Wake Zone Luxury Houseboat Rentals Inc. will begin it's ninth season this spring here on Lake Ouachita in Royal, Arkansas. We are located and operate out of Crystal Springs Resort & Marina which is family owned and operated. We are one of four houseboat rental companies on Lake Ouachita. We differ from the others in a few ways:

  • We are 100% family owned and operated. We are smaller. We have four boats the others have six to twenty.
  • Our boats are high-end luxury boats heavily equipped and decorated.
  • We pride ourselves in our service. We grant our customers wishes regardless of what they may be.
  • We include everything in the rental price, no hidden costs.
  • Our prices are very similar to the others.
  • Our boats are very well maintained and thoroughly cleaned before each rental.
  • Personal service...always.


Wake Zone is family owned and operated by the Harris and Kindt families. With combined houseboat experience on Bull Shoals Lake and Lake Ouachita, Shane Harris and Donny Kindt have 20 years combined in the houseboat rental industry. Suzanne Kindt and Wendy Harris (sisters) have taken their years of experience in hotel management and party planning and used them to provide a fantastic vacation atmosphere.

When our families started this company in 2001, our goal was to provide the nicest, most luxurious houseboats on Lake Ouachita, and to provide the most outstanding customer service possible. We achieve these goals year after year by limiting the number of houseboats in our fleet and by meeting and exceeding every customer's need.

We know how important family summer vacations are to people. When our guests choose to vacation with us we take each group or family as an individual challenge. A challenge to provide them with a life changing experience, an ultimate vacation.
