Our trip was fantastic. The house was incredible with beautiful views and a great location! It also had all of the amenities you could ask for. Check in was quick and easy. Management was responsive to questions. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there! We’re thinking about staying there again later this year.

Your team members are incredible. Thank you so much for making my experience so great. I don’t think I’ve ever had such great customer service as I’ve had with the VRA team. The instructions for getting the house were incredibly clear, the phone calls I had to answer a couple of questions were with some of the most friendly people I’ve ever talked to from a customer service company, and I had all the information I need at the right time. I even got a text the day of from someone on the team letting me know that the color of the house was getting painted so I knew what to expect when arriving. Overall, a fantastic customer service experience.

Professional, kind, responsive. Quick reply to all my questions. Lovely home that met all of our family’s needs. The two levels were nice in that it gave us room to spread out. The game room with pool table was a lot of fun. Large stocked kitchen and large table where we could cook and gather for meals. Large living room with huge sectional gave us plenty of room to visit and enjoy each other’s company. The driveway in the back provided nice parking. Truly a winter wonderland for our Christmas retreat.

VRA takes all the pain out of trying to find a place to stay on your own. The process was made simple. The prices seemed fair and so will definitely be looking at what VRA has to offer in the future.

Prior to our trip, my emails were answered promptly. Jeremy was very responsive on the weekend when we had problems with the sheets. Skyview Perch will hold a special place in our hearts for years to come. This house provided our family of friends to gather to celebrate our friendship after missing each other for the past twenty months. We started and ended our days sitting on the balcony overlooking the beautiful lake and forest. Many cups of coffee and glasses of wine were enjoyed out there. The house gave us a place to eat, laugh, play and sleep peacefully after a day of exploring the beautiful Northern Idaho surroundings.

Lizzy is awesome! So helpful and pleasant to work with! What a great house! Had everything we needed. Backyard was awesome, plenty of seating and a great outdoor fire pit. And you can’t beat the location – just a few blocks from downtown!

The team at VRA was very responsive to the situations that arose prior to our stay and during our stay. We worked primarily with Lizzy and she was very responsive to everything that came up or that we requested. Our time at Gem Shores was relaxing and peaceful. Just the kind of stay we needed during these crazy times. The quietness was absolutely wonderful. The kitchen was very well equipped, one of the best equipped kitchens we have had in 5 years of vacation rentals.

The team was very communicative and helpful. Everything was as promoted and I appreciated the communication along the way. The view is unbeatable! We enjoyed waking up to the beautiful view of the lake and loved being so close to downtown CDA.
