About Elaine

I have been a residential realtor around the St Cloud area for the last 16 years. Prior to this I was a travel consultant and tour guide which enabled me to meet many people and travel the world. I have enjoyed using my 'Casa Del Mar' lake home for entertaining and for just kicking back for an evening of relaxation and watching sunsets after a hard day of work. I hope to meet many new friends with this new venture in my life.

Elaine purchased this house in 2002

Why Elaine chose Kimball

I thought it was a great idea to own a lake home just 15 minutes from my city home. I can drive out here anytime, be it for just an hour or overnight. I also liked the affordable smaller size and the potential for fixing it up to create a feel of the tropics with a European flair.

What makes this house unique

The location enables me to be close to many activities and local events around the St Cloud area. Fishing for pan fish and bass on this smaller lake is good and swimming in the clean water off the sandy beach is wonderful. And of course I can't forget the amazing sunsets!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! The fishing and swimming beach was beautiful! The actual lake home was so nicely decorated and we loved the marble tiles! We enjoyed our stay.

So cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Cute and well equipped cabin with spectacular sunset views. The sunset photos shown are no exaggeration. We couldn't stop taking pictures. Nice to be able to moor a boat at the private dock. We enjoyed our stay, and will definitely consider staying there again.

Lake fun

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Casa del Mar in July. I loved it. Beautiful lake, comfortable cottage, and close to grocery stores and other shopping if needed. The cottage is nicely decorated and has a variety of amenities. I really enjoyed kayaking the lake and fishing from the dock. There is a sandy shoreline, but it does get muddy just past the dock. The water was incredibly clear, though.

Our only complaint was the proximity to a well traveled highway. The drone from the road was rather overwhelming at first but we got used to it. Despite that, we had a wonderfully relaxing time at the lake. I would recommend this cabin.

Cas Del Mar!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Minnesota. Casa Del Mar is the perfect setting! If you are looking for a getaway and want to enjoy all the amenities this is the place for you. There's fishing, boating, swimming etc.

It was a bit too cold for most of us to be out on the water but it didn't stop by husband from fishing and licenses were avaialbe at the local Walmart. There was a total of 6 of us and we were very comfortable and the house it spotless (an added bonus).

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Casa Del Mar was over the top! The photos are extremely accurate of the property and Elaine has thought of all the ammenities to make your stay complete. I watched the loons and listened to their songs,as well as watched bald eagles fish in the lake. I took kayak trips around the lake every morning and my family loved the paddleboat and fishing right off the dock. Elaine has prvided more than enough lawn chairs for company as well as board games if you should have a rainy day. Iti is clean, beautiful, and she provides more than what she promised in the description! I was able to make many forever memories at Casa and will definitely return. I highly recommend this property. Thank you Elaine!

Well equipped cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Del Mar. Our favorite thing to do there was getting out on the paddle boat. Our daughter had a blast with the small fish by the dock. Also, it was great to have the indoor games when it was raining out! The decor was very nice. Hopefully we have the chance to come back when it isn't going to rain!

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the Christmas holiday at Casa Del Mar! One word describes our stay, FABULOUS! The home was perfect for our stay and after the kids went to bed, the view of the snow on the lake was so romantic! My husband has gone from the typical Southern sceptic to lover of all that is cold and white. Elaine was wonderful and made my family feel right at home. We had so much fun....can't wait to return to Casa Del Mar, for Christmas and it is definitely on the short list for our yearly anniversary trip! Thank you so much!
