About the property

Estate, 5 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4 Baths, (Maximum 8 adults, sleeps 10-12))

Immerse yourself in complete tranquility. Escape to some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere. Situated on one of California’s premier recreational lakes and minutes to some of the world’s finest vineyards, you won’t be disappointed. Poised on a large flag lot over looking Lake Nacimiento and its surrounding mountain ranges, you’ll enjoy the most exquisite views and unabated privacy. This comfortable 4 bedroom, 3 bath home has recently undergone a complete renovation from top to bottom and offers superior lake views from every room. On the main floor you'll find a family sized bedroom and bath, along with the kitchen, dining and living rooms. The lower floor contains 3 large bedrooms and baths, including a master suite with access to its own deck and 8 person jacuzzi. Every bedroom has at least one king size bed with the exception of a kids room which has two large bunk beds that can accommodate 6, kids or adults. Special attention was paid to selecting only the most comfortable beds and plush pillows and linens, guaranteed to provide the comfort you need for a restful nights sleep. For those desiring exclusive privacy, there is a 600 sq ft, detached guest cottage with its own bathroom and kitchenette. This home provides everything you need to be self sufficient, including a spacious and well appointed kitchen, and outdoor grill. There is plenty of pantry storage for all of your food items and ample dining accommodations, both inside and out.

When not playing on the lake or enjoying the club house pool spend your time relaxing on one of several decks encompassing the property. More than 1000 sq ft of outdoor living space is available for your enjoyment. A large covered patio off the main house, equipped with cooling systems, provides the protection you need on sunny days, while two large uncovered decks provide a planetarium experience at night. Did I mention privacy? The house is surrounded by open space, with significant buffering from its neighbors. As if that’s not enough, a large playroom provides billiards, foosball and a full workout facility with TV. If work does get in the way of your vacation, know you’ll have free high speed wireless internet to stay connected. Given the abundance of rains this year, the Lake is nearing its full capacity, providing endless space for your boating needs with miles of meandering tributaries just waiting to be explored. Simply stated,this remarkable home provides all of the amenities you need to create the memory of a lifetime for your family and friends. Lake rules limit the maximum adults renting to 8.

Why The Owner chose Bradley

We love the beauty of lake views and boating. Lake Nacimiento, merely 800 ft above sea level, 5 miles as a bird flies to the ocean, inland from Cambria, San Simeon and Hearst Castle was the perfect alternative. The 'Dragon Lake' as they call it, because of its shape, is very unique; being more like a river than a static pool of water. The Lake is one of the fastest filling lakes in California, virtually replenishing itself every year, while boasting water temperatures in the 80's. The lake is large, 17 miles from tip to tail and provides dozens of tributaries that traverse the mountains, virtually allowing anyone to escape to their own private sanctuary. Homes are scarce leaving most of the surrounding shoreline in its natural state; rolling, grassy hills scattered with thriving multi-colored Oak trees, sandy beaches for picnicking, a plethora of animals; birds, eagles, hawks, cattle, deer and even turkeys. The climate is refreshing. While summer days can hit triple digits; the nights always provide cool relief, something you won’t enjoy at the Colorado River. Further, low ambient lighting at nights provides Planetarium level star gazing. The Milky Way stands out like a rainbow of white lights in the sky. The scenic 3.5 hour drive from Los Angelos along one of California's most beautiful road ways enables us to enjoy the unique beauty and pleasures of Ventura, Santa Barbara, Solvang, Pismo Beach, SLO and Paso Robles along the way. The more than 150 nearby vineyards, were icing on the cake. While not originally a motivation for buying, a day of wine tasting has become one of our most enjoyable pastimes. There are no limits to the fun that you can have and every visit leaves you wanting more.

What makes this estate unique

The benefits are endless and you will thoroughly enjoy your stay at our home. It’s both adult and kid friendly; providing every amenity you would expect at your own home, and more. The community is friendly, walkers abound. There’s a large pool where you can relax, when you’re tired of the lake. Theres a 18 hole miniature golf course to enjoy with the kids, and a nearby campground to enjoy smores around a campfire. Nights are unusually quiet, absent the city noise that most of us have to endure. But the best benefit of all is the unobstructed 270 degree view from the decks. The fiery sunsets and multi dimensional views of the mountains and shimmering lake are picturesque and surreal. There isn't a more beautiful view in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here for an entire weekend with friends for a get-together and so much fun that we plan on coming back, hopefully soon. The weather started out bad but turned great as the weekend progresses to make it truly memorable. A very well appointed house. Thanks for making it a very pleasant stay. We really enjoyed the spa and the amazing views!!

Great house for family fun

  • 5 of 5

Just heading home from another great stay at Honey's Hideaway. Our favorite spot is the spacious comfortable deck with the view of the lake, with misters to keep you cool. Linens and beds are clean and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen. Awesome ice maker. Game room. Hit and miss with the wifi and beware of the code enforcers in Oak Shores. They will even come down the driveway to check on your parking passes. Follow the rules and you will be fine. This Birkler's could not be nicer or more accommodating.

Perfect lake house for our family vacation. Has all of the amenities that you would need.

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect size for a family. It had many bedrooms and places to sleep. All of the bathrooms were fully stocked with plenty of towels. One of the best parts of this place was the commercial ice machine in the game room. Never had to worry about running out of ice. The game room prove to be a hit. The pool table and the foosball table we're awesome. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans. The patios were a great place to enjoy morning coffee and the view of the lake. The house was relatively close to the launch ramp. Making it easy to offload the boat. I would recommend this house to anyone that would love to enjoy Lake naciemento.

This House is Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house from the Birkler's and loved every minute being there!

We were a family of 13...7 adults and 6 children. This house was so accommodating for such a large group. Everyone had a bedroom for themselves. The kids were in a room with bunkbeds and a TV/DVD player and great movies to watch. There was also a great playroom with pool, foosball, and an Arcade video...the kids thought they had died and gone to heaven! When you can keep 6 children entertained for 7 days, it is Heaven! hee, hee!

As the "old folks" of the group, we chose to sleep in the "Granny Suite" which is located separate from the main house. Wonderful , wonderful! The room has a very nice, comfortable bed with two comfy chairs and a TV. It also has a kitchenette with refer, microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom was perfect.

The view from the porch, which runs the length of the house, is beautiful. No matter what time of day, you could sit for a long time to view the lake and all the beauty surrounding it and never tire of it.

I should mention that we have rented houses in Oak Shores before this one and none compare to this.

Let's just say, if I could, I would buy this place! It's that perfect!
