We had a great family get-together.We had a family get together at "Casa De Cozumel" for 2 days. It was a part of 8 adults and 5 kids. The stay was excellent overall.

Couple of things which stood out are, Access to the lake from the deck, Kayak, lots of life jackets, floating tube, Beautiful deck, BBQ, Kitchen utensils, 2 futons (we used only 2, there are more), Pool table, Amazing views from the living room/dining room/deck etc.

I have been communicating with Julia and she was very helpful and understanding.

Excellent for A to Z!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental experience was top notch!

First off let me say that the owner was extremely involved in helping our experience be the best it could be. From the initial rental inquiries through our checkout, Julia, ensured we were comfortable with every detail of our stay.

The property was warm and accommodating, perfect for a group getaway. We could not have asked for a better location, a better property or a better view.

Our hats off to the owners.

Our stay was wonderful, and more than we expected

  • 3 of 5

Every thing was wonderful and more than we expected. Plenty of room for visiting relatives. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Clean, well equipped, and a great place for anything anyone could want. Would return again. Thanks again for everything.

Julia was friendly and welcoming. She was responsive to our rental inquiry and questions through phone and email. (Note: Homeaway email system did fail to send a response, traveler may want to confirm the receipt of emails for important questions) I’ll go over few things we liked during our stay.

-Lake view in the dining room and living room was fantastic.

-The house is equipped with most everyday tools, utensils and accessories.

-There are a lot of board games on the shelf. We brought our own, but we were pleased to see that we have other options.

-Poker table. Pool table. Big dining table.

-Kitchen is well equipped. It even has a kitchenaid mixer.

-Jucuzzi was clean. The sundeck downstair had chairs, bbq grill and a fire pit. It was raining whole day during our stay and we didn’t use any of this, but we can see ourselves enjoying the day or night out there.

-Clean sheets and pillow cover were provided for the futon beds.

The house comes with a lot of decorations (old style phone, figures on the wall ect). It also posts some history about the house and the original owner. The house was not super new, but it was organized and was comfortable to stay.

Overall, we would recommend it to any of group of friends and families for a peaceful time at Clear Lake.

Owner's Response: We were very pleased to be able to host Jimmie and his friends. It was on short notice so we were unable to preview the home after the housekeepers; as we do with most of our guests. Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay even with the rain. The house was the Postmaster's home and was built in 1939. It was an unusual custom home for it's day (redwood exposed beam ceilings, built-in library, split level, tiled baths) . We have tried to keep some of it's original charm while updating and remodeling. The house was oriented for it's panoramic views and continues to please our guests. Jimmie and his guests were very clean and respectful and we look forward to their return....rain or shine! Julia

Great Team Bonding

  • 4 of 5

I recently took our team to stay at Casa de Cozumel and had a great stay and accommodations. We were in the area for a tournament and stayed 2 nights and we will definitely be back next year! The house was set up and clean upon arrival and the owner checked in to see if we needed anything else.

Great Expereince!

Owner's Response: We were very happy to be able to accomodate this traveling youth team. They left the house very nice and seemed to enjoy themselves. The coach was very professional when making the reservation and they all treated are home with respect leaving it clean and tidy. We will welcome their return next year and would recommend them to any other vacation rental owner in Northern California. Thank You Ladies ! Julia and Gianni

Fantastic getaway place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 16 at Casa de Cozumel over New Years. Everything in the house was very well-maintained and clean and Julia, the owner, is the nicest person I have ever rented a house from. When you lie on the sundeck and watch the lake, you actually think you are in paradise. However, when you are in the house with 16 people it feels a bit cramped and we couldn't figure out where 16 people should sleep unless you where using one of the beds that is standing outside - a bit cold in winter (good we brought an air-mattress). But other than that it was perfect and we definitely plan to come back in summer with less people.

Owner's Response: Rhea and her friends were the perfect guests. They checked in with no problem and enjoyed our home for the New Years holiday. As noted the maximum guests we can accomodate is 16 . They originally requested 14 but added two at the last minute (at no extra cost) . In order to accomodate 16 it would mean everyone doubled up in all the King, Queen and Full beds and that includes the futon that is on the upper terrace outside which could have been brought inside. Though they were cramped, it did not show as they left the house spotless with everything neatly back in its place. We would welcome them back any time and look forward to their return.

