Beautiful house but a few issues

  • 3 of 5

The house is absolutely gorgeous, the pictures do not do it justice. About 15 min from downtown Pentwater and 20 min from Ludington, so location was great. I only gave 3 stars because he didn't provide any paper towels or napkins or hand soap in bathrooms. Only gave 2 rolls of toilet paper. Bugs came in through bathroom window and multiplied and got all over our stuff so we couldn't use that bathroom. I emailed him immediately about the problem and he didn't respond until a few days later. The day before our trip he emailed a list of rules. We were supposed to wash all towels and dry them before we leave, as well as dishes. Not a problem but again, he doesn't provide soap. Pretty sure we used dirty towels and dishes from the people that stayed before us. The biggest disappointment however, is he doesn't mention just how many stairs there are to take down to the water. There's a ton! We walked all the way down only to find that the stairs literally ended in the water. We couldn't put chairs out or go for a walk on the beach. The pictures on the site lead you to believe there's a beach. Even if the water is currently high, and at some point you are able to enjoy the beach, the amount of stairs doesn't make for easy trips back and forth to the house. It would be waaaay too much for young kids. You are better off going to the public beach.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

While the pictures posted online were beautiful, it simply didn't do the property justice. The views were spectacular and the stay was amazing. If we had any questions or comments the owner was available to answer any questions. Overall a great stay and will be looking forward to staying here again.

A Dream Vacation Come True

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with our family in an area that holds many memories, as we camped at Mears State Park in Pentwater when our children were young. It was like a dream vacation; the home is beautiful and spacious and the setting breathtaking! The accommodations were perfect for our family: private first floor bedroom for us, the grandparents; the bonus room was just right for the son & family who value their privacy & quiet; the other two couples had the "rooms with the view" and the granddaughters had the room with twin beds. We loved relaxing on the back porch & watching the grandchildren run & play; we were surprised by how large the back lawn is. Our kids did the cooking and all loved the spacious, functional kitchen (with a view also!) There are a lot of steps down to the beach but there are several beaches nearby with easy access, & since we love the Pentwater area we enjoyed activities in and around the village also. We so enjoyed our week here that we have already booked for next summer. We'd highly recommend it!

Beautiful House in a Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with two grandparents, three families with four young children and this excellent house had room to spare. It was well appointed with great woodwork. The back patio and lanscaping with an amazing view made for a great gathering place. The water was cold one day warm the next which is the way this lake is, but the beach was great. The stairs are a good workout but not bad. The view is worth the climb. The owner was responsive and available. We would stay again if we go back.

Beautiful Home/View

  • 4 of 5

The home is exactly as the pictures represent. The view is spectacular and the house is spacious, pristine and comfortable with all the amenities. Plenty of space for 4 adults and 5 kids ages 9-12 with space to spare. Morning coffee on the porch is fabulous given the view and the privacy. The weather was perfect which afforded plenty of beach time. The stairs to the beach are a hefty climb, but well worth it. We would visit again in a heartbeat.

Caution: Difficult to get deposit back

  • 2 of 5

Absolutely beautiful house! My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier! The house was amazing and we had the beach to ourselves the entire week - it was a perfect honeymoon destination. Our frustrations began when, nearly 8 weeks after our stay, we still had not received our deposit back. We sent several emails, and left several phone messages, to the owner, without a single response. We even went as far as to threaten legal action, and still received no response. After some time, we decided to cut our losses. Then, this winter my husband decided to have another go at contacting the owner. We sent a request to the owner, asking about the cost of the deposit to rent the house, and received an email response within days. Once my husband told him who we were, and that we still had not received our deposit, the owner stopped responding. After yet another email, the owner finally responded, saying simply that a check was being mailed to us and he was sorry that it was late. It's now been more than a week since that response and we still have not seen the check. We had hoped to return to this house each year to celebrate our anniversary, but at this point we are just hoping to get back the money that was promised to us.

Owner's Response: In response to this review I indeed was not prompt in returning this couples security deposit. There was damages done to the property and I was trying to come to an agreement on the amount to be deducted from the deposit. They would not agree to any amount to be deducted. Since then the security deposit has been returned. I emailed and asked for a posting stating that it was paid and received no response. If we do rent in the future no security deposit will be paid by tenant, instead a insurance policy through Home Away called the Property Damage Protection by CSA will need to be taken out by the tenant. I hope that this review response was helpfull in explaining the situation.
