Bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for my sister's bachelorette party, and we had the best time! We spent all day Friday hanging out on the deck which has tons of seating. Then Saturday we had a bus pick us up and went to a few of the wineries in the area. The house was so spacious with enough beds for everyone! It was very clean and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again or recommend it to a large group!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Being a seasoned Airbnb user I would like to point out that I really appreciate that HomeAway gives guests a year to write a review versus the forty eight hour window from Airbnb. Thumbs up! Anyway on to the stuff that matters.

Short Review: Should you stay here? Absolutely.

Long Review: Lets cover the aesthetics first. Presentation is key and this property does not disappoint. The exterior appears to have been recently updated and the landscape was well-manicured. Positive impressions continued as we moved on to the interior of the home. The rooms and bathrooms look either freshly painted and/or have been updated with fitting décor. So to sum it up, the home looks as good if not better than the pictures posted. Same can be said about the levels of cleanliness. We utilized almost every square foot of this property (including our fair share of cooking) and everything we touched was clean and well-maintained.

Let’s dive in to the amenities. We stayed during the fall months (mix of warm and cold weather) and I am happy to report that the central heating/cooling kept everyone comfortable across all three floors. The water pressure was great and we had ample hot water for everyone. Internet/Wifi connectivity was excellent! Uploaded almost half a gig of photos and streamed video with no hiccups at all. Also bundled with the entertainment aspect, you get a plethora of HD channels to watch plus the NFL Sunday Ticket. Did I mention that there is nice soundbar attached to main TV? Yup, entertainment covered for kids and adults alike.

The neighborhood is peaceful and close to the lake. Actually the marina and main town area are short walk away which made our walks to The Stray Dog (bar&grill with excellent food) a pleasant trip. Lots of shops and local goods can all be found on N Whittaker Street. Same goes for the grocery store and anything else you may possibly need. Quick search on google maps gave us at least a dozen or so local eateries to visit. Glad to say we covered everybody’s food preferences without a hitch.

Overall I have really enjoyed my stay here and plan on making this a annual destination.

P.s. Big thank you to the owners for making this a very comfortable and pleasant trip.

Great rental property for a week or weekend away

  • 5 of 5

This is a vary large and welcoming home for friends and family to enjoy. I was impressed by the amount of room we had for having 10 plus people staying in the same house. The owners make the house comfortable and welcoming for us to enjoy during our stay. There are many things to do around the area that this house was right in the center of all the action. Not far from the beaches, resteraunts or downtown New Buffalo. The owners have worked hard at making the house nice and enjoyable and I'd recommend this rental to anyone. I will be coming back again

Gorgeous & fabulous getaway stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway! The home was very well kept and accommodating for a large group (15+). The home description was spot on! It was very clean, comfy, and cozy. The home is update and beautifully furnished. There are many flat screen TVs through out the home, with a shuffle board and gaming activities in the basement. In addition, there is a very large patio with furniture, as well as two nice grills. At night we enjoyed cooking in two different kitchens with the ambiance of a nice fireplace. The location and amenities were accurate to the description. Upon arrival, the home owner was extremely organized with planning, and familiarizing the large group to the area by providing us with many activities. To name a few, our couples group enjoyed a whisky distillery, 4 wineries, The Marina Grande Hotel, The Four Winds Casino, and the Stray Dog restaurant. The homes is walking distance to the beach, marina, and downtown area. All in all, the customer service couldn't have been any better, and the trip was a blast. I would highly reconmend this home for all seasonal trips, and of guest of all ages!
