  • Things of note

    "We spent a week at this well appointed condo in Okoboji. For the most part we were satisfied and happy. Just a few things to note for the traveler. Okoboji goes "off season" after Labor Day. This meant that the resort's "fabulous" lakefront restaurant and "year round" entertainment that are sold as amenities to be enjoyed with the condo have some caveats. No restaurant and the water park was only open Fri. 4-10, Sat. 9-10 and Sun. 9-5. Its too bad because the water park was great! Also note that we were contacted by the condo owner early in our stay with a complaint from a neighbor about what sounded like children running in the building. It was pretty obvious we were the only family with children in the building. She was nice about it and everything but this made us feel a bit on edge our entire visit trying to keep our young boys quiet (which has an exercise in futility). This is why it's important, in my estimation, that "family friendly" descriptions be accurate. So if you have small children I don't know if I would necessarily recommend the condos, you might want to look into a free-standing cabin on the resort property. The location was close to the main strip and thus really convenient. With regard to the unit . . . Preference comments: fire place is hot air not gas or wood (ie, no real flame). If you're a connoisseur of beds/bedding (and I am) you'll find average quality here. Shower in Master is lacking in caddies and space/ledges to hold products, shave legs and such. +'s: Lots of space/light, direct door from master to deck, nice view, beautiful cabinets/wood, great puzzle drawer, sirius radio on flat screen, real candles. Maintenance comments: Dishwasher kept running until we had to manually shut off, ice dispenser in the fridge readily clogs and spills ice everywhere every time its used. We utilized a chair from the deck to replace the a broken one from the dining set that was placed in the laundry room. These are all first world problems for sure, but when you're paying first world prices, maintenance issues aren't something you should have to work around. Happy traveling!"

  • What a view

    "This was a great place to stay. From the beginning until the end of our stay it was very easy to communicate with the owner. The house was in a very quiet are, which is exactly what we were looking for. The view is stunning and better than described. The house was clean and very well equipped. It felt like we were at home and I would definitely stay there again if we go to the area."

  • Perfect event location

    "The family that owns this house that sleeps 10-12 had another house just around the corner that sleeps 16. So that's the Victorian that we stayed in. It was large and spacious and had perfect time period decorations and furniture. Every room had a bathroom. There was a huge table to seat our guests at and two seating areas, one with a tv and cable. Unfortunately, since it was so miserably cold, the heat didn't actually warm the house until the second day, but the owners had space heaters brought in. The house was not the cleanest, but it was definitely not dirty. With an old house it's hard to keep everything dusted. But, one would think with a large cleaning fee, that it would be spotless. The backyard view was lovely, looking down on the Mississippi River and bridge. The original house that is listed is just as beautiful, but more updated and decorated. If you're looking to house a lot of people, then these two houses are recommended."
