Our first words on entering the Villa was WOW! This is an amazing property that had something for everyone in our family. Mornings by the lake, afternoons by the pool, as well as the spaciousness of the house, we couldn't have been happier. It was especially great for everyone to sit together for dinner each night.
Beautiful property with an amazing support staff that went above and beyond to make our trip fantastic. Can’t wait to come back again.
Great Family Reunion House
This was our second stay at this home (first was 2017). We loved it. Plenty of room; owner and staff were great. Highly recommend this home.
Our Family's Big Year Celebration
This year was to be one of many big celebrations for our family---50th anniversary; 80th,70th, 60th, 21st and 20th birthdays; high school and college graduations--- and we found the perfect spot to do this at "The Villa". There were 20 of us from 18 to 80 and it was unanimous that we must do this again. There is plenty of room for everyone inside and out. Although it was too hot to use the fire pit, sitting by the lake in the evening was really relaxing. The "Grands" enjoyed the media and game rooms and jet skiing. Everyone had great fun by the pool. Having the pontoon boat allowed us to get an overall view of the lake. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with lots of dishes, cutlery, small appliances, pots and pans, etc. Having so many refrigerators and an independent ice machine certainly came in handy. For 20 people another dishwasher would have been welcomed. Working with Andrea was a breeze. She answered all emails and calls efficiently and professionally. Hopefully we can figure out a time for the entire family to have another relaxing, fun filled, family week in 2020!
Got a crowd? This is the Place
Place was amazing! Preparation for our stay was perfect. We had all adults - and not a one was bored
A Wonderful Weekend Stay
We had another lovely stay at "The Villa." The house was furnished with everything you need and more. The game room & move room are always a favorite. The kitchen and dining area has ample of space to cook & dine & visit. This house is truly the perfect spot for multiple families or groups wanting to be together during the day, but then have their own space to sleep at night. The bedrooms & bathrooms are both very nice and should meet everyone needs. Some are huge! The setting by the lake is s beautiful added bonus as well as the ample yard space for children to play too. We've come now to this home on 3 different occasions. We are always well taken care of by the management group too.
This home offered the total package! You have a beautiful home that can accommodate grandparents (handicap accessibility) plus extended family with room to spare. There was so much for every age to do indoor and out. The pool is beautiful and convenient, but the view of the lake is the best. Having a variety of restaurants and shopping close by is very convenient. I'm looking forward to our next visit!
This is a perfect home for family (and extended families) to gather and enjoy each other's company, as well as all the amenities that Harbor Club and Lake Oconee have to offer. There are plenty of wide open spaces for all to gather, as well as warm cozy nooks. It is great to be with family but it's also nice to be able to sneak away for some alone time. So many gorgeous views of the lake and beautiful sunsets. It's great having the pool too (for those who don't want to swim in the lake). And if it rains, no problem, the game room on the lower level will keep the kids (of all ages) entertained. We had several great meals out too--Harbor Club's restaurant, as well as da Carrados, and Blu Culina. We also enjoyed the golf at Harbor Club--beautiful course. I would definitely recommend this gem for our next family get together.
I want to thank the property Manager Andrea for taking time to show me this home before we booked it. We are looking for a large home with activities for all age groups. The kids and teenagers will love the pool and the older adults with love the outdoor kitchen area so we can stay in the shade and still watch the kids. The game room and theater will be great for night time activities. They are doing a lot of remodeling so It will be like a new home when we book next summer. Again, Andrea thank you so much. We fell very comfortable booking for next year knowing that you responded to our request so soon. Look out Lake Oconee, our grandkids are coming!
I must thank the owner and Andrea. The owner was actually there on the day of my visit and she was very graceful. The house is simply gorgeous but even more so, they have thought of everything - from the ice maker, outside grills, outside shower....We had several families come together and had more than enough space. Downstairs was our gathering area. The fellows were most impressed - poker table and pool table. We will visit again. We spent night out at the fire pit and this was so pleasant. The outdoor kitchen was a life saver - the men didn't mind staying on the grill :) Oh, I almost forgot - the elevator was perfect for the elders. Thank you again for an awesome stay.
