Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Selim,



We are having a great time here in Saugatuck! Your place is very nice, and we are enjoying the sunroom, backyard, and grill. We are having such a pleasant time, but it is going so quickly since we could only get here very late Monday night and will leave tomorrow morning. Basically only three quick days, Tuesday through Thursday. So we are considering staying an extra night if no one else is planning to come this weekend. Is Friday night available?

We live in Chicago. Both scientists with three great kids. Always have been 'In Love' with Saugatuck! The water, boats, wonderful art pieces in the many galleries and the coffee to top it off is a wonderful way to relax from our daily quite intense research jobs. Buy purchasing this property we will be able to enjoy this great environment and would like to share it with all!

Selim Erhan and Barbara Kroczynska purchased this condo in 2009

We love Saugatuck. It is a great place to visit and we enjoy everytime we visit it for business or pleasure.

The boats and the water front, the gardens, and the general atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing and the art work is very stimulating.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for three nights and I loved it! Home was clean, modern and charming. It's a two-minute walk from town so it's a perfect location. Mary street is very peaceful and pretty. We stayed in the back unit with sunroom and backyard. I would definitely stay here again.

AMAZING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Spent this last weekend in Saugatuck Michigan and had an AMAZING time. The location of this condo made it easy to walk to town. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. The bathroom was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed relaxing and sitting in the sunroom prior to heading into town for dinner, drinks and live music. The owners allowed us to check in early so we could enjoy more time on our trip. The convenience to downtown makes this condo an amazing place to stay.
If you are a couple looking for a place to stay I highly recommend this condo. We’ll be back later this summer.

IDEAL PLACE FOR A NICE ROMANTIC GETAWAY , PERFECT FOR YOUNG COUPLES AND FAMILIES !

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband stayed for 2 nights in one of the lower units (unit 1) of this property. The room was very nice and clean. The bathroom was spacious and remodeled with a newer bathtub. The furniture and linens were up to the mark. The property itself is beautiful with a fenced patio and yard. Very private and serene feel whether inside or outside the house.
The owners seem to be really nice people. They were easy to reach and responded to all the queries promptly and politely. The property has a great location, being very close to the river and downtown. We were very satisfied with our choice and had a very memorable experience. We would highly recommend it.

WONDERFUL COUPLE'S GETAWAY!

Wonderful Couple's Getaway!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the upstairs unit with the balcony. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The unit was plenty spacious enough for us, the kitchen was great for making meals and the patio was a wonderful place to relax. And one of the best parts of this place is the location. Right down the road from downtown Saugatuck. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our anniversary!

GREAT LOCATION, BUT NOT RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG KIDS OR FOR MULTIPLE COUPLES

  • 3 of 5
This property is in an excellent location! We felt the best location to stay is on the east side of the river near downtown. We enjoyed walking to get ice cream, play at the park, listen to live music, and check out the shops. While the beach is on the west side it is a long walk from anywhere and the road doesn't have sidewalks- definitely not worth it with young children and beach supplies.

The property has been converted into 3 units. The top unit has a balcony, the back unit has a sunroom, and the front unit has an outdoor seating area. We rented the front unit per the owner's recommendation for our family with young children. He said they would be able to run around in the fenced garden area. But, the garden area is not fully fenced and it is shared space with the sunroom unit. I didn't feel it was appropriate for my kids to be loud next to them. Note: the balcony unit doesn’t have child-safe railing on the balcony.

The bathroom is nicely remodeled, but the people staying in the living room must walk through the bedroom to use the bathroom. No TV in the bedroom, a problem when the kids go to bed at 8pm. The floor is very uneven, which might be a problem for someone with balance issues (like my toddler). The kitchen is nicely remodeled, but no dishwasher. You may want to bring your own sponge and drying clothes as the ones provided were not really functional. The kitchen is mostly stocked, but did lack a few things. Bring left-over containers, foil, saran wrap, etc. and if you want to bake any frozen items in the oven, bring a cookie sheet.

During our stay one of the beams supporting the balcony fell down. Fortunately no one was hurt, but it could’ve been very dangerous. Also, we locked ourselves out. Both doors to our unit have self-locking deadbolts. While the lockboxes were meant to solve this problem, the deadbolts also have a switch on the inside that once flipped will not allow the key to work from the outside. We could have gotten in the back door, but the owners did not supply us with the proper key.

The unit is very clean and it was nice not paying a security deposit or doing any special cleaning when leaving. The owners were readily available by phone, pleasant, and willing to help. The unit was affordable and available for stays shorter than one week. These are all big pros as well as the excellent location. I would recommend this unit for a couple, but not for a family with young kids.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments. Some does not relate to us such as the road conditions or the location of the beach being on the other side of Saugatuck. We also can not change the location of the bathroom and we agree it is for close friends or families. The same is for the TV, as most guests spend time outdoors, and for couples or families one TV in the living room has been practical. We do not advertise a dishwasher. Therefore, we do provide towels and sponges and more is available upon request. We also provide paper towels which are disposable and provide flexibility.

The upstairs has a balcony and railing. This was not were this family stayed and we point that out to our guests and we recommend the lower floor to people who have smaller children. The pictures are on the website for parents to decide and we are glad to provide any details.
The garden is surrounded by bushes which prevent going in and out. We did not say fenced and is large enough in the back to provide an area of playing such as Badminton without disturbing anyone. Of course the noise level has to be appropriate to the neighbors and to a residential area and is mentioned in the contract.
As for the post that fell, we were advised that it had been torn from its bolts and we also found a futon broken in 3 places as well as severely stained chairs. The unit is not damage proof and we fix any damaged items the day it happens as long as we know. The locks we have a standard and we provide only keys for the main entrance which keeps things simple for the renters and we expect that they will be responsible.
We had many renters during the past years and almost everyone has treated our place with great care and we thank all for their care and therefore we do not charge security deposits.

PERFECT PLACE FOR OUR YOUNG FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
This location was ideal for our young family - it was so easy to put our son in the stroller and walk the two blocks to downtown. The veranda offered opportunities for late night dinners without disturbing baby's sleeping. The place was clean and nicely decorated. We had positive customer service from the owner even though we booked at the last minute. The ONLY negative was that I couldn't find a hair dryer and the description stated a hair dryer would be provided. Overall, a great place and I've already recommended this property to others!

Owner's Response: We are sorry for the inconvenience. We have a hairdryer in the closet with the extra towels. We also provide contact numbers for our handyman and he can attend to the needs of our guests.

We thank very much for the compliments and we are glad our guests had an otherwise comfortable and enjoyable stay.
