  • ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

    "My family & I were in need of a vacation and we are so happy that we found Gary & Janet's 1bedroom condo!! My children & I fished EVERYDAY for 7 days either right from our balcony or when we went down to the pier. And when we weren't fishing, the atmosphere of the condo was so great that we slept most of the time that we were inside. The photos are good but when we got there, WOW!! Gary and Janet are some wonderful hosts and even brought us an iron and ironing board when we needed it. I recommend anyone to check into these condos. Just beware that we are coming back and you can't have our week!!!"

  • Happy New Year and Birthday outing

    "We rang in the new year at the best view on Rayburn. 4 couples and 1 granddaughter. The house had plenty of room for all. With cold wet weather we had a great time playing pool, card games, and watching playoff games. Great facility. The owner was very friendly and quickly answered our questions before we arrived. I highly recommend this house for all family gatherings or just a quiet time with someone special. House comes with many games also. We will do this again."

  • nice place

    "Well, at first sight it wasn't quite what we expected from the pictures which made me a little sick. But once you walk inside and give it a chance to settle in on you, its a great place for a family get together. Plenty of room, nice and clean. The lake access isnt bad if you have a boat but dont expect somewhere to swim. Its also very close to the highway which also isnt mentioned - to the point you can see/hear the cars go by through the trees. The neighborhood isnt the nicest either. Its still a nice place, just maybe a little overpriced when you consider the entire package. The neighbors have no problem driving through the yard or parking their boats in your way so you have to get your feet wet leaving your boat to go up to the house - which isnt the renter's fault, but still it happens."
