About the property

The Decor Recreates The Owner's Pisces Penchant For Sun, Surf, And Sand.

The tranquil Caribbean design coexists with the peacefulness of the prairie in this 1,700 sq. foot walkout basement NW of Kearney near Cottonmill Lake. Spacious living room and bedrooms with a large, partially enclosed patio open into the backyard for play space by day and star gazing on clear nights. Paved road access to the north end shopping center and UNK campus -- 12 minutes each direction.

Why Anita Lorentzen chose Kearney

Twelve years ago, I chose this location to build a home for my children. We had moved to town, and I missed the farms where I had grown up and lived until then. I moved a house from town and added a master suite and walk out basement, carefully choosing the positioning of the house and windows to maximize the open view.

Guests have especially appreciated the cozy and relaxing environment -- indoors and out. The unique beach theme and tastefully done decor give the home a welcoming feel not found elsewhere in the area. The area is secluded with picturesque views of rolling hills, yet access to the business and entertainment venues in town is convenient.

Thoroughly Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

This was actually my first time staying in a vacation rental home and holy moly, my family and I were thoroughly impressed! Both my mom and I own vacation rental homes ourselves, and Anita went above and beyond...we left feeling inspired to better our own properties! She literally thought of everything! The attention to details and uniqueness throughout the space are overwhelming! We will definitely be back :)

Great fun!

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us girls who started Kindergarten together and sang together in grade school. We are now 74 and have met every few years to visit and enjoy each other's company. They all agreed it was so relaxing and enjoyable and just loved the Caribbean Ambience. We had a terrific time. Would highly recommend this get away!
