Property description

Spike's Place is located in a small cove with a southern exposure and magnificent 'million dollar' view overlooking the main channel, the Hales Ford Bridge, Smith Mountain and the Bridgewater Plaza just below Bouy Marker R 30. This waterfront unit is one of two in a unique triplex (See Kathy's Place, VRBO Listing #218590) situated on over 2 acres in a single family residential subdivision. A convenience store is 5 minutes away; and grocery stores, restaurants, shopping centers, marinas, boat rentals, movies and the State Park are all within 5 to 30 minutes' drive - some by car and some by boat! The small protected cove is ideal for swimming, fishing, floating, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating with easy access to the lake and only 2 minutes from the Bridge by water, which has restaurants, miniature golf, game room, gift shops, realtors, etc. and our Chamber of Commerce.

Spike's Place is a ground level lakefront unit totaling 1400 sq. ft. All rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. It has 2 bedrooms with a connecting bath. One bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed. The other bedroom has a double bed and a twin bed. The large great room has a dinette, full kitchen, living room furniture with a new 42' HD Flat screen TV with BLURAY DVD Player. DirecTV HD Platinum Package includes HBO, CINEMAX and SHOWTIME. Wi-Fi High Speed Internet and local telephone service are also included. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel cookware, 17 cu. ft. refrigerator, microwave, blender, toster and coffeemaker. The unit has cleaning supplies, vacuum, ironing board, iron and hairdryer. The tiled patio has wrought iron furniture, a porch swing and a hammock under the trees.

In 2010, we tiled the dining/kitchen area, bathroom and outside patio. New carpet was laid throughout the living area and bedrooms. New vertical blinds were hung. A new countertop, cabinets, glass top stove and microwave were also installed. We also replaced the recliner chair.

All bed linens, bath and kitchen towels along with toilet paper, dish soap, trash bags and courtesy soaps are provided year round EXCEPT FOR THE SUMMER WEEKLY RENTALS. SUMMER WEEKLY RENTERS MUST BRING THEIR OWN BATH AND BEACH TOWELS. The other items listed above will be provided.

There is a dock/patio area, diving board and a large floater dock with electric, water and fish cleaning stand. You will have shared use of 6 kayaks, a paddleboat, canoe and sandy beach. The dock has access by stairs or golf car ramp. A complimentary golf car will also be provided for your exclusive use (adult drivers only!) during your stay for access to the dock and beach.

We are Pet Friendly provided you have a crate to contain your pet when necessary; your pet is currently in a flea treatment program 60 days prior to your arrival; and you clean up after your pet. There is not a leash requirement on our property provided your keep your pet under control. The neighborhood is 'casual' and cats and dogs do wander onto the property at times. A $50.00 fee per pet will be charged for extra cleaning to keep the unit and yard neat and clean. Any major damage done by your pet will be repaired and billed to you.

There is 'No Smoking' inside but ashtrays are provided on the deck and dock areas outside. Please do not throw butts in the year, driveway or lake. Thank you for your cooperation.

Our rentals are self-managed, cleaned and maintained directly by us, the owners, Captains Spike & Kathy Franceschini of Spike's Prime Time Fishin'. We and our boats are on premise and available for charter. Please see additional web links on this site.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: We started 'Spike's Prime Time Fishin' in 1988. Spike and I are striper charter captains with two 22 ft. deck boats. We purchased the triplex to offer fishing charters and waterfront vacation rentals to our clients and to anyone who enjoys the water like we do. We tried to put the amenities we liked best in all of the places we have traveled and stayed into our fishing and waterfront vacation rental business.

Why the Owner Chose Moneta, VA, USA:
We chose our triplex immediately for the magnificent view! We also chose it for close proximity to stores, etc. and Route 122. It is near the Hales Ford Bridge, which gives us close access to Bridgewater Plaza and local marinas. It also puts us halfway on the Roanoke River side of the lake, which gives us excellent access to fishing from the Dam to the headwaters the year round. We have deep water under our docks but also have a small shallow water sandy beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
A golf car is included in your rental. We have shared use of 6 kayaks, a paddleboat, canoe and sandy beach. There is great fishing off of our docks. Situated on over 2 acres, we are surrounded by large white pines which give a 'compound' effect for privacy. There is plenty of grass for putting up our volleyball/badminton/croquet sets. A large paved driveway is wonderful for skateboards, bikes, rollerblades and sidewalk chalk. We also live on a dead end street and keeps traffic to a minimum, good for walking and biking.
