Just what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a nice place to relax for a week & we found it here. It's a quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors & the house has a back covered porch where we spent a lot of time. The washer & dryer came in handy too. Sue was wonderful- she had everything there we needed & offered information on places to visit, restaurants & grocery stores. If you enjoy walking, several restaurants are within a mile walking distance. We would definately stay here again if we get back to Texas. Thanks Sue!

Happiest vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We are from Italy and we stayed 5 nights in this beautiful single home in Temple, Texas. Everything was cozy and comfortable, the house is equipped with everything you need. It might need only a couple of little fixes (bathroom and master bedroom doors).

Mrs Sue was always sweet and caring. She stopped by a couple of times to check on us. Thank you Mrs Sue for your kindness and hospitality. May God bless you and America!🇺🇸

I hope you enjoyed your stay in Central Texas. I have been in your beautiful Italy several times and love the people as they are so friendly. I hope you found Central Texans friendly. Thank you again for visiting Central Texas and staying at my home. Hope you return in the future. Blessings. Sue Hamby, PhD

Over priced for the home

  • 2 of 5

House was not clean..or maintained could tell even simple things like dusting had not been done for a while. After i complained they did come and do a quick dust to try but not really up to par. 21 month daughter cut her foot on the gaps in wood flooring and when they repaired they just did so with glue and left over parts of wood it made the pocket doors harder to close. Home owner was nice even sweet with promises of helping me meet people in the area, inviting me to events (i never got the details to meet anyone) and giving me money back for being upset about the roaches in the home. but never followed thru and had to clean up roaches daily. Also was hard to get her people to mow even when i was told they would show up. Had 3 days of the home smelling awful from gas since she often waits with car running in garage for yard maintenance people. Spoke to custormer services times as well as homeowner i will never ise rhis service again. Well.see if i get my deposit refund back.. been waiting a few weeks

Owner's Response: This guest was extremely difficult and started complaining the first day. She booked it for one month as she didn't want to pay the whole amount up front but planned on staying two months. Personally, I was hoping she would leave after one month because she was so challenging. My question was if the house was so bad, why did she stay two months. If you read my other reviews, you will see that they are all great except for this one. She was the first and only guest that has every complained of roaches. I sprayed as requested even though I never saw any. I never had my car running in the garage as that would have been rather stupid unless I was thinking about suicide. She complained of gas smell when we returned the lawnmower to the garage, after mowing. I gave her the full deposit back even though I had to have professional cleaners come in to clean up all the cat hair that was all over the furniture and to get rid of the "cat smell" after she left. She complained about HomeAway charging her a service fee and was so angry that I ended up giving her back $125 to make her happy which it didn't. HomeAway told me not to refund her their charges but I did as I was trying to make her happy but I realized that she is just a very unhappy person. I contacted HomeAway tonight to see why they had not refunded her full deposit which I authorized even though I had extra expenses from professional cleaners and had to throw away the cushions in the dining room because of the cat hair and smell, and they refunded her full deposit on November 7. The fact that on Nov 16th, she was complaining that she had been waiting weeks and had not got her deposit back, speaks volumes in regards to her credibility. In regards to inviting her, I did offer to take her to women's luncheon at my church but she told me she was not a "religious person" and would not leave her daughter. I certainly would not rent to her again but I am going to pray for her as she is an extremely unhappy person. I am so thankful that all of other renters have been wonderful and very appreciative of my efforts. I am also thankful that Ms. Geist was not my first renter as my experience with her was not only stressful but would have caused me to never do HomeAway again.

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had a very nice and peaceful stay while in temple. The house is very comfortable and homey in a very nice quiet and safe neighborhood. The owner was very sweet and made sure we were well taken care of with snacks and such and checked on us to make sure all was ok, Beds were comfortable and the water was hot. Very close to Scott and white and just a few blocks from shopping, theater, and multiple restaurants as well as STARBUCKS. Will definitely come here again when I return to Temple.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood, close to food and shopping. The house is clean and well maintained and was very comfortable for us and our handicapped daughter. The owner is wonderful to work with, making sure we were supplied with everything we needed and even had snacks waiting for us on our arrival. We will be interested in using this property again on our next visit to the area.
