About Edward Korson

Practicing CPA with rental properties in Douglas, and Saugatuck.

Edward Korson purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Edward Korson chose Saugatuck

After adding the 2,600 ft addition, and the kids left home, I opted to covert 900-1,000 sq ft of space to rental apartment allowing a pet friendly (subject to approval, of course)property to the mix. Area has few properties which allow this, and goal was to offer this to tenants who want to enjoy their vacation with their four legged family members.

What makes this apartment unique

Very large deck with two grills on one end with table and chairs, unbrella, and sitting area on other end (love seats, chairs, tables, rugs, large appointed plants. Very manicured back yard at your disposal privately.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The guest who found this property through Home Away should never be allowed to rent anyone's property unless you do not care about breakage, absolute abuse to the apartment, and literally living like pigs. I have never seen anything like this before in 20 years. They should never be allowed to rent properties. The renter was William A. and Ann Marie S., They snuck in a guest and when it was discovered they claimed there was a lost email which was an absolute lie. There is breakage to appliances in the apartment, and never have I had any guest leave the apartment as if pigs had stayed for two weeks without supervision. I am totally shocked and these people should never be allowed to rent your property, that is if you care what it is treated like. The email used was

Nice and quiet gateway

  • 5 of 5

If Saugatuck has suburbs this would be one. Nice area with nice houses, lot of trees, very quiet, maybe to quiet. Downtown Saugatuck is easily accessible, takes about 10 minutes by the car. There are no sidewalks so I wouldn’t recommend walking that distance but it could be nice walk. House is surrounded by trees, back yard is very nice and spending some time on the porch grilling, playing cards or just sitting and talking is very enjoyable. Ed is good host with a lot of nice tips about restaurants and places to go.

Owner's Response: Hope you all made it home safely! Was great to have you and the baby. Think you hit all the great spots and hope you made it to Cranes after you left. You'll have to come back next year. We'll go back through grilling 101! Ed Korson

Nicely done

  • 5 of 5

While others have complained that the unit is below ground, at the end of the day, my trip was not about spending daylight inside. The space was clean, comfortable and well taken care of with extras like seasonings, coffee, shampoo and area information.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure having you all here and enjoyed having you. Looking forward to your return.. Maybe after I'm done with physical therapy I'll take your mother on to a walk to town! . Have a blessed day!

We have stayed here 5 consecutive years and will continue to do so. Ed, the owner, is a marvelous host and has become a dear friend over the years. We would recommend these accommodations to anyone who enjoys beautiful surroundings and amazing hospitality. Susie and Sandy

Way better than any hotel

  • 5 of 5

Ed is such an amazing host! My daughter and I had a wonderful stay! The apartment is so clean and kept up very well! It is also very spacious. Ed knows the area very well and is there if you need any information on great hot spots. He is super welcoming, we loved being able to go and sit on his deck to eat our lunch or dinner. Thank you for being such a great host and making our stay a great one! We will be sure to come back and stay at your apartment when we are in the area!

Affordable vacation apartment near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Ed was a gracious host and his apartment was reasonably priced, clean & roomier than expected. The apartment is down a flight of stairs but the windows are larger than standard basement windows. I believe the lack of natural lighting mentioned by others is due to the beautiful landscaping and numerous mature trees. It's a trade off but worth it in my opinion. I'll go to the beach for natural lighting. Also, the windows are not sealed shut as one reviewer claimed because that would be against code. My 13 year old son and I were able to open them without a problem.

We took some pictures of Ed's place with our drone and will add a few if I can figure out how that's done.

Owner's Response: Rafe: You and your family were wonderful guests. The only thing I would have added had I been able to would have been a little more sun, but you still had a good time on the beach. Your children are so well behaved that I'm sure you are busting with pride. Hope to see you next year and since my PT is going so well, maybe I'll grill us all some dinner on the deck. Thanks so much for the drone pictures and video of the house from above. Too cool! Have a blessed day and look forward to seeing you the next time!
