About Catharina

Hi my name is Catharina. I am a 49 year old mother of 4 and happily married for 25 years. I started vacation renting about 9 years ago. I love the Hospitality field and especially enjoy meeting guests from all around the world.

Catharina purchased this house in 2011

Why Catharina chose North Carolina

This property is perfect for families. The layout allows for various sleeping arrangements. This is ideal for multi-generations such as parents with small children that prefer to have their children close while still having privacy could sleep in connecting rooms or the many cousins who want to stay in a large bedroom together or the nightowls who can hangout at the pub and watch movies on the 108sq ft screen all night without disdurbing grandma and grandpa.

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful home on Lake Norman.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some great meals. We enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lake. The pool was refreshingly cool and pretty. We have a large family and there were plenty of comfortable beds for everyone. Thanks for a fun week!

Excellent location for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location for our family of 8 adults and 8 children!

Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. Spent time in the pool, water skiing, tubing, paddle boarding and fishing. So much to do for all ages. Close to stores and restaurants. Definitely would recommend this location!!!

So Disappointed!!!

  • 2 of 5

We have rented several homes in Lake Norman the past several years. For the price the property is extremely over priced and extremely under maintained. The new shower in the basement (if it is new) is in very very poor shape. The floor is ready to collapse. The sheets, blankets, pillows, towels and wash cloths should all be renewed. The main floor some of the furniture is broken, they really only have table seating for 11 people. They left us with 2 dish cloths and 2 dish towels. After you cook for 16 people breakfast, lunch and dinner you have to do laundry. The garage I'm sure has not been cleaned in a long long time. The upstairs bedroom furniture was in poor condition. The outside landscaping has not been taken care of. The outside deck area needed TLC. Terribly over priced. There are much nicer places for a lot less money.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall we thought the house was great! Very well stocked kitchen - plenty of trash bags and papers towels! Every dish, glass etc. you could need. The only negatives were only one bath for the upstairs which can sleep 8 or more and a little frustrating that there was only one tv box for the family room and the master - so we had to watch the same program. The jet ski ramp created some problems - would be easier if there were just a place to tie off a couple jet skis. The owner is very prompt in getting back with you if you have any questions or concerns. Highly recommend this house!

Great for a group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with the owner and house. It has everything you need for a large group to cook, relax, and enjoy some time together. The owner was readily available by email and phone, and she communicated some issues with us right away. The game/theater room provided a great space for movies and play, and the kitchen was well equipped for our group of 17 to stay a week and still function for all meals. We visited in early March, so we did not use the pool or water but the yard is quiet and protected and we enjoyed the deck for coffee, meals, and kicking up our feet. The street/neighborhood is also quiet and good for walks/jogs. I would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the suggestions! We can put locks on the maintenance rooms for safety. We agree that the lake level bathroom shower is pretty small. We have decided to renovate this bathroom and will expand and increase the size of the shower. This renovation should be completed by May if not earlier. Ww hope to continue to provide the best vacation experience possible to all our vacationers.
