I planned a trip for my husband birthday with some close friends as a surprise to him. As soon as I saw the location and pictures I knew this would be the perfect spot. The home is beautiful inside and out. And let me say the location was absolutely perfect close to downtown and shopping stores. The property management was always quick with responses when needed. We cant wait to book our next trip here again.

Everything was really great!! And I know that some people have commented about the street/car noise so I will add that it’s actually very significant, and might be worth adding that caveat into the description. We figured it out as best we could by putting city folk in the rooms on the street, but honestly, when larger cars drove over the bridge/overpass, the house shook. This didn’t in any way change the fun time we had, but it was for sure an adjustment. Also, the management and service people were the best!! Hugely responsive and prompt — and super nice. Thanks for a great stay!

Great stay at Shag Lovers

My group thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shag Lovers vacation rental. The house is in a great location, great amenities and super clean. The property management company, Acme, was easy to work with and super responsive. The only small negative was the road noise during high traffic times. Overall, great stay!

Great value for the price. Super convenient location. I cook and the kitchen was super functional. Great pool and hot tub. Bathrooms super nice. The only potential drawback of the property is that the house is on a corner lot with one of the streets being a major thoroughfare. I was a little apprehensive but it ended up being somewhat of a non issue for me. It was more city noise than anything and by the end of the trip I didn't notice it as much. Also one less neighbor. I would definitely rent the house again without hesitation.

The house, yard and pool are lovely--very clean, comfortable and peaceful. The check-in and out process was very easy, and they kept in touch and gave us everything we needed throughout. Grocery shopping is within walking distance including a natural foods store. There's also a bike rental shop nearby. Really perfect location. We loved it.
