Guest Reviews

Well kept, stylish, comfortable and great communication with Waya Rentals! by Edward P. 08/01/2017
There were 6 of us that stayed in the condo. 3 adults and 3 kids. This condo was very well maintained, clean, stylish, comfortable/cozy and had everything a family would need to enjoy their stay in New Buffalo.

For those familiar with the Town of New Buffalo this gated community is roughly 1-mile west of Whittaker and east of Grand Beach. The community is beautiful, quiet and well taken care of. The pool was nice with patio area, grill and restrooms. You could spend a day at the pool and walk back to the condo for dinner and games in the evening. We, never made it to the tennis courts so cannot comment, but imagine it to be in great shape.

The beach access was a nice addition, unfortunately, the water was high and beach had been washed away with the steps leading straight into large rocks and surf. To be fair, we were told about this prior to booking earlier this year. The good news is that the view of the lake from the beach access is spectacular

Perfect for taking in a sunset. There is an area about 25'x25' that has sand, a bit of shade and room to sunbathe, kids playing and/or taking in the view.

WiFi: unfortunately during our stay the condos WiFi kept dropping signal, shutting down etc.... I had to reboot many times with varied success. The impressive part/news is that when I contacted Waya they emailed me back quickly with options and the condos owner called to express concern and to help get it up and running. Being on a vacation our focus was to unwind and stay off of devices as much as possible, which was a welcome change for the adults, but our 16yr old niece was burning through her data that week.

Kitchen was well equipped, functional and perfect for dinners at home. There is a Webber grill which we used once and was perfect for dinner for 6.

Seating areas were comfortable and nice to kick back, relax and enjoy time with family.

Steps: I only address and mention because there are several. My mother has trouble getting around and didn't fully recognize how many there were. This is no fault of the condo or Waya rentals, but wanted to be clear for future guests. There are ~30 steps, with landings, leading to the condo. Bedroom 2 and 3 are on the lower level with steps leading down. Master suite was great, full/queen nice and the 3rd room with trundle was adequate for kids or one adult. There were 2 nice inflatable mattresses available and easy to setup.
