The house is located in a gated community where the houses are on canals that go out to the Colorado River. It is ideally located on the main canal that connects to the river. It is at a fork in the canals creating a large body of water in front of the house. This makes for easier maneuvering of boats. A very large patio and huge wrap around dock make for more enjoyable outdoor living. 5mph speed in the canals make for safe swimming at the house and safe mooring for vessels. The 120' dock is private and belongs to the house. There is 60' on one side and 40' on the other of usable space for mooring.

About Kathy Northcutt
I was born and raised in San Diego. We would go to the river near Yuma at Lake Martinez/ Fisher's Landing. We decided in 1990 that we wanted a house at the river but at that time you could only lease in that area. So we got in the car and started driving and trying to find a river house we could own. We found Moovalya Keys and fell in love. We put in an offer on a house that day. We spent all our free time there and our kids who were 2 and 4 grew up river rats. We proceeded to buy 2 more houses in Moovalya Keys. We loved the area and the people. We loved the area so much that when I got remarried in 2005 I had the wedding at this house. My daughter followed suit and had her wedding there in 2017. Although my kids are now grown and we don't make it out to the river as a family anymore. I still come out once a month to check on the houses (I also own Park Place #347964 which is right across the canal) and do maintenance and repairs. I have been a board member for the HOA since 2016 so I'm up to date on what is happening in the area. I have been managing my houses since not long after we started renting them. Although we have tried using the real estate companies I preferred to handle the property management myself so I would know what kind of people were renting my houses. I have had some really great people rent my houses over the years and the majority of the people that rent from me have rented before and many come every year.
Kathy Northcutt purchased this House in 1994
Why Kathy Northcutt chose Parker Strip
When we came out to the river all the time we stayed at Park Place #347964 which is right across the canal. We got to know the people that owned this house. They decided they wanted to buy a house on the river and we bought the house from them immediately. This house has the best location in Moovalya Keys.
What makes this House unique
This house has the best location in Moovalya Keys. Since it is on a peninsula you have water all around you when you're out on the patio. When you sit in the upper covered patio you can see down the main canal and get a breeze off of the water. The house is located where the main canal forks so you have a large body of water in front of the house. This makes maneuvering to the dock much easier and makes for quick and easy river access.

Great house, old school tropical vibe!
Overall great place to stay, very clean and lots of space to entertain and dock boats!
Great location and patio
This rental was great. All the amenities you need, plus an awesome patio for hanging out/Bbq-ing. Short drive to the parker strip as well. I would definitely rent here again.
gr8 views of river and other homes in Keys...clean & cozy...owner is wonderful...I recommend...wish
This is an 'it' property! The loca provides great views of the river and other homes in the Keys. The home was clean and cozy. The owner, Kathy, is wonderful to rent from, very responsive! I wanted to give this property 5 stars, but my wife said, "For the 5th it needed to have a washer & dryer. I wish this allowed me to rate this prop 4.5. I highly recommend renting from Kathy!
Best house, best location on the river
We have rented this house 6 times in 6 years. We have friends that rent other houses in the keys. They always end up spending their time at the Pointe House. The pictures don't do justice to both the inside and the outside. Kathy is very easy to deal with and is always upgrading both the inside and outside to make our, and your stay more enjoyable each year. We have had friends rent her other house just across the canal and they will say the same for that house. If you have an opportunity to rent either of Kathy's houses, you will want to be repeat visitors just like us.
What a great trip in a fabulous house. Our second time here and the interior and patio upgrades are fantastic- new shade, bbq and dock. Loved our stay and already made our reservations for next year!!!
By far the best house on the colorado river!!
The best thing about this house is the giant patio area. We had breakfast under the palapa every morning. Swam off the patio. beautiful lights at night. The house is plenty big with lots of couch space for the kids in one room and adults in other rooms. The owner Kathy, was very nice and real easy to work with. She has another house in the area too if this one is not available.
To sum it up, stay here. Its the best location and very very nice.
Thanks Kathy and we'll rent again soon.
Since the house is connected to the Colorado river, water sports are the order of the day. The Parker Strip is wide and deep with few sand bars to worry about. Since the house has easy access to the river you can go out for the day or just for an hour. There are also bars located along the shoreline. There is also the Blue Water casino at one end of the Parker strip or Buckskin state park at the other end. When the weather is cooler there is a very nice golf course near by. There are also a lot of off road trails to explore in the winter. There is also Lake Havasu about an hour away with the famous London Bridge.
