Southwest Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House-3 bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queen) 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 6-8

Our spacious two-level newly remodeled Union Pier ‘Casa del Sol’ house offers top of the line everything - and close to everything!

Looking for a home to rent for summer 2016 or for a fall, winter or spring long weekend get-a-way? Our fully remodeled home is perfect for your vacation! Come and enjoy the gorgeous Michigan beaches with its blue waters and picturesque sunsets. Take leisurely scenic walks, shop at local antique markets, go blueberry picking, rent kayaks or treat yourself to one of the region’s mouth watering restaurants - all just minutes away from Casa del Sol.


About Our Home

Our home, which has 3 Master Bedrooms (1 King Master Suite and 2 Jr. Queen Masters) is perfect for families or for 3 couples to share. Enjoy the beach, spend quality time with your friends and family, or just relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life.

Our home has been fully remodeled (just completed in the spring 2013). The house offers Central Air throughout (no noisy window air-conditioners!), a first floor King Master Suite with a full on-suite bathroom and two Jr. Queen Master bedrooms upstairs with shared bath. We also have a Media Room with an 80 inch HDTV!

You’ll love our fully-equipped, modern kitchen which opens to a spacious deck, and an enormous Weber gourmet grill that is anxiously awaiting your BBQing skills. There is a great bonfire pit area in backyard for evening S'mores!


Living Area

In our main living room you will find beautiful hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace, a very spacious U-shaped leather couch and a large bay window for natural light to flow in. We have equipped the home with everything you’ll need for a perfect vacation and inside the coffee table you will even find plenty of family-fun board games to keep you entertained for hours.


Eat-In Fully-Equipped Modern Kitchen and Separate Dining Area

Our brand-new kitchen is nicely appointed with new cabinets and Granite countertops. It is of course fully-equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, a blender and a toaster. We also have more than 12 plates, glasses, forks, etc. so you don't have to wash your breakfast dishes before you eat lunch. And plenty of pots and pans so you can easily cook anything you need as well as beautiful platters to display your ‘happy hour’ buffet. The kitchen dining area seats six and the French doors can be opened wide for fresh air and green scenery while you enjoy your meals. You will also find a Bluetooth wireless speaker so you can dance around while you cook or sing out loud when you are done eating – so bring your iTunes!

The Dining Room area features a large wood table with a bench on one side and chairs all around for your larger family gatherings.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat! The house was so nicely decorated and clean plus there was tons of space to move around and socialize with everyone! We had no problem accessing everything we needed in the house and the list of suggested "things to do" list that was in our welcome binder was very helpful!

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Exactly as advertised. Quiet neighborhood, though it was the last week of March so the area was quiet in general. Short drive to New Buffalo for lunch and beers at The Stray Dog. We're familiar with area but had not been to the little county park along the river between the house and New Buffalo. There is an elevated platform out over the river there that is pretty cool. Worth stopping for.

Great Holiday Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. I would be happy to stay here again, my only issue was that I was in one of the upstairs bedrooms and because of the way the walls slant, I felt like I was bent over the entire time I was getting ready for fear of hitting my head. But I was not upstairs long enough for it to make it a bad experience. Nicely stocked kitchen, we made our Thanksgiving dinner there. The house is nice and close to the casinos and the Lighthouse Mall. A fun time!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was easy to find and the entry instructions were easy to follow. Upon entering the house, it was very clean and gorgeous. They was enough space for all 6 of us and having 3 bathrooms was great! I would definitely stay here again! The only thing I would suggest is having a DVD player with the TV upstairs (unless we just missed it).

Conveniently located and very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I splurged on our fall vacation this year by spending a bit more than we normally would so that we could rent this vacation home - it was our 10 year anniversary. We enjoyed a weekend by ourselves, and then our 4 year old joined us for an additional full week of family vacation.

Casa del Sol is very conveniently located near several beaches (New Buffalo Beach, Townline Rd Beach, and others), near Warren Dunes State Park, Warren Woods Park (old-growth Beech tree forest with a hiking trail just the right length for us with the 4 year old), Galien River County Park (walking trails and observation platform along the river and through the marsh). All of these are mere minutes away. Oh, and there are a number of restaurants in close by (the owners have a marvelous list of many of their favorites in a binder in the house), and grocery stores in New Buffalo as well as in Three Oaks. Five years ago we stayed in a different SW Michigan vacation rental, but spent less on the rental costs so were farther away from these amenities. It was nice to have our anniversary as an excuse to splurge this time!

We chose to come to this part of SW Michigan to take advantage of the Three Oaks Spokes bicycle routes that marked with permanent roadside signage throughout the area - routes vary in length from about 12 miles all the way up to 60 miles. The routes originate at Dewey Trading Company and Bicycle Museum in nearby Three Oaks, Michigan, but several of the routes run right by Casa del Sol, so if you obtain a map of the routes you can easily just take off on your bikes right from the house! Hard copies of the route maps are available free at Dewey Trading Company, or online or via snail mail if you order before you come to visit.

The home itself was very comfortable, and it was clean. Beds were comfortable, living room couch comfortable for napping and snuggling for story time with the preschooler. Decorating style is tasteful. Much to the delight of our preschooler, we built a fire almost every night in the fire pit out back, and cooked hot dogs and s'mores each of those nights.

We would highly recommend this property to you. It is the type of property at which we would be willing to stay again in the future.
