About Donna and Chip Budd

We are empty nesters who travel often to see our grand babies who live too far away! Since we travel often on weekends, we rent out our home for football games, wedding guests, graduations, etc. We welcome you to enjoy our home as much as we do!

Why Donna and Chip Budd chose Florida Panhandle

The location of our property makes it easy to access any area of Tallahassee as we are minutes from Interstate 10. We have a spacious and beautiful back yard waiting for you to enjoy while sitting on our deck or enjoy the rockers on the front porch!

Well Manicured Home

  • 3 of 5

This was a very clean and well manicured home. However, since it is categorized as a "Vacation Home", I was not prepared to stay in a place that appeared to have people living in it full time. There are family photos and personal artifacts in every room, owners toiletries in the bathroom, and when I opened a couple of drawers in the master bedroom to look for space to unpack my bag, they were full of clothes. (There was a portable valet available to hang our things.) The accommodations were comfortable, but personally, I felt I was intruding on someone else's space. I am a very private person not comfortable with staying in the home of strangers, and not comfortable being responsible for the personal belongings of someone I don't know. I have leased several vacation properties before but none of them were occupied full time by owners. I did not think that VRBO was one of those sites that leased "lived in" homes. I don't want this to be a negative review as the home was beautiful, in a great location, and the owners were very nice, communicative and let me know they were available if there was anything I needed. My preference when I travel is to stay in actual "vacation rentals", or hotels. I think advertising this home as a "vacation home" is misleading and should not be advertised as such.

Owner's Response: We wanted to clarify that we do not stay in the home while it is rented. We are not on the premises for the duration of the stay. Our decription states that this our main residence when not renting. We now have empty drawers in each room if needed and there are locked closets containing personal belongings. Future renters please feel free to call with questions. We love our home and love to share with others needing a place to stay with family and friends.

Amazing stay for my whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Bud and Donna's place was amazing. My family came up for my graduation and rather than split everybody up in hotels, we used their home to keep everyone together. There was plenty of great stuff even a barbecue grill which we absolutely took advantage of! I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to stay for a weekend away in Tally! Warm, cozy and immaculate we felt at home and it was 15 minutes from the university. The kids enjoyed the huge backyard and the fire for roasting marshmallows. We will make this an annual trip for our family, Thank you to the Budd family!

Phenomenal stay at Bud and Donna's

  • 5 of 5

Their home was even more beautiful then the listing was described. Beautiful yard, all amenities just as they had described. Back porch with the hot tub looking out to the beautiful back yard was truly breathtaking. Everything was spotless, towels, sheets, plenty of comfy beds. Donna was phenomenal about being there whenever we had questions, she left the ice maker on for us, really just made sure our stay was he beat it could be. I will absolutely be back to stay at bud and Donnas again! Thanks for everything guys

Beautiful home to relax after the game

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this lovely home this past week-end. We came to town to watch the FSU game, and to show our teen-age daughter and her friend the FSU campus. We really enjoyed the spacious floor plan of the home. We were able to visit and still have our own private space. The girls could have had their own rooms, but enjoyed staying together in the beach themed room. My brother-in-law was over from England, and he had his own bed and bath upstairs. We enjoyed the family photos, and getting to greet the sweet little trick-or-treaters! We will stay here again!

Perfect property! Outstanding amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! Our stay lasted for 3 days, and we wanted to stay longer. The owners were pleasant and made the whole process easy.

The house was impeccably clean, well furnished, each bedroom was comfortable and the place was laid out perfectly to allow for privacy.

The property includes a deck in the back, a jacuzzi that fits 4-6 people and a fire pit. The back yard is much bigger than the pictures give it credit.

We really felt like we were at home during our stay. We can't wait to go back and stay there again!
