Charming House with Private Beach Access
average rating of 4.0 based on 14 reviews

The house had everything we needed for our trip. It's simple and stocked with all the necessities.

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and stayed for a few days to celebrate our last month before a new addition to our family. We found a nice place to start a tradition! Love how close it is to warren dunes, the roads and terrain in the subdivision help preserve the natural landscape and the close proximity to the beach was just what we needed for morning and sunset walks with our fur baby and time during the day for the rest of us. We enjoyed grilling and a fire and the proximity to stores was great for where we were. Nothing like waking up to the birds and falling asleep to the crickets.

A wonderful home where the whole family had their own space, but could also be together.

  • 4 of 5

Easy beach access. Close to a small playground- which our children loved. Plenty of room for our 6 adults and 2 children. Kitchen well stocked with needed appliances and place settings.

Only negatives: there was quite a bit of dust/dirt on main floors...which was a challenge with littles crawling around on the first day.

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.
