About John Malixi

I have 35 years of hotel and travel experience with various chains like Hyatt, Marriott, Hilton, etc. I am well aware of what the guests expect and try and deliver the best experience.

John Malixi purchased this house in 2009

Why John Malixi chose Virginia

The lake house is located in one of the widest part of Lake Anna and very safe for boating and swimming. The house has the charm and amenities that most people will need. The great room has a great view, the dining room table sits 10 and so, everyone can sit while having dinner.

What makes this house unique

Launch your boat at the Lake Anna Beach Marina located less than a quarter mile away. One may also watch live shows on summer weekends or take in great food from the same location.

You can bike from the lake house to Moody road where traffic is not busy. Go to Lake Anna winery within minutes or just stay at the lake house and enjoy the hot tub while gazing at the stars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Our stay at John's home for our family of 10 was fantastic. The house was a perfect size for us. We had everything we needed. It was nice that we all could eat together at the large dining table. We had good weather most of the days so we spent time in the water swimming, floating on rafts and sunning on the inviting dock. We really enjoyed the deck and chairs and star gazing on the clear nights was fun. Our plans for roasting marshmallows over the fire pits got rained out but we enjoyed ping pong games and playing cards inside. Everything was very clean and well kept. John was exceptionally responsive and informative and we had the pleasure of meeting him Saturday afternoon. The entire experience was a pleasure and I highly recommend staying and I hope we can return in the future.”

Fantastic! Great Lake house

The lake house has a hot tub where you can watch the stars and view of the lake. House was well appointed and John was very attentive to any of our questions and needs.

Very Nice Stay on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the house for a week at the end of summer and had a very nice time staying at the property. Overall the seller was very easy to communicate with and flexible with our requests. The house location was nice with a decent dock for the boat. The only drawback was the property cleanliness - some of the bathrooms and rooms had lots of dents, dings, and dust. The main areas looked to be clean but the house really needed a "deep cleaning" in my opinion. I would stay there again FYI.

Wonderful Time, Quiet location

  • 5 of 5

First time our family has actually vacationed at Lake Anna. House is located on a wonderful location of the lake. Quiet and simple. The house had all you need to do to be entertained with pool, and ping pong. We look forward to another stay come next year. We recommend this as a choice for others.

Great house, clean and functional,amazing location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. The best part is the lake access - down a gentle slope to a sandy area with a great dock for fishing or docking your boat. The house is kept very clean and updated. All bedrooms are large and the master suite is especially nice. The unfinished basement is nice for young kids to run around. We found the location to be ideal, on the easternmost part of the lake - this means less boat traffic and a short drive from the I95 exits. The few minor items that the owner may want to look into:

- The washing machine seems to be partially broken and will sometimes get stuck on the fill cycle.

- The internet is painfully slow (but this is typical of the Lake Anna area)

- There are not enough plates, bowls, cups in the kitchen, and what is there is very fragile. The owner should invest in a large set of "unbreakable" dinnerware.

Finally - just for good measure:

- The neighbor to the right side of the house (as you look towards the lake) is a complete jerk. He came down to shout at my young kids because they were stepping on "his property". Don't make the mistake of stepping on the wrong side of the hedges or on the wrong dock - or you're in for a rude awakening.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback! I was not aware of the washing machine problem and I'll have that fixed right away. Fortunately, that "Jerk" if a neighbor of ours has already relocated to Tennessee. She just has nothing better to do, so she's just not a nice person. I have replaced the silver and will also replace the plates with non-breakable ones. Thanks for your great feedback and suggestions! John

Awesome experience

We rented the house a couple of weeks ago, the view of the house was great and we really enjoyed all the facilities and accommodations the house had. We really enjoyed our stay there!

Beware! Avoid this property!

  • 1 of 5

My family and I have rented numerous properties at different areas in the country.

This property was the first, and MOST NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE we have ever encountered.

First, the property is NOT CLEAN. Every surface of the kitchen is coated in a sticky residue. The couch is dirty and clearly has white dog hair on it (even though the owner refuses to have pets at the property?). Furthermore, this home has a serious ANT INFESTATION. At any time there are >100 ANTS on the countertop! The vibrations from the dishwasher bring out even more from the woodwork! Upon returning to our own home, WE FOUND THE ANTS HAD INFILTRATED OUR OWN BELONGINGS! There is no doubt that this requires the employment of a professional exterminator.

Secondly, The owner didn't live up to his end of the bargain. We paid him extra for towels for the week. Were there towels when we arrived? No. He then denied that we had even paid him for the towels! Make sure to have your contract with you! Also, The OWNER CONTROLS THE THERMOSTAT from home. The WIFI is weak/nonexistant - you will give up on trying to access the internet within 2 days.

Finally, the properly is very POORLY MAINTAINED. It was obvious the owner did nothing to prepare the home for this season. Upon arrival the lawn had clearly not been mowed in >3 weeks, if at all since winter. EVERYTHING IN THIS HOME IS ON THER VERGE OF COLLAPSE. For example, all of the furniture is extremely flimsy (I watched as one chair gave way under my sibling while eating dinner). All of the fire alarms had exhausted their batteries - THUS ALL THE ALARMS WERE GOING OFF WHILE WE WERE THERE! A worn door handle cracked off while we were using an outside door. Ordinarily, this would necessitate a simple repair. THAT DIDN'T STOP THE OWNER FROM KEEPING OUR ENTIRE SECURITY DEPOSIT! I cannot understate this: THIS PLACE IS IN COMPLETE DISREPAIR!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, this renter yanked the handle off of the sliding door and is retaliating with this review. I've been renting this property for over 3 years and nobody has managed to yank off a handle from the sliding door. I explained to the renter that I was going to have it repaired and will only charge them for the repair and parts. They were adamant about saying that they were not responsible. Towels were not mentioned in the linen rental however, I quickly delivered fresh one's the morning after they arrived (I guess they did not mention that in the review) At this point, nobody mentioned anything about sticky residue in the kitchen nor ants. At this time of the year with the change in weather, ants do appear but not to the extent the renter has described. I did not want to have it professionally sprayed when I have renters coming in. I will have it done if I have at least a week before anybody comes. I just changed all the batteries of the fire alarm and they didn't mention anything about it while I was there for at least 4 hours mowing the grass! Internet runs at 12 MB and is the highest you can have in that area. I have nor any renters have not had any problems with the internet. Again, they did not mention anything when I was there. The airconditioner as well as heat is controlled in the house and the system is brand new installed Fall of 2013! I'm sorry that some people like to exaggerate but like I said, all I wanted is to repair what they admitted they damaged.
