"Great house for large group"

by Ted C.


The house is even better than the pictures show. The house is truly in a woodland settling and is very peaceful. Nice neighborhood. Public access beach is only a mile away in Michiana, MI. Michigan City also has a nice beach. Only ten minutes away. The neighborhood playground is only a couple of blocks away. House has lots of room. There were 13 of us on this trip. The screened porch was a favorite. Teens liked the large 3rd-floor bedroom. Basic Kitchen equipment is nicely stocked. Good parking, including garage space for our four vehicles. The management company was very responsive to our questions. Would stay here again!

"Perfect location"

by Shirley B


The rental had everything we needed. Very spacious for our family. We were able to spread out individually to do yoga, work. Meditate, do puzzles & play games and watch the Olympics. When the power went out, Ron responded promptly. Questions & concerns were handled quickly. Wish we had more time. Enjoyed our stay!

"Loved the house!"

by Valerie K.


The house has a wonderful design. It is full of light. The living-dining area is open and comfortably accommodates multiple activities (watching a movie, playing card games, snacking, art activities). The beds/bedrooms are comfortable, nicely decorated, and meet the needs of couples, young kids, and teens. Our 8 and 9-year-olds loved the twin room with its "stuffies", books, and games. Toddlers loved the books and peaking through the stair window. Our teenage boys slept in top story room, out of sight, but unable to sneak past the adults in second storey bedrooms. Loved the kitchen, location of bathrooms, having access to laundry, the large grill, and quiet morning moments in the screened porch. Artwork throughout the house is a plus. The location is secluded, surrounded by trees with an occasional deer passing through. Kids rode their bikes in the quiet neighborhood and played games outside the garage. You have to drive to most everything, but grocery and great pizza are close by, as is the botanical garden. Beaches are an easy drive. Outlet mall was a good rainy day activity. Teens and parents both thought it was relaxing and liked it better than Florida.

"Private and roomy"

by Kris E.


This house was great for our annual girls' trip! Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, and seating in the shared areas. We loved the covered porch! This property is nestled in the trees, so it felt like we had some privacy. It was a pretty quick walk to the beach. We would definitely rent this property again!

"Great Home with plenty of room"

by Katherine H.


Our extended family enjoyed our stay. The house is roomy, bright and sunny, and fairly secluded. The walk to the nearest beach (Duneland Beach) is quite manageable, but it is only available to homeowners with passes on the weekends. They have a guard stationed at the access point then. During the week we had no problems enjoying the beach. The layout of the house is great, although the picture of the floor plan is slightly misleading as the one long bedroom is actually up on the third floor. The screened in porch is delightful and during this COVID-19 social distancing era, we were able to spread out and still enjoy each other's company.

"Great House For Friends Or Family"

by Sam F.


We had a wonderful time at this property! The house has ample space and lots of privacy for your individual guests. Screened-in porch was by far our favorite part - it's perfect! WiFi and A/C we're seamless. The only thing I wish we understood was exactly how the beach access works. On weekends the Duneland association won't let you onto the beach without a pass, which we did not have. I wish I had a little more clarity on this at first, as we were surprised to be turned away after several days without issue. Regardless, we love this house!

"Lovely vacation home"

by Mary B.


My daughters and their families stayed while visiting for a week. They enjoyed the house very much and loved having all the space for their group. Especially loved the screened porch in the evenings!
