We had a great week here! This was our 2nd time staying here and can't wait to come back next summer. The updated dock was wonderful.

Cute, cozy house with the best dock on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent four days and night at this house and would not only recommend it, but can't wait to return. It has everything you'd want from a property on Lake Santa Fe. That means lots of clear, sandy shoreline for wading or putting kayaks in the water, deeper water farther out the dock for swimming or larger boat access, great views from the house and yard and back porch, beautiful cypress trees with Spanish moss. The house has the charm of an older building, which it is, but is decorated in an eclectic and more contemporary way. It's comfortable and safe. Luis is a great owner to deal with and replies quickly to any question. And the dock is new, sturdy, well-designed for a variety of uses, and begs for you to stay there most of the time, day or night. Great spot.

Comfortable place with a gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home on Lake Santa Fe. the house was very clean. The master bedroom is very comfortable. All of the glass across the back of the house, including the master bedroom, gives you a great view of the lake. The outdoor area is perfect for all ages. There is a shallow water area for young kids, and the dock is amazing. We plan to stay here again.

Year # 3

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we have rented this property and as always it was clean and had plenty of room. We always have all our family visiting during this week and the kids love the lake. The fishing was good which is what the guys come for. It is also convenient to stores. Would recommend this lake house to anyone.
