Great vacation home in a fabulous town
We spent a lovely two weeks in this great vacation rental during August 2013. The house was fabulous, providing comfortable accommodation for a family of five (children aged 3 to 8) plus two grandparents.
Perfect location, providing easy access to the town and beach. The neighbourhood is very friendly and the neighbours were welcoming. We would love to visit again.
On a final note, Val and Paul were very helpful, providing us with reassurance and references when we booked - very helpful especially as we were traveling from the UK and had not used VRBO before.
My family so enjoyed this home! We could walk to downtown and down to the beach. It is a very well kept home in a very nice neighborhood. We enjoyed the front porch and the back deck with barbecue and fire pit in the yard with plenty of seating. It is a very well decorated and comfortable home. We made wonderful family memories there! We are hoping to return next year!
Great house in a great area for kids and adults alike.
This was our first visit to the Elk Rapids area. We have 4 kids (2 year old twin girls, 14 and 16 year old boys). I wanted to find an area where there was something for everyone.
The house is a 3 minute bike ride to a beautiful beach that had a great playground. The girls were able to swim as it had a gentle approach to deeper water. It was also not crowded, even on the weekend.
Our boys enjoyed the beach also and were able to safely ride their bikes. I was also able to take the boys fishing by the dam and marina.
For a little variety we drove to Traverse City and to Sleeping Bear Dunes. All less than an hour away.
The house itself was beautiful and very comfortable. You can tell the owners have taken a lot of pride in it's appearance. Everything was very nice. The kitchen was well stocked so you could make breakfast and we appreciated the outdoor grill. The bedrooms were well kept and very clean as were the bathrooms.
The backyard was great and our 2 year olds could run around safely. The tether ball was a big hit. The neighbors were all very friendly.
There was a smaller well stocked grocery store a mile away.
If you go you must try the pizza at The Moose restaurant and also dinner at Pearls New Orlean's Kitchen.
I can't imagine a better place for a relaxing family vacation in Northern Michigan.
Very nice property, well kept and clean.
My family, eight of us, really enjoyed our stay. Great backyard with fire pit made for enjoyable evenings. Enjoyed our walks to town, beautiful neighborhood. Two minor issues: the south facing upstairs bedroom was a little warm and could probably use a window a/c unit' the other issue was no upstairs bathroom which was a minor inconveniance during the night for bathroom trips. Overall we all loved the home, nice spacious kitchen/dining room which made for wonderful group events.
Great house and owners were great to work with!
Perfect in every way!
Great location. Plenty of space for our family reunion. We hope to be back again next year and every year if possible! Val is wonderful to deal with and the house and grounds are very well kept. Live flowers in a vase on the dining table was a beautiful surprise!
