Guest Reviews

We stayed at Jay's play for a month during a move. by Audrey 09/01/2016
We stayed at Jay's play for a month during a move. It was so unbelievably comfortable and wonderful. The location is fantastic, very walkable to thing on Lamar. The porch is dreamy. The layout is great -- we were there with two kids and it felt spacious and quiet. The apartment has a ton of little amenities that so many hosts neglect: TONS of towels, blackout shades in the bedrooms, a tote bag for shopping, coffee ready to go, ambient lighting in the living room so when you get up in the middle of night you dont' stub a toe, extremely comfortable couch.

I just don't have enough great things to say about our stay. The beds were comfortable. The parking was easy. Jay was always available to answer questions. It felt very private. The AC was great. The design of the interior was beautiful. The kitchen was well appointed, and we were able to cook as much as we wanted.

Staying at Jay's place made our transition so seasmless and easy, and I have already recommended it to our family and friends who will be coming to visit in the coming month.
I was very pleased with the unit I rented from VacationCake. by Vicki 03/10/2015
I was very pleased with the unit I rented from VacationCake. Jay was wonderful. Helpful, accommodating, and on-spot with any questions I had. Jay took care of everything from having the leaves raked, deck cleared, and area pruned. He even took out the trash!

One thing that is out of Jay's control is the party people next door and the incessant barking dog. Those are things he has no control over. I thought the dog would drive me over the edge!!!!

I certainly enjoyed my time in the unit as it is a mile and half from my daughter who gave birth to our twins on October 26th. The babies are the reason I did the VRBO. It was very convenient. I was so happy to be in such close proximity to my grand babies.

Thank you for a great place to stay! God Bless and hope all goes well in the future.

This is a great duplex just a block from S. Lamar, in a great neighborhood and crazy close to downtown and South Congress. The beds are extremely comfy - I slept better than I have in ages. And the patio is lovely; definitely take some time to enjoy a cup of coffee out there! Jay will bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable - and follow his advice on food recommendations. I loved my stay here, and I am pretty sure you will too.
