This warm and welcoming rental sits on one acre along with the main house, and is surrounded by 100-year-old oaks and pines. Forest on two sides beautifully shields our guests from the outside world. With song birds of all kinds, a lovely garden, and a picturesque flock of hens providing farm fresh eggs (no noisy rooster!), our property truly is a relaxing getaway with all the amenities of the city.
Owners Frank and Becky Thompson live in the lower house with their college-age daughters, their young son age 9 and their miniature golden retriever. Since our rental is a spacious, newly-renovated and furnished 2 bedroom/1 bath over-the-garage apartment, we call it the "Upper House". It has a complete kitchen and laundry, both with all new appliances.
The Upper House features:
Sleeping quarters – Cozy and comfortable pillow top mattresses are on each bed. Soft fine quality bed linens and towels provide all the comforts of home away from home. We have 1 queen bed in the master plus a twin bed in the small bedroom. The living area has a very comfortable couch which can also be used for sleeping if needed.
Kitchen/Laundry/Bathroom – Fully-stocked with all the necessary dishes, utensils and small appliances you would need to prepare meals for your family. New appliances include an oven, refrigerator/freezer, stove, microwave and washer and dryer. The bathroom is also completely new with a shower, no tub.
Cable Television & Internet Access – Basic cable and wifi
Exercise & Outdoor Amenities – The gas grill and covered picnic area are available for your personal use by reservation. Our 1-acre property provides many shady spots and children love our swings, garden, playhouse, basketball net and big yard. The neighborhood is an excellent place for a morning power walk or an evening stroll, and we are just a short jog away from a lovely hike-and-bike trails of 2, 3 and 5 miles in length. Two adult bicycles are available to guests. Golf is just 5 minutes away at the beautiful Longwood Golf Club
Parking – We have parking available for two cars. We can accommodate more upon request.
Children – Well-behaved children (on the whole) are always welcome.

Frank and Becky are exceptional hosts, and very attentive to their guests' needs! My family recently had the pleasure to stay for two weeks in their charming guest house. All the amenities you might need are provided, with excellent shopping/dining just around the corner. You don't feel like you're in the big city because of how large the quiet property is with all the glorious trees. My favorite aspects of this home are the split bedroom configuration, full kitchen in which we cooked everyday, and relaxing view of the lovely backyard, chickens (who are very quiet), and pond.
Thank you for having us!
Becky and Frank were the perfect hosts and made us feel absolutely at home. The apartment was cosy, clean and well maintained. Appliances were all in good condition. Our hosts were attentive to all our needs. Would certainly come again if visiting the neighbourhood, and recommend this to my friends or relatives.
My family had a wonderful experience at this charming home while waiting one month for our new home to be built. The owners are wonderful people that offer southern hospitality plus! You will have complete privacy and a nice quiet retreat that is also close to all the shopping you ever need. This apartment unit is quiet, clean and very comfortable with all the items you need for a long or short term stay. Highly recommend this VRBO! It’s a ten!
Frank and Becky were great hosts. We had slight internet router issue but resolved with a lot of energy.
Our stay was absolutely fantastic and after speaking to my wife and son, we felt we made the perfect choice as we felt at home.
We had a wonderful stay! Becky, Frank and Josh are delightful. The place perfect, especially the fresh eggs! Everything we needed was available. We hope to return!
My husband, 9-month old son, and I stayed in the garage apartment for about a week and a half while repairs were being made to our home a couple miles away. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed during our stay. I think we used just about every amenity that was available. We cooked dinner every night in the kitchen. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer in the apartment. There was plenty of space to park both of our cars. Our son enjoyed the swing set in the backyard. Frank and Becky were very friendly, making sure we had everything that we needed. I wish we had found their apartment sooner and could have stayed longer! Thank you for making our time away from our own home a little less stressful!
We are just 4 minutes from the Metro Park and Ride bus station that takes you into the very heart of the city and numerous stops in between.
