Awesome Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful weekend get away with several great friends. The place was clean, spacious and perfect location for us to enjoy the Wine Trail and the down town area of New Buffalo. We only wish the weather would have cooperated with us just a tiny bit. Everything seems to be working fine. I plan on making this an annual trip with the crew. Thank you! It was just what we needed.

Super Bowl 50

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 6 adults thoroughly enjoyed our annual Super Bowl get together at Beach Bum II. The home is clean and comfortable and perfect for entertaining with the open concept layout. We were confused by the pictures. Although the text is accurate (3 bedrms.), the pictures show the master twice. No biggie. The floors are beautiful. The only upgrade we could suggest was a big screen TV because, of course, we wanted to see every detail of the big game. The owner was very pleasant and made planning the getaway seamless. We would definitely return. (Some day to see the Chicago Bears play???)

We had a great experience! The house is as described and spacious for all of us during our girl's getaway. Robert assisted us with the rental, and he is extremely attentive and timely with information. We enjoyed New Buffalo. Shopping, dining, and nearby casinos and wineries. The property is a short walk to the beach where you can catch the sunset. During our stay, the waters were elevated so we could not make use of the beach. We enjoyed the back yard and elevated patio.....our entire stay was wonderful.

We were happy with almost everything

  • 4 of 5

Except for the few things we already discussed with you everything else was fine. The only thing we wished was that one of the toilets was higher. My wife and I are in our 60's and I have bad knees. The low toilets made it a little difficult at times. Other then that it was great actually we are thinking of returning there next year. The listing was pretty accurate and the household items were sufficient. We had a great time as a family.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for 3 days when my son got married. It was a great place. The back yard and deck would have been fantastic if the weather had cooperated. Plenty of room, the sundeck was a great advantage. The place didn't have any odors and was perfect because my family has allergies. The bushes have grown since this picture was taken - but other than than the inside is as described. Nice town to visit, people very friendly and this neighborhood was nice and quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

Review of Beach Bum II

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls getaway at the Beach Bum II. The house was clean and exactly as the many photos illustrate. It was about a 3-4 block walk to a secondary entrance to the private beach as the stairs for the main beach entrance were not in yet from the winter. Obviously something that the owners could not control and it really wasn't much further anyway. The beach was private and clean and exactly what we were looking for. I have already recommended this place to family and hope to make this the destination for an annual girls trip.
