GREAT PLACE FOR A GENERATIONAL FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
The listing is right on. The house is exactly as the photos show it. The basement bedroom is full of natural light and is roomy and has its own full bath. There is plenty of open public space and private space also. We ranged in age from 10 months to 74 years and there was plenty to do for all. No one had any trouble managing the stairway to and from the beach, even our 3 year old. The kitchen has anything you could need for food preparation, we enjoyed cooking and even the cleanup!
We also enjoyed oval beach, downtown Saugatuck, walking on the beach road and especially the fire ring. The hot tub was also a hit.
We had four families, 12 people, and had all of the space that we needed and then some.
This s a well maintained property in a great location.

WE LOVE MICHIGAN SUNSETS AND THE BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been coming from Pennsylvania to summer vacation here in Michigan over 40 years. We have stayed at many places over that time and love the Douglas and Saugatuck area. We were fortunate several years ago to fine The Beach House. It is a wonderful house and a great location with beach access one block away. It has a large kitchen, dining area and screened in porch which is great for our large group. We also love the fire pit. Can't say enough good about the house and it is in excellent condition. But the best thing about Michigan are the beautiful Sunsets. We never get tired of seeing them. You will not be disappointed staying at The Beach House or Lake Michigan.

EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL BEACH HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, ten adults and four children ages 10 months to four years, had an awesome time in this well maintained, tastefully decorated, beautifully landscaped, spacious home. The sofas, chairs, and beds were very comfortable. The open design of the kitchen, dining area, and family room provided great play space for the kids and together space for the family. The screened porch, away room, and lower level area allowed small groups to disperse for different activities. We ate most of our meals at the house and the well equipped, large kitchen permitted several people to easily prepare and clean up meals. Most evenings we loved sitting around the fire pit; the garage had an ample supply of wood for burning. Although the steps to the beach were a bit daunting, that did not deter any of us from enjoying the very nice association beach or carrying one of the greatly appreciated high quality sand chairs in the garage for our use at the beach. The street from Lake Shore to this house is quiet and surrounded by beautiful well land scaped homes. Our grandsons loved riding their scoot bikes up and down this street. The pictures shown of this house are accurate. Our family would love to rent this house again.

SUMMER WEEK WITH EXTENDED FAMILY & GRANDKIDS

Summer Week with Extended Family & Grandkids
  • 5 of 5
This beach house is beautifully appointed, in a very peaceful setting (mix of water and woods), and a close drive to great beach towns (South Haven, Holland, Grand Rapids). Mike is easy to work with & friendly. Regarding the house, the rooms are separated around the home so families can section off on different floors/areas for privacy. The room w/ 2 twin beds & 2 trundles worked great for the kids. The home had everything we could want (large kitchen, screen porch, BBQ, parking, etc.) and fit all 8 adults and 3 kids happily. The only downside to this home is there are a lot of steep stairs to climb to reach the beach and the local public pools are less than desirable. Overall - wonderful family vacation!

PMT (ILLINOIS)

  • 5 of 5
It's my pleasure to write a review for the Beach House. The property is ideally located one block from the Lake Michigan beach (association access) on the premier Lakeshore Drive location in Saugatuck/Douglas (a long road and bluff overlooking the lake). The home is spacious, has all the amenities, is tastefully decorated, and is one of the most well-kept properties at which we've stayed.

We have at least 5 adults and 5 children with us on these trips and there is ample room for all from the basement for the kids, screened porch and sunroom for secluded privacy, spacious bedrooms, and a beautiful, open floor plan on the main level with a spacious kitchen/dining area. (The photos don't do the property justice and the listing of amenities is spot on).

We have visited Southeastern Michigan for 1 week each summer since 2004 and have sampled a number of vacation homes. This property is so excellent that we have stayed here 3 times in the past 5 years (2007, 2010, 2012). And, we will return.

The owners are extremely pleasant to work with, prompt in communications, and go the extra mile to ensure their local property manager coordinates any on-site service necessary. I would highly recommend this property for almost any group.

ANOTHER FANTASTIC WEEK IN MICHIGAN AT A WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
I cannot put into words how relaxing this home is. From the moment you enter with the welcoming note and the bottle of wine, until the time you leave you feel extremely relaxed & at home. The house is much larger than we expected. We had a very large group (10 adults, 8 kids) and had plenty of room for everyone. Even with the large group you had plenty of space for privacy time. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook every night. I cant think of one thing missing that would have made for a better week.

The yard is beautiful and very private. The kids loved the nightly smores on the patio and it is a great setting to enjoy a drink and reflect on the day's events. The owners were very responsive, easy to work with, and had everything prepared for us to do nothing but sit back and enjoy our week. We cant wait to do it again next year!

Please note, the steps to the beach are a bit steep. If you have trouble walking steps, its going to be a challenge for you. That being said, we had a woman in her mid 60's who went up and down the steps to the beach everyday without issue, just taking her time.
