Sandy greeted us and immediately made us feel welcome. We were the only guests in the basement suite. The second room was not occupied until our last night. Her basement space has two very comfortable bedrooms and large shared living area. Everything was a new. Bed was super comfortable. Sandy stocked the place with coffee, juice, drinks, her mom's yummy homemade muffins, several kinds of breads for toast, fresh fruit and snacks. The single (shared) bathroom has a "carwash" sized shower with overhead showerhead. Very relaxing. Street parking was effortless (no sticker needed) as each night we parked directly in front of the house. All in all....A great stay.

Staying in Sandy's place was such a good experience. She was willing to stay up while I made my way from OHare after a late flight. Since I hadn't had dinner I was pleasantly surprised that she had stocked up the kitchenette with all kinds of snacks and drinks. It felt like staying in a nice hotel except this place is spacious. The room was pretty private and everything from the features to furniture seemed new. I would definitely stay here again.

We chose this location because it was a mile from my sister who my mother and I were visiting, however, it was such a close, easy drive to andersonville where we shopped and ate and also to the beach where we spent a lovely afternoon. Sandy was incredibly kind and helpful at check-in and all amenities were clean, brand new and plentiful. Wonderful stay!!
