About Michael Kochanny

Both Mary and I grew up in and continue to live in the city of Chicago and while we thrive on all the city has to offer we began coming to southwest Michigan during the summers of college and continued as we began our careers. The peace and solitude that we find just a short distance from the hustle of the city re-ivigorates us with every visit. For me there is nothing better than long walks along the incredible beaches (something that I do year round) finished off with a glass of wine, good friends and a fabulous dinner somewhere along the Red Arrow Highway. Michael & Mary Kochanny, Chicago, IL

Michael Kochanny purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michael Kochanny chose Sawyer

We were given a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this very interesting development shortly after the drawings were completed. What began as raw space was transformed in six months to a modern interpretation of a Tuscan villa. We most enjoy the central location within Harbor Country, close to everything, but just a little off the beaten path.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another great time! Although we have never met, it always feels like we are staying a a friends home! Hope to be back in February for Mom's B-day. Have a great holiday season.

P.S. Never had the little ones with us before, the open floor plan and long hallways gave us plenty of room.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property which made for a fun three day retreat with family. It is close to several very good restaurants with Mesa Luna being our favorite. A cute Scandinavian Bakery just across the street that serves breakfast as well as loads of donuts, pastries, pies, etc. Many antique shops along the main road. Nice getaway. Michael and Mary are pleasant and quick to respond to questions. We enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

Perfect weekend/beach get away!

Loved the location for accessing Red Arrow Highway & MI beaches. Bakery across the street & restaurants - all in walking distance. Apartment was in great shape, clean, spacious and comfortable.

Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five (three teens) and a dog and we found this loft to be a perfect fit! We were concerned as it is off of the main road, but you hear nothing and the grounds are impeccable. Love the outside and inside of the loft. The kitchen and baths were well stocked too. It was a solid 15-20 minute walk to the beach but the walk is lovely and peaceful and our dog LOVED it! We also drove, on occasion, and parking at the beach was never an issue. The public beach space is quite small, but we made it work. Harbert Swedish Bakery is the best! And we were only about 10 minutes away from the more active areas of Union Pier and New Buffalo. Would stay here again!

Spacious and exceptionally clean

  • 4 of 5

The loft was a welcoming sight after a day at the beach! The space is well laid out and so clean and well appointed. With three small children in tow, the washer and dryer came in very handy, and the private drive made for safe loading and unloading. We all enjoyed the grassy areas and the back patio, too. It would have been nice to have a porta-crib and high chair (or safe booster seat) available so we wouldn't have had to pack those bulky items. We stayed two nights and would have loved to stay longer!
