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.”

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
