Clever Storage Solutions for Your Condo

Have you been reluctant to buy a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks due to space restrictions? Well, our condominium complex at the Lake of the Ozarks offers plenty of living space, especially compared to other condos but many of us have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years. However, just because of you lots of "stuff" doesn't mean you can't enjoy our luxury condos, it just means that you will need to get a little more creative with your storage solutions. Today, Isla Del Sol has a few suggestions for storing all of your belongings, check it out!


(This photo is an example of storage solutions and does not depict an actual photo inside our condos)

Maximize Your Closet Space

Your closet is not necessarily limited to its obvious dimensions. When you get a little creative with the area, you can double its space. Adding shelving like in the photo to the right allows you to put in an extra hanging rack, using the lower space that often remains empty. Drawer dividers can be added to increase the amount of what can fit into them. There are also over the door hanging shelves that use up even more space that will otherwise be wasted.

Use Your Walls to Your Advantage 

Walls are mostly used for hanging pictures, but they are a great place for additional home storage. In the office, adding floating shelves above your desk utilizes a lot of otherwise empty space. Files that you don't often need in hand can be stored at the top.

You can hang kitchen utensils that are used often on the wall space between the counter and the cabinets. A hanging cup rack doubles as decor if you put your prettiest mugs on it. This simple solution frees up a lot of drawer and counter space. If you don't like the idea of having to hang up hardware for this, a  utensil holder on top of your counters will alleviate some space in your kitchen drawers. 

Multifunctional Furniture 

The very best way to increase your storage space without adding furniture is to buy pieces that have storage hidden inside of them. Storage ottomans are great for this. They can be used as extra seating or table space, but also allow you to keep items inside of them and out of sight. Benches are also great seats that have plenty of room for stuff underneath.

A captain's bed comes with built-in drawers underneath the frame. Some coffee tables have a top that lifts up to desk level, with storage space underneath.



This just barely scrapes the surface of creative ways to store your items! There are a lot of great ideas out there when you do your research. Don't let a smaller space keep you from a life of luxury on our private island at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our premier condo complex situated right on the water's edge of the Lake of the Ozarks is waiting for you! Come tour our model units daily from 10am to 4pm!

5 Reasons to Relocate to the Lake of the Ozarks

There is no denying that the Lake of the Ozarks is a great place to live! Centrally located in the United States, you can't beat the luxury lake lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. If you've been considering relocation or even if it hasn't crossed your mind yet, our condominium complex at the Lake of the Ozarks, Isla Del Sol, has 5 compelling reasons you should consider relocation.

#1 The Lake is Centrally Located

One of the best features of the Lake of the Ozarks is that it's centrally located in Mid-Missouri! The Lake is the best location for anyone who may prefer to live in a quieter, non-congested area, but remain close enough to the surrounding metropolis areas that they can drive there and back in the same day. This also makes the Lake a fantastic place for business owners to relocate since they can quickly and easily jump on the highway and head back and forth to the big cities for meetings, etc.

#2 Top-Notch Quality of Life

Ask anyone who lives here or has visited. Living at the Lake of the Ozarks is by far one of the best decisions you can make! The quality of life is like nothing you'll find anywhere else. From award-winning health systems to the best recreational activities your whole family can enjoy - Lake of the Ozarks is one of the best places to live in Missouri. That's why thousands of vacationers choose to return year after year, and many even choose to relocate to the Lake of the Ozarks once they experience the benefits of spending time here.

#3 Best Wining and Dining

With 5 wineries, a distillery, and hundreds of wonderful restaurants to choose from, your wining and dining experiences are limitless! The Lake of the Ozarks offers some of the best food around and has some of the best happy hours you can find. Whether you're looking for a restaurant to have a nice sit-down meal with family or friends, or a great place to stop and grab a quick bite to eat on your lunch break, the Lake has many opportunities to experience awesome food and fantastic waterfront dining!

