And don’t forget about the step down bar - with its own mini fridge and Margaritaville blender, you can mix up your own special cocktails to keep the evening going!

If the sun is still calling, head outside to our decadent outdoor living space. Lounge by the pool for some much needed sunbathing and then take a dip to cool off, and don’t forget about the lake - the docks connected to our outdoor living space! When the sun finally sets, enjoy a fireside drink with friends and family or relax yourself in the outdoor spa; the perfect way to end your day.

3rd visit - 1st Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd consecutive November vacation to Mike's excellent lakeside house . . . says it all really doesn't it !

This time there were 6 of us - all adults - sharing our first family getaway for many-a-year, and not once did we feel there was not enough space. All the facilities were, as usual, in top condition, and Reynaldo came round to make sure that the pool was prefectly clean. The BBQ got quite a lot of use, and evening meals around the firepit were frequent.

The neighbours were friendly, and a 17lb catfish also made an appearance (beginners luck Dad lol)

We have already rebooked for the same time in 2018 !

Many thanks Mike :-)

Gorgeous Spot!

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect size and very clean! Mike was so accommodating and friendly. We had a few issues with the spa, but contacted Reynoldo (pool maintenance) who was there within 45mins to fix it. Enjoyed a lovely girls weekend and we would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Stayed here with friends over the Fourth. This place is awesome!! So clean and spacious. The pool is perfect and the lake adds such a fun touch. Beds are comfortable and Mike was so accommodating and nice. We even left a tablet there on accident and he shipped it that day! We definitely can't wait to go back!

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. The house was well equipment, clean and maintained. The backyard pool and views are amazing! We spent a lot of time in the pool and enjoying the views from the backyard. We choose to have the pool heated during our stay, which was a good idea considering the evenings still cooled off a bit. Mike, the owner, is a great guy to work with. Very happy with this VRBO!
