Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Office, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-18)

Come enjoy our beautiful home! It is a perfect location near the beach, as well as golf, tennis, basketball, and a park. Along with the heated pool and the sand area for kids to play, you may never even need to leave the house.

The home has 6 bedrooms. One downstairs bedroom has a king bedroom with seating area (with trundle beds) and attached full bath. The second downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, also with attached full bath. The master suite is located on the 1st floor, and includes a whirlpool tub and giant stone shower. Also on the 1st floor is the office area, which has a crib and changing table for little ones, as well as a laundry room with front loading washer/dryer. On the second floor, there is the 'kids room' which has a set of twin size bunk beds, a set of full size bunk beds and a toddler bed, as well as a full bathroom. Two other bedrooms on the second floor include a queen size bed and a king size bed, and share another full bathroom.

There are many areas to relax, including the three-season room off the kitchen, the loft area on the 2nd floor, and the main family room on the 1st floor. The three-season room includes comfortable seating and a flat screen tv. The 2nd floor loft has a flat screen tv and comfortable seating. The main family room includes 2 couches and loveseats, and is set up for family game time.

There is also plenty of seating for meals, including a dining room table for 8, kitchen table for 9, and the dining table on the deck with enough seating for 12.

The outside is even more fun, with a full fenced in back yard. There is a putting green if you want to brush up before your golf game, a large sand area for kids to play, or adults to get in a little beach volleyball or badmitten. There is also a large, in-ground sports pool perfect for cooling off.

For those who like to enjoy the outdoors, there are beautiful roads connecting several areas of Grand Beach, and various beach access spots for a relaxing walk or bike ride.

At the same time you are within a 10 minute drive to Michigan City, IN for shopping, dining, etc. and you are also only minutes from the downtown New Buffalo area with many restaurants and activities. It provides the best of both worlds for your vacation.

About Laura Jachim

Our extended family purchased this home in 2011 as a vacation home. We travel together as a family (grandparents, 4 siblings and spouses, and grandkids), and now have a place to go often and enjoy spending time together. We have traveled together in various parts of Michigan, as well as California, South Carolina, Florida, etc. and we are excited to spend time here. together.

Laura Jachim purchased this house in 2011

Why Laura Jachim chose Southwest

We have vacationed in many areas of Michigan from South Haven all the way to Long Beach, Indiana' and we love New Buffalo the most. It is very centrally located, and has many activities to keep all ages entertained.

What makes this house unique

The house is so large that it allows a large group, whether friends or family, to enjoy spending time together, while also having enough space for private time as well. We have children ranging from 17 to newborn, so the house is equipped with a variety of items for entertaining all ages. We also enjoy playing games together, whether board games, video games, or outdoor sports, so the house is well equipped for vacationing. We also love to cook together, so the kitchen is ready for large groups and is well equipped.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately the weather wasn't so great so we didn't take full advantage of outdoor space but that's uncontrollable. Was perfect for a weekend away!

Great House for our Group

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic for our needs. We had 14 adults and an infant. The host had infant equipment ready for us which allowed us to travel lightly. There was plenty of room for the 14 of us to spread out and enjoy each others company. The kitchen had everything we needed and enough parking for all our cars. Would rent again if available.

Lovely Family Property

  • 5 of 5

This home is welcoming, with thought put into any comfort and activity a family could enjoy. Rooms are spacious and inviting. My family of 18 (age 7 to 70) had room to gather indoors and outside, but found spaces for quiet time too. The sparkling pool area was our wonderful haven. The location is an easy walk to the beach and shopping is not far. This home lives up to all the promised listing information, a high recommendation.

Fabulous Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family was blown away by the comforts and amenities of the Grand Beach Family Retreat. Our group had 10 adults and 6 children aged 18 mos.to 4 1/2, and we had a wonderful week there. The bedrooms were large and comfortable for the 5 couples, and our older grandchildren loved sharing the children's room with the 2 bunk beds, and enough space to actually sleep 7. The kitchen was also large and well-equipped, and it was very helpful to have the extra refrigerator downstairs. The owners provided a booster chair with a tray, but we ended up bringing our own chair-top high chair and two boosters, which helped with our 3 littlest ones. But there were plenty of child-friendly dishes, as well as a crib, pack'n play, and changing table in a small, separate room on the main floor. We also enjoyed the 3-seasons room and upstairs family room, both with large TVs, where people could have some quiet time to play, read or watch a show before nap or bedtime. By far, though, the best part was the outdoor space. The deck was immense, with some shaded seating, a huge table, areas for sunning, a large grill, and the hot tub. The pool was large enough for everyone, and the adults enjoyed the volleyball net that was there when we arrived. The automatic cover kept it clean and safe when not in use, and was easy to maintain. The little ones also loved the sand area, and all ages enjoyed the large putting green. The location of the home was also great; just a 2 block walk to the beach, but we drove into New Buffalo just a few minutes away for their beach, as well as groceries, etc. We also drove 45 minutes to St. Joseph, which has a fabulous splash pad, which all enjoyed. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation, and we would love to come back again.

Wonderful Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (ages 10 months to 63) had a terrific time at this marvelous house in Grand Beach. The house was well appointed and kept up. Everything you would need to have a perfect vacation was there. The backyard is a play haven with a pool, jacuzzi, putting green and sand area for the little ones or adult bocce. The beach is a few blocks away and lovely. Grand Beach has a wonderful 9 hole golf course that you can just walk onto and play for a fraction of what you usually pay for golf. There is so much to do in the area - great restaurants, shopping, beaches, boating, kayaking, golf, biking etc.

The house was very spacious with a huge deck with ample seating and lounging and nice grill and several living rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and they had lots of baby/child equipment which was great for us. The owner was very easy to work with and helpful with my questions.

We would rent this property again in a heartbeat as it was wonderful and we still have more things we want to do in the area.

The only thing I would say and it is not a criticism but a FYI. There are a lot of stairs to get to the first floor so if you have elderly people in your group you should keep this in mind. However, once they get to the first floor there is a huge master bedroom suite and everything else such as the deck, living areas and kitchen are on that floor.

We would highly recommend this property.

Great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious with plenty of places on the main level to gather for games and conversation. The outdoor space is fabulous. The kids loved the pool, golf and play area. The tables on the deck provided the space for us to eat meals together. Our only compliant is that it would be nice if there were two bedrooms on the main level for the convenience of older people in our family who found the stairs to be steeper than they are accustomed to.
