Very clean and quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay and the fenced in yard was great for my dog. Very well taken care of property and relaxing. The view was spectacular! We saw deer and a crane. The bed's are very comfortable. Upper level deck was amazing with great outdoor furniture. Would love to come back! Tonya K.

Comfortable home for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The home is conveniently located near a few boat ramps so getting our boat to the dock at the house was quick and easy. The house itself was very comfortable for our group of 7. The downstairs does get a bit cold, so bring a sweatshirt. Our teens enjoyed the pool table and hot tub, and my husband and I enjoyed that the master bedroom is upstairs and all the kids were downstairs. The home has a sunset view. I would definitely stay here again!

The house was adorable! The views were amazing! There's a wonderful covered deck with very comfortable furniture or we could watch the views during a few rainy afternoons. The great room is wide open to the kitchen with comfortable furnishings. The mattresses were all very comfortable. Great location convenient To the bridge.

Amazing location; amenities could be improved

  • 3 of 5

We booked a last minute weekend getaway and were extremely pleased with the view and location of this property. The backyard opens right up to the lake and a private dock and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking.

The home environment leaves a bit to be desired. The yard is really in need of some attention - leaves gathered and overwhelming corners, gates that stick, fencing that snagged and ripped clothing a few times. I would also caution older renters about the steepness of the backyard slope and slipperiness of the step stones - the combination made me anxious for my elderly father.

Inside, the main rooms are lovely, but downstairs bedrooms are quite cramped and dark. It would be nice if the bedrooms also had small televisions and more storage space for luggage, clothing, etc.

It took quite a bit of doing to connect to Wi-Fi. There are numerous sets of directions in the home book, on the fridge, etc., but I was not able to connect until I had located the router and restarted it.

When we arrived, the hot tub temperature was 84 degrees and it would not heat up. There was a note in the home book saying that the previous tenants had broken the display panel but that the tub was still working, but we found this was not the case. I called the phone number on the fridge indicated for hot tub issues and got a full voice mailbox. I called again the next morning and had the same result. I then called the rental office and to their credit, a repairman was there and fixed the problem in less than an hour.

The kitchen is stocked very well - I really appreciated the full spice cabinet! - with the exception of needing a pitcher.

We LOVED having the fenced-in backyard for our dogs to run. It was a good-sized space for them. We also really appreciated the thoughtful touch of having baby gates around to block off areas that they may be able to squeeze through. This is a great rental for pet owners.

Though overall we did have some issues, I do believe with a little attention given to these concerns, we would rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! We do appreciate your notes on the rooms, the owner is looking into TV's right now Actually the tub is now fixed... and we are sorry you had the issue the first night. ( When the panels break - it takes a week to obtain one). We also would like to thank you for brining our attention to those yard items. We will try and obtain a new yard man since it appears they cannot keep up right now Thank you again and we do hope you come back and stay with us . Just a note- this is not a steep yard at all, it is a gentle slope- our steep yards ( over 100 steps down ) do exist and are quite a walk not only down but up .So thank you again for mentioning the items. We look forward to serving you soon in the near future

Weekend Getaway

Great house on a quiet street with a gorgeous view. We had a perfect weekend and will look for Piccolo Nido de Lago next time we come to Smith Mountain Lake. And thanks to SML Rental Agency for great communication throughout the booking process.
