About The Owner

My wife Carmen & I have 4 kids ranging from 12 to 20 years old. We live in Atlanta.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Seneca

We love the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and crystal clear water at Lake Keowee. Close proximity to restaurants and stores in downtown Seneca. Awesome weekend retreat for Clemson home football games.

We love to sit on the balcony with a cool beverage, watch the ducks and turtles in the cove and listen to the beautiful sounds of the lake.

What makes this house unique

We swim and water ski from April to October and snow ski at Saphire from December to March. In the fall we take in Clemson home football games with friends. We always play tennis at South Cove Park (5 minutes away) or golf at one of the several courses in the area.

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our first VRBO on Lake Keowee and it was excellent! This home is great for a large family gathering. We hope to return next year and get our friends to rent the house next door. We had plenty of room in the driveway for our boat trailer & 4 cars. Lake Keowee water was cool, clear and great for swimming and boating. Plenty of hiking trails within a short drive. Thanks for letting us share your beautiful home.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with another family and we had a blast. We loved having the two living areas that we could spread out in. The house was clean and the cove is very peaceful. The furnishing are very comfortable and plenty of seating for everyone. Our kids loved having the bunk room that they could all hang out in and loved the air hockey table and ping pong table. It was a great weekend and we hope to visit again someday.

Wonderful family time at the lake

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited from Mississippi Gulf Coast and stayed at your lake house. Everything was wonderful! Thank you so much for your special touch of fresh flowers that made us feel like we were being 'welcomed home'. We hope to be able to stay again soon.

Lake Wylie Boaters weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the weekend along with the one next door for a group of 6 couples. We enjoyed the houses and our time on the beautiful lake. Great place to rent if you are bringing your boats along and very convenient location. We will be returning next summer if not before.

Property needs attention!

  • 3 of 5

While the property was quiet and lovely the home needed some attention. The extensive decks on both levels have great potential and might have been enjoyed if they were cleaned. It was dark and slimy mostly from tree droppings. My husband had to scrape outdoor high-top table before we could eat on it. He also spent some of his time unplugging toilets. Laundry was left in dryer upon our arrival and refrigerator was not cleaned. The dock was our favorite place to relax however some of our personal items were stolen on 2 different nights. We did notify the owners of these problems. I believe after some updates to this property this would be a great place to relax and unwind.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate feedback from our renters so we can keep our house appealing for future renters. We do have wonderful decks outside which are surrounded by trees and that allows renters to sit outside in shade for most of the day. That is what makes our property so private and lovely. With the heavy pollen season and heavy rain to follow, the decks were in need of attention. We have since cleaned and pressure washed all the decks and outside areas to make them more enjoyable for everyone who visits. The other issues have been brought to the attention of the cleaning service and will not happen again.

Five championship golf courses within thirty minute drive. During the winter months, Sapphire Mountain has great snow skiing and snowboarding - only 45 minute drive. Many great restaurants in the area.