First allow me to thank Andrea and the owner! Andrea was a delight to work with to prepare for our annual ministers' retreat. From arranging time for us to see the property prior to retreat and throughout the retreat. Andrea was just a phone call or email away and very helpful. As for the property, the pictures do not capture the beauty of the Villa, the property or the lake. This property had everything we needed, from enough space for 20 grown people to have peace and quiet, to relax, reflect, and have some fun. Everyone was impressed and kept asking if we could come back next year and if we do can we rent the pontoon. In the morning on the dock watching the lake come to life was magnificent. It is good to be in a place that felt like home. As for the owner, you left no stone unturned in planning and decorating this home. You had everything, pool table, card table, video games, theater room, air hockey, heated pool and outdoor grill (my husband wants to build one at our home now) to name just a few of amenities. Thank you for sharing your blessings. May you continue to be blessed! I have a lot to say about this house but you all just need to come see for yourself but be prepared to be amazed!!! OMG the views!!!!
We had an AWESOME weekend. The house was beautiful and provided every amenity we could have wish for. The space accommodated all of our family/friends and provided space for everyone to really relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. Loved the kitchen, game room, spacious bedrooms and gorgeous dining room. Plan to visit again preferably when we can enjoy the pool and rent the pontoons. This home exceeded all our expectations. By far, the best property we have rented. My husband and I constantly talk about the property and recommend it highly especially for families. All of our guest (ages 14-91) had a great time. If you want to venture out for a while, you must visit the car museum nearby. This home is a MUST SEE. This was the perfect location and property for my husband's Birthday Celebration. We thank the owner and Andrea for helping us make the weekend one we will never forget.
Property was perfect for our outing. Plenty of room for everyone and everything was first class. All our guest were impressed with the accomidations and didn't want to leave. We decided to eat in every night as the kitchen was well equipted and where everyone decided to hang out. Neighborhood was quite and extremely wll maintained. Outside was just as impressive with the heated pool, outdoor kitchen, dock, and well groomed. The Lake is awesome and the dock became the favorite gather place before dinner. All the rooms are large, which was a surprise in a 10 bedroom house. I certainly look forward to returning to this house in the future.
Our group of 15 (from work) could not have been happier with your home! From the meeting areas, to the deck, to the pool, and waterfront -- all were perfect. There were many places to get away to relax or to mingle with others. The area provided some good places to eat out as well. Would highly recommend. We are coming back - have six more meetings scheduled!
We had a group of 20 adults and 12 kids between infant and 12 years old. This could not have been a better house for us. The house is just as it looks in the photos. It is very spacious and did not feel cluttered or busy even with our large group. The pool and lake access are ideal. The mattresses were a little worn but otherwise a very clean and well appointed home.
What an amazing time we had at the lake house. We celebrated mom's 70th surprise birthday and everyone loved the home, the pool, the grounds, and the lake! Cozy nooks, a super fun game room , and comfortable bedrooms. We would definitely rent again. If you are looking for that place where everyone, no matter what age is in love with the place-- this is it! Just amazing!
My husband and my immediate family stayed in this beautiful home for our wedding weekend. We had two days together to relax and enjoy each other's company before the big day and the house was a perfect setting for family dinners, games in the pool, and allowing the families to get to know each other better. The accommodations were exceptional, giving us all our own space and area to unwind and our nieces and nephews (ages 3 - 11) were never at a loss of things to do. On the big day, the house was perfect for some intimate photos of my husband and I with our "first look" and we got some great family photos down by the lake before heading off to the big event. Andrea was WONDERFUL through the whole rental process and helped to make our special weekend dreams a reality. The whole experience was better than expected and I wouldn't hesitate to come back for another family event!
Everything was GREAT! One thing to fix is a need to update ALL knives. Steak knife to chopping/cooking knives need replaced/updated. It's a shame to have great steaks in a great house/view but can't cut them.
