          Couldn’t be happier

          Rented this beautiful home for a girls getaway this past weekend I couldn’t have been more pleased!!! The home was better than I even expected it to be From being clean from top to bottom and even smelling like it was brand new to being stocked with everything you could possibly need from bikes,coolers,beach toys, to anything you could need in the kitchen to makeup remover wipes in every bathroom!!! The girls and I had a amazing time and definitely would or will be doing this again soon!!! I highly recommend this beautiful home for a nice getaway for friends or families!!! Love love loved it!!

            Perfect 40th with Friends

            Property was incredible, house was immaculate, incredibly clean and brand new. Was good for a large group of adult friends who came from out of town to celebrate in New Buffalo and needed to stay the night. The property is more fitted for several large families with lots of kids. We did not utilize the two rooms loaded with bunkbeds. Would definitely come back with our three kids, my brothers family/kids and my sister and her kids. Drawback is that even though it is close to Lake Michigan, it is not walking distance from the beach, there is a little pier that you can fish from, although we did not. Very close to New Buffalo, which is what we were looking for. A 10 minute car ride get you downtown Buffalo or downtown Michigan city. Found out that we could’ve saved hundreds of dollars by going to beachwalkvacationrentals.com instead of VRBO.
