Great Stay in a Great Location

Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St. Joseph and the beach glass bungalow. The place is adorably decorated, CLEAN, and just the right size for us the feel like we had space to relax after a day at the beach, shopping, dune rides and lots of sightseeing.

When we arrived we were a little surprised by the outside appearance, though not in a negative way. The owners have obviously take a great deal of pride in converting the old motel into unique bungalows and it has an artistic feel to it. The inside is immaculate, the kitchen is very well equipped for cooking, the bathroom was a nice size and nicely redone and the bedroom offered plenty space.

They backyard area seemed nice but we did not spend time out there -- we were too busy exploring the towns and beaches, as it was our first visit to the St. Joseph/South Haven area - and will definitely not be our last!

I would also like to mention that the owners were extremely easy to work with and cared very much that we had an enjoyable stay -- which we did!

The one suggestion I would make would be to replace the bedroom mattresses. They were not horrible, but would make for a more comfortable stay.

Overall, the bungalow was a lovely place for our family to come back to after a day in the sun and we look forward to coming back soon!!

Great Place for the Price you pay

The property is very cute in the inside, but when we first arrived we where thrown off by the actual street location, its in front a “main” street and its adjacent to some other properties that look like either they where a commercial buildings at some point or an old storage place that where converted to “bungalows”

There is really nothing good at walking distance; if you don’t want to drive and want to walk around “town” this is definitely not the place to stay.

But we really didn’t matter the location, as our plan was to be out and about every day.

The Kitchen is perfect we where able to have breakfast and couple of dinners with no problems, loved that the house had some board games and couple of kids movies that helped entertainment during the morning routine.

The backyard is nice, but we never used it as we where never there.

The major detail where the mattresses, I would recommend the landlord/owner changing them as they do not offer any support, our back hurt every morning and after the second day my wife and I where taking turns sleeping in the futon.

Also take your own water and be prepared for the smell of the water when you take a bath or brush your teeth it has the most sulfur smell I have ever experienced inside a house. And the AC unit is on the kitchen side of the house, you will have a freezing temperature there and somewhat hotter temperature in the bedroom, it wasn’t completely uncomfortable but there is a ceiling fan and they have a wall unit inside the closet, so we where ok…but not super great, specially after the first sun burns.

Besides that it all went great, we visit from Indiana dunes, Michigan City, St Joe, South Haven, Sagatuk, Douglas, Grand Haven and Muskegon, went to all the beaches, Michigan Adventure park, Tabor Hills Wine Tour, the boat cruise in Sagatuk, etc.

All the beaches are wonderful the towns are really small but a joy to walk around, we def bring back great memories, our kids loved it and we where able to get a tan, gain couple of pounds and had great family fun.

I would recommend this place if you don’t mind driving to the beach between 10min and 1hour and half and you don’t want to pay inflated prices to be inside the actual tourist town.

Overall great times in a decent bungalow

This place was great for what our family needed. The flat was clean, decorated nicely and very welcoming when we arrived The kitchen had what we needed to cook a few meals as well as had many restaurants in the area. The loction was perfect for what our family wanted to do...Blueberry picking as well as go to the beach. We visited a number of different beaches within a minute to 15 minutes of the flat. We had a great time and will return in the future.

This bungalow is a clean, comfortable vacation spot in a quiet and peaceful area. Great location - very close to the water as well as restaurants and grocery stores, but yet very private. It had everything we needed for a short vacation (appliances, air conditioning, etc.) and the renters were wonderful - they followed up with us to make sure our visit was 100% enjoyable. We will definitely visit again! Perfect for a weekend getaway!

Perfect Getaway

We loved our stay at the Sand Dollar Flat! The home is in a perfect location to access two beaches within a mile of the rental, and we spent some time every day at the beach playing in the sand and lake or taking in the beautiful sunsets. The Sand Dollar Flat is just a short drive to both St. Joe's and South Haven, but is in a smaller town that allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle and crowds of a larger area. The home was impeccably clean and had every ammenity that we could have wanted. Thanks for the great vacation rental Cris! We loved it so much that we're looking for property of our own in the area.
