                            We have rented in NB for a week in August the past 4 years and found this townhouse to have everything we wanted. The location is perfect- short walk to the beach and restaurants (especially The Stray Dog) but still very private and quiet. Even on the busy Ship and Shore weekend we had no noise or traffic problems. You can park the car for the week and walk to everything! We had 6 adults for the week and were very comfortable. The owners have equipped the townhouse with everything you would need- plenty of towels, linens, kitchen utensils, pool floats, paper products and laundry supplies. The space was clean and organized and included menus for area restaurants and info on things to do. The owners were very friendly and easy to communicate with but not intrusive. The pool was a great place to gather and relax and never crowded due to the small number of units that share it. If we could add anything to this unit it would be a larger mirror in the bedrooms to help when everyone is getting ready at the same time and cable on the 2 tv's. We really couldn't find anything else this rental was lacking and would highly recommend it to family and friends! Thanks Deb and Anton for a fun and relaxing vacation!

                            Overall excellent location to beach and town. Landlord helpful and property clean. Beds were not very comfortable. It would have been nice to have a larger mirror in bedrooms.

                            Recommended for: Tourists without a car.

                            Owner response: Thank you for choosing to spend your vacation at "Life is Good." Sorry we didn't get a chance to help you adjust the Select Comfort sleep number beds to your preference. Typically, the oversized mirrors in both bathrooms have been adequate, but we will certainly look into the matter.

All you need to do is pack your suitcase and tooth bush, and your set. Walking distance to beach and Lake Michigan. Owners are very friendly, and great to work with.
