Great house and wonderful area,
Kalaview was a great house for 13 people and dogs. It was very convenient to downtown....much easier to walk than load and unload 6 kids! We all give it a thumbs up👍. Some in the group had never been to Michigan. They now know why we love it so!
Very spacious and accommodating. Very clean and so close to town. Was awesome to just park and not drive anywhere for 3 days. 4th time coming to Saugatuck and this is by far our favorite house. Thanks so much
The Gillette Family
Perfect spot for a large group. Great walking distance to town.
The house was very spacious. Plenty of room for a large group. The house was a bit dirty inside. Cobwebs in corners, floors needing a mop and the outside is in need of a summer clean up. Overall, we were very happy with our stay.
Pictures don't do it justice!
The pictures of this house do not do it justice! The house is much more spacious than it seems in the pictures...especially the basement which has a lot of room and high ceilings. The pictures are cropped a bit close so not to give a good perspective to sizes of rooms. The house is very clean, the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you may need including Keurig coffee maker, blender, dishwasher, iron, etc. All the upstairs had air conditioning available (which was a concern due to another review).
The laundry room in the basement is well stocked including detergent and tools that you may need (if you are handy enough to figure things out on your own). The sink downstairs clogged up but we were able to utilize what was available to clear it out!
The location is great! It is just a little stroll to the heart of downtown Saugatuck which has plenty of great restaurants and shopping!
The only negative that I can think of is that the ceiling fan in the top floor queen bedroom was starting to separate from the ceiling. It did work but we chose not to use the fan.
I would definitely recommend to large groups/family and would return in the future!
Good Experience....for the most part
We had a college reunion group of 12 stay at the house for the weekend and we enjoyed the location and amenities. The only glitches were that there really aren't 3 1/2 baths, only 2 full baths and 2 half baths. This really slowed things down in the morning with the second full bath in the basement as a part of the suite down there where you have to tramp through the bedroom to get to it. Plus, two of the bedrooms upstairs only had single beds in them, which wasn't much of a problem with the large finished basement because we brought a couple inflatable mattresses with us. Overall, a good experience and a good value for an off-season rental.
Great Home for Family Reunion
We have a family of 10 adults and this very clean home was perfect for us. The huge finished basement was the video gaming center (and Tiger baseball HQ) complete with a master bedroom and an additional half bath. The sun porch was large enough to seat all ten of us for meals. The eat in kitchen and the back deck were great for early morning coffee gatherings. In addition, there is a living room with couch and the huge sun porch has a couch. One afternoon, we carted out the tables and ate al fresco in the backyard. The kitchen with nice wooden floor has all the amenities you need plus a crockpot and the all important dishwasher and lots of cubbyholes to put stuff in. 2 bedrooms on the main floor separated by a full bath and 3 small bedrooms upstairs with one window AC for any night that didn't get below 72 degrees. All beds very comfortable. 2 box fans. Location was wonderful. 2 blocks to the river and a market. 3 blocks to the chain ferry. 6 blocks to restaurants, shops, bars. And they accepted our well behaved schnauzer who thoroughly enjoyed the week with us. We brought our own bikes and loved using them. The rental agency was very accommodating and helpful for information about the area! We've stayed in South Haven, Charlevoix, Caseville as well as beyond Michigan, but this was our favorite.
