A great place to be

  • 5 of 5

Our family and good friends enjoyed the chance to visit, rest and nurture our souls at this ideally located, well appointed cottage. It's just steps away from the main street shops, restaurants and the beautiful beach with spectacular sunsets! Would highly recommend this property.

Great Family Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for the second summer in a row. We have 2 small children and the layout of the cottage was great for them. There is a huge porch where we enjoyed many cups of coffee, a nice grassed side yard where the kids could play, and a great little 2 level backyard with fire pit. There's even a high chair and toddler bed in the storage shed we could use.

The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans and knives....everything you'd need to make a meal (could use a cheese grater). The dining table is great for family meals! Surprisingly, you can't hear anyone from the bedrooms if you're playing cards at the kitchen table.

We love this place because of the location to the main strip and beach. We are able to go out for a walk for ice cream or hit up the bars for a cold pint.

We would definitely rent this place again! Brain was very quick to return our security deposit.

Great stay, great location, affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 men rented out this cottage for the weekend. Our stay was nothing short of incredible! The pictures do not justify the cottage’s size, nor how nice looking it was on inside and out! All of us fit very comfortable in the cottage. It was very clean on arrival, as well as, pleasantly chilled thanks to the portable AC. The kitchen was well equipped: fridge, stove, toaster, coffee machine, tableware, etc.

We spent most of our time in the spacious two-level backyard which was nicely shaded and included a patio set and BBQ (which we used a lot!).

Also, the neighbours were very friendly and accommodating! Neighbours on both sides had no concerns with us playing our music in the backyard (mind you, we were respectable about the noise level and we did shut it at a reasonable time).

If I was nit-picking, and had to choose a negative, it would be the two car lot parking. We, unfortunately, had three cars so one had to pay for parking. So, if you’re going up with a group, make arrangement for carpooling if you want to avoid parking fees.

The property owner, Brian, was very good to work with! He responds quickly through email and phone!

Quick story:

On one of days, one of our guys (I confess, it was me) accidently broke part of the dining room wooden table and then fixed it with carpenter’s glue. We were worried about losing our security deposit, but Brian still returned our security deposit full-knowing that we broke it. Thank you, Brian!

All in all, it’s a great stay in a great location (Main strip and beach within minutes). We thought it was very affordable, and a great property owner to deal with!

Will recommend to anyone!

Had an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights with 8 other women. We all thought the place was great! We could go walking on the main drag when ever we wanted. Clean and cozy. Brian was easy to book with. Would recommend renting this place if you are looking to book in Grand Bend.

Cozy cottage, great location!

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is right off of the main strip so it is close to the beach as well as the main bars, restaurants and pubs. Very cozy and comfortable. Backyard is great for BBQing and has a cute fire pit area down below. Cottage itself and backyard is better portrayed in person than what pictures show. Overall experience was memorable and would recommend for others to stay here. Owner is very nice to deal with. Will rent from this owner again . :)

Comfortable, well equipped, great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of teenagers spent a week here this summer and had a great time with all the things there is to do in Grand Bend for that age group. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Loved having the fireplace in the backyard as well as the seating on the patio for relaxing through the day. The owners were very good to deal with, lots of good information and made sure our stay got off to a good start. We also received our security deposit back with no hassles. Thanks for a great experience!
