Columbia Villa Rental Photos and Description

Gorgeous Villa that sleeps 8 comfortably but will accommodate 10

Arbor Falls Luxury Villa's was developed in 2013 in Columbia Missouri at the Club at Old Hawthorne. I have been involved in every aspect of the villa's and am proud to offer one as a seasonal rental. The villa sleeps 8 comfortably with 1 King, and 3 queens, there are three bedrooms and a fourth open bonus room as an additional 4th bedroom, as well as 3 bathrooms , large kitchen with stainless and granite, large family room, washer/dryer, outside covered patio and in a lovely setting only minutes from all Columbia has to offer. The football stadium (Faurot ) is only minutes away. Game prices are higher so share the villa with family and friends, each room for most games is 150.00 per night, very fair price compared to hotels on those dates and beautiful accommodations.

  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Beautiful house on the edge of town - easy to relax, and to get anywhere!

  • 5 of 5

The house more than lived up to its billing. The sub-division is really on the outskirts of town, so you have privacy and quiet while also being only minutes from anywhere you need to get. Tons of space, clean rooms, and lots of kitchen space for cooking. Donna was great, checking in multiple times to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this!

Comfortable, well-appointed home just outside Columbia

  • 5 of 5

Four couples stayed here for the Roots and Blues Festival. Homemade chocolate chip cookies were there when we arrived! Donna was a great attentive host! The property overlooks a golf course and is in a new development of luxury villas. The 1st and 2nd bedrooms on the main level are completely separate with their own separate well-appointed bathrooms. The master, in particular, is luxurious and large! I would mention that the 3rd and 4th bedrooms upstairs are adjoining and you must enter one bedroom which is open at the top of the steps in order to get to the other. A bathroom connects the two upstairs bedrooms. All in all, a great stay for our group!

Our stay at your villa was exactly what we needed. The fresh baked cookies, amazing beds and linens made our stay even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Donna's villa. Everything we needed was there, the place is so meticulously clean and inviting, it felt like a home away from home. Thank you Donna for your hospitality and an amazing stay. We will be back.

This property is the best. We could not have been happier with our stay.

  • 5 of 5

I rate this property a 5 star +. It is located in the Old Hawthorne Club area of town plus it is close to shopping, medical facilities, the University of Missouri, Stephens and Columbia College campus as well as downtown Columbia where the shopping is great and the nightlife is even better.

If you want a great spot to call home for a night or a month....this is it.

PS. Don't tell the owners but we were fortunate to get to know them and have become friends that will last a long time. Great people with a great rental.

Couldn't be better!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great arrangement. We can't recommend Donna and her house more. We had our family congregate for our son's graduation from Mizzou, and we are still discussing how wonderful everything was. We had read about chocolate chip cookies upon arrival, but didn't know we would also be treated to cinnamon rolls on our last morning and a personal late-night visit to replace a flapper on the toilet! Such great treatment. And incredible space, too. We were all very comfortable in this spectacular home away from home. If you are looking for a house for a visit to Mizzou, consider yourself lucky if this one is available. Thanks, Donna, for the terrific hospitality!

Nearest Restaurant
3 Miles
Car: recommended

We are minutes away from shopping, restaurants, downtown and the stadium. Arbor falls vacation villa is located at the beautiful Old Hawthorne Country Club and golf course.

Rocheport is a short trip down I-70 to Les Bourgeois winery, well worth the trip to enjoy local wines overlooking the river below. Also enjoy biking on the Katy Trail as well as the cute shops.
