About the property

Modern, newly built for your comfort and enjoyment. Quiet, Private, and Safe!

Looking for privacy, tranquility, and natural beauty for your next vacation getaway? Look no further! La Cabaña is a new, king studio walk-out apartment on the lower level of our private home located in the golfing (9 courses), fishing (11 lakes), and outdoor paradise (26 miles of hiking/walking trails) of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, the largest, private gated community in North America, 26,000 acres in size. We live on the upper level of our home and are available to insure you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Only residents or guests of residents are allowed entry into Hot Springs Village - the paparazzi will never find you here!!

La Cabaña overlooks the par 4, 5th Fairway of Ponce de Leon golf course with a view from tee to green, and is the perfect quiet and peaceful vacation accommodation for a couple or a single. When you arrive at La Cabaña, you will find it spotlessly clean and dust free. Linens and towels will be freshly washed, including the bed blanket. Smoking is not allowed inside or on the property. We are fanatical about the cleanliness of La Cabaña and we personally inspect La Cabaña before each guest arrival to meet highest standards of the best hotels. Even though La Cabaña is non-shedding small dog friendly, you will never know a dog has ever stayed there.

When you arrive you will find a dedicated, paved parking place and a paved, lighted walkway past natural forest to the private entrance of La Cabaña. Upon booking you will be given your 4 digit key code for the keyless entrance - never worry about locking yourself out or losing the key! The double French entrance doors give a view out to the private patio and the woods beyond. The bird feeders on the edge of the woods provide hours of entertainment for bird lovers. Blinds between the glass ensure privacy inside when needed. On the patio outside the French door entrance to La Cabaña you will find chairs, a table for two, a charcoal grill, a wood firepit, and a beautiful, elevated view of the forest on one side and tee to green view of Ponce de Leon golf course #5 Par 4. The best part is that from your private patio there are no other houses in sight, and the cart path is down the hill, on the other side of the fairway. La Cabaña is centrally located to all nine Hot Springs Village golf courses and amenities, including being only 2 miles from beautiful Lake Balboa Beach and Marina. Included are beach chairs for your use if requested. The historic Spa City of Hot Springs, Oaklawn Racing and Gaming, and Hot Springs National Park are only a 20 minute drive from La Cabaña. If you are a tennis player (we are), Hot Springs Village has the USPTA Coronado Tennis Center with 12 clay courts and 3 hard surface courts. For pickleball players, there are 8 nicely maintained courts with an active pickleball club that welcomes newcomers.


The features of La Cabaña include a fully equipped kitchenette with granite countertop, small appliances, microwave, coffee maker, apartment size refrigerator/freezer, dedicated, remote controlled AC and heat, electric fireplace, flat screen HD smart TV, full en suite bathroom with comfort height toilet, and a luxury king bed. Plush, clean, terry bathrobes will be waiting in the wardrobe. For the safety of our guests, La Cabaña has a smoke detector, a fire extinguisher, and a carbon monoxide detector in the unit.

Free WiFi, U-verse, and Netflix!! The 32" Samsung HD Smart TV is on an arm for viewing from the comfortable power recliners, or from the premium Sealy Posturpedic king bed. Outside the covered entrance door you will find a private, lighted patio surrounded by azaleas, with bistro table, patio chairs, fire pit, bird feeders, and charcoal BBQ grill.

We offer complimentary bicycles for your use. Nearby Lake Ouachita is the largest and cleanest lake in Arkansas and famous for trophy stripers. Bring your fishing gear (or borrow ours) and your golf clubs! Bicyclists and hikers will enjoy the beautiful network of trails in the Village and all of Arkansas.

The bathroom is large, however, the shower is not large. If you are a very large person, La Cabaña may not be right for you.

