Delightful resort, Nice little house

  • 4 of 5

I can't say enough good things about The Beachwalk Resort. It's just delightful! If you are a family looking for a lovely place to go for a pleasant beach vacation on Lake Michigan, this is a fantastic choice. I liked this house in particular for it's size. Just perfect for our family of 4. Many of the properties in the resort are meant for family reunion type gatherings but Life's a Beach is one of the few that works for just 1, nuclear family. My only wish for the property is that it was a little better cleaned and stocked. The dishwasher was full of debris from some kind of new plate price tags that got washed and strewn about on all of the other plates. Almost every single dish had to be re-washed by hand when we arrived because there was sticky debris on them. The remote to the bedroom tv had been hidden by the cleaning crew and it took 2 days before someone came by to find it for us. Then the batteries were dead and corroded and we had to replace them ourselves. A rug by the master bed was soaking wet--fresh out of the washer I guess. There was no hair dryer either and I had to wait several days to have one delivered. Exactly 1 towel and 1 washcloth was alotted per person. The description said "if you run low on towels you'll have to wash them" but exactly one washcloth means you are already running low. They should specify exactly 1. All of these things are fixable and I hope they do fix them because this really is a lovely home. Despite these minor annoyances, we enjoyed our time very much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a review. I just want to rebuttal the cleaners came on the evening of check in and showed you the remote was sitting next to the TV, it was not hidden. I sure hope to not seem defensive, however your husband texted me around 8pm and said you required a hair dryer and I had a brand new hair dryer delivered by 9am the following morning. We try very hard to be accommodating to guest services and timely. Aside from that I'm glad you had a great time in the cottage and resort.

Very Cute, but not so clean

  • 3 of 5

Life's a peach was perfect for my size family, 4 adults and 1 toddler. The location was convenient to the pool and beach. However, we were disappointed by no binder of information left at the house. We didn't know the area, what was available to us in the Beachwalk community, or the WI-FI log in. If this house is cleaned by a cleaning company before the next rental comes, they need to be retrained. The floors were dirty and the comforter in the master had dried blood on it. It was very dingy and looked like it hadn't been laundered for quite some time. These are easy fixes. If these things were corrected it would make a wonderful getaway.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to hear you thought the house was nice, as it truly is a little gem. If any cleaning issues were mentioned during your stay we certainly would have had them resolved, promptly. I am disappointed at the false comment regarding the comforter. Our team and the homeowners have thoroughly inspected each blanket and comforter in the home and there is ABSOLUTELY no stain, especially blood. All blankets are washed regularly and would be most certainly be replaced if staining were present.

This place was perfect! We really enjoyed our stay! Brought my husband and myself along with 3 kids! House was large and we never felt crowded! Pictures did not do this adorable house justice! Very functional with fully equipped kitchen! We would stay again!
