Who Are We?
Welcome to our condos from Pete and Sharen DeRose, who are crazy about lake living! We make our primary home in a northern suburb of Chicago. You ask, how did we end up 7 ½ hours away from our Osage Beach Vacation condos? We had been enjoying our 27 ft. boat, along with our 3 children, for several years on Lake Michigan. Our children enjoyed tubing, water skiing and wake boarding however, we realized we needed to find a new home for our boat as the season in Northern Il. is so short. Lake Michigan waters are quite cold in the summer and the conditions of the lake can turn on a dime resulting in rough waters.
We stumbled upon Lake of the Ozarks, with a special offer visit to the Tan-Tar-Resort for a Spring Break get away. We absolutely fell in love with the expansiveness of Lake of the Ozarks, the beauty of the Missouri bluffs, the warmth of the lake and the stunning sunsets. For those reasons, 8 years ago we turned south and decided to make Osage Beach, Mo. the new home for our boat. We purchased our first condo along with the boat slip and decided to rent it out so others could have the same wonderful experiences.
I have enjoyed the challenge of making this vacation home a warm, relaxing and fun experience, that it evolved into two vacation homes that have become our pride and joy!
We love that after a long day of watersports on Lake of the Ozarks we can duck into one of the many bars and restaurants situated around the Lake. Our favorite one is the Red Head Yatch, just around the cove waters from the Ledges compex. one has the choice of upstairs dining for a more intimate experience or relax and snack in the swim up bar on the deck.
I love decorating and searching for new ways to improve the amenities we extend to our guests. I am very committed to transforming these condos into hotel like experiences.
When we are not enjoying a piece of paradise we are back home in Gurnee; Sharen a Speech and Language Pathologist in the public school setting and Pete a Senior Executive Vice President, who travels extensively. So with our schedules, we understand how important it is to have an inviting, warm and relaxing get away.
Our goal is to provide a relaxing experience with all of the comforts of home wrapped up in a well appointed condo with a tropical flair. We are here to assist you in making lasting memories with family and friends.
