This One Was The Tops!

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented properties in both the United States and Europe and this house -- and our host -- was the best we've experienced. It was perfect for our group of 13 - grandparents and two families with seven children. There was ample space to spread out and no battles over who would sleep where. The "bunkroom" with two sets of bunk beds and a large queen was perfect. We've never rented a home/apartment that had nearly every pot, pan and utensil we needed ... but this one did. All we had to purchase was a pot big enough to hold 14 ears of corn. We left it for the next occupants. The beach near the house is on the small side and Lake Michigan was sort of rough during our week, but the beaches at South Haven and Saugatuck were just a short drive and the kids loved them. There's also an isolated beach at the Saugatuck State Park that really was nice and worth the half-mile hike to it. Even though the kids couldn't run out the back door and jump in a lake, there was a really great hot tub that I think they enjoyed more than the beach. Our host was always accessible by phone or internet and was a pleasure to deal with. If our three families decide Lake Michigan is on the agenda in 2017, we'll make an early reservation because this one books up quickly.

Amazing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a family get-together! This house has everything; room for 8 adults and 2 kids to spread out and have their own space and yet the house encourages people to settle down together and hangout; tons of kitchen space and an open floor plan so that cooking doesn't get in the way of socializing; a fabulous deck which turned out to be our families favorite place to be; a big back yard with a fireplace perfect for badminton in the day and smore's cooking at night; and a huge basement with air-hockey and foozeball just in case it rains. Perhaps best of all was that fact that while the house itself was ' in the country" it was easy to get to everywhere. We did day-trips to South Haven, Sugatuck, Grand Haven, and Muskegan and had absolutely zero issues. And to top it all off the owners were wonderful. They responded quickly to all emails, provided great suggestions for what to do and where to eat, and were extremely understanding when an issue arose in the middle of our time there. It truly is the perfect vacation spot. We'll be coming back again soon!!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in your home! The beaches in South Haven were beautiful and there was great parking right by the beach. The kids museum in St. Joe's was great on a rainy day and there was a great park very close to South Beach in South Haven. All the rooms were very spacious and there was enough room for everyone to spread out during the week. Overall it was a great week!!!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with open layout, close to private beach. Very comfortable, functional, close to both South Haven and Saugatuck. My parents and siblings and our kids rent a house every summer and we were really happy with this house. Big dining table with adjacent kitchen island fit everybody nicely, large family room with French doors opening to big deck and fire pit in backyard, air hockey and foozball in basement, etc. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful new construction home. My group consisted of 4 families gathering for our annual summer vacation. Highlights of this property include: modern kitchen appliances, large kitchen table to accommodate a large group of people, very comfortable beds, screened in porch, hot tub, large yard, and walking distance to private association beach on Lake Michigan. We also liked the location in a gated community so our children could right their bicycles in a safe area. The owners were always very prompt with all communication about the property. We loved this place so much that we've already booked our vacation for next year!
