Great stay!

  • 4 of 5
We have never stayed in a rental home before and were extremely excited when we got to the house. The reason we picked this house was they allow dogs. The house is beautiful. The architecture and furnishings were lovely. There is an in ground pool which was thee other reason we choose this house. The pool is very big and heated..bonus! It is a quick walk to the beach and one of the best restaurants we ate at was just 3 houses down. Very close to New Buffalo too. I would definitely stay here again. Great vacation!

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5
The home was perfect for our spring-time family gathering. The home is huge, beautiful, in a great area, and has a lay-out that never left us feeling cramped for space. We hope to return this summer!

Beautiful home

Beautiful vacation house!

We had great NYE weekend at this home. The rooms are big, well decorated; the open layout of the kitchen and living room is perfect for big parties. We loved how the fireplace separates the living and the dining room. There were fireplaces in almost every room. The bedrooms are so nice and the master bedroom in blue is so relaxing. The den has big TV and entertaining system that connect the sound in many rooms. The build in speakers are controlled individually in each room and even outside. We found everything we needed for our stay and the owner let us come and leave anytime we want. That was so awesome, we didn’t have to rush to wake up early in the morning! I will come back at this house anytime!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
This home home is elegant and spacious - perfect for relaxing getaway.The home is filled with natural light and the view of the pool (heated!) and backyard is spectacular. The decor is unique and tasteful, not the usual Pottery Barn look we find in many of the homes we rent. We loved the fact that we could bring our dog and that the home was kid friendly. The owner was gracious and helpful and the location is ideal.Just a few minutes walk down to the beach with great restaurants and antique shops nearby. We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning!

Beautiful House, Helpful Owner

  • 4 of 5
This was a quick two-day getaway, but I have also rented in the summer and it has been a great spot for my family. Nice big pool and plenty of room for everybody. Owner was quick to respond to questions and concerns and had an in-town caretaker who came right over when we misplaced our keys. Upscale for sure, but not too fancy for a few wet bathing suits and a little sand, and a five-minute walk from the beach! Will definitely be returning.

TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT

  • 1 of 5
NOT WORTH IT!! COMPLETE LET DOWN AND DISAPPOINTMENT!! As we drove up to the house expecting a clean and landscaped getaway (like the photos show), we found ourselves faced with overgrown bushes, a lawn that wasn't mowed, leaves and dirt at the bottom of the pool, and paint chipping off rotting wood surrounding the entire house. Inside the house, we found DOG HAIR caked on the furniture, musty linens, stained chairs, tarnished silverware, etc. The closets were full of the owner's personal items, so don't expect to hang up any of your OWN clothes. We had to clean the house, launder the blankets, clean the pool, and buy toilet paper, light bulbs, and many other basic items you would expect in any vacation rental!! We had to cover the dog hair-infested furniture with sheets (after we did the laundry), just to be able to sit down! To top things off, our planned dinner (BBQ) on our last night was ruined, thanks to the fact that we were told the gas grill worked, and had a full tank of gas. That wasn't the case. The owner and property manager did not address any of our concerns during our stay, thus we could NOT possibly recommend this place.
