Chelan is a very Popular Tourist Destination for many reasons. It is a spectacular wine and culinary delight plus it's an amazingly beautiful place to live or visit; the Mountains, vineyards and pristine lake makes it charming beyond measure! Advanced reservations are always recommended.
The key to Fantastic FUN at Lake Chelan is, Water Access and unless you own water rights, which we do, it can be challenging to gain access into the Lake, barring, over crowded City and State parks.
Our Villa not only offers incredible views central to all of the major hot spots in Chelan, but our U-shaped dock is one of the largest permitted docks on Lake Chelan. It's perfect for sun bathing and it's ideal for swimming, boating, jet skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding etc.
For added convenience, we have provided two staircases that offer easy lake access; one is located on the dock itself and one from the shore line, or the sandy beach. Additionally, we have also provided a three seat custom bench on the dock for lounging purposes. Its not uncommon to see people spread a blanket and picnic on the dock. Bon Apetit'
Thank you for letting me know that we need to replace light bulbs for the outdoor stair case, our maintenance guy is usually right on all of that stuff, but I will let him know immediately. I hope that you were directed to all of our outdoor lighting, we do have plenty of outdoor lighting along the walls, fence, and all of the way to the beach access, we also have dramatic lighting for all of the mature palm trees on site which makes it breathtaking at night for a beautiful private Oasis!
All private properties, hotels, motels and even camp grounds must have set check in check & out times or guests will overlap without sufficient time to clean properly in between guests. We have tried in the past, to allow early check in and check out times but, it is not fair to those who have to arrive on time from Airports and or private transport and then have to wait for previous guests to depart; If circumstances are such that a guest MUST have allowances, we accommodate them for a minimum up fee, so we can make their coming and going as comfortable as possible.
I did want to point out that there have been many occasions when I have stumbled upon pictures on "Pinterest" taken from our guests at Beach Bella Vista or our Romantic Casita, including beautiful pictures from our private community beach. The views are spectacular any where on the grounds or from the beach or within the gated guarded private resort community of Atami, morning, noon or dusk, so I'm not sure why you were unable to get sunset photos? Some of my very BEST photos are taken from said property.
Our goal is to make you feel at "HOME" right away and we respect your space and privacy while you enjoy your Villa in paradise without any fuss at entry, during your stay or at the time of your departure. We treat you like we ourselves would want to be treated.
I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay and I'm happy that our list of fun things to see and do while at Lake Chelan was appreciated and useful.
The pictures of the Villa and Dock and Beach are EXACTLY as advertised. Guests have use of Green Dock Beach, plus our Dock/and or buoy plus our beach access stairs for an easy lake entrance. So your argument does NOT stand.
Our rental house and Villa are separate units, even parking is separate, east and west of the property. The Villa faces East for an epic all lake view, which is what our guests want.
I have been in the rental industry now for almost 10 years and we have won National and International awards for several of our Properties as well as for our Customer Service & Amenities. Our #1 goal is to respect guest privacy - I trust that your lack of PRIVACY was from arriving with 5 ADULTS when the Villa was clearly suited for 2 ADULTS. No other guests, to date, has difficulty interpreting that "Villa for 2," means Villa for Two Guests.
