Great place for a girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us ladies came in from Chicago and had a marvelous time! The house was perfect and Tina was a delight to work with. The house had everything we needed, was clean, and very comfortable.. The weather wasn't bad and we enjoyed our trip into St. Joe.

WE will definitely be back

***If you rent this property, please make it a point to walk through and note how you have left the house so your family is not wrongfully accused of damage done after you have left (take pictures if possible).

I have to start by saying we loved our time at Midway bluff. There was lots of room, a very comfortable house, and many things to do in the area.

Our experience fell short when it came to working with the property manager, Tina. Through email, I inquired about when my deposit would be returned, the response was not what I expected.

First, we were accused of late checkout, although we left right at 10 AM. It is important to note that after speaking to Tina about the fact that we had left by the appropriate checkout time, she offered to refund a portion of the deducted amount from the deposit (which I have not yet received after 3 and a half weeks after emailing her).

In addition to late checkout, we were accused of tampering with the owners’ locked closet, leaving the house a mess, and breaking a wardrobe.

We have rented houses across Michigan for years as a family, and as the grandkids grow older we make it a point to leave the houses is in the condition we found them. It is very upsetting to be accused of the items that she listed, even though we made every effort to leave the house in the condition we found it (and better; when we arrived there was sand and dust on all the floors throughout the house and stairs, which we swept, and two of the toilets in the house hadn’t been cleaned in some time).

You can't help but feel like the "late check out", the broken locked closet, the broken bedroom closet, the scattered bedding and cushions were all a trap so that a portion of the deposit could be withheld.

I was very sad that such a wonderful getaway will always be tainted with this negative experience.

Beautiful and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for my 30th birthday. It was spacious, beautiful, and comfortable. The pictures are great, but it's even better in person. There was space for all of us. The beach is nice and very private. We cooked, grilled out, took long beach walks, made s'mores. The house has everything we needed, and none of us wanted to leave. I'd love to come back!

New,spacious and comfy.Views from decks amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We were here to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary with our whole family and grandkids. 11 total , 5 kids ranging from 9 mo to 12 yrs. Plenty of space for children to play. The fire pit and outdoor shower was very much fun for them. All the ammenities were good, and the house never was hot with the warm weather. The beach was amazing with the sand bars and one day had great waves for everyone to enjoy. We had 6 perfect sunsets and plenty of activities to do near Coloma. The children museum in St. Joe is great for a day of fun. Cannot wait to have the experience of this area of Michigan again. Great time and wonderful memories were shared. Thank You Tina

Beautiful Home - Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and spacious home that provided the backdrop for a family reunion. The pristine beach with white sand and crystal clear water should be on a top 10 list but thankfully, it is not. Working with Tina was a joy and she is one of the most honest people I have ever met. I would happily recommend this property. The grandkids loved every minute we were there and want to go back for sure. We cooked all our meals and the guys loved outdoing each other with bacon and pancakes and eggs. What a great time we had. Also, the home is very well situated with regards to getting around and visiting other areas.

A Perfect Home for a Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our winter weekend getaway included family members aged 2 1/2 to grandparents and we all LOVED this house. The interior is light, spacious, airy, well-equipped, welcoming...wonderful. Customer service was great, with speedy, friendly communication throughout the process.

Our 3 families appreciated that each could "take over" one bathroom as their own, with another 1/2 to spare. The elementary age girls were thrilled to have their own quarters on the third floor complete with 3 twin beds, a TV, and a huge sectional to lounge on. The toddler loved her day bed in the second floor family room and each couple enjoyed their own comfortable room.

One other thing that we loved in this house were the hardwood floors throughout...you will always know where your little herd of kidlets are. This could be an issue for someone that has an aversion to noise but we rather liked knowing where everyone was at all times. ;)

If you're considering this home you might like to know that the wonderful high ceilings do require a lot of stairs to get between floors....18 up to the second floor and another 18 steps to the third floor. This was no problem for us but is something to be aware of if someone in your group can't climb easily.

The view of the lake is terrific and it was even warm enough one day for us to explore the beach.

We hope to gather at this home again - it's a winner.
