About joanie rizk

I am a registered nurse turned real estate broker for the last 32 years. I had 5 wonderful boys and my thought was that I could not take them on a more wonderful vacation than to go to Lake Okoboji. I bought this home in 1984 and enjoyed it for many years. 2 years ago it was entirely rebuilt, so everything is brand new. The boys have grown up and bring their families to the lakes now. It is a tremendous place to make many memories!

Why joanie rizk chose Iowa

I think if you looked all year you would not find a nicer, newer, or more state of the art home than this. It is large enough for the family. The function and design of the home is superior to most on the lake. It also offers an exquisite sandy beach and large front yard viewing the gorgeous blue waters of Okoboji. The low beach and yard are very hard to find. It is located right off of highway 9 which is so convenient to shopping, groceries, movies, etc.

What makes this house unique

I have traveled extensively and I have not seen many places like Lake Okoboji. I fell in love with this unique place because I can go out and have a 5 star dinner, or, sit in my swing and lazily read a book. The water activities are second to none, and I can go to the park and hear bands every weekend that are usually free. My home is extremely comfortable and has every convenience so I can relax entirely.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highly recommend! The home was sparkling clean and has every ammenity. The lake view is unbelievable and the beach is wonderful. Our group had room to spread out in the spacious rooms. The bedroom and bathroom situation is perfect. The outdoor bath/shower was so handy when we were outside. Already booked it again for next year!

Couldn't have asked for anything better!

Everything about this house and location were amazing. Our family (12 of us) went to celebrate our parents 60th wedding anniversary. The house is beautifully decorated and has the finest amenities. The open floor plan was great for us to all gather together. We also enjoyed the outside for yard games and sitting around the fire pit. The high end appliances left me in awe.

Joanie was great to work with. She checked in to make sure everything was as expected. We will definitely be going back.

Fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a memorable week! Our extended family vacation was spectacular. This home is everything Joanie said it would be and more. Spacious, well appointed and such a beautiful view. The kids spent most of the week in the lake and fishing off the dock. Okoboji is always a fun place and this home where we could all be together ( 16 of us) really made this summer vacation extra special. Owner Joanie is great to work with, always a quick informative response from initial inquiry through checkout. We will definitely be back!!!

Joanie's lake house was perfect for my family and extended family. It had enough bed for my nieces and nephews and their parents. The kitchen was beautiful and the view priceless. The neighbors were also very nice. We stayed for 3 weeks and will be coming back. The property is in a perfect location to fish boat lay out play games in the yard and enjoy all the lakes has to offer. We will be coming back!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

Joanie's fabulous lake home was more than we could have hoped for. We were right on the lake, but we really wanted to stay in the house because it was so beautiful! Amazing kitchen with every amenity you could imagine, huge comfy bedrooms with the finest bedding, lovely location on the north part of W Lake Okoboji. We were just thrilled! Joanie was a gracious hostess, always got back to us quickly, and we hope to go back next year.

Perfect for any large group

  • 5 of 5

Annual guys weekend getaway (12 yrs and counting). The pictures are great but the property is even better in person! Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and still enjoy the open main level entertaining areas. For someone that likes to make great meals...the gourmet kitchen was beyond any expectations. We also enjoyed listening to the outdoor speakers while playing yard games and relaxing on the patio!

Notes:
Lake Okoboji has a 'magic' to the area that one does not forget. The people are fantastic and come from all over the world. The Lake Okoboji 'hotspots' are easily found and absolutely incredible! If you are looking for a lake vacation, whether it be spring, summer, fall or winter, you will not find a more mesmerizing place. Each season has its own wonderful amenities and offerings. You can watch the ice slip off the lake in the spring, have full water activities in the summer, watch the leaves turn in the fall while lazily reading a book, or, join the winter groups for ice fishing, and cross-country skiing and then curling up in a warm cozy house! This is the kind of place where memories are made!
