  • Great value for the price!

    "If you're looking for a 'get away from everyone and everything' property then this is the place to escape to. It's situated in a quiet gated community at the end of an inlet on Lake Hartwell. The property is perched high above the lake surrounded by trees, so nice and private. There is a steep path leading to and from the lake but my inlaws, who are in their 70s, managed to climb it each time with no trouble. We had 8 adults and our border collie staying and there were ample space for us all without feeling on top of each other. The house was clean and well stocked with kitchen utensils. Plenty of tables and chairs for us all to sit outside to eat. Nearest grocery store is about a 20 minute drive away (Ingles in West Anderson, offering great customer service!). If you don't fancy cooking, we highly recommend J Peters in Anderson (30 minuete drive) awesome food and service. All in all a fab week in a great place and location, even our dog loved it, spending most of his time swimming with us in the lake."

  • Outstanding!!! The property, the location and the owners made this vacation the BEST.

    "We were a group of six. This was our first lake vacation and because we found this perfect rental home, it won't be our last. Prior to arriving at the rental, the owners were very responsive to our questions and made the dialogue easy. They provide great directions and instructions regarding the property and nearby towns and restaurants, to include places to access by boat. The upstairs AC acted up on the 2nd day we were there and the owners had someone there to fix it within the hour. Amazing response and service which was very much appreciated. The home is just as upscale lake home with a cozy lake feel. The house was open and spacious allowing us room to prepare meals, grill, or play cards at the kitchen table while still keeping an eye on the TV to watch the Olympics. The master bedroom made me feel like I was in a resort and the king size bed was soooo comfortable. The morning sunrise off of the porch overlooking the water is a must-see. Two refrigerators made it ideal to keep all our beverages cold in one fridge and the other for food. (Ingles nearby for all your grocery needs.) We opted to take our own boat with us and could easily keep it tied up to their dock. We spent time daily at "party island" (very near their home) which offers a beach area to hang out. Being the end of summer, there weren't but a couple of boats out there at a time so we made our own party. So so much fun! We had great expectations to go hiking and tubing and trying out 211 Main St Cafe. We did research prior to our arrival (all nearby) but we couldn't pry ourselves away from the house. We did save a day for whitewater rafting down the Chattooga (Southeastern Expeditions). It was only like 45 min to 1 hour away from the lake house. Fun time. Four of us drove to Cherokee one night to try out Harrah's casino. Definitely don't waste your time on that trip. (Save your money for Las Vegas). We went to eat one night at Nami (an Asian Bistro) in Anderson at the Portman Marina. Now that is definitely worth the time and money. Delicious! Lake Hartwell and the Wertz provided a fabulous and relaxing vacation. This was our first VRBO rental and I couldn't have been more impressed. Jeff and Lana have a beautiful home and are very generous to open it up to strangers. Next trip to Lake Hartwell...this is the place to stay. You will not regret it!"

  • Wonderful House...Great owners to work with....Perfect location!!

    "My family and I just returned from a fabulous time at Makin' Waves! This has been our second trip to the house and we loved every minute there! The cove where the house is located is beautiful and calm. Sitting on the deck looking down at the lake was my favorite thing to do when we were not on the boat. The house was equipped with everything we needed...and we loved the added feature of the ice machine! Renee was wonderful and timely to work with!! Thank you!!"

  • Great vacation home

    "We just spent a week at this home. Had a wonderful time. The home is very spacious, clean and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed the game room at night. The view of the lake is gorgeous and I always had my morning coffee on the back deck. It's not the sunny side at that time of day. So nice! The dock was easy to use and water was deep there. Will definitely be back !"
