You'll love the open floor plan and tasteful décor of this cottage located in the popular Flora-Dale Association.

Cool Silver Lake Getaway #3
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Nice modern feel home. Managers are great.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in the back of the sub, so you will need to drive the ~ half to 3/4 mile to the community grounds (pool, tennis, etc.). The house is very nice. The owners have it decorated to feel quite 'home like' without having so much on tables to cause you concern about accidents (I didn't move a thing). Front yard is beautiful grass and the firepit is full soft Silver Lake sand.

Has Wi-fi at the house.

Has washer / dryer

Sheets are on the bed

Bath towels are there

Soap, toiletries, dish soap, trash bag, all there... bring your own towels for the beach and pool.

3 BR's with 1 bed in each.

HDTV in Living room

The Arnouts are a pleasure to deal with. We rented from them before. We had zero issues with anything on either visit, but if we did, I bet they'd be "Johnny on the spot."