Thanks so much for your response. We are so glad you choose our home "The Villa" for your stay at Lake Oconee. I'm sorry to hear the knives were not up to your standard for the week. My wife has gone and purchased new steak knifes for the home today. The last thing we would want is our guest to be worried about knives. Thanks so much for your input. We strive to have the Best Home on the Lake.
We spent a week at the Villa celebrating two 50th wedding anniversaries. The house is gorgeous and there was plenty of room for 22 of us. Andrea, the rental agent, was quick to respond to all inquiries before our arrival and during our stay. Loved the lake and the pool. We had various ages, from toddlers, teenagers, twenty somethings to parents and grandparents. There was something to do for everyone. We also hired a chef to come in and cook for us which helped make the trip that much more relaxing (Chef Toi). My only con will be the fee to heat/cool the pool. If I am spending that much for a stay, I want fees like that to be included. Don't nickel and dime me. Add another $20 to the daily rate and don't charge the extra fee. Overall, a wonderful week. Everyone left happy and relaxed.
Thanks for your review. I am glad you and your family enjoyed the Villa estate. We do charge extra for the heated and chilled pool do to the fact that not everyone wants that feature and it is so expensive to operate that system. I may be the only House on VRBO that even has a chiller on the pool. Most of our guest never have heard of a air conditioned pool. This is the first remark we have had about the price of heating and cooling the pool. Most guest say it is real cheap price for that service. You may be right in the fact that we need to go up on the price so it doesn't seem like a little or small fee that should be included. We do fill that our extra options are price fare. Like the Pontoon boats, Jet skis are all about half price of the local rental companies. We like to offer options on our houses that can not be found or compared to any other property.
With a total of 24 people over 6 nights, including 8 cousins aged 14 down to 3 months, our holiday turned out to be perfect. The home had everything we needed - plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces for everyone. The kids loved the loft area area, game room and the media room. The adults loved the different areas we could use for chatting, jigsaw puzzles, music and movies. The centrally located dining table that sat all of us easily was fantastic for our main meals, while the kitchen eating set up allowed for a more staggered schedule appropriate for breakfasts. For our Christmas lunch we needed both barbecues (for two geese) as well as both main ovens (turkey and filet mignon). We made use of the fire pit (for evening smores), swimming pool and the kayaks/canoes. Plus the nearby Ritz Carlton provided ice-skating. We made use of the local golf course as well as many walks around the area. A couple of things that we needed were provided quickly by the management team. We would definitely recommend this home for large family gatherings.
We had a small leadership retreat here for several days. The house is beautiful and well-appointed, and the location is perfect. Being able to have everyone eat together at the dining table and cook together in the large kitchen was integral to the teambuilding aspect. Andrea was extremely prompt and communicative and went the extra mile several times, and several members of our team wanted to book the house for personal trips at later points. Great experience!
I rented this wonderful lakefront house to host a working retreat with my team of managers. What an amazing house! So many "extras". They seemed to pay attention to the little things. We had great fun in the "game room" one night. The pinball machine was a favorite among the team. Also, the long dining room table made meals really cool. I really have no complaints.
This house is stunning and set up perfectly for multiple families. We had a wonderful experience and hope to visit again in the future. The game room downstairs was a huge hit for both adults and children. The pool and outdoor area was perfect for entertaining and grilling/eating. Waking up to the view and serenity of this property made for a wonderful vacation!
We spent a week here with approximately 30 family members. None of us were ready to come home. This property has everything you could ever need or want. Beautiful home with large pool, lake amenities, and plenty of places to relax. Huge, yet cozy at the same time. We met the owners and they were kind and laid back and extremely welcoming. Thank you so much for the memories!!!
