Just bring your own boat if you'd like to park in the boat dock in back yard! This private lakefront oasis is completely furnished with everything you need for a memorable vacation or just some private 'get-away' time. Book early to get the dates you want!
The relaxing views of the lake from the inside or the pool feels like the vacation we've always enjoyed the most and enjoyed going back over and over. It seems like each time gets better than the last.
I read the previous review the day before we were to leave for vacation and panicked. I emailed the rental agent, but didn't get a response. I called the rental office and Ms. Pat saved my sanity. She called the handyman/yard keeper to check the property and fix whatever needed to be cleaned up. She also called the cleaning lady to head to the house and make sure it was spotless. The bathroom was sprayed for ants also. I was still stressed about everything being taken care of so Ms. Pat personally drove to the property to make sure everything was in check.
We arrived the next day and the yard was cut, house was spotless, and pool was clean. We met the handyman who happened to be the neighbor, who just returned from his own vacation. He was so nice and helpful. He came every morning to clean the pool.
The sunroom did have a bad leak in two spots so the handyman came and cleared the gutters to redirect the rain overflow. This made a huge difference and we only saw a little drip in one spot for the next rain. The owner was aware of the issue and would be fixing it.
I saw black ants in the half bath and laundry room (which share a wall) only after the big rain. I sprayed the base boards in both rooms and never saw them return- even after it rained again.
The house was big and comfy. It had everything we needed. We used the pool every morning and evening. It was an easy drive to all the touristy things we wanted to do.
Huge thanks to Ms. Pat (Diamondhead Realty) for going above and beyond to ensure everything was ready for us before arrival and to the handyman (sorry I can't remember your name) for getting everything done and coming right away to help with the sunroom leak.
We've booked numerous properties on VRBO and trust the reviews more than anything. I was a little leery with this property due to it's small number of reviews and the timing of those (2 years old). That said the house undelivered.
It's in a great gated community with a golf course, pool, security, etc. The house itself is lakefront with a private dock and pool. Big backyard with easy access to the lake (aside from dock). The house layout is great for families as the master (big) is on one side and the two smaller bedrooms on other. Very nice sunroom overlooking backyard and lake.
The landscaping hasn't been taken care of this year at the very least. The front yard area is overflowing on the sidewalk and you have to maneuver around to get to front door. The sprinkler system came on and every location just bubbled and created huge muddy pools. The pool is older and wasn't clean. The deck has loose boards and various rough patches of wood. The outdoor patio fan wouldn't work. The oven light was burned out. The sunroom leaked badly when a significant storm came through. The blankets in the smaller bedrooms (in closet) smelled badly. There were continuous ants in the guest bathroom. There were sticky spots on the floor in the sunroom which when cleaned the paper towels were completely brown. There wasn't lounge chairs for the pool. The trash can on the deck hadn't been emptied from previous visitors. There was/is poison ivy on a post by the dock.
Okay, everything I just listed is not necessarily significant independently; but added all up it did create a so-so experience.
One side note; the power did go out one day due to a big storm and the owner came by and made sure we were okay. A very kind gesture. She seemed very nice and probably just doesn't know about some of these small issues and we certainly didn't think that moment was the appropriate avenue to discuss.
Just spent a fantastic weekend at the Lakefront Oasis. It was a girls getaway for five women. We enjoyed every minute. The owners are very accomodating. The house is perfect.. plenty of room and comfortable with stylish home decor. We spent the majority of time in the pool or sitting out by the pool. We'd definitely stay here again. THANKS!
We had a great time staying at this beautiful home. The pool was great and it had every amenity you could ask for or need. We loved the views of the lake and the spacious lawn was great for playing outdoor games on. Added bonus for us was the covered boat slip accommodating our boat and two jet skis. Neighborhood was quiet and great for evening walks or runs. We all voted at the end and agreed we would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay in this home very much. It was very clean and well maintained. The kids loved the pool area and we loved the beautiful view of the lake. Great place to relax.
Have rented this house several times. It is amazing! Quiet, super nice, all the amenities. Wish I could buy it and live here. Rick and his wife are super accomodating and extremely nice. It is perfect!
