About Walter Sain
My wife Karen and I grew up in the Charlotte Area. Both of us attended and graduated from local Charlotte High Schools. All of our relatives live in and around Charlotte. We moved on the lake in 1998 after we built our custom home.
Walter Sain purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Walter Sain chose Lake Wylie
Lake Wylie is a beautiful lake and our sunrises are very impressive. The house is situated on the west side of our lot from the lake and it is shady on the dock from around 4:00 pm. A steady breeze makes fishing and resting on the pier very relaxing.
What makes this Apartment unique
Very close to downtown Charlotte makes this a perfect spot to commute. My wife and I are both realtors, licensed in both North and South Carolina and would be delighted to show you a property while you stay with us.

Fantastic lake setting
Such thought went into preparing this basement setting for guests
1) Great dock for laying out, cocktails, floating and riding owner's kayaks
2) Beautiful landscaping and multiple nice areas for morning coffee/cocktails. Pictures do not do justice btw
3) Super accommodating owners who even had champagne and flowers for our 30th annversary. Were available if we needed them, yet gave us total privacy.
4) Well stocked kitchen with all we needed for preparing meals at "home"
5) Great wifi for keeping in touch, plus direct tv.
1) Only 1, we only stayed 3 nights, wish it was longer.
Amazing experience. Highly recommend!
Owners were amazing and so nice, and very helpful. House was very nice and our children absolutely loved it. I would recommend this rental to anyone!
We booked this last minute and had An amazing weekend! The pictures online do not so this place justice. It’s beautiful, so clean, he owners are so nice and made our weekend so special! I would highly recommend coming here!!
Charm and kayaks
I would rate this property as 4 stars, except that the opportunity to use the kayaks on Lake Wylie puts it over the top. It was a very nice place to stay for our party of 3 and met all of our needs. It's the first-floor apartment in a 2-story home on a sloping property, ground level or above on the lake side. I prefer windows on all sides (the one bathroom and the cozy second bedroom don't have windows), but that isn't possible here. The master bedroom has wonderfully open vistas on the lake, as do the living and dining area. The unit has a billiards table in the middle of the kitchen-living area, which would be great for some folks (not my thing, but my husband and guest enjoyed it). The kitchen, which appears to be small in the photos, is more than adequate with lots of counter space and cabinetry. The beds and furniture were very comfortable; we slept like babies. There's an ample screened porch, also with plenty of comfortable furniture. Life jackets and kayaks are provided. The property is very nicely landscaped with lots of semi-private outside areas. The owners had set up a fire for us in the outside fireplace. If you want to use the indoor gas fireplace, be sure to ask the owners beforehand if the gas is turned on. It wasn't. They provided an electric heater instead, which kept us cozy, but we'd have preferred to use the fireplace. In general, the arrangement offers a lot of privacy, and the stone walkways and paths give it a lot of charm.
Thanks for your feedback.
This was a great review with the exception of the fireplace not being set up.
We had the logs and gas turned on this week and should you decide to stay again they will be available also.
Walter and Karen
The best experience in a long time!!
We can’t say enough about this property to give it justice. This has to be the most beautiful properties we have stayed at. Both inside and out, the perfection is everywhere. Our hosts made themselves available at a moments notice if needed but also provided an environment for privacy. Very spacious two bedroom suite with everything you could ask for. Kayaks, paddles, life vests, swings, 6 private seating areas... The home and hosts were very special and we hope to create a long lasting relationship with both!
The David family enjoyed their time at our Lake Lovers Haven. They brought their jet skiis and used our ski ports. They were able to grill out and enjoy the Kyaks.
They especially seemed to enjoy sleeping in and just relaxing with a cup of cofee in the screen porch. Extra life jackets for the grand kids were requested and appreciated.
Please come back, David family you will always be welcomed here.
Wonderful place on the lake
The property was just as described! We fished a lot, and caught several!! A couple of really big catfish. The host were readily available for a couple of minor issues, but were never overwhelming or “in the way”, like I worried about a little with it being a basement apartment. They were AWESOME!! We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to a friend! Thanks for a great time!
We were so pleased to have the Lackey family stay with us.
They had a problem with Netfix on the TV and we got them going.
Their son was the avid fisherman and had lots of fun.
They brought their boat and was able to park the trailer in our driveway.
Come again Lackeys!
