Pine Bay Beautiful
This was a great home. We look for location and atmosphere. This was perfect! The house fit us very well. Vacationed with our children and 2 grand children. They were able to have the bottom level all to themselves. The house was well stocked and very clean. Access to attractions, downtown, events, shopping and restaurants was excellent. We were very pleased
The home was perfect for a family of 6 including a 2 yo. Outdoor eating, grilling, lots of yard space. Kitchen nice and spacious and light. Property manager was very responsive. Only downside was high lake levels. Pier and dock still not useable. This hampered boating activities as docking would be a challenge. The rest was great.
Checked out three nights early
The house itself has been nicely redone. It was comfortable. For the price we paid per night, we were disappointed with the grounds (unable to use the water, active nest of mice in the fire pit and what appeared to be fruit flies in the kitchen). We had envisioned a beach house. This is NOT a beach house. During our stay, there was absolutely no way to use the water, not even to sit by it to enjoy it. We spent all of our time on the large shaded deck. Additionally, we were not able to control the temperature in the basement rooms and the only additional, and needed blankets were light, fleece, small blankets with a note written on notebook paper that said don’t use. We left 3 nights early because there just wasn’t anything to do there, but sit on the shaded deck. If we had been paying half of what we paid, we might have felt differently. We enjoyed our stay because we were gathered with family for our daughter’s wedding. To date, we haven’t heard from anyone regarding the return of our security deposit. The neighbors were lovely and helpful.
We are certainly concerned you were not satisfied with your stay! There is no beach advertised for this property - only a dock and due to record high water levels everywhere along Lake Michigan much of the waterfront is not accessible this summer. As much as we would love to be able to control this it is simply beyond anyones ability. We leave extra thermal blankets in every bedroom - the blankets noted were stored in the owners closet and not typically used by guests. We would have been happy to drop off any extra blankets needed had we been notified as our office is just down the road.
Award winning downtown Holland is just a short 10 minute drive and brimming with restaurants , shopping , farmers market, a new movie theatre and live music. We are truly sorry you were not able to enjoy all this beautiful vacation spot has to offer...
Very efficient and easy
Wonderful Family Vacation Home
Beautiful view and deck. Great space for a family vacation. Very clean. Beds were comfortable!
Location is perfect for the state park and restaurants. A very quick ride to the downtown area. House has ALOT to offer, plenty to do for kids. Water level is up of course, so could not use the dock to fish...... Mother Nature sometimes doesn’t cooperate. Good stay overall and a very nice property!
