Here Are A Few Kind Words From Our Previous Guests:

“The villa was very comfortable and homey, had off-street parking downtown and was exactly where we wanted it to be: right in the heart of downtown. Annette could not have been better at communicating.” - John

“We had a truly wonderful stay at the Villa on Meridian. Quite clearly the house is gorgeous, a true historical gem. It is also very spacious, clean, well appointed, and accommodating, with more than enough room for our party of 9. The location is great, on a quiet side street yet near downtown.” - Jared

“The place was exactly as described. Our guests had a wonderful time at the house and everyone enjoyed the business meetings we held at the house.” - D. Lucas
