About Clearlake and Lakeport:

Clear Lake is nationally known for its Large mouth Bass fishing. Fishing tournaments are held on the Lake year-round. Our cove is a popular fishing spot for high yields of Bass.

Our back and front yards enjoy frequent visits from an abundance of local wild life--including various species of ducks, herons, grebes, geese, pelicans, a pair of white swans, red-tailed hawks, osprey and turtles.

Fall and winter are especially peaceful and pleasant times to enjoy the wild life.

About vito or lucia

We are a busy family that enjoys water sports, dog sports and travel.

vito or lucia purchased this house in 2010

Why vito or lucia chose Lakeport

We love the lake and have been coming for 10 years. When this house came on the market, we grabbed it.

What makes this house unique

Boat dock, swimmable and clear channel and a quick 3 minutes to open water; water fowl.

Being on the channel means it is nestled into lots of avarian wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here for 8 enjoyable nights for work/holiday. This house was such a great find and deal as it was priced the same as a local hotel (and was the lowest priced home on VRBO) with so much more to offer. It was impeccably clean, well layed out and furnished and would be perfect for 6+ people. I only used the master bedroom and the bed was very comfortable.

Instead of watching cable, I enjoyed watching all the wildlife move about especially in the early morning and evening. I was glad the living room didn't have blinds limiting the incredible wildlife viewing (i am a bird nerd").

The patio over looking the channel Is great for morning coffee and evening wine.

I rented a boat one day and tied it to the dock- seemed perfectly functional (but older as the ad states).

The owners have put a lot of effort into this house and it shows. The value for the money can't be overstated enough.

I've already booked 10 more nights in September when I return for work.

Great place on a budget

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this property. During our stay, the house was only really hot in the evenings so we needed to use the fans to try and circulate the air (daytime temps ranged between 90-94 during our stay). The backyard was a nice place to hang out and enjoy the peacefulness (we were there during the week so I'm not sure if it's as peaceful on the weekends). The house was clean and stocked with utensils needed for cooking and grilling, but I recommended bringing any condiments and seasonings you may need beyond salt and pepper.

My husband enjoyed fishing off the pier; he caught 2 bass. The channel has a lot of algae so you will need a boat to go out to the middle of the lake and swim.

Overall, a great place to stay if you don't mind not having ac, wifi, or cable.

Beautiful and serene channel vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for a couples getaway. Boys loved the close casino boat launch and your dock for the early morning outings. Girls loved your patio for sunbathing and catching up on some good reads.

We all have very busy and fast paced jobs. It was simply wonderful to walk into the peaceful atmosphere this home offers. The beds were awesome! Haven't slept that good in a long time. DVD selection was huge! Several excellent restaurants in the surrounding area. We had excellent dinners every night. Last but not least were the rose bushes on the property. They were all in bloom and absolutely gorgeous! Thanks Lucia and Vito for sharing your lovely home with us! We hope to be back soon!!

Great place for bass fisherman.

  • 5 of 5

Located near the casino launch and in the channel off the main lake. I have been coming down to Clear Lake for a couple years now and this place is very convenient for guys fishing a tournament out of the casino.

Nice clean quiet home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, brown dog and myself stayed here for the New Years. We wanted a nice quiet place to relax, read and enjoy the lake. This house was perfect and I'd love to come back during the summer, sounds like this is quite the place for some fishing :) Also love Love Love the fact that there is no cable or WiFi!!!

Lucia was super responsive and easy to work with!

Thank You!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. With the world so filled with technology, social media and all its bombardments, I too enjoy disconnecting and just sitting on the patio or deck while listening to birds out in and over the channel. In the winter, I love sitting inside in front of the fire. The summer has a different vibe with fishing, boating and long warm days. You'll enjoy fishing directly from the dock!

Great stay. We will be back.

  • 5 of 5

My five year old son and I had a boys only weekend. We were going to go camping but the rain was too much so we decided to rent this great home on the water. It started with great communication with Lucia, she answered any and all questions right away. Booking was easy. We had a two and a half hour drive to lake port and once we got to the house we felt like we were home. Warm and inviting and super clean We had a blast fishing off the dock in the back and running around with our dog on the back lawn. Plenty of movies to keep us entertained when the rain was too hard. Everything you needed. No wifi or cable but that was first I didn't know what to think of it but my son and I spent so much time together without being connected that I think it was great not having those. Best boys weekend ever! My son Kept asking me when we are going to go back when we left. Overall, amazing place. Thank you for letting us stay at your home Lucia!
