Great Rental, So close to the Lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and Anne was great to work with. The house is steps from the beach. We stayed over Halloween weekend and were out of the house more than we were in it. Hoping to be able to take advantage of the great location this summer.

Like a second home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beach cottage. It felt as if we were staying at a friend's house instead of a rental. As a holiday home, there is upkeep and updating that could be done, but it is kept clean (older shower curb a bit moldy and spider webs in places- if being picky) and is very well-equipped. It's very cozy, and personalized, which was great reminder to my kids that we were in someone's HOME. It has a great bedroom and kitchen layout- our family of 4 was able to spread out and have our own space!

We were in/out travelling to LaPorte and Michigan City a lot, so the convenient short stroll down the street to the beach access point (44 steps from street to sand for those it matters to!) was a key factor for us, as we wanted to maximize our time when we were actually there. Beach is a well maintained and private to the neighborhood. Water was crystal clear and lovely. There is a gradual pebble to gravel water entry and we found it more comfortable with water sandals/ shoes (we are just used to pure sand of the Gulf coasts) so plan for that if necessary ;)

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. This home is a hidden gem! Everything you need to have a awesome beach vacation is available for you! Plus the house itself is so nice and clean and has a very home feel. You can't beat the short walk to the beach in this wonderful neighborhood and the private beach was perfect! We will definitely be coming back next summer!!

Perfect for our family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing cute little cottage! This was my first time using VRBO, and I was a little hesitant. However, the owner made everything so simple, and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay! The cottage was clean and well taken care of--- and steps away from the beach! I would recommend this cute Grand Beach Cottage to anyone- and hope to return next summer!

Great week in Grand Beach

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six staying here for the week in June 2010, and we had a great time. The owner was very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process of securing the rental and during the week we were there as well. The house is well-stocked with linens/towels/kitchen supplies, and it was very comfortable - we all agreed that the couch was maybe one of the most comfortable ones we'd ever sat on! :)

The house is on the smaller side, so it'd be good for everyone to be pretty well acquainted if you're going to fill all three rooms. Also, one bedroom is significantly smaller than the other two, so be prepared to have one person or couple end up drawing the short straw there! But again, we were all perfectly comfortable there for the week, and the one block walk to the beach is tough to beat.
