Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Arnolds Park - West Okoboji Home For Rent!

5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10-15

This beautiful remodeled West Okoboji home is perfect for a family vacation or just a fun weekend getaway! You can enjoy views of beautiful West Lake Okoboji from every room of the house or enjoy them on the very large patio and deck! The house is located on Smiths bay of West Lake Okoboji and offers amazing sunset and sunrise views!! You are only steps away from the famous Arnolds Park Amusement park, the Central Emporium and all of the shopping and restaurant's the lakes area has to offer. From your private patio and deck you can watch the fireworks shooting over the lake or sip on a cocktail as the boaters, skiers and water boarders go by. Outside, you have a private dock and stairs that lead into a private swimming area. Sit in the sun, fish, or just hang out on the dock! This home was built with family in mind and can sleep up to 15 comfortably. The house is great for family vacations, reunions, or events! The upstairs of the house has great lake views and 5 newly remodeled bedrooms and a brand new bathroom with dual vanity sinks! The living room or finished basement are perfect for games, movies or a round of cards. The main floor has a brand new kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and stainless steal sink. The kitchen has a large center island for the family to gather around and the kitchen and dining room are an open concept layout. So the cook can view the lake and not have to worry about missing out on the fun and entertainment while they cook! There is also a fully furnished and finished basement with a bonus room and tv/game room for the kids!

The front yard also has a fire pit to sit around and tell stories or enjoy some smores! The property also has a gas grill for cookouts.

Nearby boat ramp for putting your boat in and out of the water or marina for boat rentals, jet skis or sailboats. Restaurants, amusement park, water park and public beaches are all close by.

This property is not on the canal or harbor but located directly on west okoboji.

**Note** The dock is usually put in the end of May and taken out mid October. If renting be aware of these dates if having a dock is important.

Why Shawn Syndergaard chose Iowa

I purchased this property with family vacations in mind! I grew up around the lakes area my entire life and I wanted our two little boys to have the same amazing lake experiences as I did growing up. The property has been in my family for 40 years. The home is being completely remodeled and everything is brand new! From the floors to ceiling everything has been completely re-done. I will upload the new photos here in a month of two when the job is fully completed.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location!! This home is located directly on the lake. This home is located next to fillenworth beach and the central emporium. You are only two blocks away from all the fun, restaurants and night life!! And you are only four blocks away from the amusement park!! I honestly don't think you can get a better location. You have amazing panoramic sunset views! You can sit and watch the fireworks from the comfort of your own private patios and dock!

Prime Location, large open and clean home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and had plenty of room for our group of 10 to spread out even. Very nicely remodeled house and great location. Owners are very responsive. I wish there had been fluffier pillows on the beds, lamps by bedside for reading at night, and maybe some mini soaps in the bathroom shower (I forgot my own). Those are small details and we had a wonderful time.

Vacation Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our beautiful week on Lake Okoboji. We had 12 family members present and never felt crowded in this newly remodeled lake home. What a nice surprise to find everything we'd need for our vacation kitchen!

The bedrooms were very comfortable, lots of table spaces for our meals, new TVs to watch the Olympics, a nice dock for the boat, and

heavensent sunsets! We loved it!

Great home- fantastic views!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this great home!

Beautiful views of Lake Okoboji- private dock, and plenty of outdoor seating and a fun fire pit for making s'mores. The home is within walking distance of many local attractions.

The interior is nicely updated and has plenty of living and sleeping room. Great parking in front for lots of vehicles. Minutes from a boat ramp. We felt right at home.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week and our family came from 4 different states. It was the perfect house. If the babies were sleeping, the rest of us still played out in the water on one of the many blow-up floaties we brought along. The house is beautiful and had absolutely everything we needed. Shawn is also great to work with. I would go back in a heart beat!!!

The house is located only four blocks away from the Arnolds Park Amusement park. Walk down for a nutty bar and take a ride on the roller coaster! Also ride the go carts or play some mini golf! The house is only two blocks away from the central emporium which has tons of good local clothing shops and boutiques. You can also dine or have some drinks at any of the nearby restaurants or bars that are all within a few blocks walk!
