Beautiful home in great neighborhood!

by Saint Louis MO

4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying in Prominence. This was our fifth year staying in this area but first time in this home. The home itself is spacious, great location and good for families with kids! The only negatives we had is the kitchen didn’t have much to use for cooking like pans, utensils for cooking etc. And the overall condition of the home showed signs of wear and tear, dirty walls and floors and dirty couch. That needs to be addressed. But overall we were happy with the location and spacious rooms.

Not our favorite stay on 30a

by Hoffman Estates IL

4 of 5

This house was well decorated but bare bones. It was spacious and comfortable (except for the couch and chairs in living room). The kitchen has minimal equipment and no extras (salt & pepper were nowhere to be found and cooking a spaghetti dinner proved challenging with lack of equipment). The location was ideal, close to the pool and right across the street from the big chill. Beds were soft but comfortable. We did have a few minor inconveniences with a clogged toilet and broken bed frame in master bedroom. The bed frame was met with much more urgency than the plumbing issue (which we resolved ourselves) by the management team. The unit was fairly clean, but the floors were not mopped and left your feet dirty if walking barefoot.

Beautiful Property, Great Location!

by Alpharetta GA

5 of 5

Fantastic stay for my family and my dog. It was a short walk to the hub across the street and then about a 5 min drive to the beach. House was very cutely decorated and clean. The only negative experience I had was with the early check-in process. It was very frustrating by not getting a call back about early check-in and then had to wait till 2pm for the management company to say we weren't able to. Besides that, it was a great trip.

Great property but needs a couple of things to make perfect

by SMyrna GA

5 of 5

Love this property and the location. The only downsides to the property were the master bedroom has very tall windows and the upper ones do not have any kind of blinds or curtains and when the sun rises the light blinds you while sleeping. need blinds up there. Also could really use a full length mirror. Beds were ok but a mattress topper would do wonders. Only real downside was the previous renters did not take garbage out as instructed to dumpsters and it was left in trash cans in garage with watermelon rinds not bagged up and there were maggots in the trash can that we had to clean out.
