About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

An executive vacation home tucked magically on what is the greatest location on one of the world’s finest beaches, this one of a kind Grand Bend estate has the perfect blend of privacy and access to the energy to the beach and town. Completely updated by the current owner, every modern convenience is enjoyed with historic treasures, including two Scottish castle fireplaces, a billiard table commissioned by King Edward VII, stained and etched glass panels in the windows and doors. This 5 bedroom beachfront is in a league of its own. Your family and friends will enjoy a spectacular lawn for yard games and a magnificent tiki bar, the center for outdoor fun, along with an adjacent custom fire pit and large entertaining deck. Literally off the dune to the beach. Words fail to describe the magnificence of the sunsets, and the advantage of this location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first cottage rental ever as a family and let me tell you i think it ruined any other cottage we may try renting! The view is absolutely unbelievable, there is a gate to get to a very quiet beach right on the property, a very short walk to the marina and main strip, and the architecture of the house is so unique! We stayed with our dog and 3 year old and almost hardly ever left the property as there was everything there for us with the large yard and beach access. We will be renting again and think its the perfect getaway that is close to home that felt like we weren't even in the same country!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 -- ages 1 to 67 -- stayed here in August and had a lovely first visit to Grand Bend. Plenty of comfy bedrooms and clean bathrooms with a well-equipped kitchen. We spent happy time gathered around the long dining table, enjoying good food off the grill and playing games in the evening. The owner made us feel very welcome, responding quickly to our few questions. We enjoyed easy access to the beach and long walks through the neighboring areas. We would love to return -- but maybe not during the busy Civic Holiday weekend next time.

A wonderful time with Family & Friends

  • 4 of 5

Everyone loved the home, it's all and more than you can ask for.

The only criticism we had was that the views to the beach and marina are blocked by the weeds around the perimeter of the yard.

Overall, everything was wonderful.

PS: If you are over 5'8" the "drop" in the master bedroom sink area you will end up banging your head on it.

The sunsets are spectacular as always

Owner's Response: Ed, Thank you so much for your review and I am so happy that you and your family had a great week. Keeping "mother nature" in check on the dunes is a never ending battle, and while she gets a severe "haircut" several times a year - she is relentless. Well noted on the bathroom ensuite, I have never hit my head on it personally, but I can see how that could happen - I will look into a solution. Thank you again, you were great guests! Dan

Great Time at the 'Bend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 10 day stay at this home in early July 2017. The Tiki bar was the best spot to hang out and watch the day go by.

Amazing New Year's weekend at Grand Bend

  • 5 of 5

Dan's cottage had everything we wanted for our new years weekend. Plenty of bedrooms for my 10 friends and myself. There is plenty of space for activities within the cottage between the billiard room, living space and dining areas. The steam sauna was a perfect way to warm up on a cold day. Dan was readily available by phone or email if we had any questions. The cottage is within walking distance to nearby restaurants as well as the beach. I would definitely recommend this cottage for large groups in summer or winter time. Thanks Dan!

Great location for family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We rented Dan's place for CDN Thanksgiving and hosted 8 members of our family - from seniors to young adults. The place was great. Well equipped and a very good layout that afforded lots of separate spaces for every one to do their thing individually or in groups. Its a great location on the beach and very convenient to stores in Grand Bend. The Sauna and Pool table were especially nice to have.

My one misgiving in giving 5 stars is that the sink garbage disposal became plugged without any misuse and not that much use.. we couldn't dislodge the plug so cleaning up after Thanksgiving dinner was complicated. Still, a great place and and easy to deal with host who was responsive.

Owner's Response: I am very happy you enjoyed my beautiful Grand Bend home despite the fact that their was a problem with the garbage disposal. I have since had the disposal replaced and I am truly flummoxed as to why their was an issue - I suppose sometimes these things just happen. I wish I could have fixed it immediately for you but there should not be a problem in the future. I wish you a wonderful year ahead!

Amazing cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything for a great family gathering. We had an amazing week and really enjoyed all the extras that came with the cottage. Apart from the pool table, the shed has bocce ball, table tennis, balls and beach toys. The BBQ and tiki bar are perfect for the evenings and watching the sun set over the lake. The owner was very responsive and really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

10 of us stayed here and there was plenty of room for us all. If you're wondering about the bedroom layout (we were), the main level bedroom sleeps 2 adults with a huge on-suite. There's 4 bedroom upstairs - 3 of them sleep 2 adults and the fourth is the kids room with two sets of bunk beds. There's two bathrooms upstairs too, all modern and really clean.

If your looking for the best place in Grand Bend then this is it!
