BIG KAHUNA'S! LUXURY HOME WITH HYDROBIKE, KAYAK AND PEDAL BOAT

Hartwell Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Come and spoil yourself at Big Kahuna's -- a retreat created for the ultimate Lake Hartwell experience! This 5BR 3BA luxury home sits in a deep water cove and will offer you and your guests the perfect home base for your vacation at the lake. Located in an upscale lakefront neighborhood near the Reed Creek area of Hartwell, just a few minutes from downtown. By water, we are 10 minutes from Hartwell Marina, 10 minutes to the dam and about 20 minutes to the river channels, truly an A+ location on the lake. Several nearby ramps for easy access launching your boat.

Worried about the kids having not enough to do at the lake? Don't be -- our family-friendly rental includes the use of a tandem sit-on-top kayak, five person pedal boat and propellor-driven hydrobike, not to mention airhockey, ping-pong, foosball, X-Box system and lots of fun games. Two 15 speed bikes with off-road tires for exploring Wyndward Pointe Drive. Wonderfully landscaped yard with plenty of grass for the kids to play. Less than 15 minutes from Paynes Creek Multi-Purpose Lakeside Trails (miles of trails along the lake).

Bedding is as follows: Master (king); Guest BR #1 (queen); Guest BR #2 (queen); Guest BR #3 (two twins); Guest BR #5 (bunkroom featuring two twin over full beds - sleeps six kids). All bedrooms and living room (upstairs) and den (downstairs) have ceiling fans for your comfort.

The main level features a large great room with stacked stone fireplace (remote controlled). Living room has 46 inch high def LCD TV (with satellite and blu-ray DVD player), and is open to the gourmet kitchen and dining area.

Master bedroom is on the main level and has a king-sized four poster bed with luxury linens, LCD flat screen TV, spa-like bathroom with French doors, double sinks, deep tub, separate tiled shower and extra large walk-in closet. Light some candles and soak your cares away! Master also has private access to the covered porch...sneak out before everyone is up and enjoy the sunrise and lakeside view with your coffee!

Second bedroom bedroom on the main floor features a queen bed, super comfy mattress, luxury linens and en suite bathroom, as well as a large closet.

Large gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, all the cooking gadgets you could think of, complete service set for very large groups, and an abundance of counter space to allow everyone to get in on the action and assist the cook! EXTRA FULL SIZED FRIDGE IN THE GARAGE for easy access. Dining space is plentiful, with seating for eight at the circular dining table, overflow seating at the island breakfast bar and, if the need arises, even more dining space can be found on the covered porch, which features lake views, a soothing water fountain and it's own ceiling fan!

On the terrace level, we have three bedrooms, the family room/gaming area and a full bath. The first bedroom has two antique mahogany twin beds with very comfy mattresses. The second bedroom has lakeside views and is well appointed, with a queen sized bed covered in luxury bedding. There is a cozy reading chair positioned near the window for curling up with a good book, and an extra large closet for your things.

The kids Hawaiian-themed bunkroom is the third bedroom on this floor. The bunkroom can sleep six and features two twin over full beds, all covered delightfully in Pottery Barn surfer-inspired bedding. Walk-in closet, TV with DVD and X-Box, karaoke, and best of all -- a real long board and 'how to surf' books, so your kids can at least imagine what it would be like to catch a wave and hang ten like the Big Kahuna himself!

The family room on the terrace level features a 46 inch LCD flat screen TV, with satellite and blu-ray DVD player. Bookcases hold lots of games and books (some Hawaiian or surfer related (Surf's Up!, Monopoly Surfer Addition, Tiki Mountain, as well as all your favorites), to keep you entertained when you are not on the lake.

The gaming area is NHL-inspired (Go Penguins!) and features a deluxe air hockey table (with an awesome sound/scoring system) and a foosball table. A four person pub table covered in 1980's hockey player cards makes grabbing a snack or playing cards downstairs convenient (and entertaining if you are a hockey fan!).

