Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time on our vacation! The condo was very spacious and clean. We could tell that the owners take pride in their condo and we were impressed with the fact that it was fully stocked with all of the "extras" to make it feel like we were at home. The owner was easy to contact before and during our stay. The only reason we didn't rate this a 5 star property was because of the grounds. They could use some work and we saw people working on the improvements each day, The beautiful and private beach makes up for it. We would definitely recommend this property to others looking for a nice beach getaway!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our villa. We are continually making updates to our place in order to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible. We did have a tornado go through our area a few weeks ago and unfortunately some damage was done to surrounding properties. However, continual clean up efforts are being made to the grounds to repair the damage. Our Villa and the beach were not affected by the tornado and we are happy to hear that your family had a memorable stay.

Clean condo but be aware of hazards outside

  • 3 of 5
The condo was clean and spacious as advertised. The beach was easy to access on foot and was private. However, I would caution parents with young children against staying here. What you don't see in the pictures is a lot of vacant building slated for demolition all around the property. In addition, right outside of the front door (condo offers no nice view of beach or anything from within) there is a concrete slab that looks to be pulled up in one corner making it likely for a small child to fall in the hole. Overall, the outside of the condo including the patio offered no nice views and overlooked a vacant, dilapidated motel. The condo is OK but given the surrounding environment it is too expensive and hazardous.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to read this review, as our family, many friends and previous guests have all had wonderful vacations and many fond memories from staying at our villa. We have three young boys who have all grown up playing in and around our property and have never had a safety or security issue. We know all the owners of all the properties and many have young children as well. We do not state to have a lake view in our property description, but we do sit on the bluff, directly above the water. Our homeowner association has been battling with the property owner on the mentioned abandoned buildings and have finally received notification that they are to be slated for demolition by years end. We are continually making updates and upgrades to our property to ensure an "at home" feeling during your stay and are proud to say we have a strong referral and numerous guests returning year after year.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay in late July! The decor is adorable and the unit is clean and comfortable. We fit right in! There is everything you need to cook but be aware... it took 45 minutes to boil water! So leave plenty of time for that! The unit is very spacious for only having 2 bedrooms which was a huge plus for us. The unit is extremely close to the paved path down to the beach BUT it is very steep. It has to be because it is on a bluff though. The maintenance men are good about seeing if anyone needs a ride up or down on a golf cart so that helps tremendously. So, we loved it and look forward to staying again!

Great place for small kids, close to St. Joe!

  • 5 of 5
We have a wonderful time here! It was so nice to be so close to the beach. The walk down was steep, but doable. We pulled a wagon of beach goodies up and down two different days. We basically had the beach to ourselves as well.
Complex was generally quiet which was great for allowing our small children to play outside without too much worry of passing cars.
We did drive down to Silver Beach one day - probably no more than a 10 minute drive. We also stopped by Extraordinary Berry and did some raspberry picking.

Property was clean and well maintained. The shared laundry was very close by! We did lots of cooking in our unit as well as grilling on the gas grill. The only thing missing for us was a dishwasher, but definitely not a deal breaker!

Breath Taking and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
This condo is very well decorated and has a beach feel atomsphere. The condo itself is well maintain and has all the amenities you need for a getaway. The beach that the condo is on is also clean and has soft sand to walk on when you want to take those long walks on the beach. The setting is in a private location right on Lake MI were the sunsets are romantic and the beach area is private. This was a great vacation for my family and friends to have a social and private gathering. We have been there a few times and enjoy every minute of this place. The condo is not located right in town, so it allows you and your family/friends to enjoy eachothers company and scenery of Lake MI. The condo has everything you need for a perfect getaway.
The owners are very helpful in responding to your reservations and information about the area. They have several MI magazines and pamphlets located in the condo to make a night out in the town or a day to explore easy for people that are new to the area.
A few places that I would recommend in going would be South Haven, where there are these unique shops and good restaurants. Most of all I would recommend to grill out, lay at the beach and enjoy the sunset at the condo.

Nice decor, even better beach

  • 4 of 5
This was a very nicely appointed resort condo in Coloma, MI. It is not in St. Joseph and it is not a villa. Also, the doors were not marked clearly with numbers, and we knocked on different doors for a long time trying to find the right one. :)

But still - it was lovely, the beach was close and the swimming was awesome. No stairs! Love that. Our family of teens and adults swam three times a day or more. It was very clean, the kitchen had everything and we loved the grill. We did visit St. Joseph once for Venetian Festival, it wasn't too far away. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to a friend.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this great review. It is always nice to hear that other families enjoy staying in our vacation home as much as we do. Since this review we have added new house numbers that clearly identify the property for any visitor, hopefully this will avoid any confusion in the future. Thanks again and we look forward to having you back next year!.
