Loved Crismars and the Whole Area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Crismars the first week of May. The condo is clean, well-organized, and in the perfect location to explore the entire area. The owners communicated clearly and well, both before and after our stay and I couldn't be more pleased with the way everything was handled. My husband really enjoyed the waterfalls and the exercise room and I loved the swimming pool. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and the massage was wonderful. We hope to visit again.

Very nice for the physically fit.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was lovely and spacious. The only problem is that both bathrooms are downstairs with no powder room upstairs. Since we both take "water pills" we got a lot of exercise using the stairs! The beds were comfortable and all the rooms were nicely furnished. We were very comfortable and fixed meals often. This is a beautiful area of the country, and we enjoyed exploring.

Marta was extremely nice and easy to work with.

Clean, quiet, and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This unit is convenient to many attractions in the area. It is clean and quiet. Beds were comfortable to us but the guest room beds might be too firm for some. The bedrooms are downstairs and are good for sleeping because there is limited light and that area is cooler than the upstairs. Internet service was good. We didn't use any of the community amenities so can't comment on them. This area is so beautiful and we loved being there. There are so many wonderful hiking opportunities nearby.

Absolutely no complaints!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 6. This was our 7th trip to the Sapphire area and each time we have always stayed in a Hilltop home. Out of the four different places we have stayed, this home was the best. We received detailed check-in instructions, and the owners were a pleasure to work with. Everything was perfect for our arrival. Most of these homes were built in the 70s and these owners have done a great jobs with updates. We all enjoyed the fast and reliable Wi-Fi. The TV was great. I was skeptical of the electric grill on the porch, but that also turned out to be good as well. The kitchen was well stocked with almost anything you would need for cooking. We prepared all of our meals there. The Ingles grocery store is just a few miles away and wonderful (they have a great deli). Light switches, appliances, etc., were clearly labeled, and we found that to be helpful. We appreciated the 12 noon checkout time and didn't feel rushed. I could say many more great things about this home. We hope to be back soon.

We had a great, relaxing 4 night stay there. I would highly recommend this home and the Sapphire area to anyone.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was absolutely great with the responses. She allowed my family to come hours early, which was great we are from NY. The townhouse was tastefully decorated. Everything we needed was there. All of our grocery shopping was in a short drive away. Definitely would return to this home.

Coming to Sapphire Valley could probably the best vacation you would experience in a life time.

Sapphire offers a vacation of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and allows relaxation to the fullest.

I came to Sapphire for the first time in 2000 and always said I would someday retire and live here and my wish came through.

Once you vacation here you will be coming back every year as I did. The nature pictures you take could be shared by you for years to come.

Bringing my family here the enjoyment of the ammenities and the sight seeing opportunities are breathless.

My favorite sights besides all the ones you can expeirence at Sapphire are;

Biltmore in Ashville

White Water Falls

Cashiers Sliding Rock

City of Highlands,NC

Great Smokey Mountain Railroad

Shadow of the Bear,Cashiers
