We live in Indianapolis, and love being able to make the 2 hour 40 minute trek to New Buffalo, our favorite home away from home!
Jamie Pachciarz purchased this condo in 2010
This condo is a perfect place to relax. It is very clean and includes all the amenities you could want. There are multiple beds making it nice for families. The balcony overlooking the pool is a great place to enjoy morning coffee. It is very close to the beach, many restaurants and walking distance to downtown New Buffalo. We will definitely return!
Condo was nice with everything we needed for a great stay. Location was good, and walkable to many places.
Our family of three just got back from a stay at Jamie and Barry's lovely Condo in New Buffalo and I wanted to post a review for others who may be looking at this property. I debated not reviewing so that I could keep this as our own little secret, but Jamie was so wonderful to us during our stay that I had to post.
This is the third year we've rented in New Buffalo, and I think this is our favorite property so far. The condo was CLEAN (my #1 requirement) the decor is very nice, the location is perfect (three or four blocks to Barney's), the air conditioning worked perfectly, and there was even a pool! The beds were comfy, there was lots of storage, and the kitchen was quite functional for what we needed during our stay.
What really makes this property five-star, though, is Jamie. She was so accesible from my first inquiry, and always responded to e-mails quickly, no matter how many questions I asked. And, when we ran into a couple of maintenance issues during our stay, she was more than apologetic and they had their contractor there in a matter of hours to fix the problems. (Thanks, Kim!!!) We've had issues with previous rentals with not having a contact number or anyone to call with problems, but that was absolutely not the case here. For me, this is priceless.
All in all, this really was a perfect stay and we owe a LOT of that to Jamie, and to the lovely condo. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and you shouldn't either!
The property was accurately described and was clean and well maintained. With our kids, we dont fit in a motel room well and we like to have a kitchen to prepare most of our meals. The beach is too far to walk for most people but the pool is nice and was also well maintained. If you are wanting to stay around a lot of people and action, this isn't the place for you. But it was restful and just what we were looking for.
My family had a great time staying in this condo. The place was clean and nicely decorated. The building and pool area was also very well taken care of. The owner responded quickly to my emails and always answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends and relatives. We enjoyed New Buffalo's public beach and also visited Silver Beach in St. Joseph for a day. We would also recommend eating at The Stray Dog Bar and Grill.
From our experience staying at this condo in August 2010, we would like to clarify two misleading sentences used to describe it -- and apparently most other units in this complex available on VRBO:
1) "The location offers [easy walking access to] downtown New Buffalo with boutique shops, fine dining and upscale Marina, plus [the wonderful sandy beaches of Lake Michigan]."
2) "The condo is also located near Four Winds Casino, Oselka Marina, [5 blocks from the beach], and several wineries."
Given that the public beach is over a mile from the complex, we feel these phrases misrepresent the location and distance, and it should be clear to future visitors what they are getting. The condo is a decent value for the price, and others may have a fine experience there, as long as they know there is no beach access within 5 blocks (except for private beaches, which means one would need to tresspass to access them, something we were not comfortable doing). "Easy walking access" is admittedly a subjective assessment, but if you have several small children and beach gear in tow, over a mile probably falls outside your range of "easy," too.
Beyond that, everything else was as described and as shown in photos. The pool is a nice bonus amenity. We drove to the beach each day, and we had an otherwise wonderful vacation in and around New Buffalo.
