Over the top experience&service + a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Now, I must say that I have very high expectations when it comes to a customer service experience (especially as someone in various service industries) and from beginning to end the owner, Craig did not let me or anyone that was staying in this beautiful home down. I came into this experience having reviewed every single review that existed on this page, followed by a direct call to the owner to confirm what I read or fill in the gaps (I can be thorough like that). After making the decision to book with him, I just knew that'd be the end of our interactions, until it was time to check out.

However, I was very wrong. In fact, I was far from that truth. My now husband and I were hosting a very special event and Craig meant so much more to our process than we could possibly ask for from a renter. His commitment to supporting our planning process ---from the texts, phone calls, emails and pop up visits at the property prior to the event meant everything to us, providing so much piece of mind; and further affirming that while an unconventional venue location for our event, we made thee right decision.

I am well-beyond satisfied with this experience and forever grateful for the blessing that was 'Uncle' Craig. For any future renters, I can't find any reason that you could ever be disappointed. The house is large, gorgeous, modern, surrounded by beautiful nature and enough seclusion for any kind of renting experience you are hoping to have there. Williams Manor will have everything you need to feel at home and more and if it's not there Craig will help you find it.

Do yourself a favor and book Williams. You won't regret it! Thank you for sharing this gift with us Craig.

Beautiful home and setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property to be near family for Thanksgiving. The house was well appointed and we easily hosted our family's meal. We were comfortable in the large bedrooms and spacious common areas.

Craig's Manor home was spectacular. We had a graduation celebration and family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Craig's awesome home. 4 generations, celebrating a graduation and early thanksgiving. Craig has thought thru everything. A well stocked chefs kitchen allowed 6 or more of us to be gathered cooking at one time.along with the beautiful outdoor kitchen. Home is a entertaing paridise. Home flows perfectly. The outdoor fireplace was the star of the week. Evenings were spent telling old stories, roasting marshmallows and playing catch phrase. Lovely grounds and peaceful to look toward the woods and see horses at neighboring home. Apex is a delightful town with a charming historic district. Harris teeters very close and enjoyed afternoon at the arboretum nearby. 1 hour drive to Ft Bragg. So makes an ideal family retreat if you are gathering for a military celebration. If I am ever back in Apex Raleigh area I will be calling Craig. Owner super responsive and helpful. Craig. Come visit us in Roswell!!

Great Party Venue

  • 5 of 5

First, I'd like to say that the house is beautiful and that the pictures don't do it justice. The landscaping was perfect, there was plenty of space to park, and the inside of the house was spotless. The house was spacious enough to accommodate the 60 or so guests that attended the birthday party for me and my girlfriends. The guests were really impressed with the decor and space of the house. I was further impressed with the affordability and the comfort of the bedding in the bedrooms. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Fit, Flawless & 40s Girlfriend Party

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you hear or read about places and think this is just another gimmick to make me spend money. Well, man was I surprised! This place truly lives up to the description and the price is most reasonable. My 2 girlfriends and I accommodated approx. 60 guests comfortably. They marveled at the beautiful home and the tucked away location.

I was most proud to tell guests if they wanted to stay overnight they could; which was an added benefit as we partied until the wee hours of the morning. I do not think we could have found a better location or venue for the price. I also must mention how pleasant it was to deal with the owner; which is a rare encounter in today's society.

If you are looking for a venue that will have your guests talking for months and possibly years to come then this is the location to pick.
