  • Great Spring Break Getaway

    "This house will exceed your expectations. It is beautiful and comfortable inside and out. Everything was clean, spacious and comfortable. Our party of ten had more than enough room to spread out and enjoy our stay. The views were amazing looking back over the town of Winter Park and the ski area. We can't wait for our next getaway to this great home."

  • Sehr schönes Haus, genauu wie auf dem Foto

    "Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in dem Ferienhaus verbracht und den Pool sehr viel genutzt. Man kann ohne Probleme zu Fuß in die Innenstadt laufen, es gibt aber in der Nähe auch eine Bushaltestelle und der Bus hält direkt am Cours Mirabeau. Die Vermieterin hatte für uns sogar einen Transfer vom TGV-Bahnhof zum Haus organisiert und war insgesamt sehr hilfsbereit. Wir würden jederzeit das Haus wieder mieten."

  • Everything we hoped for and more!

    "This condo was so perfect for our family of five: 2 adults and 3 small children. I loved that we were on the same side as the Gulf and we did not have to cross any streets to get to the beach. From the second floor lanai you can see a small sliver of the gulf but the lush landscaping made up for that. I love that there are beautiful palm trees surrounding the lanai and lining the back sides of all the condos. When we opened the windows of the bedrooms, we could here the trees rustling. The condo facility takes great care of the grounds. There is a large cobblestone brick driveway that runs through the condo and it gave the kids a great area to play and run around. This was a slow period so we did not encounter lots of traffic on the street. It is a short doable walk from the condo to the beach. There is a small boardwalk to cross and they provide showers to wash off as you walk back to the condo. The beach was soft and had lots of shells to entertain the boys. We would go about twice a day. The condo provided beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, shelling equipment, a cooler, and everything else that you can think of. Kathi was there for us on the phone when I had questions. This place as great and we will definitely stay here again when we return to the lovely Sanibel Island."

Lake Michigan Area Travel Tips

Attractions at Lake Michigan Vacation Rentals

Lake Michigan is an impressive stretch of water that extends more than 375 miles from north to south. At its widest part, it covers a distance of more than a 100 miles from east to west; on average, it is just over 50 miles wide. The southern parts of the lakeshore are well developed with the metropolis of Chicago being the main center. As you travel further north, the lakeshore is more remote and dotted by the occasional village or small town. The scenery is spectacular and the natural surroundings are a haven for outdoor and adventure activities. In the winter months, there are extensive trails for snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Ice fishing is another popular pastime. In the summer months, many people take to the lake to enjoy a variety of water sports. Boating, sailing and fishing are some of the most popular activities. Young kids can also enjoy waterskiing, wake boarding and tubing on the lake.
