About Karin Cizek

The owners Robert and Mike (Shiny Bucket) met in college and became good friends. Robert moved back to Miami and Mike to Atlanta where they were born. Fast forward several years and each getting married and having children, Robert moved to Atlanta for his job. Looking for a place they can enjoy with their famlies together as well as an investment they purchased this beautiful home on Lake Lanier. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do with our families!

Karin Cizek purchased this house in 2004

Why Karin Cizek chose Gainesville

Very close to our Alpharetta home for easy access as well as in a very quiet cove and only a few miles from all the amenities one could every want.

What makes this house unique

Stress relief, peaceful unwind with great water activities for the whole family.

Love this house!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were at this house for a weekend with other family members. We loved everything about the home but especially the deck overlooking the lake. It's a very peaceful setting. The kitchen is well laid out and furnished with everything we needed. The bedrooms are large and clean as are the bathrooms. We hope to return very soon, but next time we'll stay a week.

Spacious and accommodating lake house with dock, yard, and deck.

  • 5 of 5

Our family just needed a weekend by the water to get away from the regular routine and we were extremely suprised how much this lake house had to offer. Plenty of entertainment space, back yard that rolls right to the water. I would definitely rent again. Maybe for a week in summer. Overall extremely pleased and satisfied with the property.

PERFECT lake house getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our Family recently stayed in the most perfect lake house for a reunion. There were 5 of us and the lake house could not have been more perfect for all ages for each of us to relax and spend our time. The gourmet kitchen was complete with Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and completely stocked with everything we could possibly need, just as the owners had stated. We really enjoyed the 2 spacious master suites complete with full bathrooms and private patios. This home was very clean and fresh with updated, comfortable furnishings and a charming décor throughout. A beautiful large deck outside was perfect for our BBQs and the views of the lake were spectacular. We also enjoyed the large yard, as we were able to keep an eye on our children as they played outside. The location of this property was so perfect for us, as there are quaint towns near by for shopping and exploring the area, yet we felt very secluded and relaxed in the private setting on the lake. I highly recommend this property for all types of vacationers as it truly offers something for all ages, and the owners could not have been more accommodating. We look forward to going back next year!!

Helping people make an informed decision

  • 2 of 5

Below is a copy of an e-mail I sent the owners after our stay. Owners did reply with that they would look into it and would replace their current cleaning company.

Honestly I do not think they have one. The issues mentioned below are not a lack of detail but rather many months of neglect.

The owners were nice, refunded our deposit, but did not make or offer any concessions/compensation .

I did get the garage door opened. Thanks

We had a nice time hanging out and catching up with friends at your vacation home in Gainesville, GA. Vrbo.com/25811

There were a few things I would like to bring to your attention.

I am not sure who does your cleaning, but wanted to bring this to your attention in hope that changes can be made for future guests.

It felt like we were staying in an old dirty, musty house especially downstairs. Had this been a hotel we would have checked out. Seeing this was not an option and that we had traveled 5-6 hours to fellowship and catch up with friends who also traveled a long distance we had a nice time.

All three beds appeared to be made, but had dirty sheets. It appeared the blankets were just pulled over the sheets

In both bathrooms there was a damp, dirty towel hanging on the back of the door.

In the upstairs bathroom with the queen bed, the “cleaned” and folded towels were stained and appeared dirty with makeup on the towel.

Broken glass in garbage disposal, and on counter behind decorative jars

Broken glass on floor in basement master behind and under chair next to fireplace

Glasses in cupboard were sticky and grimy

Floors were sandy and gritty

Cobwebs and live spiders were prevalent throughout the entire house, in corners, furniture, fireplaces everywhere possible.

Downstairs electric heat baseboards were very filthy/dusty along with the note on the thermostat we were afraid to turn on for possible fire

Downstairs master shower had mildew/mold on the ceiling

Downstairs toilet seat is coming loose

Verizon tech support called Friday morning and was not able to get the internet to work.

We were able to find clean sheets/pillow cases in laundry room cupboard. For reference the sheets/pillow cases in laundry cupboards are not folded but rolled up and stuffed in. It looked very sloppy and disorganized.

I will leave the matter of compensation to your discretion.

Trash was taken to top of driveway

Owner's Response: We're very disappointed in receiving your post, as stated before we did have a problem with our cleaning lady in which we did have to let her go after your stay. We now have a new cleaning crew which is doing a Great Job. We have owned and rented our Lake House for 10 years and we take pride in having our renters enjoy there stay. We do our best to resolve any problems that may occur. Karin Cizek

Lovely home in a charming location

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for our needs while attending a family reunion in Gainesville. The home was stocked with everything we needed and the spacious many rooms also provided privacy. Two master suites~~Neat and clean throughout. The owner were very accommodating and very accessible if there was a question. We would definitely stay at the Shiny Bucket again.

Just had the BEST vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Can't tell you how perfect the house was. Spent a week here. What a lovely home and setting. There was something interesting to see in every room. The home was clean, spacious and oh, sooo comfortable! The listing was accurate. Anything you could possilby need was supplied. It was so peaceful and secluded, yet the location is perfect - close to anything you might want to do or visit. We did of course see many deer (and a red fox!) in the yard. We swam, drifted around on floats and fished off the dock! Spent tons of time on the wonderful deck, relaxing and grilling. Rented a Pontoon Boat, just 1 mile away at Gainesville Marina, and explored Lake Lanier and its many secluded islands. Took short side trips to wonderful quaint little towns, waterfalls, the mountains and panned for gold and gems (got some great gems). We definately needed to say longer. So much to do and see! We were only 5 family members, my husband and myself (60) my parents (80) and my daughter (40) and of course our little dog. The home was so big and perfect for all ages, that we are already planning to go back next summer with additional family members and stay a little longer! I highly recommed this property to anyone looking for a lake vacation.
