Please look at airbnb website, it will tell you the full price. Airbnb adds a fee that varies, so please call them if you have questions about the price. If you have problems making reservations, difficulty with the site/mobile app, etc, Airbnb is available 24 hours a day.
Once your reservation is confirmed, it is very important that you read the directions to our house. We look forward to your stay.
We definitely recommend having a car to get around Oklahoma City. The public transport is not good here. Oklahoma City is one of the largest city by land mass. So, that means the city is very spread out.
No Smoking in the house. If you have a dog, message me and tell me why I can trust your dog in our home. Please be respectful of our home and belongings. Please recycle. Leave the home even nicer than you found it :).
First time with airbnb so just learning how to work things, although we have regularly done vacation rentals in both the US and Europe with up to 11 people. Brooke was very responsive and pleasant in all our interactions. We had a few minor issues on arrival, primarily with a non-working door code and the setup for the 4th bedroom with an air mattress issue, but once those were resolved everything went great.
When we got locked out of the house, with 2 children, Brooke responded to a text immediately and got us into the house and out of the OK heat. From what we could tell, the door code just hadn't locked in right and we had to get an alternate code, so nothing major, just inconvenient and some momentary panic.
One learning for us was to be more explicit in listing exactly the number of people and rooms/beds that will be used. We had to scramble a little with the double air mattress that a previous guest had damaged and not told (website hidden), we started out with 2 people sleeping on a single size air mattress. However, once we got clearance from Brooke to get a patch and fix the mattress, we were all good. We also didn't think to specify that we had a baby and could use a crib. It turned out that there was one available as well.
The house is a little far out there in NW OKC, but access between two major roads made getting in and out for OKC and Norman events very easy. There is plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable and the open kitchen, eating, family room is open which worked well with our group. Unfortunately, there is only a small table with higher, bar sized chairs which limits the group eating space and made it more challenging for us to have a larger group playing strategy board games and cards which is standard for us. The 4th bedroom is apparently the exercise room, complete with a dance pole, so you need to let Brooke know if you need that room so the air mattress and room can be set up and checked ahead of arrival.
I would recommend trying to check in directly in-person with Brooke. If we had done that, we could have avoided the noise that happened up front. Even without that and with texting as the primary form of communication, Brooke was very responsive in getting through the initial hiccups and getting us settled into the house.
There are a few things that could be done to make things smoother around the house, but all minor. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, although I'm not sure how many trips I am likely to be making to OKC that would require a whole house.
The house is great. It is a very nice layout for everyone to have their own space and a little privacy, while still allowing for group meals and such. I was traveling with two colleagues and we all felt very comfortable. Laundry room, backyard and ample parking made our whole trip very smooth. And as hosts,you couldn't ask for better, flexible and responsive to our few questions.
Aaron and Brooke are super friendly and very prompt with answering all questions and helping with everything we needed! The house was gorgeous, clean, spacious, and in a good area. We loved it. I recommend this house to anyone visiting, the hosts are great!

Great house! Very clean and comfortable to stay in. There was plenty of sleep space for all of us. It was a little far from downtown, but that wasn't a big deal. Overall we had a great time in this home! It was perfect for my group of 7 to stay for the weekend.

About the Host, Aaron And Brooke
Hello, I have always had a passion to travel, so I travel as often as I can. I enjoy immersing myself into other cultures and there is no better way to do that than airbnb. We used airbnb for the first time when I worked in New York for a couple of months starting in January of last year. We fell in love with airbnb and have been blessed from all the wonderful experiences. We are happy to open our home to you. We have a four bedroom home that we will try our best to accommodate your needs. We can rent out the mater king bedroom with its own private bathroom or a room with a full size bed. The other rooms are rented out to a couple of full time students. My wife and I both work 2 jobs each and are busy socializing and traveling when we aren't working. So, we do not spend a lot of time at home. I am a musician, and my wife is a registered nurse who does a lot of travelling with her job. We look forward to hearing from you!
