People tend to run out of superlatives when talking about Sierra Shores, and you will too. It’s the kind of place that will elicit a smile and an “OMG!” as you walk through the door, and it won’t end there. With lakefront access and views, a designer interior straight out of a magazine, and the highest quality amenities you’ll find in the area, you might just have to come up with your own words for it...like “awespectaculous”.
I can't say enough good things about this place. Its honestly the most impressive rental I've had the pleasure of staying. The view from the balcony is amazing, the kitchen is state of the art, there's even a media room. Everything about the place and even the grounds was impressive. The whole family was equally happy with the stay. Very glad I found this place. Will be staying here again.
Inside the of the property is beautiful and the location is great. I had a very easy check in and the young woman at the desk was very helpful. The issues with this property are more on the management side of it. As soon as I pulled in I was informed there was no way my vehicle would not fit in the parking structure, but that the outside parking was permit only, so I could use that. Well permitted parking is a joke if no one is there to check permits. A group of adult guys parked without permits (not one, the entire weekend, and even used the handicapped space while my entire party had to park at the Safeway and walk back and forth, with a pack and play and car seat, and my son and it was absurd. I was told the elevator had just been fixed, but I actually got stuck in it for 20 minutes until my husband came and found me banking on it from the inside. Again, hauling for a party including kids up 2 flights of stairs is not really worth the luxury price tag paired with the parking fiasco. Saturday there was glass all over the walkway in front of unit 8, I called the number, and after 4 hours, ended up cleaning most of it up myself. Saturday night one person in my group was able to get into the garage which led the the fiasco on Sunday in which people literally double parked in front of the garages and behind cars so we had to wait 40 minutes past checkout while these people came back from taking pictures on the beach and having breakfast. Total nightmare. For a group of guys this may be great, but as a family we would go back to Buckingham Properties for the same price and a unit where I don't have to clean up after my children and random adults. At a minimum there should be someone on the grounds for the Sunday checkout window so people don't actually have to have verbal altercations to hit the check out time.
Had a great Vacation! of course the snow helped a lot but my family really enjoyed
the condo. On arrival found a hair ball in the Master Shower (not good) but all & all a very clean nice unit and we plan to return.
The property was gorgeous, and was within a short distance to the super market, which made everything extremely simple. Could't have asked for a better situation.
Sierra Shores is absolutely a wonderful, relaxing getaway for any family. We have made this a regular desitnation now, for going on 5 years. The ground-keepers and gardeners are continuiing to maintain the property beautifully. Housekeeping, as well, is maintaining the interior of the property to 'new' status. Furnishings - linens, towels, furniture, kitchen items - all well maintained and beautiful.
The overall scene is serene and peaceful. The staff is fine, with Lisa, truly being a staff member you can rely on to serve you and make your stay outstanding. We only needed her once during our stay, to renew a light bulb and add pillow cases. She responded quickly and with the 'Ritz Carlton' service and care.
We did have a few issues this year - with appliances, screen doors and sundry items - we went out and purchased sundry supplies. We think at $1,300 / night, these items should be non-issues.
Dinner - Scuza's, Cafe Fiore, Nephele's
Breakfast / lunch - Red Hut, Beach Hut Deli
Activities - lounging in a beautiful environment, on the beach or your patio (highly recommended); parasailing, wave runners, peddle boats, paddle boards, bike riding, hiking, motor boats - there's just tons of activities to choose from. Also, Harvey's has an outdoor Summer Concert Series and sometimes you may catch a fantastic group and enjoy the tunes under the stars - that's really fun!.
You will certainly enjoy and appreciate Sierra Shores, its location on the lake, the private beach, beautiful accomodations - all comprise an exquisite development creation. We call it a Gem on South Shore.
