The place was very clean, organized and the communication from Acme was great. The location was close to downtown, hiking and grocery stores. Loved the artwork and the attention to details made it feel very welcoming and comfortable. Would definately stay here again!

Great stay at Shag Lovers

5 of 5

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.
