Guest Reviews

It was awesome!! by DP 07/21/2014
It was awesome!! Beautiful house, fully stocked with beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, lots of comfy couches inside, great kitchen… A real joy to stay there.


We loved our stay at Lakeside Vista. by JW 07/09/2013
We loved our stay at Lakeside Vista. The house was exactly as it was advertised! A lovely home, well equiped kitchen, and all the amenities that we needed. Plenty of room for us to enjoy quality family time, but room to spread out for 'quiet' time, too.
Our family keeps using the term 'perfect' as they describe our vacation. Okay, maybe 94 stairs is not 'perfect', but we knew about that going into it and the beautiful beach was worth it! Actually, the stairs were even better than I imagined, they felt very safe and secure. And having all of the beach supplies (chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and even a grill) down at the beach was perfect!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week and hope to return again!
