Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Kelly,

We have returned after a wonderful trip where we stayed at the 9490 Lisa Circle property that you manage and I wanted to send you an email to thank you! You were instrumental in turning what could have been a disastrous weekend into a memorable one. After we learned that we had been scammed by another renter, our emotions were all over the place. Making calls at 430pm on a Thursday seemed like we would never be able to land a house for check in the following day. Working with you was quick and efficient, you were able to walk me through the few steps that we needed to get complete and I think we came up with a great deal for us both! The house was perfect for our group! The amount of bedrooms and how they were laid out on three different levels allowed everybody to have their own space while still congregating in the main living areas. Thank you again for being so flexible and coming up with a rate that helped us out in a time of need. I hope your owners know how important it is to fill gaps and how great of an asset you are to them in that regard. Working in this industry, I appreciate your hospitality!

This house is great for entertaining: the kitchen has all the tools for large scale cooking and along with our dining room, there is comfortable seating on the decks to take in the lake as well as an extra folding table and chairs for 8 for those larger parties. We have the piano for the artists out there and downstairs you can play pool, foosball, air hockey or ping pong before taking the one minute walk down the shallow stairs to the U-shaped dock (although you may want to take a break and enjoy the view on either of the porch swings along the way.) We also have some baby toys, a stroller and a highchair to make your packing easier. The decks are huge (~48' x 12') and the lower deck is protected from rain and sun.

We had a ball. Most memorable Thanksgiving to date.

  • 4 of 5

We all took advantage of the roomy floorplan, game room to piano room, to the levels of decking outside. All great fun. We would do this again.

Please direct your attention to the stairs and decking. All levels wobble and have very loose sections, a bit unstable. Please have this secured.

Andy, thanks for having us. We appreciate it.

The house was nice area was nice the faculty was nice but management, I was very dissatisfied!

  • 4 of 5

Reason for my dissatisfaction of management, was over the central a/c settings of the house. It is in the contract which I admit not having noticed stipulation that a/c was not to be lower than 74 degrees, we had it lower than 74 degrees due to outside temperature, preparing meals in afternoon and going in and out. Once management notified us of the contract stipulation, the management would raise the thermostat setting during the day by an online system while we were there. Apparently we were accused that there was water damage on the bottom level flooring which management attributed to our a/c usage. We paid for repairs from our deposit.

Therefore, it was unrealistic with the 74 degrees setting the first week of August in the southeastern part of the U. S.

Would never rent or lease from this management again.

Owner's Response: Hello Noreen, Thank you for your stay. Regarding the AC issue that you bring up. As we discussed and documented with pictures and a repair person's $58.00 bill, your misuse of the AC system caused a flood that required the replacement of a few of the lower floor's tiles. As you indicated in your note, we notified you early in your stay that the AC temperatures were way below the stipulated in the rental agreement and told you that you would be held responsible for any resulting damages. At the time, you told us that you knew about AC management and that you would assume the risk. The AC system in the home is new - installed just last year. Our contract stiplulates that the minimum setting should be 73 degrees. That is well below the minimum setting recommended by government and other agencies. Withstanding, we typically don't have an issue with guest lowering the temperature lower. That said, as you were notified, having the temperature set at the lower 60s, keeping doors an windows open, and doing this in 100 degree weather is not a good idea. Sincerely, Andy

Wonderful place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home. The many bedrooms allowed for our married children to join us as well as my parents. We had 11 staying at various parts of the week. Because the house is only an hour or so from Atlanta, it made for an easy retreat, without the many hours on the road that it would have taken to get to an ocean/beach. The lake is lovely and pretty peaceful here. We spent hours swimming off the dock. Most restaurants are about 20 minutes drive away, but the kitchen is well equipped for cooking and there is a Publix nearby. We especially appreciated the second coffee maker. We loved the pool table and ping pong as well as the many board games in the closets and cupboards. The lot is very steep, but the steps down to the dock make the trek very manageable. There were many good trees for hanging ENO hammocks. There is lovely original artwork throughout the home as well as shelves and shelves of interesting books. These extra touches made it feel very homey and welcoming. We would highly recommend this home for family vacations.

The views were spectacular!!!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. The home is very large and comfortably accommodated all 7 of us with room for extra people. The view from the upper deck was fabulous and the deck comfortably accommodated our group and guests.

Andy graciously provided a propane tank which we did not realize was not included for the grill.

The only issue we observed is that some of the rugs could cause a tripping hazard. When we moved them we found quite a bit of dirt and sand. Some of the rugs were in need of cleaning. Could you also provide additional dishwasher soap and garbage bags?

Beware of the driveway. It is very steep and a bit intimidating. (This is typical of many properties on the lake).

It was the perfect setting for our sons high school graduation celebration. Would recommend this property for any large group gathering!!!

Lake Lanier has been the playground to the Metro-Atlanta area for years & this location, only 7 miles off of exit 17 of GA 400, is ideal. Although you are about 30 minutes from the best shopping, restaurants, services, and entertainment, the last few miles will feel like a country drive through hills and valleys, past old churches and barns as you catch glimpses of the lake. Your spot on the lake is so close to big water and yet sheltered on a calm inlet. The area marinas offer boat and jet ski rentals, there is a public boat ramp a mile from the house, and a small beach is across the inlet from your dock. You will be at the doorway of the North GA Mountains which means nature's beauty is a short drive away. If you need to get to the city your drive will be less than an hour. Our neighborhood is quiet and peaceful so it is not well suited to night time parties. On all other counts, our Lake Lanier Retreat truly offers the best of both worlds.
