Big house, nice beach and dock area

  • 4 of 5

Great house for large family. 8 adults and 8 kids ranging from 1 to 70. House is large enough that everyone has space to sleep and spread out or be together. Kitchen is well equipped and the yard is big. Nice beach area, great 15 foot platform for diving or jumping into deep water. Gradual Sandy Beach good for small children. Covered deck for shade and nice swing under a shade tree. The two kayaks were used everyday. The game room was a big hit with the kids young and old. Beautiful sunsets and view of the lake. Amy was really good about responding to our requests. Many memories were made and we had a very fun relaxing time.

Awesome Property For All Ages

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have rented this house for our annual family vacation. Everyone in the family from ages 6 months to 84 had a great time and found the property to meet all of their needs. It is very clean and a great setup for multiple generations. The beach is perfect for the kids and the dock was enjoyed by all. It really has everything one could need for a week on the lake both inside and out. We are already looking to book for next year.

We have come here 3 years now and it's like coming home. The place is always spotlessly clean! it's spacious enough for 10 people to spread out and do their own things, and large common areas to all come together when desired. The kitchen is amazing and spacious for everyone to cook in without bumping into each other. Plenty of cooking utensils, plates & serving needs. Games, puzzles, videos and gaming system choices are like visiting a library. The dock has a picnic table under a roofed section as well as diving board and hammock...and the kids LOVE jumping from the upper level to the lake below. For young children the sandy beach area is perfect for them to play in near the lake, and can gradually walk into the lake if they wish like a wading pool.

The attention to detail is amazing- from written directions everywhere- pictures inside cabinets on where kitchen pans/dishes go, maps of the lake, information on the community and even a Food Lion (grocery store) discount card is made available to guests.

I could go on and on. I feel very lucky to come here every June and spend a lot of time dreaming of coming again in September.

This has got to be one of the most stocked homes I have had the pleasure of renting.

Kitchen: Most importantly - their knives are ACTUALLY SHARP and can CUT without you having to hack away at your food. I've always had an issue at rentals with this and normally bring my own knife (which I have sadly left behind before) but not here!!! Also stocked kitchen with lots of bowls, knives, plates, cups, big bowls for marinating. Love the duel oven option as well though we pretty much grilled everything and didn't need to use it but definitely good to know for the future. 2 fridges to stock all your food for a long weekend (and for 20 people).

Rooms: Enough rooms for privacy for most everyone. The master bedrooms are huge!

Entertainment: Games galore in the basement with FLASHBACK From the PAST for my 80's babies with the original NES system & Lots of games! I definitely played a few games and relived my childhood. Also had a bunch of other game consoles. Pool table, air hockey, ping pong table, volleyball net, and so much more.

Dock, etc.: Best dock in the area of homes - had a swing, table, mini sand beach perfect for the kiddies (we had a 3 yr old with us who absolutely loved getting in the water from there), a hammock, diving board. Oh and 2 canoes for your to use as well! Just perfect.

AMY: Very responsive and very accommodating. I think I had the most questions for her than other homeowners in the past since I had such a large group and she was very kind and just amazing.

OVERALL - just an amazing beautiful home. The open layout of the kitchen is awesome so that the cooks aren't confined & left out. Easy access to all the information you need right in the family room coffee table. Just very well thought-out rental. I have rented a lot of properties and this has got to be one of the best overall. Everyone in our group of 20 LOVED the home. Really was wonderful and definitely will be booking this place again. <3 Thanks for everything Amy!

Beautiful house - with lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a family weekend in this beautiful home. Amy was great and answered my many questions. There were games galore that my family enjoyed. The pool table, air hockey, ping pong table and so many different gaming systems had every one entertained. Thank you so much Amy! Highly recommend this beautiful home right on the lake with a beautiful view!

Overall good

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a great time in the house. Here are some pros and cons

Pros: House was equipped with so many entertainment and space it allowed our group to really bond. All rooms were spacious enough for each family who paid the same amount so they felt like that got their share of the house. The view was beautiful although we thought we would have a large view of Lake Anna. Still, a beautiful site in the morning. There were windows everywhere. Hot tub and fire pit were great additions to the house. Boat area/swings were entertaining for all ages!

Cons: Small oven had so much food residue from previous use that we couldn't use it. It would burn every time we turned it on. Utensils, pots/pans were overused. However, we were still able to make delicious meals =). There were no dishwasher detergent so one of us had to make a grocery trip out. The checkout list was burdensome- all of us was extra cautious and caused unnecessary stress that our security deposit would be taken away. We have stayed at other Homeaway homes and never seen such a list.

Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Anna. Thank you for the feedback. The cleaners were not clear on your comment about the 'small' oven (toaster oven?) They saw no issues with any of the ovens and reported them all clean and in working order. Two skillets and a cook pot are being added to the kitchenware but I try not to throw out older items unless they are unusable. There are some large groups that come in that make some equally large meals, so I figure some extra cookware may be welcomed, even if it is not brand new. Kitchen utensils appear to be in good shape and adequate. My apologies for the absence of the dishwasher pods - this was an oversight. I really wish you had not stressed over the checkout list. I try hard not to withhold any deposit unless there is abuse or neglect. The items on the checkout list are minor and many are intended as 'reminders' as guests may not realize the consequences of not doing so (like lowering umbrellas and latching the hot tub cover if you used them, so they don't blow away). I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and welcome you and your party back in the future! Amy
