Get Your Second Home Ready for Being Empty During the Off Season

Fall is here and once the weather starts to cool down you probably won't find yourself at your second home at the Lake of the Ozarks often, if not until next spring. It's never too early to start planning what to do when you leave your condo for the off-season months. You want to ensure that your condo at the Lake of the Ozarks is protected from the weather and is in tip-top shape when you return. There are steps you should take when you plan on leaving your condominium for season. Your favorite condominium complex at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few tips for keeping your condo safe while you are away.



Protect your dock slip from ice.

If you've decided to winterize your boat and choose to leave it in the slip, you'll want to take some precautions to ensure your boat is protected from the ice! A de-icer in the water can keep ice from forming around your boat and damaging the hull. Disconnecting batteries from the boat and keeping the cover sealed tight can also help prevent accidental neighbors (pests) from hibernating in your watercraft.

Adjust your thermostat for your absence.

Leaving your condo energy efficient in your absence is not as easy as simply turning off the thermostat and walking away for the winter. You'll want to turn the thermostat over to the heat setting and set it low, around 50°F. This can prevent your home from dropping into freezing temperature, which could lead to property damage.

Unplug unnecessary appliances from the wall.

Unplug all of your appliances. A report from Springfield, Illinois shows that your fridge consumes anywhere from $7 to $18 monthly. If you're going to be gone for months, this is just wasted energy and money. Additionally, appliances can cause household fires if the power cord is faulty. With no one home, it could be devastating if a fire were to occur.


Hire someone to check on your property.

Several companies around the Lake of the Ozarks offer winter home checking services, all designed to keep your home protected and keep it looking like it isn't empty. You could also make friends with those who stay around your property year round - these neighbors are perfect people to ask to keep an eye on things!

It is important to take the necessary steps to prepare your second home at the Lake of the Ozarks for vacancy during the offseason. There is still plenty of time to enjoy the fall season at the Lake of the Ozarks but it won't be long until you leave the Lake until next year, so be sure to keep this list handy. If you don't plan on hiring someone or you don't have a trusted neighbor to keep an eye on your condo, it's a good idea to come back and check on things from time to time. Plus, it gives you a chance to experience your panoramic view of the Lake again!


By following these simple organization hacks, living in a condominium at the Lake of the Ozarks is sounding better and better! At Isla Del Sol, you get to live in paradise all year, so what are you waiting for? Don't let a small space intimidate you, stop by Isla Del Sol and see what living in luxury is all about! You can tour our model units daily from 10am-4pm, we'd love to show you around!

Maximize Your Space in Your Condo!

Many people are reluctant to buy a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks because they are afraid that there will not be enough space. Even though our luxury condos at the Lake of the Ozarks are over 1,300 square feet, everyone always feels like they need more room. However, most of the time it isn't space you are lacking, it's organization. Follow these tips below to maximize space in your condo!


Organize Your Living Room

As a central hub of entertainment and relaxation for most families, it can be difficult at times to keep out the mess and clutter in your living room. When looking to maximize these areas, it is best to find multi-functioning furniture. Invest in a coffee table with bottom shelving, and drawers for magazines and normal table clutter. T.V. stands with drawers and cabinets are great for storing movies and games in a neat way. Additionally, adding a few nice accent end tables with open sides or cabinet doors will give your living areas extra storage room, creating a beautiful spacious look.

Maximize Bathroom Storage

Putting baskets under the sink and behind doors can be useful for storing small electrical appliances, such as electric razors and curling irons, when not in use. For more space options, buy a plastic shoe organizer, cut it into three or four sections and attach them on the inside of doors or inside sink cabinets.

Get the Most out of Your Bedroom

Having a clean and spacious bedroom will maximize your relaxation and comfort in your condo. Having a few flat bins are great for storing out of season clothes under the bed. Utilizing closet organizers to separate clothing, shoes, ties, scarfs and more will yield more functionality to your closet. Get a nice stand up hamper with a lid that matches the theme of your bedroom. Be sure to go through your clothes seasonally to see if they are getting old and faded or aren't fitting right anymore. Yearly closet cleanouts are important for keeping clutter at a minimum.

Maximizing Your Entryway

As the first area that you welcome your guests into your condo, the entryway is often the most cluttered by shoes, coats and children's backpacks. Simple organization and a few additions can make a major difference between clutter and opening up your entryway. You can maximize space by adding a storage bench; this is a good place to store shoes and backpacks, as well as other things that need a place close to the door. Top that off with a wall mounted coat rack, a few shelves for pictures and a mirror for a great accented look. Now you have a beautiful entryway that reflects the open theme of your condo.



By following these simple organization hacks, living in a condominium at the Lake of the Ozarks is sounding better and better! At Isla Del Sol, you get to live in paradise all year, so what are you waiting for? Don't let a small space intimidate you, stop by Isla Del Sol and see what living in luxury is all about! You can tour our model units daily from 10am-4pm, we'd love to show you around!
