Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this unit for a short getaway. The beach felt like it was ours and ours alone. The unit is exactly as pictured. We would definitely stay here again if we were looking for something on Lake Michigan

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The private beach is one of the highlights of our place. Come back again to enjoy the many wineries and fresh fruit farms in the area.

Fantastic week away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location with expectations of having some good time away from Chicago on the beach. What we found was a fabulous set up with a condo which was more than enough space for our family and a short walk to a nearly private beach! The walk to the beach is steep but wasn't too bad; I managed to lug our stuff up and down from the beach a few times a day and my 3 y/o daughter was carried. We made use of a fire pit each night and roasted smores. We took one dinner in St. Joseph and one in South Haven as it is located very close to each. We will for sure be coming back.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and made the most of your vacation by having dinner out two nights in nearby St. Joseph and South Haven. Also wonderful to hear you had great beach weather on our quiet private beach. We recently purchased a golf cart that is now available to rent with our place. We look forward to having you back next year!

Every expectation met.

  • 4 of 5

Our unit was beautifully furnished and decorated. Beds were uncomfortable but otherwise all our expectations were met. Steep hill to the beach, really needed a golf cart to make it truly enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We just added memory foam bed toppers to all the mattresses this spring and have had a lot of positive feedback on the beds, so we are sorry to hear you found them uncomfortable. We also recently purchased a golf cart that will be available to rent with our condo in spring 2018.

Beautiful Condo near great little towns!

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I had an amazing time. The condo was well-appointed and beautifully decorated. It was right in between several great little towns for shopping and dining. The only downfall was the hill down to the beach. If you have any kind of medical issues, especially knee, getting up and down that walkway is extremely difficult. You have a beautiful private deck with tables that are beautiful to sit out in the afternoon or evening to eat dinner and watch wildlife. We would definitely come again but next time we'll find out about being able to rent a golf cart.

The owner was very quick to answer any questions or concerns that we had, thanks for everything Russ.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay and sorry you found the path to the beach difficult. We do realize this paved path can be a challenge for some, which is why we disclose this in our VRBO listing. There is a secondary stairway option to the beach, which some people prefer to use or renting a golf cart would be a great solution for your next stay.

Nice house with some problems

  • 3 of 5

Overall the unit itself is nicely furnished and comfortable. Unfortunately there were some problems. The washing machine wasn't working, and neither was the coffee maker or the grill. We called the owners to discuss this, and were told a repair person was coming to fix the washer (didn't happen while we were there) and that there was another coffee pot somewhere in the house. (If there was, we couldn't find it, and we looked everywhere.) Neither of these things are the fault of the owners, guests will wash too much sandy stuff in the washer and break things, but in other rental properties I've stayed in there was a local caretaker we could call to solve these kinds of issues. Here, we just had to live without the amenities we'd been promised for the week, and you might too.

A second problem, the house is described as being "on the water". It's on a beautiful bluff overlooking the lake, and the path down to the beach (which is small, and during our stay full of sharp sticks) is long and VERY steep. Our two year old could just barely make it back up. In the end we only used it twice before we gave and started driving 20 minutes to South Beach in South Haven. You might want to take this into account if you have small children or anyone not in good shape in your party.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear you were unhappy with your stay at our villa. We try extremely hard to ensure everything is well maintained and updated for all of our guests. There is a secondary washing machine which is located in the room next to our laundry room. The grill and coffee maker were both working fine for the guests that stayed prior to you and we are currently staying in our place now and haven't had any issues with either of them. We just unplugged and reset the Keurig and it was working and we also grilled hamburgers for dinner. As for the path to the beach, all homes that are located in SW Michigan sit on a bluff and our private path, is paved, allows golf carts and has a staircase option to get to the beach as well. This is one of the the only paved path down to the beach in the area. Again we are sorry to hear that your family didn't enjoy your stay, but unfortuanely unforeseen circumstances can happen.

I loved the property.

  • 5 of 5

The summer villa was beautiful!!! I loved the new updated appliances, furniture, rooms, deck, etc.

I also liked the keyless entry. The owners have taken great care of their property and we were able to receive everything promised in the description and contract. I would love to rent this property again in the future.
