Do Not Be Fooled! Pictures and description totally deceiving! So Disappointing.....Overpriced

  • 2 of 5

We rented for family celebration of my 70th birthday, 6 adults, 4 children, 2 of which were babies.....the beach was important because we had had many vacations in the area when our kids were growing up and fond memories of day and night activities on the beach. "Private beach steps from the house accessed by a beautiful winding trail staircase". FALSE what it doesn't say or show in picture is that there is then a long trail to get to a staircase that is 65 STEPS down...then at least 100 feet along a narrow dune to get to beach, then you must climb back UP those 65 STEPS, impossible. There is no deck or patio, just a small flagstone area with a circle of 6 Adirondack chairs, HOWEVER....important..20 feet away is a drop with a sign: "KEEP OFF! DANGEROUS BLUFF". Impossible situation with 2 boys, 6 and 4. My daughter and I had to clean the upstairs' bathrooms, the downstairs bathroom was more for an after beach rinse, all children had to be bathed upstairs. The downstairs area could be used for sleeping only, freezing cold, DVD player no working TV, very damp and moldy. Would not recommend....not suitable for multigenerational families. I have used VRBO for my last 5 vacations and have only had LUXURY accommodations,(Scottsdale, Palm coast Florida, Reynolds plantation Georgia) never paying higher than $4,000 not over $6,000! Husband reminded me to mention that none of the outside lights worked, a serious safety issue.

Owner's Response: Let me first express regret for the renters that stayed at this home. I wish any of these concerns were expressed to me during their stay as we could possibly remedy any issues. The beach is wonderful but like most Lake Michigan beaches you do have to walk to get to them. The stair case is NOT 65 steps, she is talking 65 walking steps to get to stair case. The beach access in comparison to most of my lakefront homes is not that hard an access. I am sorry they had issue. This home has over 300 feet of private beach but like most beach homes in our area it is on a bluff. This is why we have the caution sign overlooking lake. We cannot change mother nature's work. The outdoor lights DO work but they are on a timer to go off at sunset. The upstairs tv is cable ready and the downstairs tv only plays DVDS. Since we never advertised two tvs in home this not an issue. Our cleanliness is something we take great pride in and again renters never said anything to me as I asked how they were enjoying their stay.

Beautiful private beach steps from the house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights with group of 6 adults and 3 children. The house was perfectly comfortable for our size group and had plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The kitchen has been recently updated with new finishes and appliances and the rest of the house is very comfortably furnished and obviously well cared for. The house had everything we needed; once we arrived we didn't leave! The best part is the private is accessed by a beautiful private winding trail/staircase directly on the property. The house sits on a wooded bluff overlooking the beach and the views from both inside the house and on the property are fantastic. The beach here is very quiet and peaceful because it's surrounded by trees rather than lined with houses like some of the other beaches in Harbor Country. Jason the property manager was very attentive and answered all of our questions promptly. We had the most wonderful long weekend and are already planning our trip back to this house next year! I highly, highly recommend staying here.
