Everything you need is provided, except for toiletries. Home is completely furnished with charming touches, Bosch appliances, great beds - master with tempurpedic mattress top, delightful sun room, Wisteria covered pagoda with picnic table and much more.

About the Owner
I've been hosting families in my homes in both Western New York and Santa Barbara, California for close to a decade. I love every minute of creating a second home for the guests who visit and oftentimes am blessed to discover lifelong friendships. My website is passionateliving.com and is focused on inspiring viewers to live their dreams … and helping families to feel at home while they travel is something of a dream for me as it brings such joy to my heart.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Our visit to Niagara Falls would not have been complete without our stay at this wonderful property. My grandparents accompanied my family on this trip and were so touched by all of the little extras that came with this rental. Our host was so accommodating and told us all of the best little nooks and crannies to visit at the Falls. The home was clean and charming and we laughed, cooked, shared stories and bonded there. Thank you for such a wonderful visit to Western New York!

Great place, lots of hospitality
Thanks again Cat and Eli for a great stay in WNY!!!
It was such a joy to host you and your family at our sweet home. I'm soooooo happy that you liked your stay here!!!!! I hope that your journey home was smooth and keep up the good work with your writing ... it sounds fabulous!
Comfortable and Spacious Home Away from Home
Warmest wishes to you and your family!!!
Thank you for everything,
Thank you soooo much for your review. It really makes me so happy to know that you and your family had such a great time and that you appreciated the charm of our home. I'm sorry that your son was not feeling well for the trip but I hope that he was able to have some fun during your visit as well.
Again, it really means a lot to hear your review. We had someone recently who didn't really like the country charm of the property and was looking for more of a manicured resort experience and it felt a bit sad to us. We love this home so dearly and take such pride in it's natural beauty. Your words couldn't have come at a better time :) Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I hope to see you again :)
House disappointing, Niagara Falls wonderful
I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Every guest who has stayed with us in the past has shared with me as to how beautiful their experience has been.
I wish you would have let me know that you were having issues during your stay so that they could have been resolved at that point in time and you could have enjoyed yourself even more. Our property is beautiful, clean, sweetly furnished and a vacation rental ... not a hotel. Most vacation rentals provide hand soap, towels, linens, kitchen utensils (if there is a kitchen) and other basics. We provided not only those essentials, but also a bottle of wine, fresh flowers for the rooms and suggestions for restaurants and other such services. Toiletries are to be provided by the guest and we had a large supply of both clean linens and toilet paper in the downstairs bathroom/laundry room had you called to let me know that you required more. You are correct in that we don't have a microwave in the kitchen but after your review, I am happy to provide one as that seems to be a good addition for the rental.
The home is located directly across from a State Park and a retirement home for nuns ... and the traffic that you spoke of is not from a 'nursing home' but from locals who wish to avoid Main Street during rush hour, which only occurs for 45 minutes in the morning and the evening. Our vacation rental is very quiet throughout the remainder of the day and night and feels more like the country than the suburbs, with visits from local deer and rabbits at sunset.
This is a wonderful option for vacationing in the WNY area as the home includes four bedrooms, a living and dining room, full kitchen, sun room and manicured yard that is intentionally set up in an English style to be more "country like" in it's charm ... and no hotel could provide all of that for the price that we do.
I am so sorry that your experience was not more joyful and I hope that in the future that if you encounter any issues with a property, that you talk with the owner or manager so that they can resolve your concerns and provide you with a better experience. Again, I will take your suggestion for a microwave in our kitchen area and appreciate your feedback.
the owners of this property take care to ensure that you feel it is alls et just for you!!!little details that truly ward off any fears of having booked a unseen property over the internet from thousands of miles away!!(we flew in from Dubai)I would recommend this property to ALL !
keep up the good work proud owners!
(ps:an additional washroom facility would be a grt adv!)
Thank you again and I look forward to your next visit!
From the Owner
“I chose this property as it was very different than many of the "modern" homes in the area. The charm of the old 1040's tri-level, right across from a beautiful State Park felt more like the country than the suburbs to me. The yard is organic, having not been sprayed by me or the owner prior, and it is filled with flowers, herbs, grape vines, Wisteria and more. The only two times of the day when there is traffic is during "drive time," so the quiet and charm of the area is remarkable, being that it is so close to the airport, Buffalo and Niagara Falls. The town of Williamsville is one of the safest in the country and yet offers the convenience of spas, restaurants, parks and our own beautiful waterfall called Glen Falls.”
