Wonderful location and property
From the minute we walked into the home, we knew we had made the right choice. Welcome cheese and wine was topped by coffee and chocolates. Nice touch. The sweetest act concerned a city water-main break that disrupted water service temporarily. It was not Marta's responsibility, but she still made sure the fridges were stocked with ice and water, as well as larger water jugs for cooking. The water was restored and everything was fine - but the gesture remains as a telling sign of the care the owner has toward ensuring your stay is special. Thanks for a wonderful reunion for the family! We'll be back, for sure!

Marta, you did it again!
This is the 2nd year in a row we have rented this lovely home + cottage for our family reunion. It is perfect! We love being so close to the beach, and we appreciate Marta's attention to details. It feels like we are welcomed into a family home, rather than a generic, sterile environment. Our week was beautiful in every way. We'll be back next year!
Just like home!!
Marta's house is a dream come true for vacationing families. We had 10 adults and eight grandchildren and had plenty of room for all. Everything's included, chairs, beach toys, towels and the house is lovely inside and decks and space outside for all your needs. Lots of bathrooms, close to the beach when the little ones needed a break, & the weather was fantastic ! We enjoyed the fireworks, night sunsets, the bikes and being able to walk to town!
The kitchen is fabulous and we had a great time cooking up local meats from Bobs Meat Market. Thanks, Marta it was a vacation to remember!!
The property was beautiful and very well maintained! Marta was awesome! Thanks for a great weekend!
Perfect Location ~ Perfect Accomodations!!!
This is the third time I've stayed at Marta's properties. They have all that you can possibly need ~ from bikes and beach towels to any spice or condiment!! Awesome is how I describe it. The 5 bedroom house with the other two cottages was perfect for our family reunion. Right across from a park and the beach! Many bikes to choose from to ride the trails... Great gourmet kitchen with tons of seating space. The only problem is that we all wanted to stay longer. Marta is the ultimate hostess leaving lovely bottles of wine, snacks and treats!! Thank you, thank you...
Amazing, totally filled the bill. The owner was so pleasant and easy to work with. A real treat.
We came as a family of 15 and the facility totally met our needs. Lots of area to spread out so everyone had their own space. The front deck itself allowed all of us to even eat together. The fact that so much was within walking distance was another plus. It doesn't sound important but even private parking was so helpful.
I need to comment on the cleanliness of the whole facility, it was amazing. Not many places I go into that I don't feel like I need to clean first. The fact that it was to totally furnished was so helpful, all the basics were provided, even down to kitchen condiments and beach towels.
We were able to take advantage of some of the locals, Express Yourself/Art Barn in/near Douglas/Saugatuck, Farmers Market, I regret that we didn't find time to take in the old downtown theater, I understand that should have been a must. So many options we needed another week to fit everything in.
I'd love to be able to do it again, we'll see. Ruth Birman
This North Beach house has beautiful white sandy beach across the street with no steps access. You relax on the beach or you can walk for miles and enjoy the surf or sunsets. Just a few blocks stroll to downtown for dining, entertainment or shopping.
