About Diana Ramirez

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

This property sits on 5 acres. It is the only Vacation Rental we operate. It is in a quiet, secluded neighborhood, so, you will not encounter other families enjoying their vacations on the property. 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.

You will feel right at home

  • 5 of 5

The host and hostess are amazing as is the place you are staying. You will feel secure as the drive has a coded gate. Don't have to worry about things in your vehicle. The tree house has a great interior. Everything is clean and ready for your stay. No wifi allowed us to unplug and enjoy our trip. They have directtv and a lot of movies to enjoy with the family. A lot of games and even kayaks are provided if you wish to use them. The grill and fire pit are great accessories. Being right next to the water allowed me to get some fishing in. My family and I will defiantly be back in the future. Thanks for an awesome experience, looking forward to returning.

Nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a short weekend with our two dogs. They had a nice big yard so our dogs could wear themselves out and we had a nice time sitting on the chairs by the lake and throwing a line in here and there. Definitely see it as a great place to bring the family as they had a lot of games, a huge area, and opportunities to swim in warmer weather. Inside of the rental was very nice, too.
