Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

Tim's house was absolutely perfect for our week long stay for our daughter's wedding! The house was sooo nice - everything was in perfect order and Tim left great instructions covering every detail. There was plenty of anything we needed - kitchen utensils and dishes, towels (even a whole basket of beach towels!). The upstairs game room was fabulous for our guests. The location about a mile out of town was fine - we could get anywhere we needed to go in town in just a few minutes. . We used the pool and hot tub almost every mid-September it was open which was a very nice surprise. This is a beautiful very well maintained home and I would highly recommend it!

Everything we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well kept and had everything that we needed for our stay. Just a short walk to the pool and the playground! Our air conditioning went out during our stay, but they responded quickly and had it up and running again in a day and kept us updated on the progress the entire time. I would recommend this home! Thanks for a great vacation!

Beautiful property, furnishings and location!

  • 5 of 5

EVERYTHING was just perfect and so very inviting... from the moment we stepped in the door until it sadly was time to leave! Thank you so very much for all the love and care you put into your home on the St Joseph River. We loved all the handy and welcoming notes around the house. The beds, bedding, bath towels and furnishings were excellent. I guess this especially stood out to us because we had just come from a high rise on Lake Michigan in Chicago that had a "drop dead" location and view - BUT - the furnishings and supplies were worse than inadequate! So, when we drove to your place in Michigan - it was really like "coming home"! Again thank you.... We will be returning for sure!

An Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet, private and beautiful home. Tim's property is top notch and was a great place to go with our family.

Being close to Silver Beach - and within very reasonable driving distance to Kalamazoo (Air Zoo & Bells Brewery), South Bend and a myriad of awesome Golf Courses (Lost Dunes, Lake Michigan Hills, Berrien Hills and Point O Woods) allowed for us to do a number of different things during our stay. Our kids loved fishing in the river and playing the pool and playground.

Could simply NOT have been a better stay.

Amazing vacation and house!!! Heavenly!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing stay at this beatiful home! I didn't want to leave. We made so many wonderful memories vacationing here. The house has so many great features. We absolutley loved the game room. The house has everything you can think of and more! Tim and I had great communication. The club house pool was delightful and many times we had it all to ourselves. Silver Beach is amazing and we also loved Jean Klock Park as well. Our son got married at that park on the beach while we were in town. We rode our jet skis down the river in front of the house, and took them out to Lake Michigan as well. You will definitely not be disappointed in renting this home. It has such a sweet charm, and very relaxing to sit on either porch and watch the boats go by. I would love to return. Thanks for everything!!
