About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is an outstanding property with high end decorating in a gated complex. This condo has a master suite with king size bed, a second bedroom with a queen and the third bedroom has two bunk beds featuring 4 twin beds. Perfect for sleeping two couples and up to four children as well.

This 3rd floor condo overlooks the pool and has a view of Lake Michigan sunsets. The unit features 4 balconies and is positioned at the end of the building so it has more natural sunlight. The complex has a rooftop patio and kitchen for parties. There is a rental fee for use of this area and reservations are required.

This complex has both indoor and outdoor pools as well as a fitness center featuring various exercise machines as well as free weights.

The complex is located in the heart of downtown New Buffalo so it is a very short walk to restaurants (steps away from the famous Stray Dog Restaurant), train station, grocery store, beaches and public boat slips.

Great stay for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4 night stay here! We had our family (3 kids, 2 parents) plus 2 grandparents. There was plenty of room for us to hang out together. My kids loved walking out on the balconies to see the lake and to wave at the people on the Amtrak. We watched gorgeous sunsets over the marina! The rocky beach is only a couple of blocks away, which wasn't a bad walk. We also avoided driving there because there was a $10 parking fee. This condo is a great location with a quick drive to other cities like St. Joseph, which was only 30 mins away. We loved the little shops along the main drag and enjoyed eating at The Stray Dog restaurant nearby.

The one thing that got old fast was sharing the key fob and key. There is ONE key fob and ONE key. You have to have the key fob to get into nearly everything. I would suggest they get a second fob and key for families to have better access. It's inconvenient when you have two adult couples and you aren't doing the same activity together.

Thanks for a memorable trip! We had never before discovered New Buffalo and were very impressed with the cute town.

New Buffalo 5-star Condo

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a 3-night girls getaway for 5 at this beautiful property. This condo far exceeded our expectations. It was extremely spacious, with tons of seating and sleeping space The decor was beautiful - just perfect. The convenience of the unit couldn't be beat...we were steps away from the Stray Dog restaurant. New Buffalo restaurants, shopping, the beach and grocery stores were just a stone's throw away and were easily walkable. Wineries were nearby. Matt, the owner, was extremely responsive and very helpful. I agree with previous reviewer - the pictures don't do the place justice.

We loved all that the area has to offer, including New Buffalo Bill's BBQ restaurant (it's pretty new and deserves your business...great product, very personable owners), The Stray Dog, Casey's restaurant, Round Barn Winery, Dablon Winery (also fairly new...beautiful tasting room, very nice wines), Hickory Creek Winery (very good wines), Journeyman's Distillery, the Villager gift shop, and Barney's for groceries, and the beautiful New Buffalo beach for walking.

Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing! The pictures don't do it justice. It's very large and spacious with many balconies. We had 6 ladies in our group and enjoyed cooking a couple dinners and drinks at sunset. I was especially impressed with customer service. My security deposit was mailed to me very quickly and I had left something in the master bath that the cleaning service even sent to me! I highly recommend this condo. I hope to rent in the summer to take advantage of the pool and beach.

A Must Stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was just what we wanted and more for a girls getaway weekend. It offered us the comforts of home with access to everything you would want from a beach vacation. The unit has all high-end appliances and updates. Private parking and key card access within the building offered us a since of safety. It's location is within walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. You can actually leave your car parked the entire time you are there. The only issue we had was that during our stay the owner decided to send a repairman to fix the washing machine in the unit. We felt somewhat intruded upon because were not asked if we were ok with the decision. We never intended to use the washing machine during our stay. Overall, we had a wonderful time and look forward to returning to this complex.
