Of all the places I go this is my "Happy Place"!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property has been our favorite for several years now. My family and I find everything we need and more in this clean, well equipped home. Recent renovations have made it even more inviting and comfortable. Maria is a great hostess and we keep finding more beach toys for the kids each visit. The enclosed porch is the perfect place to play games or cards and watch the thunderstorms over the lake if you are lucky enough to catch one. We enjoy grilling out on the deck and of course enjoying the sunsets. My grandchildren beg for just one more week!!

Keeps getting better

  • 4 of 5

Just spent our second Memorial Day weekend rental here, and the property keeps getting better. The updated kitchen is lovely, and our group of seven really appreciated the second shower in the west unit. Huge beautiful beach, comfy beds, lots of space to spread out; the only thing keeping me from a five-star rating is the lack of comfortable furniture -- much of it is great vintage (which isn't necessarily known for comfort). Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Easy access to towns such as Union Pier, Sawyer (Greenbush Brewery and fun shops), and Three Oaks (Journeyman Distillery is a new favorite). Definitely hope to return.

Great place for a large group beach vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time staying at the house (west side)! It is very spacious and it was great to only be steps from the beach. We loved watching the sunrise and the sunset over Lake Michigan from the back porch. Maria has a number of beach games/rafts/chairs that are available to use as well. The only things that made it slightly difficult were the dishwasher that didn't work and the dryer that took a couple of cycles to dry a full load of towel. The east side of the house is already renovated, and I'm told that the west side will be renovated for this coming summer, so that should take care of those 2 issues. Otherwise, it was a wonderful stay!

Best location

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family and friends enjoyed being so close to the beach, in fact right on the beach! A large variety of beach toys and chairs are provided. We rented the west side of duplex and it is rustic but easy to enjoy. We also enjoyed some fantastic sunsets (including some of Chicago's tallest buildings) from the large deck and campfires on the beach. A concert in Washington Park was pleasant and the zoo was fun too. Our ND family took advantage of the short (40 minutes) drive to campus.

Maria, the owner, was responsive and easy to reach.

We are looking forward to repeating next year!!