We spent a wonderful week at The Villa in Lake Oconee for our semi-annual family reunion with 22 people. The owner was present to greet us when we arrived and gave us a detailed tour. He and his daughter could not have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. The house was immaculate, as were the grounds, and the views are spectacular. This is a beautiful gated community of luxury waterfront homes. It met all of our expectations for a high-end rental as far as furnishings, kitchen equipment, bedding etc. Nothing was broken and everything was thoroughly cleaned. The house has 6 A/C zones which was very helpful for those who prefer a range of temperatures and the owner explained how best to use the cooling system. Other highlights - the dining room table in the main foyer was spectacular and seated our entire family. The pool area is beautiful with plenty of seating in the shade, ceiling fans, grill area and refrigerator. There's a second grill on the deck. We rented a jet ski and pontoon boat directly from the owners during our stay and it was not only reasonably priced, but ready and waiting for us when we arrived. The owner showed us how to operate the boats. The kids had a great time fishing off the dock and caught plenty of catfish, crappie and bluegill. Golfers enjoyed convenient access to Harbor Club, a very nice course and fairly priced. We have high standards for our family reunions and The Villa exceeded them. Would not hesitate to rent this property or from this owner again.
We searched the entire country for the perfect lake house to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary...and the Villa was our pick. And we picked well. We wanted a house that was big enough that the whole family (16 of us - 8 kids between ages 5 and 12 - and 8 adults) could be comfortable sharing a house. This had more than enough space. We didn't even use all of the bedrooms. We also wanted a warm water lake (check) but also a pool (check). Lastly we wanted a house where my parents could get to all the floors and to the lake (check). The walk to the lake was a little steep for them but they managed just fine.Going back to the pool we kept saying it was like having our own private resort. One of the best parts of the week was hiring the owners (Mark and his daughter) to take us out waterskiing on their boat. This was so stress-free and they made it a ton of fun. People skied, knee boarded, wake boarded and tubed. Mark was happy to do whatever we wanted to do with our time. The house was also well stocked for cooking. We did not eat a single meal out, yet we had plenty of dishes, pans, pots, utensils, etc. My family loves to slow cook and there were even two of these. There were also plenty of spices (slow cookers, spices and many other kitchen gadgets I think have been left by previous guests, as we left some too). So check house before buying a ton of stuff. The house is truly beautiful and is really an exceptional home. We would love to go back every year.
We took our children and grandchildren here for our family vacation and could not have been happier. Everything was beautiful and there was so much to do. Andrea was so responsive whenever we needed her. Everyone agreed, best time ever!!!
Thank you for your review and kind words. We want everyone to have quality family time, and we hope you return soon!
Our family had a great time all week...plenty of befdrooms and bathrooms for 20 of us. So great to be able all sit at dinner together every night. Pontoon boat and jet ski rental really made everyone happy to be out on the water.
Thank you so much for your review. We hope you and your family will stay with us again soon!
We came to The Villa for a work retreat and it was the perfect place for us! Andrea did a great job on the front end communicating all details -- right down to the parking passes. House was beautifully decorated and well stocked with basic amenities. As soon as we stepped into the house, we immediately felt like we were at home. The entire house is quite spacious -- from the living spaces to the bedrooms. Our favorite was the long table that sat everyone comfortably. The Villa had something for everyone (lake, campfire, pool, golf (nearby), theater). The pictures provided are an accurate representation of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our entire team said they would come back in a heartbeat!
Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and we hope you do return again soon!
Our trip was a gathering of friends. Everyone was so impressed with the amount of space and the sleeping accommodations. The house was very clean and welcoming. I would definitely go back again!
Thanks Carol for your 5 Star review! We hope to see you again soon.
This is the 3rd year our company has rented this home for our retreat. This house is the perfect size to accommodate all of our employees. The large table in the center of the home is great to fit everyone for our meetings and meals. There is a large kitchen fully stocked with anything you could need and also plenty of counter space to serve. The home owner is very friendly and responsive. Right off the lake, the view is gorgeous and renting the pontoon boat is also always a big crowd pleaser.
