    The home is beautiful, very clean, and extremely comfortable. We rented Rick's home in preparation for our daughters graduation from Samford University nearby. Instead of several hotel rooms for members of my family, this worked out terrific! We walked around in pajama's for hours, visited all day into the night, had a chance to catch up with each other, and simply walk to one of the four large rooms with two beautiful queen beds in each to rest! And then we got to do it ALL again the next day! The home is well appointed! We had guests for lunch in between the ceremonies. (Catered NEWKS restaurant with delivery!) Our guests were so impressed with the beautiful kitchen and great room, porch and view! I heard over and over: "What a great idea to rent a home instead of hotel rooms!" The golfers in the family were in awe of the course, especially since there was NO time to play on this very busy weekend! Instead, the game of pool became a serious pastime for many! We will be back! Thanks also to Rick who answered questions quickly and showed such an interest in our plans and comfort!

    We have been renting a house for Christmas for the last few years because our family has grown and our son lives in Birmingham, works retail, and has to work holiday hours. We all agreed that this house was PERFECT for us! It was immaculate. The four bedrooms with their own beautiful bathrooms were spacious and, as others have commented, the beds are wonderful! The kitchen was perfect for holiday cooking with its double oven and gas range. Our family especially loved the pool table. The living room is big enough to accommodate a large family with its sectional sofa that seats 8. We enjoyed the screened in porch, too! Rick is awesome!!

  • Perfect accommodations for a perfect golf trip!

    The house is exactly as advertised - HUGE! 4 masters, each with 2 queens and adjoining bathrooms. With Rick's permission/blessing, 12 women piled in for a perfect golf adventure. We cooked and found the kitchen to be well equipped and beautiful; 2 washers and dryers with detergent. . . sweet! Overhead fans and flat screen TVs in each bedroom! We don't play poker but card games every bit as serious and costly - and the big square table even fits 12. We did play pool - a nice addition. Keyless entry - simple. Generous supply of paper products. The proximity to the Oxmoor courses and Ross Bridge (OMG, what a course! excellent dinner also) make this location especially convenient - you can easily walk to the Oxmoor club house + only an hour's drive to Prattville (we played The Judge only . . .scenic beyond words). A couple in our group had played some of the RTJ courses - we all agreed that the 4 we played were top quality, reasonably priced - we also felt the rental cost was reasonable. What would make this better?? Maybe a dozen Pro V1s in each bedroom, chilled beer/wine in the fridge upon arrival. Needless to say, we hope to return to this . . . .or any other Oster House.

  • Perfect for a large group

    Our golf group of 8 from Dallas, TX took our yearly "buddies trip" to RTJ Birmingham this year and stumbled upon this jewel to stay in. It's actually the closest house to the Oxmoor Valley clubhouse, which is super convenient before and during your rounds. Ross Bridge is 2 miles away and another fantastic course, with what appears to be the closest restaurant open after dark as the Oxmoor Valley grill closes at 4pm. Stop on your way and pick up a few groceries. There are enough condiments, etc in the fridge/cabinet to supplement what you need to get started on your first day. *Pizza Hut Delivers All 8 of our group said: "This is perfect for what we need".

    Thanks for taking time to write a review even after the disappointment of Tony Romo getting injured! I was very fortunate to find this acre of land near the Oxmoor Valley Clubhouse. (I won't bore you with the details, but its so close you can walk, or call the pro-shop and the "cart boys" will pick you up.) Next time you stay with us, you might want to let us "grocery shop" for you before you arrive. Simply send us your list and our care-taker will purchase everything and have it waiting for you. That's one of my favorite services that we provide. It saves time and gets the party started immediately!

  • Guys Getaway Golf Vacation

    Golfers, if you are going to play golf in the Birmingham area and looking for a place to call home for a week, look no further, this is the place! Four large bedrooms all with queen beds and flatscreen tv's and all with a large private bath and large shower (which feels great after a round of golf). The house is a driver shot from Oxmoor Valley Golf Course. After a day of golf and before the sunset we would head to the putting green for a little extra practice. The staff at Oxmoor Valley are familiar with the house and always offered us a cart ride home. The house is perfectly arranged for four couples or as in our case eight guys looking for a place to hang out. Great kitchen and dining room with everything you need to cook in. We used the BBQ several times and during the evening sat out on the screened porch for a cool evening overlooking the golf course. Two laundy rooms is a little bonus as well. We are from California and for the eight of us our first time to Alabama. We played six rounds in five days and drove as far as an hour an a half to play Capitol Hill (36 holes) and Silver Lake. Played both courses at Oxmor Valley as well as Ross Bridge. Can't say enough about the house, a lot better than staying in a local hotel. If you are heading to Alabama for some great golf you owe to yourself to stay and play at this great house! It is everything promised.

We cooked in 4 nights and the kitchen was very spacious and had lots of items that travelers would need, but would not want to buy for just a few days.

  • Perfect golf house for 8 men!

    Our group of 8 college buddies stayed in this incredible home for our 6th annual golf trip. Important components of our trip are sharing great meals and watching SEC football, plus just having space to hang out. Everything about this home was well thought out to provide an exceptional experience, from the HDTV's in every room to the plush mattresses, huge well-equipped kitchen, screened in porch, gas grill, room for 8 to sit and watch football, pool table, large square dining room table that 8 men can share with enough room for all. The layout of the home provides quiet sleeping away from the hub of the kitchen, so late sleepers can catch a few more z's while early risers make the coffee. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a huge walk-in shower (because who needs a bath tub in a man cave?). We all wondered what might be done in the basement to make this place even more fun. Bowling alley for rainy days? We also have high praise for the folks who clean this home since everything was in brand new spotless condition. We are already scanning our calendars to agree on dates to rent this again next year, which is the highest compliment that can be given to any rental home. Thanks for building such a perfectly designed home for a guys golf trip! We will be back!

