About owner/property manager

I grew up in Michigan on an inland lake where I developed my love for life on the water. I learned to swim at 1 year old, water skiing at 6 and started sailing solo at 7. The water has always been my best friend whether it is in the form of glass water or fluffy white powder. After I graduated from Michigan State University I moved to Huntington Beach, California where I started my career in Packaging Engineering. I lived in CA for 12 years and then moved with my company to Nebraska in 2004. I've lived here on the lake ever since and love the midwest life and people every day.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2009

Why owner/property manager chose Nebraska

I love this property because it is a great ski lake and has a slalom course. It is very laid back, fun and feels so far away from city life while only being a short drive to downtown Omaha. When I put work away for the day, I come home to paradise every day of the week. I feel very fortunate and love to share this experience with friends and guests.

What makes this house unique

A beach paradise in the middle of the the Midwest!!! What more can you ask for?!?!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kelly and her family were great guests and left the Beach House in great shape. I would gladly rent to them again!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We came to Omaha for the Olympic Swimming Trials. We wanted a vacation home on the water to stay in so we could enjoy hanging out as a family, instead of using hotel rooms. It worked out perfectly for us. It is about a 25 minute drive into the city. We commuted back and forth and enjoyed the quiet lake community. Brad has great neighbors and he was very hospitable and welcoming to us. He even hung an Olympic flag in his front yard in enthusiasm for our son being a qualifier! Brad responded quickly to questions and was available and helpful to us during our stay.

The house was well stocked and very clean. He loves indoor and outdoor plants and we didn't mind watering those for him during our week long stay, which he asked us to do. The third upstairs bedroom is accessed by a spiral metal staircase, which wasn't a problem for us because we put two teenage daughters up there, but it might be helpful to know depending on the ages of guests. The beds were very comfortable, which is important to me.

Overall, it was a great place and we would stay here again! Thanks, Brad, for your warm welcome!

Great location with a setup that was perfect for our family get together

  • 5 of 5

It was a bit of a last minute trip and Brad was very responsive in helping to accommodate us. My wife and I with our 2 kids (one 6 weeks old!) and 2 sets of grandparents all got together to have a relaxing weekend at the lake house. There was plenty of room in the house for us all when we were inside, although we spent the majority of the time on the back patio/ beach. Whilst we were only there for a short time we did get out for some food and I can highly recommend Stella's for its burgers.

When it comes to booking a home rather than a hotel one of the main things I look for is responsiveness and customer service. Brad really excelled on this. Both leading up to and during our stay no questions seemed too mundane (right down to where are the bags for the corn hole!). He was very quick and helpful in all responses.

I would definitely recommend this property to someone looking for a relaxing time away with family - I know its on my radar for our next trip up towards Omaha.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Brad was an awesome host and the property was exactly as it was described. It was a fantastic place to spend a few days with our 3 teenagers! A lot to do at the property and we visited some great local sites as well. Would highly recommend Brad's Beach House!

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Brad's BeachHouse!! It was optimal for a family with 3 teenagers. The house and accessories were exactly as advertised. The home was clean and relaxing and the kayaks were a huge hit with the kids. We played sand volleyball, grilled, swam, kayaked and relaxed. It was close to Omaha and Iowa so there was a lot to choose from for entertainment. We visited the zoo, a wildlife safari, a tractor museum, a space museum and downtown Omaha. All within driving distance. We also ate a a great local BBQ in Bellevue, NE. Brad was a superb host and the neighbors were awesome. We would definitely recommend this rental as it was a great experience!

Great house to spend a relaxing wknd with friends

  • 4 of 5

The house was great with an awesome outdoor set-up. The volleyball net and bags game were fun to play throughout the weekend. There were paddle boats and boards to hang out on. Some of the people in our group had luck fishing off the neighbor's dock, who was very friendly and welcoming. We rented the boat and did skiing and tubing one afternoon which was a blast. Brad droce the boat for 2 hours and was accommodating to our large group and gave ski tips as well. His little dog Milo was along for the whole ride. We loved the house, it was set-up perfectly for cooking and entertaining. The only negatives were that all the beds except for the master were twin sizes and the hot water had an foul odor to it. We hung out at the Country Bar and Catfish Lake restaurant during our stay and both places were great. I highly recommend both if you are looking for something to do outside the house. Thanks for a awesome weekend Brad!

Owner's Response: This response is to clarify the beds and the foul smell to the water. The beds/sizes are clearly depicted in the photos. We'd love to have the option of having all queen beds in the 2 guest rooms, but most of our guests prefer the twins overall so they can each have their own bed. The odor to the hot water is a slight sulfur smell due to high iron content in the water in this area. The iron reacts with the heating anodes in the water heater. A repair was made to the water softener July 20th and the hot water odor is substantially minimized. Use of a special iron reduction salt has also reduced the issue further. Tap drinking water at the sink uses a reverse triple osmosis system and chilled bottled water dispenser is supplied as well.

Our stay at Brad's Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Brad's Beach House for three days during the Berkshire Hathaway meeting. The place was immaculate and perfect for us. We had six adults who needed separate beds and we had plenty of room. The beach was wonderful and we had a chance to use the paddle boards and kayaks. Some of us had a chance to meet Brad and he couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay, especially with family.
