Well kept, comfortable, art-filled, and a perfect place for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

We are five siblings who get together once a year for a reunion. Our spouses are included so we need five bedrooms and five bathrooms. It has become increasingly difficult to find such places. This home was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and a warm place to come home to after our daily adventures. Our youngest couple is in their 60s and the rest are in their 70s and our days were filled with dune rides, the star of Saugatuck, meijer gardens, Hollands windmill island gardens and Cranes pie company for lunch. The sisters and I also worked in some shopping on our last afternoon there. We consulted the list of restaurants provided by Marta and enjoyed the welcome basket she provided. There is no question about where we would stay were we to visit this area again. One of our sibs was unable to make the trip but there would have been plenty of room for all. I could recommend Bowdies for steaks, the Italian restaurant that is close by for dinner, and any ice cream establishment. Every store, restaurant, art gallery, etc. had a small town feel and welcoming quality that you don't generally find in your daily life.

It is a beautiful and unusual house in a spectacular location.

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal setup for our group - five couples who travel regularly together. Everyone had their own space with a very nice public area to gather. This is our second fall stay here and we've already reserved for next year. The guys like to play golf and there are a few very nice courses nearby. The girls like to chat and shop and it offered ample opportunity for both of those as well. Most impressive are the eclectic design and decor. Unusual and interesting art and artifacts are everywhere. The large, modern kitchen overflows with everything anyone could need for cooking and even the panty is well stocked with both basics and specialties. We took advantage of the old-fashioned popcorn we could actually pop on the stove. The owner left a gift basket of chocolates, special crackers, wine and coffee. The WiFi was good. Located right downtown with a beautiful view of the marina it was close to shopping and eateries. Parking can be a problem on weekends but from late Sunday afternoon on it was no problem at all. Marta has been very accommodating and easy to work with. We always felt profoundly welcome.

This is the 4th time I have rented this property. The owner is very accommodating and helpful with planning your trip to the Saugatuck area by providing local information. The house is located in the "heart of town" with easy access to shops and restaurants. The house easily accommodated 4 couples and 1 individual. The deck overlooking the street and water is a great place to "people watch" and listen to live music at the Butler, across the street. The "welcome" basket is also a nice "personal" touch. I highly recommend a stay at this property.

Well-appointed spacious property in the best possible location in Saugatuck

  • 5 of 5

Marta did a great job for our family. Our arrival gift included plenty of tasty coffee and wine. The property had everything we needed including the location, parking, air conditioning, clean BBQ grill, plenty of bathrooms, comfortable beds and thick and soft towels. Couldn’t ask for a better place to relax in Saugatuck. Thanks Marta!

Perfect home for a waterside getaway, amazing location and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults + 1 infant rented Marta's home in Saugatuck for a long Memorial Day weekend getaway, and could not have been more pleased with the property. It was everything we needed for our family to enjoy the time together. With more than enough space to accommodate everyone, we found the communal areas in the upstairs dining area, kitchen, bar and especially 2nd floor porch overlooking the water to be absolutely perfect. I actually feel that the pictures do not do the house justice, as we were continually impressed with how well the home came together. Additionally, the two downstairs "apartment" units worked perfectly as people staying down in those rooms could easily go to bed (especially with infant) without being disturbed by anyone upstairs. The location could not be better - literally in the middle of things downtown with a direct view of the bay and marina/boats. Just steps away from all of the restaurants & bars, shopping and main tourist area, this home is absolutely sure to please anyone who stays here. All of the amenities provided for with the house were up to date, and as a collective group, we could not come up with anything that did not end up being perfect for our family during our stay. Marta was an incredibly gracious host, and went by far out of her way to accommodate us (even having a new grille installed to ensure we were able to enjoy time cooking at home together) along with helping to coordinate our way around the town. We have already talked about booking another stay at Marta's beautiful home, I would highly recommend this to anyone with a larger group who wants to be in the middle of the downtown Saugatuck area with amazing views and a beautiful home! Thank you for a great stay, Marta! We hope to visit again soon!
