About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8




Since I've been doing off season remodeling and have had to turn away a few bookings, I'm ready to get some things on the books. Book for a week and pay $300 plus taxes, fees, and cleaning. Book for at least 3 nights and pay $70 a night plus taxes, fees, and cleaning. Reservation must begin by the end of April 2017.

New updates to be finished by mid February 2017, new tubs and tile surrounds in bathrooms, one bathroom is a tub sized walk in shower. They are also freshly painted and beadboard ceilings. Bedrooms have new paint and all the popcorn ceilings are gone. All electrical outlets and switches have been updated.

I've done a kitchen remodel Jan 2016. New countertops, backsplash, ceiling, lighting, over the stove microwave are all new, beadboard ceilings, and new recessed lighting.

Two bedrooms (split floor plan) with over 400 sq ft each and 2 queen beds each, (each bedroom with bathroom) living room/dining room, fully supplied kitchen, and a 3rd full bathroom. Furnishings are all new. Gas fireplace in the living room added November 2015. Bathrooms have new vanities and wainscot.

Get a great rate if you can stay during the week when you can enjoy less crowds.

I will consider one night stays on a case by case basis, but it wouldn't be a great value to do so since it is the cost of the night plus $40 cleaning fee, plus 15% tax, plus the vrbo fee which is probably another $10-$12 dollars. So depending on whether the night is during the week or on the weekend, the cost would be approximately $130-$160.

This home is in the Villas area of Fairfield Bay, just 3 blocks from the conference center, near many of the area amenities, and a short 5 minute drive to the marina. The Villas are in a very quiet neighborhood, stand alone houses, so no noise from connecting neighbors like the condos in the area. Lots of trees, and most things are walkable.

Come to this beautiful area and enjoy not just one of the top 10 cleanest lakes in the country, but the many amenities. There is bowling, fitness center, swimming pools, golf courses, putt putt, volleyball, basketball, tennis courts, walking trails, Frisbee golf, and restaurants all surrounded by mature trees, mountains, and the beautiful Greers Ferry Lake. The marina is a 5-10 drive from the house. All types of boats are available for rent there from jet skis to pontoons.

There are a number of trails in Fairfield Bay that offer hikes from short and leisurely to longer and more challenging. Indian Rock Cave Trail 3/4 miles, Indian Falls Trail, 8/10 mile of rock formations and waterfalls. Woodland Mead trail to Ed leamon Park trail to Ed Leamon Garden trail are about 1/4 legs. Lakewood trail is 5 miles, and Mt Ranch trail is a 5 mile bike or hike trail.

There are a handful of restaurants on the property and a grocery store and Dollar General just outside the main entrance to the Bay.

Fairfield Bay also offers more than 50 community organizations, ranging from golf and boating groups, artist’s league, civic organizations, hiking clubs, and Master Gardeners! In Fairfield Bay, everyone can get involved!

The Bay is also conveniently located, with Conway (60 minutes) and LIttle Rock (90 minutes) in our back yard, the attributes of the big cities are handy, while enjoying the high quality lifestyle the Bay is known for.

Fairfield Bay is also host to several great seasonal festivals! These family friendly celebrations are sure to please everyone no matter the time of year! So come and enjoy these community events throughout the year such as: Bloomin’ in the Bay, Surf the Bay, 4th of July parade & fireworks, and StoryFest at the Bay just to name a few. Be sure to visit for more information on all of our upcoming events!

Snow birds, if you aren't going to Florida or Texas, consider this for a winter rental. Contact me for winter long term rates.

Please note the cancellation policy before you book any property on VRBO so you will know whether you can get a refund should you have to cancel. Also the fees VRBO charges for processing are never refunded. Minimum age 21.

About Cathy Crosslin

This is my personal retreat home, and where I will likely live permanently in a few years. I am currently adding updates to make this more of what I will want long term, and not just a rental property. Some updates done, more to come over the next year.

