About Renee Simchon
I am a real estate broker that loves to vacation... I grew up on the Lake and cherish many childhood memories from boating to social lakeside campfires with friends..I am fortunate to continue that same cherished tradition with my husband and four children. My 33 years in the real estate industry instilled a strong rule that I live by when investing - LOCATION is Everything! When a great property hit the market on Lake Greenwood that was centrally located on the main body of the lake, yet minutes from town + a great neighborhood.. I made the move to own my piece of paradise. I am proud to say that move was one of the best moves I have ever made..We never want to leave the comforts of this beautiful fully renovated luxury home.. After your visit we are sure you will love this waterfront escape as much as we do! Happy Travels, Renee Simchon, owner, BIC Greenwood Realty, Inc.

Why Renee Simchon chose Greenwood
You will not find a better place for a reunion or gathering than this perfect spot on Lake Greenwood. We've hosted countless weddings, corporate events and family reunions. Plenty of parking and a vacant lot next door for tents and activities.

Almost 5 stars but not quite
This review is tricky since the location and house were just as described in the listing. We were disappointed that some basic staples were not provided. Closets were sparse on bent dry-cleaner wire hangers to hang clothes, a necessity since a couple of the bedrooms didn't have dressers for storage. There were no toilet paper holders in any of the bathrooms, no place for food storage (other than the fridge) until we re-organized the kitchen to provide one shelf in a cabinet, and no soap in the dispensers in the bathrooms (unless you count the watered-down soap in the half bath.) The second oven was not working and they were willing to come by and take a look but we didn't really want another person in the kitchen in the middle of preparing a big dinner. Thankfully the grill saved us for our turkey and it turned out fine. The kitchen was well-stocked but seemed like a hodgepodge of "stuff" that was not organized and most of our dry goods sat in the boxes we used to transport them down for lack of space.
The house is beautifully decorated, the care of this is evident, but some of the basic comforts were lacking, and given that we were forced to buy damage-insurance during the check-out process, (which was not included in the fees upfront, I might add), it was clear what is most important. Which on a side note, I thought that's what a security deposit was supposed to be for..? If they would focus on some of the "little details" and make sure everything is working, it would make it a 5-star because the house and grounds really are beautiful.
A beautiful lakehouse!
The description of the property was 100% correct, absolutely beautiful location on the lake, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The house is located at end of cul-de-sac and offers a very panoramic view of Lake Greenwood. Accommodations for the 8 of us was fabulous. Plenty of room on the deck for entertaining and eating. Dining area in house is a bit cramped. Of all, we have a great time.
PROS: Gorgeous views, boat dock, fire pit was nice, hot tub was great once we figured how to use it. Beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water and clean bathrooms. Lots of dishes and pots and pans to cook large quantities of food.
CONS: The dishwasher was left full of clean dishes from last renters. We should not have had to clean out dishwasher. Bottom basket is ready for new wheels. Kept falling off.
The backyard was brown, no rain. However, there were some left beer cans/bottles, trash in the bushes.
The BOSE lifestyle stereo system would not turn on. Even when we put batteries in remote.
The front porch was full of spiders webs and bugs--called and the owners took care of it.
At 4pm on Sat. we were preparing a feast for 12 and discovered the wall oven did not work. There was no use in calling at that time as a repairman would not arrived till Mon. We made use of the gas grill (after thoroughly cleaning it) as an oven to cook part of our meal.
The jacuzzi in the south king suite did not work at all. My sister was looking forward to a nice bath after all the company left only find it not working.
Recommendations: I have rented vacation homes numerous time and most were very nice and considerate of the people who rent them. I would send out a list to all renters letting them know what to bring with them, ie, more trash bags (1 was provided), paper towels (we brought some), and kitchen towels. There were none to dry dishes with and only one pot holder.
Check out was fine. We followed the short instructions to close up.
Another suggestion would be to have a list of places to eat, explore, etc. in the area. Some brochures from the Chamber of Commerce would be helpful.
We would have called on the items that did not work but decided not to cramp up our time with repairmen.
All in all it was a great experience and we would return in the future.
Thanks for the thorough review! We didn't know about the wall oven or the 3rd master jacuzzi until reading your review! We ordered a new wall oven and starter button for the jacuzzi..thank you for letting us know. All of our vacation rentals are supplied with a starter set of bath tissue, trash bags, etc. Glad you said it was a great experience and would return..sorry it wasn't perfect as that is what we aim for! Happy Travels, Renee and Sam Simchon
Nice place, Great Lake
Lovely place. Great beds. Great view. The correspondence could have been a little better but otherwise no complaints. I think for the price, toilet paper and paper towels could
Be provided but been other places that have done the same.
We supply a starter essential pack only. Sorry you were disappointed..Happy Travels!
It was great.
