Awesome week at the Lake!

  • 4 of 5

This house is much larger than it looks from the outside. There was plenty of space for our family of 7-9. I would have loved to have all 3 bedrooms with queen beds (made it uncomfortable for one couple with the 2 sets of bunk beds), but we made it work. The view is spectacular, the kitchen is very well equipped, plenty of bathrooms and we also loved the screened porch for anytime of day. The nice large eating table was great for family meals. The owner is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again. The only thing I didn't like was the overall cleanliness of the home upon arrival. I could write my name in dust on the living room tv or downstairs bar space area, and our bathroom mirror wasn't clean as the kitchen area needed attending to. I can't imagine being able to do a "deep clean" in between guests checking out and checking-in, but on weeks where there is no guests - this should be attended to. Again, not a big deal breaker for us - we just cleaned as we settled in. There is also a need for more towels (in both kitchen and bath), but again very minor overall. Thank you Dominic for a great stay at your beautiful lake home!!! Side note: If anyone needs a great pontoon boat rental - we went through Ship Shape rentals (John at 864-569-5016). They were so fantastic! Brought the boat right to our dock and then took it on our last rental day over to Lake Jocassee - which we just LOVED spending the day on that lake as well!

Breakfast With A View

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our overall stay at this fun lake home. The layout of the home was perfect for our family. We would have liked to use the community hot tub but it was closed for the season along with the pool. I would suggest that the owner does a deep clean between guests. I had to clean the shelves in the refrigerator before we could use it as well as remove hair from the shower. We had a difficult time using the DVD/VCR because of the abundance of wires and remotes that were available. We have rented several homes on VRBO in a variety of states and this is the first time that I had to make the beds as the linen was sitting on top of the bed. I was glad that I arrived prior to the rest of my family so I could get the house ready. We loved having our meals on the porch overlooking the lake as well as the hiking and close proximity to hiking. Also, we had to drive home with our trash because we couldn't find the dumpster that was on site. I think a welcome to the house book would be helpful to renters in the future.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house with some of our friends for a weekend getaway. It exceeded our expectations! It's very spacious and inviting and there were plenty of things to do at the house when we were not out on the lake. The owner was super nice and very accommodating. We can't wait to come back next year! Thanks Dominic!

Exceptional Home

  • 5 of 5

This is just a beautiful home. Our family stayed a week and everything was just as expected. Home was well equipped and clean. Very spacious, rooms are large. The screened porch with the ceiling fan was a hit for late evenings. Owner was easy to work with. Would highly recommend this home.

My husband and I had the best time at this lovely home! Most of our time was spent outside in the screened in porch. The ceiling fan made it perfectly comfortable. The view was spectacular looking down onto the water inlet while the rest of the house is surrounded with lush greenery. Evenings were blissful listening to the frogs and watching fireflies twinkle about. The home was well furnished and comfortable with plenty of kitchen utensils. It's well located too - close to Lake Jocassee, the base of the mountains, Clemson, Greenville. I wish we had more time to enjoy this special place. We'll be back!

Family Christmas 2012

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely appointed lake house with cozy fireplace. Three levels allowed our family to have plenty of room. With the pool table downstairs, several deck levels, and even a canoe to paddle the lake with the kids stayed entertained. Especially nice is the Master BR with sitting room, direct access to deck and a beautiful en suite with whirlpool tub and glass shower. Other 2 BRs are spacious and comfortable. We had local family over for Christmas Eve and they were duly impressed as well. Family room and large dining table afforded us lots of room. Natural area with wildlife galore (e.g., saw a woodpecker family up close from the upstairs deck) and beautiful lake views. Our 2 dogs loved being allowed to come along this time too. Didn't catch any fish but certainly caught plenty of fun! We've stayed in several VRBO homes and this is the one we'll most likely return to time and again. Highly recommend!
