About Kim Schwing

Hello, we are Steve and Kim Schwing of San Juan Capistrano, California. We have four grown children and two precious grand-daughters. We are Southern California natives who love to travel, entertain and spend time with loved ones.

Kim Schwing purchased this house in 2006

Why Kim Schwing chose Arizona

Our family has a passion for boating, water sports and off-roading. We are sure you will agree Lake Havasu is the most beautiful place to enjoy them all. We started camping here in the 1990's, fell in love with the area and decided to purchase a family vacation home that fit our family with teenagers and frequent guests in 2006. This home has 2 separate masters and 2 large family/great rooms. The space encourages togetherness while allowing everyone their own space. It has been the perfect back drop for large get-togethers (50th Anniversary Weekend/Family Reunion) and intimate gatherings (Couple Weekends) alike. We hope you & yours will love breath-taking Lake Havasu and The Gem as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

When you cross the threshold, you know it's havin' fun time! Whether that means chilling after a tough work week or entertaining some friends-Gemini is the place.

Favorite spots: Reading a book or surfing the net in the oversized chairs in the Game Room. Playing a game of pool/chipping on the putting green while listening to some IPOD tunes or relaxing & taking in the views with a cocktail and chips & salsa in the spa. Come visit and find your favorite spot!

We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

To start off I'd just like to say how amazing and professional the property manager is. She was so incredibly responsive and no-nonsense, and just generally all-around hassle free.

The Gem is big and perfect for partying. The amenities were great for 9 dudes, but we could have easily fit more and been just fine. The pool was great, the bbq was great, and the place looks fantastic. It's right down the street from Basha's which is super convenient too. The way the property is set up you have complete privacy on one side of the house, but it looks like they are building another property next to it, so I don't know if it will be completely private going forward or not, but it was nice being able to chill with your boys and not worry about keeping anybody up. Lastly, if you had to you could park 2 boats hooked up to trucks, and 2+ cars on the property if you parked one boat on the street so parking is awesome too.

This property plus the professionalism from Kim (the Property Manager) have made this easily the best place we've stayed at in Havasu. I highly recommend the gem for anyone who is looking for a nice friendly place to hang out with their friends and family.

Awesome home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was awesome. The home was amazing and had a great central location, making it easy to travel around town and to the water. The Schwings were great and easy to work with. Definitely recommend this vacation home and hope to be back myself sooner than later.
