We decided to take a short getaway to SW Michigan, having been told that it is a beautiful area. My husband chose this condo based on the central location (just a few minutes drive to St. Joseph's and South Haven) and the lake access. We walked on the beach often and loved how peaceful it was.
The condo itself is comfortable, something that just doesn't come across in pictures. It even passed our "rainy day" test: When it rained one day, we were happy to stay inside and relax. The owner sends detailed instructions in advance that tell you everything you need to know about the property, as well as terms and conditions of your stay.
Great updated home, pictures are great but don't do it justice, steps from what feels like a private beach, definitely would like to stay again..
The wife and I rented the condo from a Thursday-Monday morning. The condo has everything you could want for your getaway: beach access (pretty much your own private beach), comfortable beds to sleep in, deck with a huge patio table for cards and dinner outside, fire pit with chairs and a nice kitchen. We really enjoyed everything about our stay and will renting the condo out again next summer!
The good: 1) the condo is in great condition--new interior, great deck, well-stocked kitchen, 3 TVs; 2) beach is exquisite -- private, clean, great sand, water not as cold as expected; 3) very responsive owner, usually returning emails within the hour and calls within 5 minutes; 3) lots to do in area -- visit St. Josephs, visit wineries, and pick fresh fruit (we did cherries and raspberries). Whole family (two adults plus four kids) had a great time. The not-so-good: 1) there are some rundown properties near the condo which give you an "uh-oh" feeling when you first arrive (which is soon dispelled when you see the condo interior and beach); 2) the walk to the beach is surprisingly steep and unsuitable for the handicapped or elderly (wasn't a problem for us); 3) informed by owner that we are being charged additionally for leaving several items in refrigerator and for leaving hand-washed dishes to dry in the drying rack. Rationale was this increased the cleaning costs. After paying a $95 dollar cleaning fee already this seems excessive. Still waiting to see what the fee ends up being and when the rest of the deposit will be returned. This item alone bumps review to 4 stars from 5.
Great condo -- nice updates! Well stocked kitchen and nice furnishings. Beautiful deck, patio, deck furniture, and fire pit. Short walk to the beach.
This vacation home is beautiful inside! It is spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The beach was wonderful. We mainly had it all to ourselves. We were disappointed that the heated pool was not even open. I feel like we should have been told this before we arrived. This would not have changed out plans but would have had our expectations in different place. We have 3 small children and were counting on the pool being available. We went looking for the shared laundry and opened a door where we found a washer and dryer which didn't seem to not be in working order and the smell was horrible. Which I assume was the musty smell we could smell in the 2nd bedroom. Overall we had a great relaxing vacation!
