About the property

5 Bedrooms 4 Baths, (Sleeps 17), House, 3 twin over double beds for kids.3 story

WE PRESENTLY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF REPLACING FURNITURE SO THE PICTURES DO NOT MATCH. (Yearly renters moved out). This is a beautiful five bedroom, four bath home (3,000 square feet) in a quiet gated golf community. It has a large front porch with a swing and rocking chairs and a large back porch with benches, table and chairs, and a gas grill. This all overlooks Lake Catherine (not on the lake but overlooks the lake). Deer constantly roam the area and pass right under the deck or in the yard.

The home has three floors connected with a spiral staircase. Upstairs are two bedrooms with 1 queen bed in each with a bathroom in next door. (I am unable to update the pictures yet due to the pixil size. It shows single beds upstairs & doubles downstairs. That has been reversed).The main level has the kitchen, bathroom, livingroom, fireplace, huge living area, and the master bedroom with a queen-sized bed & walk in closet. The living room & dining room opens out to the huge back deck with grill. The lower level has a storage room, laundry room, and 2 bedrooms (1 large 1 small) with a his and her bathroom. One bedroom has 3 bunk beds with twins over double = 9 sleepers (mainly for kids). The beds face a sliding glass door which looks out to Lake Catherine.The other has a twin bed). The downstairs is usually for all the kids to gather. The home has free Wi-Fi.

The house is fully-furnished with pots and pans, dishes, linens, paper towels etc.... Great for family reunions or church groups.

About Kenneth Cooper

I'm a retired Air Traffic Controller & Carol is retired from Continental Express. We like to travel. We use this home for our big family get-togethers every other Christmas or Thanksgiving & some Summer get-togethers.

Kenneth Cooper purchased this house in 1998

Why Kenneth Cooper chose Hot Springs

Very peacful, quiet area & we love to have family reuinions there as it is large enough to handle us. We watch deer roam the grounds or go to waterparks, fishing, skiing or hiking to the waterfall. We like to rent a pontoon boat & take a family slow boat ride around the lake (pulling kids on a float behind) & eat watermelon.. Very nice & we make memories with grandkids.

Great location... Amazing Views... Great for family reunions

  • 4 of 5

Check In was well explained. Loved the experience. When we arrived at 11 PM, we saw Police vehicles at the Main Community gate so got reaffirmation that the property community is well guarded.

The property is little bit inside fully covered with trees and may become pretty dark in night but that was alright based on detailed explanation on how to find the keys etc.

The main living area, kitchen (fully equipped), upstairs bedrooms and downstairs bedrooms were perfect.

The only reason I am taking one star away because the staircase carpet and the main bedroom closet carpets definitely need a good steam cleaning and a scrub. We did not even enter the closet.

The views - Oh My god, can not beat this. Just cannot. Morning coffeee in the balcony with a full view of Lake was amazing. Colors from the fall in the property was just breath taking.

This property will get dark in night but we were a family of 12 so it was good experience.

The furniture/mattresses were in good shape. Full score there.

Overall - We highly recommend this property and the only suggestion to wonderful house owners - Please take care of those carpet with a good steam / brush clean from cleaning vendors.

Thank you for our memories.

Owner's Response: Dear Sunny, Yes the stairs carpet is always a problem. The closet is clean. The carpet color is actually a light tan with black & purple specks in it. So at 1st glance it does appear dirty. It use to be in the entire bedroom but we took it out for that reason. Glad you liked the stay though. Kenneth

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is my third visit to Hot Springs and we generally rent Condos. This place is absolutely fantastic and next to lake catherine. Cup of coffee with drizzling rain and fall colors sums up the fun we had. Good place for a family get together and definitely worth the penny.

Nice home

  • 3 of 5

All in all this was a nice rental. The views are gorgeous and the deck to enjoy them is fantastic and huge. The house is very spacious and very private. We had an issue with picking up the keys after hours and after a very long drive and arriving late at night, that was a bit irritating. However it was resolved in a timely manner. The beds are not as described in the photos, the 4 twins were downstairs. It wasn't an issue, but the sheets downstairs did not appear to be washed, there was hair all over them. The rest of the beds were very comfortable, just a little creaky and noisy. The sheets and towels were very soft. Showers were fine, except the 3rd floor shower started leaking into the 2nd floor bathroom. A very good attempt was made by property management to correct this, however after the plumber not showing up the first day, it wasn't worth the phone calls during my vacation to make sure it happened. It was easier to just use another shower, only a little inconvenient. The couches are incredibly uncomfortable, but I didn't mind that since I wasn't really on it. The home could use some decor updates, but I didn't really care about that either. Even with the small annoyances, it was a good vacation.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. Sorry there was a problem getting the keys & I have addressed that with the real estate company. I was there doing remodeling right before you arrived. We did change the bed arrangement around as a suggestion of previous renters. As far as the sheets not being changed I assure you they were. I just happened to have been there painting the morning the cleaners came (I usually am not there) & I saw them change them. I took pictures to put on the site & update things but had not had time between your arrival & my travels home & getting it downloaded to the computer. So yes some things looked a little different from the web-site. You were just caught in the middle. But it was only the bed arrangement & some cosmetics. I do agree the sofa is not very comfortable & that is next on my list to replace. As far as the plumbing problem the real estate office should have handled that & you should not have waited for the plumber. My agent should have. Thanks for the feedback as it will help me improve the home & how renters are handled by my agents. Thanks, Kenneth

Spacious and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had seven women sharing this house for a weekend getaway, and it was pretty much perfect. There was a little confusion with the TV and DVD player, but that didn't factor in too much. We had just about everything we needed and had a great time. We were all comfortable, with enough room to be together but still have personal space. We all highly recommend this house, and will most likely be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Jessica, Glad y'all had a great time. I have to confess that even when I go it takes a while to figure out the T.V/DVD. I guess if someone was there permanent it would be O.K.

Super Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to visit Hot Springs as a family and our first time at Serendipity House and Diamond Head. Everything was terrific - PLENTY of room for all - BEAUTIFUL views - great amenities - and just right for vacation fun & memories! The patios and porches were custom made for relaxing, cooking out, or just gathering together. The location provided lot's of quiet time and easy access to the park, lake, marina, pool, golf course, and it was not far to any where we wanted to be...... We just had a great time and hope to come back soon!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! My grandsons graduation prompted a family reunion and this house was perfect. The minute you walk through the door you feel totally relaxed. Whether it was sitting on the back deck talking about "old times", or rocking the little ones to sleep on the front porch. Thank you for allowing us the use of this wonderful house. We are planning on another reunion and will be checking on this house in the future. Memories were made here.
