Choosing the Right Condo Complex for Your Needs

When vacationing at the Lake of the Ozarks, you have a variety of options for places to stay. Even within our company, the choices for condos at the Lake of the Ozarks are many. Below are some things to think about when choosing where you want to stay while you're visiting the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks:

1. Location


The Lake of the Ozarks is quite large. In fact, it has more shoreline than the state of California! Therefore, it's important you pick a good location. Do you want to be near the Bagnell Dam Strip or closer to the Outlet Mall? Are you taking the kids to Big Surf or just hitting the Lake in your boat? Consider what activities you want to participate in and that will help you choose the best location. We have great Lake of the Ozarks condos both in the Horseshoe Bend area and throughout Osage Beach!

2. Amenities


If you're going to be on the water the entire time your visiting Lake of the Ozarks, then amenities might not be your top priority. However, many people, especially those with kids, prefer to stay in a condo complex that offers a swimming pool. Playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts are also something to consider. Are you bringing your own boat? If so, you might want to try to find a condo complex that has a boat ramp and trailer parking onsite or at least nearby. If you need WiFi available or want to be able to watch TV while you're there, be sure to check if you'll have that at the complex you choose.

3. Price


Another factor in determining the best condo complex to stay in is the price. The great thing about choosing Your Lake Vacation for all your vacation rental needs is that most of our condos of comparable size and location are roughly the same price. Therefore, you can choose your favorite property without worrying about the price shooting way up! We also offer extended stay discounts, where you pay for 6 nights and get the 7th night free! Come in the off-season and you'll save even more!

For all your Lake of the Ozarks accommodation needs, give us a call at 877-284-0267. Let us know your needs and we'll find the perfect property for you and your group. Need something larger than a condo? We also have beautiful waterfront homes at the Lake of the Ozarks available for vacation rental. We hope to see you soon!

What Do I Need to Bring to My Vacation Rental?

When renting a vacation home or condo at the Lake of the Ozarks, what should you bring with you and what will be supplied with the rental? Every rental is different. Therefore, be sure to ask the right questions and check the amenities list if one is provided to you. At our Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental company, we try to supply most basic items so that the guests don't have to worry about bringing things like paper towels, soaps, tissue, toilet paper, dish tabs, etc.

Traveling with Too Much Stuff


Yikes! My family and I went on vacation with my dad and my aunt and uncle to Dauphin Island, Alabama about 12 years ago. The home that my dad rented on the beach didn't come with much at all. In fact, we had to supply our own bedding, pillows, sheets, blankets, the whole nine yards. Trying to get five kids and two adults, all our clothes and bedding into a mini-van with a topper was quite the sight. Never doing that again!

"Does this property come with air conditioning?" "Does this property have sheets and pillows?" When we get calls from prospective guests asking questions like these, we can tell they've probably had some rough experiences in the past.

What to Bring


Here are a few things that you really should think about taking along on vacation to make your stay more comfortable:

  1. Shampoo - Many places provide soap, but most people prefer their own shampoo. 
  2. Coffee - While some places may provide a packet of coffee, most people prefer their own brands. 
  3. Old Fashioned Games - It may rain on y our vacation, and while some properties provide a few games, it is always fun to get out the monopoly, risk or sorry game to pass the time on a rainy day. 
  4. Your Favorite Music - This used to consist of bringing your cassettes or cds, but now you can just load music to your favorite device to take with you anywhere you travel. 
  5. Beach Towels - Most places will provide bath and hand towels, but if you are heading to the beach or the pool, you will want your large beach towels. 
  6. First Aid Kit - While you hope you will never need it, if you have kids (or even some adventurous adults), you will want to have a first aid kit handy. 
  7. Small Tool Kit - Running a property management company at the Lake of the Ozarks, I always have a tool kit with me. It's surprising just how many things you can fix with a good old four way screwdriver and a pair of pliers. 
  8. A Pad of Paper and Pen - While smart phones can perform a lot of tasks, there are still uses for good ol' pen and paper. Notes to others, keeping score or tic tac toe all require some pen and paper. 

So be sure to ask your vacation rental company or the owner of the property what comes with the property you're renting and what you should bring with you. Then pack up the car and head out on a vacation to your favorite destination! If that's the Lake of the Ozarks, then give Your Lake Vacation a call at 877-284-0267. 

Russell Burdette is the owner of Your Lake Vacation, a professional vacation rental management company at the Lake of the Ozarks since 1986.
