Exactly what we hoped for!
Great house! We enjoyed the BBQ area and beautiful view of the lake. Everything was exactly as advertised. Thank You!
Great spot, perfect for extra space for a large group
Susan is an excellent, communicative host. The cottage is next to the main Sunset Beach House, and it's perfect extra space for larger groups. I left a fuller review on the Beach House property, but this cottage is just as excellent and is steps away from the main house so everyone was comfortable and close by. Thank you, Susan!
Thank you again for your great review of our cottage. Really appreciate it and glad you enjoyed the property and the amenities! Susan
It was everything it was advertised to be, very nice condition, clean, and the bed was so comfy!
I've rented a lot of properties through VRBO/HOME AWAY but not often enough to always remember all the steps. Need to remember to view the contract during the search step to learn all the unadvertised details. Here, we had to launder any towels we used, and do the dishes, which we didn't learn until we had already made our decision. When we're on vacation, we don't want to do laundry or dishes so we brought our own. This is in addition to a cleaning fee plus a service fee and paying top dollar. The place was nice and the owner was very prompt and responsive. Other than the fires in the area we had a great time.
I am very surprised at the 2 star review based on the mainly positive review. We have received many reviews stating how clean the house is upon the arrival. This is very important to us especially since we are dog friendly. We also keep our costs for house cleaning as low as possible to our guests. No rise in over 10 years! Part of that is that we do ask guests to put a load of towels in the washer before leaving. We dont expect you to wait and also put them in the dryer. I will correct that part of the contract. Takes 1 minute to load towels and start washer but helps housecleaner re her time at the house. I think everyone loads the dishwasher and starts it before leaving. No need to wait for it to finish of course. I do not believe these are unreasonable requests. Of course we want you to enjoy your stay with us and not have to bring anything extra except clothes and your water toys and positive attitude! If anyone has an issue with our rental contract terms dont hesitate to discuss with us prior to signing it or prior to your stay. We are very responsive and just want you to relax and enjoy the property and lake! We are more than a 2 star property and in more 5 years on this site routinely get 5 stars. Cheers!
Very nice little lakefront cottage
Very clean, well stocked cottage with a new dock giving access to Clear Lake. Owner extremely response and accommodating to all requests and questions. Didn’t catch any fish but the grand kids had great fun trying!
