Why Susan Parkinson chose Clear Lake

Beautiful property with waterfront. Great place to bring our kids and enjoy time away from the SF Bay Area. Far enough for a getaway, but not as far as Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

Walks along the waterfront, boating, wine tasting. Very relaxing family environment. New dock in 2016 with large 16 X 16 sitting area, large suspended platform for boats with locked gate access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What we did: Fishing, boating, went for a ride on the Sea Doo, made s'mores.

We had a blast! Would love to come back and spend more time, it was nice and relaxing.

Fantastic 4th of July stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic! We had 4 families with children under age 6 and the house was a great set up. Fully fenced back yard and water across the road made so all parents could relax and enjoy their time also. The house has all the amenities you would need and we never had to leave the house! Will definitely be back next year!

This was our second time here and we loved it the same. Always enjoy my time at this place with my family. We plan on making it a yearly thing and come every year. The owners are awesome and super accommodating.

San Francisco

lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect place for our group of 3 adults and 6 kids. We especially loved the beach area and taking out the canoe. The kids did a lot of fishing off the dock and caught 1 bass and almost 20 crappie. We spent a lot of time around the fire pit enjoying the great views of the lake, and roasting marshmallows...lots of osprey overhead and grebes out on the lake doing their mating dances...The less fishing inclined kept busy with the Foosball table and hot tub. We have rented several places on the lake and this was by far our favorite. We hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family had a great time and would love to have you back! Great to hear how successful you were at fishing right off the dock too! Look forward to hosting your next adventure at Clear Lake-only 2.5 to 3 hours from San Francisco. Take care and have a great summer. susan

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I came up for my birthday weekend. We took a girls gateway- eight of us enjoyed our stay. We all fell in love with the house. The location of the property was peaceful and quite. We had an amazing time kayaking. We all enjoyed the deck and experienced breathtaking sunrise. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at the Sunset beach house. I would come back again during summer.

Perfect Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Beach House. The house was very clean and inviting. Large kitchen. Beds were very comfortable. The host was kind enough to recommend restaurants and things to do in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Tarek for choosing Sunset beach House and for the great review! Glad you enjoyed the new dock too! Would love to host you and your group again. We are always reinvesting in our property so you may see some changes/improvements in the future. We just added more solar panels to keep up with the energy usage and added some palms and a bird of paradise plant to the backyard to make it more tropical! More to, susan
