RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation to Lake Michigan. We usually vacation on Carolina Beaches, and this trip definitely surpassed our expectations - we felt like we were at the ocean (but this was even better). Our weather was perfect. The water was perfect for swimming and so clear. We rented paddle boards at public beach and easily paddled down to our private beach. We spent most of our time on the beach and at the house, but did eat dinner out twice. Maria's is great for Italian and Su Casa for Mexican.

The listing photos and description accurately reflect the house - so charming and lovely - very much a beach cottage feel. The owners have done a wonderful job decorating. The home was very clean and well-maintained. We had 7 adults (our parents who are 78, our adult children age 24, 24, and 19, and my husband & I are 52). The owners have stocked the house with everything you can imagine. Spices, condiments, coffee, paper products, etc. We have stayed in many vacation rentals, and have never had such a well stocked place. All the kitchen gadgets, etc. were newer and in great condition (sharp knives, etc.) and made you want to actually use the kitchen! The owners have several bikes, which we rode into town. It is a 3 minute bike ride to public beach, 5 minutes to marina, and maybe 10 minutes to downtown.

Our only negative comment would be the access to the private beach, which once you get to is wonderful - very private. Our parents, who are in their late 70's, had a difficult time getting up and down the pool ladder to the beach. I will say, the owners made us aware of this situation prior to our arrival. Thankfully, our parents are in pretty good shape and were troopers and came with us everyday. There are also a lot of steep steps, which wasn't terrible for us, but is for older parents. There is the option of the public beach, which is about a 8-10 minute walk - 3 minute bike ride. However, we loved the private beach, even with the access issue. Hopefully, the owners association will have a better beach access approved.

The patio-area is beautifully landscaped - very relaxing for morning coffee, evening cocktails. There is a fire pit with stocked firewood.

Overall, It was the perfect getaway - we hope to return. The owners were very gracious and helpful. Thank you again for sharing your home with our family. We would definitely recommend to family and friends.

COMFORTABLE AND CHARMING RETREAT.

  • 5 of 5
This home is very well stocked so you don't have to bring the sugar and salt and spices for every dish. Surrounded by trees with a great shaded patio- a great place to return to after sunning at the beach. Lots of steps to the beach but not far to walk and awesome to have your own beach! SO nice to have a place that accepts shorter rentals- we were here for a family reunion and no one had a full week available. Held 8 adults very comfortably. Could easily add a couple of kids to that.

GOOD LOCATION, BUT COULD USE SOME UPDATING

  • 3 of 5
First of all, let me state that the new owners were extremely gracious and helpful.

While the location of this house is convenient - close to the beach and Kids Park - it is on a stretch of road that is more heavily shaded by trees, and doesn't feel quite as "beachy". Access to the private beach is ok, but the stairs are steep and I was very nervous bringing my young children down them. Finally, the house is fine but could certainly use some updating. The week that we were there was quite rainy, and the house felt a bit "damp". I think a few minor touches - replacing carpet, adding central AC - would make a world of difference.

Owner's Response: We have become the owners of this property recently and we wanted to honor all the rentals that were in place for this summer. In the transition of ownership we were not able to make any improvements this summer and not disrupt those we whom we were sharing the home with. Improvements and updates in areas of the property are planned (including the carpet) for the off-season time. As for the beachy feel- a fair comment- we do not walk directly onto the beach or have an obvious water-view, the convenience to our own section of beach is special and will be improved upon with consultation in our Home Owner Association. Meantime, a secluded private garden patio offers a restful gathering place throughout the year and can speak to other's tastes as well in family events.
