About Sandi

Bob, retiring 10 yrs. ago, has kept himself busy by building our home on Lake Hawkins and remodeling our Holly Lake home. I am a retired school teacher that finds joy belonging to book groups, community service org., line dancing,clogging, Zumba, quilting and long walks in the woods. We are looking forward to having you as our guest and hope you enjoy our home, the peace, and relaxation that we have at Holly Lake.

Sandi purchased this house in 2012

Why Sandi chose East Texas

We bought this property because of its location, walk to all Holly Lake Ranch amenities, the view of the lake, and the wildlife. We so delight in the activities that go on at the Ranch, and the safe, friendly felling that is there. We wanted the Ranch to be a permanent part of our life and share it with others.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with swinging on the enclosed porch while viewing the lake, the piney woods, the deer in the yard, etc. Then there is the same view from the comfort of the air conditioned/heated living room and master bedroom. Happy hour on the deck is so relaxing. Enjoying the large wood burning fire place during the cool winter months can be so romantic. With the gated community and all the amenities we knew most people would enjoy this house as we do. You can simplify at Sandi's.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our adventure here was so relaxing. Having a place where our family could visit us was so helpful. We enjoyed our surprise visit for our Mom/Grandma birthday. Paul & Debbie of Grass Valley, CA; Tara of Pacific Grove, CA; Kevin & Beka of Ewa Beach, Hawaii

A great lake retreat !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several properties but this one was truly great with many great amenities. Beyond a great location the house is cozy with a great enclosed and open deck areas. The canoe was a lovely touch as we did enjoy fishing. The nearby hiking trails led to fun discoveries.

In the evenings, it was nice to have the loft for the kids to enjoy THEIR area. Couldn't have imagined better.

Thank you Sandi!

Lovely weekend visit

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Holly Lake Ranch and our stay in Sandi's house!

Between two families, we had three children -- a 3-year-old, 2.5-year-old and 1-year-old. The house was child friendly in that there was a secure gate at the bottom of the staircase, plastic cups in the pantry, and even some toys on the screened porch. We had plenty of room in the dining room and living room to spread out and relax. There room in the master bedroom to place a twin air mattress on the floor for our 3-year-old, as well as plenty of space in the other bedroom for a pack & play for the baby. The screened porch is a nice place to sit and relax, and the kids enjoyed playing in that area, particularly when it was raining.

Some vacation rental houses can be a little stingy with the towels and bedding, but there is definitely plenty available here!

The house is in a quiet, wooded area and is very close to the wooded "Waterfall Trail," which allows you to view a nice little waterfall. It's also very close to the lake and the activity center where there is a large (nice!) pool with lifeguards on duty, playground, small mini golf court, and paddle boat rentals for the lake. We visited the playground and pool but didn't do the other available activities.

Wifi worked great throughout the weekend, and we definitely didn't have cell service on any of our phones. We appreciated that there was a Family Dollar nearby, which allowed us to pick up a few forgotten grocery items. Brookshire's is a little further away if you need more of a full service grocery story.

The only thing I would have liked to be different is that the kitchen seemed a little cluttered and unorganized. I imagine this has to do with so many different people staying at the house, but it was hard to find a few things, and the drawers/cabinets didn't feel super-clean (crumbs in the silverware drawer, dust/dirt on the windowsill --- certainly minor issues, but things I noticed nonetheless). However, we did end up finding what we needed to cook all of our meals throughout the weekend, and there were plenty of plates, pots, pans, baking containers, etc.

Notably, Sandi's communication and info about the property was great. You can tell that she wants guests to enjoy their stay, and she put a lot of thought into the info sheet that she sends ahead of check-in. There was also plenty of info about the house, neighborhood, including a map, and community on the kitchen counter.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive things you liked about the rental. I will look into the "crumbs in the the silverware drawer" and wash the dust off the windowsill tomorrow. Again thanks for being our guests. Sandi

Great little lake house in a private community. Spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet, and fairly priced. Thank you for allowing us the use of your home Sandi. Hopefully it will available the next time we are in the area.

The house is very roomy and sits on a large shady lot, plenty of parking.

  • 4 of 5

We only needed to bring food, the house has every thing you need. The close proximity to the lake was ideal for our avid fisherman.

Pretty good stress free stay

  • 4 of 5

Sandi was very professional she followed up with me and kept me posted and gave me all of the required information in a timely manner. All the appliances worked, the beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed provided to us as promised. The only downside was that when we got into the property it had a little bit of an odor which may have just been from no one having aired it out in a while. The next thing we didn't like was that the refrigerator/freezer also had an odor this was so bad that when we put a bag of ice in it and later took it out it had that same odor on the ice. Outside of those few things they were very nice and professional and made our stay very easy. Thanks Sandi!!

Owner's Response: I am very sorry you thought there was an odor. Maybe it was due to the new flooring put into the new sun room addition and I will certainly air it out. Perhaps the guests before you did some unusual cooking? I will put a box of baking soda in the refrigerator and freezer to freshen it also. I will certainly take care of this immediately. Glad you had a nice stay aside from that. Thanks, Sandi

Christmas Celebration at Sandi's

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed celebrations ng Christmas at Sandi's Lake view home. We couldn't believe all the deer roaming around the ranch. The house had everything we needed for preparing our dinner, showering, etc. We would definitely recommend this beautiful home to others wanting an enjoyable place to getaway.
