About Dotsie Poli

Welcome to our home! We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do. Each season has its own wonderful memories from walking on the beach with the lake frozen over, swimming in the lake, wine tasting, apple picking and the haunted corn maze. With many repeat renters we feel as though our family home has become a second home to many other families. Peter and Dotsie Poli

Girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home for our girlfriend get-away! The home is beautiful, Dotsie is a great host. The few small minor issues we had were promptly addressed and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The location is private enough and close to everything! Sunset and beach are breathtaking. Lovely weekend and the home made is so very relaxing and enjoyable for our large group of 10 women!

Still my favorite VRBO ever

  • 5 of 5

I planned a cousins reunion in October 2015 and when I left, I just knew I had to share my experience with others. Last week five good friends joined me and were instantly in love with the stunning views, the warm vibrant colors, the inviting cozy bedrooms and all the various spaces to hang out on three floors overlooking Lake Michigan. Lots of gorgeous landscaping has been added on the path to the lake. We were on the go every day - Art Prize in Grand Rapids, exploring and shopping in Douglas, Saugatuck and Holland. We enjoyed our wine around the fireplace every night watching the sunset. This is the best house I have ever stayed in! My friends already have a date penciled in for a return trip next October.

So relaxing and beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at this home. It's on the beach and has beautiful views from all the windows and decks. The house is decorated beautifully and is very clean. The owners are very nice people and we hope to rent again next year!

You can see the storms roll in and unbelievable sunsets that are breath taking.

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us arrived on a crisp fall day and immediately ran through the house choosing our bedrooms. It was our biannual cousins' reunion and I was anxious that the house would please everybody. It turns out that this house will be a very hard act to follow. The decorating is really terrific; they have collected a lot of special pieces that add to each room's decor. There are lots of lamps and end tables, so plenty of places to curl up and visit or read a book. It is a bright and cheerful house and all the rooms look out on Lake Michigan; we were treated to lots of surf and some bright orange red sunsets. We went to see Art Prize in Grand Rapids, shopped in Holland and Saugatuck, bicycled in Douglas, hiked the dunes and watched golf and football in the upstairs and downstairs living rooms. Oh, I forgot to mention the magnificent decks where we gathered whenever the wind died down. I am looking for an excuse to go back!
