hillcrest12

Even though the weather could have been better, we did enjoy our vacation. We loved the house! The kids loved the hot tub (or hot bath according to our son)! We have rented many houses in many locations, and this has been my favorite house by far. I was sad to leave. We did find things to do and places to go to keep us busy. Crystal Water Villas was a pleasure to work with. – By kasbuchert from Oswego of IL on 5/2011. Stayed at Hillcrest.

Sues12

We just returned from our trip and our stay at Sue’s Serenity. We were very pleased with the accommodations, location and facilities. It made our stay very enjoyable. The weather was great, the fish were biting and everything was perfect. Thank you for the hospitality. – By BK, Wichita, KS on 5/2011. Stayed at Sue’s Serenity.
