About Marie Cardaras

I went to Cal Poly Pomona, and received in 1991 a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science. I have a great love for animals. I am currently married to the love of my life for 23 years and have 3 very handsome boys. I currently live in Arcadia, Ca. Our family pets consist of 2 Labradors dogs, 1 calico cat. I have a pure madness for the outdoors!

Marie Cardaras purchased this house in 2001

Why Marie Cardaras chose Holiday Shores

This property belonged to my Mom before me, and she was the original owner. This property has been in the family for 37 years +.

What makes this house unique

The thing I like the most about this place is the location of the house. It's right on the water and the views are to die for. I always come home feeling refreshed and invigorated when I leave this place.It has a stress-free feel.

Amazing home in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My children and I had a great time at this beautiful home. The home is very well maintained and wonderful inside and out. We made friends with a few ducks, as we fished off the private boat dock. My son and I enjoyed playing pool in the grand room. The views from all levels are amazing. The area is quiet this time of year and not too much river traffic. Weather was perfect, so we really enjoyed sitting out on the lower level or upper balconies. We would love to visit again. Highly recommended.

Great place to be by nature and real life.

  • 5 of 5

We had plenty of room and all the amenities for a pleasant stay. The upper bedroom suite was a great place to view the sunrises and ducks playing in the beautiful River. The Lower patio level has a great place to barbeque , relax and watch humming birds enjoy the nectar from the flowers near by.

The center suite has an open patio to have a coffee and watch the cooing Doves as they romance there way around the railings in the evening

Thanks Marie It was great and hope to be back.

This is our second year staying at this location and this year was even better than last year. I was nervous about leaving my brand new Axis boat out on the river all night as the river's water depth will get shallow over night, but the incredibly nice and helpful owners assured me that my boat would be fine. They were absolutely right and my boat stayed in several feet of water all 8 nights. This house is one of a kind. I would never stay anywhere else because the water depth is such a major factor with a V-drive boat. Every morning we woke up to wakboarding and wake surfing on glassy water. You can get great runs for a mile up or down the river from this AWSOME house at any time. I don't have to worry about the water depth even with thousands of pounds of ballast on board at 6:00 am.

The owners supply this house with everything you could imangene. This year their dock had huge bumpers on it which was super convienant and kept my boat from getting scratched. The greatest memories with my family have been at this house. There's just so much to do and the house is so increadably specious that no one ever feels cramped. Playing air hockey and pool while looking out at the beautiful river was so epic. It's a place where family's can really bond. It really is the perfect vacation destination. My wife and I pay for it and inturn, we get family members out on vacation that would have normally stayed home all summer. It's so amazing to see kids and adults have the time of their lives. I guess my wife and I are stuck with continuing this tradition but that's alright with us. We can't wait until next year. Thank you so much to the Cardaras family for renting out your FANTASTIC home.

Thank you so much for making your home available to us. Everything was right where you said it would be. The house was ready to go the second we walked in the door. Your river maps were a big help for us in the mornings and having the dock, sweet. What a fantastic trip we had, this house has everything you need. I would suggest visitors only bring the clothes you need and any must have necessities. There are plenty of places to shop for food and lots restaurants near by. I'm a Black Bear Diner kind of guy. We came here for the water sports and weren't disappointed.

Marie is great and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to have a relaxing vacation on the Colorado River. Looking forward to another opportunity on the River.

Marie, thanks again.
