About vito or lucia

We are a busy family that enjoys water sports, dog sports and travel.

vito or lucia purchased this house in 2010

Why vito or lucia chose Clear Lake

We love the lake and have been coming for 10 years. When this house came on the market, we grabbed it.

What makes this house unique

Boat dock, swimmable and clear channel and a quick 3 minutes to open water; water fowl.

Being on the channel means it is nestled into lots of avarian wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here for 8 enjoyable nights for work/holiday. This house was such a great find and deal as it was priced the same as a local hotel (and was the lowest priced home on VRBO) with so much more to offer. It was impeccably clean, well layed out and furnished and would be perfect for 6+ people. I only used the master bedroom and the bed was very comfortable.

Instead of watching cable, I enjoyed watching all the wildlife move about especially in the early morning and evening. I was glad the living room didn't have blinds limiting the incredible wildlife viewing (i am a bird nerd").

The patio over looking the channel Is great for morning coffee and evening wine.

I rented a boat one day and tied it to the dock- seemed perfectly functional (but older as the ad states).

The owners have put a lot of effort into this house and it shows. The value for the money can't be overstated enough.

I've already booked 10 more nights in September when I return for work.

Nice clean quiet home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, brown dog and myself stayed here for the New Years. We wanted a nice quiet place to relax, read and enjoy the lake. This house was perfect and I'd love to come back during the summer, sounds like this is quite the place for some fishing :) Also love Love Love the fact that there is no cable or WiFi!!!

Lucia was super responsive and easy to work with!

Thank You!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. With the world so filled with technology, social media and all its bombardments, I too enjoy disconnecting and just sitting on the patio or deck while listening to birds out in and over the channel. In the winter, I love sitting inside in front of the fire. The summer has a different vibe with fishing, boating and long warm days. You'll enjoy fishing directly from the dock!

Great stay. We will be back.

  • 5 of 5

My five year old son and I had a boys only weekend. We were going to go camping but the rain was too much so we decided to rent this great home on the water. It started with great communication with Lucia, she answered any and all questions right away. Booking was easy. We had a two and a half hour drive to lake port and once we got to the house we felt like we were home. Warm and inviting and super clean We had a blast fishing off the dock in the back and running around with our dog on the back lawn. Plenty of movies to keep us entertained when the rain was too hard. Everything you needed. No wifi or cable but that was great.at first I didn't know what to think of it but my son and I spent so much time together without being connected that I think it was great not having those. Best boys weekend ever! My son Kept asking me when we are going to go back when we left. Overall, amazing place. Thank you for letting us stay at your home Lucia!

Clean, comfortable and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family trip to Clearlake! When requesting the reservation I received a prompt response and was able to confirm and finalize our trip quickly and easily. We were very pleased with the house and happy to be able to have our dog with us on this trip!

The dock worked very well for our boat and for fishing. Our kids were thrilled to catch Bass right off the dock and we had very successful fishing right outside of the channel from our boat. The back yard was a nice place to relax, the patio furniture comfortable and in the shade parts of the day. The kitchen was great! And the beds were comfortable. I have already sent the link for this property to a friend and highly recommend it. We look forward to booking it again in the future!

Owner's Response: Wowza! I may change my ad to read "fishin' hole". I've received several reviews this year about big fish being caught off the dock. Who would have known! I'm happy you enjoyed it. check back next year as I'm replacing the dishwasher, painting the back, re-doing the dock and replacing the front lawn with drought tolerant plants. I do my best to make sure it is functional and comfortable while keeping my rates low. I appreciate your stay. Thank you for being so tidy- the cleaning lady gave you 5/5 stars :)

Quiet Location on a Channel of the Lake--Easy to Boat In/Out Of

  • 4 of 5

The property is located in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end street. Plenty of wild life all around and very peaceful. The house itself has what you need and is clean, uncluttered and well taken care of. It could use new frying pans as most of them were scratched up and some kitchen reorganizing (though I am a stickler for that type of thing--you just need to look through everything and you will find it).

There is a swamp cooler, ceiling fans, and numerous stand-alone fans, but I would warn when the weather is in the upper 90s-- it is not sufficient to keep the house cool even if you keep it closed up during the day. So, unfortunately the fans are necessary but when running all of them it was too loud and the house still didn't cool down each day until 10:30 or 11:00 p.m. I realize we happened to be there during a heat wave of 104 degree weather, so I would advise if you can't take the heat, you will want a place with air conditioning.

The channel behind the house had a boat dock and a deck overlooking the channel. As stated in the description, it is definitely showing its age. The boat dock itself worked out well for us without any issues. I would have enjoyed using the outdoor deck had the furniture been more pleasing and if there were clean cushions for the lounge chairs. It could be such a gem! From the channel, it took a few minutes to reach the main body of the lake--very convenient. There is a gas dock at the Konocti Casino--very short boat ride from the house and easy to find. The lake itself was like "glass" for our entire stay and we enjoyed boating the entire time.

The house is close to downtown Lakeport, grocery stores, and restaurants--easy car ride. We went to a Mexican restaurant called TNT. The food was average--not bad--but not great--and not a good value. I would not recommend this restaurant for dinner but possibly happy hour with simple appetizers. There is also a drive in theater close by. Clean and well run. It was a lot of fun to load up the kids and watch a double feature for a mere $25 per vehicle. A real bargain!!

I would recommend this house for a smaller family of 5 - 6. Larger families of 7 - 8 would not have privacy and the room needed to spread out.

With unpredictable weather, I would rent during summertime ONLY if an air conditioner was installed. It would be nice to get rid of the noisy fans and hassle of moving them all around. I would rate the property 3.75 stars --Needs a bit more TLC for 4 stars.

Owner's Response: It is always so disappointing to rent to a guest that doesn't heed my many written warnings (I think you and I had 10 emails back and forth) about the lack of AC, wifi, cable and the age of the dock. It's even more disappointing to find out they broke the terms of the rental by having others stay at the property when my ad, agreement and our communication stated that they may not. If anyone needs a place with those amenities and an open rental agreement allowing any number of people on the property unknown to the owner, then this is not for them. Luckily, most people are highly satisfied with my property and understand only those on the reservation can stay there. it's a great house with 3 bedrooms/2 baths, sleeps 6 in beds (plus 2 rollaways), and 1400 sq feet. It's located on the water, clean with newly updated and well cared for furnishings- oh and it's just $110 a night for 4 people- the cheapest location on the lake.

Nice house, great for skiing and fishing

  • 5 of 5

The pictures represent the house well, it is a nice rancher with a pleasant back yard and a functional dock for the ski boat we rented from Disneys in downtown Lakeport. It was very fun to roll out of bed, have some breakfast and jump right on the boat. Most dinners we boated to the public piers in Lakeport and walked to a restaurant. The channel was weed free, and easy to turn around in. My son caught a couple of 14" bass right off of the dock in the back yard. My 3 teenagers and I had a great 5 day visit.

Owner's Response: So glad your weekend went well. I'm glad to see you rented a boat and that you were out on the water. It sure is a great way to beat the summer heat. This is a great year for the lake as we had lots of winter/spring rain and the levels are back to normal. The homeowner's association just had the channel cleaned which should last throughout the summer. I've never used my boat to go to the local restaurants......what a great idea. I'll try it next week.
