Perfect family getaway house!
Perfect family getaway house!
We were greeted by the homeowner Bob with a bucket full of ice with beers and waters. A perfect way to start our week of family fun. Our group hovered between four in number and topped out at 10 over the week-end. We enjoyed every amenity the house offered except the Sauna, due the tremendous hot weather. We easily got by the shore-hugging algae using the kayaks (provided) and a rental boat for tubing and swimming in the center of the lake. The house was very clean and furnished comfortably. Bob, gave us all the privacy renters could want, yet was immediately available for any requests we had. We'll be back!

15 people and 4 dogs had a great time!
15 people and 4 dogs had a great time!
A group of us stayed here for the weekend. the House is amazing, all kinds of great spots to play and relax. There were 15 of us and 4 dogs and we never felt cramped. The ammenities are perfect and the view of the lake is really beautiful. The family who owns and rents this space is really nice and easy to work with. They were flexible about last minute changes in plans and friendly the whole way through. They even gave us a chance to change dates last minute when they found out the lake was high in algea. I give the space a 5 stars and sadly clear lake itself was a 4 stars for us, but only because of algea issues.

Fantastic Clear Lake location for a big group
Fantastic Clear Lake location for a big group
We had 22 people and occupied the main house and all 4 cabins. Every part of the property was spotless, the amenities in the yard exceeded our expectations, and the view is incredible. Everyone in our motorcycle touring group was thrilled with the property and we will definitely stay again. The owner came by on Saturday to make sure we were happy (we were). The location is convenient to stores, case stations, and a great restaurant is a 2 minute walk. The downsides? The house is dated (but very clean), the Clear Lake neighborhood its in isn't Beverly Hills, and the 3 downstairs bedrooms in the main house are only semi private. The last point is important if you have a group. None of these detracted from the great time we had. There are plenty of places that subsets of a big group can hang out and "do their own thing." Overall, I would recommend this property for anyone with a big group.

What a great week! There were three generations: five adults, five teens, twin 6-year-old boys, and two dogs. Being able to close the gate to keep little guys and their dogs contained was a real plus. Everyone loved the easy water access. The splash pad, spa, pool table, barbecue and fire pit were big hits! Sunset viewing from the upper deck was beautiful. And we can't forget the 15-pound catfish caught using anchovies at 2:00 am. We were able to spread out all over the place so there was plenty of elbow room. Tristan was a gem - always available to help us. Thank you so much!

No Sun:( Wonderful Time:)
No Sun:( Wonderful Time:)
We came out on a cloudy, rainy, weekend in June. Despite the lack of sun we had a great time! There were enough breaks in the rain for everyone to get out on the lake in the kayaks which was breathtaking. I thought the description and photos were completely accurate. The property was beautifully kept and it was fabulous fun to give friends tours of the place as they arrived. We absolutely loved the very homey, comfortable feel of the place. Terry, Bob and Tristan- the owners and staff were so sweet and helpful. Tori brought over homemade gourmet griddlecakes and a bag of homemade granola with a sweet apologetic note (apologizing for the weather- as if it was their fault:) Our whole group really had a wonderful time. Thank you all so much for everything. We are sure to come back and will most definitely be recommending Vista Del Lago as a great vacation getaway to all of our friends!

What an incredible weekend!
I can't say enough about our stay at Vita Del Lago, "we had a great time" with friends and family. The resort offers many things to do and Clear Lake is absolutely beautiful. We explored the lake and surrounding areas and found really cool shops. The staff is very accommodating and made us feel like we were really on vacation. We are already planning a return... Everything was Perfect, Thanks

Thanks Bob and Tori for a great time. So glad you liked the puri. Really appreciated the service of our every need by your assistant Tristan. We did not expect to have someone available who chopped wood for our campfire and hunt down a flour sifter too! It was like having a private concierge service. The home was clean and well stocked even by my picky standards. Great sense of privacy and convenience all in one place. We will highly recommend you to friends and family.

We are frequent renters of vacation homes. This was a great one! Although it is within walking distance to shops and restaurants it is tucked away from the the traffic and has a large fenced private area by the water. The outside fire pit area at the water's edge and the upper deck viewing brings the lake life up close. The inside of the house has numerous private and public places. So finding a corner to read or take a nap was not a problem and the facilities were clean and well maintained. The house had every ammenity we needed for both indoor and outdoor cooking. I suggested a larger gas grill for bigger groups and the onsite grounds keeper said it was in the plans. Others in our group liked it too because it felt like home after our first meal. I can highly recommend it. If it would have had a swimming pool I would give it 5 stars, but next to the lake that is not as important.

We had a blast. I noticed someone said comwebs???!!! Where? The owners had a fiire going the minute the sun set. The home was so cozy and rustic. So classic and felt like a true lake house. I noticed the kitchen and bathrooms were very clean. Thank you for a great winter stay.

Would NOT recommend!
Would NOT recommend!
Unfortunately, the environment smelled awful due to the algae (out of owners' control). However, the house itself needed LOTS of cleaning. The bedrooms downstairs were FULL of cobwebs and spiders. I could not sleep because spiders were all over the ceiling! The rooms were not aired out and smelled quite a bit musty. The pool was quite dirty. We lost power for a few hours during our first night - caretaker could not find the fuse box and it was boiling HOT inside. We asked for a partial refund - no response from the owners. We did enjoy being on the balcony though. I can't remember when we stayed

Owner response: We are disheartened to hear of the guests disappointments over their summer stay. We are sorry for the delay in the power interruption as our 24 hr. maintenance superintendent initally had problems instituting the back up circuit box. We take great pride in the condition of the property and a thorough cleaning inside and out of the property occurs after every stay. We would have been glad to compensate the guests for the problems incurred as our property thrives on repeat business. But this is the first correspondence we're aware of since their stay. We appreciate the feedback and will continue to strive to exceed our guests future expectations. If we are ever given the opportunity to make up for their inconveniences we would be thrilled to do so. Stay tuned for exciting new improvements that are currently under way. Bob & Tori

Why the Owner Chose Clearlake:
We have lived in this home and raised our children here. We have never grown tired of life by the lake. The personality of the lake is constantly changing. Whether the wind is blowing hard and the rain pouring or the sun shining and hot... there is never a time when it is not a beautiful place to live.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a thought provoking serene place, even within the city, escape is close at hand by just relaxing with a friend or family member or enjoying the stars at night and Venus competing with the night sky over Mt. Konocti.
