    The place and set up was awesome! Nice views and very spacious! The creek right by the house was very fun to explore! Can’t wait to come back during the warmer months sometime!
  2. 5/5
    Enjoyed our stay in the Blue House @ Rocky Bayou. Close enough for all the activities in and around Mountain View. The creek was a big hit with our Grandsons. Little cold, but they braved it everyday. (Spring Break) Hot tub was worth the extra cost, and the fire pit was a must everynight. We planned on unplugging the kids for a few days, but the WiFi worked better than ours at home 😂 We booked for 2 nights initially, and ask to extend our stay an extra night. Ivy’s Rentals took very good care of us while we were there. Text a couple of times and had answers very quickly. One little tiny thing is the house is rather close to the Highway, but was not a problem for our 8 and 10 year old grandsons. We would stay again given the opportunity.

    My family and I enjoyed our stay at this home. It was very neat and quite comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. My only minor complaint would be that it would be very nice to have a better stocked kitchen. Just a minor investment of sugar, flour and spices would be tremendously helpful.

    Everything was great and the blue house was perfect for our group of 12. There are so many special touches and the decor is gorgeous. We enjoyed the hot tub!
  5. 5/5
    Everything was wonderful. There wasn't a thing we needed. Whoever supplied this house did a great job anticipating what was needed. Soft fluffy towels, lots of bedrooms and a great place for us to hang out. Will definitely rent again if ever in the Mountain View area.
  6. 5/5
    This house was everything we had expected and more! Every base was definitely covered by this team when planning everything a rental could have to offer. The house was spotless and equipped with all of the amenities one could need. The views were beautiful and the atmosphere was so relaxing. My only complaint is that I didn’t want to leave! It truly is a home away from home and we were able to relax and we all had a great time. We will most definitely be back!

    The Blue House was one of the cleanest and best stocked places we have rented. Our Grandchildren loved the big back yard, Hot tub, exploring the creek, and chasing butterflies. Per their conversation - "this is the best vacation we have ever had"! It was a very relaxing family vacation spot.
  8. 5/5
    I booked the Blue House for my sons wedding. It has a beautifully shaded back yard that really served the purpose exceptionally well. It was a very memorable event and we were able to get some great outdoor photos. The house is large and spacious and easily accommodated the out-of-town family and friends staying there. It was also well stocked with anything that we needed to host such an event. Overall all an outstanding weekend with all guests happy and impressed with the venue choice.

    We had a wonderful stay!!! Thank you so much for sharing the rental with our family

    Our family group included five adults and four kids aged 3-12. Everyone slept comfortably and enjoyed the space. The king size bed was super comfortable! Kitchen and baths were well equipped. Great to have laundry room on site. Furnishings were new and stylish, though some small details of the house itself could use attention. (Our tips: add accessible strings to ceiling fans/lights; label light switches; install simple screen doors on exterior to minimize bugs and such while main door remains open.) Very easy to get around the area for sightseeing. We would stay here again with a large group!

    The house has so many points it is difficult to name all of them. They are close to Mt. View. The house sits right off of the highway but surprisingly the traffic did not bother us all at night. Everything you needed was provided. The towels were soft and the bedding was nice. It was well decorated and had plenty of room for our family. The extra living space was great. We enjoyed the creek out back, the fire pit, the deck, sunroom and the grill. The managers were nice and helpful. My daughter made the comment that it was a "perfect" place for our family mini-vacation. We definitely would like to go back and hopefully stay longer.

    We stayed at the Blue House and had a wonderful experience. The House was very clean and spacious and there was a fully stocked kitchen. Lots of room to spread out and a large back yard. Kids loved the creek and fire pit to cook hotdogs and roast marshmallows! We had a wonderful time! Thanks, Kim Crouch

    Nice place for a big group. No issues with our stay.
  14. 5/5
    We loved this place! It was a last minute booking and they were so accommodating. The layout was great. All three of us had our own space to escape to when we needed privacy, but there were great communal places as well. We sat and visited while cooking dinner. We played board games and watched tv. The outside is beautiful. The sun porch off the master bedroom was my favorite. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
  15. 4/5
    Our party of 4 found this 4 bedroom a fine place to stay. The beds were comfortable and the home’s large living rooms allows for folks to find their own spaces. I would note for other parties that the second bathroom can only be reached by passing through bedrooms, so there is no true master. Additionally, there is a smoke detector in the kitchen. Where we are from it is against code to have smoke detectors in the kitchen. It went off two times, once while toasting bread and again whole boiling perhaps they should look into changing the location of the device. The hot tub was a plus, and worth the additional fee: it kept its temperature and was clean:-) It is on the highway, but in Mountain View Arkansas that doesn’t mean it is loud, we only food the highway traffic load while outside.
  16. 5/5
    We had a great time. It’s decorated beautifully, and has all the necessities for a home away from home vacation. Our boys really enjoyed crawdad/tadpole/minnow catching in the creek just behind the house. It’s just far enough from the city you can be isolated, but close enough to spend your days roaming downtown or visiting the folk center (which is my FAVORITE thing to do!). Cell reception in this part of the state can be terrible but this house has fabulous WiFi. Also, we had a door stick and as soon as we mentioned it to the ivy team, then sent someone out ASAP. 10/10 highly recommend to anyone.
  17. 5/5
    This is a beautiful house set in a beautiful location. MY family had a wonderful weekend away. The house is updated and the owners have everything you could wish for. Nice clean, relaxing place to stay. The house is set right along the river. There is a fire pit in the backyard with lots of firewood available. I cannot say enough kind things about the owners. They are extremely responsive and helpful if you do need something. Great place to get away!
  18. 5/5
    We stayed over the Christmas holiday! The house was very roomy and had everything we needed! We enjoyed the hot tub immensely!! The grounds were absolutely breathtaking and we also built a fire in the fire pit (which came stocked with wood).. It was also very close to some excellent hiking adventures!! The communication was very clear and the response was timely... Overall, we are toying with the idea of coming here again in the summer!!! Thank you so much!!!
  19. 5/5
    Love love love! Looking forward to going back!
  20. 5/5
    Will be coming back!! Perfect little getaway for me and my family!!
  21. 5/5
    Absolutely the BEST experience we have ever had with a vacation rental! Very accommodating and beautiful property! We will definitely be back!
  22. 5/5
    I can’t say enough how much my family enjoyed our weekend at The Blue House....The communication with the hosts was excellent not only where they quick to respond to any questions they sent us ideas of things to do in the area on a rainy day .... The weather was the the only downfall of our weekend but we did not let that stop us!! The house is very spacious in a very peaceful area... right in the backyard there is not only a fire pit but a river stream right beyond the gate.. We explored (took advantage of a break in the rain) up stream and found a small waterfall...we even played in the creek.. surprisingly the water wasn’t to cold to walk around in and play in for a little bit!! (The kids even found a crawfish 🦐)... We took beautiful pictures, read while listening to the rain on the sun porch, cooked out fajitas on the grill on the back deck and started a fire in the fire pit for s’mores!!! We will most definitely return in the future!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY

