About Kathleen and Dennis Krentz

Dennis took a break from building our second home across the street to renovate Clearlake Keys House, turning it into a place where we would enjoy staying. An avid angler, Dennis enjoys fishing the lake and the keys, and brings in the limit of crappie and catfish, as well as a few bass. Kathleen enjoys the break from her consulting practice to kayak the lake in the morning and to have a glass of award-winning Lake County wine while cooling her feet in the water at the end of the dock after dinner.

Kathleen and Dennis Krentz purchased this house in 2008

Why Kathleen and Dennis Krentz chose Clearlake Oaks

Clearlake Keys House is right across the street from our own second home. We're able to insure the house is well-maintained and ready for guests at all times.

What makes this house unique

We work hard to keep Clearlake Keys House in the condition we keep our own home and that our guests deserve. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, Clearlake Keys House offers peace and relaxation, while only minutes from wine tasting and water sports.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" I stayed here with several friends in late April, 2009. It was a great place to stay and the owners were spectacular. Everything ready and they were more than willing to help out with anything we needed. We have since booked a return trip for the first week in May, 2010. I can't wait to return and have a great trip!"

Coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at this place and we are coming back when possible. We went off-road (Jeep) to the Indian Valley Reservoir, was close to this place and it’s really fantastic experience.

Great house, bad time of year

  • 4 of 5

House was great, owners were responsive and helpful, neighborhood was great. The lake didn't want to cooperate and this was just a bad time of year for fishing or any other lake activity without a boat. Will change the time of year for our next visit to this house.

Owner's Response: Jeff, fishing is best on the lake between late March and late June. Most people who want to swim the lake do take out a boat, which can be rented for the day at Clear Lake State Park in Kelseyville. We hope to see you again! Cordially, Dennis and Kathleen

We found a Haven to relax in comfort and have one of the top 3 big bass lakes

  • 5 of 5

We go to Clear Lake often to take long, short vacations​ and for tournament bass fishing. We have stayed in a number of places through VRBO. This is the best experience we have had. The house is comfortable, well stocked including a $20 bottle of wine and cookies, great decks and dock, charcoal Bbq, soaps and shampoo, a large empty lot next door for your boat trailer, easy main lake access. We met one of the owners. He could not have been more friendly and helpful. Hurry and book now . It's the one. No

Very comfy, quiet house on Lake channel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for almost 5 weeks. It has one of the best stocked kitchens of any vacation rental we have rented. The beds were very comfortable and we also enjoyed the large number of varied DVDs. The house was very clean, the neighborhood was quiet and we spent many hours on the deck enjoying the beautiful weather. If you enjoy lake activities or wineries, this is a great place to stay! The owners are very professional and helpful.
