I almost don't want to say how amazing this place was because I want to keep it as my husband and I's perfect little secret getaway... but I also want people to know that it was exactly what we needed and then some!
I found this place on the way to a last minute vacation and the owner was very responsive, friendly and amazing to work with. Fortunately for us the vacation rentals weren't highly populated this time of year because it's still considered cold there, at 50 - 60 degrees, but it was good enough to ride side by sides at Sand Hollow and go spend a day at the lake, which are both 5 minutes away. I realize in high volume times it will be harder to get this spot at the last second, if not impossible due to its prime location, but we got lucky.
When we arrived I was very impressed with the community of newer and very well done vacation rentals situated perfectly outside Sand Hollow State park where there are so many activities and beautiful sites to see.
The rental itself had plenty of parking and also a 2 car garage which made us feel better about leaving our truck and 20' trailer all day while we went sight seeing and rode the dunes.
It was breathtaking to walk into with its vaulted ceilings and open floor plan that had so much space and light. It would have been perfect for a large family or 2 to come and stay but it was even perfect for just 2 of us and our 2 yorkies.
There was a large TV in the front room that could be angled to see from the hot tub that sat in an alcove at the back of the place with an open air area and we watched some of the super bowl there. We watched three rest from the couch in the front room and that was great, too.
The entire place was well decorated and stocked with everything we needed as far as dishes and pans. I felt so at home that even after 4 days I wasn't ready to leave and that's saying a lot because I get home sick very easily.
All of the bathrooms were very nice and the main one had a decent sized jetted bath and a glass door shower that were very nice.
Outside the back door was a walking trail that we walked our dogs around and would be perfect for early morning jogs or later afternoon walks.
I CANNOT say enough about this place and I would HIGHLY recommend... however, I would also love to keep it our little secret, too!
