We are a family of 5 from the Chicago Area.
Andy purchased this house in 1999
Sue (My Wife) grew up in Holland, MI. Sky's Beach was the perfect spot for family vacations and being close to our extended family.
We are directly on the Water and have beautiful views of the lake from every bedroom, A giant deck and play area make Sky's the perfect spot for a Lake Michigan vacation.
We had 2 hour walks on the beach, grilled, sipped wine and relaxed.
Your house is beautiful and the perfect location on the water.
I use VRBO often, and this rental was one of the nicest I've seen. The house is spacious, clean, well-equipped and modern (but quaintly decorated). The views are awesome and it's proximity to nearby towns is very convenient.
The owner was very responsive to emails and the guest packet he provided in advance was well organized and thorough.
It's a definite "do-again"!
My family and I were looking for a long "beach weekend" on Lake Michigan, and Sky's Beach was a wonderful spot. The house was clean and well-appointed but very comfortable (you didn't feel like you couldn't touch anything for fear of mussing or breaking it), the kitchen worked well for multiple meal preparers to work simultaneously, the dining room table was large enough to fit us all, the living room and daybed nook were very inviting, the wraparound screened porch and deck were lovely, the bedrooms comfortable and the views plentiful and absolutely spectacular. We're already talking about renting it again next year! The only challenge we had was that none of us had cell phone service (even with multiple carriers), but it was also kind of nice to just unplug for a while! This is definitely a lovely spot for a larger group.
Saw an opportunity to use Sky's Beach for a weekend in early May. You never know what to expect in Michigan that time of year, but we hit it right and had an awesome "off-season" get away weekend. It's a big house for just two people, but the quiet and serenity in May is amazing. Talk about having the beach to yourself! I saw my wife get as relaxed as I have ever seen :-)
There's a new restaurant 0.5 miles away (walkable) that is a must see! Sandy Point Beach House.
Home is always clean and well maintained. Owner is easy to work with.
While I'd recommend this place for a summer, family vacation, consider it for a romantic, quiet weekend in the off season too.
We stayed here the weekend after Thanksgiving. Had 5 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children - plenty of space (sleeping and bathroom) for all! Short trip to Holland for Turkey Trot 5k race. Standing on the beach in the November gales is powerful, but watching the morning wind and waves from bed in the upper floor Master bedroom is great too! Brought our food and clothes and that's it - everything else (linens, towels, games, movies, etc.) was on hand. Log book of past visitors was entertaining. Notebook of information (including Wi-Fi codes!) was very helpful.
No stairs to the beach is a great feature of this place.
Everything was clean and well maintained. Felt more like being a guest in a friend's home than a rental.
Owner was very easy to work with. Good communication.
Have and will continue to recommend "Sky's Beach" to friends and relatives!
We enjoyed our stay at Sky's Beach immensely as a retreat following our son's graduation. So much so that when our second son graduated two years later, we wanted nothing more than to return to Sky's Beach - and we don't often repeat a vacation! Eight of us (multigenerations) soaked in the peace and beauty of the property and there were spaces for privacy and communing for all. The private beach is in full view from nearly every room of the house. The property is immaculate, well appointed and equiped and can easily accomodate a large group. Thewarm and welcoming property is wonderfully tucked away in a private area, however Grand Haven and Holland are an easy bike ride away (bike path) and shopping is a short drive as well.
Highlights: gorgeous sunsets, bikes and beach equipment provided, lovely deck with grill, beach fire pit, spectacular master suite, 4 baths plus outdoor shower, porches galore, basement area for kids, and did I mention those sunsets? :)
The owners have thought of everything for this home and are wonderful to work with. We would definately return to Sky's Beach!
