Rental in Retirement Community- No Loud Noises

  • 3 of 5

The rental home was very spacious and nice. The rental owner's family photos were a very nice touch as well. A few things should be noted. There were 8 bottles of used shampoo, conditioner and body wash (and bars of soap) left in the master bathroom shower. They were different brands and were not travel size containers which suggested they were left from previous guests. Dishes were left in the dishwasher and the dryer had been pulled 2 feet off of the wall, so we were unable to use the laundry room to wash items. The pictures suggest the home is on the lake however it is housed in between a house and a set of condos. You will need to walk a short path through a shared grassy area of three condos and one house. This home does not have unlimited parking and sits on the curve of the road which makes it hard to have more than three cars at the home without being on the grass. The patio lights were mistakenly left on and a neighbor came to let us know that they were shining into his bedroom. Please note this is not a home for parties or if you plan to have a lot children as the neighbors are elderly and like little to no noise.

Great place for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the four families staying together. It is big enough that everyone had privacy. The beach access to the lake was perfect for the kids. We also enjoyed the pool and the playground. The porch was probably our favorite part. It is very large and covered and there is lots of seating. We were pleasantly surprised to find a pack-n-play at the house and a wagon for carting around kids or lake stuff. We were thrilled to find all the kid friendly stuff in this house. Like toys and a bunk bed. There are lots of amenities and handy little things that made our stay easier, like a pump for blowing up floats already set up and plugged in. Hint: go by the house before you go to the grocery store. There are lots of spices and dishes at the house. We had a great time. Thanks for letting us use your beautiful home.

Lake Mary Florida

I spent the July 4th weekend- good for families

  • 5 of 5

This home is geared towards families with young children which is why I selected it. Having rented previously in Reynolds Plantation I preferred this location and found Harbor Club to be quieter. This part of the lake was less busy ( although this is a high traffic period on the lake no matter where you are) and is unique in that it has a small sandy beach which was ideal for our situation ...we had a 3 yr old and 15 month old who could use it. The house itself is very large and set up for kids. The outdoor porch was great and we got a lot of use out of it.

We encountered some housekeeping issues on our arrival but credit the owner with being very responsive and had cleaning crew come out the next morning to address issues. We enjoyed our stay here and I would recommend this to any families. We rented a pontoon for a day from a marina close by and there is a dock near the house where it could be tied up. The golf course here looked great, wish I was able to play it,

A great week for all 13 of us!

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren joined us for the week and the house was perfect for our needs. With bedrooms on each floor, we were able to have space so that children could take naps and not be interrupted. We basically just spent the mornings playing in the lake, letting the children nap in the afternoon, playing on the playground in the evening and playing games at night. We took a couple of trips into Greensboro to get some lunch and buttermilk pie at Yesterdays, traveled once to Madison to enjoy looking at the houses and doing a little shopping, and visited the Uncle Remus Museum in Eatonton. We did not take advantage of the golf or boating nearby, but it would have been easy to access if that is what we had wanted to do. Our goal was to get our scattered family under one roof which we were able to do. Beautiful place, lots of deer, nice neighbors.

Great family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with in July of 2014 and again in October of 2015. We had a great time! The house was very spacious and comfortable for our large group, and we really enjoyed spending time on the nice deck! The kids and the adults loved playing on the beach (a very unique lake house feature), swimming in the lake, going for walks and riding bikes around the community, and playing on the playground that is walking distance from the house! A great time was had by all on both stays, and we will definitely be back. Thanks, Pete, for your hospitality!

Stayed for a wedding

  • 4 of 5

great location for our purposes as we were attending a wedding in union point. Very spacious place. Bedrooms were exactly as described and i think the property looked better than in the pictures. The owner was very easy to work with and left good instructions and another contact number as it was the labor day weekend and he would be away. The bedding and beds were comfie and clean. The sink in the kitchen looked like it had only wiped out vs cleaned and the detailed cleaning of a home seems to have been neglected, maybe it was too busy in the days before and as the house is rather large it can't all be perfect. It was not a lake view property but very close to the lake. The pool by the clubhouse was great. Overall, it was a beautiful property and neighbourhood. Plenty of towels and enough dishes for simple meals and out crew of 12-13 people. BBQ worked great, nice sundeck to enjoy the hot weather with fans to cool us off. The air conditioning worked excellent as the weather was so hot humid but we were nice and cool. We went to nearby Greensboro to shop and also 5 miles away is a Publix and CVS as well as other smaller stores and services. I would recommend this place to others.