Cathy Crosslin purchased this villa in 2015

Why Cathy Crosslin chose Greers Ferry Lake

Great deals can be had in Fairfield Bay. I chose this house because of it's central location. Right around the corner from the conference center, walking distance to the gym, to a daily lunch at the senior center open to anyone, walking distance to a trail, putt putt and courts, and a longer walk to the pool.

Loved It !!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is really nice. All the new updates are great and it was very clean. Perfect location for us. We will want to stay here again. The guest pass also gave us 10% off our meal and The Little Red. Thanks for all your hard work on this place.

Wonderful, comfortable get-away

  • 5 of 5

We SO enjoyed our getaway to Fairfield Bay. The Villa was warm, and homey and felt like visiting a friend or relative's home. Everything we needed was right there. Comfortable beds, extra blankets, well stocked kitchen, even some board games for the kids. We had a blast bowling, playing putt-putt, and enjoying beautiful Greers Ferry Lake. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you all enjoyed your time there. Thanks for taking care of the villa so well. I'm glad you got to take advantage of some of the things Fairfield Bay has to offer. Hopefully you got down to the Marina for some of the weekend celebrations as well. Hopefully you get back next season. More improvements coming with updates in the bathrooms, painting, and getting rid of those popcorn ceilings this off season. Never hesitate to tell me of any improvements or additions you think would make it better. Blessings

Clean, comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, comfortable, well stocked and even seemed bigger than we expected from the pictures online! Owner was very nice and easy to work with. Be aware that the a/c is provided by window units. They cooled adequately for us on very hot summer days so no problem for us.

Owner's Response: Thanks Phillip for the nice review and for choosing to stay at my condo over all the other choices at Fairfield Bay. The place isn't perfect, but I'm trying to make it as comfortable as possible, and in the off season I will continue to make it even better. Bathrooms will be on the improvement list this off season. Yes, wall units, but all in good shape, one brand new. I'll also being adding more insulation, so those units should keep everyone even more comfortable. Thanks, as well, for leaving the place in GREAT shape. I was up there today to do the cleaning myself and meet with the insulation guy and pest control, and saw how great you guys took care of it. Every owner hopes for guests who will treat it like home so that it is nice for the next guests. Blessings Cathy

Owner's Response: Thanks Joyce for the review. I try hard to make sure the place stays clean and comfortable, and to provide the essentials for families who stay. I'm glad you got to make memories with your grandsons fishing. Those will be the times they will always remember. Blessings to you all....Cathy

Nice, clean, quiet and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in this property. We found it to be clean, well equipped, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The area was nice and quiet and served our needs perfectly. We enjoyed it very much.

Minor Complaints: 1) The website where we found this property advertised it at $61 per night yet the rate when actually booking the reservation was close to $90 per night. This "bait and switch" tactic is not good for business and gave us the impression that the rest of the information on the site was less than truthful. 2) The unit has window air-conditioners. They were all noisy and we had to turn them off at night to sleep. I noticed that the filters on these window units had not been replaced or cleaned and were almost totally clogged up, which makes the unit work harder to cool the room and costs the owner money. 3) Finally, whoever is cleaning the condo for the owner is using a product on the tile floors (which are tile through-out the unit) that leaves the floors sticky and slick. I would recommend to the owner that the floors be thoroughly cleaned, by hand, with an ammonia or other non-soapy solution. When this floor, in its current condition, gets wet, it is slippery and dangerous to walk on.

Other than that... I consider this unit to be a very nice place to stay and a good value.

Owner's Response: I know we talked about that figure that vrbo shows on the front page of properties as not being what I charge and that I've not been able to determine how they come up with the amount. It is the same with every property I looked at. But the rate portion of the listing does show the actual cost. I just was told today by my housekeeper that the front ac wasn't cooling well. Those are the types of things I do want to hear from guests so I know when something needs repaired. Thanks for the review. I'm always trying to make improvements, big and small.