Well-equipped family home, questionable plumbing

  • 2 of 5

We had 4 families with a lot of kids come to Clearlake for a weekend in order to attend the memorial service for our Grandmother. Including the children, we were a few over the stated maximum capacity for this house, but we asked and Julia gave us permission to stay. The house only has 3 bedrooms, but there were at least 3 futons and a large couch and plenty of floor space in the common areas, so it was snug but we all had a good time.

The house is well-equipped for children of all ages. There was a closet full of toys, a small table and chairs, highchair, crib, potty seat, etc. for our younger ones. Then there was the pool table and game console and hot tub and boat dock that the older kids enjoyed. A couple of our kids just had fun counting the number of old phones that were displayed throughout the house, and “making calls” in the downstairs phone booth.

The kitchen was well supplied, though a bit cramped for a group our size. It was fully stocked with plenty of dishes and silverware for all of us, as well as serving bowls and utensils. The double ovens were very helpful, and we were thankful for the dishwasher. Between the dining table, the outdoor patio table & the little kids table, there was plenty of seating space. We had a few additional family members over for a lunch reception after the memorial service and it worked out fine—Julia even got out her nicer dishes and serving trays for that, which was an added special touch.

This isn't a plush upscale resort home, but with all our kids, that's not what we were looking for. So there were a few things that could have been better maintained (a faucet drain was slow, a pot full of water from a leak in the kitchen, a missing deck board) but those were not a huge deal. What WAS a big deal was that the main sewer line clogged completely on our second night, resulting in raw sewage bubbling up in both upstairs tubs and toilets and then onto the floors. Thankfully, Julia was able to get a plumber out to the house who eventually cleared the line, but our whole evening was wasted cleaning up the huge mess. Hopefully that has been resolved and will not occur again, but for that reason I would be very hesitant to bring a big group again.

Julia was quick in communication and easy to work with in preparation for our weekend, but unfortunately I think we got on her bad side with the plumbing fiasco and then things were not so pleasant.

Overall it's a good house as long as the plumbing works properly.

Owner's Response: This guest is exaggerating. Contrary to what they say that they had well over the house occupancy. They requested that we rent our house for 20 (8 adults plus 12 kids).We first denied them saying that 20 was too much, but they begged us to allow them to stay. Told us it was for their grandmother’s funeral. We put set a nice table with linens for them so that they could come back from the funeral and have a family meal. But it is clear now that they had a full reception at the house which we estimate the guest count to be approximately 25 - 30 guests.…way over the 16 people max occupancy of the house. So what do they expect when they have that many people in the house? A prudent person would realize that this is the reason for the toilet backing--up? Instead of plunging and clearing the toilet they kept flushing and caused the toilet to overflow possibly damaging our hardwood floors. They had already been there for two days without any problems. It was late at night on their last evening that they called (the same day as the funeral and reception). As stated in the review we had a plumber on the scene within 30 minutes. The plumber cleared the toilet in less than 20 minutes. He noted that it was not a bad clog and they could have done the same to clear it. They insisted that we send in housekeepers at 10:30 at night or they would all leave and want a full refund. We were unable to reach any housekeepers and asked that they clean up their own mess which turns out to be mostly toilet water from what we could tell. We called the plumber to go back to the house in the morning and he found that they were still there. They did not leave until 2:00 pm, which is 3 hours late from departure. When we arrived at the house we found a dozen some slightly soiled towels and no raw sewage to speak of. In addition to returning their undeposited security check, we sent them $100.00 for the inconvenience though we do not think it was our fault. They told us that all of their guests loved the house and would like to rent it again, but they threatened to write a bad review if they did not receive more money back. In our opinion it seems that their intentions all along were to try and not pay for their lodging. We also found that the cover to our spa filter was gone. This part is not available and will cost hundreds of dollars to replace or refabricate. They did not offer to compensate us for this spa part, instead wrote this poor review.
