About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Our Cottage is located in the very front of the Floradale Association. Literally steps away from the heated pool with slide. So convenient for all, but especially if you have kids in your party. You also have access to the Club House, Shuffleboard, Tether ball, Horse Shoes, Tennis and Basketball courts as well as 400ft of private association beachfront and our boat slip without extra charge.

Our cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 with Queen beds, and 1 with 2 sets of bunk beds. Living Room has a Queen sleeper and a Twin Sleeper. There are 2 baths, one with shower only, the other a full bath with tub. There is also a large fully equipped kitchen and large dinning room. The cottage also has a large deck and a large patio area as well with lawn furniture, a outdoor grill, and private fire pit.

We have recently renovated the cottage and it looks amazing. All new Windows, deck, and exterior, as well as 2 air and heat units! This cottage will not disappoint.

Just a few miles away is the state park dunes where you can ride through the sand or walk. Also, you can take a dune ride from Mac Woods or rent a buggy to tear up the dunes yourself. There is also a 22 mile paved bike /hiking trail along with mini-golf, bumper cars, go-carts, and many specialty shops to browse through. So book your vacation today for spring/summer 2016! I hope to hear from you soon!

This cottage is absolutely adorable and is just my style! Updated and has a fun cottage feel! Clean, plenty of room for our family of 5, and nicely equipped with everything you need for your vacation. We love the dunes but the pool was a nice addition and LOVE the shuffleboard!!! Brings me right back to vacationing with grandparents in southern Florida as a kid...we played shuffleboard all the time. Will definitely be renting from Melissa again! :)

A cottage with a lot of charm and updates in a historical resort setting

  • 4 of 5

One of the first positive impressions I got when we pulled up to our cottage was the setting and house itself - nestled among other cottages and close to the pool. The cottage has been updated with air conditioning, ample sleeping and living quarters with a nice deck and large fire pit and grill. It really brought me back to being young and spending time at our family's 20's era lake house in Minnesota. Reminded me of simpler times. A lot of families with kids come here which is a perfect setting for family vacations. Despite our kids being teenagers and grown, they loved the area and considered it the best vacation we have ever been on. I booked this cottage online in March and after looking at their photos posted and available dates - I knew the time slot wouldn't last long. I was very comfortable with online booking since Melissa was so nice and quick to answer questions and offer help. There are nature trails abound, very friendly people and so many activities. They have a private slip for boat and jet ski rental which we used. We took advantage of Parrot's Landing rentals for a boat, wave runner, Jeeps, ATV's and a Razor for the dunes. We also went horse back riding and did a great canoe trip from Happy Mohawk. The cottage also had ample information on all activities in the area as well as shopping, hospital, food, etc. The only recommendation I would have is to make sure and check the propane level on the grill since we came in and it was nearly empty and I had to refill it. I suggest getting a back up. We will definitely consider coming back in the future.

Cute cottage close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was a great place for our family to spend our vacation at. It was close to everything. It only to us maybe 5 minutes to drive down the road to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan every night. The weather was great! We went on 2 dune rides at Mac woods, we rented a pontoon on silver lake, and also did the zip line and go carts down the road! The kids also loved the candy store ! We were a little disappointed in the association beach as it wasn't a swimming beach, but glad that Lake Michigan wasn't too far of a drive. The cottage was great, it had everything we needed except air conditioning, but we still survived!

The only thing the kids were really disappointed in was that the pool was out of order due to a broken part. Melissa the owner was very apologetic about it even though it was out of her hands and had nothing to do with the cottage it self, she gave us a bit of a refund and we are very thankful for that! I would very much recommend Dune Daze!!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at this adorable, beachy cottage, and truly can't say enough good things about it. Not only is the owner, Melissa, so helpful and easy to work with, the cottage was spotless and perfectly equipped (We also loved the new windows and new, large, sun-filled deck). We stayed in the cottage as a family of 7 with kids ranging in age from 4-10. We all had plenty of space and privacy inside, and we all also enjoyed all of the outdoor activities on the property (swing set, sand box, deck, fire pit, association basketball courts, shuffleboard, beach, and WARM pool!). While we could have stayed busy just at the cottage and within the association, we also fully enjoyed the fun of the dunes (including Mac Woods dune rides...a must!), climbing the light house, Craigs Cruisers, lots of ice cream at the Whippy Dip, and exploring the nearby beach towns of Pentwater and Ludington. For anyone looking for a fun family vacation that will create memories for a lifetime, we would highly recommend this property for your stay. Thank you, Melissa!

Boys Getaway

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU Melissa! Dunz Days has been our cottage of choice over the last several years. We keep coming back to the overall experience of: fully equipped, cleanliness of cottage, perfect, perfect, perfect location, size (has accommodated our family of 7 with zero issues), and quick response time from Melissa.

This trip was different. My son is headed to the marines and he specifically wanted to go to back to this cottage to experience it one more time before he leaves. Melissa opened the cottage early and allowed our family (all the boys) to come get away for a long weekend. I sincerely appreciate the accommodation and again providing a clean, updated (deck and windows), and wonderful memory filled home away from home!
