Perfect place for our weekend getaway on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't get to meet Gill but did talk to him on the phone and know he'd have been there if we needed anything. It was a cute condo and well furnished. Great neighbors too! Will definitely stay here again!

A Picture is Not Worth a Thousand Words

  • 2 of 5

We believe younger people who are on a budget would love this rental. For an older couple, it was difficult to negotiate. We evacuated our quiet home in Savannah, GA, and came to this condo, hoping for beautiful lakeside views - and the pictures of the house and surroundings seemed to show you were on this lovely lake in a lovely little cabin with peaceful neighbors. I guess if we were in better shape, we could have accessed the lake which was down a rough trail behind the trees at the rear of the rental. We arrived on Sunday, the hurricane arrived on Monday, and the power went out the same day. We were supposed to be there until Thursday, but we left on Tuesday, eager to return to the peace of our little neighborhood. It probably would have been all right had we been closer to stores, but we were far away from all amenities. The owner was very nice, but we believe there was a bit of false advertising here.

Owner's Response: Thomas thanks for your review. We take them very seriously. Certainly you read the reviews before you booked which we are very proud of. Yes for an older couple navigating the path to the lake is a little work but still quite beautiful. Keep in mind too the weather during this time was rough also. I think my photos represent the property quite well . The great thing is you were safe from the storm with great neighbors that would step to the plate if you needed them. Thanks for your visit.

Exactly what I needed was a terrific bed and a clean place to hang out awaiting for my condo to be renovated. Very accommodating. And the owner, Gill Mendes, was also accommodating!

Quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

After spending several weeks in the traffic and noise of John's Creek, it was very restful to relax at Lake Lanier. Traveling with a puppy is not easy and this was the perfect spot for Schatzi. He enjoyed the covered porch and was able to take interesting walks. The owner is very solicitous of your needs and comfort. The experience was much like being at summer camp with access to the lake both from the property and from the nearby marina.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay for the week! Thanks, Gill! We live in Nevada and were looking to visit our son for a week (who lives in Buford) and looked at extended stay motels at first before finding this place! What a great find for the price! (We were actually 'upgraded' to a 2 bdrm at no extra charge) Loved everything about it! Highly recommend Gill and these properties! Enjoyed the condo, the lake, and Pelican Pete's Restaurant!
