About Allison Warren
We moved to South Florida in 1987 and enjoy living here in Martin County because of the climate, beaches and small town quality of life. However, it is possible to experience what the large metro areas have to offer within a 2 hour drive to Miami and Orlando and all points in between. Life is good here in South Florida!
Allison Warren purchased this House in 2015
Why Allison Warren chose Stuart
We built our first vacation rental property for our own family to use in the summer beach season and enjoyed our family time together for many years. We met some of our winter renters who thanked us for providing them a nice vacation home. HB has been in real estate for many years. We decided to purchase other vacation rental properties, update the homes and create a fun part- time family business.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy traveling and use the same websites to find our own vacation rental properties wherever we visit. We update, equip and maintain our properties with the idea that we are the vacation renters and thus pay attention to the details....especially cleanliness!
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This is a spotless, bright and colorful cottage
We loved this house and its location: 5-10 minutes to downtown Stuart; 5-10 minutes to a dozen beaches; 2-3 minutes from stores and restaurants. Kitchen is well stocked; laundry facilities look brand new; there are about 5 choices for bed pillows which is great... from foam to feather to tempurpedic. If you have a dog, the fenced in yard and patio are perfect. Flowers surround the property line, lots of shade. we felt totally safe walking our dog at night around the block. It is a very quiet location.
We will come back for sure, and for a longer period; the beaches are the best part. Whether you go to the ocean or the bay, they are pristine and dog friendly.
Allison is immediately responsive to any questions and a great host.
Very nice stay, would stay again!
Clean, comfortable beds and great location!
This is a very cozy,clean and nicely decorated property . Close to beach ,town, shopping and a terrific choice of restaurants. Stuart has its own beach access with a huge parking lot ,outside showers and bath rooms ! All the folks we met were happy & helpful ;a very congenial atmosphere everywhere. Our hosts were delightful and helpful too. They had bikes for us and beach chairs and towels : all the appliances were working . A big bonus was the Sterling Elliott Museum ( an inventor ) there were gorgeous antique cars,race cars bikes and motorcycles to see , plus much much more . The county fair was totally fun and the weather warm with a breeze. Downtown was a daily event with a great river walk and a Green Market with live music every Sunday afternoon. Lots of eats and treats . We had a good time.
I enjoyed my stay in Stuart and it felt like home. My only suggestion is to have high speed internet for use with computers. The internet dropped often when I was working. I loved the patio and the back deck as well. Luna my pup loved sunning herself in the patio. The kitchen was perfectly stocked.
We are glad to know you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for reporting you had problems with the internet. Although this is our first complaint about the internet, we understand the importance of reliable internet and will research the problem and solve the issue.
Clean, comfortable house in a convenient location
The house is furnished well with comfortable furniture and bedding. The king bed is indeed great. The kitchen was updated and had everything we needed. Allison and her husband are serious about providing clean and well maintained accommodations and responded quickly to our questions and suggestions. The neighborhood is surprisingly quiet. We were able to quickly get to the beach and downtown Stuart, as well as to the restaurants along US1.
The house has the most technology that we have experienced in a vacation rental, with a Nest thermostat, mesh wifi and streaming television. We didn't have a problem working with it, but it might be intimidating to the technophobe.
Very clean. nice yard. enjoyed our stay
