Guest Reviews

Lived on the screen porch! by Sarah K. 09/21/2018
Wonderful house for four adults and three little kids. We lived on the screened in porch all weekend and snuck in some hot tub time after the kids were asleep - so relaxing! It was a great surprise to have toys there the boys could play with - they couldn't get enough of the trucks. Close walk to the beach and the neighborhood was just beautiful to wander around.
Wonderful and cozy by Adam Z. 07/03/2018
My husband, daughter and I had such a fabulous stay in Whispering Pines. It had everything we could possibly need (even toys for our daughter to play with)! The neighborhood is beautiful and so close to a very nice quiet and private beach. We felt right at home in the house - it was so homey, cozy and clean. We especially loved the screened in patio. Highly recommend this area and property!
Great wooded location with a hot tub, grill and fire pit. Short walk to beautiful LSD beside lake by Stephanie 06/30/2018
House was nice. There was plenty of beach towels, chairs, candles, grill equipment, laundry and dishwasher soap. I brought my own but used some of what was there. Tons of games from young kids, great wi-fi connection. Beds were comfortable and lines and towels were new. Would rent in the area again.
Cozy house in the woods! by Debbie B. 10/15/2017
My husband I booked this house for the week of our anniversary and absolutely loved it. It was exactly what we wanted - cozy, quiet, close to town and restaurants. We binge watched Netflix, enjoyed the screened in porch & hot tub and took lots of walks to the beach for sunset. The leaves on the trees are absolutely gorgeous this time of year. Thank you to Ron from Waya Rentals for being on top of everything. We'll definitely be back.
Family Weekend by Deb S. 09/11/2017
Our favorite room was the large screened in porch surrounded by woods. The layout of the house worked well with my husband using a walker and sometimes a wheelchair...open and filled with sunshine. We loved the outdoor fire pit and even used the indoor fireplace one cool evening. The house is a short walk to the gorgeous beach. The beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of towels, and the kitchen was well stocked with pans, paper towels, etc. We loved the large kitchen table for plenty of eating space and games. We'll be back.
Lovely and serene. Great family home! by Lisa C. 08/19/2017
We loved our stay at Whispering Pines! The photos on vrbo really don't do it justice. It is a charming and roomy cottage with a beautiful rear deck and gazebo. And our family just loved the outdoor hot tub; we spent many hours there each evening.

It is located in a quiet and friendly and picturesque neighborhood. We were able to walk to the beach which is a real plus. Some of the closest beach entrances were washed out, so we had to walk farther, but it wasn't too bad as we had brought a beach cart.

The kitchen and overall house was incredibly well-stocked. Half the things we brought were not needed. They even had lots of beach towels and backpack beach chairs and water floaties. The washer and dryer and dishwasher were all quiet and efficient. We did not try the outdoor grill, but it was nice to have as an option.

The two bathrooms and showers are very small and there wasn't very good washer pressure, but it being an older house, that was not too surprising.

One minor suggestion we would make for the owners is to get more living room furniture; maybe a second loveseat or a larger, more comfy couch. It was hard for our family of four to be very comfortable in that room all together.

The Wi-Fi was excellent. Unfortunately we could not get any cell phone signal in the neighborhood, though.

There is a lovely park and playground within a short walk. That was a pleasant surprise.
The beds were pretty comfortable and the pillows were nice, too.

We thought this cottage was a very good value and perfect for our small family! We hope to return. And Waya was very responsive and helpful.
A Wonderful Weekend By The Beach by southwestchief - Chicago, IL 10/26/2016
Our weekend at Whispering Pines was fantastic. The house is cozy and comfortable--the perfect place for a quiet weekend for two. It's also big enough to accommodate a family comfortably. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and feel at home.

Whispering Pines is surrounded by trees and is so quaint! We enjoyed a quiet afternoon lounging in the beautiful screened-in porch and found ourselves taking walks around the neighborhood. With the beach only a few blocks away, each morning and night we took leisurely walks along the shore.

You are close enough to New Buffalo, Sawyer, and Three Oaks--all three towns are wonderful places to shop and eat. A great weekend away to disconnect from the world and enjoy the woods, sand, and water in Michiana Shores!
We loved this house! by Carolyn A. 08/01/2016
Such a nice place for a family vacation! Between the sun, the surf, the wildlife, and the peace, it's very hard to say what we enjoyed the most! The kitchen and dining area was magnificent, the enclosed patio was charming, and the hot tub was refreshing! And then there were the sunsets! It was just the perfect place to get off the grid for a few days!

Thank you for sharing this with us!
