Reviewer Comments:

The location was most excellent! The house was well laid out and very comfortable. We throughly enjoyed the beauty of the beach. Biggest issues: 1. The kitchen was consumed with what were either knats or fruit flies. we placed ALL of our food in the regrigerator and spent a 45 minutes trying to vacuum them away only for them to return. This is NOT in any way an exaggeration. Having this situation occuring in the kitchen was a HUGE dissapointment and the thought of preparing food was completely undesirable! One thing we noticed was that the back door screen was not attached on the bottom & right side of the screen door therefore we kept the regular door closed after the 1st day. The owner & management company need to address this issue. 2. In the middle of grilling our steaks on the gas grill the gas ran out. We did not locate a spare tank and saw in the instructions there was not one and we were expected to drive into North Port and fill it. Seriously?! That is unacceptable. All other VRBOs we have rented have had spare tanks for their paying guests. For the cost of $280/night this is inexcusable. In conclusion I will just state that these 2 issues while only 2 in number would be a deal breaker for guests. For us we would like to know they have been addressed and resolved and then we would definately be returning guests. I also would add that I am not interesting in posting this to the VRBO website because that would be a big negative for the owners. I would rather know that it was important enough for your company to resolve.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We battle fruit flies this time of the year and there is no way for us to control them. You cannot spray pesticides, you cannot simply stop them. This area is a heavy agriculture area with fruit orchards, vineyards and hop farms. This is the time of the year for harvesting and with it comes fruit flies. We do leave notes on how to limit the. Keeping items refrigerated, wiping counter tops, having a fan on to blow them away. Fruit flies last for 5-6 weeks in early fall and then they are gone. We are very sorry you had to experience them. As far as propane supplying goes, it is correct we do not supply. Typically other rentals offer for a fee. We have looked at ways to offer this but have found no cost effective way to do so at this time. Our company does offer other items free of charge that others do not offer or charges for, such as spa towels, soap and paper products, wifi and such. We do want to offer you a great vacation and will work hard at improving what we can.

Reviewer Comments:

Beautiful view of the water from large, many windowed living /dining area. This saved the day since it was rainy and low 40's all week-end. Fortunately, watching the waters of the Great Lakes is an awe inspiring experience in any weather. Thank you so much for allowing dogs! All 3 were content in the large living area and had fun running down the shore when we ventured out into the cold. The location feels pleasantly remote from city life, yet is close to a few small towns (we stopped in Leland, Sutton's Bay and Northport) with interesting shops, restaurants and winery's. Travis City is about 30 minutes away (you drive through it coming and going) and offers many opportunities for vacation fun. The Sleeping Bear Dunes are not that much farther and are a must see if you have the time to be amazed. Only two negatives were the price (it is expensive) and the small fruit fly like insects that can fit through screens. They don't bite or land on you but you can see them flitting around the kitchen. Still, it's a beautiful place and we would like to go there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry about the fruit flies. We do not like them either. They are the annoying fruit harvest guest that we have to tolerate every year. It sounds like you had a good time regardless. Thanks again.

A week of glorious sunsets, beautiful walks along the beach and shared memories. This was a truly magnificent vacation with very adequate accommodations. We would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a most relaxing vacation! I would recommend bringing a vacuum as the beach does seem to travel with you :)

Owner's Response: Christmas Cove is indeed a stunning location. We are happy that you had a great time. Oh that seem to chase that away constantly, but it keeps coming back. We will look at supplying a vacuum for the rental.

View was stunning! However, home needed a thorough, deep cleaning. Ants in kitchen and tap water had strong odor. Home was well stocked with supplies!

Reviewer Comments:

A group of my friends and myself spent a weekend at this property and it was absolutely beautiful. The view of Lake Michigan from the deck was breath taking and the beach was easily accessible. It easily accommodated 6 people. It was extremely well stocked with plates, glasses, cookeware, etc. They also had a very nice grill and firewood for bonfires. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend on Lake Michigan.
