Great space and super pool!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Beach Gallery! It was our annual summer vacation with my 13 fam members -- 8 adults, 4 kids & a baby. The house was laid out wonderfully with lots of space - a full living room and sitting area upstairs and equally as much space downstairs. The kitchen and 3 bathrooms are all newly updated and spotless. We were so happy the dining table seated 8 and then we could seat the kids at either the breakfast bar or the table off the kitchen. We enjoyed night after night of family dinners! There were a lot of games on the shelves for the kids to play, but we didn't spend much time inside. The back had a GREAT pool. We couldn't keep the kids out! The hot tub was super as well. The house had a docking station for our iPod, which was great. The private beach is one house away down a short path. The beach, I'd say about 100 yards wide, is contained by rocks on either end. We wish it was a longer beach so that we could take walks. That was the only drawback. The house is close to town and we enjoyed frequent walks along the marina and to Oinks for ice cream. Overall is was a great week!

Small suggestion for owners -- we were regularly confused by the multiple remotes for the upstairs TV. Perhaps a print out with instructions left on the coffee table would help. Also, wasn't sure what all the buttons were for on the hot tub. Again - a small print out on how to change temp, turn on/off lights and also the jets would be nice. :). The owners were very responsive to any questions or issues we had while there, so I know they would appreciate the feedback!

Fabulous wedding weekend home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding in the area last weekend and rented this property for relatives to stay for the festivities. The home is exactly as pictured, immaculately clean and comfortable. Pool, hot tub and fire pit made for outdoor fun despite cool Fall temperatures. Rent this home if you can get it and you will not be disappointed! Owner very available to show us how things worked at the home and to answer any questions. Best rental property we have ever booked.

great rental

  • 5 of 5

this was the perfect house for our family reunion. came from NY, Colorado and Atlanta and everything was terrific, house was perfect when we arrive, super clean and new, all beds very comfortable, kitchen fully equipped, pool fabulous, hot tub inviting, and lake/beach a short 2 houses away down a little path.

Vanessa was great and responsive, we ran out of propane for the grill and a new tank was at our door step with an hour. all the beds were new and firm and very comfortable.she has a pack and play for the baby. the pool service came and cleaned the pool during the week but it was not really needed as the automatic cover works wonders to keep out leaves etc. great TV, great internet, cell phone service was not great but we were on vacation so no big deal. we really hope to come back again.

Beach Gallery Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our three families met for a vacation getaway at this beautiful lake home and thoroughly enjoyed our week with children and grandchildren. The home is exactly as pictured and renovations recently made are outstanding -- beautiful wood floors and tilework. The kitchen is first class with granite and stainless steel appliances and is very open to the living area via the breakfast bar and looks out to the breezeway and pool from the sink area. The breezeway was a good place for meals and kids to read and do "homework". Everyone enjoyed the saltwater pool and hot tub -- the pool has a solar cover which keeps the water clean and warm. We used the firepit for relaxing conversation ...and smores. The entire home was roomy, clean and well maintained. Communication was great. We explored the public beach in New Buffalo, drove to Saugatuck for a dune buggy ride, went to St.Joe/Benton Harbor for kids' activities and Silver Beach for swimming. What a fun vacation! Highly recommended by all of us.
