SUNSHINE LAKE HOUSE ~ YOU WILL LOVE THE VIEWS AND THE HOME!!

Moneta House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Our family welcomes you to enjoy our home the way we have.

Our home is perfect for those who enjoy sitting on the deck to take in the spectacular view of the lake and the mountain AND for those who like to be active in the water. The front of our house includes a long driveway with plenty of parking and a flat front yard. Shoot a few hoops in the driveway or play croquet in the front yard. You can also relax inside with lots of good books and games or catch a movie on TV. Our fully equipped kitchen is ready for you with fresh condiments and spices for your use. You won't mind being in the kitchen preparing a meal with the view you get from the kitchen. The downstairs living area includes a wet bar with refrigerator, TV, games, plenty of seating, and bunk area.

The main floor of our home is the family room, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom with a sliding glass door out to the deck. The downstairs includes a private bedroom, bathroom, laundry room, wet bar, living area and a sliding glass door out to patio.

The carpeted dock includes a table with umbrella for 6 people and additional chairs. There is a floating dock that children (and adults) love jumping off for hours. There is plenty of room for getting comfortable and enjoying friends and family and the spectacular view of the lake. We know from experience that you won't want to leave it to go up for dinner.

We also keep the unit stocked with cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, vacuum, hairdryer, toys, games, and movies.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our friends home on Smith Mountain Lake is a lovely retreat from the hustle and bustle of our every day lives. We always have so much fun in this relaxing environment. The house is very spacious...great for families. The views from the house are beautiful and breathtaking. The house is also relatively close to grocery stores and shopping areas, but is in a quiet secluded cove - far enough away from the jet ski and boat traffic of the lake. The house is very clean and nicely decorated. The downstairs bedroom is nice and private. There is a large oversized deck with awesome water views. It's truly a perfect getaway for the family. I always hope for an annual invitation to our friends home and am hoping to visit again soon. I would definitely recommend the home to family and friends.

The owners are David and Wendy who have five girls. David owns multiple building companies and Wendy is a Homemaker. They live in NC and spend a lot of time at their home at Smith Mountain Lake. Our girls have been going to our lake house since they were babies and they truly do 'swim like fish'. Boating, jet skiing, swimming, jumping off the dock 100X/day make the days fly by. We will continue to come here as this is our second home and we keep it very well maintained.

Property Owner purchased this house in 2001

Our family LOVES the water!! We purchased our home about 10 years ago because of the beauty of the lake and the close proximity to our primary residence in NC. We were very intentional in our attempt to find a home where we could spend quality time building memories with our family. Our children have grown up boating, jet skiing, swimming and relaxing in our home at the lake. Our treasured memories include special times with our girls and with the several family friends that have been with us over the years. We spend all of our days on the water, enjoy appetizers on the dock, head to the house for showers, cook out on the grill, (as the children are constantly playing) and then watch the stars at night. It's amazing how many shooting stars and satellites we see. The opportunity to take in the beauty and serenity of what Smith Mountain Lake has to offer is a blessing to us.

We believe we are in one of the best locations on the lake. Our cove is simply gorgeous and we love our neighbors. We have a very comfortable and cozy home. Every time we arrive at our lake house, there's just a sense of being 'welcomed home' as you walk through the door. We are able to instantly shift gears and take in everything our home as to offer ~ the warmness of the house, the views of the lake and any level of excitement or quietness you prefer.

Specifically, our home is great because we have a separate and private living area downstairs. There is a bedroom and additional bunk area, bathroom, laundry room, full wet bar with refrigerator and living room area with plenty of seating and TV. Fabulous view out the sliding glass door of the lake. This space is wonderful for another family or for additional family members of your own.

PERFECT RETREAT ON THE LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family visited SML for the first time and after searching high and low to find the perfect place to celebrate my dad's retirement - we found this gem! The owner went out of her way to guarantee all of our needs were met. The house was in perfect condition and the view was amazing. The home is very accommodating to all age groups from the games for the kids to the cards for the adults! We are looking forward to our next vacation at SML and are excited that we have found Sunshine Lake House!

GREAT SPOT ON SML

  • 5 of 5
This house has a special spot on the lake, close to but not on main channel with a perfect view! The deck has wonderful seating and grill so most time will be spent here just taking it all in. By land, you are convenient to grocery, restaurant, wineries, SML state park, and more. The house is clean and all you need with obvious attention to detail by owners on the little things such as kitchen tools and more, The welcome book and notes are a great resource for all you need to know. Owners made themselves available for any questions or needs from beginning to end and were a big help and so nice to work with.

WONDERFUL HOME, BEAUTIFUL VIEWS, GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We use VRBO and HomeAway quite often and this was one of our best experiences. Everything stated by the owner and past reviews are accurate. The house is so lovely and spacious enough for a large family. The view truly is one of the best on the lake. We rented a boat so my husband could fish, kayaked all over the lake, swam ( yes it was cold water), and explored the SML region. We fortunately had beautiful warm weather. The house is close to restaurants and grocery store and only 20 minutes from a more developed area for a movie or better shopping. The neighborhood is so nice - you have to be careful where your rental house is located. Our favorite part was enjoying the sunrise each morning with a cup of hot coffee and taking in the view. Thanks, Wendy. We'll be back!

APTLY NAMED SUNSHINE LAKE HOUSE GETS OUR VOTE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four really enjoyed this house. It was clean and well-maintained. The updated kitchen was well-stocked. Whenever we cooked, we had everything we needed right at our fingertips (there was even a coffee bean grinder). The linens were nice and comfy. The decor and furniture made it feel like home.
The owners really did a great job of anticipating what renters need. There were extra blankets and pillows in the closets of each bedroom, clothes hampers, a hairdryer, flashlights, a drying rack for swimsuits, a washer/dryer, games, DVDs, cards, etc.
The location is great for two reasons: (1) by land it's just minutes away from the grocery store, restaurants and boat rental place and (2) while the cove was quiet and relaxing, it was also great for boating, swimming and tubing. Enjoying the quiet still of the mornings with a cup of coffee while sitting on the deck was a little slice of heaven. And the views are fantastic!!
Our kids fished and swam from the dock for hours on end and enjoyed a visit from the ice-cream boat (pretty cool).
The owners provided excellent customer service from the moment we inquired on the house all the way through out our stay. They made sure we had everything we needed and they were available to answer any questions we had during our stay.
We enjoyed several local restaurants: The Smokehouse, Jakes and Jonathan's. We went to Smith Mountain Lake Farm to learn about and spend time interacting with alpacas. It was an awesome experience. And our kids didn't know what a drive-in movie was until we took them to the Mayberry Drive in one night.
We have great memories of our SML vacation. It was the perfect blend of activity and relaxation. We would stay at Sunshine Lake house again and we would gladly recommend it to our friends.

Its location is convenient to grocery shopping, restaurants, and boat rental places. The whole family had a fantastic time and we will definitely rent this place again. If you need to relax and spend quality family time in a fantastic place we highly recommend Sunshine Lake House.

WE LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
This house is immaculate. The quality of everything in the house is very high. This is not like a typical rental house it is very much a home. The owner is excellent to work with. We really appreciated the owner assuring everything met our expectations. The deck is beautiful with a wide view of the cove and also a mountain view to the right. We enjoyed every night out on the deck looking at the moon and stars. We had a lot of fun just swimming off the dock, tubing in the cove, and boating. The neighborhood has a boat ramp which was very convenient for us to put our boat in the water. We look forward to coming back for many years in the future, if they will have us.
