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 Hawkins

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

Totally enjoyed Sandi's lakehouse. We got together from 3 states for a family get-together, & the house was perfect for such an occasion. Everyone loved the hominess of the place. There were plenty of "gathering" areas...the open kitchen, back porch, front porch & living room. Everyone in our group was impressed w/the supplies that were on hand in the stocked kitchen. We all agreed that it was the perfect choice for our family's mini reunion!😊

PS Sandi will accommodate you in any way that she can. She's a delightful hostess.

Great house for our one month stay until our we could close on our new house. The house was well stocked; the layout was perfect for our family; and the hosts were very helpful. Thanks for letting us share your home.

House was great.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was inviting and comfortable.

Instructions for gaining access to the property were clear and everything worked smoothly.

The sleeping arrangements were perfect for us. Granddaughter and I slept in the loft and it was perfect.

The house was within easy walking distance to all the activities which we enjoyed. It was nice not having to get into the car to do things.

Kids enjoyed the movies and toys as well. We look forward to another visit.

Sandi, the only thing we did not find was a cutting board. We will bring one for you on our next stay.

Thank you for having such a great place for our use.
