Beautiful home, lovely lake, accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 plus two babies thoroughly enjoyed our time at 'Neptune'. The house fit our entire group very comfortably, with beds and bathrooms for all. We loved grilling each night in the outdoor cooking area and spending the days on the lake admiring the beautiful homes lining Panorama. Kitchen had almost anything any guest would need. Nice area for walking and close to one of Panorama's three beach areas. Would highly recommend this rental!

This house is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stay at the Neptune house in July. It is a beautiful house and was very clean. It has a very nice deck and outdoor cooking area that we used a lot. It worked very well for us since we had children there. There are more steps than I thought there would be from the house to the water so we did get our exercise! Overall we really enjoyed a peaceful stay at the Neptune!

It was perfect. Had everything we needed. Amazing house on a perfect Lake. The owners got a boat for us. My wife and I are both trial lawyers so we stayed at the property to make a trip to Des Moines for depositions a bit if a vacation w our newborn and our 20 month old. Everybody had a great time.

We normally do NOT write a review on our favorite homes as it make if difficult to secure. That being said....WOW. Neptune is such a great retreat. You will not be disappointed. Steve is there for your every need! The home is beyond expectations. I cannot say enough about the over all hospitality and warmth that comes with the stay. We enjoy the winter for the peace and quiet of the "country side" of the lake. Love this home!!!

Perfect Family Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

The Neptune was the perfect place for our family Christmas vacation! Our family came from all over the country to celebrate together! From little babies to Great Great Grandma and all ages in between it was a wonderful! The 3rd floor was perfect for the young families to sleep and to play together! The main floor worked great for my Mom as everything was on one floor for her! The Christmas tree and decorations were perfect! Thank you for your attention to the details! The kitchen worked great for all of us cooking and cleaning and enjoying good food and good times. Pool and ping pong and the availability of games were fantastic! We were even able to grill outside in December in Iowa!! Steve was fantastic to work with, quick to respond and answer questions! We enjoyed every aspect of staying at this property and would definitely visit again, especially with a large group! The layout worked really well for being together, but having enough room to enjoy some peace and quiet. The decor is perfect for feeling relaxed, but with a feel of luxury. As an artist, the artwork on display at The Neptune was quite impressive and very much enjoyed. We would highly recommend this property both in the winter and the summer! We are actually hoping to rent another one of Steve's properties for a summer getaway for just our family! I told Steve the beautiful surprise snowfall was a nice touch on his part! ;)
