And don’t forget about the step down bar - with its own mini fridge and Margaritaville blender, you can mix up your own special cocktails to keep the evening going!

If the sun is still calling, head outside to our decadent outdoor living space. Lounge by the pool for some much needed sunbathing and then take a dip to cool off, and don’t forget about the lake - the docks connected to our outdoor living space! When the sun finally sets, enjoy a fireside drink with friends and family or relax yourself in the outdoor spa; the perfect way to end your day.

Kitchen & Dining:

Our home makes for easy meals with chef-ready stainless steel appliances throughout! A double oven, gas stove, fridge and microwave keep you and yours well fed while the dishwasher makes for an easy cleanup.

Take your meals at our homes dining table or enjoy your meal alfresco in the outdoor living area with fireside comfort. And don’t worry, if grilling is more your style, you’ll be sure to enjoy our Weber gas BBQ thats just outside.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely stunning. Everything you could ask for in a vacation home. The house was very clean and the private pool/spa was such a great feature to have. The view was amazing. Overall our stay was perfect. We cannot wait to come back and stay at this beautiful property soon. The Owner Mike was so accommodating and answered any questions we had almost immediately. I'd give this property 10 stars if I could!

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I had a wonderful stay here. The location is amazing. We loved spending time in the backyard - in the pool, enjoying the view, fishing off the dock, soaking up the sun, etc. We had two young girls and an infant in our group and they loved the pool (pool toys were a bonus). The view is amazing, but it is also located super close to the freeway, which was great for traveling for sight seeing, golf, outlet shopping, etc. It is also located a short drive away from the casino, which was great for family dining and nighttime entertainment. The fire pit was great in the evenings. Michael was speedy responding to any questions we had and we can't think of anything that the place was lacking. We will definitely be back!

Truly a gem

  • 5 of 5

The first thing to say is "amazing". The pictures on the website looked great but still do not do the property justice.

The few minor questions that we had Mike answered without delay, and Ronaldo did a brilliant job of sorting the couple of tiny issues that arose.

The house was immaculately clean when we arrived, with some basic supplies in the cupboards to keep us going until we were able to grocery shop - which was no problem with there being massive stores only a few minutes drive away.

The house is very comfortable, in a quiet location and with beautiful scenery.

Eating out is easy too, no matter what your budget. There is everything from fast food to steakhouse to al a carte virtually on the doorstep.

As two couples renting this property we had plenty of space and privacy to relax. The facilities provided are excellent, and added to the daily enjoyment of our stay. We are defiantly going to re-book this property again as a home from home is what it felt like.

A massive thank you to Mike for allowing us to rent out his beautiful house.

Quiet Retreat - Amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely relaxing and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet week away with pool time and glasses of wine watching the sunset. The house itself was excellent and had everything we could need and more.

Calming desert retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute of our stay here. The view and serenity were the highlights. The kitchen is beautiful, we were able to prepare good meals with aid of the natural gas Weber BBQ, which was so appreciated. We especially loved soaking in the hot tub in the evenings overlooking the lake and looking up at the stars. We would definitely recommend this property to all our friends!

Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 31st birthday this past winter with a few friends/family. We all had such an amazing time. The house had everything we needed from a pool to kayaking on the lake =). The house was spacious and the colors were so vibrant and fun. Also, the owner of the home Mike was great to work with he was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this home and will be back for more fun!!!!
