About the property

3 bed, 3 bath, sleeps 12

Our beautiful lakefront property includes a panoramic view of PK, two level dock with sandy beach water front, large grassed yard, and a large patio area shaded by trees. If you need an area for pets, we have a small dog run as well! Perfect for a weekend getaway for small or large family family vacations. Also our home would be ideal for small retreats. There is also an unattached 'Cottage' with two bedrooms and one bathroom.

About Daniel Decker

My wife and I have 5 children and have lived in Abilene for over 30 years. Since our children have now grown and spread out a bit over Texas, family get-together's are of highest priority and 'The Haven' provides that for us. We haven't owned the property that long, so some of

the walls still look a bit bare since we are still decorating! We hope you enjoy 'The Haven' as much as we do! Psalm 107:30 Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. (Psa 107:30 ESV)

Daniel Decker purchased this house in 2013

Why Daniel Decker chose Texas

Our favorite feature is the sandy beach at waters edge. This make the home as 'grandchildren' friendly as a lake house could be. The design of the home with the optional optional 'Cottage' allows us to easily accommodate 12 people.

We celebrated my Dad's 70th. The house was great and everything was as advertised. Quiet and peaceful. The private dock was great and lots of fun fishing. Would definitely go back!

The property

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are amazing. Our family loves the place. We had ten adults and one baby. Plenty of room for all of us. Kitchen is well equipped, appliances have been upgraded. the swimming beach is great and so is the dock. Had a wonderful time and no one left for 3 days. We were there for five days and hope to go again next year.

Very nice property. Roomy and right on the water. Relaxing and a great getaway.

In the property description, it states the property has a private boat dock. It does not state that renters can use the vacant boat slip on the dock nor does it give any instructions on how to use the boat lift in that slip. Because of the lack of information, I tethered my boat to the side of the dock which resulted in damage to my boat and the dock. It wasn't til the last day that the maintenance man informed me that could have put my boat inside the empty slip. I was charged for the damage to the dock AND for damage to a wave runner slip which i never even used. Additionally, in the rental agreement, it states that renters should inspect the property when you arrive for any prior damage from previous tenants. Upon inspection, i found the water and the hot water heater had been left on by the previous tenant's. It also states that an inspection of the property is done by the property manager before new tenants arrive. When i informed the property manager that the water and water heater had been left on, he said "oh our neighbors used the property and it had not been inspected prior to us arriving". How can they charge you for damages when they haven't inspected the property between renting it out??

There are concrete steps going into the water that are very dangerous. They are very slippery and there is no railing to hold on to. My grandson and my wife both had a very bad fall. We had to ban our family members from using the steps during our stay which made it very difficult to get into the water. The neighbors on both sides of us had large dogs that were allowed to roam around on our lawn and poop on the grass which scared my grandchildren.

There was only one small dumpster for the property which we filled up after just 2 days (there were 12 of us). Then we had to "haul" the trash to a larger public dumpster in my pickup. There were lots of food items left in the fridge that we were told we were welcome to, however we brought our own food and and it was difficult to fit everything we had into the fridge because of how much was left from the previous tenants. This should be cleaned out and left empty for new tenants.

The neighbors on our left kept asking if they could use the empty cottage because they had a large crowd of people and didn't have enough room for everyone to sleep.

This was our first family reunion and overall we had a very enjoyable stay. Just a few issue's that need to be addressed before we would consider renting again.

Family vacation fun

This is one of the best homes we have stayed at in the 15 years we have been renting from home away. The lay out of the property is fantastic, the dock is wonderful....we will definitely be back.
