About Catharina

Hi my name is Catharina. I am a 49 year old mother of 4 and happily married for 25 years. I started vacation renting about 9 years ago. I love the Hospitality field and especially enjoy meeting guests from all around the world.

Catharina purchased this house in 2011

Why Catharina chose Lake Norman

This property is perfect for families. The layout allows for various sleeping arrangements. This is ideal for multi-generations such as parents with small children that prefer to have their children close while still having privacy could sleep in connecting rooms or the many cousins who want to stay in a large bedroom together or the nightowls who can hangout at the pub and watch movies on the 108sq ft screen all night without disdurbing grandma and grandpa.

Positives outweigh the negatives but.....

  • 3 of 5

We were 12 middle aged women, enjoying 3 nights at the Lake house. Here are our impressions.

Positives: Enough beds to comfortably accommodate our group.

House was clean, as was the pool.

3 levels, so able to get away to a quiet area of the house, if you chose to do that.

Nice spot on the lake.

Negatives: Garbage disposal does not work.

Oven door drops to the floor

Lower level DVD player had no sound.

Soap dispenser in lower level broken .

Floor in lower level lifting

Glass chip on lower level, guest stepped on it.

Sliding doors to main level deck very difficult to open and close.

Cross bar on 1 kitchen stool broken off.

Toilet paper holder in master broken off the wall.

There were other minor issues, but these are the ones that stood out.

While I recognize that this is a rental property, the house needs a facelift, and many interior features need to be attended to. We still had a great time, and with some replacements, cosmetic touch ups and a handyman this house could be restored to its original beauty.

Wonderful Home

  • 4 of 5

The owner and the house manger were very attentive. The house was absolutely wonderful. We rented this home for a girls weekend for 18 and had a blast. The only issues I had with the home was the amount of bathrooms. The only mirrors in the house was in the bathrooms and getting 18 women out of 3 and 1 half bathrooms was a nightmare. I just recommend dressers with mirrors or free hanging ones. The light over the fish tank or the bar area did not work but we didn't bother to alert the owner. I would recommend this home for large groups and families it was great.

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful home on Lake Norman.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some great meals. We enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lake. The pool was refreshingly cool and pretty. We have a large family and there were plenty of comfortable beds for everyone. Thanks for a fun week!

Excellent location for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location for our family of 8 adults and 8 children!

Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. Spent time in the pool, water skiing, tubing, paddle boarding and fishing. So much to do for all ages. Close to stores and restaurants. Definitely would recommend this location!!!

So Disappointed!!!

  • 2 of 5

We have rented several homes in Lake Norman the past several years. For the price the property is extremely over priced and extremely under maintained. The new shower in the basement (if it is new) is in very very poor shape. The floor is ready to collapse. The sheets, blankets, pillows, towels and wash cloths should all be renewed. The main floor some of the furniture is broken, they really only have table seating for 11 people. They left us with 2 dish cloths and 2 dish towels. After you cook for 16 people breakfast, lunch and dinner you have to do laundry. The garage I'm sure has not been cleaned in a long long time. The upstairs bedroom furniture was in poor condition. The outside landscaping has not been taken care of. The outside deck area needed TLC. Terribly over priced. There are much nicer places for a lot less money.