#4 Best School Districts Around

At the Lake of the Ozarks, we have some of the best schools around. There are four local high schools in the Lake area and even opportunities for higher education. State Fair Community College offers great 2-year degree programs and they also partner with Central Method University to offer a variety of 4-year degrees as well. Columbia College is another great campus as they offer Associates Degrees, Bachelor Degrees, and Masters Degree programs. What's great is that these educational institutions work closely together with community businesses to educate and prepare their students to succeed in the local workforce! There are several preschools and daycares to choose from in the area as well.

#5 Family Fun All Year Round

There's no shortage of fun activities on AND off the Lake! Of course, the main reason people choose to visit or live at the Lake is to enjoy the lake itself. But once you come off the water for the day, the fun doesn't have to end there. There are several offshore outdoor activities to enjoy, such as state parks to hike in, caves to explore, go-cart tracks to race around, and several golf courses to get a game or two in. There are also several indoor activities to check out that'll keep your family having a blast even on rainy days, such as an indoor trampoline park, a challenging interactive escape room, laser tag, an arcade, and plenty of shopping opportunities for everyone!

6 Tips for Buying a Condo at the Lake of the Ozarks

Have you been considering investing in a second home at the Lake of the Ozarks? If you love to visit the Lake of the Ozarks multiple times a year and throughout the summer, owning a second home might be a great solution for your frequent vacations! You may be thinking about buying a home on the water but if you don't plan to live there full time, have you considered buying a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks instead? Condominiums are a great investment becasue they offer resort-style amenities and require less maintenance than owning a home. With the first of the year quickly approaching, now is a great time to start thinking about investing in a second home at the Lake of Ozarks! Not sure where to start? Consider 6 tips for buying a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks below!


1) Secure Your Financing

Get pre-approved for financing prior to looking at condos. This is critical because some lenders and loan products do not allow condo purchases. Some programs can be tricky, such as FHA (Federal Housing Administration) Loans. Normally, the FHA will require 80% of the units in the building to be owner-occupied and on their approved list. Your best bet is to stick with a local lender. However, they generally require a minimum of 20% down. Be sure your financing is secured before you fall in love with that beautiful new unit!

2) Hire a Real Estate Agent with Experience in Selling Condos

Buying a condo is much different than a residential home. The purchase contract is different than a single-family home, as contingencies are based on different factors. There are association rules and dues that need to be taken into consideration. If you are purchasing a Lake of the Ozarks condo with a slip in the community dock, there are separate dues for that. A real estate agent with experience in selling condos will make sure important documents are not overlooked

3) Know What the Association Fees Include

As mentioned before, some of the greatest benefits to living in condos at Lake of the Ozarks is having less maintenance than a residential home. You should know what's included in your condo fees. Common fees include lawn maintenance and landscaping, snow removal, water and sewer services, trash pickup and sometimes even cable!

 4) Find Out What The Complex Includes

Does the condo come with a private covered garage or boat slip or are these extra? If not included, do you need them? Those items will need to be negotiated with the seller or it can make the price of the unit substantially higher. The last thing you want is to find out your garage is just a parking space or the boat slip is too small.

5) Find Out Who the Maintenance and Management Company Are

The maintenance company is in charge of the upkeep of the property. Know who to contact if the common areas of the community need attention. Most condos have a management company to take care of day-to-day operations. They enforce rules and regulations, handle the finances, and should be able to answer your questions regarding the complex.

6) Review Special Assessments

Understand what special assessments are. It is highly likely that the condo complex will undergo a major structural repair in the future. This will require money beyond the usual assessments. Generally, the association has a reserve, but it is possible for assessments to be raised for a period of time to cover any major repairs. If there are special assessments planned, they should be fully disclosed to you as a potential buyer.



The first of the year is the perfect time to sit down and access your plans and goals for the upcoming year. Buying a condo is a great way to not only have a fun place to go for weekend trips but also a great investment opportunity! Our condominiums at the Lake of the Ozarks offer resort-style amenities and our panoramic views of the lake are mesmerizing! You can tour one of our model units every day from 10am to 4 pm! We'd love to show you what living in luxury is all about!
