About Jessica Sendek

We are from outside of Chicago and enjoy getting away from the hustle to spend time with our family in New Buffalo, whether it be at the beach, pool or walking around downtown. We are still exploring the area and enjoy finding all of the hidden gems of Harbor Country. We love creating memories with our young kids at our home in New Buffalo while they play at the pool, build sand castles at the beach, hunt bugs, explore local parks and become connoisseurs of all of the local ice cream shops.

Jessica Sendek purchased this house in 2016

Why Jessica Sendek chose New Buffalo

We love New Buffalo and the location of the property, as we do not have to spend unnecessary time in the car to enjoy a sunset at the beach, stroll downtown or have an evening out at the local bars and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was great. We may want to rent it again next summer. Thanks again.

Lovely house, great location, perfect for groups/families

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with little kids) recently stayed here & had the BEST time! The "extras" were so appreciated. The short walk to the beach & shops was easy for our littles. We look forward to staying here again! Thanks to the owners for such a well kept place.

Our stay was just perfect! Perfect location. The house was clean and had everything we needed. My only complaint was that we ran out of TP and Paper towels. But other than that it was perfect!

We had a great stay at this house. There was plenty of room for everyone in our party of 8, and the house had all the amenities needed. It's located walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and the beach. Highly recommend.
