About the property

Discover a peaceful lakefront retreat, named 'Makani Kai Cottage', at this cozy 3-bedroom, 1-bath vacation rental house in Waterford Township. Suitable for up to 8 guests, this 1,500-square-foot beach cottage rests right on Pleasant Lake and features a private dock and covered tiki bar. Practice your balance on one of the provided paddleboards or take a ride in the canoe. Get a different view of the glistening lake from a nearby hiking or mountain biking trail before playing a round of golf at White Lake Oaks Golf Course!


Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Full Bed | Living Room: Sofa Bed

Nestled right alongside Pleasant Lake, this cozy cottage home is perfect for a group of family and friends ready to explore southern Michigan's peaceful terrain during any season!

This single-story property welcomes you insides with warm hardwood floors and a spacious living area. Have a seat on the soft leather L-shaped couch in front of the flat-screen cable TV as you admire the lake views from the sliding glass doors.

Directly adjacent to the living space you'll find the fully equipped kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances and a chic breakfast bar.

Share your home-cooked meals and barbeque feasts out on the furnished patio or take a seat at the dockside tiki bar as the honorary bartender serves up specialty drinks.

Settle in for the evening in one of the 3 spacious bedrooms - 2 of which boast scenic lake views. For additional accommodations, the couch in the living area also doubles as a pullout sleeper sofa, suitable for 2 guests.


This lakefront property provides endless outdoor activities for everyone in the group to enjoy. Row the provided canoe across Pleasant Lake or test your balance on one of the 4 paddleboards. Opt for a motorized watercraft as you cruise the lake in the pontoon boat that’s available to rent for an additional fee.

When you're looking for a drier activity, pack a picnic and hike one of the nearby trails for a different view of the lake. Mountain bikers will delight in one of Michigan's most challenging courses at Pontiac Lake - only 2.5 miles from this home. During the winter, make sure to check out the slopes at the nearby Alpine Valley Resort.

Golfers can practice their swing at White Lake Oaks Golf Course, located just 1 mile from this property, before indulging in a sweet treat at the local favorite ice cream shop, Mr. C's. If you're in town in January, be sure to check out the Detroit Motor Show.

Looking to explore a more urban setting? Plan a visit to downtown Detroit where lively casinos, shopping venues, and unique dining experiences await. Visit the historic Ford Field or see a stage production at the Detroit Opera House - just a 40-minute drive from Waterford Township.

It was just what I wanted. Came to Michigan to visit family. It was clean, quaint and comfortable. Would stay here again. Enjoyed the rising sun view over the lake in the morning.

Beautiful view, quiet place, remodeled house

  • 5 of 5

Tim provides an amazing experience and stay. The house was very clean and newly remodeled. Everything functioned as it should. The view is incredible. There was plenty of room for our large family. Easy to get to and close to anything we needed. Definitely would like to come back in the warmer months.
