed mopping; and the carpet was extremely dirty, it appeared to even have animal hair on it when supposedly no animals are allowed. To top it off there was no vacuum so I could not vacuum the carpet.

Thirdly, we decided to go to the park down the road. It was me and my children. We were playing basketball on one of the many hoops at this awesome park. When suddenly, and I don't know where they all came from, a group of probably thirty kids came over to our hoop, which there were several hoops open, and started calling my kids names, saying white boys can't play basketball. We decided to leave and we never went back to the park. Fourthly, she claimed to have all sorts of complimentary items. Some were there and some were not. There was no coffee, dish washing detergent, and the snacks appeared to be an assortment of this and that that they pulled out of their cabinets threw in a bowl and put in the rental. Some looking very old and stale. I complained about the lack of complimentary items and I did receive dish washing detergent and laundry soap. Keep in mind when she says complimentary you still need to bring it. She supplies a small amount. An example is she gave us four water bottles for our group of seven.

Last, but this is very important, if you decide to stay here, the dressers in two of the bedrooms are set in a closet under a shelf that holds a TV. Items slip off this dresser and get lost behind it. We almost left some brand new clothes that fell behind it. And we did discover a pocket power deal that somebody else probably lost behind it. So make sure you check behind the dressers before you leave!

One last note, you wouldn't believe all the signs: an exit sign, a bathroom sign, no drugs no smoking signs, 16 signs in all!!

Oh, I forgot to mention the pillows. There were two pillows in pillow cases, the rest were in shams. Where I come from we use pillow cases.

Owner's Response: Please be cautious, this is an erroneous review laden with false claims and vile commentary. Please NOTICE the numerous inconsistencies in her review. In response to this erroneous review, I would advise all readers with common sense to read between the lines with regards to this persons commentary.There are certain terms that this person used in her review which make it obvious she is seeking to "insinuate" certain things with regards to the community and seeks to send a message to targeted audiences to deter them. This type of ignorance is unfortunate given the negative climate in society that we are challenged with. We encourage all of our customers to provide feedback and inform us of any issues upon check-in to allow us to remedy the issues however it is clear that this person no matter what had malicious intentions although management communicated with her promptly to address all her concerns that appeared reasonable as well as those that were extreme.This person was asked on numerous occasions if everything was satisfactory and was offered remedy. For the record - The property has LIMITED carpet; there are only area rugs and carpeting on the stairs. As you can see from the above commentary this customer has no problem with taking things that do not belong to her although she acknowledges someone left it behind. This person hassled and haggled management about a discounted rate prior to making the reservation. We were kind enough to agree to a discounted rate for the property, which in the future we will probably not extend this courtesy because of rude dramatic customers such as this one who do not have home training or respect for other persons. This person damaged property and attempted to cover it up after check out. This customer did not follow directions from the beginning and responded with a nasty attitude when she was redirected. This person had to be reminded about the washer and dryer that came with the property as she would hang clothes over the railing on the front of the house facing the street for everyone to see as if she does not know how to conduct herself in a civilized manner. This person threw trash on the sidewalk and had to be instructed to put the items in the trash can. This person more likely than not, brought more bugs with her than were naturally in the environment as she and her family came in after going fishing. Our reputation speaks for itself based upon 4 years of service and reviews to support our quality.
