About Lisa Maffia

Our family purchased our waterfront vacation home back in the late 1970's. Born & raised in the Silicon Valley, we wanted a 2nd home to spend weekends & special holidays away with the family. We never get tired of spending time on the lake!

Lisa Maffia purchased this house in 1977

Why Lisa Maffia chose Clear Lake

We had spent several years vacationing in Clearlake and wanted a home of our own to enjoy. Lucerne was a nice central location with many neighborhood amenities. We fell in love with the extra large back yard, since we spend most of our time outside when we are there.

What makes this house unique

We look forward to breathtaking sunsets from our dock or back yard when we visit. Take a boat ride or drive to Ceago winery and local restaurants. We love being on the lake, soaking in the sun and enjoying water sports. Spend the afternoon fishing from our dock, or grab a lounge chair and enjoy the extra large back yard. Watch the kids play in on our fully gated property while relaxing on the hammock.

Great Home for a Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

My family and our friends had a great time at this lake home. We relaxed in the back yard, fished on the dock, had an overall great experience.

The home was well maintained and in great condition. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. It's a great location being right in town. We would love to come back again sometime.

Great house...lots of room, but read description carefully

  • 3 of 5

Maybe because this was the first time I've rented a house, but it was more work than expected. I wish they (the owners)would provide the renters with the rental documents upon inquiry of the rental. Lisa is GREAT and accommodating to our needs and contestant changes and we are very grateful. The description needs to be updated...under "General" WiFi is listed as being a feature (which is a huge plus), but then when we received the rental agreement, no internet provided (bummer). Although there was enough TP in each restroom, there was only one roll of paper towels in the rental, we had to buy a roll to complete all the cleaning required by the agreement. Also there were no extra garbage bags we could use to replace the ones that were full. The only extra bags were the tiny ones in the restroom. It was really hot the weekend we stayed at the house the sun room was a great spot to hang out and eat but because of all the bugs out in the yard we could not fully open all the windows in the sun room because of some of the window screens having holes or gaps around the edges. It would also been nice to have a screen door leading to outside so more air can flow in and out of the sun room. I will say the detached room had the most comfortable beds and a great A/C unit. I would bump it up to 3.5 if I could...Lucerne , the Switzerland of America was a fun little spot to go for a mini vacation

Owner's Response: Hi Kenny, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I do wish however that you would have texted or called me since we DO have wifi at the house as mentioned in our VRBO description page. Since your stay was just for 2 nights, we only provide one extra roll of toilet paper for each of the 3 bathrooms, along with the current roll that is in each room. When we have larger groups stay for a longer period of time, we do provide more. I have never had anyone else complain about it not being sufficient. Guests are then expected to purchase more if what we provide is not enough. This is pretty standard with a house rental vs. staying in a hotel. The amount of cleaning required is also pretty standard for a house rental and is actually pretty minimal. I try to keep the cleaning fees down for guests by having them do a few simple things like strip linens, empty trash cans into main trash cans outside, load the dishwasher, wipe down any spills in the refrigerator if needed, and return anything that was moved or used. I am not sure why extra paper towels would be needed for the cleaning as we do provide kitchen sponges and cleaning sponges are located under the sink. There should have been an extra 2 bags under the current trash can, so if there was not I apologize and will chat with my cleaner. Again, I mention to all renters that they are always welcome to text or call if something doesn't seem right. The bugs outside are unpredictable as mentioned in the paperwork. They are gnats and are a part of the food chain for the fish in the lake, so the county does not treat them. They however, do not bite, but are mainly just annoying when they are present. We used to have a screen on the back sliding door, but it unfortunately keeps getting broken with renters, so have decided to leave off. Our rental agreement is provided after a guest books since it does have our address listed on the paperwork and a lot of information I would rather not have posted to the public for security reasons. I however, am fine sharing our rental agreement with potential renters if they ask me for more information.

Beautiful property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time! The home was well equipped with all amenities needed to make our family feel comfortable. It had enough room for all 11 of us and it didn't feel crammed. I love how the backyard was fully shaded by the perfectly placed tree! We would highly recommend this property to friends. It was definitely one of our top family vacations!

Great Summer Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this house! Very well maintained. Big living room, AWESOME YARD!!! We had 3 small children and they had plenty of room to run around and be wild! Great dock area and room to tie up a boat. The beach was clean and free of hydrilla. Lots of kitchen utensils and dinnerware. The house was all around well stocked. Big driveway for multiple cars (we fit 2 trucks, 1 SUV, and 1 boat trailer with room to spare). Lisa was so great and so tentative to us. I would highly recommend this house to any big group. My family and I are already planning a trip to this house again next summer!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My church has booked this place for women's retreats, leadership retreats, and I'm sure more bookings to come. Furniture is up to date, plenty of everything, and best dock on Clearlake.
