We came for the pool, but we loved everything about it. We had free reign of the lovely vegetable and herb gardens while being surrounded by beautiful flowers and the bees and butterflies that made the garden their home. The fire pit, perfect for evening s'mores, was lovely. The pool was amazing and we really enjoyed the provided pool toys. We've stayed at a number of vacation rentals over the years and this might have been the most comfortable bed we've encountered. Little treats and thoughtful surprises throughout the home.
There's lots of great hiking in the area and we took full advantage. The owners were very kind to all of us and really went the extra mile in helping us with our pre-trip research. The extra cleaning measures that they have taken really helped us to feel comfortable. Overall, a wonderful vacation. Highly recommend.
The Pool House is in Carbondale, IL. We basically swam, ate, and slept. We did not do many outings due to Covid-19. Did visit Flamm Orchards & got some great Peach Jam plus other kinds. We ordered delivery on some food.
We loved the pool, got in usually 3 times a day! Relaxing, very! They have a great garden with veggies and beautiful flowers. The tomatoes were very, very good!
The Pool House had a nice king bedroom, nice shower, kitchen had lots of extras, had upstairs with couch bed. I did not see as didn't climb the stairs.
We basically rented for the private pool. That is what we look for every year.
Had a really great time. D and Jane were wonderful, answered questions, brought us fruit, pumpkin bread, jelly.
The Carbondale pool house is awesome. D & Jane are very nice people. Showed us around the grounds. All the flowers are beautiful. They let us use from the garden which was awesome. We had tomatoes every day.The pool is beautiful& we were in it 3 times everyday. Just can't say enough good things! We are planning on going back again!
The Carbondale Pool House is a lovely bit of paradise in a historic residential area of Carbondale. The house is comfortable with all the amenities you would need, the outdoor pool is a delight and perfect for this summer with limited public swimming pools and lakes. The large and luscious garden is amazing, and guests have a generous seating area and barbecue. We will be back!
Attention to details is what strikes most about the Pool House in Carbondale. Very comfy and close to everything we really enjoyed the flowers and all the birds visiting the garden from time to time. The house is also very well equiped with top internet bandwith and wifi and a great TV set up with numbers of channels and content ready to use. Jane and D. are very special hosts that have lived all accross the US and that love to share what they know about south illinois and the country. We hope to be able to come back.
