My friends and I had a wonderful relaxing time away from the city at this very nice townhouse. Everything was exactly as described. The beds were comfortable, it was very peaceful there. The beach was a short drive/walk away. Would definitely stay again!
Let`s start from the cons. Only one, we had only 3 days to spend there and I wish we had more. Pros, the house is new and big for at least 3 families (like us). Very nice house with big space for the children to play and run around. The bedrooms were so comfy. I assumed that the mattresses were new, very nice sleep. Bathrooms clean and big. Get ready for cooking and enjoying the patio. The basement was not finished, but when it will be finished, the house will have even more space for more people. We were 5 adults, 3 toddlers and 2 babies. We had so much fun and we recharge our batteries. The owner did not bother us at all. We took the keys and that was it. When we ask for something, they had it. Even via email, their response was in the next couple of hours. The beach was so clean and great for children, but for us too. Many mosquitos at night because you are in the woods and nature, but the owner had told us and we were ready. MANY WINERIES!!!!!!!! Plus farms for fruits and meat. St. Joseph was 10 minutes. Very nice small town with great people. Summing up, it was a great experience and we will do it again when we have the time. A big THANK YOU to the owners for the great house they rented to us and the excellent communication.
This was a business trip. Some minor problems with the house, but the owner worked with me to solve them the best she could. Great and peaceful location near beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan. If my work brings me back to this area I would stay here again.
This is a beautiful home with plenty of room to spend with your family and/or friends. It is very private with a large deck and grill, which was very nice. The fire ring is a nice touch, but we did not get to use it. The home is very clean and well maintained. The beach is very close and neighboring towns, such as St. Joe and Benton Harbor, are easily reached within ten minutes. The owner is very nice, responding quickly to e-mails, and providing the needed information for our stay. I would definitely recommend this house to others. It is the perfect home away from home - you will not be disappointed.
We had four adults and three children staying at this house for 4 nights, and we had a very enjoyable stay. The home is beautiful, and had everything we could have needed...we ate in each night, and the kitchen was well stocked, and there is a gas grill on the deck. Also, all of the beds were very comfortable! Would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it for anyone that's considering renting here!
It was a pleasure to rent from this owner -- she provided all of the information we needed in a timely manner, and was quick to refund the deposit. The photos are a great representation of this lovely new home -- it is in a secluded location in the woods, very quiet (but lots of bugs!) The home was clean and well-maintained -- could use some lighting in the living room and some table lamps in the bedrooms. It is a bit of a drive to nice restaurants (St. Joseph/Benton Harbor or South Haven), but a beautiful Lake Michigan beach is very close! We have already recommended this home to others.
