5/5 Excellent

Great Place, Great Owner

Great place and communication between guest and owner is the best I've ever had


It’s in a convenient location. The house was a good size. It depends on what your looking for.

The patio furniture and the outdoor grill were unusable due to being very dirty. A lot of the pots and pans were greasy. Hot water wasn’t really hot.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay

We really enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful little house!

We only stayed at Grandma's Place for 2 nights and it met all of our needs. Cozy and comfortable with necessary amenities nearby. Would recommend to others looking to rent in this area.


Great location, large rooms but the house was dirty.

I liked the convenient location, the large rooms and the price. I left the owner a note explaining that the house was really dirty. We spent the greater part of one day of our vacation washing all of the silverware and the containers that they go in as well as dishes. I spilled a bit of water on the kitchen floor and wiped it up and the rag was black with dirt. We saw popcorn kernels on the carpets. A dirty house is a real turn off for me and I am not a super neat person! Also, I called the owner on Monday but never got a response. I hope he is ok. The pillow case on the MBR was yellow with sweat stain, Luckily, I had brought my own.
