We had such a great week and the house was perfect - from the pool to the hot tub- also a walkable location! The house had everything we needed!

"Perfect Family Retreat"

by Mary & Phil P.


This was a return visit to this property for our family. It is the perfect location and set up! Access to pool, hot tub, fire pit, nature walk, playground, outdoor track and Lake Michigan. House is clean roomy and well stocked with everything needed. Kids love the triple bunk bedroom! This return stay did not disappoint! We definitely plan to return again. Great memories!

"Great home for 2 families w/kids"

This house had everything we needed for cooking,pool,beach and relaxing. The house was easy to get to and close to downtown. We can't wait to come back soon.

"Beautiful home and surroundings"

by Jeff J.


We enjoyed our stay. The home was cozy and immaculate. The pool and surroundings were awesome and everything we were looking for in a vacation get-a-way.

We had a wonderful stay at the "Second Chance Retreat" in New Buffalo and Waya Rentals provided timely and excellent service throughout the rental process. The home owner was extremely welcoming and provided many extra amenities. At the house we enjoyed the outdoor shower, the hot tub, the fire pit, the communal heated pool, and the beautiful park across the street. We walked to the shops, beach, and restaurants in New Buffalo. I would recommend Waya and the "Second Chance Retreat" without hesitation!

"Great setup for two families with kids"

by Joanne F-C.


We had such a lovely stay. House is fully stocked for cooking. Kids loved bunk beds. Super quick walk to pool. Playground across the street. Walk to BBQ joint. And just a few minutes drive to groceries, breweries and restaurants.

"Accommodations for the Perfect Vacation"

by Joyce G.


This is the second time our family has used this homey, fully equipped, beautiful setting cottage to entertain the whole group. Three generations and everyone loves it. The pool is super to have because the beach had several red flag days but the grandsons could still play in the water. The house has everything needed for relaxing, cooking and slumber. Debbie has thought of so many extras it is like a 5 star hotel. The grand boys are asking about next year!! The park across the street is another perk if you have young kids, even has bike paths!
