Why Susan Parkinson chose Nice

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.

Great Location, Great House, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home for a large group since there is a cottage and main house that you can rent. The yard space was great for hanging out at night and making smores by the beach! The pictures do not do justice to how big the space! Not only was the home great but Susan was very accommodating to my group given that we were trying to throw a surprise birthday party for my friend! She was very quick to respond to questions both before and during our stay. I would recommend this place hands down to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and we are happy you enjoyed our property with your large group! Glad you took advantage of all the large spaces out side the houses as well. I try to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy-horse shoes, firepits, canoeing, lounging on the decks, enjoying the lake and fishing! The lake was so high this year and relatively algae free that it made for a great summer and lake experience for many family and friend reunions! Hope to have you back soon. Best, susan and jon

Spectacular setting.

My wife and I truly enjoyed this property. The views of Clear Lake from the house are amazing and having access to the private pier allows for a more amazing experience. When you do go back inside, the house is spacious and very comfortable. We will definitely be back......

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!
