Great location, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. Spacious, clean, well-appointed, and nice layout. We loved walking to the little Union Pier Market for essentials; shopping at the surf shop; devouring the sweets at the ice cream shoppe and bakery; and lunching at Nani's (our favorites include Sweet & Spicy dog and almond or bacon maple muffins). We were so impressed with the owners who had everything for us including board games, video games, beach supplies, and an extra gas tank for the grill when we ran out mid-dinner prep. We would definitely stay again! Our only complaint was the rental agency - not very helpful or friendly when making our reservation and when we experienced a little issue with power during our stay. We also thought the expectation to launder all sheets and towels before departing at 10 AM was a bit much in addition to housekeeping fee. For a week long stay and multiple people using 5 beds, we had to wake up early to do all the laundry. This was an unusual expectation based on our frequent VRBO rental experiences. Oh well, we still thought the cottage was delightful and would recommend it.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cute home in the heart of Union Pier. Literally down the street to the steps to Lake Michigan made for lazy days at the beach for our family super easy to walk to, and enjoyable. We were able to cook meals in the kitchen, which had everything we needed to make our meals, and we enjoyed being able to eat them in the enclosed porch. The beds were comfortable, and the home was very clean and comfortable for our vacation. The home was very spacious, and the yard was large and spacious. The fire pit is an added bonus. We went to Milda's Deli up the road from the house and had great eats and were very impressed with the coffee selection. Very impressive to find good coffee within walking distance from the beach! Great home. We will be back soon! Thank you Waya Rentals for making the vacation rental home search easy and no stress. Your office staff were prompt to respond to emails from the start of our vacation planning to the end of our stay. They also know the area well and were able to recommend some good places to check out.

The Place to Be

  • 4 of 5

Very nice rental home in Harbor County Michigan. It's in a quiet town just 3 miles north of New Buffalo. It's got a family room with a fire place and dining room table. The kitchen is fully furnished with an large island to prep meals. All the amenities you expect in a modern home (HD TV, etc.). It got a large sun room and backyard with a fire pit and grill. Bedrooms were well furnished and the bathrooms had skylights. The master bath has a stone shower and bench. It's a nice cozy place to stay while your enjoying the county.
