5/5 Excellent

Great stay in Hays!
We were in town for a wedding an this place was perfect! Super clean and the owner James was very responsive. Would definitely stay here again if ever back in the area.

5/5 Excellent

Enjoyable Experience
We stayed 1 night with 2 adults and 2 elementary kids and couldn’t be happier with the experience! Communication was excellent leading up to the trip and we had all the information to find the property easily and get into the loft quickly when we arrived in the late evening. The outdoor patio and the interior spaces are stylish and well-appointed and everything was very clean. You can tell they really care about providing a comfortable experience for guests. Will definitely stay again when the opportunity arises!

5/5 Excellent

Right at home in Hays
This was the cleanest VRBO property I’ve ever stayed in. Not only was everything impeccably clean, but the decor, furniture, overall styling of the loft was perfect - it felt like a clean organized home. The owners were wonderful and responsive, and even had a baby gate installed and ready on the stairs knowing we were traveling with a toddler. It had every amenity and comfort I could think of and more. There is also a beautiful outdoor space which can not be beat after a day of driving. Rather than Hays being a pit stop on our drive from Stl to Colorado, it felt like another piece of the vacation to stay in this loft and walk around/experience the town of Hays. The loft is right downtown, so we could walk to dinner after a long day of driving; not to mention the town of Hays is incredibly charming and I wish we’d had more time to explore it! I would recommend this listing to any and everyone- it was so much better than any hotel and made a “pit stop” into a piece of our vacation in Hays KS.
