Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I visited this home last weekend with a group of girlfriends. We had 10 ladies for the weekend, and the house was more than accommodating. The rooms are much larger than the pictures present, and the whole house was immaculate. We were SO impressed with the Bluffs neighborhood community. There were some of the most beautiful, pristine houses right on the lakefront. The pool overlooking the lake was breathtaking. The owner was very prompt and professional. I would DEFINITELY recommend this home.

Fantastic home, great space and awesome kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

I visited with my family (7 adults and 3 kids) over new year's eve and we had a great time. Everything was top notch, the kitchen especially and the home had a great flow. There is much room to move around and multiple seating areas to escape to if you want to curl up with a book. We had an awesome time considering it was winter and definitely cold outside but I would imagine this home to be even better in the summer, as it's location is prime for beach goers. We walked about half a block and ended up at the private beach--absolutely beautiful. The drive from Chicago was about 2:20 so not far at all. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a more upscale getaway.

Beautiful setting and exceptional home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (son and daughter-in-law, daughter and son-in-law and 2 grandsons, 3 and 11 months) recently had an absolutely wonderful vacation in South Haven. This home was exactly what we had expected and more. It was a dream come true for my husband and myself. The private community in which this home is located is incredible. We enjoyed the very short walk to the private beach every day. Lake Michigan is so beautiful - - much nicer than the ocean: No salt water stickiness and no creepy ocean critters. Can't wait to go back next year. We are in the planning stages already!!!!

Beautiful home for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our short stay at this lovely and tastefully decorated home. It was perfectly equipped with everything you could want or need for a weekend or summer long "get-away" for a large family. The beach was easily accessible and within walking distance from the house. The owner answered all our questions in a timely way, provided information about the area and the security deposit was refunded within three days of our check-out. I highly recommend this property and found it to be a great deal when compared to similar properties offering much less for much more.

I wanted to let you know ...

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your lovely house. It is the one home we rented from the VRBO website that REALLY delivered what the ad said. In fact, it was even better than we expected. There was nothing that you did not provide to make our week special. The kitchen was the nicest of all the homes we have rented over the last four summers. The pool was beautiful and the view of the lake from there was gorgeous. We walked down to the beach every night to watch the sunset. My grandchildren loved the tennis court even though none of them could really play tennis. We even enjoyed just walking around the neighborhood looking at all the other beautiful homes. This was the perfect house to bring a large family to for a wonderful vacation.
