About Mark Votava

My wife and I have been Vacation property rental owners since 1993 , starting with our smaller 2 bedroom cottage , that we still rent out, in Grand Beach , Mi. just 1/2 block from the beach. vrbo isting # 221458

Mark Votava purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark Votava chose Southwest

This property has to be seen to fully understand how much fun it is for a family reunion , or just a weekly vacation in New Buffalo, And don't forget how close it is to the Chicagoland area. When we saw it we had to have it.

What makes this house unique

The quintessential private country setting is right here. And located minutes from everything New Buffalo, and Harbor country has to offer. Sitting on the large full length ,covered , front porch ,watching the sun rise and set, is a truly wonderful experiance,, , its so private and beautiful.

I have another cottage (VRBO# 221458) available about 10 minutes away, that is just a half block off private Lake Michigan beaches. , You can rent both places and have a total of 6 bedrooms plus!. This really works well for family reunions/ groups. It gives you beach rights and plenty of room for that big party, and then plenty of space to get away from everybody and enjoy a day at the beach. It really works well and there not far from each other. About 10 minutes is all.But car parking is limited to 3 cars at the beach house, so please keep that in mind. Call Mark and we can discuss rates for that . You have to book that early though, because we will book up totally by late spring. There is Highspeed at the beach house.
