Very convenient and enjoyable!
This house is well-equipped and conveniently located near grocery, a few restaurants, a playground and near north campus. The kitchen had plenty of everything. The owner is very responsive to questions ahead of time or during the stay. The third bathroom is a little less convenient if you have a big group, since it is in the basement (which was a lot colder than upstairs in winter) so the four bedrooms upstairs have one ensuite for the master and the one in the hall accessible to the other three bedrooms. It wasn't a problem for us, but might be for others.
It was easy to access the house with instructions from the owner, and there was good information for renters left in the house. The neighborhood is quiet, and we had one car in garage and one in driveway. There is plenty of on street parking too.
A very pleasant experience and we would return if we were back in the area.
Comfortable home, plenty of space
7 of us stayed in the home. Plenty of space. Comfortable beds. Large living room with giant curved couch. Separate recreation and dining rooms.
Large TV (65"?) and good sound bar.
Near grocery store and excellent restaurant (Carsons)
Definitely would stay again.
Such a great place, with shopping near by and all the items anyone would need in a home. Multiple living spaces to hang out in and plenty of bedrooms for multiple families. Would rent again.
Perfect fit for our reunion
Had a 50 year reunion with 6 of my fraternity brothers. We all enjoyed the House. Everyone had a place to sleep and the living room with it’s large sofa provided the perfect location to seat around and chat and watch the TV.
THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO STAY . THIS SAYS IT ALL THIS NOT A HOUSE IT IS A HOME
For over 40 years our family has been coming back to AA for a family football week-end. Four years ago our parents died but we wanted to keep the tradition alive, we rented a couple of other places but stumbled on this HOME which is right around the corner from our parents Condo, how perfect we were at Home. We have rented this Home for two years now and will continue to rent it as long as Michael and Diane have it on the market.It think is very rare situation when the week-end tenants of a Home become close to the owners of the Home , we do not required Michael and Diane our week-end land lords we regard them as close friends and members of our family. We remain in constant contact with them and hopefully you could get to meet them. It is hard to write a review about the home and location because in the topic About The Property because they give you excellent description of the Home and surroundings they understate how great it is when they say" comfortable-roomy and cheerful" . What is missing in this rental property? ABSOLUTE NOTHING, that is why we call it our AA HOME, it is not a house. It is a HOME that has been in Michael's family since 1963 ,the front picture of the HOME gives you a small indication of what is inside when you open the door, . We can all find time to complain and be critics but seldom to we take time to say thanks. Michael and Diane thanks for letting stay in your Home so close to our old one and giving us the chance to bring back some old fond memories and create some new one's.You gave us First Class treatment for a First Class home. Price wise for what you get in this Home , from our experience we do not feel can be beat.In summary a great HOME , in a great location with great owners. We hated writing this review because we do not anyone getting our week-end. Michael and Diane thanks for your HOME and the memories and hope to see you in 2018. GOD BLESS YOU
Spacious and spotless!
A wonderful, spacious, clean house...very comfortable and perfect for a college roommate reunion! The house is stocked with everything a group could want...the weather didn't allow us to use the beautiful back yard, but it would be PERFECT for a group in warm seasons.
Four bedrooms, all comfy, towels galore, and a quiet neighborhood.
Close to the main campus
