"We vacationed the last week of July with another family and the entire week was absolutely perfect! The pictures do not really depict this majestic home and property--you are truly in your own private resort. The "back yard" is enormous and leads down to your private dock with comfortable lawn furniture and a fire pit. There are kayaks, paddleboards, life jackets, bikes, fishing poles, beach chairs and a pool table in the downstairs. The house is magical as we had 3 teenage girls and didn't hear one complaint about anything the entire week. As everything is at the house everyone could easily pick their activity- loved going paddleboarding and kayaking a couple of times a day, fishing off the dock, bonfires w/smores and playing pool. There is so much to do without ever leaving the grounds. That being said, you can walk down the street for dinner in Douglas, a longer walk or short ride into Saugatuck. We kayaked into Saugatuck for for lunch one day; went to Holland and rented a boat to go tubing, loved going to Oval beach for swimming and the sunsets (8 minute drive to beach), awesome bike path for bike rides. Every aspect of this home is magnificent. Every room is so beautifully decorated it is difficult to pick a favorite; though the gourmet kitchen with floor to ceiling windows and a view of the Bayou and the amazing screened in porch were hard to beat. It is luxurious while still being incredibly comfortable. The owner, Joyce, could not be more responsive. As your every need is anticipated in this home, you sense that she truly wants your family and friends to have all of your expectations not only met, but exceeded. I would recommend this property without hesitation to any group wanting to have a fantastic week and hope that we have the opportunity to return in the near future. My only complaint is that none of us wanted to leave!"