Thanks Amanda for your 5 star review! we are so glad you choose our home and had such an enjoyable time. I'm glad it meet all your expectations and hope you will come stay with us again soon. The pontoon is always fun to go out on evening cruises as well. Thanks
This beautiful villa is perfect for team offsites with up to 20 people. The location is a bit remote, but it was possible to order catering nonetheless. The landscaping is gorgeous. The inventory in the kitchens was very good for a team cooking activity. Only the dishwasher takes too long, hence, you might have to wash dishes by hand. Great selection of games and activities (horse shoes, billiard, tabletop soccer, poker...) available. Very spacious and elegant looking, although a little old-fashioned (furniture). We had a great time there!
Thanks so much for your 5star Review! Glad the Villa home worked well for your team offsite meeting of 20 people. The Dishwasher you mentioned is a GE and the highest brand they make and had just been installed less than a month prior to your visit. Perhaps one of the guest had placed it on a slow cycle by accident. we try to keep new, upgraded appliances in all our properties. All of the furniture in the home is less than 4 years old with a few antique pieces throughout. It is decorated in a Traditional style as can be seen from our pictures online. Most comments we receive is that our pictures do not do the home justice.
This property is just as it looks in the photos-tastefully appointed and well maintained. The house is very clean, has nice linens, and a very well equipped kitchen with plenty of dishes and utensils for more than 20 people. Extra refrigerators and an independent icemaker came in handy. There is plenty of room to spread out inside and a great game/ media area downstairs if you are chased inside by an afternoon shower! There are lots of seating areas around the pool and undercover seating outside for those non sun worshipers. We enjoyed sitting by the lake in the evenings. it's a great place to celebrate those special family milestones. Having a dining table that seated all 20 of us in the evening was great. We hope to rent it again, finding the right time to get all 20 family members in one place is the predicament!
As so many other people have said - this property will not disappoint. A week after our stay we are still getting rave reviews from all the family who attended. There is something for everyone. I would recommend renting the jet skis and the pontoon. They provided fun for all throughout the week. Take a pontoon ride and find a quiet cove where everyone can take a swim in the perfect temps of the lake. Heavenly! As someone said this was like an all inclusive resort. No need to leave for any reason (although we did get in 2 rounds of golf. One at the communities Harbour Club Golf course. Very pretty and fun course to play. And also at "The Landing". Another great resort course). This house has it all. The house is huge and provides plenty of privacy for all but still has rooms to congregate for get togethers for talking and drinking and eating. A great room exists with a bar for all your drink making. An ice machine provides all the ice you'll ever need. Lots of refrigerators for storing food and drinks. Downstairs rec room kept the kids constantly entertained when they weren't in the pool or on the pontoon or the jet skis. Also kept the noise down there with them so upstairs was nice and quiet for the adults. On the last night we did s'mores for the kids at the fire pit down near the lake and were rewarded with fireworks display from across the lake. Most bedroooms were were very spacious with their own bathrooms. Only a few bedrooms were a bit smaller with shared bathrooms. The loft area, which serves as a bedroom, was huge with lots of privacy where the older kids loved to sleep. This was a vacation for our family that will go down in the history books as the best ever. Just a few notes for fellow vacationers. Make sure you bring lots of toilet paper (only one provided per room) and paper towels and soap. We had been warned by Andrea that minimum would be provided. Had only one minor issue with the grill and when we called it was fixed right away. The only real issue we had was with flies. Not sure why all the flies. The trash is picked up on Tuesdays and so the last occupants trash was still out in the driveway and there were lots of flies around the trash which kept coming into the house whenever a door was opened. Also flies would come in from the back door. We were constantly swatting flies mostly in the kitchen. We made sure we double bagged all our trash to help but never did get rid of all the flies. But still BEST VACATION EVER.
We had such a good time spreading ourselves around all the different rooms: a patio for the elderly to watch the kids in the pool, a game room with an awesome array of games (we never got to them all) a big Game of Thrones dining hall for accomodating everybody. enough TV rooms for Food Network and Nickolodeon to be on at the same time. Rent the pontoon. we used it to daytrip to Gaby's as well as have a private ceremony in a secluded cove. Only wish the figs had been ripe. another week later would have done it. highly recommended!
