About Alex D.

We live in in Chicago, and have been going to Saugatuck each summer for the past several years, really enjoy what Saugatuck can offer year-around. We are a family of four, with two kids. Our parents like to come along and also we like to spend time with other families.

Why Alex D. chose Michigan

One of the main questions we had was if we wanted to be in town or on the beach. When we came to Saugatuck, we found that we would go to the beach 4-5 times a week, but we would come into town multiple times a day, so the decision was easy. The property is in a great location - quiet neighborhood yet a short walk to town. Also we wanted a place that could fit two families, with multiple kids each, plus one or two sets of parents, or a nanny.

What makes this house unique

The 4,500 SF house accommodates several groups and allows privacy as well as shared space. It is much newer than the vast majority of homes available in Saugatuck; and it is configured with 4 desks and premium internet service for those folks that can't stay unplugged from work for too long.

The property was AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house inside and out. It was beautiful and had plenty of space and all the things we needed to make our stay enjoyable. I would absolutely rent this house again and recommend to anyone staying in the Saugatuck area.

Wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Caretaker is nearby and was prompt to help me start the fireplace (pilot was out). We will return next year for another family reunion.

Easter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay with a large group of people. Perfect location for a quick walk downtown to visit all the cute stores the town has to offer.

We traveled with children and it was an added bonus that they had kids' games and equipment (highchair, pack n play, and strollers).

All the rooms were as stated and very comfortable. My favorite "room" was the screened in patio.

Owners responded quickly and promptly to questions.

We are already talking about our return visit back!

Beautiful but oh so cozy. Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

I think this was the nicest house we have ever rented. Not only is it beautiful, it is the most well-equipped house we have seen. There is anything and everything you could possibly want to cook a huge meal in the beautiful kitchen. The kitchen equipment is all top-notch and easy to find in the labeled drawers and cabinets. There were more than enough plates, bowls, glasses, wine glasses, towels, extra blankets and pillows - everything we needed to serve our large group.

The house is beautiful inside and out, while also being cozy and very comfortable. Everyone in our group was so impressed, and everyone had a wonderful weekend. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful property!

Perfect location and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This home was an excellent choice for our 7 person leadership team to host our business retreat. The accommodations were spotless and everything was easy to find and use. We enjoyed having the dining room, living room(s), and porches to relax and have some great discussions. Alex was easy to work with and was very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our stay. The proximity to the downtown shops and eateries allowed us to easily walk to and from town for dinner each night. The large televisions allowed us to view our presentations via the hdmi connection on our laptops. The kitchen contained everything we needed to supply breakfast and lunch each day. We will definitely consider coming back here next year for our retreat. Thanks! -- Bob Schneider
