"Wonderful home and area"

by Sara R.


This house was very clean and beautifully decorated. Still looks brand new. We enjoyed both inside and outdoor areas. This was a good location as far as family friendly activities. Easy to get to beaches, parks and shopping. The community pool and hot tub at the house were great as well. We all thought the house really made the trip - it was very comfy and cozy! My granddaughter loved the top bunk bed! Communication with the management company was easy, friendly and fast. Thank you Ron. And Debbie too.

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"

"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.


by Lorie B.


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!
