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!

Fantastic for a large group

  • 5 of 5

I cannot believe how perfect this house was for our group. We were 5 couples in town for a wedding. We were able to spend some wonderful time together on the main floor and on the perfect deck, but we also had privacy.

It got a little hot and then rainy, but it didn't matter, the deck has a roll out shade! Marta has thought of everything. Form the unique decorations to the well appointed bathrooms and kitchen.

Don't hesitate to rent this place.....we plan on visiting again.

Perfect vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation home for our family. There were 12 of us plus our Corgi, Olive. We had plenty of room, each of the couples had a bedroom and bath and the kitchen was top shelf!! We cooked a lot of our meals and we found the kitchen to be stocked with every utensil and item we was such a perfect vacation home. We were a right at the edge of this charming town so we could easily walk (a few feet) to all the restaurants, bars, park, and ice cream shop. We spent a great deal of time on the deck in the front of the house where we could do a lot of people watching and enjoy each others company. All in all a winner.... Marta was easily available by phone and was so helpful in answering all our questions...
