Brand new home. Off street parking for at least 2 vehicles. Flat walkway from parking area to house. Easy walkway to beach.
NEWLY ADDED, GAS GRILL
The house is second to none with spectacular views from every room. The ages in our family group were 5 to 60 we had no problems getting to the beach! Especially liked walking the beach to town, it is a perfect distance. Nobody wanted to leave.
Thank you for sharing a little piece of heaven!
My family has vacationed here twice and the house itself is impeccable. Well-appointed, spacious and a $1M view. The beach is smaller this year but is still an easy walk and cannot be beat. Its stunning.
That said, I feel like there are a few improvements this rental needs in order to command the price point; 1) Cable TV. Yes, we love to "get away" but the kids and some adults need their shows! 2) Internet. Phone service is spotty at best. 3) Washer and dryer. At this price point and on the beach, you simply need it. SAND.
Also, all should be aware that there are no window treatments. Be ready for the entire family to wake at 5am! Lots of stairs to the beach, but an easy walk. Infants and elderly will struggle.
Great spot for a Pentwater vacation! Secluded, beautiful and upscale!
This was one of the most enjoyable vacations we had, because of this wonderful house which still feels like brand new. wonderful materials and a perfect elegant taste of furniture and decors in the entire house! We had a family reunion with people coming from Germany and they couldn't stopp expressing how empressed they were. Walking in the frint door all you see is the big blue lake. The lay out of the house is done so well that you can literally see the lake in every room (including bath rooms facing the back side). The tiney little inconveniances, like not having a washer and dryer, will certainly be eliminated in the near future. But the grill works perfectly fine, never to have to worry if there is enough gas. There is all the needed "tools" in the kitchen to cook, bake, etc. We had a perfect week, wonderful clean and private beach, perfect walkways, bridges from the carparking to the house as well as from the house to the beach. The guidance from the owner, including personal walk thru and explaining of the critical "must knows", is something not to be found easily on rental places.
We can't wait to be back but need to find out how to keep the crowd's away as the word travelled fast!

My first thoughts about this home were that it is even better than the pictures show. All of the family agreed about this. It was built in such a way, that a gorgeous, full view of beautiful blue Lake Michigan greets you at every possible window.
Everything is new and it is tastefully designed and decorated.
The home is three stories, which in and of itself provides privacy. However, their are no window treatments, which is still fine as the location is quite private....however, if you don't want to be awaken by the pretty sunrise, you will want a pair of eye blinds. I would have liked blinds for that purpose and to get the children to bed earlier.
The grill is in a great spot on the huge deck; and is directly hooked to a very large propane tank so no worries about running out mid meal.
There are decks off 3rd floor bedroom, one of the 2nd floor bedrooms, and a large one off the back that can be accessed by large sliders across the back of the house.
The home is on a bluff so be prepared for steps to the beach. Even with small children, it was fine by us. The deck, stairs and walk over were a pleasant walk for us. Just be prepared if you have any elderly or infants; the walk to the beach could be a challenge.
I would say even though there were no blinds on bedrooms and no washer/dryer - it was FANTASTIC. We will very likely stay here next summer.
The home is beautiful, the setting ideal, the beach was just wonderful, and the proximity to Pentwater was just right. Five sisters + 2 friends enjoyed the week immensely with plenty of quality time in an idyllic setting. A few things could make it much more enjoyable and also bring it up to the standard for the cost. Furnishings were mismatched and often of poor quality (cookware and kitchen items especially; knives very inadequate), if provided at all (e.g., no bakeware, no wine glasses, only 2 dish towels but 8 pot holders (???)). The afternoon sun is quite brutal, so window treatments would be a big plus. A washer/dryer would be very helpful as well. The real surprise, though, was the lack of technology. No cell phone reception (therefore for safety really should have a landline), no internet, no TV. We brought our own TV with DVD player so that we could watch movies on occasion. Recommend the stay, but for the cost, we were expecting a bit higher quality furnishings. Also, the beach is very dog friendly. It was torture not having our babies with us. Hoping the owners would consider a pet policy.
Wow! My family and I had a wonderful staycation at this property. It was everything we imagined it to be. The owners were very pleasant and the property is just how they described it. In my own words... It was a place of serenity for our family. There is plenty of room and things to do. The view of Lake Michigan is absolutely beautiful. We highly recommend renting this property!
