New Buffalo townhome description

You and your family WORK HARD all year long ... Now it's time to PLAY HARD!! It's time to reconnect with your loved one(s) in this great 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath condo located in New Buffalo just steps away from the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. It is your home away from home without all of the headaches as everything is provided for your enjoyment. The condo is fully equipped with linens, bath towels, kitchen, 3 digital TVs, DVD/CD surround sound stereo, and wifi internet service. The unit has all granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, bamboo hardwood floors on the main level, carpeted bedrooms, and a nautical decor throughout.

The front screened in porch is great for those cool breezes as you sip on your morning coffee or as the kids/family play their favorite board game. The roof top deck is wonderful for gazing at the stars at night and reflecting on the activities of the day. The main deck is superb for watching the sunset over beautiful Lake Michigan while entertaining your family and friends or while honing your 'Grill Meister' skills on the gas barbeque.

Whether you choose to read a book from one of the three decks over looking Lake Michigan, take a swim in the lake or private association pool, talk about old times with family/friends while in the heated Jacuzzi, or simply take a walk on the sandy beach, this vacation get-a-way is about one hour away from downtown Chicago and its suburbs and only 35 minutes from the University of Notre Dame. Take the train from Chicago's Union Station and in about 75 minutes, you'll arrive at the front door. Take the train into down town Chicago for a day of shopping, site seeing, eating, and/or to your favorite sporting event. It is the perfect place to reflect on old memories while making new ones.

If you choose to get out and treat yourself to the best life has to offer, New Buffalo has it all. You can virtually park the car and walk to a variety of restaurants, bistros, clothing boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, day spas, and wine shops, as well as a grocery store, and pharmacy. In New Buffalo, you can experience the FourWinds Casino; various wineries; bicycle, canoe, and/or kayak rentals; or simply walk along the many trails and sandy shores. In Michigan City (just 15 minutes away), you can visit the Blue Chip Casino, Zoo, and the Lighthouse Place Premium outlet Mall with over 120 outlet stores just waiting for you.

                                My family and I were very, very happy with this property and all it has to offer. Besides the fact that the home was impeccably clean and well-maintained, its amenities, like the roof-top balcony, the main deck, and the bedroom balconies, made our visit here relaxing and enjoyable. Additionally, its proximity to the beach and several well-known excellent restaurants made it easy to walk almost everywhere we went. We also appreciated the 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. quiet time, which made our visits to the balconies that much more peaceful. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

                                Had a great time in this beautiful condo; parked our car in the garage and walked everywhere; loved the pool, almost private, very few people, we were the only ones in the pool after the weekend; love New Buffalo and would recommend this rental to anyone. Short walk to beach and several restaurants and shopping. If you want to see more, small towns are within ten minutes away.

                                Very clean, conveniently located, pool access condo, owners take good care of all units in building. Kids loved watching the trains go by from the porch. Rode the newly marked Harbor Country bike routes several times (30 mile loop available). The only negative is no wireless for unit, found neighbors network to use but really slow. If you don't need to work while on vacation, not a big deal.

                                As many of the reviews, the town home was everything described and more and was a great place for six of us to stay. The location is great - so close to all the shops and restaurants, beach and pool. My two year old son loved to watch the train that went by several times a day. The neighbors were all very friendly and welcoming. We fell in love with not only the place, but the New Buffalo area as well. This was our first trip to the area, but we are already talking about another trip next year. I would recommend this place to anyone. Everything was very organized and the owners were extremely responsive with any questions or concerns we had. Can't say enough good things about our stay! It definitely felt like home for the week we were there.

                                We had a great time in New Buffalo and in this condo. The condo was in a great location (although it is right next to the RR tracks and several trains come through each day). You can walk to the beach, shops, grocery store, restaurants, and marina. We thought the condo was well laid out, clean, and had many supplies that came in handy during our stay (cleaning supplies, kitchen pots/pans, utensils, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc.). Everything that was listed on-line about the property was accurate and we had good communication with the owner of the condo before, during and after our stay. There are several porches on the house that have an excellent view of town and the roof top deck is pretty neat. The pool is across the street but is clean and lots of fun for anyone, including children. My only complaint would be that the TV has poor reception and not many channels to choose from--bring DVD's! Overall, we really liked this property and would recommend it to friends.

                                Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+, girls getaway, families with teenagers.

                                We had 3 couples in our group stay at this vacation rental. Space was perfect and home looked like it was just built. Shows like a model home with all the furnishings. Customer service was excellent and the location can not be beat. Casino Bus stops right in front, and it is in the heart of downtown, walking distance to the beach and everything else. There were no surprises and owner provided quick responses to any questions we had. We will definitely be back next summer.

                                Recommended for: Families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, age 55+, girls getaway, families with teenagers, romantic getaway.

                                Owner response: We are so glad that your stay was perfect in all respects. Since our town home is made available for only a few months each year, comments like this are very much appreciated. Thanks again!

                                My family just returned from a truly wonderful week in New Buffalo and staying at this vacation rental really made our vacation. The unit is immaculate and perfectly appointed with every amenity one could think of. My husband and I stayed there with our two small children and my parents and everyone had plenty of room to spread out so no one felt crowded. It really was a perfect getaway for everyone, kids, adults and grandparents. My 2 yr old loved to watch the trains go by a few times a day- that was a highlight for him and it was really fun for the adults too! We could walk to everything and literally parked our cars for the week... getting ice cream at Nancy's (across the street) was a highlight just about every day and there are some really good restaurants literally a 2 minute walk away. We walked to the beautiful beach every day and then spent time at the pool in the afternoons. The pool is perfect for hanging out and relaxing for kids and adults too! Overall we loved everything about our vacation- the location in New Buffalo and the cleanliness and spaciousness of this vacation rental made it such a pleasant experience. Thanks so much again for Bill and May for their hospitality!

                                We've rented many townhomes before but I must say, Dunescape 18 has to be the best we've stayed at in a long time. The condo was equipped with everything and the proximaty to the beach and shops was superb. The owners went out of their way to make the booking process a non-event and our security deposit was returned within days of our departure. The kids loved the pool/beach toys and I enjoyed going on bike rides as a family with the bycycles at the condo. My wife was amazed at just how clean the place was and didn't feel the need to clean "to her standards". Thanks again for a vacation our family won't forget!

                              About the owner: We fell in love with New Buffalo the first time we visited. We've been hooked on this small town ever since.

                              Why the Owner Chose New Buffalo:
                              We love the small town atmosphere. You can virtually park your car and walk to everything.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                              Your stress will literally melt away. Taking walks on the white sandy beach; watching the sunsets over Lake Michigan; enjoying the quaintness of a small town, its people and shops, puts your mind at peace. If you are a family looking for a vacation desitination with lots of activities or a couple looking for a quiet get away, New Buffalo is the place to visit.
