About Sheila

It has been a life long dream to own a home in Michigan. My husband and I purchased this home in May of 2013. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Sheila purchased this house in 2013

Why Sheila chose Southwest

We fell in love with this house when we saw the large, secluded back yard. Towering pine trees surround the large in-ground pool. The home is located a short walk to a beautiful sandy beach. It is the perfect place to get away from it all but be close enough for great shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities.

What makes this house unique

This is the place to go when you want to relax and have a great time with family and friends. Please feel free to email me with any questions, comments or concerns.

Cozy but spacious, ultra-private, we keep coming back again and again all year round!

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed here for a week one summer and loved the huge heated pool plus the ability to walk to the beach just one short block away.

But we actually love coming here in the "off season" even more. The huge wood burning fireplace is the best! The house becomes so warm and cozy. It's in the woods so it feels so private, like a true getaway! Plenty of year round shops, restaurants, etc.

It is a great change of pace from the busy city. I'm a writer, and we have come here a handful of times so I could finish a new draft of something because it is just so peaceful and calming.

We are kind of picky about staying at places that are new and clean. This house has a beautiful new kitchen, and everything else is super nice and very clean. Even though it's a charming woodsy getaway, it is modern and super well maintained.

Only hesitancy in writing this review is that I'm contributing to it becoming less available for our use. :-) (We have been here 4 times in the last 3 months!)

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This house is very roomy and open. It is in a great location with a lot of outside room---which we weren't able to use but in the summer this is the place. Shelia was excellent to communicate with as well.

Perfect Getaway for Summer and Fall

  • 5 of 5

This is our go to vacation home. The house is so nicely done, really comfortable and clean. The owners have done such a great job making sure we had everything we could need for our stay and Sheila is so easy to work with. We have spent time here in both the summer and the fall and never ran out of things to do. The beach is lovely and great for hanging out or taking long walks. There are also so many nearby things to do -- bike riding, hiking, perusing all the local spots. The area is gorgeous in the Fall and is perfect for a long weekend. I highly recommend this for anyone's next rental!!

Fun house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with here with my family and had such a good time! The house is perfect for one or two families or a group of friends. There is plenty of space and a great kitchen. There is also a pool if you don't feel like going to the beach - but the beach is a less than 5 minute walk from the house! Beautiful beach to lay out, swim or make a fire and roast s'mores. The surrounding area is forested and beautiful for walks/runs. We went into a nearby town one night and had a great dinner and fun at the bars. Highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a beach getaway!
