About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1.75 Baths, (Sleeps 4) Lake View!

The mornings were made to be on the deck of 'The Water Hole' with your cup of coffee or tea just taking in the lake views and the serene setting.

This recently remodeled townhome in the Lake Desoto Castellon Court Community provides great water views of Lake Desoto - w/WiFi and HDTV!

Named 'The Water Hole' this is the sister property to 'The Mulligan Shack'. Both properties reside within Castellon Courts, a great Lake Desoto neighborhood in the resort community of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas (United States' largest gated community at 26,000 acres). With easy access to the shoreline for boating, fishing or kayaking, lake side picnic area, Lake DeSoto Marina and multiple golf courses, it is a great place to plan your next vacation.

This townhome features comfortable accommodations for up to four people in a 1300+ square foot, two story unit with two bedrooms; a master bedroom with a queen bed and the second with two twin beds. This townhome has one full bath and two half-baths, with one of the two half-baths conveniently located next to the living area. A large patio off of the dining area provides an opportunity to relax and get some sun or read while viewing a forested area or enjoy the front deck with all that a lake view has to offer. You can always enjoy the outdoors from inside the townhome with floor to ceiling windows throughout the townhome. A gas grill also provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while cooking. Wireless internet access is provided as well.

Hot Springs Village is the United State's largest gated community (26,000 acres) and offers eight public golf courses, eleven lakes, two seasonal outdoor swimming pools, basketball courts, tennis courts, twenty plus miles of nature trails and an indoor pool and fitness center that includes an indoor walking track.

Lake DeSoto is the fourth largest lake within Hot Springs Village at approximately 200+ acres and has its own swimming beach and a full-service marina for boat rentals and fishing licenses. Lake DeSoto is also a great kayaking lake, as are a number of the other lakes, so do not hesitate to strap on your kayak for additional vacation enjoyment.

Lake Ouachita State Park and Marina is just twenty minutes from the Hot Springs Village West Gate. Lake Ouachita provides additional opportunities for boating, kayaking, scuba diving, fishing and hiking.

Hot Springs (just 20 minutes away) provides great restaurants, antique stores, and art galleries along with bathhouse row and Lake Hamilton, which is yet another lake to explore with many marinas available to rent motor crafts of all types.

You may wish to stop in at Oaklawn Race Track and Casino as well, which offers live horse racing from mid-January thru mid-April and off track betting available year round.

Little Rock (just one hour away) offers access to their downtown historic riverfront and the Clinton Presidential Library. A variety of shopping and restaurant experiences are available as well.

Hot Springs Village also provides you the opportunity to do day/half-day trips to:

Magic Springs/Crystal Falls Water and Theme Park

Garvan Woodland Gardens

Crater of Diamonds State Park

If it is antiquing you enjoy we will provide some personal favorites in North Little Rock and the Benton/Bryant area, as well as in Hot Springs.

About Owner/Manager

Hello from Julia and Tim Clarey! Welcome to Hot Springs Village! Our home is in the Dallas area but we are in Hot Springs Village, as often as we can to enjoy this calming lake and wooded retreat and great golf! We also enjoy kayaking and Lake Desoto is perfect for that as well. We love the Castellon Court areas so much we purchased 'The Mulligan Shack' in 2010 a sister property to the 'The Water Hole' in order to provide more opportunity for family and you to enjoy what Hot Springs Village and namely Castellon Courts has to offer. Please enjoy your time here in Hot Springs Village.

Owner/Manager purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Owner/Manager chose Arkansas

We came for golf (eight courses) and fell in love with the whole package, i.e. golf, lakes, woods, neighborhood and the people.

What makes this townhome unique

Larger group? Looking for more room? Please check out our other property at #358592 aka 'The Mulligan Shack',. Both properties are very close together to provide the optimal family reunion/get together.

I researched some of the Hot Springs area and for us this was a great place for the money. I do all of our travel plans for the past tens years and I look for the biggest bang for our buck and this place is on top of our list. Right on the lake, great view and it felt like a upscale townhouse to us. All details were easy to follow. The bed that I slept in was great, stainless steel appliances. Julia was there if we needed her but everything was laid out beautifully, so we never had to pester her. LOL It was a good base for us there were stores and crystal mines were near by, went to Hot Springs National Park, Clinton Presidential Library and Crater of Diamonds (that was about 1:30ish hrs to get to each from townhouse) and Garvan Woodland Gardens was closer. A great Mexican restaurant for us was Rolando's in Hot Springs, gluten free choices and great plate appeal.

Thank you and have awesome vacation!!

Amazing views for such a great price!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful comfortable home, close proximity to everything HSV has to offer. Awesome sunset views over the lake. I saw waterfowl flying in and floating on the lake. Christmas lights were up in the neighborhood. I love HSV and plan to move there in 5 years it's like living in another world upon your arrival. If you love nature, mountain views, forests, lakes, everything nature has to offer. Very peaceful and relaxing area.

A peaceful getaway exploring the Hot Springs area

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was nice to return to a peaceful location at the end of some long days. We explored Hot Springs, The Bathouses, Garvin Woodland Gardens, Lake Quachita, and rented kayaks at the marina and paddled Lake Desoto. It was quite relaxing to enjoy a glass of wine on the deck while looking out towards a beautiful view of the lake. The accommodations were more than adequate and the neighborhood was quiet.
