About Diana Ramirez

I have had the opportunity to travel and have lived in 18 different locations. I have always considered myself a 'city girl', but, now I'm getting the chance to experience country life and finding I like it. I do not own multiple units, just this one. If you like what you see ... come experience it for yourself.

Love the seclusion and the neighborhood and being near the lake! My family lives on the property in a separate house.

What makes this apartment unique

It has gated, secured access - so you should feel safe. Th cabin is called the LAKE TAWAKONI TREE HOUSE because it is elevated (on 2nd floor) and is surrounded by trees. The decor is rustic, complete with a wall paneled in reclaimed wood and a wood burning stove. You'll feel as if you stepped back in time. A 600 square foot deck provides plenty of room for relaxing.

The lakehouse was as described- plenty of room for 5 people

  • 4 of 5

All provided amenities made for an easy stay for my 13 yr old and her friends to have a great time. Water level was low so we had to go to the State Park to swim- nice beach area. The paddle boat was a plus for kids and fishing for adults. Overall we had a great time and will come back.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Had a father son lake weekend. The house is nice and the deck is really big. Kids had a great time running around the property and riding in the paddle boat. Several nice sitting/picnic areas by the water, in the trees and on the deck. Fire pit area would be fun in the winter.

Great for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this stay tremendously! We have 4 kids, age 9, 8, 5, and 21 months. They all enjoyed it! The older 3 loved the kayaks and paddleboat! The youngest most enjoyed the pool on the back porch and playing with marbles from a board game inside! :-) The charcoal grill was fantastic! The house was refreshingly cool coming in from the hot days. We all slept great, with plenty of space to spread out. The kids slept on a couch and the two futon/full size beds. The room in the bedroom was very comfortable. It was extremely convenient to have a washer/dryer in the house with kids! Next time, we'll come when it's a bit cooler. Mid-June is warm, but we know that. The hosts were so kind and readily available to help on-site! Highly recommend this VRBO!

Quiet, clean and comfortable getaway!! Super wonderful hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Tree House for 5 nights, 4 of them on my own, and one with my husband. The purpose of the getaway was to relax and get rejuvenated from a recently chaotic schedule and life circumstances. The Tree House fit the bill perfectly!! The whole cabin was very clean, comfortable, cozy, and quiet, and I simply loved it! I felt very much at home there right away. Diana and John were superb hosts and were just as kind as they could be. They included us in their lives and made us feel so very welcome. I really enjoyed visiting with them and talking to them, even getting a golf cart tour of the neighborhood from Johnny. Thank you -- that was very fun and enjoyable! The Tree House comes well-equipped with so many amenities and thoughtful items, and everything I needed to make my stay super comfortable was at my fingertips. Cooking in the well-equipped kitchen was easy, fun, and relaxing. All was clean and well-appointed, and I appreciated all the extras, such as ice in the freezer and some spices in the pantry. The weather was gorgeous, the scenery and surroundings lovely, and all was wonderful. I greatly enjoyed my walks around the quiet and picturesque neighborhood, along with time spent down by the lake, reading, journaling, watching wildlife, and relaxing, as well as time out in the yard. It was so nice as well to be able to relax inside the comfortable cabin, reading, watching movies, doing paperwork, cooking, and catching up with friends on the phone, among other things. I highly recommend this rental for anyone who needs to get away for a few days to a quiet, beautiful, private, and wonderful stay in the country. I hope to come back again very soon!! Thank you so very much for your stellar hospitality, Diana and Johnny. Take good care of yourselves!

Our family had such an amazing time!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun out by the lake. Paddle boating and fishing. Kids enjoyed the kayaks and passing the football back and forth. BBQ on the deck and smoores by the fire. Felt very cozy and at home. It was an amazing experience over all. Specially getting caught in the rain out on the lake. We loved watching the lightning and hearing the thunder :) john and Diana are very delightful and made us feel very welcome. I definitely recommend this lovely cozy place. Looking forward to our next visit! Thank you for everything.. God bless
