About David Ouyang

We have been vacationing in Michigan for years, but after our first visit to the Leelanau Peninsula, we knew we had found the place where we wanted to buy our vacation home. Our kids (11 and younger) may be the only people who love the area and our home more than we do.

David Ouyang purchased this house in 2013

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group too was three generations, including two children and five adults. We spent 1 week at this wonderful home, which is right on the water in West Grand Traverse Bay. Beach is small, but still room for children to play. The dock, with seating area, extends far into the calm water which was great for swimming. Kayaks are provided by the owner, which we used daily. We did not choose to rent the stand up paddle board at an additional expense. The back deck, with bbq, was used daily. Only comment is that their should be a screened in area to sit at night. The use of the hot tub is not included, which would have been nice to use. Kitchen is well equipped. Very clean home. The owner was very responsive when we had questions during our stay. The children's bedroom has with trains and Lego's and there are also puzzles and different games in the house.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations, including two children and four adults, stayed at the Lee Point Beach House during a beautiful week in August. Some in our party had been to Leelanau Peninsula many times before and others were first-timers, but we would all highly recommend this cottage! David and Kim were both so gracious and extremely responsive--the very best interaction I have had with owners on VRBO, no question. The house was both beautiful and extremely practical for a group. It was so helpful that each bedroom had its own bathroom, as that made getting ready much easier. Everything was very clean, and the house was very well equipped--everything we needed was there. We had a lot of fun playing games and doing puzzles when it rained, and our daughter loved playing with the trains in the kids' bedroom. Proximity to the water and all of the great windows in house overlooking the view was fantastic, and we had a lot of fun using the kayaks. The location of Lee Point Beach House is also perfect--it is close to M22 without being on the road. And it is such a short drive to Suttons Bay, which is a great little town (make sure to try Little Bee's Gelato when you are in town!). However, it is also an easy and not-too-far drive to Traverse City (make sure to go to Trattoria Stella there!) for everything there. Ultimately, we had an absolutely perfect vacation at Lee Point Beach House and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Anna - We are so happy that you could use our home as a base to introduce your parents to the wonderful Leelanau Peninsula! Look forward to having you all back next year! Thank you for the kind review. David and Kim

Recommend With Confidence

  • 5 of 5

Three couples stayed in this beautiful home for a long weekend. It is even more beautiful than the photos. We enjoyed the fact that each bedroom has its own spacious bathroom. The rooms look out over the beach....great for watching the sun rise. The home is very clean, well equipped, and comfortable. There is even a slow cooker, which we made use of one day. The owner has an extremely informative handout, which we referred to many times during the weekend. We went to numerous wineries, all of which were conveniently close. I can recommend this home to you with confidence.

Home on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (parents with adult children and partners) had a wonderful HOT week. One of the many amenities of this lovely cottage is air-conditioning, thank goodness! Clean, well designed, and aesthetically pleasing, this cottage had everything right down to a large blender (for ice cream drinks) to a large electric griddle for pancakes and French toast. We also enjoyed the paddle board and kayak. Next time for the bicycles!

Beautiful, like-new cottage in prime location, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented cottages in this area for 30+ years and we were looking for a clean, up-to-date cottage to rent in Suttons Bay, and especially on Lee Point Road, since their beaches have very gradual entry and shallow water, also calm for the little ones. This cottage was a real find! It has the king size bed, A/C and heat, and other amenities we appreciated and were looking for. It was very clean, and looks like a brand-new cottage! The decorations are beautiful and not crowded and the rooms are spacious with lots of bathrooms and two tubs. They have kayaks to use, bikes to borrow and the kitchen is well-stocked with basics and lots of serving ware. The deck gave us welcome shade to sit and enjoy the water during the day or in the evening. There are so, so many windows that even when I was preparing dinner, I could look out and watch the kids playing and enjoy the beach view. The proximity to the water is unusual for Lee Point Road, too. Many of the cottages seem to be across the road from their beaches, so this was extra special to have a cottage right next to the water. The beach was small this year but the kids had just enough sand to play in. We liked the detailed instructions Dave gave us, so we knew what to expect and what was expected of us. They even had a lot of ideas, maps and brochures for things to do in the area. Wonderful vacation!

Lovely house right on the bay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my family. We loved the kitchen and were able to cook great dinners with the local products. (There are great stores for food and wine nearby, but good restaurants in the area too.) The deck on the main floor is huge and has plenty of seating. The upstairs deck has a really pretty view and is also nice. The whole house was really pretty and super clean which is very important to me. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all good sized and comforable. The master bedroom with the large bathroom on the main floor was perfect for my elderly parents.

The absolute favorite thing about the house for my husband and me was listening to the waves from the water, which we could also hear in the upstairs bedroom at night.

The owner Dave was sooo helpful and easy to communicate with before, during and after our stay. My father left his phone and Dave made sure to send it back to him within days. This was a huge relief to all of us.
