Family friendly and so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a quick trip away - opens onto a veranda and in a minute you are at the beach. Simple and clean and great if you have kids.

A little gem almost on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the location 100 yards from the fantastic six mile walking beach. The unit was not large, but large enough for a family of 4 to 6.

The outdoor patio with a grill was a nice feature. The place is very homey and has a wonderful beachy feel with the white and blue color scheme and decor.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for my family of 4. Apartment was as described. It had all necessities. Internet worked great. Tv worked great. Only 5 minute walk over one sand dune to beach. Easy to go back and forth for bathroom breaks or lunch. We enjoyed not having to drive to the beach. Lots to do within short driving distance. We enjoyed playing games on the patio and grilled on the propane grill one night. Everything was clean and worked as it should. We did one load of laundry with no problems. Great memories and we Would return to stay here again. Thank you!

simple and accomodating

  • 3 of 5

Simple and small, but you have all that you need. The interior was well kept, tidy and clean, air conditioned with comfortable furnishings. Beds were in good shape, nice pillows as well. Clean fresh linens for all. The kitchen had the essential utensils and we were able to cook simple meals (not alot of counter prep area). Grill was in good shape and had all the tools you would need to grill, the owner responded promptly when we needed more propane. Fridge was more then sufficient, but no ice maker or trays (easily solved, bought a bag of ice). The interior space was small, 4 people filled the space (but if you're fine sharing space then there is plenty of sleeping space for more than 4). The outdoor patio was wonderful as it gave us room to spread out as well as sunshine (the interior main room doesn't have much natural light as you are on the bottom floor and the windows are beneath the upstairs porch.

We brought our 4 bikes and they were perfectly safe (we did lock them to each other) on the back porch. Great biking and walking along Lake shore drive and down into Michigan city area.

You do share the outdoor space with others and we were fortunate as the other guests were quiet. Directly in front of this unit's patio space is the backyard/parking area for another home. It wasn't an issue for us, but if you want privacy, or a view, then this ground level unit might not be the rental for you.
