Jodi has one really great place here. Im mean this condo was spotless. Anything you need is probably provided in some cabinet somewhere. We didnt want for a thing. Even the internet hookup was good and free.. Extremely comfortable and the sunsets on the porch were incredible. Morning coffee out there was great too. Jodi is a really nice guy to talk to and get all the info you need. The rental transaction went off very smoothly and without one single hickup. The only problem we had was the week went by too fast. Cant wait to get back there next year.

I highly recommend this little condo. The owner, Jodi, is very attentive & gave us all the pertinent information we needed to have a wonderful time at the lake. There is a great boat slip very close to the condo that you can rent at a small fee per day. The condo was CLEAN--very important to me! Also, everything you need to cook is available as well. There is plenty of linens available, all of the little necessities are also provided such as coffee filters & toilet paper. We ran into the cleaning person one day and she took the time to ask us if we had everything we needed. The view is beautiful. The pool is very nice as well. We loved staying at this condo.

The view is absolutely incredible, worth every penny! The view changes every hour, day and night. We only stayed for 3 nights, but had a fantastic time. Jodi makes the whole process very easy! The condo was wonderfully decorated in a lighthouse/beach theme and was perfect for a family of 3. We also caught 4 catfish right off of the docks and grilled them right up next to the pool. The people in the community were really nice as well; we actually made quite a few friends from our short stay. I definitely recommend staying here. Thank you Jodi!

Love this place!!
Love this place!!
My family and I stayed in this condo for a total of 11 days. The owner was very easy to work with and the whole reservation process was a breeze. Once we arrived we were stunned by the amazing views and the cute, clean, and well stocked condo. There was plenty of room even with three adults, a baby, and all of her gear. This is a beautiful spot and the condo is so well equipped that it would be easy to stay for an extended stay (not to mention the pricing was much better than most hotels in the area!). We will be using this in the future I'm sure. Thank you so much for everything. We had a fantastic vacation!

The pictures were about the best thing concerning this rental. From the moment we opened the door and there was the bed, I wondered. The owner had done work in the kitchen and it was nice, for what he could do. But it was like putting lipstick on a pig. The unit had had no real attention for quite a while. Every seam in the wallpaper in the bathroom was coming open, paint had not been touched for a long time. A plexiglass sheet covering the coffee table was too big and loose, resulting a nice cut behind a knee. The screen on the slider was broken and hard to use. But the pictures were nice.

Owner response: I am really confused that the tenant did not express to me or my wife that they were dis-satisfied with my condo, and by the way, THEY DID STAY THE ENTIRE WEEK. If they would have express dis-satisfaction, I would have done what ever I could to make their stay comfortable. The screen door is something I could have had a handy man do the same day, I will address that immediately. The wall paper has some seams that are coming apart, I will address that issue as well, but I do not believe that would make your stay at my condo uncomfortable. As far as the painting is concerned, the unit was painted last year and it is a rental unit, so, some times you have a mark or two on the walls, but certainly would not make your stay uncomfortable. As far as attention to the unit, We have had many repeat tenants who find the accommodations very comfortable as per the many positive reviews listed on my web site. The plexi-glass on the coffee table is loose, that is news to me, I will do what is necessary to make the coffee table safe. I have rented the unit for 8 years and my goal is to make all my tenants have a happy, comfortable and great vacation at the lake, so if you do have a problem, tell me and I will do everything I can to make your stay a memorable one, like so many in the past have. Thank you, Jodi and Phina
Just got back for a one week stay. Awesome! One of the best vacations the family has had! Accomodations were everything Jodi says. Brought the boat and getting up every morning at 6am stepping in the boat to go fishing was fantastic! It was priceless to see my 7 year old fishing top water lures and hauling in the large mouths! The stripers eluded us so will be planning another trip late fall perhaps. Friendly neighbors and other guests. Thanks Jodi. Brad, Liz, Aidan, and friend Deshaun.

We want to thank Jodi for the incredible time we had at SML. The condo was spotless and perfect for our family of three. Spectacular views and great boat dock location. Close to all amenities by car or boat. We really enjoyed it. We'll be back. thanks again.

Awesome spot for the week!
Awesome spot for the week!
My husband and myself just got back yesterday from staying here for the week! This condo is a perfect getaway; definitely planning on returning again next year. The weather was great! Enjoyed the view from the balcony. My husband brought our boat down and the slip that comes with this condo is one right on the end which makes it perfect for docking overnight; really liked that there was security on the weekends. Very safe area and it was very convient to not have to take the boat in and out of the water. There is also 7 day trailer parking available. We really enjoyed being in Striper's Landing, all the owners were very helpful and friendly. The pool was great! Only a 15 minute boat ride from Bridgewater Plaza. I would suggest staying on this end to the lake, not a lot of boat traffic so it's calmer; especially for the fisherman. My husband found a few good spots for bass around this area. I would definitely recommend this to a couple for a nice getaway! Smith Mountain Lake is gorgeous and we will definitely be returning. Really enjoyed going to the Community Park Beach only a few miles down the road. Thanks again Jodi, we really enjoyed it!! The last 3 days we didn't even drive, we ventured out by boat for dinner, etc. which was amazing!!

Awesome place to go!!
Awesome place to go!!
My wife and I went to SML a few weeks ago. If you want a great place to go please call Jodi. Very nice guy with a beautiful place and VERY reasonable rates considering what you get. THe lake is great as well as everything that surrounds it. I caught bass from the dock right in front of the condo as well as off the boat that we rented. I would give this place a 5-STAR rating over and over again. There are too many places that are over priced and you just dont feel you got what you paid for. NOT HERE! Thanks again Jodi....it was the long weekend we wanted and needed....and worth every penny!!!!!

My husband and I stayed for a week in November, the weather was great, the condo was clean and very comfortable. The sunset views were breath taking. Great restaurants just minutes away by boat or land. The Mexican restaurant and bar was so cool and so close we were there 3 or more times for lunch and dinner. The condo has free Internet access, what a convenience to plug in your lap top and answer emails. 2 TV’S one in the bedroom and a nice size flat screen in the living room and a real nice cable package to watch all are favorite shows. This is a great getaway any time of year and I would definitely rent this again, maybe in the summer to enjoy the pool, which looks really nice. Thank you Jodi and Phina.
