“A good choice”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Pluses, great house layout, quiet end of the lake, Hot Tub worked fine, Appliances all worked. Minuses, outside needs to be power-washed to clear away the spiders, Screens need to be repaired on both screen rooms.
Overall we had a good two weeks. The house is big enough for a large group to spread out. It is very handy to Oakland where we shopped for groceries and other things. Neighbors were nice and well behaved. Check in and out was super fast, but we were not there during a busy week. We had two maintenance requests and both were handled same day. This is a typical rental that is abused by transient renters and even though the house is only five years old, it is really worn and tired. Given some TLC, this would be a top notch property. I am going to mark as a yes would recommend, but with the caveat that it needs cleaning inside and especially out.
