The house is gorgeous-filled with lots of nooks for conversation, an open area for meals/ hanging out and a fun man cave to play games in! Darren was a great host. He was quick to respond, full of helpful tips and available if we had questions. We had a wonderfully comfortable stay with several adults and 3 little kids. We will definitely be back!

The place is wonderful plenty of space for everyone. The place looks retro with a splash of modern and it’s just outright cool. The job Darren did designing his location on all three floors of the place is awesome. Will definitely make it a point to come back

Darren by far has been the best host I have had the chance to interact with. The home is exactly as explained. Plenty of space for guests. The large flat screen tvs in each room made the stay even more relaxing. Really enjoyed the front porch and the enclosed back porch.
