This beautiful, very private “casita style' studio, with separate outside entrance, is located on the walkout level of Brookside Retreat, on a quiet canopied lane in Hot Springs Village.
Your hosts, Jim and Jill Anderson and resident retrievers, Sadie and Mac, will do everything possible to make your stay as pleasant as possible. This south of the border inspired studio is just the place to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature that abound here! Take the paved walkway from the off-street parking to this special place, where the sounds of the woods and stream below offer serenity and peace for your special vacation.
Sunny Oaks features a comfortable sitting area with efficiency kitchen and soft, cozy places for reading and relaxing. The sleeping alcove features a chenille and quilt covered queen bed that faces the serenity of the forest thru full-length windows. A ¾ bath completes the interior. The studio is furnished with textiles and décor obtained from our visits to Ecuador, Mexico and Peru, along with original art and prints collected over many years. The spacious, covered 'cabana' deck provides for comfortable and private outdoor living, year around.
If you will be traveling with friends, think about adding on our Forest Glen Apartment (VRBO property # 193378), another wonderful oasis in the forest that is easily accessible from Sunny Oaks, yet with it's own private entrance and outdoor living.
Forest Glen is a one bedroom apartment featuring king bed; an efficiency kitchen with sitting area and full bath. Furnishings in Forest Glen are Asian/Indonesian/Eclectic. Just below the house, there is a woodland walkway leading to a forest deck and fire pit that overlooks the stream. This deck can be accessed from both Forest Glen and Sunny Oaks. It's a peaceful and serene place to enjoy the abundance of nature.
The location is ideal for those wanting easy access to all Village amenities, including golf courses, fitness center, trail systems, outdoor pools, tennis center and 12 beautiful lakes! Our quiet lane is a great place to take a “walk with nature” as it loops around thru the forest and back to your starting point..... exactly a mile in length. Along the way you may see deer, the red-tailed hawk, a turtle or two and lots of wildflowers. You may hear an owl and much conversation among birds in the canopy above. Sunny Oaks is 'dog friendly' and we will warmly welcome your travel companion, providing he/she has good house manners. A small pet fee is required.
Hot Springs Village is America's largest gated community and is a wonderful place to vacation or live, with spectacular scenery, moderate climate, warm and friendly people, relaxed and casual lifestyle and some of the best golf, boating and recreational opportunities you’ll find anywhere! Hot Springs Village and neighboring Hot Springs (just 20 minutes away!) also offer great restaurants, live music/concerts, art galleries and events, botanical gardens, horse racing at Oaklawn, family fun at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls and lots of shopping! In a nutshell... it’s the whole package, a great vacation destination or lifestyle choice for retirees or an entire family!
Lake Ouachita State Park and Marina is just 20 minutes from the Village West Gate. The lake, dubbed “Arkansas’ Ocean”, is 50 miles long with over 200 islands for picnicing and relaxing…….. it is a vacation paradise for those who love boating and fishing, kayaking and scuba diving. If you are up for a real treat, take a morning or late day cruise with Captain Jim on our new 22 ft. pontoon on Lake Ouachita. See the wildlife and all the birds and glimpse "The Natural State" in all it's glory!

Greetings from Jim and Jill Anderson and Hot Springs Village! I am a real estate broker and Jim has been a general contractor for 30 years, building everything from golf resorts to custom homes in PA, CO and AR. During the 90's in Durango, CO, we owned and operated Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast. We miss many things about Colorado... including the awesome beauty, but we don't miss the cold or the snow and the high prices!
Jill Anderson purchased this studio in 2007
Today we are happily living the good life in Hot Springs Village. We decided on the Village after much on-line and in-person research. We wanted a beautiful spot, with low cost of living and lots of amenities that would be close to our children in Mississippi and Texas. We purchased our first townhome in 2007 and lived in it while we built our new home here. Later, we decided to keep the townhome and make it available to friends and family who visit and occasional paying guests. We have had so many requests for bookings that we decided last summer to add our guest apartment, here at the house, to give us two vacation rental options. This spring, we added a third property, another townhome, to the mix. So, now we have something for everyone and since we love hosting people who come to the Village to explore, play and enjoy themselves, we are truly in our element…..it’s almost like the B&B, but without the Breakfast!
We furnish our units with comfortable furniture and quality bedding. They are all nicely decorated with things we love….a few “family” antiques, original art and momentos we have picked up on our many travels. We are dog friendly, knowing that since our two golden retrievers are part of our family, your canine companions must be too! Come spend some time in the Village... play some golf, fish, hike, play tennis, swim, read and relax.... We look forward to making one of our vacation rentals your “home away from home”!
Jim and Jill are fantastic hosts! My fiancé and I had an absolutely wonderful time staying at their studio. Everything we could have possibly needed was available, and the studio itself was very clean and cozy. The surrounding area was very peaceful and the drive into Hot Springs was an easy one. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our trip. Thank you both for everything - we look forward to visiting again soon!
We spent a week there and the peaceful setting was so relaxing. The studio was everything we needed for our stay and more. We are discussing our stay there for next year already. I would highly recommend staying there for a peaceful get away.
My partner and I were looking for a retreat in nature away from our hectic lives, and this was the perfect place to unwind. Loved the deck, the solitude, and the tree swing! The apartment was furnished with everything that we needed to relax, cook, and sleep away our stress. Two thumbs up!
We had a wonderful time. Quite and cozy, just what we wanted and much more!
We enjoyed our stay at Sunny Oaks .
Celebrating our 46th anniversary ...we were satisfied not only for the peace and quiet , but the tidy cabin . We loved the coziness and comfort and enjoyed the Mexican decor!
This cozy studio was very comfortable and just as cute as the pictures. Everything we could possibly need was provided. We will definitely
stay here again when returning to the Village Thanks to Jim and Jill for making our stay a pleasant one.
