Quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

After spending several weeks in the traffic and noise of John's Creek, it was very restful to relax at Lake Lanier. Traveling with a puppy is not easy and this was the perfect spot for Schatzi. He enjoyed the covered porch and was able to take interesting walks. The owner is very solicitous of your needs and comfort. The experience was much like being at summer camp with access to the lake both from the property and from the nearby marina.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay for the week! Thanks, Gill! We live in Nevada and were looking to visit our son for a week (who lives in Buford) and looked at extended stay motels at first before finding this place! What a great find for the price! (We were actually 'upgraded' to a 2 bdrm at no extra charge) Loved everything about it! Highly recommend Gill and these properties! Enjoyed the condo, the lake, and Pelican Pete's Restaurant!

My Home Away from Home...

  • 5 of 5

When I took a new job in Georgia I had no idea how difficult it would be to find a furnished condo at an affordable price. I stayed at a hotel looking but found nothing until I came across the condos owned by Gill Mendes on Lake Lanier. As soon as I spoke to Gill I knew that I had found a "home away from home" and not soon later I was able to bring my family there as well. It was the perfect place for my wife, son and 2 dogs to stay while house hunting. Gill and our wonderful neighbors at the condo made our stay so enjoyable. Everything about this place tells you that they care and that customer service is #1 on their list. I would "HIGHLY" recommend staying here for either a long weekend or an extended stay like me and my Family. You won't regret it for a moment and please tell everyone at Unit A, Joseph and Susan say hi. .

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good words about the owner Gill Mende and his condos. I needed a fully furnished place to stay while I was between homes and his condo unit A-3 worked out perfectly! I was there for two months and loved it! I would highly recommend his units because of the beautiful setting, laid back atmosphere, fully equipped furnished units, and Gills wonderful, easy going professional personality. I consider myself lucky to come across him and his condos because not only did I find a great temporary place to live but I also gained a new friend.

Perfect place and location for a weekend getaway or extended stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife uses VRBO for our Spring Break trips and I took a chance with her using VRBO for my extended stay for work. BOY AM I GLAD I DID !!! She was able to find this place and it was PERFECT. I was here two months and Gill was very attentive to my wants and needs. The setting is beautiful. The view of the lake is spectacular. I could stay anywhere, but I will be back here when the time comes for me to return for work.

Great place on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely stay in one of Gil's condos again. He was great through the whole process, ensuring we had everything we needed. We stayed in A1 and had plenty of space to set up a pack and play while the sofa sleeper was pulled out. The location is great! We were there in the winter so we didn't get to enjoy the lake but the view was fantastic.

The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because of some quirks in the units layout. The neighbors were respectful but you could hear the upstairs tenant's radio and movement. The bedroom doesn't have a duct so the heat could only be directed to the bedroom and front room. Gil brought us an extra heater but the floors were so cold we used it in the front room to make sure the kids stayed warm, which resulted in the bedroom being chilly while the front room would get too warm.

I think the property would be great in the summer and will definitely stay again!
