Good, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property was friendly, responsive, and easy to work with. The house is large, comfortable, and good for hosting large groups. The large dining room table and patio picnic tables were especially good for this purpose. The house is an easy walk to several restaurants and outdoor activities. My friends and I enjoyed having our college reunion here.

Large and in charge.

  • 5 of 5

The home was inviting, huge and had something for everyone. The home was a welcomed friend after spending our days enjoying the local activities. There was something for everyone to enjoy, from the many televisions (& smart TV) , to the game tables (pool table, fussball and ping-pong) and hot tubs. We had 15 people in the home, but the home was so large that you would have never known. We will definitely rent with Barry again,

Loved working with Barry!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property has been nothing short of amazing. I had original dates to stay here for memorial day weekend, but ended up having to cancel due to the personal schedules of my peers who I was originally bringing with me. Barry put all of his effort into helping me to get my deposit back by finding a new group of persons to occupy his premises so that I would not have to be charged. Well, all his hard work paid off and I ended up getting the money that I had put down back. Throughout the whole process, he was very personable and considerate of the changes that I had to make. I will definitely be booking with him in the future!
