Beach Bum II

  • 2 of 5

The location of the house is nice, and it is spacious - although it is obvious that it is a lower quality rental property, used primarily for groups of younger people. This was seen in the bleached/stained bathroom towels, cheap kitchenware, covered old couches, etc. There were few amenities in the house - only a few rolls of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels, in a house that claims it can hold 10+ people. We ended up having to go out and purchase things for the house. When these issues were brought up to the property manager after the stay, he was defensive and refused to make the situation right in any way. I would not stay here again, work with this management company, or recommend the house to anyone else.

Owner's Response: It became evident from the moment the booking process started that this guest was going to be a handful. Attempting to get payment from the guest was the first sign things were not going to go well. At no time during their stay was management contacted on any of the issues mentioned, normally when you check in to any hotel or home, if there are issues that need to be addressed you contact mgmt. - right away (as we are available 24/7). After discussing issues with the guest that she brought up, I had asked if there were any pictures taken of the bleached & stained towels, or dirty oven and utensils, there were none. The property was inspected the same day after guests had left and it was in disarray and housekeeping was also disenfranchised with the condition the house was left in. It was also conveyed to the guest that left this review that if there were only 2 rolls of toilet tissue she could have called, as those items are in storage in garage but she would have none of that, all she was interested in was getting her money back, that she was slow to pay on. It became evident that this guest was just looking for a 'freebie' and that would not happen. I would recommend to all property owners and guests to due your due diligence when renting. This property as well as all our other homes shy away from larger immature groups as this one was. I will let my other reviews speak for themselves.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rented Beach Bum II for a girls weekend and it was perfect. Plenty of room for the 10 of us. House is clean, spacious and has everything you need. Great location. Owner kept in great contact with me throughout booking. Hope to be back!

Very nice, well maintained home

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 plus 1 stayed here and we were very happy with the accommodations and amenities. We were very comfortable, the home was clean, and the location was great. The private beach was very small but I did not expect much. It is extremely rocky getting to the water so I would highly recommend water shoes to navigate the rocks. The public beach is primarily where we hung out and it was very close, although we did drive and park. The parking pass was nice to have as there is a $10 fee to park, which we did not have to pay. Robert, the owner, was very easy to work with. Upon our arrival home, I received a message from the owner saying the cleaning lady found a wallet, which happened to belong to us. I was pleased that he has someone honest working for him, and that he was willing to mail it back to us. This was a great getaway place for our family. I would return; however, the only other amenity I would have liked is a hot tub outside:)

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???)

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

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.