La Cabaña is "well behaved", under 30lbs, non-shedding, dog friendly. Limit 1! If you would like to bring your small dog on your stay, you must read and sign our pet policy agreement, and pay the pet fee in advance as part of your rental payment. The pet fee is $30 for a single small dog. Doggie guests must be fully house trained and quiet. The pet policy requires that all dogs be crated in La Cabaña when left alone. If you do not travel with a kennel cage, we will provide one. Again, only non-shedding dog breeds please! We love dogs and have a miniature Schnauzer named Bandit.

All guests must be minimum 21 years of age. If you are a first time guest of La Cabaña we ask that you plan to arrive before 10 PM if possible. We like to greet our new guests and show them into La Cabaña to make sure that you are comfortable and have everything you need.

If you would like some groceries and/or beverage items to be in La Cabaña ready for your arrival after a long day on the road or in the air, we offer this service for no charge other than the cost of the items. We will leave a receipt for you in La Cabaña. Just let us know a couple of days in advance of your arrival. Coffee, tea, and basic condiments will always be in La Cabaña for your arrival.

Driving times from La Cabaña: Lake Balboa Beach, Marina, and restaurant - 3 minutes; Ponce de Leon and Magellan golf courses and restaurants - 5 minutes; Grenada and Isabella golf courses and restaurants - 10 minutes; Cortez, Balboa, Coronado, Desoto Golf courses and restaurants - 15 minutes; Coronado Fitness Center, Natatorium, and Tennis Center - 15 minutes; Hot Springs Village pickleball courts - 20 minutes; Historic Downtown Hot Springs, Bath House Row, Hot Springs National Park, Oaklawn Racing and Gaming - 20 minutes; Lake Ouachita - 40 minutes.

About Susan McKenzie

Hi! We are Susan McKenzie and Jack Makemson and we moved permanently to Hot Springs Village from Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 2015, after building our home here in 2010. We've been married for 17 years and love living in the Village. Jack is retired, a native south Floridian, and Susan works in the aviation industry and is originally from the Bahamas. Our favorite pastime is tennis and hiking in the beautiful natural areas of Arkansas. We also enjoy our classic car club and own a 1966 Chevy El Camino and a 1995 Jaguar XJS convertible.

Why Susan McKenzie chose Hot Springs Village

We purchased property here to build our new home because Hot Springs Village is truly unique. It is the largest gated community in the United States and has something for everyone. Much of the Village's 26,000 acres remain wooded and natural. Every kind of sport and activity can be found here, fishing and boating on our 11 lakes, swimming and sunning on Balboa beach, golf on our 9 courses, tennis at our 13 court tennis center, pickleball at our 8 court center, or hiking on our 26 mile trail system . We love the 4 season climate and the natural beauty of the state of Arkansas.

What makes this studio unique

While we were in the process of planning and building our home, we came here often to stay at rentals. There were not many smaller apartments, suitable for just a couple, available for short term rental. So, we decided to build out our downstairs to exactly the type of place that we would have liked to stay - modern and clean, private entrance, no carpeting, a comfortable king size bed, a flat screen TV that can be viewed from the bed or the sitting area, cooking capability for small meals, full size refrigerator, large tiled bathroom, and a private patio with a grill and a great view. Since opening La Cabaña in June of 2015, it has been popular beyond our wildest dreams. We have made many new friends, some of whom have now bought homes here. If you are a golfer, La Cabaña is a 5 minute drive from the Ponce de Leon or Magellan clubhouses, 10 minutes from Grenada or Isabella, and less than 15 minutes from Desoto, Balboa, Coronado, or Cortez. We are less than a 5 minute drive from Lake Balboa beach and Marina, or a 20 minute walk there on a nature trail. And, the historic city of Hot Springs, and Hot Springs National Park is only 20 minutes away from La Cabaña. We live above on the main floor, we are considerate and quiet, and are always available to respond to your needs or questions while you are our guests in La Cabaña.

They have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The king bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is spacious and the kitchenette has all the amenities you need. WiFi is great. The outdoor patio is a great place to relax and take in the beautiful golf course, woods and wildlife. We hope to come back soon!