  • Fantastic golf trip

    My group couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay at the Oster golf house. We've never stayed directly on the course before, and especially at a home where you can walk out the front door to the clubhouse. The pictures of the home don't do it justice. It's full of extra touches that many VRBO rentals lack. We like variety in our annual golf trip, but we expect to be back, as this offering is hard to pass up. The golf is good, but the home is better. It's a no brainer vs. staying in a hotel. We didn't get to play Ross Bridge due to maintenance, but Oxmoor's nice enough. If you are coming from Atlanta, consider hitting Silver Lakes on the way in. Very challenging and well manicured course.

  • Awesome Experience

    Rick, What a great idea you had with your golf houses. We all agreed this trip bested our Pinehurst trip, and much is a result of this house. The house contained everything we ever needed and your hospitality was fantastic. Work on those pizza delivery companies as they still won't deliver there. We'll be back next year, and possibly a side trip to Bandon Dunes as well. Thanks again!

    Wow, better than Pinehurst! I happen to agree, because I think the RTJ Trail is the best kept secret in the country. If you're looking for challenging golf courses and an ideal setting, you won't be disappointed. By the way, Pizza Hut delivers to the house :)

  • Great house and golf

    The house is better than advertised. The house is huge and open. Very nice, new furniture, bedding, sheets and towels. Bedrooms and bathrooms are big and nice. Screened-in porch is perfect for after golf cocktails. Golf courses are Oxmoor Valley courses are 4 star; Ross Bridge is 5 star. 8 guys stayed here very comfortably. Best house we've stayed out in 10+ years of golf trips. I can't say enough good things about the house. Very similar to his house at Bandon Dunes. Thanks, Mark

    The house was everything it was advertised and more!!! Immaculate condition, no expense spared for the house....Location was perfect and open floor plan was great for hanging out and rehashing our rounds of golf. The owner thought of everything, from the plasmas in every room, to the WI-Fi for those that still needed to connect back for work, to the gas grill for steaks after the round, to the IPOD dock stations in each room, just to name a few.... A must stay for a large group, that not only keeps everyone together, but it cheaper and nicer than any hotel you would want to stay at in the area.... Do your golf group a favor and book this house next time at RTJ Trail... Thanks again, Rick....Will be calling about your house in Bandon Dunes next year when we go out there

  • Excellent for a guys golf trip

    Everything was great! Owner was helpful, friendly, responsive. Good quality house. Clean. Plenty of space for 8 guys. Beds were comfortable. Nice amenities and finishes (5 plasma TVs, wifi, screened in porch, 2 washer/dryers, 2 AC units, etc.). Everything was as nice as advertised. We also used it as home base for visiting Tuscaloosa for the Alabama game. Only downside is proximity to retail and restaurants was just a little farther than we'd have liked....but was definitely manageable. Also, since the house is new, address was not easy to find by navigation system. We knew this ahead of time, but it did cause some challenges/delays with having food delivered or taxi pickup. We got through it, but it would have helped if the owner had a list of these services that are good, close by, and easy way to explain (or that knew how to get there). Not something we expected necessarily, but would have been a nice touch. Overall, EXCELLENT. If and when we go back to the RTJ Trail, we'd definitely stay at this house again. Thanks so much Rick!

    Thank you, John, for giving us the highest rating possible! It sounds like you guys had a great time. For future guests, there are numerous restaurants and retail stores close to the house. The Ross Bridge Resort is 1.2 miles away and has two good restaurants. In fact, they have one of the best breakfast buffets you'll ever find. If that doesn't interest you, the following places are less than 5 miles from our front door, on Lakeshore Parkway: Landry's Steakhouse, Hooter's (just sayin), Bruno's Supermarket, Starbuck's, Overtime Sportsbar & Grill, Outback Steakhouse, IHOP, WalMart, Sam's... and many more. To make your stay even more enjoyable, let us do the shopping for you. Simply email your grocery list to us and we will take care of the rest. Everything will be in the kitchen when you arrive! As far as directions, some GPS systems don't recognize newly constructed homes. In that case, simply use the address of the Oxmoor Valley Golf Clubhouse: 100 Sunbelt Parkway, Birmingham, AL, 35211. We are only 175 yards from the clubhouse, on the same street. You have to drive past our home to get to the clubhouse. There are only four homes on the street and we are the last one on the right. I want to apologize to John because there should be a binder in the home providing this information. Thanks to him, I will get that binder finished asap!

  • Awesome home on the RTJ Trail!!!

    This house was done right! It has four rooms with 2 beds each. Each has a private full bath and there is a 1/2 bath off the living room. The kitchen is open and looks out over the living making it very easy to cook and still be part of the group. We were there as a group of 6 guys and we'd totally rent this house again if we head back to the trail. This house is also the very last house before you get to the golf course, so you can't get any closer. You're also right on the 10th fairway so you can stop by to freshen up your beer when you're on the course... I highly recommend this for any group that's going to the Trail to play golf and wants to stay together as opposed to getting 4 hotel rooms - WAY better!!!!