Terrace level patio features table for four, fire bowl (great for smores) and two chaise lounge chairs for soaking in the lakeside view. Pathway to our dock starts right at the concrete patio -- follow it for about a minute down a shaded pathway to the dock, which is resting in one of the most pristine coves on Hartwell...yes, you can see your toes! Enjoy a nap in the lakeside hammock at nestled in the trees at the shoreline. Bring your boat(s), we have room in our double-slip dock with extra-large swim platform. Hang out all day on our colorful Adirondack chairs and watch the kids have the time of their lives! Our protected cove is just off the 'big water' of the lake. We are close to the dam, Hartwell Marina and the river channels, for exploring. This is the perfect lake location! Lots of large islands to boat to and explore! You will love this location!!!

We cannot wait to host your family or group get together at Lake Hartwell, and we know you will put Big Kahuna's on your short list for future getaways!

About The Owner

Come catch some air at Lake Hartwell!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Hartwell Lake

The peace and traquility found at the lake is hard to beat. The water clarity at Hartwell is amazing. Our location, near the 'big water' and the marina, can't be beat for convenience. Hart County is beautiful - pastoral, with fields of sunflowers and grazing cows in the pastures. The warm country breezes and the clear sparkling waters of the lake have a way of taking the stress level down to zero.

What makes this house unique

Close to town for shopping, close to the marina for gas, close to the big water of the dam for that 'wow' factor.

Thanksgiving Week 2013

  • 5 of 5
We had a great family & friend gathering for the entire holiday week. Our age range was 74 to 18 and everyone loved it. The kitchen is well equipped and perfectly laid out. The open design allows the cooks to be constantly part of the fun. The bedrooms are nicely organized. Plenty of towels. The deck areas are both great. Very quiet neighborhood. Loved the proximity to city of Hartwell and grocery. Owner was very responsive to additional questions in advance and while on-site had a TV ? and they called immediately. Very cool spot -- we'll be back!

Great house for 10 of us!

  • 5 of 5
Our children and grandchildren from Raleigh and Mobile, AL, joined us for 4 days over Thanksgiving. The house was perfect for grandchildren aged 2 through 13 with a great combination of sleeping arrangements. Beds were comfortable and house was very clean. The kitchen had just about everythink imaginable for Thanksgiving dinner, even a panini maker for leftover ham sandwiches.

The weather cooperated and we all had great fun on the hydro-bike, kayak and paddle boat. The older grandsons kept the ping pong table and foosball table heated up with tournaments.

All in all a wonderful house to gather with friends and family.

Tampa Bay meets North Georgia

  • 5 of 5
Great fun for everyone. The house was just as described and met our every expectation. The area is beautiful and the lake was cool and inviting on scorching days. Nice to just chill out for a while. Everyone had a good time from toddlers to teenagers. A couple of nice day-trips added to the lake fun. The family is already talking about next year. Thanks for the hospitality.

WE OFFER YOUR FAMILY USE OF THE ONLY HYDROBIKE ON LAKE HARTWELL!

FANTASTIC WAY TO EXERCISE AND ENJOY NATURE.

If you like water recreation, or cycling, you will love our Hydrobike. With little effort you can maintain a cruising speed of 4-6 miles per hour, and you can accelerate up to 10 mph. On Hydrobikes you're comfortably seated upright for great viewing as you cruise by canoes, kayaks and paddle boats!

FEATURES: Peace and quiet: Hydrobikes are engineered for silence. It won’t disturb wildlife habitats- or fishing holes. Strong, fast, and light: Hydrobikes pontoons were scientifically developed by a professional canoe designer for optimum buoyancy, speed, and maneuverability. That means you will have a smooth ride even in choppy water. Steady and sturdy: Stable enough to dive from, Hydrobikes can also handle rough water conditions, including five foot ocean swells (not that you'll have to worry about that in our coves!). Propeller-driven for the fastest performance!