    well appointed house with large backyard and creek access
  24. 4/5
    We enjoyed our stay. The hot tub was out of order and we really looked forward to that but definitely not a deal breaker. Hopefully we can stay again soon.
  25. 5/5
    We had a wonderful time staying at the Blue House. It was large enough for our family to spread out. We cooked hot dogs over the firepit, caught and released crawdads in the creek, caught and released fireflies, watched bunnies eating grass, had a comfortable place to stay while it was raining outside. My family from Mountain View dropped in at different times to visit and we were all comfortable. I left my orthopedic pillow behind by accident. I got in touch with them when I noticed it was not in my van (in Mississippi) and they got back with me to let me know that they retrieved it. My sister went to their office and picked it up for me. I will get it back. Thank goodness. Even though the house has 14 in front of it, most of the time you didn't hear the traffic unless you were outside. We didn't use the grill. It was a little too weather weary to be used. So many things were there for our use. Do remember to bring soap, shampoo and things like that. Such a comfy place to stay. Thank you for allowing us the accommodations.

    Our family had a great time at The Blue House. There was 6 adults and 5 kids we had plenty of room. We all enjoyed the creek behind the house. We had an issue with the garbage disposal and they fixed it right away. Just a wonderful experience all around.
  27. 5/5
    The Blue House is a perfect base to explore the Ozarks!
  28. 5/5
    We are a team of three guys that work together every day. Occasionally we have to stay overnight, and have just recently started doing Airbnb instead of hotels. This house was very much like home and fit our needs perfectly. I would not hesitate staying here again!!

    Lovely little house

    My children and I frequently visit Mountain View; however, we are from Batesville so we just drive the 45 minutes home. We decided to take a spur-of-the-moment vacation, and Ivy Rental quickly facilitated our trip with ease. Danielle was super friendly and immediately accommodating with adequate directions and a newsletter with local dinning options and current activities - we thoroughly enjoyed our rental; it was so cozy and inviting- the hot tub was so serene and rewarding after a long day of hiking at Blanchard and the Amphitheatre and junking downtown. We enjoyed making a fire in the back and listening to the nighttime bugs and creek- as the moon sat brilliantly above us! We will be returning fro this exact property and inquiring about other properties they have! Thank you for helping us create memories!
  31. 5/5
    We had a great stay at the blue house and would definitely consider staying with ivy vacations again in the future.
  32. 5/5
    We loved the size of the house. Loved the backyard, exploring the stream, and relaxing in the hot tub! The sunroom was so peaceful. ,,,
  33. 4/5
    Everything was great except we put new batteries in the remotes to watch tv. I would address the space between the house and the deck accident waiting to happen. Me and my crew would stay there again.
  34. 5/5
    The Blue House and amenities are top notch! Stayed for the weekend with my riding group and were so impressed! We had 10 girls and the house was plenty big. So clean and everything you could ever need. We paid for the hot tub access and it was definitely worth it after riding from Nashville. Fire pit was used every night for hot dogs and s’mores. We can’t wait to come back! Highly recommend!
  35. 5/5
    We had a great experience staying at the Blue House. My kids loved playing in the creek.
  36. 4/5
    We really enjoyed staying in the Blue House. My husband had to do a Zoom meeting for work while we were there and I liked how there were separate living spaces so we all had room to do what we needed to do. My daughter and I spent a lot of time reading on the cute sunporch, and my husband and I used the hot tub every day. We enjoyed walking to the creek and watching the cows, and had a weenie roast around the fire pit one evening. Everything we wanted to do was only minutes away and easy to reach. We hope to get to stay here again.
  37. 5/5
    Great accommodations for our 5 grandchildren. Nothing fancy just “kid friendly”. Two Separate living areas made it conducive for adults who were working remotely. Visit to the Ozark Folk Art Center was interesting .

    It was the best house to stay in the Mountain View
