Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms with Queen Beds, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sofa Bed in Living Room, Sleeps 5

Great location in Douglas with views of the water and Saugatuck, MI. This property is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Douglas and just a couple minutes drive to Saugatuck across the river. Several past renters have also walked to Saugatuck from our place. Oval beach just a couple miles away. We have the best pool in the area and it's heated!

About John Reinke

We currently reside in Cascade, MI on the Thornapple River. We enjoy traveling and usually have two or three trips planned at any given point. There is no time like the present, correct? You only live once, so make the most of it.

John Reinke purchased this condo in 2012

Why John Reinke chose Michigan

We love the Douglas/Saugatuck area. There are many great places to eat and the art galleries are wonderful. Lake Michigan is a mile away and the beaches are the best in the state. We will eventually sell our home in Cascade and move to Douglas for the summers.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is very well built and the view from our living room and master bedroom is great. We overlook the water and can see downtown Saugatuck from our place. We have fantastic neighbors!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just got back from a wonderful, relaxing weekend. This condo is very immaculate and fully-stocked with everything you need. The beds are phenomenal! I could have stayed in bed all day, but then I wouldn't have been able to shop the great shops in downtown Saugatuck and Douglas! The weather was a bit rainy at times, but then the sun came out and it was perfect! I highly recommend this condo for it's location, space, and beauty. You are literally a hop, skip, and a jump away from both downtown Saugatuck and Douglas, with great views of Saugatuck from your living room window. These are quaint towns with people out and about shopping, dining, walking the marina and taking the sights in. I've stayed here three times so far and I will certainly be going back!

Summer in Douglas

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful condo right in the middle of Douglas. The unit was clean and had all we needed. It was great to sit on the balcony and look at the water across the street.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had a fabulous time and felt so comfortable staying at the condo. The complex was quiet and we had the beautiful pool basically to ourselves. Loved getting up every day to see the view of Lake Kalamazoo out the balcony doors. The condo was clean and so well-stocked...we didn't have to spend a lot on incidentals as is usually the case. And the beds are the best we've ever slept in! The proximity to Saugatuck and all of its restaurants, shops & activities was so close yet Douglas is a bit slower paced which we liked. John was always quick to answer any questions or make recommendations. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Very happy that you enjoyed Saugatuck and Douglas...and our condo! It's a great place to escape to and the comments we get about the beds all the time are great. We like the beds too! Looking forward to having you back in the future! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Thanks again, John

Perfect location and property. Loved it

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect with beautiful decor and a well-stocked kitchen. John and George could not have been more accommodating. We loved the swimming pool with lushous landscaping. The location is perfect for a walk to downtown Douglas and the great restaurants and shops. Plus, in Douglas, you avoid the crowds of Saugatuck. We will be back. We would recommend this property to anyone who needs a two bedroom condo.
