About this property

The Shooting Star of the Rocket City

Vacation home in Huntsville with kitchen and patio
This modern-day craftsman styled bungalow is nestled at the base of Monte Sano Mountain in the area of Huntsville known as Five Points. It is very convenient to downtown eateries, shops and the city's entertainment center, Von Braun Center, and to I565 which very quickly connects our guests to Redstone Arsenal, The United States Space and Rocket Center, Bridge Street Town Center and Research Park within 10 minutes. Please Note that VRBO gives the traveler the option of paying a refundable $5000 security deposit or a $99 security fee. We are not able to accept reservations including the $5000 security deposit because VRBO takes their commissions and fees based on the $5000 so we end up with no revenue from such a transaction.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations and hair dryers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

    Great place

    Awesome rental for my family for a weekend in Huntsville. The place had a lot of little things that most places don’t, like coffee and creamers. Great location, felt like home. Will definitely stay again if we come to Huntsville again.

    5/5 Excellent

      Great place to stay for momentous weekend

      Overall very positive experience at The Shooting Star for our son's wedding in Huntsville. Close to town and all relevant wedding locations. House itself is in excellent condition. Comfortable bedding, comprehensive bath supplies, towels, etc, kitchen ready for cooking. Nice to have both Mr. Coffee and Keurig. Only (slight) challenges included tight parking situation, and it would be nice to have a door on the master bath.

      4/5 Good
