Grand Lake Monkey Island Homes For Sale

Most of us when thinking of buying a second home on the lake never consider how fast a response time would be should a family member or guest  become suddenly and seriously ill or be in an accident. None of us want to think about bad times especially when thinking about good times that can be had on Grand Lake and Monkey Island. Monkey Island is well known for many gated communities with waterfront homes priced from $200,000 to a million dollars. There are also several well known and liked dining spots on Monkey Island and some quaint shops to visit. Monkey Island is central to all of Grand Lake and you can boat to the north end to fish or boat south toward the dam just to have a great boat ride.

What most of us don’t know is the fact that the Monkey Island Fire Department has one of the best equipped and staffed fire and emergency response teams to be found. With two paid full time members and a host of nearby volunteers these men and women make things happen quickly when an accident or fire occurs. I recently spoke with one of the members and was told they make it a point to be on the scene of an emergency within 5-7 minutes anywhere in their service area. When they arrive they get to work and know how to handle the situation. If a traffic accident, part of the team starts directing traffic while others are getting victims to a safe area and assessing the situation. The ambulance will be along but takes awhile from Grove but if the EMTs think necessary they call for the helicopter from Joplin.

About a week ago, my wife was hit by a drunk driver on Monkey Island. It turned out she was not seriously hurt but banged up and bruised pretty bad. She was knocked out for about 15 minutes and because of this and seeing her head had hit the windshield they called for the helicopter and flew her to Joplin for care if needed. Turned out she had a concussion but ok otherwise in the head part of the injury but better safe than sorry. Grove also has a great hospital and can do all but a few areas of health care like head injuries.

None of us want to need emergency personnel but we never know when around the next corner may be a wreck or heart attack we are not expecting. It is really great to know that the Monkey Island Fire and Rescue Squad is ready to roll and knows what they are doing. I tell people all the time, they will get to the scene faster than any city emergency team.

If you are thinking about a Grand Lake waterfront home, take a look at Monkey Island and know you have help if ever needed.

To find out more about Monkey Island real estate or Monkey Island gated communities call The Grand Lake Team at RE/MAX Grand Lake in Grove, OK. Dakota Hadley at 918 323-2169 or dhadleyrealtor@gmail.com or Joe Neill at 918 640-3300 or grandlakejoe49@gmail.com. We hope to hear from you soon.

Grand Lake Luxury Waterfront Homes–Good Selection Time to Buy if You Have Been Wanting a Grand Lake Luxury Home

If you have been thinking of buying a Grand Lake Luxury Waterfront Home, now is a great time to be buying. I just looked on the Grand Lake MLS and there are 55 Grand Lake Luxury Homes $700,000 and above listed. This is an oversupply in this price point for our market. Some homes are priced on the money and may not come down but most are priced too high for this market and not getting sold. I think this might be a time that one could make an offer and maybe get $50,000-100,000  and on some maybe $200,000 off asking price.

Patricia Island, Grand Lake, Waterfront Chateau 13 9-10 059 Chateau 13 9-10 056 boat, boat slip, dock, grand lake sunsets on lake 017

The Chateaus are located just off the Shangri La Country Club and also have wonderful lakeviews and owned waterfront. It is a special place.

The Coves on South Grand Lake is another gated community with 24 hour/7 day week security service. There are also several Grand Lake Luxury Waterfront homes here to choose from.

Grand Lake Gated Communities – A Great Way To Own A Vacation Home on the Lake

Many people when thinking Grand Lake vacation homes immediately think Grand Lake gated communities. Gated Communities on Grand Lake offer increased security, lawn care, common amenities such as swimming pools and club houses, and a planned beautiful setting that says relax and have fun. The area of the lake that immediately comes to mind for the most gated communities is Monkey Island where you find gated favorites such as Newport Village, Brighton Bay, St. Andrews, Beacon Hill, White Chapel, Jack’s Hideaway, Shangri La Estates, The Chateaus, Silver Key, and others. All these gated communities are great choices but today I want to tell you about another gated community that often goes unnoticed.

Melody Point, is a Gated Community just five minutes from downtown Grove, Oklahoma but in a quiet and pretty setting. Melody Point offers another great option for a vacation home on Grand Lake. It offers craftsman lodge type home designs in a planned community. There is a community room for neighborhood get to gathers or family reunions, a swimming pool, hot tub, picnic and barbecue area to enjoy as well.

We have listed Grand Lake MLS 13-757 is a very upscale home with 3 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half baths, 2 living areas, and large garage. The home has 12′ ceilings in the main living area, heavy crown moldings, designer kitchen with beautiful cabinets with a lavish tile backsplash, and granite countertops. The massive stone fireplace sets the mood for the open living, dining, kitchen. You will spend hours on the large covered deck overlooking a beautiful pond and treed landscape. A short walk or golf cart ride away is your owned 12′ x 34′ boat slip in the community near new boat docks. This home is priced right for all the elegant finishes it offers in such a nice setting at $370,000.

Melody Point is a much newer Grand Lake gated community than most of the Monkey Island areas and offers high quality construction homes. Melody Point should be on your list of gated communities to see.
