Outside, you have a private dock and stairs that lead into a private swimming area. Sit in the sun, fish, or just hang out on the dock!

So the cook can view the lake and not have to worry about missing out on the fun and entertainment while they cook!

The front yard also has a fire pit to sit around and tell stories or enjoy some smores! The property also has a gas grill for cookouts.

Nearby boat ramp for putting your boat in and out of the water or marina for boat rentals, jet skis or sailboats. Restaurants, amusement park, water park and public beaches are all close by.

Why Shawn Syndergaard chose Arnolds Park

I purchased this property with family vacations in mind! I grew up around the lakes area my entire life and I wanted our two little boys to have the same amazing lake experiences as I did growing up. The property has been in my family for 40 years. The home is being completely remodeled and everything is brand new! From the floors to ceiling everything has been completely re-done. I will upload the new photos here in a month of two when the job is fully completed.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location!! This home is located directly on the lake. This home is located next to fillenworth beach and the central emporium. You are only two blocks away from all the fun, restaurants and night life!! And you are only four blocks away from the amusement park!! I honestly don't think you can get a better location. You have amazing panoramic sunset views! You can sit and watch the fireworks from the comfort of your own private patios and dock!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in this house. There is so much space. It is right in the heart of all the action of Arnold's Park IA.

Even better than the pics show

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 2 nights with extended family. The number of beds here is amazing. They have good quality linens and the bed I used was great. Living space is clean, comfortable and generous. Kitchen has room for a few cooks. The Arnold’s Park location is very central, while feeling secluded from hubbub.We chose a cold weekend in April, but the new deck leading to yard and dock gave us an opportunity to imagine lovely summer times. Since it was early in the season, we had a couple of small problems with access codes. I would assume that by the time summer rolls around, they will have it figured out.

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a girls weekend over Winter Games, and it was perfect! The location is walking distance to bars and restaurants. There was 15 girls and we all had plenty of room. Shawn was very easy to work with. Looking forward to staying here again!

Outstanding & Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property on West Okoboji Lake is perfect! The house overlooks Smiths Bay and when looking north you can see Okoboji Boat Works and the boating activity taking place. When you look northeast, you can see the Highway 71 bridge under which boats travel in order to move from West Okoboji to East Okoboji. A brief walk from the house to the boat dock allows one to view the crystal clear water of West Okoboji. While standing on the dock, one can look southwest and see the Central Emporium. The Koffee Kup breakfast shop is just six blocks from the house for outstanding breakfasts and coffee.

The beautiful house is well documented in the pictures provided by VRBO, but the size of the house and main level was terrific. The upstairs was very large with 4 bedrooms and a wonderful new bathroom with double sinks. Downstairs are the bunks with queen sized lower bunks and single sized uppers and the quality of all appointments in the space is much better than expected.

We had three related family groups, each with their own space, so each group could experience privacy when desired and come together on the main level whenever they wanted more company. One recommendation would be to add a small bathroom with shower on the lower level.

Our family had an OUTSTANDING TIME and hope to come back soon! Thank you for a wonderful way to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary!

Great Reunion Location!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house provided us with the perfect place to gather and relish in our memories of the time spent at Okoboji while growing up in the 40's, 50's and 60's. It was even better than the online pictures show....Very spacious, comfortable, crispy clean with ample kitchen supplies. Proximity to places of interest was a bonus. We all loved staying there. Thank you!

60th Birthday Surprise

  • 4 of 5

Ten women shared this lovely home to surprise one of them on their 60th birthday . . .even though there were actually 3 ladies that turned 60 that month! We had an exceptional time. Loved having the large living area to drink coffee in the mornings . . .the weather was HOT so we were not able to enjoy the fire pit as we had anticipated . . .however . . .we loved the back deck area and the close proximity to everything!

The house is located only four blocks away from the Arnolds Park Amusement park. Walk down for a nutty bar and take a ride on the roller coaster! Also ride the go carts or play some mini golf! The house is only two blocks away from the central emporium which has tons of good local clothing shops and boutiques. You can also dine or have some drinks at any of the nearby restaurants or bars that are all within a few blocks walk!
