“This family-owned resort is one of the few good ones left”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

My immediate and extended family -- about 18 of us these days -- have been staying at Sunset Beach Resort a week every summer for about 22 years now. Tom and Karen are phenomenal people and very caring owners of the property. Every year we go, the "units," as we like to call them, are clean and well-maintained. We rarely, if ever, have any issues (and if we do, both Tom and Karen address everything immediately). They even reserve parking for us so we have a spot for our cars when we arrive, even though it's abundant on the property. The on-site pool is always clean, cool and clear. The property is tucked in a cove, which is nice for fishing with kids, and offers easy access to the lake. Its across-the-cove neighbor is Backwater Jack's, which quiets down after 11 on weekends. Plus, you're just a handful of minutes by car to Wal-Mart, Hy-Vee, the outlet mall and then some. I challenge you to stay anywhere commercial at the lake that has all of this for the same price as Sunset Beach Resort charges.

Room Tip: The resort is built on a hill, so if you stay "up the hill," you're closer to the pool...

We have been going to Sunset Beach Resort with our children and grandchildren for 5 years! Tom and Karen are awesome owners! Perfect location with a restaurant/ bar in the cove! Great boat slips, clean and nice! It's a great deal!

My family and I have stayed at Sunset Beach Resort on our family vacation for several years. Karen and Tom (the owners) have always been great to us. The resort is very well kept and all the units are well maintained. My husband and I were just there for a few days and will be going back with our family for our annual 2 week stay.

Our family enjoy the time at the resort with the music from the Backwater Jacks across the cove and the well kept cottages and rooms. We enjoyed the pool and the beach along with the opportunity to boat and fish too. The owners are on site and have a wonderful personality and are so helpful in any way.

Karen and Tom own the resort. They live on site and that was a plus. The resort is a very safe place. I have a 13 year old daughter who was at home some without me. I was never afraid for her to be there by herself because of the tight ship that Karen and Tom run. They rent to workers in the area in the winter to help with their resort bottom line because of the short summer season here at the lake but the are certainly on top of who they are renting to. In the 6 months that I rented there I had absolutely no issues with other residents or the management. And anytime I had a maintenance issue it was addressed immediately. The grounds and the buildings are maintained very well. I would certainly recommend this quaint hideaway to others who are looking for a reasonably priced unit on the lake for an extended period or a just a weekend getaway!

For several years, my wife and I spend several weeks per year at this resort. It has everything we need. Good boat slips, a fish cleaning station, restaurant across the cove. The rooms are comfortable with a small stocked kitchen, dining and living areas. The building we stay in has two bedrooms per rental and either a nice patio area or deck overlooking the cove. The owners are fantastic, knowledgeable and helpful. Our kids and grandkids visit us while we are there and rent on the resort property as well. It's nice to have so much outdoor space for the grandkids to play. Plus, they love the resident black lab puppies. They have a pool, but we are not swimmers and have never visited it. The property is well located with very easy access to the grocery stores, shops and restaurants. We have many years worth of great experiences and good memories at Sunset Beach Resort.

Sunset Beach Resort is a great place to stay when you are in the Lake of the Ozarks area. It is close to everything but has the feel of a secluded getaway. It is perfect if you love to fish. There are docks for your boat and there is even an onsite boat rental company if you choose not to bring your boat along. We even had great success at fishing right off of the docks.

The accommodations are very clean and very comfortable. The beds are some of the best we've had in our travels. Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, cable tv, and all linens that are needed. All you need to bring are your toiletries and clothing! Right down the street are several grocery stores that are easy to get to. If cooking isn't your thing you can enjoy many restaurants right in the area. Backwater Jack's is just across the cove. (Warning the smell coming from there will make you hungry!)

Tom and Karen are wonderful hosts. They go above and beyond making sure that you are enjoying your stay with them. When it came time for us to leave we were sad because it felt like we were leaving our second home. I can't recommend this place highly enough whether you are staying for a weekend, a week, or as in our case, several months your time here is bound to be some of the most relaxing time you've had. Whenever we are back in the area this is where you will find us!
