Terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at the Daisy, and it was lovely! Extremely clean, well equipped kitchen, very quiet and private. Loved the screened porch, a great place to spend a rainy afternoon! One of the best features is its location - a block away from Lake Michigan and minutes away from shopping areas and restaurants in Douglas and Saugatuck. Leslie has done a beautiful job decorating and maintaining this home and provided a bottle of wine to help celebrate our anniversary. Thanks for a beautiful getaway!

The Daisy is beautiful and close to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The Daisy has been completely remodeled with beautiful kitchen, rooms, furniture and screened porch. The floor plan is perfect for gathering at the large dining table or sitting by the fireplace. The private back yard has a patio, eating area, hot tub and porch swing. Lake Michigan is just a block away, with the boardwalk steps down to Douglas Beach another short walk away. Our time there was relaxing and carefree. I highly recommend The Daisy.

What a Find!

  • 5 of 5

Came up from a sizzling summer in Florida. Expected cooler weather and a nice retreat, but got so much more. The house was perfect! Very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend it. Spent a great deal of time in the screened room relaxing after checking out the area and beaches in Douglas and Saugatuk. Had my Sister and brother in law down from Houghton Lake for a couple of nights and my brother and sister in law from Saint Clair Shores for sometime. The house was very comfortable with everything you would need. We ate out lunch while visiting shops on main street, took a cruise on the steamer in Saugatuk, watch the sunsets over Lake Michigan. It was perfect. Thanks for the list of restaurants Leslie. We tried a lot of them. Can't wait to come back with my husband. He'll love it as much as I did.

Great stay two years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for a week the last two years and were were very happy with the property. The house is cute and has everything you need and the beach is just a short walk away. It was also wonderful that we were provided with a pack and play, high chair and changing table. We hope to make our stay here an annual vacation!

Very attractive homesn convenient location

  • 4 of 5

I had very little need to interact with Leslie regarding this rental, which is a testament to how well organized the property is. The home is very well located near the lake and Douglas public beach. The two bedrooms are relatively small but perfectly fine; the fact that there are two separate bathrooms more than makes up for the small size of the bedrooms. The home is nicely furnished and well equipped with modern appliances that are in nice condition. So, overall, our stay was very positive. We do have a few other minor observations that are intended to help Leslie make the home even nicer or to reflect our personal preferences and things that related to the area rather than the house:

1. The back porch furniture had not been vacuumed upon our arrival.

2. The TV had only the most basic commercial stations available; given the cost of the rental, I think full(er) cable access is appropriate

3. In this area of Douglas, beach access is almost all private only. The Douglas public beach is very close by (5 minute walk) but is small and not in particularly good condition. There are signs indicating where the the public beach ends and the private beach begins, so public beach goers are crammed in to a small area.

4. The washing machine was a little dirty; had to remove some mold

5. There are only a very limited number of good restaurants in the Saugatuck / Douglas area, especially for vegetarians. The Saugatuck Brewery should be avoided at all costs; White Dog very good for pizza.

6. This is a great location for biking as there are many perfect country roads practically outside the front door.

Again, overall this is a very nice home and it was a real pleasure to stay in it. Our issues above are primarily with the area. But Leslie's home is really very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the Daisy. Although it is not mold in the washing machine, sometimes there is some gooey stuff left on the seal of the door if it has been left closed between washings. The porch furniture and rug should be vacuumed between rentals. I will review these issues with the cleaning staff. We offer very many cable stations although, it's true, we do not offer the premium stations. We will look at this issue for the future. Again, thank you for your review and I hope you will return for an even better experience on your next visit to Douglas/Saugatuck. Leslie
