The most awesome 12 person vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exquisite! The house was emaculate and very user friendly. Instructions on how to use the hot tub, sauna and appliances were very clear and easy to follow. We were a party of 12 and slept very comfortably. In fact, I think 14 would still be comfortable sleeping here! There was enough space to accommodate everyone. The new queen bed in the master bedroom was sooo comfortable! We forgot a few things including water shoes, toothbrushes, a sewing kit and laundry detergent....but she provided all of that and a bottle of wine and chocolates! We were impressed at how accurately she described the home and sleeping accommodations on vrbo. It took all the anxiety out of vacationing. The pictures on the website also provide you with a virtual tour of the home. Her attention to detail and communication skills were top notch. Prior to confirming our reservation, she contacted us to review all the details of the sleeping arrangements and rental policies. All rules and directions were clearly written, discussed and agreed upon. Upon arrival, the home not only met but exceeded our expectations! Sitting on the deck eating lunch fresh off the gas grill was wonderful! Had to say we LOVED the outdoor hot shower! We had a great time and would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great escape . Can't wait to reserve our vacation here next summer!

Stunning!! Beautiful views...one of the best family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been more pleased with our time at this Sutton's Bay home! It was exactly what we were looking for and more! The home easily slept the nine of us! My sister has a baby and there was a pack and play and a gate kept inside one of the rooms. The owners keep shampoo and soap in the showers and laundry detergent by the washer and dryer. They basically make it easy for you to come up, unpack and immediately start enjoying the lake. They keep bikes in the garage, kayaks and canoes on the beach and enough life jackets in a variety of sizes to meet our needs. The hot tub is awesome and so is the house! We were thrilled with the property. So much so that my sister cried when we left! Thank you Hanan for allowing us to use your home!!!

Great lake house for family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a little over a week and enjoyed our time here. The house is great for families as it has everything from sand toys, pack and play and all of the basic kitchen essentials (including a grill.). The property is set a bit above the water with a stairway leading down to beac/dock/water. This was convenient because we put a baby gate on the stairway to worry a little less with small children. There is a dock and perfect little beach with breakwater for small children to play. They also have a nice hot tub with a bit of a lake view. The owner is very friendly and invested in her guests satisfaction with the experience.

First class vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owner did an excellent job describing the property and everything that was included. They were very easy to get a hold of and went out of their way to make sure we had an excellent experience! The view was spectacular and the location was superb. Close to Traverse City, yet far enough to feel secluded in the outdoors! This property easily slept 10 guys comfortably. Overall, this was an amazing experience from beginning to end! I hope to rent this property again soon!

Very good time!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with lots of ammenities! The only thing that would have made it better would be some updates to the home. They aren't necessary at all- especially for families and what not. Everything worked well and was in excellent condition- just left some to be desired as far as the interior design. Outside and outdoors were spectacular and the owner is very reachable and caring. Extra care is taken to make sure renters have everything they want/need. Thanks again! We would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time and that we were able to get you in a day early at no charge! As far as the interior design and updates...ALL kitchen appliances, the washer/dryer, TV's, beds/linens, towels, outdoor shower, gas grill, kayaks, and outdoor seating are less than five yrs old. The kitchen and all 3 bathrooms have cream colored Corian countertops. The basement was finished and the interior of the house was painted just last year. Our home is a very unique "deck house" and was maticulously designed to provide the most gorgeous views of the Bay you will ever see from the inside of a house!! Any further modifications would jeopardize the architectural Integrity of the home.

Beautiful home, beautiful setting, owner a pleasure to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beautiful home twice now. The house is impeccably clean, well stocked with everything you might need, and comfortable. The setting is perfect - secluded, very private, with beautiful views of the bay. Our families especially enjoyed the beachfront fire pit and enjoying our morning coffee on the deck with the sights and sounds of the lake right there.

The owner is a pleasure to work with, she is very responsive and went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. We hope to return for future stays!

Close to both downtown Suttons Bay (about 3 miles) and Traverse City (about 12 miles). Easy access to Traverse City and M22, but away from the crowds and noise. All water sports welcome on this Bay! It has a great hard sand bottom, crystal clear and clean water, wonderful for kayaking, boating, swimming and tubing. Only a few miles to the DNR boat ramp. West Bay is part of Lake Michigan and has cleaner water, bigger waves and sandier beaches. Petoskey Stones have waited millions of years for you to come find them. Close to two golf courses, 12 vineyards (which offer free wine tasting) and the Leelanau Sands Casino!
