Spacious family retreat!
We just stayed at the Villa. My husband & I were there for a week and our kids & their families came for a long weekend. There were 13 of us, including a 4-month old, 8-month old, 2 year old & 6 year old...translation...utter chaos! Plus, it rained almost the entire time the kids were there! Thank goodness the villa was so spacious! We loved the time spent on the screened porch. No mosquitos or gnats to contend with. We also enjoyed watching the wildlife while we were out there...twin fawns, hawks & turtles.
There were several other real pluses for us with the villa...great water pressure, 2 full-size fridges, garage parking, bagged ice in the deep freeze and miscellaneous infant equipment items for our use...high chair, booster seat/car seat, umbrella strollers, etc. Thank you.
Unfortunately, since it rained so much, we weren’t able to get out on the lake as much as we have in the past. Tuesday was great though and we found a fun place on the water we hadn’t been to before...Jolly Rogers. Yummy lunch and a fun place for kids.
The only negatives were hit and miss internet access, which I’m sure the owners can’t help, and the narrow drive and boat ramp at Alhonna was a challenge. Great people there to help though.
We always love our time at the lake. This year was no exception.
Great location and property for a large family
This property really accommodated my family's needs. It is on a nice, secluded cove and had great dock for my boat. Convenient to the popular parts of the lake, dam and shopping. Really nice community pool that we virtually had to ourselves. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was adequately stocked. Lots of usable space with a large screened in porch and a concrete playroom for the kids in the basement. I didn't give it 5 stars because my family watches a lot of TV and only 1 TV had access to the cable channels and those were very limited. All the other TVs could only use Roku to access channels like Netflix. However, Roku uses their WIFI and the WIFI went out about every afternoon for a few hours so - no Roku or internet unless you used your cell service. We never determined whether it was a problem with the internet provider or the house modem, but since it came back on everyday, the problem was likely with the internet provider.
Great house, great hosts
It was really hot the first week in July so we spent a lot of time floating in the water, which was surprisingly clean and the cove nicely protected from boat chop on the main channel. The shared dock can be quite busy with swimmers, some of whom like their music LOUD. The house comfortably sleeps 14 and the bathrooms all have double sinks to better accommodate families sharing one of the three spacious bathrooms. The master suite is fabulous! I would rate 5 stars, but the dining table sat only 7 with 2 more seats at the kitchen counter. The chairs are all higher and were not comfortable for our older guests with cranky knees or short stature. There is a table and comfortable seating for 6 on the deck, but It was too hot to eat meals out there. The deck had great seating for taking our morning coffee. Suggest guests bring or rent a card table for evening games. The Mendell's were great hosts, helpful and responsive.
Great Vacation Rental
Our family really enjoyed the villa. It is so roomy and had everything that we needed for our group. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch. It is a great place to stay!
Thanks Lisa and Jeff!
Big, beautiful, relaxing. Owners nice and helpful.
Lovely area and property
Had a great family vacation. There were 13 of us, (8 adults and 5 kids) and this home comfortably fit us. We had a great time swimming off the dock, paddleboarding in the cove, and swimming at the pool. The home had most everything we needed, was clean, and the owners responded quickly if we had any questions/concerns. The lake is beautiful and so much fun.
Our home is located in a quite cove off the Main Channel of The Lake of The Ozarks. With a boat slip available to rent, you family can store your boat just steps away from your villa. The cove is large enough to tube or just hang out in the water by your dock.
