About The Owner

Hi, I'm Dan and I hope you enjoy my home as much as I do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose St Joseph

I have been an avid sailor for the past fifteen years, and every year I would do the Tri-State Regatta. The Regatta is a three day race which stops in each port overnight - Chicago to St. Joe, St. Joe to Michigan City, and Michigan City to Chicago. After several years of doing the regatta, I got to know St. Joe, and feel in love with its beach town charms such as Silver Beach and its cobblestone Main Street. A few years ago, my good friends purchased a home at Island Pointe( the development where my home is in). During a stopover in the Regatta, I bought the home and have never regretted it since. It's the perfect location only an hour and a half from home(Chicago), and as boater having your slip right behind your house - it doesn't get any better or cooler.

What makes this house unique

My home offers much more than the average vacation rental. When I was designing and furnishing the house, I went a little overboard since I knew I would be using it myself quite a bit. I only rent it to defray some of the costs of ownership, and spend several weeks and weekends there throughout the year. The house has all top of the line appliances, electronics, as well as the boat slips behind the house which offer access to Lake Michigan. The development offers a park, river walk, and a community pool and club house. Pretty much everything you'd find at a luxury resort. I hope you enjoy it as I do.

Beautiful home on the water

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 4 couples and having 4 bedrooms with comfortable queen size or larger beds was perfect. Well equipped kitchen and a dining room table that accommodated our group made it a great stay. Daniel was very responsive. We had trouble figuring out how to light the fireplace and he texted me back in 15 minutes. Really convenient location to the beach and downtown St Joseph. Came for a wedding weekend and staying here verses a hotel with our group was our best decision!

Great location on water!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. House was in good condition, spacious, and right on the river. Dan was also really nice to work with. Would stay here again if in the St. Jospeh area.

Beautiful, comfortable, right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend here in early June. The house is fully stocked, has everything you could possible need for a great weekend. Dan was very responsive to any issues or questions we had, helping us figure out how to work the grill and stopping by on Saturday to fix the speakers, which weren't working. He let us stay later on Sunday since no guests were coming until Monday, so we got a chance to check out the great clubhouse pool. Its about a 20 min walk from downtown St Joe's, but feels like a perfect peaceful oasis. With a free parking pass for the beach, its easy to come and go as needed. Plenty of space- fit 8 more than comfortably! Would definitely stay here again if back in St Joe's!

Great home and location in St. Joseph, MI

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home and location, well equipped, and clean. But note, for those with pet allergies like me, this home is not pet free. Pets are generally not allowed, but the owners and some select renters have had pets in the home. When I asked the owner about this, he immediately had the air filters changed! So he is very responsive and concerned. We had a great time staying in this home and would stay there again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week in the house the week my son was getting married. Staying here made getting prepared for the big event easy. The house is very clean, spacious and fully stocked with everything you could need. Sitting on the porch helped us all relax in a stressful time.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend enjoying St. Joseph and area wineries. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. All four bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. We had six adults and there was plenty of room for all of us. Fully stocked kitchen. The porch was great. My husband loved the sound system. The landscaping and grounds of the gated community were beautiful.
