About owner/property manager

This is our favorite place ever, and don't be surprised if it becomes your favorite, too! Our family has lived all over the country but are settled nearby. As an extended family, we own two houses in Island Pointe Marina.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2015

Why owner/property manager chose Southwest Michigan

We "found" St. Joseph a few years ago after living in the South Bend area for a number of years (it took a while to find this gem of a place!). Why this town -- small-town feel and plenty to do, only 90 minutes from Chicago, with the prettiest water and softest beaches we've ever encountered in a moderate-temperature climate.

What makes this house unique

This is a beautiful, light-filled house with gorgeous views and a huge deck... what's not to love?

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the week in preparation for our sons' wedding and had a wonderful experience. The rental was very clean, everything worked and had ample accommodations for our large group (10 adults). Extra parking, clubhouse, swimming pool and playground were close to the rental. My only recommendation is a later checkout (10:00am is a little early). This was the first time I vacationed in St. Joseph. Loved the ambience of the town, the beach was clean, and everyone had a great time. Would definitely go back!

Great place in St. Joseph, MI

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Very serene and beautiful. Short drive to Silver Beach and short walk to the pool. Very nice property!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the natural beauty of our location on the water--mornings are especially serene for sunrise watching on the back deck, aren't they? I'm also happy to hear you enjoyed the pool and our place. We tend to walk to the beach, so it's good to hear you found the drive (and, presumably, the free parking) hassle-free. Hope to have you back soon! Thanks for your review.

Great community, responsive and accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and Lori made sure we had two smaller items we had specifically asked about prior to our arrival. One small issue with garage door was fixed the next day even after we had said it wasn't necessary to remedy immediately. Loved the clean, well-maintained community pool being so close! We also got a lot of use out of the playground and grassy area for kids to run around/fly kites!

Owner's Response: How nice to hear you made good use of the kite-flying breezes! I'm happy that you enjoyed an idyllic vacation and our place. St. Joseph is indeed very special, it's great to share it with everyone! Thanks for the review.

Nice home Right on the St. Joseph River

  • 4 of 5

The home we rented was very nice. Good location right on the St. Joseph River. Very quiet, and close to the community pool and all St. Joseph attractions. The only negative was that the only access to the upstairs bathroom by the 2nd and 3rd upstairs bedrooms was through the upstairs master bedroom. This was very awkward for our guests.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and it's great to hear you enjoyed your stay! We have enjoyed preserving the loft style of our home to keep the vacation feel and stellar water views as in the pictures on this site. Guests have enjoyed the layout--this is the first comment we've received that indicated otherwise--but if modifications are needed to the house, we'll be happy to look into that. We strive to make our guests as completely pleased with the place as we are!
