                            My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the upstairs unit with the balcony. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The unit was plenty spacious enough for us, the kitchen was great for making meals and the patio was a wonderful place to relax. And one of the best parts of this place is the location. Right down the road from downtown Saugatuck. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our anniversary!

                            This property is in an excellent location! We felt the best location to stay is on the east side of the river near downtown. We enjoyed walking to get ice cream, play at the park, listen to live music, and check out the shops. While the beach is on the west side it is a long walk from anywhere and the road doesn't have sidewalks- definitely not worth it with young children and beach supplies. The property has been converted into 3 units. The top unit has a balcony, the back unit has a sunroom, and the front unit has an outdoor seating area. We rented the front unit per the owner's recommendation for our family with young children. He said they would be able to run around in the fenced garden area. But, the garden area is not fully fenced and it is shared space with the sunroom unit. I didn't feel it was appropriate for my kids to be loud next to them. Note: the balcony unit doesn’t have child-safe railing on the balcony. The bathroom is nicely remodeled, but the people staying in the living room must walk through the bedroom to use the bathroom. No TV in the bedroom, a problem when the kids go to bed at 8pm. The floor is very uneven, which might be a problem for someone with balance issues (like my toddler). The kitchen is nicely remodeled, but no dishwasher. You may want to bring your own sponge and drying clothes as the ones provided were not really functional. The kitchen is mostly stocked, but did lack a few things. Bring left-over containers, foil, saran wrap, etc. and if you want to bake any frozen items in the oven, bring a cookie sheet. During our stay one of the beams supporting the balcony fell down. Fortunately no one was hurt, but it could’ve been very dangerous. Also, we locked ourselves out. Both doors to our unit have self-locking deadbolts. While the lockboxes were meant to solve this problem, the deadbolts also have a switch on the inside that once flipped will not allow the key to work from the outside. We could have gotten in the back door, but the owners did not supply us with the proper key. The unit is very clean and it was nice not paying a security deposit or doing any special cleaning when leaving. The owners were readily available by phone, pleasant, and willing to help. The unit was affordable and available for stays shorter than one week. These are all big pros as well as the excellent location. I would recommend this unit for a couple, but not for a family with young kids.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments. Some does not relate to us such as the road conditions or the location of the beach being on the other side of Saugatuck. We also can not change the location of the bathroom and we agree it is for close friends or families. The same is for the TV, as most guests spend time outdoors, and for couples or families one TV in the living room has been practical. We do not advertise a dishwasher. Therefore, we do provide towels and sponges and more is available upon request. We also provide paper towels which are disposable and provide flexibility. The upstairs has a balcony and railing. This was not were this family stayed and we point that out to our guests and we recommend the lower floor to people who have smaller children. The pictures are on the website for parents to decide and we are glad to provide any details. The garden is surrounded by bushes which prevent going in and out. We did not say fenced and is large enough in the back to provide an area of playing such as Badminton without disturbing anyone. Of course the noise level has to be appropriate to the neighbors and to a residential area and is mentioned in the contract. As for the post that fell, we were advised that it had been torn from its bolts and we also found a futon broken in 3 places as well as severely stained chairs. The unit is not damage proof and we fix any damaged items the day it happens as long as we know. The locks we have a standard and we provide only keys for the main entrance which keeps things simple for the renters and we expect that they will be responsible. We had many renters during the past years and almost everyone has treated our place with great care and we thank all for their care and therefore we do not charge security deposits.

                            This location was ideal for our young family - it was so easy to put our son in the stroller and walk the two blocks to downtown. The veranda offered opportunities for late night dinners without disturbing baby's sleeping. The place was clean and nicely decorated. We had positive customer service from the owner even though we booked at the last minute. The ONLY negative was that I couldn't find a hair dryer and the description stated a hair dryer would be provided. Overall, a great place and I've already recommended this property to others!

                            Owner response: We are sorry for the inconvenience. We have a hairdryer in the closet with the extra towels. We also provide contact numbers for our handyman and he can attend to the needs of our guests. We thank very much for the compliments and we are glad our guests had an otherwise comfortable and enjoyable stay.

                            Location! Location! Location! We enjoyed this part of the condo best because it is just 2 blocks from the heart of downtown Saugatuck, an easy walk.  The owner was very easy to reach and helped us with pressing issues.  The size of the unit was perfect for two of us and the bathroom was nicely redone.  The accommodations satisfied most of our needs.   There were, however, several things that were lacking.  First, the unit advertised was not the unit we got.  After we signed the contract we noticed that it was an upstairs unit and not the garden unit with a screened porch but the balcony was very pleasant to enjoy.  Second, the bed was well worn and not comfortable. Third, the kitchen lacked sufficient cooking utensils and there were no dish cloths.  Fourth, there was only one wash cloth in the unit for our 5-day stay.  Fifth, we were told there were cable TV problems but there wasn't a cable connection even available in the unit.  Finally, it was very hot the day we arrived so we turned on the air conditioner and it wasn't sufficient enough to cool the rest of the condo through the night.

                            Owner response: This year we have put in central air conditioning, and we have central heating if necessary. We have DISH System this year with 120 Channels and HBO, Cinemax and Showtime. We have updated the bedroom with Art Van furniture and queen sized bed. The kitchen is remodeled and additional utensils, pots and pans were added

The owner was extremely helpful in answering all my questions. We loved the shops are enjoyed dinner and the band outside at the Butler restaurent right on the water.

                            We stayed here over Memorial Weekend. It was super clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was there for us and it was SO close to downtown, but had a nice secluded feeling. I loved the garden area and the screened in porch for our morning coffee. We absolutely LOVED it here! Will definitely be back. This was the perfect condo for our vacation.

                            My family of 4 (2 kids ages 5 and 6 months) stayed here for a week. The location cannot get any better! We were close to all of our family that was also staying in Saugatuck for the week, and we love being able to just walk to downtown. The condo was perfect for us this year, and the screened in porch was great for us when the kids were asleep. Selim is great to work with and very friendly! The condo was clean and had all the linens that we needed for the week. Great place to stay for a couple or young family!!!!

                            I stayed at this property with my wife and two small children and had a terrific time! The location to town was perfect (3 blocks), and the fact that there is a screened in porch to hang out in at night after the kids are asleep, was perfect! We loved Saugatuck and we loved this property!

                            We made a last-minute decision to escape to Saugatuck for three days during the week. We found the owner very easy to work with and were very pleased with the accommodations. It was perfect place for my wife and I to escape to, a cozy, comfortable place with a quiet backyard. The place is somewhat old and worn but clean. We greatly appreciated access to the washer & dryer. (Somebody even folded our laundry when we left it in the dryer.) It was two blocks to the downtown, easy to walk to but away from the traffic and noise. Upon arriving Monday afternoon we noticed that the A/C unit was installed in the living room window instead of the bedroom as advertised. We called the on-site maintenance man and left a voice mail asking if it could be moved. By the time we got back from dinner, a new A/C unit had been installed in the bedroom allowing my wife to sleep more comfortably. The maintenance man then stopped by to see if we were comfortable and if we needed anything else. The only adjustment we had to make was when we realized the bed in the bedroom was only a full-size; we were expecting a queen-sized bed. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it.
