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

Wonderful property with a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property with a perfect location. The cabin and environment were beautiful and really heightened our experience during our vacation. Sandi, I strongly believe you should consider updating the cabin photos as I did not think they did the cabin justice and showed how wonderful of a cabin it truly is! Overall it was an unbelievable trip with an unbelievable cabin and an amazing owner who did everything possible to ensure we had a wonderful and carefree trip. We will go through Sandi and this property without a doubt for our next trip in the area. Thank you Sandi!

Wonderful home to stay in comfortable and spacious with everything you need. Best vacation in five years for our family. The amenities there at Holly Lake Ranch were great something to do for every age group. I would highly recommend staying at Sandi's lake view home.

Awesome Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our girls trip! Sandi was very accommodating and the house was perfect for us! We loved the deck! The community offers so much to do- we hiked, paddle boated, went to the pool and dinner at Taste of Italy on lake Hawkins was wonderful! Would highly recommend for families or any get away retreat!

Nice and rustic

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the home. It was nicely situated near the lake and some of the other amenities. The house very comfortably slept 8 and I would say could have slept 10 if need be. The home was well stocked with toiletries, towels, utensils, etc... There was a good selection of kids movies to watch in the dvd players. The resort itself was fun and had a good amount of stuff for kids of all ages to do. The one thing we were disappointed about was the pool. We knew that there was only one pool open because of the season, but we were under the impression that this was a heated pool. The pool was not heated which made me wonder why it was open and the other pools were not. Also it had two hot tubs at the pool, but we didnt know until my kids were dressed and at the hot tub that children under 16 were not allowed in the hot tubs. Didnt matter if parents were with them or not, they simply were never allowed unless 16. My wife put my kids feet in the hot tub and we were told that we couldnt even do that. Since the pool wasnt heated and they couldnt even use the hot tub, we brought their swimming suits for nothing and got dressed for nothing. They were disappointed. This was a resort problem, not a problem with this home rental, we just wanted to share it for families that may have younger children. But we really had a good time and plan on coming back and renting this exact same home. Sandi was nice to work with, provided me with lots of information and quickly refunded my deposit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review you submitted. I am glad you enjoy the comforts of our rental home. The West side pool (the one near the house) is open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend and owned by us property owners. Sorry that the East side pool, which is open March to October, life guard did not let the kids into the hot tubs. That pool is maintained by Silver Leaf Timeshares and they have their rules. I will see if there is any way they will reconsider this rule. However, happy to hear you enjoyed many of the other activities and amenities that Holly Lake Ranch offers. Sincerely, Sandi
