Villa Monte

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Villa Monte! Very clean and well stocked with all of the essentials. When we arrived, our daughters went to use the pool at the Lodge but the pool pass hadn't been renewed. However I contacted the property manager and she had a new one to us within the half hour! There is a nice view of the ski hill, but not quite within walking distance if you have your ski gear to haul. Fortunately our daughters are 16 and older so it wasn't an issue for us. They were able to drive themselves to the hill when they wanted to hit the slopes, but if you have younger children you may want to opt for something a little closer. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely rent this condo again!!

Very nice stay for a very reasonable price

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in this unit was very good. It was a clean and nice unit to stay in. It had all of the essentials, and with 2 bdrm and 2 bthrms, it was just right for a family of four. It also overlooks the Schuss slopes and village area. Thus, it is in a great location for skiiing, and pools in the winter. I would imagine its also nicely located for golf in the summer, but we were there in the winter.

Additionally, this was our first time renting through HomeAway, and working with this property management company. The manager, Jane Griffin, was outstanding to work with. She was attentive and responsive to all of my initial questions and concerns as someone that was new to renting a place through the Home Away website.

The rental process went very smoothly! We would rent this unit again in the future for this price, and would look to rent through this rental management company in the future as well. The closest thing to a critique, and we knew this going in, was there is not any internet service in this unit. For our family, that was a big deal, but again, we knew that before renting. It does have cable T.V., so for many people, I am sure that is enough.

For the price and location, you cannot go wrong with this rental unit. Enjoy your stay!

Great Condo For Family Ski Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The manager, Jane, was very helpful and accommodating.

It is close to Schuss, but we chose to drive instead of walk down the main entrance to the slopes.

Full size fridge and kitchenette were perfect for our quick meals before heading out.

The mattresses were on the hard side for our families comfort, but this condo is EXTREEMLY clean and would recommend to others to stay in.

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

We spent our winter holidays in this rental unit. The unit has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room and a small balcony which is excellent for the summer time. It needs a little update but everything works great. We enjoyed our ski vacation and will be back again next season. A few small recommendations to improve the quality of the rental unit:

- a larger(bigger) tv above the fireplace in the living room,

- wireless in the unit,

- two full size beds instead of twins in the second bedroom. Twins are good for kids. I had problems slipping in one of those beds.

- the unit's owner should provide an ax for wood splitting. Using paper or fire starters doesn't do the job if you want to start the fire in the fireplace, the logs are two big.

As usual, Jane, the manager, was excellent in helping us from the beginning to the end of our vacation.

Thank you.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this roomy condo! Loved that there was a full size refrigerator and kitchen! Our family fully enjoyed the back patio and the close proximity of the condo pool. This is our 2nd time staying at this resort in the summer! It is a perfect location to visit all the northern MI beaches and sites!
