About Mike Harley

Were a family of 4. We believe in having a awesome time on vacation within a Christian atomsphere.

Mike Harley purchased this house in 2008

Why Mike Harley chose Lake Murray

We love the lake for vacationing because it is a quiet setting yet close to Lexington for all your needs. We are approx. 1.5 hours from Augusta National ( The Masters) golf course. Columbia airport is 20-25 mi away. Golf course on the lake (Timber Lake Country Club)

What makes this house unique

* 6yr old home overlooking Lake Murray - Fantastic views.

* If you like skiing, tubing, wake boarding - then you'll love our cove. ( Rocky Creek )

* If you like fishing - then you'll find it very fruitful with Striper, Bass, Brim/Crappie and Catfish.

* If you like to party - then you'll find several restaurant/grills/live music or go to one of the party coves for a tie up.

This house is absolutely beautiful along with the property around it! The sunroom & huge window at the back of the house is 10x better in person! The view cannot be beat, I can't even put into words how beautiful it is! The owner, Mike was so nice & helpful throughout the process. The house was more than spacious enough for all 8 of us. The neighbors are a little closer than we thought they would be & we were worried because the house we stayed at last year was a little more secluded but we had no issues what so ever! We grilled out & enjoyed the deck both nights and did not feel as if we were being too loud for the neighbors. We met people from the houses on both sides & they were so friendly!! Perfect location, perfect house, perfect weekend! We are from Charleston & spend a weekend at Lake Murray every summer...will definitely be staying here again!!

Didn't live up to its potential

  • 2 of 5

The lake view was beautiful, and the house was set up with the furniture arranged to maximize that view and easy conversational grouping. Unfortunately, a number of other factors detracted significantly from enjoyment of the house. There was no closet in the master bedroom; the closet in another bedroom had only 4 hangars. Owner property was in various places throughout the house (not just in locked areas or closets), including a pile of fishing gear in the corner. There was a bar of soap in the shower in the master bathroom, which raised questions for me about how thoroughly the place had been cleaned between guests. However, the most significant problem for me was the dishwasher. When I arrived at the property with my infant daughter and elderly parents, I found that the dishwasher was broken and that no repair visit was scheduled. Over the week, I corresponded multiple times with the owner and spoke repeatedly with the repair person that he had selected. Because this repairman had not been informed of the nature of the problem, he had me run a number of diagnostic tests (e.g., start the dishwasher, run it for two minutes, stop it and observe the water level; run a full cycle of the dishwasher and open it during the heated dry to determine whether it was drying; etc.). However, he indicated that he would not be able to make a visit that week. I ended up spending a large part of my "vacation" washing and sterilizing bottles, baby dishes, toys, and teething rings; corresponding with the owner about the problem; and running diagnostic tests for a service person who was not contacted prior to my arrival and who could not make repairs during my stay.

Owner's Response: Hello - We are so glad you enjoyed the views, the house and other amenities of the house. We are very sorry for the dishwasher issues. unfortunately I wasn't successful in getting a repairman to travel to the property and resolve the issue. During your stay I was out of town on vacation myself and wasn't able to come to the house and resolve the problem, however the following Sunday I went to Lowe's and purchased a brand new dishwasher and installed it. in addition I had to purchase and install a new water heater. So these issues are now resolved and were resolved as quickly as possible. We apologize greatly for the inconvenience. We hope that you would come back and vacation again and for the troubles we would give you a discount on the rate. Thank you very much - The Harley's

Didn't want to leave!

We LOVED this home. The pictures didn't do it justice. Mike and his daughter met us there and they were SO nice. The home was VERY clean (and I'm very picky about that). The neighbors Denny and Joyce, were SO sweet. We rented a pontoon boat by the marina right next door, spent the day on the lake swimming, tubing, and fishing, then spent the rest of the time on the private dock, in a private cove in the back yard, just relaxing, fishing, a few beers and watching the beautiful sunset each night. 3 days was not enough time and want to go back next year for a week and bring a boat :) The kitchen was fully stocked. We cooked and ate in all 3 nights and didn't need a thing. Thanks Mike for making us so comfortable and allowing us in your beautiful home :)
