About Derek Thomason

My wife and I purchased this rental home in Oct of 2014 from some great friends of ours that had previously had this home on VRBO for the past 11 years with all 5 star excellent reviews and most customers returning yearly. We've have taken great pride in this home and treat it like our own from the updated furnishings to the condition of the property and how its maintained. You wont find a better home all around for the money anywhere at Lake of the Ozarks!

Derek Thomason purchased this house in 2014

Why Derek Thomason chose Lake of the Ozarks

QUIET & SECLUDED. A beautiful home, located right on the water's edge, five miles east of Laurie, MO, in the Village of Gentle Slopes, an upscale single family private community. Watch the many deer run, the eagles fly, or relax fishing or swimming. Enjoy nature at it's best without losing access to the conveniences of your everyday lifestyle. Within five miles there is an abundance to do, ranging from golf & movie theaters to your everday needs like, grocery stores & restaurants. If shopping is your passion, there is a huge Outlet mall only 20 minutes away. Go-Karts and Big Surf Water Park are also an excellent idea for a day outing with the kids.

CALM WATER. Truly one of the very few locations at the Lake of the Ozarks where you won't fight the rough water created by lots of big boats! Fish or swim from the dock without danger. This home is located on a very large cove where you won't need a large boat to feel safe doing all your water activities.

LEVEL GRASSY YARD. NO stairs to get to the lake! Perfect for playing games with easy access to the lake. Entering the water from the shoreline the water depth is very gradual as you move away from the shore, perfect for wading or a water volleyball game.

What makes this house unique

Private neighborhood & friendly nieghbors with all paved access roads and a dead end steet for children to play, ride bicyles, skateboard, etc.

Beautiful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Derek for being so responsive to all of our questions. We loved the location, size and accomodations of this house. We fixed all of our dinner meals and anything we needed in the kitchen was provided (besides the food of course!). We enjoyed s'mores by the firepit and grilling on the grill. Thank you for making your home feel like our home. We hope to make this an annual trip. Cheers!
