Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends went there for the New Year’s. It was a total of four families and there was still more room left. We had a great time on our vacation. This home is beautiful!!! Very modern and spacious. The kitchen was breath taking, it was big, well equipped and very functional. The whole house is decorated with great taste and it is a true luxury home. The home was clean and had all the amenities we could hope for. There was plenty of towels even with kids using the hot tub all the time.

All bedrooms upstairs have huge windows and access to balcony facing Lake Michigan. The view is spectacular!

Kids had fun in the basement with games and the TV. The whole family enjoyed the hot tub.

Even though it was winter we were able to walk down to the beach and enjoy the view and privacy. I can’t wait to go back there in the summer!

We celebrated my wife's birthday here and had about 14 people attend the get together. There was easily enough room for everyone to spend time together. We had a great time and a wonderful view. The house is extremily modern and beautiful. The beauty of the house is stuck in our eyes and we can't wait to go back. Thank you Chris.

vacation nightmare

  • 1 of 5

I stayed at this house with my family for 4 nights. We had problems with the insects in the house. Everytime we put food on the counter flies came out of no where. we also had a problem with the plumbing. The water was leaking into the kitchen and it looked like work was done on the property not long before we got there, but wasn't done right. When we called the owner we got no help. He just said not to use the bathroom. I paid a lot of money to have 5 bathrooms and didn't want to be told that I couldn't use them. I also had a problem getting my deposit back. I still never got it back. And the owner does not respond to any of my emails or messages.

Spectacular Modern Home High on the Bluff

  • 4 of 5

We spent a last minute Labor Day weekend at this fabulous house. The views are breath-taking and the home is clean and well-appointed. Plenty of room for kids to play in the back yard and in the basement. The photos do not do the house justice. Every room is a work of art - from the decorating to the beautiful stone work in the bathrooms. The reason I rated it as 'good' and not 'excellent' is that the beach access is not an easy task, especially if you have kids or seniors. There are 225 steep steps down the bluff to the beach. The stairs are sound and there are landings, however, it is quite a journey. We had several fit adults that found the trip daunting. We also found that the 5th bedroom in the basement is sparse and has 2 uncomfortable futons without linens. Not really a room I would put adults or even teens in. We also thought that for the price of the rental, there were barely enough bath towels for all the guests (8 adults/3 kids). The information provided on the bedrooms needs to be updated. We were short on beds with the 11 people we had in the house, not sure where 14 people could possibly sleep in that house. The jacuzzi was lots of fun and clean and, again, afforded one of the best views we've ever had on Lake Michigan. Owners should revise description of home so that folks can plan accordingly. The home has lots of great qualities, but the misleading information is a bit of a let-down.
