Great location right next to campus

  • 5 of 5

Property worked great for KU orientation and drop off weekend and had everything we needed. College neighbors a bit loud but not unusual for college area rental homes.

Historical Charmer

  • 4 of 5

This historical cottage is really cute and the town of Lawrence has a lot going for it too. The owner was very kind about moving our dates and he went all out to help us. I loved the wood features of the house and the antiques, but some in my group thought the wood stairs were really noisy. Let's just say you knew where everyone was by the creaking of the stairs. I would take charm over quiet stairs! The neighborhood was quiet due to the university year being finished.

Frustrated Stay

  • 3 of 5

This accommodation was quaint and close to the KU campus. It was advertised as having wifi and cable. When we arrived, there was no wifi. After calling the owner many times, he said the wifi problem would be addressed in the morning. We were depending on it to watch a livestreamed event, which we missed. The wifi was checked by someone else, but not fixed. About 8 hours later, someone from across the street came over at the owner's request to offer their wifi password. At this point our stay was almost over and trying to access that wifi was not a reasonable solution. I have since contacted owner to discuss the possibility of a price adjustment for the problem, but the owner has not responded.

Cute with some minor issues

  • 3 of 5

The house was charminng. I loved the modern kitchen and bathroom. It would appear however that the person in charge of hanging mirrors and porch swings is a very tall person. I stand 5'2 and the mirror cut my face off at my chin and my feet were a foot and a half off the ground in the swing. It was defiantly a challenge to climb into with a cup of coffee. The neighborhood obviously has college kids in it who party late into the night. Not the home owners fault

However, not sure I would rent it again due to the noise level.
