BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this home justice. It is so much more. A great place to have a family reunion or get together with friends. We were in St. Joseph for my daughters wedding and had the rehersal dinner at the house with about 40-45 people. EVERYONE said it was a perfect setting. Very spacious and a great place for entertaining. The home is so comfortable with everything you need except food and clothes. Extremely clean and comfortable. I wish we could have stayed longer! The beach is just beautiful! I would give this a 5 star rating! Hope we can make it make in 2013....

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5
Charming older 2-story home in a fantastic brick-lined street location & neighborhood that backs up to the beach. Much larger home than in pictures. Great deck & screened-in porch. Private beach was peaceful. Sunsets from beach were simply amazing! There wasn't anything that we needed that the kitchen didn't have. Owner and manager are incredibly accomodating and friendly. Our family had a great time!

WOW!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house and this beach are so much more than what we expected...charming interior, AMAZING beach, we've visited many beaches together and this is now by far our favorite fresh water beach...the waves and sand make you feel like you are in the tropics and it's all yours, very, very private. The best part about the property is that there are no stairs or cliffs to worry about. Getting to the beach was an easy walk. Our group had every age, easiest, very accomodating stay, kids had a blast (smores by the beach fire are a must) and the handicap accessible bathroom worked for my dad. It truly is a perfect family getaway. Hope we make it back!

Too Good to Be True

  • 5 of 5
Completely as advertised and then some. Wonderful truly private Lake Michigan beach, soft sand and no rocks. Lovely, well-appointed home with every amenity. This could be our family's annual vacation place if it stays available. Completely handicap accessible, new beds, fully equiped kitchen, beach toys & floats, incredible deck facing the lake for awesome sunset viewing. We have no complaints, only high praise. Actually, we'd rather keep this place a secret but that wouldn't be fair. Mary & Mike & Family, Elkhart, Indiana
