Our experiences at the Dawn Lake Lakefront home have been very positive. This was our second visit to this property. We ordinarily don't repeat visits to locations, as there is so much we haven't seen in our travels, but our first stay in 2013 was such a plus that we wanted to return. The first two visits were for one month each, but in 2015 we plan to stay for two months.
The website listing description was totally accurate. The property is adequately furnished, including furnishings for the patio and screened-in porch. The home is completely equipped, and was clean and well-maintained. A good amount of remodeling was done between our first and second stays, and this included interior painting (popcorn ceilings were removed) and all new carpeting.
The property owners only live a block away and a simple phone call or email was always enough to reach them if needed. They were very attentive.
If we couldn't recommend this property to friends or relatives, we wouldn't be writing this review. We have had friends and relatives visit during our two stays, and they were very impressed.
Because the property is in Sun City, visitors can purchase a monthly recreation pass to use at all of the seven (7) recreation centers. We have been involved in activities such as Bocce Ball, Mini Golf, Shuffleboard, Swimming and Aerobics. The property has a dock and visitors can fish the lake for channel catfish, sunfish, bass, tilapia and carp. On our recent visit, we caught a 12 pound carp a sunfish and several catfish (all caught and released). The property also has both a gas and charcoal grill, so outdoor cooking was fun. Fruit trees are plentiful on the property, including three varieties of oranges (including Clementines) and a lemon tree with very large fruit.
We are looking forward to our stay next year. We feel that it would be very difficult for one to find another place comparable to this property and location. It has been for us "A Slice of Paradise."
