Perfect family house and great location!
The house was perfect. Clean, comfortable, open and airy etc. It was fully stocked with pretty much anything you could need and the owners answered questions quickly when needed. There were plenty of towels, chairs and toys for the beach and plenty of extra games and books to keep my kids occupied. The front porch was perfect for morning coffee and the fire pit was fantastic for after dinner smores. The front sand yard was great for the kids and although not a beach front property, you still had a small water view, and being on the end of a dead end street is something that most parents can truly appreciate. The beaches were super clean and less then a 5 min' walk down the street and across and the sunsets by the light house were beautiful. Overall our family had a great week and would happily come back for a stay at this home!
Perfect home for beach vacation
Our family spent a week in this charming home which was tastefully decorated and was meant for folks to enjoy a week's getaway. Perfect location...just a walk to the beach, to a scenic channel for recreational boats, to a great outdoor restaurant, and a playground for kids. I recommend this home for a vacation anytime of the year. The home owners were very easy to work with. They had all vacation needs considered.
Our family just spent a week in this home and we enjoyed every minute. It is beautifully decorated, well-equipped with so many extras, and an easy walk to the beach. We are looking forward to coming back next summer!
Beautiful, Clean, Comfortable Cottage
No one was totally surprised when our family first walked into this newly built, lovely house, since we had viewed the photos of the property, on the VRBO website Everything inside and outside the house was spotless, and accommodating for our adult children and grandchildren. The open floor plan and large front porch, gave our family the opportunity to visit and share meals together. The house is located one street away from Pere Marquette Beach, and is situated on a dead-end street - ideal for families with children.
The owners of this property, Robert and Bonny Reed are exceptional landlords. Our family plans to reserve this lovely house for our next summer vacation.
This beautiful home is the perfect place to vacation. The house is even more beautiful than described. Very well maintained. My family of 7 (husband, son and wife and three grandchildren) spent a week here and we could not have asked for more. The beach is just a short walk away. The owners provide beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, everything a child could want. The kitchen is well equipped. The grandkids loved the bunk beds. Rooms are spacious. There are board games, books for adults and children. The outside is like a mini recreation area with a sandy front yard for playing games, the deck out back, picnic tables, chairs and fire pit just complete the place as the perfect spot. It is nice and shady out back. One evening we were using the fire pit and two deer walked right up to us. We had never been to this area before and we found plenty to do nearby. The owners are so sweet and helpful. They offered good advice on things to see and do. Could not have asked for a better place to stay.
