Life was good at Life is Good Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay than Life is Good. We loved the house and location. We had everything we needed from enough linens to a well equipped kitchen. One suggestion is to get a coffee maker that shuts off after 2 hours. With a house full of people on vacation it's easy to forget to turn it off when you go out to enjoy the area.

We really enjoyed the fenced in yard!! We had two young children with us so we spent time in the yard each day.

It would be helpful to have more information provided about the street parking regulations at the front of the house.

Merle and Halina were wonderful hosts. They were helpful and accommodating from start to finish!! Thank you!

Very Nice!

  • 4 of 5

The property and home was in great condition and met our needs perfectly as we were a group of 9. The house was clean and up to date with appliances and several a/c units that were able to meet the demand during some very warm days. The internet was weak and didn't work at all when more than two people were accessing. But, really other than periodic checking of email we were out and about most of the time.

One disparaging note is we were misinformed regarding the street parking and which side to use the first night we were there. One of the cars did get a parking ticket. There are no signs on the street explaining this and the owners during the walk thru thought it was one side, when in fact it was the other.

Lastly, there is a carpet in the downstairs bedroom that we moved into the closet because it has a urine smell. We did replace it before we left. It might need a cleaning.

Overall, the owners were timely, informative and helpful in getting us acclimated to the house and area,

We really did have a good time!

Old Historic House where the price is right

  • 4 of 5

My entire family (16 of us total) stayed the weekend in Halina and Merle's house, and while the neighborhood and much of Niagara Falls seems largely left behind, their house offered the perfect respite after a couple long days touring the sites. It enjoys a great location within close proximity to the Falls and downtown, although I'm not sure you'd want to walk there in the evening.

A couple things were missing like the outdoor grill and some basic home supplies (trash bags and paper towels were in short order), and the sheets were a little scratchy, but the price was right and the owners were nice to accommodate an early arrival. All in all a good value deal.

Beautiful house, the nicest owners, but near rough neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The house was awesome, modernized and clean. The location is within walking distance to the casino, the few strip of bars they have and even Canada! There's a grocery store and liquor store as well that is close by. The owners were so sweet! Only issue is that it's on the border of a tough rundown neighborhood that is scary to walk through at night

House was exactly what we needed for our family group of 11!

  • 5 of 5

I decided we should try something new and rent a house instead of multiple motel rooms so we could be together easier and do our own cooking. Since we were a large group, I was looking for a house with 5 bedrooms and enough beds for the 11 of us to each be comfortable. I was also looking for a nice usable kitchen, plenty of room in the living room and dining rooms and at least 2 bathrooms. The 'Life is Good' vacation home fit all of our needs and then some! The home is a beautiful, well kept and well equipped, turn of the century old house in the historic part of town. Since we were within walking distance of the Falls, we walked there instead of driving, enjoying the views along the way. The owners took great care of us and were so helpful with everything! Also prompt in answering my emails with lots of questions and texts as we got closer to arrival. Overall, our first time using a VRBO property was a great success! I'm looking forward to renting a house/condo instead of a motel again when we travel. It was like coming home instead of going to a motel! Our grown kyds also give it 5 stars! It was the best Thanksgiving away from home we could possibly have - especially with all our family gathered around!

Wonderful home in Niagara Falls!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Niagara Falls, and this was the perfect home for our family to all be together in! There was plenty of space, everything was clean, well-maintained, and it had all the supplies we could have asked for. The location of this home was perfect--we could walk to take the free trolley around town, and walked to a few nearby attractions. We also took in a Bills game and that was an easy drive. The owners were a pleasure to work with-they answered all of our questions quickly and had lots of great tips about the area.
