"Wow-New Buffalo Hidden Gem"

by John D


Great home, just like it was advertised, and even better! Loved the home, and the area, the downtown shops, restaurants, and everything else. We'll probably rent this home multiple times each year.

"Lovely place to stay"

by Nicole M.


Very nice house, located on a quiet street. The house was clean, the hot tub was clean, and there was a lovely screened-in porch off the back. We really enjoyed our stay here.

"Porch life"

by Gael B.


Spent most of our time on the beautiful screened porch overlooking the woods. House is roomy and very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils, pans, etc.

"Great Property"

by John P.


Wonderful, wooded, and quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the property managed by WAYA.

"House has it all"

by KC J.


Don't worry about bringing a thing when staying at this house in the off-season. It has every appliance one could need, puzzles, games, movies. Even a "junk" drawer with treasures. Super close to New Buffalo while still being in the woods. Was a perfect property for our girl's weekend and we all would definitely return.

"We really enjoyed our stay"

by Benita H.


We were pleased everything was in good working order. I thought it was a nice touch that WAYA Rentals reached out to me when we arrived to inquire how things are going. We have stayed at other home rentals and that is the first time that has happened--a nice touch.

"Perfect retreat!"

by Arielle M.


Our family could not have picked a better spot for our summer vacation. The house had everything we needed to relax and play in comfort and style.

"Great location and had everything"

by Stephanie K.


The house was exactly as listed! It had everything in the kitchen you would need (we only cooked breakfast)...but if was perfectly stocked! We had a minor problem with the hot tub (which wasn’t the owners fault) and they fixed it immediately! So close to everything. Would I stay here again...YES!!

"Great location - beautiful home"

by Kelly C.


We spent a girls' weekend in this beautiful home, and it was perfect for our stay! Lots of room, a large kitchen, and the hot tube and patio got LOTS of use. *Tip: if you plan to make lots of coffee, bring your own coffee pot. The house just comes with a Keurig. Otherwise, the kitchen is well stocked. It's a 5 min drive to town and there's plenty to do in the area. Thank you for providing such a great place to stay!

"Family Getaway"

by Mike T.


Our family enjoyed the property. Spacious clean home with many nice features. Close to downtown and lakefront. Great gathering space to enjoy with family and our granddaughters. We plan on renting this property again!

"Wonderful Clean Upgraded Home"

by Ellen Z


We rented this home at the last minute last week Aug 2020. It was clean and upgraded with lofted ceilings, fire pit, fireplace, screened in dining porch and beautiful backyard in the forest. It's one mile from the beach and we rode our bikes constantly. 2 large bedrooms for adults and 1 BR for 2-3 kids plus 1 extra day bed for another adult or child. Thank you! Great house!

"Perfect Spot"

by Joan & Peter T.


This home is in a perfect location. Me and my family had a wonderful time at this beautiful house. Very close to the lake and a short drive to New Buffalo. The house had plenty of space for all of us to hangout and enjoy each other’s company and the scenery. We all would definitely recommend this home to anyone that wants a nice peaceful getaway.
