Why Natalie Smith chose Southwest Michigan

We fell in love with MI the first time that we visited the area. We love it for many reasons, but feel that when we come, we 'get away from it all' and can relax with the beach, ambiance and fun things to do in the area. One of our highlights was picking apples on a sunny October day at Big Dan's U Pick Em.

What makes this condo unique

Off season is our favorite time to visit, to walk the beach and visit all the local restaurants. To have a restaurant here, you have to be good to survive. Please ask for our list of favorite attractions!

Amazing view, private beach, and great owner

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for our family with 4 young kids. We had actually stayed at this property before in a different unit and that's how we met Natalie. She's the best VRBO owner I've worked with in terms of friendliness, proactive communications, and timely responses. This unit has a full view of the lake and it's a great place to grill and watch sunsets, or gaze out at the lake while drinking coffee in the mornings.

It's a bit of a steep walk down to the beach, but that's just the deal with that part of Michigan. The good news is the path is paved and Natalie provides a handy wagon that we used to haul everything down to the beach. We were able to push a stroller down there and back with no problem, but it might be an issue for anyone with limited mobility. The beach is amazing and there was hardly anyone else there.

The unit itself is neat and clean with a well stocked kitchen and wifi that worked great.

Beautiful sunsets, family friendly.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 had a terrific stay. Swimming in the lake from the private beach or in the pool was wonderful. Beautiful sunsets, each unique. Gorgeous view either from the deck or from the bluff twenty yards away. Plenty of room for the little time we spent indoors. Kitchen was very well stocked with plates, cups, bowls, etc. Add to all this, wineries within a short drive --- especially Karma Vista. We spent the evening of the fourth watching fireworks go off up and down the shoreline. It doesn't get much better than that.

Great communication from the owner.

My entire family absolutely recommends this property.

Great Places for a Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental with tons of space- both inside and out. We had a full house and still had plenty of room for all 10 girls to hang out, get ready, etc. The beach is amazing and beyond peaceful- wish we had better weather . The patio was great for dinner and coffee in the am. We couldn't of had a better time. The owner was amazing to work with

Fantastic Girls Weekend on Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I wanted to get out of the city and enjoy a relaxing weekend at the beach and did this property deliver! It was exactly as pictured/described and immaculate when we arrived - the AC was even turned on for us so we didn't sweat to death getting settled. Beautiful views, quiet neighbors and a beach just down the (steep) path - we couldn't have asked for more. The owner was responsive, great to work with and helpful with local recommendations. I absolutely recommend this property.

OVERALL

This was a fabulous rental and we had a great time. We will definitely go back again and have recommended it to friends.

OWNER

She was very helpful and worked with me to make sure everything went well and answered all the questions, before during and after the rental. She was very responsive. Most of the communication was done over email, but she also made sure to call me when needed.

LOCATION

The location was fantastic. The view of lake Michigan was great. We enjoyed morning coffee and an evening drink on the patio which made for a memorable experience. The beach was great. On a windy day, the kids enjoyed the waves and on others the calm water. The water is shallow so is very safe for kids and the beach has white sand. St. Joseph is close by and we went there a couple of nights. Plenty to do there, including restaurants and shops. Great small town feel.

CONDO

The Condo was in immaculate condition. Very clean, bright and welcoming. We had everything we needed and had no issues at all. The pictures reflect exactly as the condo was. The fire pit outside the condo was very nice, and we used it in the evenings. We used the pool a couple of times which was clean and never busy.

The only downside I can think of was the steep walk down to the beach, but that's expected in this area.
