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.

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

The property is beautiful and has just about everything that you can think of. The dock is great and the private beach is perfect for the dogs. We can't wait to come back next year but definitely for a week or more!

Very nice and well maintained home. The dock was awesome which goes more than 100 feet into the lake where you can sit and enjoy the sunset or enjoy fishing or just sit and relax. Thank you Jon and Susan.

Clean, comfy, relaxing with all the amenities you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

Driving up to the house is awesome! You see the view of Clear Lake, and then you look to your left, and the house is there, with a perfect view of the lake. The house itself is clean, spacious and homey. Not the homey with cluttered things, but the homey that is modern and clean, but not sterile. The amenities were great (Susan does not lie about what she has in the house, the description is accurate, plus much more), kept us occupied. We needed more time there to be honest.

There was a total of 12 of us and we fit in it nicely. We ranged from my parents (seniors) to middle aged (30's), teens, and kiddos (5-8 years). We all had found things to do in the house. The only thing that is an issue is if anyone has the loft beds, it can be hard to sleep if people want to gather in the living room. That said, the early sleepers should get the rooms.

The other issue was that in the middle of BBQing on the gill, the propane ran out. There was a place to fill it nearby, could have walked if we wanted, so that was easy enough. Again, wish we had more time at the house to use the propane we filled. But we used our fair share of the kitchen condiments and equipment (well stocked) that I do not mind contributing to the house.

Susan and her husband came toward to end of our visit, and was so kind and welcoming, but also gave us our space. They promptly cleanied the dock, took the huge rotting fish out from under the dock and delivered dock furniture.She even installed a two person hammock, which was awesome to lay in. Susan is easy to reach and always in communication.

Overall, I can confirm everyone's wonderful review of the house. Modern, clean, well stocked, and great fun to spend time in. Try to spend more than 2 nights in it!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the house and grounds and all the amenities! It was nice to meet your great family too. The propane is now hooked up directly to the large propane tank for the house so the tank will never run out again! Sorry for the inconvenience and I have no problem reimbursing you that cost. Thank you also for taking the time to review Sunset Beach House! Best, Susan

It was everything it advertised and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Overall this was a fantastic place to stay. There was more than ample places for all seven of us to sleep and yet we were all doing something different without running into each other. The place is spacious both indoors and out. The two firepits were great, but the one by the water was the best. We made smores while a few of us tried our hands at cat fishing. Athough we did not catch anything, we created some great memories. The house was open and spacious and game night was great because we could all sit around the table and have fun. The water is across a small road with your own private beach and dock. The canoe was a blast to just lounge around the lake. There was a great bait shop walking distance up the road.

Susan was great. She kept in touch with me the whole time and gave me some great suggestions for our stay at Clear Lake. I will definitely rat this as one of the best places I've rented through VRBO. Don't miss out on this one, it's everything the photos show and more.

The place had everything that we expected! The weather was so nice as well, but the house was too good that we didn't feel like going outside for a nice view.
