Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I were looking for a weekend getaway, and this house was perfect. The pictures do not do the place justice on how great it really is. It was clean without being fancy. The house has a lot of old fashioned charm, the private beach is beautiful, and is so close to town if you're looking to get out for a night on the town in Saugatuck (there's even a $15/ride shuttle service in the area!). We only left the house 1 of 4 nights because we enjoyed the beach and the rest of what the house had to offer so much. There's a ton of weird, old books that we all couldn't stop reading. It's great for a larger group, and easily accommodated a large group of girls without having to sleep on couches, air mattresses, etc. I've been to other vacation homes that were barebones beds, sheets and furniture. We packed like we were going to Mars, but this house was a real home that had anything kitchen/linen wise you could need.

This was my first use of this home away/VRBO website, and was skeptical that we were not booking through the website at first. However, the owner was very easy to work with, and the woman who was the caretaker of the house was very responsive to a few minor issues we had over the weekend (empty propane tank and plumbing issue/shower leak which you could expect with any older house), and ensured they were fixed promptly. There were a lot of smiles on my friends faces all weekend.

Lake Michigan Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was a perfect house for a long weekend get a way. The house is clean and spacious for the group we had 6 adults and 2 teenagers. The beach is very private and relaxing for sunbathing watching boats or the beautiful sunsets. Would recommend this rental to friends and family, would also stay again.

A Placeto Create Memories

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Green House this summer. The location is ideal for daily trips to the beach (morning, noon and night) as well as a quick trip (or bike ride for some) to downtown Saugatuck. The steps to the beach were easily managed by young and old. The Green House really answered all of our "needs"-- a place for all to gather as a group and a place for each family (we had 3) to be on their own. We cannot wait to return.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation at the lake house. The cottage was spacious and beautifully appointed. The beach was gorgeous, private and quiet. The sunsets were awesome! We felt very welcome and relaxed without the burden of so many rules and regulations required by the local real estate agents with whom we dealt in the past. This has been a very pleasant experience. Looking forward to our next visit.

Spacious Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

The Green House was the perfect place for our recent vacation. We were four adults and two children and we had more space than we really needed. The home was well stocked with linens, towels and kitchen supplies. The cooktop and oven, though old, worked very efficiently. It was great having extra refrigerators to keep beverages cold. I had trouble with the dishwasher, but my daughter quickly figured out how to make it work. The children were thrilled with the toys, books and especially the pool table. The steps to the beach were a little hard to maneuver, but it was well worth the effort. The private beach was a perfect size for sunbathing as well as playing in the sand. The weather was not entirely cooperative and as a result the beach seemed different each day. The people were friendly as we walked up and down the shoreline. The location, on a heavily wooded road, was great. It was secluded but not isolated. The location in general was perfect for us. Barely a mile down the road was a park/playground for when the temperature wasn't conducive to being on the beach. With only short drives we were able to visit, eat, and shop in South Haven, Saugatuck, Douglas, and Holland. I highly recommend the farmers' market, Kilwin's candy shop and Windmill Restaurant all in in Holland. Fennville itself is a tiny town with a great farm stand fairly close to the house. We did trek all the way to Grand Haven to see the lighthouse, which we found to be pretty disappointing. The property manager was helpful and friendly. She was quick to return phone messages and even checked in with us the day we arrived. I would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative.
