This was our second trip to St. Joseph and we have fallen in love with the place. (Last year we only spent a weekend at a hotel. This year, we spent an entire week at Island Pointe) We are a family of four: 2 adults and 2 kids: an 18 year-old and an 11 year-old. Next year we plan to spend another week with the Klomfars.
We had an incredible vacation!
Brenda has put together an amazing "home away from home". This is by far the most detailed rental unit we have ever occupied; from the beautiful dishes to the sound machine in the bedroom, she has covered every base. The unit is spotless, and everything works exactly the way you would like it to. It's decorated beautifully, and the furniture and bedding are very cozy.
The pool is clean, clear and never over crowded. The foosball table in the garage was a lot of fun for us. (Our 11 year-old insisted we have a "tournament"--which he of course won), and the deck out back was great for playing card games, enjoying the breeze, and watching the playground.
We missed having a kitchen table to eat our home cooked meals at, but we made do. This was by no means a "deal breaker" for us.
Our activities for the week included Warren Dunes Park, "Chalk on the Block" downtown (SOoo cool), Michigan Adventure amusement park, the National Blueberry Festival in South Haven, plenty of pool time & shopping/eating downtown, and we even rented a boat from Pier 1000 for one afternoon.
Next year we'll repeat some of our activities and branch out to try more. I don't believe it's possible to find higher quality or convenience in the area for the price you pay with this amazing house.
Thank you SO much for offering such a lovely place to stay for the week! We can't wait to come back. :)
