Steps Away from the Sandy Beach by Michigan Lake! Wi-Fi Hdtv
average rating of 4.75 based on 30 reviews

Thanks for our stay. Overall, it was very nice, the location was perfect to get to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We would have appreciated a more fully stocked kitchen. We bought, and left there, dish soap, a scrubbing sponge, and 2 washcloths, one each for the kitchen and bath. It was impossible for us to really get the dishes washed well with only that little brush. Items we needed and did without were measuring cups and spoons, rubber scraper, foil and Saran Wrap, and small plastic containers. We also would have appreciated a bathroom floor mat. All in all, though, we had a very nice stay! Eating breakfast and lunch out on the deck was wonderful!! Thanks!

Really nice and so close to the beautiful beach!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was literally a two-minute walk to the beach. The house was completely adequate for what we needed. The bedroom was nice and we loved the balcony. it was like the perfect little apartment for two people. The only thing that I think was missing was maybe an iron. We really needed one and there was not one there but besides that everything is great.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for coming and staying at our place. I wish you mentioned to me that you need an iron in advance or even when you checked in and did not find. There is one for special requests. We could have satisfied your need right away.

Nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean, working air conditioner. Host very accommodating with communications and providing beach chairs for our stay. The view of the lake is now obstructed with landscape. However the deck was delightful. Whimsical touches with decorating. Beach accessible.
