Amazing Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sunnyside Tower was amazing. Ben and I booked Sunnyside for our bridal party to stay during our wedding weekend and we had an amazing time. Julie and Pete are wonderful hosts! Julie went above and beyond to help coordinate meals and transportation for our group and everything was done flawlessly. The home is incredible, and friends and family were so impressed with everything and kept telling us how happy they were. All of the little details were amazing, Julie had fresh flowers, custom signs, stickers and so many sweet details that really made Ben and I, and our entire group feel so so so special. I wish we could have stayed longer! I would recommend Sunnyside Tower a million times over, and then even more! We love Juju and Bozo and Sunnyside!!!!

Perfect venue for our family reunion. Julie and Pete made our stay terrific.

  • 5 of 5

We were able to rent the whole house for our family of 28. Every family had their own space in lovely decorated rooms. The shared common areas were spacious for our group. The yard has plenty of room for the 10 children to run and play. The neighboring courts and play grounds were a huge plus. Our family loves to cook meals together. The pantry was stocked, the knives were sharp and whatever cooking utensil or dish we needed was there.

I loved Julie's touches that made our stay personal. The children loved her and called her JuJu like her own grandchildren do. She knew them all by name the first day we were there.

I would highly recommend this Rental property.
