About Katy Olson

Lake Carlos Bay is a family-owned complex. Dave and Lynda purchased the old Lazy Day Villa Resort property on Lake Carlos in 2015. They, along with their daughter, Katy, and her husband, Jon, worked to develop and plan Lake Carlos Bay - it opened in the summer of 2016. Much time and reflection has gone into the building of Lake Carlos Bay - a well-designed, modern facility that offers an ideal vacation for a single family or larger group. All five units (plus now the game room!) are named after Dave and Lynda's six grandchildren.

Alexandria is a great town and this condo was prefect. You are close to toen and great beach area to enjoy the water. Loved having a fire each evening. The owners are very welcoming and have done a great job making you feel like you are right at home.

Beautiful Townhome on Lake Carlos

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at our townhome at Lake Carlos Bay! It is a beautiful property with a walk-out door right to the beach! Katy, Jon and Dave were great! They were there to meet us and show us around and checked on us periodically. Also, the location of this resort is fabulous! We rode our jet skis from lake to lake and easily pulled them up on the shore in front of our beautiful townhome each evening! We enjoyed the game room with ping pong, pool table and basketball shoot if the weather got cool. Also close to the winery and Zorbaz!! We stayed with our son and his wife and our daughter and her husband. Absolutely wonderful family vacation we will always remember! Thank you, Katy, Jon and Dave!!
