    WONDERFUL STAY AND HOST!!! THANK YOU MEG! :) Great house with everything we needed. Incredible cookbooks and stocked kitchen. Stunning granite countertops with double sided deep sink. Coffee maker, KeurigS, French presses AND tea steepers. WOW! Fast internet. HBO. TV’s in 3 rooms. So much space for our family to visit in and have private time in the 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 dining rooms, and gorgeous back yard. So many couches! Two and a half bathrooms! Spotless house. We loved the yard. Salt water pool and Jacuzzi (we used it cold instead of hot, because it was a hot day), cornhole game, soccer and hockey net, toys, trampoline, couches, lounge chairs, futon swing, fun metal statues. The kids were in heaven, as were we. Definitely sit with coffee and listened to the doves lightly coo in the morning! Such a relaxing, quiet oasis filled with love and care inside and out. We felt super safe and comfortable with the security system. It felt like our own home while we were there, with totally empty closets and cabinets for our things. Meg has her belongings in her locked closets and office, so we never felt like we were going through someone else’s stuff. Fantastic setup for us. Be sure to read the Rental Agreement, which is the information provided by Meg. It’s easy to miss in the eight things Expedia asked us to agree to prior to booking. Meg is wonderful to communicate with. A lovely host. We didn’t meet this trip. We will definitely be back and hope to meet her next time!

    5/5 Excellent

      A wonderful weekend getaway! A

      This rental was a perfect place for a weekend getaway with friends. There was more than enough space for our group of 5. The common areas downstairs were very comfortable and accommodating. The outdoor area by the pool and jacuzzi was better than anything we could have ever dreamed of. The house is nestled in a quiet neighborhood that had all amenities and services nearby (i.e., grocery, restaurants, etc.). In reading some of the previous negative reviews, I was a bit hesitant in booking this rental. If you're thinking that the rules are strict, this is because this is the owner's primary residence! The previous negative reviews are because people were held accountable for being disrespectful and not abiding by the rental agreement. So, follow the rental agreement, communicate with the renter, and your stay will be PHENOMENAL! Meg is very attentive and set us up for a wonderful visit. I have NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY about our stay. An A in location, aesthetics of property, available amenities throughout the house, and in clarity of rental agreement. I would definitely recommend! Thanks for a great stay Meg! We hope to see you again soon!!

      4/5 Good


        This home is lovely and very clean nestled in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The pool and hot tub are awesome with lots of play toys. Every luxury is available in her home including a fully stocked kitchen with more spices you will ever need. TVs equipped with lots of options and DVDs are available. Spacious room to entertain and dine either inside or out under the covered patio with a grill . Great grocery stores and restaurants nearby. And state of the art security features are in this home to make you feel safe. It's a great place to stay and Meg was a gracious and lovely person and host. You will definitely enjoy your time in this wonderful home for any occasion.


          She has cameras and keep changing the air conditioner temperature

          She is very weird. She has cameras in the house. She is always watching everything and keep changing the air conditioner temperature. Not a safe neighborhood.
