Holly was so accommodating and hospitable, the house was beautiful and perfect for what we needed, and everything went together perfectly! I highly recommend booking this home. Like I said, it's beautiful and modern. Perfect for photo shoots, video shoots, or a meeting!
I really wanted to love this space, but it didn't work well for our crew. As soon as I stepped in, I noticed that the house did not reflect the photos. There were tons of clutter because the family actually lives there. I did contact the owner and within 20 minutes he came back to help us move some of it out. Also, I know it was raining, but the space was quite a bit darker than the images as well. The owner needs to add in square footage because the house was a lot smaller than we thought it would be. One the posting, the last image shows a master bedroom, which now is converted into two smaller rooms. Overall, the photos on this site really need to be updated.
Absolutely LOVE this venue. We've rented it twice, and we still love it! The lighting is gorgeous, and the design is to die for! Holly is very responsive and very kind! This was perfect for our film shoots here, and we plan on coming back soon!
Holly's space is designed beautifully and has plenty of natural light, which made every angle look amazing. It was a pleasure working with Holly throughout the entire process!
The Space was awesome! Great lighting for our shoot, everything was very clean and Holly was so sweet and helpful. Amazing space, great experience would use it again!
