California Dreamin' at Lake Gaston
  • 5 of 5
A great time was had by all, grandparents with children and their spouses and 5 grandchildren, 11 total. The house was perfect for us, each family had their own floor and what a treat having 2 complete kitchens! Kids loved the ping pong table and foosball, but really loved fishing from the pier and jumping from the deck of the boathouse. Grandparents really appreciated the easy walk to the boathouse! House was clean and had everything we needed. Sondra was always prompt to reply to any questions and extremely accommodating when we had to bring our dog at the last minute. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Beautiful home with lovely view of the lake.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 of 5
Had a wonderful family reunion. Age range from infant to great-grandfather. Home is just as pictures show. Our stay, mostly, was very relaxing. Upon leaving, we were approached with an invoice. Although house was as published, we have yet to receive our deposit back and the home was left in condition as we moved in. We would like our deposit on the rental home returned to us as the contract on the rental house stated.

Owner's Response: The jetski is on my property and considered contents of my property. See damage reservations deposit which explains contents of my property. The damage done to the jetski was a broken scuba scuba mask. The blue compartment inside jetski was torn to shreds. The keystrap was broken and was then tied together with a rope. These items were paid for except for the repair of the jetski. If you had any issues with the jetski, I asked you to call me. I did not receive a call. The damage to the jetski came to $1119 due to 4 broken motor mounts which caused a huge oil leak. In the contract, you were also responsible to take out the trash to the dumpster but did not. I had to do this myself over the course of 2 days because of the amount of trash involved. Some of you helped me on the second day and I appreciate that. The 2 gas grills were also not cleaned which is also part of the contract. There were a total of 54 people that stayed in my home during the whole week. The contract states a maximum of 19 with any additional people at $100.00 per person. Three boats and three trailers were also illegally parked on my drainage field which the contract states additional parking is located on the double boathouse lot which was not used. After 3 years of renting I have had nothing but pleased guests and 5 star ratings. On the day of their departure, I had to ask them to leave and never return. The rules of the contract were simply not followed.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING MADE OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY GET TOGETHER WONDERFUL !

  • 5 of 5
Instead of a big party we wanted to spend time with our Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren all together and have fun. That we did while staying at this wonderful place.
Everyone enjoyed swimming, fishing, boating, tubing, and just relaxing. The home set up was wonderful and made our time together special. Sondra was wonderful and helpful when I had questions. The week prior to us I guess was a mess with people taking advantage and had more people than allowed, but we found the place clean and ready to move into for our stay. Children loved the foos-ball and ping pong table also. We had a photographer come for family pictures with wonder scenery to use. I would suggest this place for anyone wanting to have a nice time with their family and you won't want to leave as it is so enjoyable to be there. Thanks Sondra for renting us this wonderful place.

WONDERFUL WEEK IN THE CALIFORNIA DREAMIN HOME

  • 5 of 5
Everything was wonderful from the time we arrived till the time we left. Home was as pictured. It had everything and more for a great vacation. Sondra is very pleasant and helpful to work with and is very accommodating. The home is locating in a perfect spot, less than 5 minutes to a boat launch, 10 minutes to grocery store, 2 minutes to a gas station/mart. We will definitely be renting this home again!!! No one could ever give any negative feedback on their stay here!

NEW YEAR GETAWAY...

  • 5 of 5
It's been our second time we rented this beautiful house. We were a group of 5 families with kids from Northern Virginia and we just LOVED this house. The house is absolutely stunning. It has great interior and exterior designs. It is a cozy place to stay and has everything you would need to have an amazing and unforgettable getaway. Owners of the house, Sondra and Robbie, put a lot of efforts to make you feel like home. They are great people to deal with, very responsive and helpful.
All in all, we have had a great time and looking forward to be back to this house again. I would highly recommend "California Dreaming" lake house to everyone who wants to have a great vacation with family or friends and get unforgettable memories.
