Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We have never stayed in a rental home before and were extremely excited when we got to the house. The reason we picked this house was they allow dogs. The house is beautiful. The architecture and furnishings were lovely. There is an in ground pool which was thee other reason we choose this house. The pool is very big and heated..bonus! It is a quick walk to the beach and one of the best restaurants we ate at was just 3 houses down. Very close to New Buffalo too. I would definitely stay here again. Great vacation!

Casual Elegance

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a fantastic fall getaway at this beautiful home this past weekend, it was the perfect retreat! Five fireplaces and an uber elegant design scheme make this home quite the idyllic setting! The large bright great room and attached formal dining room is the perfect place to gather with groups. The surround sound speakers are such a nice feature! I look forward to returning to this lovely home!!

We visit New Buffalo area every year in the fall to meet up with friends and enjoy a ND football game. This is by far the worst house we have rented. We showed up and the "cleaning people" were still there. Not sure what they did, as the house was still dirty. We killed 25+ stink bugs in the master bedroom. No one used that room during our visit. The owner sent a friend over to spray the bedroom.... There was only one bar stool in the kitchen, also a weird table with 2 chairs tucked up to the counter. The ice maker in the kitchen did not work, the garbage drawer did not stay closed-always open, the fireplaces would not light, there was a terrible stench in the entry coat closet, the kitchen cabinets and drawers were in disarray, there were drips on the drawers and no instructions on the house-except a duck taped wi-fi code inside a pantry door. The garage was FULL of broken, discarded furniture-at least one bar stool from the kitchen, no room for a car. The backyard is nice, but the front yard is nothing to speak of. The wood is rotting on the outside of the house and paint is pealing. Please look at the review on August 12, very accurate. We travel all over the world and have used VRBO and have always been happy with the rentals, until now

Owner's Response: These people seemed terribly nice and I am upset that they were disappointed. They did alert me about the bugs which I took care of it immediately. The only other call was wondering if I Had a smaller house as their number had dwindled to four. Did not hear a peep until they left. I offered them $200 which they rejected in favor of a much larger number which I did not agree with. Happy to say most people love the house. I have seven groups who are returning next year: Two for the third year in a row, four for the second year and one for the fifth. Got many compliments On my new cleaner who does a great job.

Elegant Summer Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The Hedges had everything to make a great vacation stay. The gorgeous dining room opens up to a beautiful large pool. It was great to sit by the pool at night with the pool light on and see the sun setting in the distance. Close access to a beautiful beach and near many shops and restaurants. Beautifully appointed but cozy at the same time. Even used one of the fireplace one evening.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our spring-time family gathering. The home is huge, beautiful, in a great area, and has a lay-out that never left us feeling cramped for space. We hope to return this summer!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful vacation house!

We had great NYE weekend at this home. The rooms are big, well decorated; the open layout of the kitchen and living room is perfect for big parties. We loved how the fireplace separates the living and the dining room. There were fireplaces in almost every room. The bedrooms are so nice and the master bedroom in blue is so relaxing. The den has big TV and entertaining system that connect the sound in many rooms. The build in speakers are controlled individually in each room and even outside. We found everything we needed for our stay and the owner let us come and leave anytime we want. That was so awesome, we didn’t have to rush to wake up early in the morning! I will come back at this house anytime!
