                                                            My girlfriends and I loved the house. There were 5 of us, we fit more than comfortably in the house. The house is super clean and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you will need to cook and serve your meals. I hope next year we can stay there again.

                                                            Very nice and clean

                                                            Great weekend getaway with friends

                                                            My family and I have used VRBO numerous times in the past. This by far was our favorite find! Cozy home with all amenities you want including a kitchen so nice, we really didn't care to eat out;-) Days were spent checking out local beaches and Warren Dunes, nights sitting around the fire pit and playing games on the screened in porch. My brother and his girlfriend came down from Chicago for the weekend to join us and we had PLENTY of room! Already talking about another stay! Thank you so much, Chris. You really have a special place to offer!
