    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It had been raining all day when we arrived and we had to walk through a large puddle on the sidewalk to get to the house. It was in a wonderful location just steps from the beach! Everything was very nice - I had never stayed in an older home before, the bathroom and the kitchen were updated nicely. I did notice that electrical outlets were overloaded and there was not a working smoke detector. The washer/dryer were in the unfinished basement and I had to go outside to take care of laundry. It was inconvenient and in the rain, not possible to use. In spite of the few inconveniences, our stay was wonderful. We had a great time. I will probably stay in a newer home, on the Beachwalk property next time however. I would recommend this property with reservations. I really didn't like the laundry location."

  • Third year in a row -- a wonderful week (again)

    "We keep coming back to this house, and for good reasons. It's perfect for a family reunion -- plenty of room, and the screened in porch is great for long dinners. The new grill outside and the kitchen improvements are nice upgrades, and my teenagers loved the basketball hoop. The location is great -- perfect for nice morning walks up the the corner shops for coffee, and just a few minutes to the beach. We made bonfires almost every night! My only worry about recommening this place so highly is that it will be harder for us to keep coming back!"

  • Very nice property and incredible view of the lake!

    "Very positive experience overall, comfy place with an outstanding view of Lake Bellaire. Owners easy to work with and Shanty creek has great amenities, beach club, restaurants, fitness center, golf etc. Shorts is a must stop place and you can't beat the Dockside restaurant on Torch Lake for lunch or dinner."

  • Fabulous "Sandcastle on the hill"

    "From the very beginning of searching and inquiring about rentals, Pat's communication with me was great. The house sits at the end of the street so there is really only one close house neighbor on the one side. We rented this lovely home for bringing in the New Year with friends of ours. Our expectations were exceeded when we noticed how fully stocked and clean this house was. It really has just about all you need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. This is an older home that has been updated nicely for the layout. The home decor is fantastic. The living room was equipped with a gas fireplace that we used our entire visit. The dining area has a huge eight seat table. The kitchen has newer appliances and has everything you need for cooking and the fridge has an ice maker. The eat in kitchen has bar stools for the counter and a small table that we used for euchre. All this overlooks the park and channel of Lake Michigan with a wall of windows. The master bedroom is off the kitchen and it is a nice size. The bed is absolutely huge. There is no tv in this room. The attached bathroom is large and the shower pressure is grrrreat. The laundry room is off of that and it is equipped with nice and new appliances, complete with detergent, softener sheets and stain spray. We did a few loads of laundry during our visit. The upstairs has no bathroom so our pals that slept upstairs had to come down to the main bath that is off the kitchen. This is a cute bathroom and actually backs up to the opposite side of master bedroom but we didn't have any issues with sound while they took showers. The bedrooms upstairs do not have tvs. Our pals said they slept comfortably. The downstairs/converted garage has a full bath, a sitting area with an additional full size fridge and a separate bedroom with a bunk bed, two twins and a flat screen TV. All perfect for the kiddos or adults that want privacy. There are a lot of stairs so I would not recommend for people that may have issues. The outdoor area has multiple decks that would be great for warmer months to hang out on. The hot tub, we can't forget the hot tub. We absolutely got our use out of it. Ahhhhhhhh... The smaller back yard has a firepit, picnic table and lawn chairs. Overall, this place was great and the little touches are really appreciated that the owners have put into it for renters to enjoy. We definitely want to come back again. Feel confident with booking this for your next getaway! Thanks again, Pat!"
