not the perfect getaway

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a nice weekend. House was clean and conveniently located.

However, I think it is false advertising that the listing for thee property says it sleeps eight. That is certainly a stretch. Luckily one of us had two blow-up beds so we made do but it was rather tight.

Also, we had no idea that there would be cars on the lawn for the game.

I did check the listing after the fact and saw (at the very bottom of the property description below the rates, availability, photos, reviews, map, etc.) that the owner retains the use of the remainder of the yard for game day parking but it would have been courteous and professional to have told us that. We were rather surprised to see all those cars on the lawn when we came back to the house. There were even two chairs and a grill at the front door. We paid a lot of money to rent the property and assumed it was ours for the weekend and were surprised to see the lawn - front and side - filled with cars. A bit disconcerting as all of our belongings were in the house while people were roaming around the property.

We had a lovely weekend but I would not rent your property again.

Cass was a fantastic hostess, and the house was great. Kept nice and warm as the weather turned cold; super clean, and very nice neighborhood.

Wonderful football weekend. House was delightful, great location and Cass a truly caring warm host.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, comfortable, and perfect location for walking downtown and to the stadium. Once we parked our car Friday, we did not move it until time to leave on Sunday. There were six of us who stayed there and we were very comfortable. Charming home, kitchen well equipped. Cass is a warm and caring host. She was always available to us. I would not hesitate to spend time there for another football weekend. It was great fun in a relaxed environment.

Beautiful house, great location, awesome host

  • 5 of 5

What a great weekend. Cassandra is a wonderful, responsive and thoughtful host whose house is perfectly located for a football Saturday. It's just far enough away to be apart from the massive crowds, but close enough that you can leave the house 15 minutes before game time and still be in your seat for kickoff. The backyard is also great for summer/fall weekends and evenings. We're definitely planning on coming back soon. Thanks again Cassandra!
