About Nancy Andreason
I (Nancy) grew up in Oklahoma. From my parents, I learned the value of hard work. Additionally, I learned to take time to "play" and enjoy my family. We live in Orange County, where i am a Realtor--a career I thoroughly enjoy. This career, certainly wasn't in my plans. Steve, my husband was a dentist in Long Beach and I managed his practice. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease and has had it now for about 15 years. P.D is the "kiss of death" for a dentist. We have five "children" and the oldest was starting college when he was diagnosed. What to do . . . what to do . . . I had a few years to "think about it" and decided to get my real estate license. About this time, we took a huge "leap of faith" and built this river house. We have had so many great times and memories with our family and friends over the years. We now have a grand baby and she had her first trip to the river recently and loved the boat! For the past several years, we host the young single adult group from our Huntington Beach Church (we are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -- aka Mormon). It brings such pleasure to share our home with others. Since we aren't able to come out to our river home as much as we would like, we have shared it with friends and have rented to their friends.
Nancy Andreason purchased this House in 2006
Why Nancy Andreason chose Big River
I have always enjoyed water sports. I knew if I could get my husband on a "wave runner" he would be hooked! Yes, he was! (This was 20 years ago) We had heard various friends talking about going out to the "river". I said to Steve--where is this river? And . . . we need to find it! Yes, indeed, we did. A good friend had a river home and opened it up to friends-- we booked a few weekends and our family thoroughly enjoyed it. .
What makes this House unique
Of course we think we have the best lot and view of the river. The sunrises and sunsets from our 2nd story balcony/patio are beautiful. Sometimes in August, a storm will roll in and it is awesome to see the clouds, lightening and hear the thunder. Remember, I grew up in Oklahoma--I love this type of weather! It was an amazing process to build-- selecting the lot--making sure we had deep enough water out front for the dock/boat. We drew out the plans--exactly how we wanted it laid out, then had an architect draw them up, hired an excellent builder and the rest is history. (That is the shortened version)
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
I loved my stay, the house was awesome. The spot on the beach was great. The huge lawn and the game room were huge hits.
AMAZING HOME RIGHT ON THE RIVER!!!
This has been one of the best stays we have had. Home is amazing. It accommodated all of our large family with plenty room left, house was very clean upon arrival, and it was stocked with all we needed. Nancy was very friendly and helpful through out our stay. We were very happy and had lots fun. We definitely plan to go back because of the great experience we had there. Money well spent!!!
MAGNIFICENT Property 5 Star all the way!
Magnificent riverfront property ! This home was perfect exactly what my family and I were looking for. The layout, space and gathering areas are perfect for large families. The owners are wonderful people to deal with, look forward to coming back soon.
Wow! Amazing home on a quieter part of the river.
After renting other places along the river over the past 4 years for our annual family river trip, we finally found the perfect place! This beautiful house is large, clean, well appointed, stocked with anything you would need (except food of course) and, with the 2 bunk rooms, accommodates many people. Plus, it's on a quieter part of the river (Parker Strip is too busy for us). Nancy was so easy to work with and available via text any time I needed her. Our search is over. We will, without a doubt, rent this place every year!
Best house on the river!
We come to Parker every year for spring break. This year we had a larger group so we decided to book this wonderful home. Upon arrival the house was extremely clean. The maintenance man was there changing some light bulbs outside, he was very helpful showing us the property and gave us his card which became a godsend later on in the week when we had some issues with our boat. We had fun playing on the massive lawn and the kids, and adults had fun playing games in the game room every night. We were literally the only boats on the river most of the time so it was very easy to wakeboard, wakesurf and pull the kids on the tube without having to worry about other boats. We thought we were going to miss just being able to boat to the restaurants on the other side of the dam, but we soon realized that it was nice to just trailer over to that side (15 min drive) when we wanted to do that ( the river on this side is low on Thursdays which we were told in advance) and then come back to this amazing, quiet house. It is so well stocked with everything you could ever hope to have that all of our guests in the house couldn't quit commenting about it! If you have a large group this is the best house on the river by far to rent, you will not be disappointed.
Awesome Family Vacation!
What a great river house! First of all Nancy and Steve were wonderful to work with! So helpful and kind. The house is amazing! Very roomy, clean and comfortable. We had more than enough room to accommodate 3 families. The amount of bedrooms with bathrooms was perfect and the bunk room was ideal for all of the kids! The kitchen is a dream, way better than what we have at home. The deli fridge was an amazing feature and such an asset when it was so hot! We always had cold drinks ready to go! The dock was also such a benefit! We loved being able to leave the boat in overnight! Overall this place is definitely 5 star and hope to return someday.
Beautiful desert area to ride ATV's and motorcycles. There are areas in the desert to practice your shooting skills. Lake Havasu is also close by.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
If there are over 25 guests, the nightly rate will be increased. Our personal items such as boat, personal water craft, atv's., etc are NOT to be used. Rentals are available in Parker. We do have extra life vests, wake boards, skis for guest use. The kitchen is well stocked, plates, glasses, silverware, baking pans, skillets, etc. We also have condiments in the fridge. If you prefer using paper goods, you can purchase them in town. The river fluctuates--goes up and down--water is released from the damn above. Thursdays are "low" water days--so plan accordingly. If you want to go out on the water early--there is an area of Lake Havasu which is close by--about 16-18 miles from the house. There are beaches/picnic areas. It's quite nice. Couldn't figure out why there was a huge dirty area/stain on the carpet in the bedroom. As it was cleaned, up came the dog hair--apparently, the dog had an accident. It clearly states No Pets and this is the reason. If one is brought, the deposit is forfeited automatically. Additionally, a "guest" helped themselves to our ATV's, took our car, out of the garage, which was blocking the ATV's. Our battery drip chargers were not re-attached to either the car or the ATV's. Again--Personal Items are Not to be used and the deposit will be automatically forfeited. That takes a lot of nerve and ruins it for our future guests.
