Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this house for several years and we always enjoy it. It meets all of our needs including location, amenities, comfort, affordability, closeness to the beach, and dog friendly policy. The wifi makes it possible to work and be connected if necessary. It is close to all of the wonderful activities in southwestern Michigan. We will continue to come here as long as it is available.

Not a good place for people with allergies

  • 1 of 5

The trip didn't start well. We arrived and found that the electricity to the half of the house did not work and had to reset the circuit breaker in the basement to get electricity. Then, we went upstairs and things got worse. The upstairs smells moldy and my whole family had allergic reaction because of the mold. We did not have good sleep for the two nights because everyone was sneezing and couldn't breathe too well.

Owner's Response: First of all we did not rent to anybody by the name of Ming Z. Your arrival date is August 2015, yet it's still July 2015. We'd appreciate if you didn't post misleading reviews, when we have no record of your staying at the property. Thanks, Amanda

Great Location basic house.

  • 3 of 5

I chose this property based on it's location and that it has internet. On those two features this house is fantastic. It's a short walk/drive to the private community beach which is beautiful and great for kids. The internet also worked great which was important for my husband who had to work during the week. The house was ready and clean when we arrived. We enjoyed the screened in front porch and the fire pit in the backyard. However it is worth noting that the layout of this house is unusual. There is one bedroom on the first floor with a double and a futon both squeaked terribly. The bathroom on the first floor is right off the kitchen next to the kitchen sink and doesn't have a lock. You walk through the king bedroom to access the queen bedroom and the 2nd floor bath. The beds were not terribly comfortable. If you are ok with the basic necessities this will work.

relaxing vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on vacation in Sawyer. The house was ready when we arrived. We really appreciated the wifi and being able to bring our dog. The cottage was a short walk to the beach and an easy drive to other southwestern Michigan cities.

Quiet and Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 rented this home during July 2013. It lived up to it's expectations. Quiet and had an amazing beach. It wasn't in walking distance for my family (3 children under 5!) but it could be. If you choose to drive though, its a short 2 minute drive with plenty of parking. The home was clean and nice. We had no issues while there and the owner was quick to respond to questions and issues (we forgot the key pad numbers to unlock the house! and she responded in less then 5 minutes with a text). There was plenty of room to spread out and I loved sitting on the front porch in the mornings. I highly recommend this home if you are looking for a great spot that is affordable!
