Cute cottage on the bay
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We enjoyed staying at this rental but unfortunately we were there during a heat wave in Sept. and there is no A/C. There are ceiling fans in 2 bedrooms, not in the 3rd and box fans for each room, but they were not enough to alleviate the heat. The other problem is there are no blinds in the windows facing the bay so the sun just beat into the living area! We were comfortable at night and did lots of swimming which helped. The rental people were great and the cottage fit our family of 6 adults easily. Also nice is the trail across the street and the easy walk into Suttons Bay.
Thank you for staying with us and sharing your concerns. We will look at adding more fans. Go figure, a heat wave in September!
