About Susan Sims

We're a blended family from Maple Glen, PA (suburban Philadelphia) with 6 kids, ranging in age from 15 to 27 as of 2017. We love both the beach and the more family-oriented mountains.

Susan Sims purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan Sims chose Poconos

We did extensive research into the various Pocono communities. We wanted lake front, within a reasonable drive from Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York, where we have family; a good/established community with a lot of amenities at a good value; and at least 1 heated swimming pool within walking distance was a MUST. There also needed to be a variety of attractions both within and near the community that would be of interest to kids of all ages.

What makes this house unique

No 'old house smell' in our home! We're trying to create a contemporary but warm and comfortable decor, that's family-friendly, and that takes full advantage of the lake year round. Although our home is pet-friendly to well-behaved pets (we have 2 dogs) and owners, absolutely no smoking is allowed. To maintain the new carpets and furnishings and ensure that the house remains at its best, we prefer renting to families and will not rent to groups of college-aged individuals.

VoloVista July 2017

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our week at VoloVista. The house is spacious and well-equipped. It is only a couple of doors away from the beach and playground, so it is a perfect house for guests with children. We used and enjoyed the games, boats and the dock. Suzie was great to work with. We'd happily return.

Great Communication and Wonderful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Suzie was amazing to work with. My family and I went to the Poconos during Memorial Day Weekend. We rented two homes during our stay and this home blew the other home out of the water. Throughout the entire planning process Suzie was very accessible and accommodating to make this process as seamless as possible. Her home was stocked with cooking tools and utensils we may have forgotten which was a plus. This home was very beautiful! I wold recommend.

2nd time staying. Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Volovista. The house is warm and cozy and comfortably fit our group of 13. We loved being right on the lake and enjoyed evenings outside around the fire pit. The owner, Suzie, is very accommodating and accessible. We had a last minute addition to our group (after we'd already checked in) and I was able to reach Suzie and she informed the gate house of the additional name to the list. We plan to come back next year, or maybe this summer!

beautiful summer on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful! If you like to canoe/kayak, it's just a few strides from your deck.Like to sunbath and relax with a book or magazine? You are one property away from a clean, life guarded beach.Don't want sand on your feet?A private dock in your backyard. Couch potato-smart tv's in all the bedrooms and living room(plus gameroom).We enjoyed all of it! The owners were great at helping coordinate our trip and quick to answer any questions we had. We also enjoyed hanging out on the deck at night while our older kids made smores at the firepit. We will be back!

What we've been looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been looking for a nice rental for us and our family to enjoy in the summer. When I saw this one online I felt we had to check it out. It is nearly perfect for us! Our grandchildren (8 and 6 years of age) had a really good time especially with the beach just 2 properties away. They had their little bit of freedom but were still under watch. There was room enough for all 8 of us and the living room was just right, too. We liked the kitchen and especially the dock. If I had to pick out one problem I would like to see something done about the back yard, but the handyman who watches the house said there might be some improvements in the near future. All in all it was a very nice stay and I have already begun arrangements to return this summer. Thanks, Suzie!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I agree with you about the back yard - being in the woods, right on the lake, it can get "spongy" when it rains. I have to ask the community what, if anything, they'll let me do - conservation, water run-off, regs, etc. I'm hoping that I'll be allowed to put in some sort of permeable paver/slate as a walkway, and possibly a patio around the fire pit. No guarantees, though. Come again, soon! On the bright side: I just replaced all of the TVs with "smart" TVs - gotta love desperate sales guys at year-end! :-)

Great vacation-the owner is now a friend

  • 5 of 5

We were at VoloVista for the labor day weekend 2013. This was one of the best vacation we have had. The house is beautiful and accommodated us comfortably (9 Adults, 3 kids and a dog). Be it swimming in the lake or the canoeing.. fishing in the evening or sitting by the fire pit after dusk... barbeque on the deck or watching a movie in the living room.. It all was so much fun that there is no doubt we'll be back again next year.. And Susan, You are now more of a friend than just the owner of VoloVista. Thank you! We'll see you next year!!!

Cheers,

Joseph
