"Best vacation ever. The owners of this house have the VRBO thing mastered. The owner could not have been more accommodating and pleasant to work with. I had a lot of questions and he didn't mind at all. I had my deposit back within days. They go above & beyond to make this house the best and most comfortable. All we had to do was get groceries, and they had a lot of the basics already there. LOCATION: It's close to banks, restaurants, the Bagnell Dam and strip, Walmart, HyVee...it's an awesome location. We spent an afternoon at Franky & Louie's and another at Jacob's Cave, we shopped on the strip and had ice cream, we had dinner at JJ Twiggs (REALLY great pizza) and Tucker's Shuckers. But most of the time, it was swimming and fishing off the dock. THE HOUSE: My mom is on oxygen and I was worried about the steps - but she did fine...they weren't bad at all. I was worried about the steep drive, but by day two-I didn't even blink. Des Moines doesn't have steep hills...so that was new for us. The kids had a blast and we thought we'd use the fire pit, but we were all so exhausted from playing in the water, we never did get a chance to, plus it was high 90's while we were there. Loved the Gazebo for shade, and the dock was awesome with plenty of floats- wish I'd waited to see what all they had before I went and bought new! The decks are amazing and it was so peaceful on the lake in the mornings- one of my favorite things about the trip- drinking my coffee on the deck, (There's a Starbucks close too). I want to go back and do it all again. If you love taking pictures - this is the place for you! And like one other review had said- the pictures on here do NOT do it justice.
I feel very lucky to have found this house when I was looking - we all had a wonderful time. I would HIGHLY recommend it."

"We stayed at this condo for a girls weekend during Labor Day and loved it. There was plenty of sleeping space. It was very clean and comfortable. It was in a great location with awesome access to the pool and the boat slips. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the water.
I would definitely stay here again, and plan on it. The owner was quick to respond to emails. Very nice."

"Our family traveled here for a family reunion. Condo was very clean, beds are comfortable, owners thought of everything to make your stay feel like home. View off the balcony is awesome. Complex pool is clean and there was plenty of seating. If you plan to have watercraft, coordinate the dock situation- but there are marina options available. Pool table was a hit for the older kids (grandparents included!). Grocery stores are less than 5 miles away, plenty of restaurants/bars along the lake. Bring your fishing pole, bathing suit and water craft - you'll be set!"

"We just held a family reunion at Palisades and used three different condos in the development. This condo had everything we needed for our stay and made the trip very relaxing and enjoyable. This particular unit is on the lower part of the hill and is the closest to the boat docks. We were able to use it as kind of a "home-base" for our family members going to and from the boat we rented so they could avoid going up and down the stairs to the higher units. The pools were perfect for the kids in our group! The owners were great to communicate with ahead of time and were quick to respond when we had questions during our stay. Highly recommend!"
